After reading the novel Revolutionary Mothers I have gained significant knowledge and a better grasp of the Revolutionary war. Carol Berkin 's purpose in writing this book was a simple one: Presenting a series of lenses of various raced women and how they affected and were effected by the Revolutionary War. She presents how women of every skin color was a major factor during the war and ultimately in aiding the formation of our nation. A major difference between this novel and what I have previously learned is that this novel magnifies contributions women have made for this country. Furthermore the textbooks that I read once in class greatly minimize those contributions and just give a broad overview of them.
“Eleanor began carving out a role as a new kind of First Lady, a role that would satisfy her own need to be independent and active in public and political life. ”(HistoryNet 1). Eleanor Roosevelt truly redefined the term first lady and used her position to do good for the people. As a child Eleanor was said to be more shy and awkward but as years went by she became more confident giving her the drive she had as first lady to make a change. After marrying Franklin D. Roosevelt, Eleanor was able to use her education to influence America.
The central idea in Eleanor Roosevelt: A Life of Discovery is about women’s rights. To begin, Mrs. Roosevelt, the First Lady and feminist, held press conferences exclusively for women reporters to help ensure their jobs during the Depression (Freedman 128). This was extremely helpful to women considering the fact that the Depression was the deepest and longest-lasting economic downtown in the history of the Western industrialized world. Eleanor Roosevelt was a hero to myriad hard-working women because she guaranteed them that they would not lose their job because they were just females; they are equal to everybody else, and if they deserve to have their job, they will keep their job. Next, Eleanor Roosevelt joined the Women’s Trade Union League
Ayn Rand was able to go through the story and gradually transform collectivism to individualism which was spectacular. She was able to make it so at the beginning, it was straight collectivism, slowly developing into individualism. I genuinely like at the end how individualism is the key aspect to the story; how “equality 7-2521” is able to discover himself and who he could be. He states “I wonder, for it is hard for me to conceive how men who knew the word "I," could give it up and not know what they had lost”(page 96?).
As a scholar, Marjorie Lee Browne left a great mark at North Carolina Central University.

She has even inspired major historical figures. For example, Martha Graham, President Calvin Coolidge, First Lady Grace Coolidge, Andrew Carnegie, Alexander Graham Bell, and Mark Twain.

During the times of the American Revolution, women gained a sense of self-identification, among other things. These times are important to women’s rights because this laid the foundation for the freedom and equality among sexes we come to know today. Women in the American Revolution gained new roles and discovered importance beyond the household duties of precious generations, by means of filling the gaps left by their husbands at war. Women participated in the American Revolution in ways that had not so much happened before in previous wars. One example is Deborah Champion being used to spread secret messages.
Pross. Before we begin, Mrs. Pross is a maid that works for Lucie and Doctor Manette and a minor character that keeps a strong identify to Lucie. Another example, is when Dickens wrote Mrs. Pross is “very much put out about my Ladybird” and proceeded to labor at their resident, meanwhile Lucie took care of her father. To give you some background information, “Ladybird” responds to Lucie Manette and showcases her loyalty. To comprehend this quote, it inclines that Mrs. Pross is only seen as a ardent and canny servant to Lucie as she is willing to do what she think is best for her, like mentioning her brother as the best future suitor to Lucie Manette.
Minnie had finally achieved what she had spent so much time fighting for but this accomplishment was great and it was a milestone for women in the state of teas but it wasn’t enough for Minnie she set her sights out for something bigger and better which was an amendment that would grant women throughout America the right to vote.

The United States House of Representatives passed the first version of the Nineteenth Amendment on January 10, 1918, but it failed in the United States Senate.
She brought the A line dress to popularity, the pillbox hat, and Chanel suit. Jackie Kennedy forever left her mark in the fashion world. “When a woman is glamorous, it often stops there.
