When dealing with the burden of hiding the truth from Torvald, Nora begins to contemplate suicide. At the beginning of act two, Nora is speaking to the nurse and says, “Do you think they would forget their mother if she went away all together?” (Ibsen 1378). This is about her children and her taking her own life, which is incredibly outlandish. The nurse speaks to Nora saying how they need their mother at such a young age and would be damaged by her absence. Nora again is choosing to run and hide from her problems only this time it is affecting her family.
If these statistics have been true for the past decade, there should be more women in higher roles in the workplace. There are still many more men bosses than women although more women earn Bachelor’s degrees. Recently, “women are being cleared to play a greater role in combat — and vie for thousands of jobs — after the military conducted an internal review of how they might perform in artillery, armor and infantry roles” (Chappell). Although it is great that women are now going to be able to have roles in combat, it took many years for them to reach these roles. Since the 1970’s, women have been able to attend service academies.
Until the early 20th century, many women lacked rights that men had. The movie Iron Jawed Angels shows the women’s efforts to gain the right to vote. The main character, Alice Paul, is a suffragist who asked President Woodrow Wilson, “Mr. President, how long must women wait to get their liberty? Let us have the rights we deserve” (Alice Paul).
Paul was still not satisfied, she spent the rest of her life working on a new Constitutional Amendment, known as the Equal Rights Amendment. This Amendment’s goal was to make sure that every person would have rights and equal opportunities. Alice Paul’s She dedicated her time to think of others and their rights. Paul’s actions had a long lasting effect on history, and because of her, all American women now have a voice in politics. Without Alice Paul’s advocation towards the nineteenth amendment, the United States would not allow women to vote, and the nation would not have a woman candidate running for president.
She was not happy with her life before because she thought her acting dreams were ruined so she wanted to make changes so that she would be happy. She met Curley and thought marrying him was a chance at a good life. Instead of improving her life she fell into another big trap by marrying curley.

Not to mention she is completely isolated by the workers at the ranch because of her sexuality and name as curley 's wife.
Since the 1800’s till this day Women’s Rights has been a controversial topic. For many years powerful and non powerful women have struggled to prove that women’s rights are human rights. Women’s rights are the effort to secure equal rights for women around the world and to have equality and remove gender discrimination. Related issues to women’s rights include or have included the right to vote, to work, work pay, birth control, to hold public office, to own property, to serve in the military, to have parental rights, and many more. Susan B. Anthony was a feminist and a leader to the women’s suffrage movement in the late 1800s.
By the late 19th century there were seventeen societies in favor of suffrage for women, thus establishing the National Union of Women’s Suffrage Societies. This caused a conflict as to methods of achieving the desired result. Where one group claimed the best way to be that of pacifism, the other subjected to the path of violence, militants. The fight for the right to vote propelled around the 1850 with ease as it concerned half of the population in the UK, majority of which lacked occupation or any commercial activity which brought in income. Women in the higher tiers of society refused to obey the sex roles dictated to them.
When I tell people that I am an open feminist, some assume that I automatically “hate men,” or believe that women are above men. This is plainly not true. I believe that, to the extent that we can be, men and women should be treated as equals. Although there was much progress during the 1920’s towards women’s rights (specifically, the 19th Amendment, which granted women the right to vote in 1920), it slid backwards in the over the next two decades. There were approximately 1,000 discriminatory laws passed in the United States in the around that time period that prevented women from having the same rights as men.
At the beginning, she is forced to stop seeing and Hamlet and obey her father, because that is what girls in her time period did. She believed Hamlet would marry her and she was forced to suppress her feelings and stop seeing him all together. When her father, Polonius, is killed by Hamlet, she loses herself completely. It is also hinted that she lost her purity later in the play by Hamlet. Ophelia represents loss, because she loses her purity and the love that took it, her father is murdered,

For over 40 years women would have to rally together and publicly protest just for the right to vote. Women protesting and speaking out was considered very unladylike at the time (Rampton). This hard earned victory proved what women can do when organized and became a chronological landmark for the beginning of Women’s Liberation
Plenty of major changes took place in society during this time. One major change was women throughout the 1920s. The most important reason was equal suffrage. For the longest time, women were not allowed to vote because they were not recognized as worthy members of society. Many people, men and women alike, thought this was very unfair.
I am now able to accomplish, almost any goal within reason, just the same as many goals as any man could or would ever try to accomplish. Life in the early 1920’s was unfair, but through good will and hard work. For many women now, it has really paid off. We have come a long way, yet we still have a long way to go. And now for women here in the 20th Century, looking back at the women in the 1920’s it is not who we were, that have changed; it’s who we have become.
Can it be stopped? Absolutely. In this intelligently argued and carefully researched book, Getting Even: Why Women Don 't Get Paid Like Men--And What to Do About It, Evelyn Murphy, Ph.D., examines how much women (and their families) lose over a lifetime to the wage gap, knocks down the myth that women ‘choose’ to make less, and documents the widespread discrimination that 's holding down women 's pay.” The book says that most people believe the pay gap is disappearing slowly, but this is not the case. It says that the pay gap should have ended a decade ago. But, for several years in the 1990s the pay gap widened (Murphy, 17).
During the late 1800’s and early 1900’s women’s suffrage was a huge epidemic in the United States along with the rest of the world. Not only was the United States in the fight for women’s rights, so were places like London, Australia, and even the Bahamas. Women’s suffrage was fighting the right for women to be able to vote within their territory. Women’s suffrage has been going on for centuries and is still a problem within the community that has switched over to gender equality. But was the Civil Rights Movement blinding the issues in the Bahamas?
