Because at the time women were the ones who fought for alcohol restraint. Because the roles of women were changing and they started getting more educated and independent, they wanted to have political equality. Women wanted to have their say in political matters such as elections and seats in the parliament, so it was no longer seen as a ‘Man's world’. This protest movement was also important to women living at the time because it was a way to stop discrimination between the genders. This is because some women felt as if they were treated and discriminated against like the Jewish people.
What does it mean to be politically correct? Political correctness, often shortened to PC, is defined as agreeing with the idea that people should be careful not to use language or behave in a way that could offend a particular group of people. However, through generations of usage by the American government and the nation as a whole, it is obvious that this type of censorship is only a curtain for people to hide behind their real thoughts on “offensive” matters, such as sexuality and race. Many people argue that political correctness is a destructive force, one built on the foundational belief that by avoiding certain topics, the offensiveness of them will disappear entirely. It is because we as a nation are fearful of what we say, write, think, and especially of using the wrong words that may be denounced as insensitive, racist, sexist, or homophobic, that we give political correctness an unintentional, threatening power.
Communication is extraordinarily vital for women’s development and mass media play vital role. it's to be distinguished that growth of women’s education and their entry into this business through employment has contributed to the expansion of media. If Media may be a strong agent of change, it may be an equally powerful agent of oppression. it's while not a doubt a dominant medium for support of gender equality and therefore the standing of women. nevertheless the media may reinforce stereotypical pictures of women and their roles in society.
Jacksonian Democrats viewed themselves as the “guardians” of the United States Constitution thought that reasoning is flawed. Afterall, actions do speak louder than words and although these Jacksonian “Democrats” had sometimes maintained their intentions, there were also multiple instances when they actually contradicted these original objectives. All things considered, Jacksonian Democrats were not the “guardians” of the Constitution but rather the epitome of an utmost failure to uphold their beliefs. These reasons include but are not limited to the support of (1) the development of a “herrenvolk democracy”, a system where minorities were disenfranchised, (2) the veto of rechartering the National bank—leading to disastrous consequences (3), and the lack of political freedom through media censorship. The darker unseen side of Jacksonian Democracy was its pro-south and pro-slavery bias, showing favoritism towards southern
Democracy is the concept of freedom and respect of one 's rights based on the idea that monarchies or didctatorships have no more place within societies of the XXI siecle. In fact, people living within a community do not need superior authority to respect and beheive according the social norms. Participative democracy in my own opinion would be the key or the expression of a the best set of democratic institutions The European continent where democracy was born in the twentieth century has undergone multiple totalitarianism. Democratic fields is therefore limited to the implementation of a set of safeguards preventing the arrival in power of leaders against the will of the majority. But the democratic idea can not be satisfied and must find
The progressive era was a historical movement in time where extensive social activism and political reform were taking place all across America. If would be inadequate to say that one class of women, either the working class or the middle class, were affected more or less than the other by this era. They were both handing different forms of change and reform, but all of equal value. The working class women were piloting research, implementing reformation programs, attempting to increase wages, improve working conditions, and lobbying legislation to make positive changes. Amongst the working class women were many notable women that changed history.
Liberal feminism argues that women should be included in politics because to exclude them weakens the legitimacy of democracy. Democracies must fulfill the promise of full political equality for all citizens, and therefore women, minorities, and any other under-represented group must have the opportunity to participate in politics. Liberal feminism argues that the status of women is a measure of the progress and civilization of any given society. Proponents such as Elizabeth Cady Stanton (1815-1902) claimed that women’s participation in public life was a key to advancing the status of women. Women are capable of intellectual development and moral progress.
The presidency of the United States of America has been an evolving office since the term of our first president, George Washington. This evolution has occurred because of the changing times and the evolution of society itself, but also because of the actions of the men who have become president. Starting in the 20th century, most have referred to the presidency as the modern presidency due to changes in both a president 's power and the way that the office is viewed. As the office of the president has evolved so has who can become president evolved. Yet, even today, there are certain individuals who because of their gender or race have yet to hold the office of the presidency.
Congressional Digest points out the fact that voters today know more about the candidates than they did 200 years ago (19). “Is it possible that this once-brilliant device has become a constitutional accident waiting to happen” (Congressional Digest 25). “The Electoral College has been said to be ‘archaic,’ ‘too complex,’ and even ‘dangerous,’ but the principle complaint has been that it is ‘undemocratic’” (Klinker, McClellan 1). The Electoral College violates the principle of one-person, one-vote (Congressional Digest 17). Klinker states that Wyoming’s 619,500 residents make up only .18 percent of the U.S. population, yet recieve three three electoral votes which is .56 percent of the electoral votes, while Texas has a population of 20,044,141 residents that make up 7.35 percent of the U.S. population, but Texas’ 32 electoral votes make up slightly less than 6 percent of the electoral votes, giving one voter in Wyoming nearly as much power as four voters in Texas (1).
This is because by stepping into social reforms women were bypassing the gender barrier set up by the Seneca Falls Convention. Women altered the inferior mindset they had lived with for the larger part of their lives. Currently women in the United States have what is believed to be equality. There is a woman running for president!! Without the tenacity and will of 19th century women's rights reformers, america could very well still view women as inferior.
After presenting his arguments and providing the three examples, Mauss attempts to show the relationship between the concept of gift economy and the modern day social democracy in his conclusion. He tries to connect his theory on gift exchanging to the contemporary situations of the states. However, he fails to do so. This is because Mauss completely ignores the characteristics of the modern states, especially the coercive power that they have. Unlike individuals, states have the power to make laws and to punish its citizens, which make the exchange non-obligatory.
