reason for selecting topic
Reason for selecting topic
  • I selected this topic because as a African American Women in America I think it is important to know the struggle it took to get me were I am today. This can humble me as a person to exercise my rights to my full advantage.
what did i learn
What did I learn?
  • Throughout my research I came to realize that the women's suffrage movement is a movement that is not recognized enough. In history this is a subject that many people just skip over and don’t really understand the brutal treatment women had to endure. Not only did we have to overcome slavery but then we had the fight again men as well. Women have came along way in history to become independent and have a sense of individuality and I think that has had a impact on our generation today.
