I'm a young women living in the United States. Even though I'm not a slave I'm treated just like one. I'm not allowed to vote just like slaves and Indians. I don't go to work. My siblings and I help my mother with the housework. I'm not married and that mean little to no freedom. My parents keep telling me to get married, but why would I . If i do get married my husband will have the right to take my all my wages, and if i inherit from a relative or my parents it will become my husband's property. He can apprentice my children without my consent, and if i get divorced my husband will receive custody of my children.

I don't think it's fair for women not to vote and not to be treated like men for any reason. We are all human and we all deserve to be treated equally. That's why i decided to devote my life for women's right. I started by opening the AERA , which is the American Equal Rights Association. This association is to seek suffrage for all citizens regardless of race or gender. For a change, not only African American women are accepted into membership, but they are also elected to key positions in the organization. In 1872, I demanded that women be given the same civil and political rights that had been extended to black males under the 14th and 15th amendments.

Now I can finally say that America is ready to be called the Country of Freedom. An Amendment has been proposed and passed. The amendment stated that the right of the citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied by the United States or any other state on account of sex. I published a news paper called "The Revolution", and a book called "The History Of Women Suffrage". I may have failed to get married and have kids but I did what's more important. I gave women the right to be treated equally. Now I'm not known as being one of the first women who went to jail. I'm known for being the woman who gave women their right to vote and be treated equally as any one else.
