    - Prison writing began to go out of fashion in the 1980’s. One event triggering this reaction was the 1981 publication of the letters that Jack Henry Abbott wrote from prison to Norman Mailer. In the Belly of the Beast was an enormously popular work and documented the anger and discontent Abbott had cultivated in his years of incarceration. Within a month of his release from prison, Abbott murdered a man during a fight.

    The Revolution
    The Revolution was a suffragist paper that promoted women suffrage and talked about other issues hitting the women society. The paper dared to discuss prostitution and abortion extremely controversial topics back then. She was opposed to those roles played by women saying that they were "a product of bad conditions, rather than bad women." It not only advocated for women suffrage but also supported labor unions. Her paper supported and pressed for an 8-hour work day and equal pay for working women. She even promoted immigration. She wanted equality for women in the workplace, marriage, and society in general. The paper empowered women who were scared to stand up for themselves and actually support the movement. It provided publicity and educated women about the movement. The paper was first published in 1868.

    Today women head large companies, serve in government offices all around the world, and are in positions that women back then didn't even dream of. How different life for us today would have been if those women didn't go against the norms of society. They completed, what seemed to be, an impossible goal.

    As most of the women's rights leaders at the time she fought for women suffrage, but she also fought for women divorce rights. At the time women weren't allowed to set conditions of divorce. It was very difficult to obtain a divorce, and even if a woman succeeded the husband would usually get custody of the children. She sought to make divorce easier to obtain, and guard her rights of custody of the children. {http://z.about.com/d/womenshistory/1/G/f/M/2/sojourner_truth_cv102a.jpg} Sojourner Truth

    Government Doesn't Take the Cause Seriously
    In 1887 for the first time the US senate voted on women suffrage after Susan B. Anthony had gotten petitions from 26 states with around 10,000 signatures. It lost to a vote of 34 to 16, where 26 senators did not bother participating. The government didn't take this cause seriously. They kept telling women to be patient and that their time would come, but right now politics wasn't the place for women. They thought that women were emotionally, morally, and physically weren't capable of contributing to American politics.

    Her father was a judge and she became a feminist after hearing her father tell women that it was perfectly just that their fathers and husbands were beating them. The young age at which she became a feminist strengthened her motivation during the woman suffrage movement.
    She was not able to support women's suffrage for many years after she was married, due to her responsibilities as a mother of five.
