Her most famous work is her groundbreaking article, “Kinder, Küche, Kirche as Scientific Law: Psychology Constructs the Female.” The title of the article is a reference to what the Nazis believed the ideal embodiment of a woman, only concerns children, kitchen and church. This article was considered one of the earliest feminist critiques of how psychology had neglected, omitted, and made myths about women. It has been reprinted over 42 times in six different languages and been included in the 1970 anthology Sisterhood is Powerful: An Anthology of Writings From The Women’s Liberation Movement. Other notable works include, “Neural Symbolic Activity,” “An Object-Superiority Effect,” and “What the Frog’s Eye Tells the Human Brain”.

Women were highly involved in education, giving them the power to encourage equality as a primary value, pursuing nationalism. They were the communicators between the government and the citizens, enforcing socialist ideas and communist values. Similarly, in the United States women made up 45.9% among all research and professional categories in 1955, while in the Soviet Union women made up 36% in the same year.

Sojourner Truth, a women’s rights activist and an abolitionist, had arrived to a women’s rights convention in hopes of convincing men and women for equity between the two. With an intent to shed light of the prejudice women were facing at the time, she recited her speech “Ain’t I a Woman?” and garnered much attention, so much so that she is now considered a historical figure. In fact, her speech explaining the injustice of the behavior toward women is still very much relevant today; one culture it is certainly pertinent to is Armenia. Armenia rests in the South Caucasus and is situated between the Black and Caspian Seas; it verges on the north and east by Georgia and Azerbaijan, and on the south and west by Iran and Turkey. The culture is,

She is basically this incredible, feminist super-hero who travels this and other countries to help organize and lecture about issues around feminism, race and sex caste systems, gender roles, child abuse and non-violent conflict resolution among other important topics. At first, I just thought that Gloria Steinem was our generation’s feminist mother Theresa. That all her activism and
For many years women in particular had to fight for gender equality which is still something we fight for today. In the late 1800s and early 1900s women came together to end one of the most controversial issues of that time; voting. Some prominent women figures that are known today helped shape women of our generation by helping this cause. With the passing of the 19 amendment (women suffrage) it led to dramatic changes in the political and economic systems. At this time men believed women belonged in the kitchen, but with the laws now changing it started to turn things around.
Declaration of sentiment was a historical event which took place in the first women’s convention for rights in Seneca Falls, New York. The convention brought structural changes in many aspects of gender bias. The women convention came out with several resolution which were accepted then gave a added advantage for the empowerment of women in US.

Gloria Marie Steinem Gloria Marie Steinem, an American feminist, journalist and social/political activist, was born March 25, 1934. The start to her “Famous” career as a feminist leader was in 1969 when she published the article “After Black Power, Women‘s Liberation.” Her first major accomplishment was the WMC (Women’s Media Center) co- founded alongside with Jane Forda and Robin Morgan. She described the organization as something that works “to move women visible and powerful in the media.” Once her career took off she co-founded the feminist themed magazine Ms. with Dorothy Pitman Hughes. Another thing Steinem did in 1972 was a key factor in the feminist community; she was the first women to speak at the National Press Club. Before her
Her epoch – making work, A Room of One’s Own(1927) and her other essays and papers state all about the women’s economic, cultural, social and educational status in the present time. She is the first to use the term ‘patriarchal value’ which must be fought against and the first major feminist writer devoting the patriarchal and sexist values, the presentation of women in literature and in fact in her case the political feminism has turned into a literal feminism. In 1949, The Second Sex by Simone De Beauvoir, a French writer is a radical work in which the radical aspect of feminist criticism was voiced for the first time and here she has suggested how the woman is actually the other, and also how she is on the margin or on the periphery in the patriarchal society. For throwing light on the radical aspect of feminist criticism, De Beauvoir has studied quite a number of so called revolutionary writers of female freedom like Henry Miller, Norman Mailer, John Genett and D.H.Lawrence and has found their presentations of women confront certain patriarchal stereo type. Women in D.H..Lawrence, Mailer, Miller and Genett play a secondary role and these writers’ radical views of sexual freedom of women center around the marginal role of women, the weaker sex.
