“Nothing could be worse than the fear that one had given up too soon, and left one unexpended effort that might have saved the world,” explained Jane Addams (“Jane Addams”). Jane Addams never gave up in her efforts to truly change the world. She was a powerful woman during a time when women in power was not accepted. She was a true activist for the cause of women’s rights and the reform of what is “acceptable” in America. Jane Addams once said: “I do not believe that women are better than men.
“The Legacy of Eleanor Roosevelt” lives up to its title by emphasizing the impact Eleanor had on shaping the role as first lady. The author backs up her claim by mentioning first ladies since Eleanor and demonstrating how and what they learned from Eleanor. She includes several examples such as Ladybird Johnson’s lobbying for environmental protection, Nancy Reagan’s anti-drug campaign, and Pat Nixon’s creation of White House tours for the blind and deaf. Unlike Burke who does not pay much mind to the shaping of the first lady, Winfield argues that Eleanor gave the first lady a public voice and cause aside from solely supporting her President
She was born to a lawyer that had no problem expressing favoritism toward his son and a mother who was sweet and taught her children to follow their dreams. According to USC Dornsife, Lois W. Banner “is a graduate of UCLA, with a Master's Degree in European History and a Ph.D. from Columbia University in American history, Lois Banner was a founder of the field of women's history in the 1970s.” I believe Banner was inspired to write about Elizabeth Cady Stanton because she has written many books on the background of women and gender in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

Despite all the education issues that might’ve been an obstacle for women. The antebellum era had a big and great effect on the whole world, however education wasn’t the only problem that the world faced during the antebellum era, many problems like slavery, hunger, discrimination and many more but in the end education is the only thing that might actually help in solving any of these problems.

The role of the First Lady is not defined in the Constitution, nor has its nature ever been consistent. Therefore there is no defined framework according to which the impact of the First Ladies can be evaluated. While many of the First Ladies either went unnoticed by the U.S. public, or carried out only fundamental duties, some of them left a significant mark on history. Among the most effective first ladies stands Eleanor Roosevelt. Through developing her own social and political causes, Eleanor Roosevelt raised the profile of the presidential spouse and effectively exceeded all other First Ladies in creating a proud legacy of her own.
Both first ladies helped their husband significantly. Sarah Polk used her education to write speeches and letters to people for her husband. This act definitely followed in the footsteps of Dolley. Just like Dolly, Mrs.Polk didn’t stay hidden and helped her husband on the important stuff. Abigail Filmer followed Dolley too.

Coretta Scott King has made herself known as a prominent activist and her legacy should be remembered and continued for generations and generations to
One major similarity between the movie and poem is the fact that Grendel’s mother isn’t given a name. She had a bigger role in the movie and was seen as more powerful and hard to defeat. In the poem she was seen as weak and uncomparable to man, "No female, no matter/ How fierce, could have come with a man's strength,/ Fought with the power and courage men fight with..." (400-403). The movie showed her as a strong women that was hard to beat. For example in the scene where Beowulf goes to Grendel’s mother’s home, she is portrayed as a strong beautiful women that is feared by man.
She had all the qualities of statesmanship in her. To be true we have not given women ample opportunities to develop their in born qualities. If given education, opportunities and facilities, a woman can become a Newton, or Einstein in our country. In our country she performs double role. Besides competing with men outside home in every field, she is still a good house wife an able mother and a dutiful wife.
Spartan women were known as the most independent, fearless, educated women in Greece. Just because they did not take part in military, that doesn’t mean that they didn’t hold any power. These women were given a formal education, but separated from boys. Not only were they educated, they took part in athletic competitions, which would include such sports as javelin-throwing and wrestling. Women could also sing and dance competitively.
