At a parade they had before the inauguration of President Wilson, women were marching in protest, but then there was a riot and police officers did not want to help because they said that “it wouldn’t have happened if they were not protesting”. 3 This meant that although women were trying to get support from others, they were not being able to do so since they were blamed that whatever happened to them was because they were looking for it themselves. That did not stop women from pursuing their goal. Knowing that women were willing to do anything that they could, started to make people feel and know that they were slowly getting what they wanted. There were even men who started to join the cause which started representing that if those men were able to accept that women should have the right to vote, then they could really persuade congress to pass an amendment granting them such right. This illustrates how men were slowly beginning to realize that women too, should have the same rights just as men. Women “stopped at nothing to accomplish their purpose, and refused all compromise.” 4 Women had a one and only aim which was to get an amendment passed that would grant them right to vote, just like African Americans were able to vote because of the 15 th amendment.

    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.
