Woman have always been treated as second class citizen, along with African Americans, and most minorities ever since the United States was Founded. The passing of the  19th Amendment was a huge step in the fight for equal rights

Suffragettes in 1920 "No Self Respecting Woman Should Wish Or Work For The Success Of A Party That Ignores Her Sex" -Susan B. Anthony 1872 and 1894

The 19th Amendment states,"The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation."

I think every woman who is against feminism shouldn't vote. Because it is thanks to feminism women can vote today. At the time the photo was taken, feminists were called suffragettes.

When The United States was founded, women when denied some of the key rights that Male Citizens were entitled to, such as married woman couldn't own property and couldn't have their own money and it wasn't until Wyoming joined the union that women had the right to vote anywhere in the U.S.(not to mention that The United States has never had a female president in the history of our country...)
