The Women's Rights Movement
The women's rights movement, also called the feminist movement, is a long period of activism on behalf of the interests and rights of women. The movement has been a lot more important in the past two centuries when women around the world first began to come together to express their needs and desires for social changes to reach their goals. Feminists also campaigned for the rights of women. They've viewed those changes to secure rights for others and also victories for themselves. For example, the success of women in leadership roles in the abolition movement prepared women and men to see women as thinkers, leaders, and writers who deserve respect. The Women's Rights Movement and Women Suffrage Movement both tried to gain more rights for women through verbal and written communication. The movement lasted at least 70 years starting with the first women's convention in 1848 and ending with the passage of the 19th amendment.
