Read Time:3 Minute, 11 Second

Women’s Rights movement of the 1850’s was sparked, in part, by women who chose to wear pants and not adorn themselves as tradition dictated.

It didn’t take long for the women’s rights movement to drop their drawers, however, to disassociate themselves from popularity of bloomers as a competitor for attention.  The connection stuck tho, and bloomers are forever now associated with feminism.

Women dressed like men.  Goodness.  Add a dash of help from Hollywood with pant-wearing super-star actresses like Marlene Dietrich and Katharine Hepburn to normalize the notion in the minds of millions of pubescent female fans.

Next came smoking, drinking, birth control, credit cards, social rankings…

Fast Forward 170 years

Men dressed like women.  Goodness.  Add a dash of help from Hollywood with pant-wearing super-star actors like (insert favorite trans-actor here) to normalize the notion in the minds of millions of pubescent male fans all the while screeching something unintelligible about equity and fairplay or you’ll lose your job, career and livelihood.

Enter the Men’s Rights movement with new and improved complaints as yet untold.

Sometime around the 1850’s Elizabeth Cady Stanton wrote a list of issues the women demanded be corrected:

“The history of mankind is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations on the part of man toward woman, having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over her. To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world.”


    • Married women were legally dead in the eyes of the law
    • Women were not allowed to vote
    • Women had to submit to laws when they had no voice in their formation
    • Married women had no property rights
    • Husbands had legal power over and responsibility for their wives to the extent that they could imprison or beat them with impunity
    • Divorce and child custody laws favored men, giving no rights to women
    • Women had to pay property taxes although they had no representation in the levying of these taxes
    • Most occupations were closed to women and when women did work they were paid only a fraction of what men earned
    • Women were not allowed to enter professions such as medicine or law
    • Women had no means to gain an education since no college or university would accept women students
    • With only a few exceptions, women were not allowed to participate in the affairs of the church
    • Women were robbed of their self-confidence and self-respect, and were made totally dependent on men

Chaos shamelessly clipped this above bit from history-of-the-womens-rights-movement we apologize.

Chaos suspects each and every talking point has been achieved for and by women at this point and the chaos theory is in full swing.

The world needs a new cause but so few of the complainers these days are truly hurting and many are, in fact, are counted among the billionaire classes.

Why do Progressives seem to be so much more wealthy than the classes they wish to manipulate? If you must think about this question..please do.

Suffrage history timeline

We must object to several flippant comments in the timeline.  Sarah Moore Grimké for one.

Sarah Grimké begins her speaking career as an abolitionist and a women’s rights advocate. She is eventually silenced by male abolitionists who consider her public speaking a liability.

We find no evidence of this claim of sucumbing to male supression.

Quite the opposite:

The General Association of Congregational Ministers of Massachusetts also did not like their writings and did not like that they were giving speeches in front of men, so they wrote a public statement against the Grimké sisters.

Sarah and Angelina kept writing even though it was dangerous. Their next booklets addressed women’s rights and the reasons they should help African American people. 

text also shamelessly lifted..
