In a time of fighting for freedom, not all felt free. The new declaration claims “All men are created equal”, leaving the women still with no rights and completely relying on men. Abigail Adams, the wife of John Adams, used her position to bring forward her own strong feminist views and felt women should be included in the declaration. Abigail’s fight for women's rights made an extensive impact on history because she pioneered a path for future women to come. While Abigail Adams fought for women's rights, John Adams thought women should just be house workers and supporters.
With limited options for women professions, Dix decides to open an elementary school inside her grandmother’s house in 1821. The school was named "the Hope" and it served mainly the poor children of Boston whose parents could not afford an education. Unfortunately, the school came to a closing in 1826 due to Dorothea being repeatedly and sporadically ill. At this time, Dorothea wrote her first book, Conversations on Common Things. This book for children was quite popular and sold many copies. The book reflected Dix’s belief that women should be educated to the same level as men.
For example, an autobiography by Bates and autobiographies from the Little Rock Nine, a recorded interview manuscript, a personal letter from Bates to Roy Wilkins, monographs on women leaders in the Movement, as well as, on the Civil Rights Movement itself examining Bates’s leadership skills during the integration of Little Rock, monographs analyzing the actions on several women in the Civil Rights Movement, monographs reviewing Brown vs. Board of Education, monographs on the desegregation and crisis of Little Rock Central High School, newspaper article examining the integration crisis of Little Rock and biographies on Bates, provide necessary information on her roles as a leader in the community and in the Civil Rights Movement. The newspaper article, along with the biographies on Bates’s life and the monographs about women, Brown vs. Board of Education and Bates’s leadership skills, offer outside interpretation of events. In the newspaper article, I believe I will find a different viewpoint on the integration of Little Rock and how the president 's involvement allowed the integration to move forward. In monographs, I expect to find critical analysis of her work in the community as the president of the local NAACP chapter and her leadership skills in the integration of Little Rock Central High School. I also expect to find how she differed from other women leaders in the movement.
In 1833, she began to publish essays in the Western Messenger, James Freeman Clarke’s journal, and in Boston papers. She worked at Bronson Alcott’s Temple school as a teacher from 1836 to 1837. Then for five winters, starting in 1839, Fuller held her conversations. Some of the women were Unitarians, and all were intellectuals and social activists. Since women had the same knowledge as men, but had little chance to express their thoughts, Fuller created a place where they could talk freely and express their thoughts on different matters.
Born in London, Mary Wollstonecraft was an English author who advocated for the equality of women. She was born in a family of seven where her father used to bully his wife, Mary’s mother (Wollstonecraft, Todd & Rees-Mogg, 1989). While working as a translator, she wrote a book titled ’A Vindication of the Rights of Woman’ which advocated for the equality of women. The main agenda of her book was educational reforms, mostly giving women access to the same education opportunity as men. Later she left for Paris and met an American captain by the name Captain Gilbert Imlay.
“I declare to you that woman must not depend upon the protection of man, but must be taught to protect herself, and there I take my stand.” Words that were conveyed by Susan B. Anthony, a school teacher that dedicated her life on supporting the women’s movement. Susan B. Anthony played a vital role in the equality between men and women whose work changed the course of history between the two genders; her knowledge and dedication in the suffrage drove her way to rebel against inequality. Susan Brownell Anthony was born on February 15, 1820 in Adams, Massachusetts. Her parents were Daniel Anthony, who worked as an operator in a textile mill before it came crashing down in 1837, and Lucy Read, a mother of six who stayed home to cook and clean.
The third, and final, device Florence Kelley uses to build her argument is a shift in topic. Her speech is delivered to the National American Woman Suffrage Association, a group primarily concerned with the equality of voting laws. She vows to use her right to petition “in every possible way until the right to ballot is granted.” By referring to a common goal shared by the author and her audience, a sense of trust is established between the two parties. This collects extra support for her main cause, child labor laws. Children are meant to run, play, and be free, not work excessive hours in a heinous factory.
(Book, 521) Before 1910, those who wanted women to move out of the home into social activities, higher education, and paid labor called themselves “the woman movement”. (Book 533) Educators believed that learning should focus on real life problems and that children should learn to use their intelligence to control their environment. Excluded from holding political office, women joined clubs that showed more interest in improving society than in reforming government. (Book 533) Many women later began to use the term “feminism” to describe their reform efforts that stressed social justice, economic equality, and sexual freedom. (Book, 533) Margaret Sanger is a woman that pushed for widespread use of contraception.
In “Whistlin ' and Crowin ' Women of Appalachia: Literacy Practices Since College, ”Katherine Kelleher Sohn writes about case-studies to track the literacy development of three female Appalachian college graduates to determine how education can change their literary habits, all of whom are Sohn’s former students. Sohn explores how the literate practices has influence their jobs, home, and community. She illustrates the various ways literacy has empowered the three women. Sohn uses her findings to clear the years of fallibilities from education and public perception of the Appalachian culture. Reading "Whistlin ' and Crowin ' Women of Appalachia: Literacy Practices Since College" has made an impact in way I view the importance of
One of the main differences between the two teaching styles is that the parent in the poem comes off very harsh when it comes to her technique of teaching her children while my parents were polite when it came to teaching me new things about life. Another difference between the two teaching styles is that the adult in the poem tried to micromanage the child's life, while my parents let me experience a lot on my own. I believe that her culture and language had a huge impact on her writing. In the first few lines she wrote about washing and cleaning the clothes and using rocks to dry the clothes. Also, a lot of the animals and dishes that were talked about were not from the United States but from her native country.
