Go Get Mother's Picket Sign synopsis
Go and get a sit-up mark telling the story of Americans who have struggled to balance their public and private lives as wives, mothers and housewives. The Americans fought to gain an intense fight against the idea that women in America could not participate in politics without creating a big vacuum at home.
It was believed that if women allowed this vacuum to occur, the deterioration and degradation of domestic life would destroy the society of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Men were unable to help women in the roles of housewives, since men were thought to have neither the experience nor the ability to learn the system and the way home and children were cared for.
The family framework known by the Victorians remained under sentence. However, in order to counter this concept, breakthroughs created a new woman working in both the home and the world.
All their voting materials showed that these women had not forgotten their responsibility towards the house. All they used included the right to vote and preserved the image of the obedient wife and mother.
By combining the forces of materialculture and voting, this work will further examine the right of women to vote and expand their knowledge in the political and internal spheres.
