The women’s suffrage movement involved women white and black even men were involved in women’s suffrage so that women could have the same equal rights that men had and be able to be equal to men. The women’s suffrage movement dates back to 1776 the year the United States was founded. Before 1776 women exercised their right to vote but after 1776 states starting rewriting their constitution so women couldn’t vote. The way the suffrage movement started was when Abigail Adams wrote a letter to her husband John Adams asking him to “remember the ladies” in the new code of laws. Her husband John Adams replied the men will fight the despotism of the petticoat and this is the first recorded event in the women’s suffrage movement in the United States.
