We discussed an extremely important subject in Baby Feminism today- women’s suffrage. The word “suffrage” means the right to vote and run for office. We watched scenes from “Iron Jawed Angels,” a great movie about the women’s suffrage movement and some of its leaders, Lucy Burns and Alice Paul. Did you know women couldn’t vote until 1920? This change was brought about by a group of strong, determined women protesting for their rights, and maintaining a stance of nonviolence despite being mistreated and abused by their opponents. This movie made us realize that, even though it may seem like a hassle, voting is extremely important and a right that we fought hard to win.
