Transcript of Women's rights

How Can It Be Solved?
nativism can be solved if we don't judge a book by its cover and condemn the ones who deserve to be condemned. together one step at a time we can make world an even more beautiful place. preventing small things such as nativism and suffrage is just the beggining!
Women's rights
How Was It Solved?
When Abigail Adams reminded her husband John during the Constitutional Convention to "Remember the Ladies!" her warning went unheeded. Women were pushed to the sidelines as dependents of men, without the power to bring suit, make contracts, own property etc. a woman was seen merely as a way of enhancing the social status of her husband. By the 1830s and 40s, however, the climate began to change when a number of bold, outspoken women championed diverse social reforms for women's suffrage. thus led to the year their hard work paid off. on august 18th 1920 the nineteenth amendment was passed which allowed all free women to vote.

What is the problem?
Women's rights began due to the rights of African Americans. This caused the women to start to fight for their rights. At first, women were not allowed to speak for themselves or even to vote. The beginning of the fight for women’s suffrage in the United States, which predates Jeannette Rankin’s entry into Congress by nearly 70 years, grew out of a larger women’s rights movement. That reform effort evolved during the 19th century, initially emphasizing a broad spectrum of goals before focusing solely on securing the franchise for women. Women’s suffrage leaders, moreover, often disagreed about the tactics for and the emphasis (federal versus state) of their reform efforts. Ultimately, the suffrage movement provided political training for some of the early women pioneers in Congress, but its internal divisions foreshadowed the persistent disagreements among women in Congress and among women’s rights activists after the passage of the 19th Amendment.
The drive to reform american society created by the second great awakening opened new doors for women. Many joined reform groups such sponsored by churches.in the early 1800 women couldn't vote,hold public office,serve as juries,any level of higher education,couldn't work in most trades and professions,earned less money for doing the same jobs men did and when they got their money it went to their husband or father!
during the 1800s many groups such as the Anti-slavery Society were made up of women! Since this was a time where industrialization was booming this provided the first real economic opportunity for women outside the home.by 1830 many women took strikes for better wages and better treatment. after a while many people started noticing the similarities in women's rights and slaves' rights. that is when the fight for women's rights took a big change.
nativism is the policy of protecting the interests of native inhabitants against those of immigrants. many immigrants are faced with nativism because they may be viewed beacuse of their home country's decisions. For example a fled immigrant from syria might want to run for mayor and they haveb met all qualifications. they would be faced with nativism because of their background.
