Discrimination Against Women

Even before the Seneca Falls convention in 1848 women had been fighting for the rights to vote and more. Women had been fighting for the right to vote for years but their attempts were not very successful. But by 1910 women had federal voting rights only in Wyoming, Utah, Colorado, Washington, and Idaho. Their years of fighting for rights had finally started to pay off. Women activists had developed new strategies for gaining supporters: they increased activism of local, groups, the use of bold new strategies to build enthusiasm for the movement, and the rebirth of the national movement under Carrie Chapman Catt.

Carrie Chapman Catt was part of NAWSA , and helped organize New York's Women Suffrage Party.
