1920’s: Women’s Suffrage Alice Paul once said; “There will never be a new world order until woman are part of it.” In this quote the women’s right leader refers to how women are important to society. Society need women because of their capacity in a smartest way to take decisions.
Women today are able to receive the education they want and build their own career. However, they do not have the full equality due to men getting paid higher than women along with women getting paid higher than others based on their racial background. Will women ever get paid the same as men do? Or will women continue to be paid less than men?
These attitudes towards women are included in today's thoughts towards women too. Today women are paid less than men. Even if they have the same job they have a higher pay scale. Today as of 2015 women are allowed to be a pilot, electrician, surgeon, and a bus driver but they aren't as trusted as men! Not only is this sexist
Katie Bardaro, from Pay Scale Human Capital, once said “The real issue here is not the gender wage gap, but the jobs wage gap. People are filling positions according to gender, with higher-paid positions being filled by men and lower-paid positions being filled by women. That needs to change” In addition, men and women have differences on how they get paid. People think that men should get paid more because they think that they can do so much more, when women can do the same amount as a man can.
The Women’s Right Movement changed the lives of the American Women for the better, due to gaining the right to vote, access to higher education, and the opportunity to enter the workforce. Before the reform movements of Women’s right, the American women were discriminated in society, home life, education, and the workforce. Women in the 1800s could not only vote, but they also were forbidden to speak in public. They were voiceless and had no self-confidence, they dependent men, since they had little to no rights (Bonnie and Ruthsdotter).
Many young people often find themselves struggling to find their own identity and place in society. This search for self worth often leaves these young people feeling lonely and isolated because they are unsure of themselves. But for Holden, even though he wanted acceptance from people, he couldn’t find himself hanging with other people because one of which those things were when people went to watch movies. He thought that going to watch movies was very phony-like because he thought it wasn’t realistic. That also leads on to how he doesn’t like actors.
The Equal Pay Act of 1963 says that no employer should treat his or her workers differently because of their gender Everyone that has the same position should be paid the same (Portal-to-Portal Act of 1947). If not paying someone because of their gender is said to be illegal, then
America gained its independence in 1776 with the expectation that every American should have liberty and equality. However, American women did not have the right to vote until 1920, which was almost more than 140 years after the United States was established. Women could do little to protect themselves and promote their careers due to being treated unequally and inferior to men. During the 19th and the early 20th century, women were working hard and fighting for gender equality, so that more and more women could live a better life with basic civil rights in their hometowns. In reality, women’s equality was challenged by traditional conventions in the fields of biological difference in sexes, religion and gender roles, and different perspectives towards these conventions of different people made women’s civil rights controversial.
Women were considered to be were seen as politically incompetent and not able to think for themselves, thus excluding them from voting rights. As depicted in photos and illustrations from the Women’s Suffrage Movement, white women were primarily those fighting for rights, and white women did not care to include women of color in the battle. This is a result of institutional racism. The thought still existed that white people were superior to African Americans and white women feared that by including Black women, their claim would be renounced by politicians. Additionally, they asked only for voting rights and not equality because they feared that stance was too progressive and would also be denied.
Women who work full-time make only seventy-seven cents for every dollar a man who works full-time makes. This difference is known as the, ‘gender wage-gap.’ Due to this gap, full-time women employees are presented with less money and job opportunities. The stereotype behind all of this is that, ‘women aren’t worth as much as men.’ This stereotype is entirely outdated and insulting.
Women's rights during the 1920's progressed in a cultural and economical way. In the this time period 25% of women were unemployed. Women had office jobs and jobs as telephone operators. There wasn't anymore bias towards women who were married with families or black women.
The progressive era, a period in American history between the 1890s and 1920s, was a time of widespread social activism and political reform. This period saw the formation of labor unions and the implementation of antitrust laws. Most importantly, this time saw a rise in activists who fought for the extension of equal rights for women. Notable advocates at the time were Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Margaret Higgins Sanger; both lobbied on the liberty of married woman and the freedom womanhood. These women, among others, saw this era as an opportune time to demand their rights.
Americans in Western states have had womans rights for almost 20 years longer than those in the east. The United States was very progressive with Women's Rights, some parts more than others. Wyoming was the first state to pass the Women's Suffrage Act, this was in 1869 ( Imbornoni ) It was not until 1917 that any state in the east passed the bill, and the first was New York. Between those two times, 11 other states in the West had already passed the bill.
