Women had few rights and were controlled by their husbands. Changing attitudes towards women in British society was an important factor in winning women the vote in 1918 however other factors were also involved. The peaceful actions of the suffragists and the violence of the suffragettes helped win support and publicity for women suffrage. The role of women at home in Britain during WW1and international pressure of introducing women’s suffrage also led to women receiving the vote by 1918.

As we might say today, women’s ‘public image’ changed and improved,” says Constance Rover, a historian. Part of the reason why the war was key to women gaining the vote in 1918, was because of changing opinions towards women. “Surely a land fit for heroes to live in might include a place for a few heroines as well?” says Constance Rover.

Running head: Women’s Struggle for Equality HIS204 December 09, 2013 Women’s Struggle for Equality Suffrage for women was a cause that began over seventy years before the nation saw fit to give women the right to vote, and it's one of those complicated stories you get in history that make the process even more interesting and dramatic. Doesn't seem like that would be so difficult, does it? The origins of Women's Suffrage in the United States are entwined with the anti-slavery movement. Scholars believe that anti-slavery activity was acceptable political activity for women who weren't allowed to take part in traditional politics, and that created a situation in which some women began to wonder why there couldn't be more.
An Under famed Rhetorician Rhetoric has been through many stages, from early Greek origins to modern day theory. It has shaped societies and has transformed civilizations round the globe. Due process states that we must accredit those who have contributed to rhetoric along the way. An area of rhetoric I feel that has not been explored enough is the contribution that women have added throughout time; particularly the renaissance period.

The Early Fight on Booze Drinking in the 1920’s was influenced mostly by prohibition; the government put forth prohibition in order to make more productive workers. Henry Ford announced, "The country couldn't run without Prohibition. That is the industrial fact.” Temperance movements would portray alcohol as to causing poverty, crime, corruption, social problems, and tax burdens. John D. Rockefeller alone donated close to $350,000 to the Anti-Saloon League. Both of these business leaders believed that alcohol decreased the efficiency of their workers, and if alcohol were banned it would be better for their business.
