Decisions made to the boycott of British goods would not have been possible if the women had not created a different alternative for the imported goods.

The daughters of liberty were one of the many groups of women who fought for woman's equality and supported the soldiers during the American Revolution.
After the revolution women were allowed to join conversations that had to do with politics, they were given the right to educate themselves about the government by reading the daily paper. During American Revolution, some women fought alongside the men while other women helped injured soldiers regain their health. The actions taken by the women caused the ideas about women to change after the war, even The Revolution was accompanied by dramatic changes in the lives of women. Before the Revolution, many women were involved in campaigns to boycott British imports. During the war, many women made items for the war effort and ran farms and businesses in the absence of their husbands.
When considering the American Revolution most histories fail to recognize both sides of the fight for liberty. Men were certainly the central figures; however could they have succeeded without the periphery support of women? In her book, Women of the Republic: Intellect and Ideology in Revolutionary America, Linda K. Kerber explores the contribution of women to the war and demonstrates the rising of “Republican Motherhood” during and following the war. Through this ideology, women merged their traditional roles with their new sense of civic duty. In the beginning chapters, Kerber examines women’s engagement in the war effort, explores the emerging idea of female patriotism and states the proper loyalties of married women during the time.
Wells transformed the Negro into the Afro-American and demonstrated that her people had the capacity to not only read and write, but also craft articulate arguments against injustice. Explicitly shown in her biopic, Paul and the NWP redefined femininity and showed America that women could assert themselves and use their voices without rejecting their womanhood. Both of these formidable women stood tall in a society dominated by men and bravely attacked the hypocrisy that had characterized their country for centuries. They did not attempt to overthrow the government or destroy America. They merely sought to improve her and help sculpt her into the flawless beauty that she was destined to be.

Also Lyudmila was invited by the United States by president Franklin Roosevelt and visited the US and Canada as a spokesman. Her action is a historical figure for both army and citizens, even though what’s her contribution to the world? Her contribution to the world is being able to show men that women can fight in a war too instead of knitting sweaters or cooking in the kitchen. Lyudmila pushed women in the front line instead of being a second class nurse.

This book really inspired me to fight for what I believe in because of the pain and suffrage these women went through to just gain the right to vote. They were not scared of going to the most horrid place a human being can go to, prison, they were not scared at what men thought of them or what others said to them.
