Kathleen Evans, Robert Cortez U.S. History Mr. Bunch Period 2
Facts woman suffrage movement began in 1848, when the first women’s rights convention was held in Seneca Falls, New York In the 20th century leadership of the suffrage movement passed to two organizations witch were the NAWSA and the NWP NAWSA - National American Woman Suffrage Association NWP - National Woman’s Party Women in the reform movement also worked on many issues related to sexuality, marriage, and childbirth ( http://www.nwhm.org/)
Facts In 1869, the women's suffrage movement split over the 15th Amendment, which granted the vote to black men, but not to women. The founding of NAWSA marked an important step in the national fight for the right to vote, but most of the work was done on a local level. Formed in 1890, NAWSA was the result of a merger between two rival factions ( http://ocp.hul.harvard.edu/) ( http://memory.loc.gov)
Carrie Chapman Catt She was the very first female news reporter in San Francisco in 1887 She joined Iowa Woman Suffrage Association for whom she worked as a professional writer and lecturer Her name was Carrie Lane was born in Wisconsin in 1859 (memory.loc.gov)
Ida B. Wells She was born a slave in 1862 in Holly Springs She became one of the founding members of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and the National Association for Colored Women (NACW) (www.idabwells.org)
Alice Paul She joined the woman suffrage movement while pursuing graduate studies in England she was schooled in the militant tactics of Emmeline Pankhurst's Women's Social and Political Union She was chairman of the NAWSA Congressional Committee (worldhistoryproject.org)
Facts By 1910, the battle for women's suffrage had become a mass movement 1916, NAWSA found itself on the conservative side of the movement The opposing groups were organized in the late 1860s, partly as the result of a disagreement over strategy (ocp.hul.harvard.edu) (http://memory.loc.gov)
The 19 Amendment The amendment guarantees all American women the right to vote Some pursued a strategy of passing suffrage acts in each state--nine western states adopted woman suffrage legislation Others challenged male-only voting laws in the courts. Militant suffragists used tactics such as parades, silent vigils, and hunger strikes almost all of the major suffrage organizations were united behind the goal of a constitutional amendment (http://www.archives.gov)
