2. The new women’s movement originated from the abolitionist movement. The women decided to form their own movement because of the oppression treatment that they received from men in the abolitionist movement. They felt that men were not in the forefront in championing for their own rights and this influenced in a way for them to forge for their own movement that could champion for these rights. These women realized that by supporting the abolitionist movement they would make the administration address their rights. The women of this era played a role in the abolitionist movement in the following way. As a result of the Europeans gaining power and colonizing several countries in Africa, they relied on forced labor from the Africans in both the industries and the farms. Men were the ones who worked mostly in these industries and farms. Women, on the other hand, were left behind at home to take care of domestic affairs. The domestic affairs included activities such as; taking care of the children back at home and encouraging religious study. As a result of the oppression that Africans were subjected to an abolitionist movement was formed. This movement was an anti-slave movement which formed its basis in the blacks’ resistance to slavery and the oppressing economic conditions that they were subjected to. Society perceived the role of women in society as not to actively involve themselves in matters of society. It expected them to be submissive and take part in domesticity. However, in the 1820s their involvement with the social affairs increased. The society accepted this involvement as an extension to their domestic roles. They later pushed further in the 1830s by joining and actively participating in the roles that advocated for both moral and radical changes in society. More and more women joined the anti-slave movement even though society judged them as controversial. Even though they were not being supported they continued with their support for the anti-slave trade.

    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.
