The Haymarket Square Massacre occurred in Chicago Illinois in 1886. It involved workers who wanted to shorten their hours in the work place. Many were working 8 hours a day and they wanted to change that. The workers went on strike and caused a lot of problems, shooting cops, and causing chaos. This made the labor union very upset.
At one time, women were told what to do in every aspect of their lives. They cooked, cleaned, and cared for their husband and children. In 1920, the 19the Amendment was passed which gave women the right to vote. While this was a big movement in the progress of women's rights, did it really equalize women and men? Does voting make people equal? In a way yes, because it gives everyone the right to put out their own opinion and the chance to affect the governments decision.
