  • 1. Women’s suffrage.<br />Megan Ireland.<br />Mrs. Williams<br />P.4 <br />
  • 2. Women&apos;s suffrage is the right of women to vote. The women&apos;s suffrage movement was the struggle to gain the same right to vote as men.<br />People throughout the years, would harass and/or beat women for even thinking that they could have the same rights as men.<br />During US colonial times, voting was limited to adult males who owned property. Many people thought that property owners had the strongest interest in good government; therefore, they were the best qualified to make decisions.<br />

  • 4. In the early nineteenth century, changing social conditions and the idea of equality led to the beginning of the woman suffrage movement. By then, more women were receiving education. Women also began to participate in reform movements and take <br />increased interest in politics. <br />Women and men began to <br />question why women were not <br />also allowed to vote. Supporters <br />of this drive were called suffragists.<br />
  • 5. In some cases, men would make rude signs, and booths to get the point across that women had no right to have responsebilities outside of the house.<br />
  • 6. Of course, the women fought back and gained the right to vote, and become equal with men, creating the 19th amendment. August 18th, 1920. And on August 26, 1920 (for tennessee.)<br />
