As the war came to an end men witnessed the great contribution that women had during the war and because of this some men even changed their minds and supported the Woman Suffrage Movement. The movement reunited stronger than ever because after the Civil War they had support to allow them to fight for their rights with more ease. Women’s role in society changed because during the Civil War women took advantage that without the presence of men they would have to take their roles. When men returned from war it was very difficult to get the women out of what had been established in their
Women had to take on the men’s jobs because they left to go fight in the war. Women’s fashion choices had to change to accommodate their needs because of their new jobs. Their lifestyles changed as a result of the war. Women realized that the deserved more than what they were getting. They were doing the same jobs and they wanted equal pay and equal rights.
The years of the war was tiring and strenuous not only for the soldiers at war, but also for the women who were toughing it out on the home front. After clocking in long hours at the factory building machines and vehicles needed for the war, they still had to perform their household duties. But, many were happy and willing to do so, as working outside of their homes and helming jobs that they never did before was how women showed their patriotism for their country. Women had to maintain the industrial as well as the agricultural sectors in order to ensure that the American society could continue to function, and to help the allies in the war (“Brock, J., Dickey, J. W., Harker, R., & Lewis, C”, 2015). New opportunities were also made available for women in white-collar sectors.
This document written by Elizabeth Cady Stanton, demanded social status equality as well as legal rights, and the right to vote. The successes of the Women’s Suffrage Movement was that the 19th amendment granted women the right to vote. During this movement job opportunities were open to more women which also caused this movement to make working conditions better to work in and gave women a better paying wage. Women were also able to take birth control which worked on issues such as childbirth during the period. Although some failures during the movement were that men still did not see women as equal to them, and that they were incapable of owning property, this movement changed has changed the lives of women for the
On the contrary, World War II ended the economic downtrodden the United States was going through. The War put the United States economy back into motion as the unemployment rate dropped significantly as they put more Americans to work to help the war effort. We also see more women and African Americans helping in the actual war instead of just on the home front. Though, in both wars women helped out extensively we more so see them join the workforce in World War II. When it comes to World War I and World War II I do see some similarities and some differences between them.
The 20th century saw a major increase in women’s rights, getting a step nearer to gender equality. It is defined as the act of treating men and women equally, having the same access to right and opportunities no matter the gender. Although it is not a reality in our world, we do have advanced in comparison to the last century. At the begging of the 20th century women still were considered the weak gender. Their education consisted on learning practical skills such as sewing, cooking, and using the new domestic inventions of the era; unfortunately, this “formal training offered women little advantage in the struggle for stable work at a liveable wage” (1).
The second quotes demonstrates how desperately U.S citizens wanted the war to end, so they helped as much as possible. Lastly, the third quote is important because it represents how women had to start working jobs that usually men worked, since the men were all fighting the war. This gave women more opportunities in the
World War 1 had a huge impact on women´s lives, it was the spark that lead women have their rights and make a change in society’s perceptions towards women. The reason of this is because during World War 1 men had to go to the war and quit their jobs, this gave women the opportunity to take men’s jobs. More than a million women were able to join the workforce between 1914 and 1918, and they perform many different jobs. Some examples were: postal workers, police patrols, they learned how to produce parts of war machines, they had jobs in the area of engineering and chemical industries, and they were even soldiers. Some of this jobs were also dangerous.
Scott Fitzgerald portrayed new woman in a more modern and realistic way. After World War I, the role of women as housewives and mothers changed. They had to work and to earn their own money which provides an independent life to them. They also started to vote and so, they were accepted as equal members of society. However, this power changed women’s behaviors totally.
Around the world the pay gap has not budged in any direction but up. The pay gap is constantly becoming a bigger problem for women across the world. In the USA more data has been collected and informs the world about problem of pay discrimination. In the USA studies show that companies go further into looking at your race as well as your gender when deciding you pay. However women around the world are lucky to have organizations like AAUW and OECD that are looking to find ways to solve the many discriminative problems women face everyday, including the pay
Women’s involvement in the military was a massive contribution during the war, because it was the first time that women were allowed to join the military forces in roles besides nursing. But women in factories played an even bigger role than women who helped served in the war. During WWII, women served in the military; they worked for the government, entered or reentered the workforce, and contributed to the war as volunteers in their societies. For the first time women were working and performing jobs that were for men.
The women of the early 20th century showed that they have the ability to be productive in the work place and fight for the greater good of the United States of America. In modern times women have started joining combat roles in the military and increasing in demographical size in the military. This has shown that women are striving to be more equal to men in all aspects of modern life. By showing they can fight in wars and hold their own against our nations enemies they can and will be seen as equals. The public celebration of women’s history in the United States began in 1978.
Often facing excessive and exhausting work habits the women faced long days; but ultimately proved that they wanted to aid in the war as much as they possibly could. Though unpaid, these women left their comfort zones and redefined the social boundaries society had previously set. The volunteers that participated in the rallies of WVR in January 1915 consisted of 120 women; however, the organization showed an immediate rise in volunteers just two months later as 500 women marched through the streets of Birmingham . The immediate rise showed that women felt as if they had an obligation and a right to voice their concern, and through participating in these rallies they participated in war efforts. Though many organizations supported the war, a clear split existed on exactly how
Document A Businesses went from low income friendly to high-income friendly. Low-income housing decreased in Woodward from 1995-2012 -Social housing increased from 1995 to 2012 It would have been better to live in Woodward in 1995 because the properties are low income friendly and more people have the opportunity to live there. Many people in Woodward in 1995 would be put in the stereotype that low-income people are committing crimes Gentrification is not okay because many people in the world have issues with finances.

However, during and after the war low class and average citizens were more relevant, and were seen as more prominent figures in the economic aspect of their government. Even the distribution of wealthy, moderately wealthy, and moderate citizens reached nearly uniformly balanced percentages in states such as Virginia, Maryland, and South Carolina (Doc 4). Women also for the first time worked together to supply the American army with the necessary tools and clothing needed at the time. This brought many women into the workforce, which had previously never been presented the opportunity or never seen the necessity of working. Children also were subject to harsh reality when they were rallied to fight in the American army against the English forces.
