Causes of the movement:
The “cult of domesticity” from Jacksonian Democracy was challenged during the temperance movement by Amelia Bloomer. She wrote “The Lily”, her temperance newspaper. By writing this newspaper, Bloomer shows the dangers of men drinking and how it threatens the woman and children in their family. Since women couldn’t vote because of this “cult of domesticity”, Bloomer is showing her expression in government through writing, which also goes back to the idea of the “Rise of the Common Man”. Amelia Bloomer gained more women supporters as more women read her newspaper.
