Women in Movement

Harriet Beecher Stowe:Harriet Beecher Stowe is a social activist and the author of Uncle Tom's Cabin. She wrote the book after Congress had passed the Fugitive Slave Law in 1850. Stowe decided to express her feelings through a literary respresentation of slavery and by basing her work off of Josiah Henson and her own personal observaitons. Stowe felt that slavery was a religious and emotional issue that women were best equipped to confront. After the Civial War began, Stowe traveled to Washington D.C. where she met Abraham Lincoln. He said to her, " So, you are the little woman who started this great war." She clamed that her purpose for writing the book was " to awaken sympathy and feeling for the African race" The book's main effect was that it worsened the already existing oppositions.

Women in the MovementWednesday, December 21, 1863

Being a woman should not be the same as being a slave. We are not property to any man or family, we are not your arm candy. I know we can cook better than any man, but if you give us woman a chance to voice our opinions and be heard, we can probably make better decisions politacally and benefit society more than some of these men in charge. Why should half of the population be restrcited from making a positive inpact? Woman could not only help men but more importantly other woman and children, and with the right amount of effort eventually help the state, and possibly the country. Tell me, why should woman be cut off when if you stop treating us like less we could show you we are obviously more.

As a woman, I can understand oppression. We are not accepted into work most of the time, so we focus on friends, weather, children, gardening, and religion. Lots of women write for newspapers, and we often get articles by men, asking for us to edit and write their work. To fight for out freedom we have to sometimes disguise ourselves as men. Give woman rights, the best way to achieve this is to give white women rights first.

Harriet Tubman:Tubman is an American bondwoman who escaped from slavery in the south to become a leading abolitionist before the American Civil War. Born in Maryland in 1820 and escaped in 1849. She led hundreds to freedom in the Underground Railroad.

Women's Loyal National League:Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B Anthony lead the League on May fourteenth of this year in New York, New York. The main purpose of this was to create and amendment to get rid of slavery. We hope that by this time next year we will have already had a second meeting to continue the process of having our amendment approved. There are around 5,000 members and we received 400,000 signatures on our document. This amount of signatures is the most our nation has ever seen.
