Women's Suffrage Movement

It all began in 1848, when 200 women and 40 men got together in the Seneca Falls convention to make claim for women’s full citizenship. They claimed “We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men and women are created equal.” This marked the start of the Women's Suffrage Movement. After the first convention, women became more involved in society and public life. In 1869, two significant groups were formed, the National Women Suffrage Association by Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony, and the American Women Suffrage Association by Lucy Stone and Henry Blackwell. The two groups came together in 1890 stating that since women were inherently different from men, women would restore moral order and harmony if they were allowed to vote. By the 1910’s the women’s suffrage movement had become a very powerful movement. After years of fighting, results were seen. In 1919 the Federal Women Suffrage amendment is introduced to Congress and passed by the House of Representatives and the Senate. Finally on August 26,1920, the 19th Amendment is ratified, granting women the right to vote.

Women's Suffrage

"I declare to you that woman must not depend upon the protection of man, but must be taught to protect herself, and there I take my stand."

Elizabeth Cady Stanton

"The prolonged slavery of women is the darkest page in human history."

"The women of this country ought be enlightened in regard to the laws under which they live, that they may no longer publish their degradation by declaring themselves satisfied with their present position, nor their ignorance, by asserting that they have all the rights they want."- Elizabeth Cady Staton
