Women Sufferage Essay

1204 words - 5 pages

The sufferage by the woman was terrible during the 1800 and the1900, the only thing that they wanted was the right to vote and to be accepted in what they called a democratis goverment. "I believe woman suffrage to be the final result of the evolution of a true demoocracy." (Fanny Ames). Although the U.S. Constitution calls for "a goverment of people," it wasn't until August 26, 1920 that the 19th amendment was ratified to give women their rights.The road to women's sufferage was long and hard, it all started in 1848 when Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucretia Mott organized the first women's right convention in Seneca Falls, NY, and launged the womans sufferage movement. In 1870 the goal was ...view middle of the document...

At this time Anthony published The Revolution, a magazine which was mainly about the Women's Sufferage Assosiation. Their saying was: "The true republic-men, their rights and nothing more; women, their rights and nothing less." In 1890 the two women organizationscame togather forming the National American Women Sufferage Assosiation (NAWSA). Stanton became its president, Anthony became its vice-president and Stone became chairman of the executive committee.In 1919, one year before the women gained the right to vote thanks to the 19th amendment, the NAWSA reorganized into the League of Women Voters.

It was easy for them to say because men were discribed as rational and emotionally stable, while women were portrayed as "high strung," tense, irritable and potentionally irrational. Men had three conclusions about womans emotional behavior.

And third, a woman's emotional instability would make her a dangerous voter. She would let her feelings rather than her intellectual concerns be her primary reason for voting. Since women abviously could not be trusted to behave rationally, they would be extramely dangerous in political setting. Other opinions that the anti-suffragists had against women and voting was that women were intellectually inferior and could not make educated decicions, women did not have the intellectual capacity of men because their brains were smaller. The other explanation to women's "smaller brain" was that women viewed life differently. For example, and anti said that, "women's mind arrives at conclutions on incomplete evidence; has a very imperfect sence of proportion; acceps the congenial as true and rejects the uncongenial as false; takes the imaginarywhich is desired for reality, and treats the undecided reality which is out of site as non-existant-building up for itself in this way...a very unreal...
