In my opinion the womens movement was the most important reform of the progressive period If I had lived during this period I dont know how I would have survived being treated the way these women did Men were the only ones who could go out get jobs or participate in their community Women were expected to sit home taking care of the children cooking and cleaning They were not respected or treated as human beings This treatment of women was promoted by Victorianism I would have worked to overcome these beliefs The idea of separate spheres was completely ridiculous The male sphere of politics and work could equally be experienced by women as men could have taken care of the house and children These spheres were many years old from the reign of Queen Victoria in England and had to be modified It was time for a change Since women finally began taking clerical or industrial jobs in the early 20th century the next important issue would be womans suffrage Women deserve to have a right to vote To help I would have attended the Seneca Falls Convention in 1848 and helped Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B Anthony in the National American Woman Suffrage Association with rallies and conventions Rallies and conventions were some of the only ways women could express their views and feelings since they did not attend many other formal community meetings It was important to let the country know that women had the ability to make decisions to improve America In the past women had tried to prove they were equal to men but new suffragists reasoned that the genders were different Years of experience as mothers and household managers had given women an understanding of how to improve the countrys education sanitation workers rights and family nourishing These situations gave women a knowledge that no man could posses Although it took one hundred forty four years
