Reform movements started in the 19th century and early 20th century to address specific problems. The women’s rights movement, the temperance movement and the movement to end child labor would be a part of it. All of these movements became successful by hard work. The women’s rights movement is when women fought for their rights and entitlements. The temperance movement is a social movement that prohibited the use of alcoholic beverages. The movement to end child labor was made to end child labor.

Women all over America were denied their rights. They felt that it was unfair how men had all of the rights and they don’t. This is shown in Document 1. Two of the rights that they were denied are, the right to the product of her work and the right to be free of their husbands custody. It was as if they were treated as slaves. Even after the time of slavery. But after fighting congress and doing a lot of protesting they were able to achieve some of the things they wanted. In Document 2 it states that women got better wages for equal work and a number of laws women wanted were passed. In other words it took hard work to achieve what they wanted. It did not just come over night.

Child labor started in the 1800’s. Young children would go work in mills where they would get hurt and only get paid little to nothing at all. It was very difficult to abolish child labor. In Document 8 it says that, “ Only states had the authority to make laws against it.” So if one state did not agree with ending child labor that state would be pro child labor. It took a lot of work to abolish child labor in America. This is shown in Document 9. One way the Fair Labor Standards Act protected children is, “ No producer, manufacturer or dealer may ship, or deliver for shipment in interstate commerce, any goods produced in an establishment which has employed oppressive child labor within thirty days of the removal of all goods.

In conclusion the women’s rights movement and the movement to end child labor were two movements that drastically changed U.S. history. It took a lot of hard work and a lot of protesting but the movements made a change. I agree with both of these movements. They let women have rights and children not have to work in factories or anywhere.
