      <span style=”font-weight: 400;”>Relationship between Women’s Movement and ich might have been denied to them. From all these movements what can be deduced is that the American people will always fight for their rights and that is what makes them very aggressive. Among the movements that have graced the USA include the Abolitionist movement and Women’s rights movement. The abolitionist movement had the objective of doing away with slavery whereas the Women’s rights movement wanted to end social oppression (DuBois, 2021). A look at them both it is understood that both were fighting for social inclusion of their various groups. Both movements wanted to grant members from their groups a better life that would include social inclusion. With slave trade continuing, the abolitionist movement wanted to grant the slaves freedom as well as end social discrimination that was being experienced between the whites and the blacks. On the other end, the women’s movement was fighting for them to have a right to vote as well as the lack of opportunities for women. </span>

      <span style=”font-weight: 400;”>Looking at the above what can be concluded is that both movements had the same objective of granting their members the right to freedom. While slaves were physically enslaved, women were socially enslaved. The Abolitionist movement can be said to have given the Women’s rights movement the power and will to fight. Women just like slaves did not have any right to divorce, own land, vote among many other rights that they were denied. The objectives of the movements brought them together in a bid to fight for freedoms (DuBois, 2021). The Women’s rights movement and the Abolitionist movement provided an opportunity to those who had been downtrodden and oppressed (both men and women) a chance and an opportunity to have a common goal and fight together for their basic rights. The two movements provided the platform for men and women to fight together so that they could be granted the rights that they had been denied.</span>
