This painting shows what happened in one of the sessions of the National Woman's Suffrage Association in Chicago during 1880. This association was lead by Lucy Stone, Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady, and Alice Paul. You can see a lot of women in the crowd, a women speaking, and many other women behind her. You can also see two tables with signs that said “Join the national woman's suffrage association.” The women who were in the crowd might be women who went to the association because they wanted to join, or women who had already joined but wanted to listen to the leaders of the association speaking to see how they were going to get their rights. The women speaking looks like the leader, and she is telling the crowd how they are going to fight for what they want. The women behind the leader look like they are the other leader and they are sitting down because they take turns to speak. I also imagine these women writing down in a list all the women who want to join the association. This painting relates to the women's rights movement because it was drawn based on an association that was the National Woman's Suffrage Association.
