Author Virginia Smith & A Fascinating Woman! — 7 Comments

  1. I have enjoyed the articles I’ve read about the woman’s sufferage and winning the war for women to vote. I think men had ruled over the women for so many years, it was a tough battle and took strong women to get into the fight. There were even many who were jailed, but still wouldn’t give up. I look up to all who were involved in getting me the right to vote. I’d love to win your book. Maxie ( )

  2. Good comments, everyone.

    I think for centuries men had the opinion that women weren’t able to grasp the intricacies of politics and leadership. The idea has been around for a long, long time. Women like Annie LePort Diggs were determined to prove otherwise. She wasn’t the first – there were a long line of strong women throughout history who wanted to break the stereotype. I’m not an expert, but I think the difference was in sheer volume. In the past, a few women spoke out for their rights. But in the 19th century, women’s rights became a movement. Thousands of woman joined together, and that’s what made the difference.

  3. I think back then women didn’t feel they could voice their opinions like they can today. I would love to read this book!

  4. I think back then the men had all the say so and didn’t think what a woman said meant anything. would love to read.

  5. Hello! Women in the 1800’s and
    before were considered to have
    minds suited to domestic pursuits
    and not deemed intelligent enough
    to be able to even choose a leader
    and vote or to think deeply as men
    were. Of course running a home
    and raising children was easy!! Julie

  6. I think it took so long because for years women were though to as 2nd class to a man by men .I am so glad that eyes were open up to show that woman are just as smart as men .It is sad to say still not every one see women as equal to men .Thank you for the contest who love to win .Blessings ,Dana
