In American education institutions, it has become a common practice to highlight the 19th Amendment’s 1920 passage as the most significant victory for suffragists in many years. However, very few academics have examined objectively the critical role of African-American women in shattering barriers to heights that are beyond what most can comprehend or imagine. This struggle has come to an end with Kamala Harris being elected Vice President. It is a stunning example of the way that these black women, no matter their race or gender, have broadened the scope of American politics. This essay argues that politics is more than just participation in elections. The author believes that there has been an increase in participation in politics by black women over the past few years, however politics goes beyond just lawmaking and representation. African American women are desperate for recognition if they want to be elected.
They can also influence other women’s behavior, improving the lives of their families through politics. Their political power is used to address the needs of the poor. The American allegory book, “Their Eyes Were Watching God” depicts the struggles of a woman in America. It reveals the wide range of political realities that are associated with freedom and operation of the American women. This book is a compelling proof of the fact that black women’s intimate, psychological and emotional experiences are fundamentally political.
