rights, and by the mid-1800’s, as a result of industrialization and new economic opportunities, women became more and more influential in male-dominated career fields such as teaching and nursing. However, the right to own property would only be given in the late 1800’s to early 1900’s. By the 1840’s and 1850’s, the Women’s Rights Movement moved towards equal political rights, which would spawn the Suffragette Movement, an international movement throughout western democracies for the right to vote. Although their voices were heard, little action was taken to give women the right to vote, until the upheaval of WW1. 39. Change in the Americas 39a.

Jason Qu, Maha Khan, George Stefanakis, Jenny Chen, Marc Zitelli After 1870, as Europe industrialized, Latin America began to experience economic growth through the exporting of basic raw materials, such as coffee, or rubber. This resulted in the emergence of old economic patterns as they remained de facto economic colonies of their former colonial masters. Rural elites still dominated Latin America, as an extremely poor majority remained even as slavery was abolished. The middle class that emerged was very small, but as the working class expanded, so did the presence of unions, especially after 1914. Landholding elites played an extraordinarily large role in national politics and often manipulated politics and national governments for their economic benefit, which was particularly common in Mexico, which resulted in a revolution that overthrew in 1910, of the regime of Porfirio Diaz who had ruled Mexico with an iron fist, backed by foreign industrialists, the army, large landowners, and the Catholic Church. Under his reign, 95% of peasants owned no land while a thousand individuals owned almost all of Mexico. Agrarian reform, solitary with the working class, and a return to a constitutionalist form of government all defined the Mexican Revolution and ensuing civil war, and in 1917, a new constitution was created which initiated land reform and set a plan for new social welfare. 39b. The Rise of the United States Between the end of the Civil War and WW2, the United States industrialized greatly, which lead to intense urbanization and the inception of the American industrial power, as it became the world’s richest industrialized nation in 1900. However, issues regarding urban living conditions remained in American society which resulted in what is known as the Progressive Era, under Wilson, which began to extend the functions of the state to provide some level of social welfare for its people. This rise to power allowed the United States to become an economic and military world power, and by the end of the 1800’s, the Americans had invaded American Samoa, and seized the Hawaiian Islands in a coup of Queen Liliuokalani, which would then be annexed in 1898.
