This was very intriguing to society because the roles that that they took on were not expected of their gender. Revolutionary Mothers: Women in the Struggle for America 's Independence illustrates the historical events of different groups of women and simply how women from a variety of backgrounds existed. The relationship between men and women of this time was questionable. Women exhibited signs of bravery and responsibility.
She even committed suicide due to the fact of how badly she needed to free herself from the Creole lifestyle. Edna, a remarkable lady in a sense, rebelled against the norms of society to openly be herself. People like Edna, or people brave enough to take a chance to change societal norms, come rare to find, especially during the late 1800’s. Edna never agreed to anything she did not want, after the marriage to Leonce, and was quite straight-forward with her desires. Edna, ideally, is a great role model to look up to in today’s world for filling that brave, young woman role to not let society shape her, despite the few occurrences she had intimate moments with multiple men or her carelessness towards her children.
You and I wouldn’t have to bear so much,” (Lowry 112). Jonas expresses that the Elders withhold memories from the past, and therefore, this deprivation eliminates the knowledge within them.

Contrary to what Aristotle thought women’s role to be in society which was not a primary role as a citizen but a supportive one (58), women and children played a massive role in Algerians’ fight for independence. Without them, it could be argued, that they could not have been able to achieve independence. Hence, different perception of the citizenship leads to different assumptions of citizen rights. Not only this, but depending on how strong the beliefs of one being a citizen possessing certain rights are, the others can be overshadowed and overcome by them. In this example, Algerians’ strong belief of their citizenship did not help them capitulate and they kept fighting for independence until they finally gained independence from others – the French.
One of her more famous letters would discuss how John Adams should remember the ladies in forming the new government. ”Do not put such unlimited power into the hands of the husbands. Remember all men would be tyrants if they could. If particular care and attention is not paid to the ladies we are determined to foment a rebellion, and will not hold ourselves bound by any laws in which we have no voice or representation.” Although she had great influence on her husband’s decisions, he would ultimately forget about the ladies.
She was always the sister who pointed out flaws if something didn’t seem right. She also influenced most of the sisters to be more confident and independent than social norms of that time. If she ceased to exist, the thought of creating some sort of revolutionary group would have never crossed any of the other sisters mind. Each sister had something holding them back. For Dede it was her family, and for Patria it was her religion.
Men should have absolute rule over society. This was the mindset back when women's rights activists were considered rare and unorthodox. In A Declaration of Sentiments and Resolutions, Elizabeth Cady Stanton rejects the status quo and finds solutions to the overbearing problems she sees within society. A concept that has greatly been dreamt over throughout history has been challenged, by a woman. Elizabeth Cady Stanton exerts repetition, allusion, and pathos to express her opinions in favor of increasing women's rights.
Suffrage was a key point for women during that time frame,whereas the gentlemen endure the daily charge of the family’s well-being by maintaining the order. Women,thereof did not have a saying in what was going on.

No, not in today 's world. Yes, having honest and trust are a big part in every marriage it is a value that everyone holds dearly. These two values are what can make or break a marriage in modern society now. Being in a manipulating relationship you may not notice it is going on until you hear about someone else 's life or they point it out to you. Henrik Ibsen in the story creates the image of when Nora realizes she is not in the perfect relationship she thought she was for the past eight years and notices that she needs to grow as a person instead of being manipulated by her
In Shirley Jackson’s “The Lottery,” the practice of tradition versus what would be considered morally right is perhaps born out of fear of taking a step back rather than progressing so people choose to stick with what is considered the safe route rather than stepping into the world of the unknown in an attempt to save themselves in the long run. Many times people blindly follow a tradition because it is something that has been done for many years, but no one ever seems to stop and question why it is we follow these certain traditions. Tessie Hutchinson, a woman who lives in the village who went along with the tradition of the lottery and never questioned it, that is until she is the “lucky winner” of the June 27th lottery where she calls foul
Some significant reforms in the 1900s were the homes families and strangers lived in going from slums to nicer living conditions. For example living in an apartment that is meant for 1 maybe 2 adults has 10 to 15 adults living in it with a bathroom down the hall away from the rooms for people in other apartments to use as well, or when someone gets a sickness in the apartment and everyone in the whole building gets it because everything is contaminated from the person being sick. It went from that to a little bit bigger homes with lesser people and cleaner rooms and bathrooms. Upton Sinclairs was an activist because he took part in what he thought was right when it came to meet packaging and how it needs to be reformed and cleaned. And if
Progressives were a group of well educated people in the late 1800s and early 1900s that were from a city that tried to help solve social and political problems.

Nat Turners Rebellion became monumental for many people of color, he was idolized and respected for his courageous actions. The rebellion created fear that spread through the South, even those in favor for abolishment now wanted stricter laws for slaves. Turner was “recorded on the list of dishonor” for the organization he had lead (“An Address To The Slave Of The united Slaves”). There had been an interview by Thomas R. Gray, defending and slightly sympathizing with Turners actions, many rejected the validation of the interview and felt as if he just wanted “to trick, confuse, and overwhelm the slave’s minds.” (“The Southampton Tragedy”).
What are some of the hardships Americans in the early 1800s faced when traveling? One hardship they faced was having their entire food supply exhausted. Most of the families had to kill their oxen for food and leave their wagons, which resulted in the travelers walking on foot. Unfortunately, a lot of the people ended up dying of starvation anyway. Another hardship they faced was not being able to bury those that had died in coffins.
