“...I see women contending’ for their rights…” (Truth 254). She noticed women trying incredibly hard to gain their rights. Women wanted to be viewed as equals and felt they were no different than men. Truth was successful in her speeches because it gave women to power to speak up and push for their right to vote. If she never advocated for these women, society today may be very different.
Obviously, as history has now demonstrated, exactly the opposite is true. The female gender has been proven to be more capable than males in multiple ways. Statistics show that women have longer attention spans, a greater capacity for noting detail, larger memories, and are far better at multi-tasking. In addition, they are more empathetic and able to see other’s points of view. All of these factors would not only cause them to be equal to male voters, but arguably the favorable sex regarding this topic.
Empowerment requires the full interest of individuals in the formulation, implementation, and assessment of decisions regarding the working and the prosperity of society. Far too long women have endured discrimination throughout the world. Obstacles to women’s equality with men in all backgrounds did not vanish even there are many constitutional and legal provisions were made for women to made them strong and equal. Women stayed neglected in the standard of the predominant procedure of development; just minor gains were accomplished.
It is evident that equality and equity between genders, males and females, has had its struggles. This struggle to promote fairness has been expressed through various mouvements such as from the suffragettes emerging in the late 20th and early 21st century, and the recent He for She movement to bring both genders to work together as one. Despite these efforts, in the hockey world, male domination inhibits female athletic success to reach such high level. This is displayed through history, funds and media. Earlier times imposed that women work less on their athleticism.
Jane Addams is often refered to as a social and political pioneer. She seperated herself from what society belived a women should do and created many radical changes for that time period. Many of her fellow friends, characterized as going crazy and too hopeful. But in the years later to come, Jane Addams would redefine what a women can and should do. She once said, “Old-fashioned ways which no longer apply to changed conditions are a snare in which the feet of women have always become readily entangled” (JaneAddams).
This is why I choose to write about Susan B. Anthony, because women leaders have a different stance in every aspect of legal matters whether It be for women’s rights or politics. Susan B. Anthony, behind every women leader there is always a path to make sure women are receiving the correct treatment and care as men do. Which is something that women leaders tend to fight for. They work hard to make sure women received the rights that women rightfully deserve. Hence this, Anthony’s traits or characteristics made a major impact on the lives of many people.
Women that were strong leaders of the past like Queen Hatshepsut of Egypt, Joan of Arc, and Sappho had to fight for their positions as leaders in society so they could inspire future women. For Queen Hatshepsut fighting for a leadership position meant reversing what Egyptians believed women could do politically and religiously. While for Joan of Arc it was disproving derogatory opinions on how much power women could hold over a military. Sappho was such a great poet that her work spread around the Mediterranean, but due to objectionable themes in her stories they were soon banned and burned which was fully because she was the only female poet to use licentious content in the antiquity period. Female leaders who held staple positions in society during their times like Joan of Arc, Hatshepsut, and Sappho have influenced women throughout the ages and today to incorporate what they accomplished
Sanders has come in contact with many women throughout his life, through his observations of how women have prospered in society he believes that women feel such pressure to be everything, do everything. It’s as if they’re trying to overcome a million years’ worth of evolution in one lifetime. (lines 15-18) He knows that some women would disagree with his views on roles like his friend Anneke, she feels that men are the ones who have it harder; being discredited for the things they have
Woman have been fighting for equality for a long time. We are still fighting to today to close the wage gap between men and women.

The women of the civil rights movement are the strongest individuals who helped fight back against
In present day canada, many foreigners come from far and wide, whilst leaving their families behind in hopes of a better life for them and their children to come. Believing Canada is a land of opportunity, however was Canada always considered “the highway to a better life”?In the late 18 hundreds, Canada did not provide equal opportunities for all.People of different races, genders, and classes faced mass extents of discrimination. People with money were people with power, in repercussion for the industrialization of the late 18 century and the invention of the steam engine, the poor got poorer and and the rich richer, whilst creating a considerable wage gap. Finally the Canadian government treated people that were not of their ideal image
However, a decade later, the Civil Rights movement had led women to believe that they should have the same rights as men. They began to demand that their abilities to perform tasks are similar even better than men’s. Their work was to be recognized in society. And in fact, as several decades past by, women were actually leaders of companies and small businesses. Many individuals still believe that women are not as intelligent as men, these beliefs still prove that society has its stereotypes that can not be let
I’ve been called intimidating, an over-achiever, a feminist, etc. When I read this book about Dona Gracia it made me feel slightly better about myself. It made me reminded that a woman can be an overachiever; a woman can be “intimidating” which simply means that they are strong; a woman can fight for their rights and be the boss. I think this whole book was something significant that impressed me and is important. This woman was born into a time where women were not at all equal with men.
