19th Amendment and the 1960/70’s Feminist

zzzzzzzThe 19th Amendment prohibits any United States citizen denied the right to vote based on sex. Woman fought long and hard to achieve suffrage.
“I declare to you that woman must not depend upon the protection of man, but must be taught to protect herself, and there I take my stand.”-Susan B. Anthony

“Men, their rights, and nothing more; women, their rights, and nothing less.” -Susan B. Anthony
Susan B. Anthony was one of the main leaders who wanted to fight for suffrage, she is a strong and powerful woman and we should thank her for getting us to where we are today. The 1960’s Feminists were women who were inspired to take a stand and fight for their rights, in the 1960s women were expected to stay at home andn cook and clean, but not all women wanted to do that. In order for them to be treated as equally as men they had to fight for their rights!
