Back in the mid 1800’s the first women’s convention was initiated by Elizabeth Stanton, along with others who founded the Women’s Suffrage Movement. After attending an World Anti-Slavery Society meeting, where the women were required to sit is a separate area away from the men, the women decided that they were little better than slaves and decided to do something about it.

After the Civil War, the movement of women’s suffrage had a new inspiration, as they used African American suffrage as a stepping stone towards women’s suffrage. Organizations, such as the National Association Women’s Suffrage Association and Women’s Christian Temperance, had clear goals to reform the urban areas with women’s suffrage.

Though many were in favor of this way of thinking, some suffragists had different ideas on how to go about ratifying their ideology within the United States. One of the main methods they used to secure the right to vote for American women was trying to acquire a constitutional amendment to grant women the right to vote. This was the more grueling approach of the two, for it would require two-thirds of each house of congress to approve of the amendment, as well as be ratified by three-fourths of the country’s state legislatures. Two suffragists named Elizabeth Cady Stanton
When slavery was abolished, people finally managed to realize one simple thing- its just a pigment in our skin that makes us different. But why couldn 't they realize another thing- its just our sex organs that make us different? Until the fairly recent 1920, women and men were held so different they were not even allowed to cast their ballots for the president of the United States. It drove some women, such as Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B Anthony to start extremely important conventions that even led to a movement. Their supporters were often arrested just for just speaking out for equality. Women finally gained suffrage in the United States due to the National Women’s Rights Convention, American Equal Rights Association, and hard headed women who took a stand for their right to vote.
The struggle for women’s suffrage started in the early 1800’s. Elizabeth Cody Stanton and Susan B Anthony decided to renew their fight in the 1860’s.

They also started to take important jobs and careers over men such like teaching and nursing.
California women and men worked tirelessly to strengthen the women’s suffrage campaign from 1893, when the state legislature passed an amendment permitting women to vote in state elections, through the final passage of the amendment in 1911. The strength of the movements themselves, passionate support overcoming harsh opposition, pushed by the people and the organizations championing for the women’s vote were the main contributing factors which accumulated in the eventual passage of Amendment 8. Since California women have begun to vote, there have been many advancements and setbacks in the other women’s rights movements, including the Nineteenth Amendment and the Equal Rights Amendment.
