The Declaration of Independence’s wording specifies “All men are created equal.” Ever since then women have been determined to rewrite those words. Women were finally guaranteed the right to vote with the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution in 1920. Prior to the passage of this amendment women's suffrage was only guaranteed in some of the states and agitation for equal suffrage was carried on by only a few individuals (Wolgast 50). Women in America have always Dating back the early 1800’s women have broken away from the norm. Women like Emma Hart Willard who founded the Troy Female Seminary in New York which was the first endowed school for girls, helped empower women to see that there can be change.
Martin Luther King gave many speeches about racism and how people should not be judged by the colour of their skin, but on the basis of their character. Days later after he presented some of his speeches, his relatives’ houses were lit on fire and were completely destroyed by rebellions. His relatives begged him to stop but he did not listen but continued and kept persevering. Since Louis Riel had given the Provisional Government permission to arrest and kill Thomas Scott, he was labelled as a criminal and was issued a warrant
He goes to Montag’s house to check up on him. Noticing that Montag seems uneasy, the captain explains how books became illegal and why firemen do what they do. He explains that books only cause conflict across the human race and that they have no purpose. New concepts like television and sports have been created as a non-degrading new form of entertainment, revealing that this society takes place in the future. Books are seen as evil in this society so the new job of firemen was to burn these banned books to promote world peace.

The Flappers of the Twenties There has not been an era in American history that has seen such a drastic and dramatic change in the style and status of women than in the 1920s. In this era, also known as the Roaring Twenties or the Era of Wonderful Nonsense, a new woman was born just out of the blue. A woman that smoked, drank, danced, and voted. Such a woman that went to petting parties, wore make-up, and cut her hair short. This woman was euphoric and precarious.
