The beginning of the fight for women's suffrage in the United States, which predates Jeannette Rankins entry into congress by nearly 70 years, grew out of larger women's rights movement. That reform effect evolved during the 19th century, initially emphasizing a broad spectrum of goals before focusing solely on securing the franchise for women. Woman right are the rights and entitlement claimed for woman and girls worldwide, and formed the basis for them. Women had few political or legal rights they could not vote (suffrage) or hold office any wages they earned belonged to their husband .

Fair student funding will send funds to schools for new data ,and doesn't make schools have a limit of education. Gives schools better opportunities to make choices for their students. Fair student funding provides every school with the resources needed to educate its specific student population, and thus a principal has everything that he or she needs to meet specific, quantifiable outcomes. While public schools were springing up across the country, not every child had the opportunity to public education. Few girls were able to go to high school or college.
The Prison Reform movement in the late 1800s and early 1900s tried to help prisoners by giving them better living conditions, like better cells, more time outdoors, better food, and training. Before then, prisoners were beaten, kept in overcrowded cells, and given long sentences for minor crimes. They were just punished and left to rot in their cells. A Boston school teacher by the name Dorothea Dix agreed to teach a Sunday school class at jail. Little did she know at the time her kindness would lead to a reform effort in the area of prisons.
The Abolitionist movement in the United States of America was an effort to end slavery in a nation that valued personal freedom and believed “all men are created equal.” Over time, abolitionists grew more strict in their demands, and slave owners entrenched in response, fueling division that led to the American Civil War. Even southerners who did not own any slaves defended the institution of slavery. While a abolitionists were a minority even in the north, their peaceful efforts along with the violence directed against them swayed northern attitudes.
The Temperance Movement this made of people who wanted other people to reduce the amount of alcohol they drank. They also wanted the government to not allow the use of alcohol drinks. Also many thought poor men were spending most of their money to pay in saloons or for alcohol. Alcohol abuse was widespread among men, women and children. Reforms linked alcohol abuse to crime. The breakup of families and mental illness.
Some of the efforts to reform American society came out of new religious movements sweeping across the country. One such movement was the second great awakening a rivival of religious feeling and belief in 1820s and 1830s which emphasized the role that individual played their own societies. The right or duty of the people of a nation to overthrow a government that acts against there common interests and or threatens safety.
