As stated earlier, Obama shares his personal experiences of growing up with his grandmother and a single mother and witnessing the roles of women flourish since then. By comparing and contrasting the roles of women from earlier times to the current roles of women in society, the audience is able to grasp the progress that women have made over time, as well as the way women are viewed and treated. “In my lifetime we’ve gone from a job market that basically confined women to a handful of often poorly paid positions to a moment when women not only make up roughly half of the workforce but are leading in every sector, from sports to space, from Hollywood to the Supreme Court”. As he describes, women used to only be exposed to a few jobs that provided little financial benefits for them, compared to today, where women are successful in pursuing careers high up in the business industry, government, professional sports
Today more than 100,000 girls play sports once considered to be “guys only.” I would like to talk to you today about equal rights, how women have the same skills as men , and how boys and girls work together to become better teammates and also better friends.

There is a higher group intelligence when women are on the team and the team's performance is more organized and successful. Even with all of the dangers women face, they still want to fight for our country. In order to be qualified for a job in the military, both males and females have to go through the same procedures and training. Although couples can form, it is tradition for men to fight in combat, and females have a harder time meeting the same physical requirements as men, but women can do just as much as males and have proven this by their accomplishments and motivation such as the two women who graduated Ranger school and the females soldiers that go through intense and physically exhausting training just to fight for
Today, millions of women can implement their rights to vote in all elections in the united states of America, but this (rights) did not come easily to those women who sacrifice their lives to make this happen. In the speech “Address to Congress on Women’s Suffrage”, Catt delivered her message for women’s right from a firsthand account of what she had experienced as a woman living in the United States of America in the 19th century. She advocated for the rights of women to vote because she believes in equal rights and justice for all citizens. The speech was very successful because of the use of ethos, pathos, and logos. The purpose of the speech was to pressure Congress into passing a legislation that would give women the right to vote in the United States of America.
Before the Civil War, women were rarely involved in any part of the war, but during it, women started to help the war effort by becoming nurses, and now by joining the Army. Document 4 is a letter from a war doctor; in her letter, she writes, “my post the open field between the bullet and the hospital...I write letters home for wounded soldiers, not political addresses.” As women like Clara Barton become more willing to help in wartime, they get more opportunities to become involved; whether being a nurse or a disguised soldier. Another example of this willingness is shown in Document 7; it is a photo of Eleanor Roosevelt speaking with American soldiers in the Galapagos Islands. Not everyone needs to serve in order to help with the war. Women like Eleanor Roosevelt play a huge role by lifting the spirits of American soldiers.

McCormick writes to young western girls because they are the next generation women that both care and can make a difference. This generation can find unity in each other by recognizing our different but similar adversities, and helping one another reach a better world. Unlike some women in the past, we can use each other to build on our accomplishments cumulatively instead of tearing others down to benefit personally. In such a patriarchal world, women definitely need to work harder to attain their goals; although, to climb the ladder of power, some ladies step on their fellow female peers on the way up, and justify this by the male’s dominant role in
How does one limit their reasoning of how Oprah Winfrey has changed their lives. I would like to start with the fact of how she has shown me that women can be just as powerful as men. In this world today it can be hard to remember that, but Winfrey will never let you forget it. From starting her own charity to help girls get a better education in a place where they were told they couldn’t be taught and are treated like objects. She has continue to strive for a better place for every human, no matter race, gender, sexuality or past life.
Women have begun to study these subjects and have brought great credit to themselves by contributing actively in those fields. As a result, every school is now conscious of imparting education to girls. A lot of women saw that education as an entry point to other opportunities, such as, the correlation between education and employment. In fact, recent studies show that in 2012, women that were enrolled in higher education was at a staggering 71% and still keeps on increasing while the percentage of men enrolled stagnated at 61% over the past two decades. The gains in educational attainment for women have vastly improved allowing women more prospects in the workforce and then
Before the war women where house wife’s. The government was women because men went off to war. The government had come up with campaigning to persuade women too come in the work force. In 1945 women had war jobs, 6 million women had these jobs. Women were less than men.
The feminist movement has blossomed over the past three hundred years and has aided women with gaining the equal right to vote, have an education and be their own reverenced person. Although we have a long way to go, women and many more people owe these rights to Abigail Adams. She was the wife to the second president of the United States, John Adams. Abigail believed in many different ideas that are kindred to the values we have today. Our society today has been striving to give women and people of color more liberation when it comes to ownership of their bodies, opinions and rights to live.

Attagirl Susan B. Anthony, Alice Paul, Ida B. Wells, and ALL women’s right’s activists! All these fine men and women who fought for women equality and suffrage are finally treated right by the roaring twenties. It is extremely sad that some of the most active women who fought for this cause, are no longer alive to witness the newborn, birthed from their hard work. Like a child, there still remain plenty of growth for women’s role in society as time moves forward.
Women’s rights and women’s abilities to do things have greatly increased from how they used to be. From having to sell our bodies to live, to now having the opportunity to do anything we set our mind to. Being able to vote or even having the chance to run as a candidate for U.S. president wasn’t something that was possible one hundred years ago. People reading Redeeming Love will have the understanding of how women were treated back then. It will give the readers a sense of appreciation.
