In the 1800s women were not encouraged to obtain an education and were prohibited from any level of higher education. Women were seen to be good for only cooking, cleaning and providing for the family.
Women in the 1800s were not allowed to work in the same places that men were permitted to work in. There role was known to be inside of the home. After the industrial revolution women began to change this and started to work in factories. The industrial revolution played a major role in the change of women's role in the workplace. Woman gained a low wage but were thankful to even be getting paid for there labor at first. Woman having money period gave them a sense of independence. They felt that they finally had the opportunity to be responsible and make their own decisions.
Woman didn’t have the right to vote because they were known to be inferior to men and weren’t intellectually capable to make political decisions. Woman were so trained in the home they were believed to be verbally incapable to speak out in public.
Sojourner Truth also became an empowering women during the woman’s rights movement. She was know for her speeches and her leadership to help gain woman there rights. She was an activist for the women's suffrage movement. One of her most famous speeches is “aint I a women” given at the Women's Convention in Ohio on May 29, 1851.
Because of women’s contribution to society, we gained the right to vote, the right to an education and equality in the workplace, and continue to help our country grow economically, politically and socially.
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.
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.
