Is the Women’s March on Washington going to be another historical moment in U.S. History? It appears that it will be. In 1963, African Americans peacefully marched on Washington under the guidance of Martin Luther King, Jr. This march helped end segregation and led to many civil rights inroads for jobs and freedom.
Historical Pattern of Women’s Rights
Traditionally, women have followed African Americans in their efforts to obtain equal rights. Black American men received the right to vote on February 3, 1870 when Congress passed the 15th Amendment to the Constitution. However, women in America didn’t receive the right to vote until 1920, when the 19th Amendment was passed. This was 50 years later. Now once again, history seems poised to take another turn. Fifty-four years after African Americans marched on Washington, women are making their plans for a march to end workplace discrimination and sexual assaults on women.
