This had some very interesting, knowledgable parts, and filled in some understatements of the feminist movement's history, also how much that I didn't really know about how much motherhood is related to feminism not only over the past decades but, how it still is and will continue to be in the future. It talks much about these two topics relations and is for both all audiences that hasn't thought much about them or how important they really are. It's really accessible, short, and engaging. Also, was a great overview of the evolvements over the course of U.S. history. I take with me knowledge of these topics I didn't know before, also knowledge I now have of these important issues in the world
Elizabeth Cady Stanton Book Critique “Since progress was inevitable and since a dive spark nestled within each human consciousness, nothing more was necessary to correct apparent social disorders than to remove the outmoded obstacles inherited from the past.”(Banner ix) The book Elizabeth Cady Stanton: A Radical for Woman’s Rights, written by Lois W. Banner, the author was focusing on the impact Cady Stanton made on the movement for women’s suffrage, as well as the intimate influence she received from her family while growing up. This book could also be seen as a biography, but besides jus focusing on her life, Banner focused on Cady Stanton’s achievement, and how history began to change. Cady Stanton played a very important role on women’s rights and suffrage movement. Elizabeth Cady Stanton was a very well-known female character, as well as the first feminist because her main concerns were typical
Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton both are leading women’s rights activists during their time; their work influenced the American Peoples’ view on women. They founded one of the earliest pro-women’s rights movements in the country, which was essential in spreading feminism throughout America. Their lifelong battle against inequality to combat slavery and promote feminism through literary works like; 'The Revolution' and the Declaration of Sentiments speeches, succeeded after their death when women got the right to vote. Their efforts in promoting women’s rights to the American people would later be a part of their many foundations such as; National American Women Suffrage Association, and the American Equal Rights
Ethical Perspective The book No Good Deed brings up many ethical issues that can be discussed. In the world of nursing there are specific issues that will be seen more than others. The ethical issue of nurses providing care that they feel is necessary for their patient yet others do not feel it is necessary is often an issue. Beneficence plays a large role because where is the fine line of doing good become doing harm? Kim talks about how comfort care measures were to be done for Rose.
Malala employs pathos so that the reader could feel where she is coming from. As a result, she wants the reader to know that education for girls is a very imperative thing. By using vigorous pathos, she gets the reader to fathom that a girl’s education is important and meaningful to them. In the bibliography “I Am Malala” by Malala Yousafzai, the author mentions “Then, when she said I would have to leave my school books behind, I nearly cried, too. I loved school, and all I cared about were my books”.
Elaine Showalter writes, "The Awakening belongs to a historical movement in American women's writing, and Chopin could not have written without legacy of domestic fiction to work against..." (The Awakening, Norton Critical Edition, 311) As Chopin's popularity spread like wildfire, her novel also served as ammunition in the fight to bring insight and awareness to women's issues. The novel in this particular era could be read as an inspiration, a starting point to break free from patriarchy and to look at everything as art. "The Awakening's most radical awareness is that Edna inhabits a world of limited linguistic possibilities, of limited possibilities for interpreting, and re-organizing her feelings, and therefore of limited possibilities for action." (The Awakening, Norton Critical Edition,
Because of the books’ powerful female characters, calls for revolution of women were widespread and on the rise. The Woman Warrior and A Doll’s House compare because their authors made female characters throughout both works challenge the norms of society through feminism, identity, and sexism. First and foremost, Ibsen tackles women 's rights as a matter of importance in A Doll’s House, but it was not intentional. He successfully created the dramatic argument that continues to this day; that of feminism. “Ibsen’s work and its uses demonstrate the full range of lived experience that defined modern rebellion and it reminds us that theatre and drama played a central role in making that rebellion visible and available to a wide
She further on instills the ideas of how feminism should be intersectional for all groups and not just for a select few. She explains the cruciality of transnational feminism, where it is dependent upon building solidarity across the divisions among women. Overall, Mohanty believes in illuminating the historical aspects of nations and how they led to the social construction of women. Mohanty’s text was exceedingly interesting to read since it expanded my perceptions

With her Smith College education, graduating summa cum laude (Parry, 2010), and her passion for journalism, Friedan began to feel something was missing in a life of marriage and motherhood. Moreover, it was the questionnaire from her 1957 Smith College reunion, that revealed some unsettling results; that women were dissatisfied with giving up work, and education for motherhood (Parry, 2010) that set her determination to set a new standard for women, hence, The Feminine Mystique. With her book, she inspired thousands of women to assess themselves in a different light. Thanks to Friedan, women now believed they had a choice and the power to make choices, to be their own person, to be joyful, to learn, to work, be taken seriously, and no longer wear a false mask. And they could still be a wife, friend, lover, and mother.
