The Best Of Times

WCTUThe Woman's Christian Temperance Union (WCTU) was formed by the women who were worried about alcohol causing issues for families in society. It was formed in 1873, and within the first few years, the union established a network of 1,000 local units.

19th AmendmentEver since the Women's Rights Convention in 1848, women's suffrage was considered a crazy notion but in 1920, women obtained the rights that they deserved; the 19th Amendment gave women the right to vote. Many feminists fought for black rights because they wanted to help all women, including black women.

Many unions were formed during the Women's Rights Movement; for instance, The National Association of Colored Women and The National Women's Trade Union League. Anna Julia, Josephine St. Pierre Ruffin, and Mary Church Terrel played important roles in the NAWSA.

The WCTU still continues today to spread their anti-alcohol message and how it is detrimental to families in society; they are trying to decrease the availability for tobacco, alcohol, and other drugs.

Women's Rights Movement The first time women ever took a major stand for themselves was in the 1920's (The "Jazz Age"). From then on, women have continued to fight for gender equality. For the next four years, women dedicated their hard work toward several activities on the feminist itinerary.

The 15th Amendment also introduced the idea of women's suffrage; they thought that if black men could vote, women should be able to as well. In order to further help women, the National Woman Suffrage Association (NAWSA) and the National Women's Party was formed.
