Question: What happened during the women voting suffrage
In the 1800’s women were not given the right to vote unlike men who could.
Frederick Douglass was an African American Suffragist and Rights activist who was one of the only men who attended the Seneca Falls Convention. He was also the only African American person who was there at the meeting in upstate new york. At the convention hundreds of women came to discuss problems or issues leading to women’s rights including the suffrage. He stated that he would not accept his new right to vote if women couldn’t.
2 years later Lucy Stone created the National Woman's Rights convention in Worcester, Massachusetts were nine hundred people showed up to talk and speak
About women’s suffrage and the abolition of slavery, (most of them were men).
Susan B Anthony also attended this convention to listen and speak to others about the suffrage. This main convention inspired her to devote the rest of her life to the cause of women’s suffrage. She and Elizabeth Cady Stanton became friends and created a woman suffrage association, that had a Goal/mission to hold various rights for women including the right to vote.
In world war one President Wilson said that this war is a war of democracy which got women mad.They all agreed that their country couldn’t be an actual democracy if not everyone had the right to vote. President Wilson started to listen to the women’s voices, so in 1920 the 19th amendment was created to give women the free right to vote legally.
Question: What actions are happening in the world to change women’s rights?
62 million girls in the world are not educated. Many reasons cause this like, women aren’t sent to school by being denied of their ability to learn, women and children are abused, assaulted and harassed more than 24 times a minute which causes danger when going to school, sometimes families can only afford to send one child to school and its preferably a man (and many more reasons). Women not educated increases teen pregnancies and birth deaths, which impacts people’s perspective on women.
