So Alice Paul and Lucy Burns started their own organization called the National Women’s Party or NWP. Which held the same concepts that the NAWSA but with a more radical or extreme approach. The NAWSA started criticizing the NWP for their methods and for protesting a president during the war.

It was larger than the American Woman Suffrage Association, which it finally merged with. The two women traveled the United States together, giving speeches and urging equal treatment of women in the law and in society. Susan B.

Krauss focuses on two groups of women: African Americans and Native Americans. These women, who are protesting along with the white, blue-collar women, come from a total different standpoint and background, which makes this group very diverse and relatable. Now, the African American working class women come from a place where they had no initial trust in the government. Krauss explains that these women have been victims of racial policies since the beginning and the individual toxic waste issues are quickly tied and viewed as environmental racism. While, white working women have just recently come out into the public arena to protest their beliefs, African American women have extended their work as mothers into their communities as “protectors of the race” (265).
Past Struggles Paved the Way for Women Today American History Since 1865 Gretchen Henderson January 22, 201 Since biblical times, women have been subjugated to allowing others to make decisions for them. There has been a series of assumptions and usurpations of power over women. This is because women were falsely deemed as the weaker gender and referred to as the “weaker sex” and not being able to make life’s decisions on their own. However this thought of reasoning limited the power of women. Therefore in the end of the 19 century things were about to change and women begin to fight for more rights.
