Frances Willard

Frances Willard was an women’s activist for women all over the world. She was educated enough to realize that men and women were not equal. She felt like it was important for women to have the same opportunities. She fought against alcohol abuse, women’s right to vote and many other things. She motivated women to stay strong and helped start a few movements boosting women’s morale. Frances helped found one of the largest organizations in the 19th century. I am so thankful Frances and many other women activists that spoke up for women. I strongly believe that me and other women would not be as far as we are in life it wasn’t for them. I am forever grateful.
