History: How abortion rights were won in the US

History: How abortion rights were won in the US | Women's Issues History | Scoop.it
The women’s liberation movement of the 1960s and ’70s reached its peak
when women won the right to choose an abortion and the Supreme Court
legalized the procedure in the 1973 Roe v. Wade case.
Allie Moore's insight:

This article is about how the abortion rights were won in the U.S. This artcile explains how the world starting "saving women". If a women got pregnant and she didn't want a baby or wasn't exactly ready to have a child she could get an abortion. I feel like this relates to the U.S because there is a lot of controversey whether people feel it should be legal or not.

I like this topic you chose. I am also not sure wether I am against or for abortion. Like I don't know if I would get an abortion if I ever got raped. I wouldn't want to live with knowing that happened to me, but I also wouldn't want to take someones life away.. Its a hard topic discuss.

I think abortion should be illegal, and not even a right. I honestly don't care what happened or how you got pregnant. I think it's absolutely wrong to kill an innocent child, and if you really don't want your kid, then I'd say put it up for adoption so someone else can love and care for it. You don't just kill a kid. So I guess that's my opinion..

Before the Women's Suffrage Movement

Before the Women's Suffrage Movement | Women's Issues History | Scoop.it
The women's suffrage movement lasted at least 70 years, from the first formal women's convention in 1848 in Seneca Falls, New York to the passage of the 19th amendment. 
Allie Moore's insight:

I liked this article because it explains how hard women fought for what they wanted. The 19th amendment was finally passed and women could eventually vote. This artcile is very important because it explains how women stood up for themseleves and didn't give up for what they believed they desereved. This relates to the U.S today because all women can vote and more women are starting to be apart of government situations and dealing with world issues.

I like how you mentioned the 19th amendment because that was a huge thing for women in history (and today). Women have just as much of a right as men do to vote. It was a big thing in history because it has affected people (especially women) today.

I really like this article because you can really see how hard life was for women back then and how hard they fought for what they believed in. You did a great job finding this article.

I like this article because it shows how hard women fought for freedom to vote. When the 19th ammendment passed women could vote. It shows how hard the women fought for what they believed in. It relates to the U.S. because it happend in the U.S. All women can vote as long as they are citizens of the U.S.

Allie Moore's insight:

I liked this artcile because it explains how women started forming groups called the womens right's movement. More schools and education was opening up for women. Also women were starting to earn their voting rights, I think that is a very important event. This relates to the U.S because all women have the opportunity to go to college. Also, women are doing bigger and greater things like becoming college profesors and more and more women are becoming doctors.

The Women's Liberation Movement of the 1960s

The Women's Liberation Movement of the 1960s | Women's Issues History | Scoop.it
The Women�s Liberation Movement of the 1960s is a paper written by Wisconsin high school student Vintee Sawhney.
Allie Moore's insight:

The Women's Liberation Movement of the 1960s was a very important event. I liked this article because it explains how women were trapped in their houses always doing the housekeeping but the Liberation Movement changed that and women could get jobs and there wasn't any more discrimination with jobs between women and men. I also liked how women realized that media and looks wasn't all that mattered, women started realizing that they were more and they meant more than what they looked like and starting feeling better about themseleves, not being so insecure and started feeling important in this world. This relates to the U.S today because there is many groups women have created dealing with their church, book clubs, family issues.

I think that this article is interesting becuase it talks about how women were trapped in their houses. They can do more outside of the house. They can get jobs and not be discriminated. It was a major self esteem booster for women everywhere in the U.S. They could go out and do big jobs that the men would do. It was a big outbreak for the women who wanted to do mens work.

Allie Moore's insight:

This artcile is very imporant because it explains how the birth control pill was now available. This was part of the women's movement. I liked this article because it talks about how women were being able to take the birth control pill, it made women feel more stable and able to focus more on their jobs and politics. This relates to the U.S today because many women use them in the U.S. for non purpose reasons for example stopping the menstrual cycle.

I agree with you Allie! This article is interesting. I think it's good that women have a choice now whether they want to take the pill or not.

Allie Moore's insight:

I liked this article because it explains how women started earning more equal rights. They were getting paid more equally and fairly. Women started creating groups, and women would get together and discuss equal rights and they started earning them. This relates to the U.S today because more women are getting more opportunities to do the things that men can do.

I think that this article is very informative. I think that it was important that women have the same rights as men. Women are just as important as men and women play a very important role in society.

Women's Rights

Women's Rights | Women's Issues History | Scoop.it
A look back at history shows that women have made great strides in the fight for equality, including women's suffrage (the right to vote), and inroads in equal opportunity in the workplace and in education.
Allie Moore's insight:

This article explains women's rights. I like this article because I think women deserve to be equal to men. It is a great thing that they changed the issues between men and women dealing with jobs and education. This article relates to the U.S because back then women didn't have an option with what jobs they could work for, usually the women were just the cleaning and food makers of the household. Today, women are doing extraordinary things.
