Women's Suffrage

By: Cynthia Arce

Women's rights in the US

The issue of women's rights has been around for many years especially during early America. In the 18th century, women started to fight for their right to vote by gathering women in conventions and discussing their right to vote. By gathering up enough people, women, slowly but surely, got their right to vote with the 19th amendment. Starting with the federal government, moving on to the state government, and lastly moving on to the local governments.


Is Federalism helping or hindering?

Federalism helps more than hinders the growth of women's suffrage. The nation has helped women come together for many conventions to aid the awareness of women's rights. When the federal government gets involved then the many state governments start to change and then come along the local governments.
