i will agree the black movement was more momentous, than the womens movement. but never the less it doesnt take away the quality of leadership skills that these women had. like u have the likes of Elizabeth Cady Stanton, just to name one, fighting for the vote and actually winning, must require a hell of a lot leadership qualities.
it doesnt matter if the woman is a leader of a mass movement or even the pricipal of a school, the size does not make a diference. its the quality. u cant judge the quality of a womans leadership ability by just loooking who had the biggest movement.
