Slavery & Abolition—Women & Reform
Session 5: Expansion & The Age of Jackson
Sections 8.2 & 8.3
Slavery became an explosive issue, as Southerners increasingly defended it, while Northerners increasingly attacked it.
In addition, the abolition movement gained momentum in attempting to end slavery.
At the same time the abolitionist and temperance movements grew, another reform movement to give equal rights to women took root.
This became known as the women’s suffrage (right to vote) movement.
