Essay: The Feminist Movement
The Feminist Movement was rekindled on 1912 by Alice Paul, a Suffragette who organized meeting in a number of US States cities. She, Alice defected from National American Woman Suffrage Association that was led by Carrie C. Catt and supported the democratic presidential candidate to form the National Woman’s Party, a more militant and vibrant party.
The suffragists of the National Woman’s Party were arrested as political prisoners during attending the Silent Sentinel protest at the white house. Though they were tortured in the prison, they were later released as President Wilson addressed the congress demand for consideration of those women demands. Their demands were ratified on 1920, August 26 by the 36-ratification state (Joiner 2005).
