Women in the 1800 speak again!

Interview with Elison Parker

I interview Elison Parker about women's rights and the changes between now and 1800's.


"Are you single or married?"

"I am single"

"How do you feel when you walk down the street?

"I can feel all eyes on me, and not in a good way. I can also hear people talking behind my back, I am 18, I feel to pressured."

"What do you wear most of the days?"

"I wear a dress and skirts most of the days. I wish I could wear pants."

"Have you ever been in court?"

"To be honest, yes I have been in court"

"Why?"

"I spoke about women's rights in public"

"What do you do for a living?"

"I am a maid"

"Last question, do you feel any difference between today and now?"

"There are little changes, but nothing big like being able to vote"
