Womyn rights have change over many years.
The beginning of the fight for women’s suffrage in the United States, which
predates Jeannette Rankin’s entry into Congress by nearly 70 years, grew out of a
larger women’s rights movement. That reform effort evolved during the 19th

securing the franchise for women. Women’s suffrage leaders, moreover, often
disagreed about the tactics and whether to prioritize federal or state reforms.
Ultimately, the suffrage movement provided political training for some of the early
women pioneers in Congress, but its internal divisions foreshadowed the
persistent disagreements among women in Congress and among women’s rights
activists after the passage of the 19th Amendment.
