Transcript of The women behind the movement.

Important women of
the women's rights
movement What happened to her after the 'war,' was won? Some Background What did she do for women's rights? A LITTLE BIT OF BACKGROUND~ What happened to her? What exactly did she do again? Susan B. Anthony Susan was born on February 15, in 1820. She grew up as Quaker, and her family instilled in her a sense of justice and moral values at a young age. She taught for 15 years, and then became active in temperance(the movement against the use of Alcohol), but was not allowed to speak at the rallies because she was a woman. Her experiences with the temperance movement and her friend Elizabeth Cady led her to join the womens rights movement in 1852. She then dedicated her life to women's suffrages. Even though she faced abuse and opposition, Susan traveled the U.S. campaigning and lecturing to earn the right for women to vote. In 1900 she campaigned for the University of Rochester to admit women. She also campaigned for the abolitionists, and for women to own their own property and keep their own earnings. She was also an advocate for women in the workplace. Susan passed away on March 13, 1906.
She didn't have any children but left behind a legacy
that would inspire many young women. She was a
bright and compassionate woman that won't soon be
forgotten. She was born in 1885 to William and Tacie Paul. Her parents were well off because her father was a wealthy businessman. Her family were Quakers, and believed in gender equality, and the importance of working to better society. Her parents also instilled the importance to stay close to nature and not to be materialistic. Alice was an excellent student, and a veracious reader. Her mother brought her to women's suffrage movement meetings as she was a member of the movement herself. Alice protested against the injustices women had been through by heckling, breaking windows, and rock throwing. She joined the NAWSA (National American Women's Suffrage Association). She and her group organized a parade of women that were marching for their rights, the event got ugly when men started to get violent and the police stood by and did nothing. Although violence broke out, the women got their points across and the movement was on the lips of every citizen in the U.S. She later formed her own group, The National Women's party. They picked outside the White House, and many of them got arrested. While in prison, they staged hunger strikes and protests. The women were beaten, and thrown into unsanitary rat infested cells. She was put into an insane asylum to try to get her to be deemed insane, and when the press found out the public demanded her realease. Sympathy for her and the other women brought their cause support. In response to all this president Wilson passed the 19th Amendment, and women gained the right to vote. Alice Paul passed away on July 9th, 1977. She is a symbol of my right, and every other womens right in America to vote. Without her we might still be fighting for our rights to vote today. She suffered for the women of America, and we owe her all the respect we can offer. Alice Paul
