Anthony, `On Behalf of the Woman Suffrage Amendment,` 1880; Margaret Sanger, `A Moral Necessity of Birth Control,` 1921; Mary McLeod Bethune, `A Century of Progress of Negro Women,` 1933; Eleanor Roosevelt, `On the Adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights,` 1948; Shirley Chisholm, `People and Peace, Not Profits and War,` 1969; Geraldine Ferraro, `Vice Presidential Nomination Acceptance Address,` 1984; Gloria Steinem, `A Twenty-First Century Feminism,` 2002; Nancy Pelosi, `Speech Upon Her Election as Speaker of the House,` 2007, and many more unforgettable speeches by spirited and influential American women.
