As I researched the Women’s Suffrage, I figured out that, there is more to it then what is in the information. As I though about how women were protesting for their own rights, I thought how hard it must have been to live their lives. I though about how I get to come to school everyday with my friends and live under a house with my family. These women sacrificed everything to change how they were being treated, eventually world history too. After I went through the hatred for all those who were unequal to another, I thought about how awful the consequences were for the women once they started protesting. They gave up their jobs and then got arrested and brought to jail for what they had done. During jail, they were wearing the same clothing, women started starving themselves and had to be force fed, and on top of that, they were getting beaten. These conditions honestly make me sick just thinking about them. Although, it makes me proud to be a women in today’s day of age. Not because i have all of the rights these women were protesting for, but because I can say that our gender never gave up and decided that it was not right to treat others unequal from each other. I will be forever grateful for what they have done for the women of the United States.
