The NAWSA started criticizing the NWP for their methods and for protesting a president during the war. The way they got their nickname “iron jawed angles” was because of their methods of protest where they would stand outside the white house with their protest signs and not say a word. Eventually the law was brought into it and they would be arrested and sent to a labor house where they would work off their sentence. Also they got this nickname because when they were in these work houses they refused to eat causing a huge epidemic and causing them to force feed them with tubes. I thought that it was a cool scene when Alice Paul would not eat and even when they tried to force feed her they had to basically pry her jaw open and I thought that showed much determination that I don’t think the NAWSA would have done and I believe that may have played a role in getting the 19th amendment passed.
Then came into being the famous movement called The Suffrage Movement during which the women fought for their equal voting rights which all men were enjoying at that time because they were of the view that they were a part of the society too and they deserve all the rights to elect their representatives. This movement was started in 1848 and it ended in 1920. It continued for quite a long time and women had to face many hardships to fight for their own rights. But the period still could not end up in signing of the Nineteenth Amendment in 1920. During the whole period of 1920, women had put their emphasis on promoting the status of
From the age of 16 until her death in 1906, Susan B. Anthony was a voice for women. Whether it was the right to vote or equal labor laws, Susan was the voice for women across the country.

The National Women’s Party protested in front of the white house, holding banners that spoke against Wilson. When WWI started, some felt it wasn’t right to fight during wartime. The picketers got arrested and sent to jail. They were treated horribly in jail. The ladies then started a hunger strike.
3. What was the government’s attitude to female employment at first? When war first broke out the government was reluctant to allow women to do any of the jobs left vacant by the men who had gone to fight. 4. How did some women try to force to government to employ more women?
Driven also to change other laws that affected women, she earned a Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania in 1912. She was then appointed chair of the Congressional Committee of the National American Woman Suffrage Association I 1912. It campaigned for the passage of a federal amendment and for a time functioned concurrently with the new Congressional Union for Woman Suffrage, founded by Alice Paul in April 1913. She strived for everything she believed in. Alice Paul paved the way for many women to believe that they equal to men and should have the right to speak out, vote do all the things men were able to do.
They include the work of the suffragettes’ who caused chaos and grabbed the spotlight away from the suffragists’ after a group of women decided it was time to make a militant stand. Also woman’s work war work was a massive contribution to them gaining the vote, it showed that woman could work just as well as the men could and respect was gained. Women worked on the front line as bearers for the injured soldiers, this showed tremendous bravery and strength they also worked in the medical areas helping men recover or heal from their injuries.

Society dos not want to be lied to, all they want is the true facts and actual reason behind the wars we send our soldiers into. Like in George Orwell’s, 1984, there is a war going on between Oceania and Eurasia, it is later depicted that it is between Oceania and Eastasia. Nobody in Oceania knows who they are actually fighting. This enhances the idea that the government in society today doesn’t want to give the real reason why they go to war with another country. This disconnection between the government and society shouldn’t be happening because we should know why we have to send our loved ones out to another country to fight for a “cause” that the government thinks is right.
Fighting for a cause The women’s suffrage movement, symbol of nineteenth and early twentieth century feminism, is the one most visible manifestation of women’s emancipation. From the birth of the nation to a Constitutional Amendment passed in 1920, suffrage for women had been batted aside, ignored, criticized, and denied. Those who attacked women’s suffrage were attacking much more than the idea that women as well as men should enter the polling booth. Across America women living in the 1900’s were angry and tired of feeling betrayed and treated as an unequal second class citizen. However these brave remarkable women decided to take action that helped forever changed American history, the right to vote.
