Jeffrey, your article is perfect! Although I believe that the success of feminist and suffrage movements was largely due to the financial support they received, I don’t think their wealth is the only factor. Affluent women certainly used their money to support these causes, but I think there were other factors, such as the dedication, courage and enthusiasm of women who participated in these movements.
The thesis statement should be focused on the purpose of the paper. It is clear that the amendment has not been overwhelmingly supported by Americans. This could be explained as the vast majority sees it as an “less important” amendment. Detractors claim that the amendment does not address critical issues and doesn’t propose significant Constitutional changes. The amendment’s approval would have been better served if it focused on amends that protect civil rights and strengthen democracy. Thank you for your thoughtful post.
Howdy, Jean! Your choice of materials is a great thing. It looks fascinating from the first glance. It was amazing to me that such a lot of work had gone into raising funds for the fight for suffrage. These women struggled for financial aid to support the suffrage cause. The selling of postcards during the early 1900s was an effective way to raise money and spread information. These ladies were responsible for creating the cards, finding a market and managing the money. You might see them plan fundraising events such as galas and benefit concerts. Although the campaign for women’s suffrage was successful in granting them the right to vote it proved difficult for many female participants. It is difficult to make a point there. In your next debate, I expect you to embrace one view. Jean, thanks for the informative article.
