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.
Who runs the world? Girls. Laurel Thatcher wrote that “Martha Ballard was as independent as an eighteenth-century housewife could be” In her essay she analyzes the diary of Martha Ballard; a midwife in the 18th century, who recorded her experiences and work on a daily basis in her diary. Laurel Thatcher proves that Martha Ballard was an exceptional independent woman who was also constrained by the expectations put on midwifes. Thatcher portrayed the quality of women’s lives through the life of Martha Ballard and the women around her.
In order to properly understand the significance of the artist Mary Cassatt and the influence she had on the focus of feminism, we must take her life into consideration. She was by no means your average woman of the late Nineteenth Century; most women would have been schooled in keeping homes, cooking and learning how to serve their husbands and future children. This never seemed to be a thought in the singular and seemingly solitary mind of the artist in question even though she was raised to be a proper lady. Born Mary Stevenson Cassatt, in Allegheny City, Pennsylvania, 1844, the young artist was raised in an affluent and comfortable family. During this time, an education was not viewed as complete until the student in question had traveled abroad and bettered
She was put in charge of nursing when allied and British soldiers in Turkey had been wounded. She never did have any children as her main focus was on reforming nursing. Nightingale was baptized in the Church of England and when she was home she attended church, but some of Nightingales grandparents we Unitarians, but her parents and her remained at the Church of England, even though Nightingale disagreed with it theological
Who runs the world? Girls. The life of Martha Ballard, a strong and independent woman Laurel Thatcher wrote that “Martha Ballard was as independent as an eighteenth-century housewife could be.” In her essay “Martha Ballard and Her Girls”, she analyzes the diary of Martha Ballard; a midwife in the 18th century; who recorded her experiences and works on a daily basis in her diary. Martha wrote in her diary for 27 years, from 1785 to 1812, while living in Hallowell, Maine. Laurel Thatcher proves that Martha Ballard was an exceptional independent woman who was also constrained by the expectations put on women.
Nurses had played a crucial part of every single event of the war. Thier work directly lowered the American casualty mortality rate. Amongst the many lives lost, around 201 nurses died serving in the war. Veteran nurses brought home valuable skills due to their experiences. This increased their professionalism and self esteem.
Because this was the world where Edith Cavell lived. Edith Cavell was an everyday nurse who had a strong sense of altruism and a compassion for people. Edith Cavell stands as a hero because she saved many soldiers, she had an incredibly positive influence as head matron at the hospital she worked at, and her compassion pushed her to never turn any wounded soldier away, whether they were an Allied soldier or a German soldier. Edith Cavell proved she was a hero when she successfully saved multiple Allied soldiers, despite the fact that she was in serious danger because of this. When she was alive, Edith worked as a nurse in a medical institute in Brussels during the war with the Germans.
Then, the ladies would either become a nurse, or stay home and take care of the children and cook. The only woman's job mentioned in Romeo and Juliet was a nurse. The nurse played a very important role in the play; however, she acts more like a family member to Juliet than an actual nurse. In modern times women can have any job they want to have, even if it's considered a man's job.
In honor of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing, a tradition/pledge that states the ethics and principles of the nursing profession is said at pinning ceremonies by nurses. Florence Nightingale has had a the most powerful influence on modern nursing through her implementation of sanitary health practices in hospitals starting in the 1850s. She also helped change the perspective of nursing as a lower/menial job. During her lifetime, she implemented practices that were not used before that would help patients from contracting diseases from wounds. She considered these never-before-implemented hygienic practices as practices that should have already been considered as common sense.
She told me all about how she absolutely loves her job and how she loves working with all the babies, but she concluded that by saying that it is a tough job to perform because “these babies have just come into this world and it seems unfair that sometimes they are taken out of it so quickly.” (Bryant) She told me how the hospital she works at does not have any services available to its workers regarding counseling and that if they need help dealing with a loss, they are expected to get their help outside of work and not deal with it there. When asked about whether or not hospitals should make it
I believe Abigail Adams thought citizens should govern. I believe this because Abigail Adams was and still is a hero and idle for many women in the United States. As the wife of John Adams, Abigail used her position to bring forth her own strong federalist and feminist views. Abigail Adams was born in 1744 at Weymouth, Massachusetts. During a time when women did not receive a formal education, her grandmother at home taught Abigail.
Originally, she wanted to become a nurse but knew her mother could not afford it. During the interview Tracy said, “I was a hothead during high school and I knew that the army could teach me the discipline that I needed.” Before entering the Military, she obtained a masters in Healthcare Education and minor in Adolescent Counseling/ Phycology. In July of 2012 she started her third and final deployment in Afghanistan Kuwait. Her role of Accountability and Strength Management simply meant that she accounted for all soldiers and units in the field. She stated that the only stressful aspect of her job occurred when soldiers went missing, one aspect of her duties including enforcing the rule of no soldier went home until their “buddy” was found.
