This article is not as simple to discuss as the previous. Taylor talks about misogyny, feminism, anti-feminism, sexual animosity, social and woman rights. Not only does Taylor talk about the heroine of feminism herself, Mary Wollstonecraft, but also talks about Susan Gubar who despised everything that Mary Wollstonecraft was. In this article, Taylor gives many different looks at feminism and misogyny. I think that this is a really important article to attribute in my report.
Goldenberg (Goldenberg 1979). As was discussed above, many feminist have build their rationale on arguing for the society’s need to move away from religion in order to provide women with tools of emancipation and build gender equal society. One of such tools is secularism as a concept of liberation of the state’s political and social decisions from religious influence, or simply the separation of Church and State. The secular arguments in feminism were developing slowly in the religious era and became louder and prominent only by the end of the 18th century. French feminist and revolutionary Olympre De Gouge famous for her Declaration of the Rights of Woman and the Female Citizen (1791), even if often speaking about God, was a strong campaigner against religious marriage which she deemed "love and trust's grave”.
Given the response to her article, Schlafly established STOP ERA, began publishing a regular monthly newsletter called the Phyllis Schlafly Report, and founded and worked in conjunction with the Eagle Forum (1975). This organization was a conservative group dedicated to campaigning against radical feminist perspectives, upholding traditional gender roles in American society, preserving the traditional structure of American families, and supporting the woman 's role as a homemaker. The STOP ERA campaign appealed to conservatives and religious groups, particularly in southern states, and was the primary organization dedicated to convincing the American public and politicians to halt passage of the ERA. In particular, STOP ERA utilized grass roots and community organizations at the local level to shift state public opinions rather than engaging in a direct national political dialogue to
One of the most well-known entertainers of the world, Beyoncé, is part of the best singers in the music industry. She is, somehow, considered to be a great example of the Feminist movements for showing off the talents of the femininity. The Feminist Movement started in the 1840’s, but it didn’t really expand until the 1960’s after Betty Friedan’s book The Feminine Mystique was published. In that book, Betty encourages women to change the way society view them as the ideal employment for them is to stay at home mom and wife voice their opinions and fight for equality of the sexes. Feminism, in fact, is groups that fight for women’s right and equality between the sexes.

Amelia Earhart Feminism is a huge problem in the world that still is existent to this day. Whether it’s from insulting someone and calling them a girl or comparing one’s skills at something to a girl’s skill at that thing. Many people have taken a stand against this problem. Because of those people it isn’t as bad as it was back in the 18 – 1900s. Amelia Earhart is a perfect example of someone who has taken a stand against feminism.
Some of the community around her didn’t support her feminist beliefs and her desire to advocate for women, and she also received criticism by some of the feminist community, including the Redstockings, for her glamorous image and her association with the CIA-backed Independent Research Service (History.com Staff). Gloria kept fighting, however, and continued to do amazing things despite the criticism she faced on more than a few fronts. Steinem helped found the Women’s Action Alliance, a first-of-its-kind national information center that specializes in non-biased (i.e. nonsexist, multiracial) children’s education. This is so incredibly important as education, equality and feminism are all issues I hold close to my heart.
Women in England during the 1800s faced restrictions to participate in movements and were limited in their political speaking and voting capabilities. Although many women accepted their fate, some fought for a different social role. (“The Women 's Rights Movement”) Women such Mary Wollstonecraft, Jane Austen, and Mary Shelley inspired a new way of radical thinking towards human rights, specifically the rights of women (Surgis). Thanks to these inspiring individuals, there was a change in women’s attitude regarding their options to become part of the work force, gain an education, and have equal rights in marriage (Surgis). Educating women was the primary focus for many modern feminists, explaining that if women were educated the opportunities
Before the New Deal Era, there was not much to be heard about first ladies, or what they did to improve the country. But with Eleanor, she was truly a monumental example, and became the model of first ladies today. The book states, “she often urged the president to take stands on controversial issues” (The Americans). This, in my opinion is an understatement to what she truly did. She showed interest, in children’s welfare, women’s and minorities rights, and the housing reform, which at the time posed to be very pressing and controversial matters.
Many female characters in stories are realistic to females in the real world. For example, Susan Glaspell’s story called Trifles has female characters that resemble the females living in Glaspell’s society. The female characters in the story are wives to the investigators for the case. As a matter of fact, the Women’s Rights Movement (WRM) was also taking place during Glaspell’s society. “This movement was far from unified, however; strife and division often arose as activists faced the difficulties of meeting the diverse needs and priorities of the women of America” (Andreas et al.
