In the contemporary independence, liberty, and equality of the new American republic, it was necessitated that women learned new skill and knowledge, also had suitable education to enable them to promote economic growth and reduce inequality. Moreover, in the book “Give me liberty”, Eric Foner wrote that “Even though republican motherhood ruled out direct female involvement in politics, it encouraged the expansion of educational opportunities for women, so that
Introduction “Although women today have greater options through education than their mothers and grandmothers ever dreamed of, the view persists that the real vocation of women is mother: It’s the natural thing” (Senior,). The writer opines that the statement put forward by Senior still holds merit today as we live in a society that favours pronatalism. Pronatalism refers to any attitudes or policies which encourage reproduction and exalt the role of parenthood (Peck). Pronatalism makes assertions about what provides a woman’s ultimate fulfilment in life, and what her destiny will be. The forces of pronatalism are significant to women as it is the philosophy responsible for the persistent idea that a woman’s destiny and ultimate fulfilment is entrenched in childbearing and motherhood.
The success of the progressive era can be contributed, at least in part, to the large participation of women in these volunteer organizations across the country. Women began to take control of what they considered to be their society as well. Women took an almost maternal approach to the changes they wished to institute.
Eleanor exhibited these qualities and so many more. Where some of the feats Eleanor accomplished are not as relevant to women today, such as establishing the Court of Love, her principals and the way she ruled both England and France are still present and waiting to be used as an example for modern-day leadership. Eleanor of Aquitaine took great steps in the way of women’s equality through her life, but now as all girls schools teach girls to be ‘founders’ it is more relevant that Eleanor has left a legacy that exhibits strength, resilience, and a character that one would not soon
Through the spectrum of these women being described as role models as well as leaders by Plutarch, one is able to analyze a current simple woman that could be considered a leader based on her actions that benefit and help others. Interestingly, one of the questions asked in the interview was “do you consider yourself superior to others in AIAS?” and her answer being humble and considering herself vital yet equal, was “absolutely not”, she followed: “I believe we have the same power to help and change the future of our school and field, and working together as enthusiastic young architects, we will eventually achieve a better environment for everyone”. This response showed that even though it is accurate that inevitably group leaders always have one that is the head of the proposals and ideas, by working in a group one can achieve enormous goals since it provides a fairer atmosphere and several different factors are taken into consideration to not leave anything important
Little Girls With Dreams Grow Into Women With Ambition In a "Man 's world" what are we supposed to teach our little girls? How do we teach them to value themselves? To achieve goals? To understand that they are important? We can answer these questions with mentoring.
Women should feel the freedom to be who they truly want to be and not let others tell them how they should be. Everyday women are pressured and terrified to show their true selves because of these stereotypes and false feminine beliefs . Women have values that they are pressured to hide. Orenstein just wants that all to change. Nobody is perfect and the stereotypes people place on one another is the cause of most of the issues women face today.
This was all then passed down to the future generations and so that the importance of America being free would spread ("History of Republican Motherhood"). Women went from having a very small role in society to having a very large and important role. After the Revolutionary War, many changes in women’s education began taking place based on the expectations for the new citizens. The War taught the people that it was very useful to be prepared for anything. They saw the education of women was one way to prepare its citizens for success.
In the thoughts of Betty Friedan in her Feminine Mystique, “The key to the trap is, of course, education. The Feminine Mystique has made higher education for women seem suspect, unnecessary and even dangerous. But I think that education, and only education, has saved, and can continue to save, American women from the greater dangers of the feminine mystique”.
