As briefly as you can, summarize the larger history of women and social change in the U.S. from 1800-1975. How did women become involved in social causes? Which causes did women participate in? What changed (for women and the larger American public) over the course of this time period
History records two distinct waves of feminism that swept across the United States of America bringing along drastic changes in attitudes, perception, culture and, most importantly, the law. The initial wave of feminism occurred in the nineteenth century during the anti-slavery movement, also known as the abolitionist era. On the other hand, the second wave of feminism occurred the 1960s and 1970s. In all that period, women have taken great steps, while suffering several setbacks, in the cause to achieve equal rights and elevate their status within the mostly male-dominated society. Nevertheless, these two eras stand out as the periods of active campaign and activism that facilitated the enormous changes noted in the modern society with regards to the rights of women.
The main trigger behind the pursuit of social advancements in the beginning of the nineteenth century was religion. During this era which came to be known as the Second Great Awakening, the women began to focus on emotional experience rather than dogma. This era saw to it that women were allowed to have more leadership positions outside the domestic environment.
