CHAPLIN TO CHURCHILL INTRODUCTION There was a time when women used to face many problems while living in the society. However, this trend has been changed but women have to follow various tactics in order to maintain harmony in the society and to stay at par with men. It took a lot for them to resolve the struggles of equal rights and to implement the same in real world without giving rise to any controversy. A few years ago women were never seen in influential roles due to many discriminatory factors but now the whole era has been changed and many women can be seen performing really well even better than men. This only has become possible due to the hardships faced by women in old times and how they fought for their rights
Feminism is not about making women gain strength, they are already strong, it is about changing the mindset of society. Women have the ability to achieve anything a man can, so why are women limited of their potential to succeed in life? The fifties was a time where the only ideal role for women in life was to become a housewife, because that is what the social norms were. With that case, there were many women that were dissatisfied and felt incomplete, since they had no voice and control over their life. During the 1950’s women faced patriarchal oppression which impacted their family life, job opportunities, and mental health.
However, as the male population decreased, they had no other choice than to employ women. Hundreds of thousands of females gained access to a wide range of jobs, such as working in engineering industries, offices, working as postal workers, and bus drivers. In addition, some women are taking on jobs in the war itself. Are women the ‘weaker sex’? Women’s contribution to World War I has made a positive impact on politicians and the general public.
One main of pre-war females' employment was as domestic servant for the upper and middle classes. The opportunities vacant by war sped up the fall in this activity as women found different sources of employment. Jobs that were better paid and more remunerating work in industry and other suddenly offered jobs. While the war opened many new alternatives for women and work, it did not usually lead to an increase in the earnings they made, which were already much lower than men. Rather than paying women during the war what they would have paid a man, companies would split responsibilities down into smaller parts, hiring a woman for each and giving them less for it.
The fact that African Americans made their own Gibson Girl proves how influential the Gibson Girl was and proves that women were affected by the "New Woman"; which leads to the conclusion that the Gibson Girl was a reality that women embraced. Gibson Girls have been questioned about whether they were imitated in the real world, but evidence shows that upper class women, at least, carried out the ideal. Part of being a Gibson Girl entailed a higher education, and middle-class women were seen as too delicate to pursue a degree and a strenuous job. "While productive labor for men meant engaging in bouts of physical exertion to compensate for the feminizing effects of brain work in
Women are not oppressed anymore. But what about gender inequality that women experience everyday? Or women living in developing countries who are still forced into child marriages or still can not get an eduaction wholly because they are a female. Let us not forget that feminism does not mean belittling men. Besides, they, too carry the weight of gender role assumptions which arise from expectations regarding specific qualities and behaviour.
The fact that women are able to take care of all that 's expected of them, just proves that women are much more stronger than men will ever be. Not saying that men aren 't capable of doing what 's required from women, but majority of boys and men aren 't taught to manage such tasks. In the essay "I Want a Wife" by Judy Brady, Brady writes about how wives are expected to handle everything in a marriage, whether it be to take care of the children or to please the husband. It seems as if the husband doesn 't have an important role in the marriage at all, other than making themselves independent and relying on their wife 's. It 's not fair that women are treated like slaves in a marriage, it 's as if they 're robots with no feelings.
She didn’t want to be stuck in the alley like the rest of the women there for the rest of her life but in fact wanted to travel and see new places and new faces. She compared herself to her girlfriends who worked as factory girls. And her decision on finding a husband was to be made based on her own goals and aims more than it was true love. She exercises power over all the men she attracts but refuses to abide to any. She wishes to become one and equal to any man.
He also was not focused purely on his writing, he was too overprotective and would not have stopped worrying long enough to finish his work. They all would have been miserable. Gender roles played an important part in marriage at one point, as time went on less people stopped valuing it. Women were expected to take care of the kids and household while men were expected to support their families financially. This did not work for every couple however.
Some men judge women for the simple fact of being a women, and not give a chance to see what they can do. Perhaps it is that a woman can be better than many men playing football (see appendix, figure 16), due to the society in which we live, which revolves around a stereotype that defines us just physically, many women are judged and identified for been a woman. Being a woman it does not mean we are inferior, being a woman does not mean that we have to dedicate ourselves to take care for our children and the home, because we already are advancing not only in society, but also as a person. It makes me feel proud to hear a man saying he want to spend as much time as he can with their children and not miss any moment of his life. ‘It is time that we all perceive gender on a spectrum not as two opposing sets of ideals.
