Explains how the new-fashioned outfit, bloomers, helped Amelia Bloomer, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Susan B. Anthony spread the word about women's rights. The women's movement was led by the pioneering actions of Amelia Bloomer, Susan B. Anthony, and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. One of the early efforts of these women was to challenge the way women dressed. They stopped wearing the restricting corsets and heavy skirts and petticoats and began wearing loose-fitting trousers that came to be called "bloomers." This entertaining story could be a fun way to introduce this era.
