Reason for their equality was bc of their reproductive functions would lead to society becoming a gentler place d) 4 argueing points (1) Women needed to vote in order to pass laws against rapists, labor safety laws, and age minimums for sex (2) The women’s vote would speed up reform, prohibition, factory reform (3) Protestant women would counteract the ignorant immigrant vote, catholic women were less likely to vote and thus it would increase the protestant vote in the country. ii) The new woman-men ran the danger of being emaculated and ran the risk of being chased out of government leadership. It lead to advertising saying that women needed to stay in the home. The advertising companies reinforced the 2 steriotypes of women bt running around with make up and a women being weak and meek. iii) Dangers of women’s rights was the increase in divorce rate, which had tripled, by 1900 only 1/12 of marriages ended in divorce iv) 1896 McKinley- republican party argued for universal suffrage. Since the republicans were the clear majority they didn’t need to satisfy the profeminist vote anymore. Also they had gotten many catholic votes, thus they said it should be decided state by state. the same had happened with the black vote.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
