Alice Paul: Women Suffrage

      First women were house wives. They had little rights. They worked long hours until they organized protests to get attention. Some women were beaten for protesting for their rights and some were even arrested and had to go to jail. Secondly women were threatened by men to keep them under control and so they would be quiet about their rights. In 1920 women finally got to vote because the 19th amendment was passed. Most importantly, this amendment allowed women not only to vote but to express themselves in ways that have lead up to other rights as well. We need to remember this was a fierce fight between men and women that really hasn’t stopped even today.

       First of all, the women in the United States have been voting for around 92 years. Secondly, we just go to the polls and vote without thinking about the fights, the arrests and struggles of women in our past. Now, women are more than house wives, they are a part of everything in this country. Fourthly we don’t realize there are people in the world, like the women in Saudi Arabia. They just recently this year were given the right to vote. Finally, the problem is the same for them as it was for us here in the U.S.. Women in Saudi Arabia have the right to vote but they have to ask their husbands to leave the house to register and go to the polls to vote. If the men say no, then it is very difficult for these women to exercise their right.
