In which John Green teaches you about American women in the Progressive Era and, well, the progress they made. So the big deal is, of course, the right to vote women gained when the 19th amendment was passed and ratified. But women made a lot of other gains in the 30 years between 1890 and 1920. More women joined the workforce, they acquired lots of other legal rights related to property, and they also became key consumers in the industrial economy. Women also continued to play a vital role in reform movements. Sadly, they got...

In which John Green finally gets around to talking about some women's history. In the 19th Century, the United States was changing rapidly, as we noted in the recent Market Revolution and Reform Movements episodes. Things were also in a state of flux for women. The reform movements, which were in large part driven by women, gave these self-same women the idea that they could work on their own behalf, and radically improve the state of their own lives. So, while these women were working on prison reform, education reform, and abolition, they also started talking about equal rights, universal suffrage, temperance, and fair pay. Women like Susan B. Anthony, Carry Nation, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, the Grimkés, and Lucretia Mott strove tirelessly to improve the lot of American women, and it worke...
Women in Islam are thought to be subjugated, degraded, oppressed – but are they really? Are millions of Muslims simply that oppressive or are these misconceptions fabricated by a biased media?

Throughout history, women all over the world have faced, and largely taken: oppression, abuse, violence, and gender-based discrimination. Many may believe that because women in the United States can vote, and have been granted many of the same rights as men, rights are no longer an issue. Yet within modern western civilization, there are still prevalent issues that women are faced with daily. Women of the world suffer. They have become a commodity, and a symbol of weakness. Women do not recieve equal treatment to men, even within modern western society. This needs to stop.

The year 2008 marked the 90th anniversary of women obtaining the right to vote in Canada. Learn how the franchise for women was achieved in this Telling Times documentary. After Confederation in 1867, all women were excluded from voting: it was the law. In 1916, Manitoba was the first province to give women the vote. On May 24, 1918, the majority of Canadian women were given the right to vote. Immigrants of Asian origin and their descendants, certain religious groups, as well as Inuit and Aboriginal peoples were excluded. It wasn't until 1960 that all women over the age of 18 were given the vote.
