Katherine West History 100 Primary Analysis 1 – Woman’s Suffrage February 6, 2012 Woman Suffrage The right for women to vote leads to a more diverse democracy. Woman’s suffrage occurred in the 19 th century and went into the early 20 th century. In the photograph 1 women are protesting in front of the white house intending to make a change that allows women the right to vote and have a say in what happens in the country alongside men. Women fought long and hard for this right and in the end succeeded although there were hardships along the way. The photograph which was taken in 1917 by Harris and Ewing demonstrates the determination the women had to achieve their goal. The group of women that protested was led by Alice Paul they all wanted to make a change in the masculine dominant society. The women that were picketing outside the White House wanted to be taken seriously and the first indication of their seriousness towards this issue was the fact that the women were standing in front of the White House. This was not something that was heard of before hand, it was a shocking sight.
