“We may yet live to see that day when women will no longer be news. And it cannot come too soon. I want to be a peaceful, happy, normal human being, pursuing my unimpeded way through life, never having to explain, defend, or apologize for my sex” (Nellie McClung, 1929). Throughout most of history, men have had greater rights than women. In present days, the equality between men and women have improved, despite the fact that some countries are still striving to establish those same rights for both genders. What impact did Nellie McClung make on Canadian society? She is a perfect example of a Canadian social activist who advocated for the rights of women throughout the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. In this essay, I will examine the depictions of the fight for suffrage and the stand for electoral office, in addition to the contribution of the Famous 5 and the type of feminism she represented in order to demonstrate the impact and influence she had as a Canadian woman.

t the dawning of the 1820s, a new era began to emerge in America--the rise of the democratic government. President Andrew Jackson notoriously became a symbol for democracy and dedicated his presidency to contributing to the rise of the democratic era. His reputation as a common Southerner and esteemed general was a relief from his well-educated, elite, president predecessors. Jackson was obligated to preserve the rights of the common-man and fought to eradicate threats imposed upon democracy, thus inadvertently creating dedicated supporters and protesters who formed respective political parties. Andrew Jackson was more than a soldier and war hero, he became a true representative of the American people, and his staunch support in democracy succeeded in revolutionizing the American government.
Death, something saddening to many nutrol for others, but what about if it 's the death of an era not a person. The question is, who was responsible for the ending of Reconstruction (To rebuild/fixing after war): Northern Neglect or Southern Resistance? Though there is no question. The North’s neglecting to the south was a primary reason for the ending of reconstruction because during that era a large percentile of the North made up the Ku Klux Klan (KKK), which that specific group was largely opposed to the reconstruction of the South as well as they were supremacist; which means, “an advocate of the supremacy of a particular group, especially one determined by race or sex. or relating to or advocating supremacy of a particular group.” The KKK were so opposed to slavery, and the reconstruction that they went as far as to kill many southern congressmen just because they were pro-reconstruction (Doc. B). The other reason that the north was primarily responsible for the ending of reconstruction was the fact that the north got to the point where they started neglecting the south and putting the reconstruction as their last priority (Doc. D). The north did this from getting tired of fixing south’s problems (Doc. C), along with many other reasons. The north could have helped the reconstruction with so much, but they gave up, they gave up on part of their country. They quit something that could have changed history. Though if they didn’t quit how would the world be today.

Fee was born in 1816 to farm and slave owners of Bracken County, Kentucky (Fee, John). Fee’s father owned up to 13 slaves at one point in order to keep a steady running farm and argued that no sin had been committed (Fee). Raised in this lifestyle, Fee saw slaves as a normal part of life however gotten into trouble for playing and standing up for his fellow slaves (Fee). Seeing no indifference between colors at a young age, Fee later grew to realize the sins of slavery as he gave himself to god during adolescence. First joining a Presbyterian Church with his father, Fee matured with his faith to study Gospel Ministry (Fee). Through his studies, he met two classmates that challenged his understandings of slavery with the holy text. Coming to an understanding, Fee realized to keep his soul he must become an “abolitionist” and fight for his love of God and mankind (Fee). Fee returned home after his studies to convert mislead followers from his native state, beginning with his father. With this ineffective pursuit he also found a love pursuit and his future wife, Matilda Hamilton, whom supported him through his trials. Fee continued to spread his teachings to neighboring churches, and established a strong community for black families in Camp Nelson (“Walk of Fame Recipient Plaque 5”). In a pursuit to create equality and save man from sin, Fee touched many hearts and ultimately created the first co-racial college in the South (“Walk of Fame Recipient Plaque

A typical day in 6 year old Harriet Tubman’s life would be the sound of galloping horses at night. The sound came from the patrollers who were on the horses that made sure that none of the slaves were escaping. Back then, some slaves tried to escape and be free, but they would often not make it to freedom because the patrollers had caught them. At night, Harriet and her mother, Old Rit, would hear the furious galloping of horses outside and hoped that it didn’t stop because if it did stop, that would mean the patrollers, the people on the horses, caught the slave trying to escape and do three bad things to them. According to paragraph 6 of Harriet Tubman: Conductor on the Underground Railro ad “Old Rit would say a prayer that the hoofbeats
While Frederick Douglass was enslaved by Mr. Freeland. He welcomed many slaves to come and learn what he had struggled so much to gain. “Teaching these my fellow slaves” was one of the greatest blessings Frederick could have given to the other slaves. “Instructing my dear fellow slaves was the sweetest engagement with which I was ever blessed. We loved each other.” Not only did he not have to teach them, but he did it with so much love. He also received love back from the grateful slaves in whom he was teaching. In the article “Bound to Be Friends.” It talks about how a slave
