The campaign is an important part in the race to the White House, and the involvement of the first lady is a huge part of it. Today, the first lady has to campaign nearly as extensively as her husband, for the position (Diller and Robertson 145). The first lady is more than the wife to the President. She is a woman of poise, elegance and influence stemming from the creation of her own image - seen through the eyes of the American
Despite being verbally and physically attacked by those in opposition of women’s right to vote, the women marched on, demonstrating the lengths they will go to earn their rights. The women’s march forced the woman suffrage movement to be acknowledged and taken seriously by Americans, specifically Congress. The source provided proved most useful in gaining the information discussed because it contained the most information of the event and provided multiple sources as
All these women came from different social, economic and socio-political background. Harriet Taylor Mill was given the opportunity to lay the foundation for feminism, while hiding under her husband’s wing, she was a relatively middle to high class individual who focused on issues that women like her faced. She believed that equality was simply based on equal opportunity for both sexes simply based on skill not gender, as both could do things equally well. Gloria Feltd argued and fought for women’s reproductive rights, as she was a teenage mother herself. She just as Taylor Mill had a middle to high class background, she believed among other things that equality would come with reproductive rights for all.
The text provides many examples of how the media reinforced the idea that women should be content as housewives, proving that this was a legitimate societal issue. The realization of the “feminine mystique” (in which women were essentially tricked into thinking they didn’t want to pursue careers or education) was effective at sparking a new wave of American
The logic in Wilson’s quote as it relates to women’s suffrage is if democracy is the right of those who submit to authority to have a voice in their own government than why do women not allow to vote because they too submit to authority as men do. She used that logical reasoning to convince Congress and her audience. Throughout the speech, it is believed that Catt uses a thoughtful but defensive
An example of this would be when Anthony questioned, “Are women persons?” to which she answered immediately after to say that women are, although they are not treated as such. Anthony’s strong use of her rhetorical devices, and use of her ethos, pathos, and logos, is what made the speech so powerful and well-remembered. Anthony’s speeches, along with several other speeches from several other women and their peaceful protests, encouraged America to move forward past their prejudice and accept the fact that women are in fact citizens, and deserve to exercise every right the founding fathers granted
Still, in my opinion, women are being discriminated by some people of what she can or cannot do. This is the same during the Elizabethan period where women can do things unless they are allowed by their spouse or male relatives. In my own opinion, the greatest impact that the Elizabethan period had with the modern England today is the language and literature. The language during the Elizabethan period was different. It wasn’t the English language that the modern England uses today.
Both these women are very well known women in the society. Just by learning the credibility of authors, the reader is able to trust the information provided in the article. What strengthens the credibility even more is that within the article they discuss what they think about confidence. Katty describes how she wasn’t smart enough for an upper-level job in journalism and Claire describes how with her alpha male coworkers they had the right to talk more on television than she did. So both these women had their personal experience which shows the audience that the authors are knowledgeable on this topic.
Elizabeth Cady Stanton was a large part in getting women rights. She organized several conventions for people to voice their opinions. In The two passages “The birthplace of Women’s Rights” and “A Powerful Partnership” they talk about her achievements and what she did to help women get their rights. One focusses more on Her herself and the other focusses more on her and the person she worked with. Which shows how she helped more?
She supported the belief that motherhood in itself was not derogatory or damaging. But when women do not acquire proper formal education, because of then duty as mother or wives then they suffer from loss of self-esteem and dignity. Wollstonecraft states that women should not sacrifice themselves at the altar of motherhood. Wollstonecraft says, “To be a mother a woman must have sense, and that independence of mind which few woman possess, who are taught to depend entirely on their husbands. Such wives are foolish mothers”(106).
After being a PM’ wife, it seems to give her vanity wings. That’s why she can speak openly about more staff without worrying about mass opinion. Gregoire-Trudeau still mistakes herself for just a celebrity of famous person; she should stop showing off and being more cautious so that the political situation does not get out of
Thanks to their courage, vision and determination they have changed the course of history for women and made it possible for women to have an active voice in this country. Emily Murphy, as well as the other women in the Famous Five, are role models and have encouraged other women today to work together to help fight for the rights of
