The struggle to achieve women’s suffrage in the United States took 72 years. In the 19th Century females had no voting rights. As argued by Antis “mass of women were too weak or passive or uninterested to vote” (Wheeler 190). Women are mostly stereotyped as people of less importance to the society. However, Jane Addams clarifies that “a woman’s vote would make them stronger, more responsible and civic-minded” (Wheeler 190). Jane Addams’s mentions from an editorial The Ladies’ Home Journal that it was based on “why women should vote” not “why women should have the vote”. Jane Addams was a strong supporter of women’s suffrage. She wanted to show how it would affect women if they were not included in the act of voting. The Ladies’ Home Journal describes that a man’s “point of view” is “quite as honest and valuable” as a woman’s (Wheeler 191). Her effort in supporting women’s suffrage made her attain an executive post in Women Suffrage Association between the years 1911-1914. By the year of 1920, women were granted the right to vote. .Sweatshops and factories in Chicago exploited working women and children. Jane Addams’s colleague and volunteer Florence Kelley was appointed by the head of the Illinois State Bureau of Labor to investigate the sweating system in Chicago.
