May fourth Feminism movement was the first feminist movement in china. This movement constituted of mostly males who were activists and reformers that were enthused with the idea of women liberation. They wanted to bring change to Chinese society and make China a stronger nation. Hence, they concluded that the source of China’s weakness and problems lie in the Chinese family structure. These women were illiterate and had bound feet which prevented them from reproducing or even raise their family, .
Women in the Song Dynasty This part will evoke women’s life and rights in the Northern Song Dynasty. The Song Dynasty is often seen as the start of the decline of women status in the Chinese society: a revival of Confucianism led women political role to be reduced, as well as their public appearance compared to Tang Dynasty. The practice of foot binding also started in the Song Dynasty. However, women also enjoyed new and reinforced property rights, and social mobility and political influence were not completely impossible to achieve. Indeed, there are several examples of some lower class women managing to get considerable power by providing pleasure to the higher spheres of the Imperial Court.
Elisabeth the first probably wrote this speech because she knew that some of her men had no faith in her and in their chances at winning against the Spanish armada. The queen tries to abridge a link between her and her troops, and tries to show them that she worth of their trust and will eventually reward them for defending her. thus it can be deducted that if it wasn’t for the Queen’s speech the battle might have turned out to be very different and the Spanish might have win. Therefore Elisabeth was able to use Ethos, Logos, and Pathos to make a well rouded and very convincing speech for her
If you get familiar with them, they lose their humility; if you are distant, they resent it.”(In Chinese子曰：“唯女子与小人难养也。近之则不逊，远之则怨。”)I think when this sentence is translated into English cannot completely express its meaning ,but it means that man are more honorable than woman and woman are looked down on. At that time, women’s desires are oppressed and always follow their husband even if they are not willing to .I don’t agree with this value no matter it is adopted in the past or in nowadays think man and woman are equal, they should have the same rights and share the same resources, and this help build the harmony and stable
Jane is someone who is independent and headstrong and cannot think as someone to be controlled. Women in the Victorian era were not meant to reveal their own opinions, but to grasp the opinions of their husbands instead. Mr. Rochester motivates Jane to share her thoughts with him, but only when they’re alone. Finally, Jane marries Mr. Rochester because now they are of equal social rank as in the Victorian era it was not a social norm for men to marry women that were not of their class. That became a place where the rich became richer, and the poor stayed where they
Using these words, the authors draw the line of distinction between the roles of “the saint” and “the whore” (200). Secondly, independent women in fairy tales were often associated with the concept of evil because they menaced the patriarchal order itself (203). No longer relying on men for emotional or economic support, these women were harder to control (203). However, back in the days when these tales were crafted, “most women had not been by tradition so fortunate as to enjoy the economic independence that would enable them to run their lives as wished” (203). As a result, their roles in society were entirely defined by their relationships with men (207).
The Second Great Awakening affected society in a both harsh way and also positive way. It affected the society in a positive way because of all the movements that started. An example of one of the movements can be Women’s Movement which helped women basically get more rights in terms of them living their own life. The women did this because they wanted to be equal with the men since men could own property and vote but on the other hand there were the women who couldn 't do any of those tasks. There was also the Temperance Movement which helped drunks drink less alcohol since the movement lessened the amount of alcohol available in the U.S.
In the movie, Mulan, by Tony Bancroft and Barry Cook, they use the character, Mulan, to represent feminism and gender roles of women, such as bringing honor to their family through marriage, and how women are deemed to be “inferior” in the eyes of men, for example, when women are not able to participate in war, allowing Mulan to act and fight for what she believes is to be right. Although having a feeling of superiority over women, men tend to act more based on pride and honor than what they believe is to be just, thus making them seem unruly and disgusting. During the ancient Chinese Dynasty, many of the women were looked down upon, making the men have a feeling of superiority over them. Men are usually portrayed to uphold the family honor
Although, in her case, there was a struggle to gain and maintain supreme power. Her leadership resulted in effects such as the social class in Chinese society and relation to state support for Buddhism. Unlike most women, Wu Zetian was seen as ruthless and power hungry. Which shows that women who are able to abandon their “womanly” traits are the ones who are able to gain and maintain the most power. She seems to follow a similar route of other women in power who have all started out as concubines or consorts to

The British population had split opinions on their first female Prime Minister. Thatcher was a polarizing leader, where some hated her and others loved her. On one side, she was a strong and firm ruler who bettered the British economy. On the other, there were high taxes and unemployment. Thatcher’s war against the unions was very unpopular among the union members, but her followers claim the unions had too much power and that Thatcher was right to defeat them.
As Susan Mathis said, “The patriotic appeal had two aspects… ‘do your part’... ‘a soldier may die if you don’t do your part’...” (Mathis). As a way to boost morale, guilt was another essential aspect into influencing Americans to want to win the war. The American government subtly blackmailed women into doing what was necessary for a victory without appearing
