wearing the same clothes every single day. It is obvious to compare them to the lower classes of the Elizabethan men. But high school is just one place to observe this, another would be walking down the streets of Hollywood. There, you are able to find people in every class of society. You can see the very rich and wealthy all the way down to the lowest of classes.
When you think about women’s rights activists and women involved in the anti-slavery movement in the 19th century, you usually think about Susan B. Anthony, but in reality, there was another woman that was also greatly involved. Her name was Lucy Stone. She was most famous for being the first woman from Massachusetts to earn a bachelor's degree, for being elected president of the State Woman's Suffrage Association of New Jersey, for helping found the American Equal Rights Association, and for being the first woman in the United States to keep her own surname after marriage. One of her sister-in-laws, Elizabeth Blackwell, was the first woman to have a medical degree. Her other sister-in-law, Antoinette Brown Blackwell, was the first woman to
“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world”- Harriet Tubman. Harriet Tubman was born in 1822 in Dorchester County in the Eastern Shores of Maryland. Tubman was treated harshly throughout her childhood. She began working as a slave since she was only five years old and since her plantation owner was poor, he had to send her to other owners to work. Many of which disliked Tubman, so they almost always had to send her back and thus she got constant beatings from plantation owners. (Source a) Despite being born into slavery, Harriet Tubman was able to overcome obstacles and accomplish many important feats in her lifetime. Accomplishments
Queen Elizabeth, also known as the virgin queen, was the greatest ruler of England from 1558 to 1603. She was the daughter of Henry VII and the sister of the famous “Bloody” Mary as she got taken off the throne for killing protestants, creating the place of Queen Elizabeth. Queen Elizabeth faced a lot of problems including religious problems, relative problems, image problems and a major problem is that she was a woman and not a man so she didn’t have much training to be a queen. Elizabeth, I was born at Greenwich Palace on September 7, 1533. She was the daughter of King Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn, the second of his six wives. Before Elizabeth reached her third birthday her mother was beheaded on charges of adultery.
Harriet Tubman is a larger than life icon and an American hero. Harriet was born into a family of eleven children who were born into slavery. Benjamin Ross and Harriet Greene were her parents, and lived on a plantation in Dorchester County, Maryland. Harriet was put to work by the age of five, and served as a maid and children’s nurse. At the age of six Araminta was taken from her parents to live with James Cook, whose wife was a weaver, to learn the skills of weaving. James Cook would order her to guard his muskrat traps, which compelled her to walk through the water. At the age of 12 she became a field hand. Because Harriet Tubman wanted freedom, she fought constantly to achieve it. Harriet went from slave to inspiration in a matter of years.
Queen Elizabeth I ruled England during a turbulent time in its history. She was beset on all sides by those who wished to take her throne for themselves, whether it be through marriage or outright treason. With these threats, as well as the unstable political atmosphere across much of Europe, Elizabeth I could not afford to be seen as weak. This is why she distanced herself from the stereotypes of women at the time. She painted herself as a masculine figure to give herself an aura of strength that would deter potential usurpers.
While ruled by a queen, Elizabethan Society was not one of legitimate liberation for women. Instead, women were forced to conform to the societal standards set forth by the patriarchal expectations of their peers. Challenging these expectations could bring debasement to those involved, making it easier for men to enforce their rule over women. Tradition dictated that marrying and having children was not only an expectation for women, but almost law. With these oppressive standards, it would be completely out of the question to think that anyone could confidently break free from the patriarchy. A play written by a prominent figure of the time, William Shakespeare, shows what would happen to someone who doesn’t conform to these “traditions”.
What do you think of when you first hear the word slavery? Most think of African Americans being mistreated. Slavery was very harsh on African Americans, but some slaves found their way around it. Some good examples of the life of a slave would be Jim, in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Frederick Douglass, in “Narrative of Frederick Douglass”, and Harriet Tubman, in The Most Remarkable Woman of This Age. All three of them give great examples of how different slaves lives were.
She was born in Buffalo, New York on December 5, 1905. Her birth name was Elizabeth Yates. Her parents names were Harry Yates, and Mary Duffy Yates. She is the second youngest of 7 children. Her brother’s names are Harry Jr., Bobby, and Dick. Her sister’s names are Jinny and Teresa. Her family spoke English and French. The president when she was growing up was Theodore Roosevelt. Another political leader was Theodore M. Berry. This country is connected to Elizabeth because she grew up in a small town. Her parents were pretty wealthy, she was raised well with her other siblings. Her sister and one of the women that worked for her family encouraged Elizabeth to write in her journal and that made Elizabeth want to become an author. Elizabeth is biography worthy because she has to go through alot, he family survived a war, she was able to write all her feelings down in her journal and be able to share all her accomplishments with everyone. She was able to write many books all because she was encouraged as a child

England the birthday place of many talented artist, queens, and kings like Shakespeare, Queen Elizabeth 1, and King Henry Vll. Who wants to find out who is the longest ruling Queen of England is? Yeah, you heard me, a queen and not a king. Queen Elizabeth ruled England for 44 years! She's important in history because she changed the course of history by killing her cousin, which by the way a friend of mine in the same history class as me is doing......@Brenna Riley Mayberry. Anyways if Queen Elizabeth wasn't born during that time in the 1500s, then Mary Queen Of Scots would still be alive during the 1500s.
She was dubbed "the First Lady of civil rights" and "the mother of the freedom movement."
“I would rather be a beggar and single, than a Queen and married.” Elizabeth was born on September 7, 1533 in Greenwich, England. She was the last heir of the Tudor Dynasty. In this essay, I will be talking about how Queen Elizabeth I was one of the greatest Queens in history and, possibly, the greatest Queen of the Renaissance time period. When Elizabeth was a child, she was often forgotten; first, because she was a girl, and second because she was the youngest girl in the family. She had a rough and dark childhood because of this and many other things; however, Elizabeth overcame the dark parts of her childhood and accomplished many great feats while she was Queen. She defended England from all attacks that came her way. She also defeated
Women have played an important role throughout history but haven’t really been credited as much as they really should have been. Although women haven’t usually been in a position of power (because they were not allowed to be in a that position), they have still done a lot to contribute in crucial ways. For example Empress Theodora of the Byzantine empire though 527 and 548 A.D, Queen Elizabeth I of the queen of England and Ireland from 1558 to 1603.
Her father, whom she greatly looked up to, died when she was 17 years old (Pg. 28). She became more independent and secluded after his death in 1838. When she was working as a teacher in Kentucky, she had to share a room with three other women, as there were no special room for teachers (Pg. 33). During this time, she kept to herself and often went on walks alone in the woods (Pg. 33). While in college and on internships, she generally stayed in her room, when not in class or working, to be alone to study, and she did not interact very often with other residents or students, so she was not distracted. In one instance, a doctor she looked up to, Dr. Corydon Le Ford, said to her, “I wonder if politics is a matter for women?” when Elizabeth stood on the “Free Soil” side in a vote, every man on that side rioted for Elizabeth, while she just smiled and left, not bothering to fight (Pg. 118-119). Once, amongst talking to herself, Elizabeth said, “I can not go on living alone!” and her sister heard so asked her if she had meant marriage. Elizabeth insisted no because one career is enough to begin with (Pg. 179). Elizabeth stayed a strong and independent woman throughout her
