Big Picture Does it seem curious or logical that many feminists did not place securing the vote at the top of their reform agenda? Was this rooted in a pragmatic assessment of the political possibilities? Were other reforms more compelling? Did they fell unprepared or unsuited for political participation? How important is the right to vote to social and economic advancement? Do you think the women's movement was ever a majority movement? Did the majority of all American women support the women's movement? Did the majority benefit from the achievements of the movement?
