72 years were necessary for women to enter the political world, the greatest men's sphere. To understand why it took so many years for women to get the right to vote, it appears necessary to deal with the origins of the movement and to analyze the consequences of some important historical events that urged women to go on fighting for equality, but in some cases also contribute in the slowing down of the feminist movement. It is also important to emphasize women's achievements after they eventually got the right to vote. The Women's movement did not stop after they got started. Otherwise, in the American melting-pot, mixing many races, we can wonder if The Women's Movement was at the time as united as it was generally depicted. It will be interesting to study the women's struggle without differentiating the White, Black, Immigrant, Native American or Jewish women. The 1848 Declaration of Sentiments began by, "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men and women are created equal". This sentence could have been the slogan of The Women's Movement, it was undoubtedly their goal: a perfect equality between men and women regardless of their race or social status. But was it actually the case? Were women able to forget their differences and work together to improve their lives?
