In the early 20th century the United States had many women fighting for rights. There were two main parties the NWP (national Women's Party) and NAWSA (National American Woman's Suffrage Association). The debate between the parties was which strategies would work more effectively. Ultimately both parties lead to the passing of the 19th amendment and women getting the right to vote. The passing of the 19th amendment allowed women to attain many more rights including the ability to get jobs that men have and play sports.
