Jane Padilla Padilla1 U.S.A History 101 Abstract Ed Gomez During the 1900’s the issue of women suffrage began with women fighting for their rights to vote. Men on the other hand were not allowing women to have the right to vote with anything that pertained to politics.

Until one day when a group of women decided to break the law and vote, even though they were not allowed to do so.

All the time that those women were alive, there was nothing that said that women could vote.
Arnold Trujillo Nov 14th 2012 Prof Dr. Bunting Midterm #1 This country preaches equal right for everybody and god given rights to all men, but that is not the truth, the United States has been a hypocrite in many ways. One of these hypocrisies is the suppression of the right to vote in our “democratic” system. Thomas Jefferson should have included rights for all men except any body not “white”. Lets get that pointed out all African Americans had no rights to participate in any electoral elections, and to make things worse not all whites were given the rights to vote.

Everyone in the world should have the same rights and they should all be able too live equally. Women have had their rights withheld from them for many years and that was wrong. One of the first women to really go out and try to do something about it and change the way women are looked and do something about the horrible oppression that women were put through everyday. The women's rights movement was primarily concerned with making the political, social, and economic status of women equal to that of men.
