Shvedova N. A. Strokes to a portrait of women’s movement in the USA, p.72-87

2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which was passed by the country’s highest legislative body on June 4, 1919, and ratified on August 18, 1920. It gave American women the right to vote at the federal level, by law guaranteeing them this right. American society and state have had a long way to reach this milestone: behind a difficult struggle that required decades of agitation and protest. The credit for the victory undoubtedly belongs primarily to American women, several generations of whom, beginning in the 1800s, have nominated women supporters of the right to vote from among their ranks. In 1848 “The Movement for Women’s Rights” began to organize itself at the national level. Currently American women are facing a global pandemic, the loss of mil-lions of jobs, destruction a decade of growth in women’s employment in the workforce. The developed women’s movement in the United States, which has historical roots and has accumulated and absorbed the best traditions of its predecessor, influences the formation of social reality and its changes in the context of gender equality in the country. read in PDF>>>
