This paper discusses the women's suffrage movement from 1896-1920. It describes the history of the movement in the United States and the breakthrough they represented in their attempt to define themselves in equal terms not only towards men, but also on the political scene they had been denied access to. The paper also describes the different paths that women decided to take, despite the accomplishments of the movement.
From the Paper:"At the opposite end of this spectrum, the Women's Suffrage Movement was one of the main forces that stirred the emancipation movement from the idealistic perspective offered above. It was defined especially by the historical developments that occurred in the late 1880s when women were forced to take part in the migration towards California in particular. The constant moves and relocations transformed women in characters equal in power and commitment to men. This in turn offered them the opportunity and moral leverage to rise for their demand to equal men in rights as well and request similar treatment. This was achieved through prolonged picketing of governmental offices, of House White rallies, and jail time spent by the most preeminent advocates for the cause."
