This
week you read about the women’s suffrage movement and the Equal Rights
Amendment (ERA), two major efforts to establish equal rights for women
in the United States. In your discussion post, address the following:

  • Choose a sentence or short section from the article embedded in your
    webtext reading about the women’s suffrage movement. Quote the sentence
    or section in your post. Along with this sentence or section, briefly
    explain how your choice illustrates the concept of historical causality.
  • In one or two sentences, summarize the author’s thesis statement
    about the ERA. To support your answer, quote one or two sentences from
    the article that convey the author’s central point.

Respond to your peers by comparing one of their selections to your
own. Reflect on the similarities and differences between the conclusions
you each made based on the evidence you selected.

Please note that citations are not required when citing from the MindEdge resource.

    webtext reading about the women’s suffrage movement. Quote the sentence
    or section in your post. Along with this sentence or section, briefly
    explain how your choice illustrates the concept of historical causality.

“Congress subsequently approved the Nineteenth Amendment—which
guaranteed women the right to vote at both the state and federal
levels—in 1919. A year later, on August 18, 1920, Tennessee became the
36th state to ratify the amendment, finally enshrining women’s right to
vote in the Constitution of the United States.”

I believe this absolutely illustrates the concept of historical
casualty. Because congress approved the nineteenth amendment the a large
possibly that it contributed to the women’s right to vote in the
constitution.

  • In one or two sentences, summarize the author’s thesis statement
    about the ERA. To support your answer, quote one or two sentences from
    the article that convey the author’s central point.

To me the authors point regarding ERA, is the amount of power and
money it takes to start a movement. Compared to the previous section
where it was more about awareness than power and money. Very similar to
the way politics are run now.

“Because these laws assumed that women were “different” from men—in
the sense of being “weaker” or more in need of special protection—they
were vehemently opposed by the National Women’s Party”

“Burned
by her experience with Phillips, Anthony wanted wealthy women to
prioritize giving to the movement. Suffragists understood that they
could not depend on men; it would take the financial support of women to
make change for women. It was only after Anthony’s death in 1906,
however, that they began to contribute enough money to turn the tide
toward victory.”
The leaders of the movement understood they could
not rely on men to support their cause for the right to vote. They knew
they had to find upper class women to financially support their cause,
because without their support they would not have been able to pay
speakers or for their travel throughout the country to unite women
nationwide.

There are two sides of the Equal Rights Amendment, some agreed,
and some did not. The politics were different depending on which party
you were talking to.

“Supporters of the amendment, led by Paul’s National Women’s Party,
argued that women should be legally equal with men in all respects.
Opponents argued that strict equality would require the repeal of
protective labor legislation designed to benefit women workers by, for
example, requiring them to work shorter hours or exempting them from
night work.”
