The Women's Rights Movement
From the Series Movements That Matter (Alternator Books ® )
Women have come a long way since the first women’s rights convention took place in Seneca Falls, New York, in 1848—but women’s rights activists are still working to expand rights today. What are the main concerns of women’s rights activists today? And what challenges have women faced in the 1800s, 1900s, and 2000s in their fight for equality? Find out how Susan B. Anthony, Betty Friedan, and other groundbreaking activists paved the way for the women’s rights movement today. And learn how activists are working with groups that speak out for the rights of racial minorities and members of the LGBTQ+ community to expand rights for all.
