There are many similarities. They both use banners and slogans to spread their message to the world. They both were fighting for equality, the right to vote, and freedom. They both needed to be protected from people.
They are not alike in all ways but they have alot of differences. The slogans for the civil rights people are more creative and the sufferage people don't have that many creative banners but they are good. Sufferage marchers seem to have a smaller group than the civil rights group. In some of the sufferage photo's, men are not marchers but in the civil rights movement, there are men and woman marching.
