The princess Elizabeth was born when instead, everybody was expecting a boy. Knowing that she must give birth to a boy soon to please her husband, Anne got several miscarriages before Henry sparked interest in her lady-in-waiting – Jane Seymour. To get rid of her, Anne Boleyn was charged with treason in May of 1536, for adultery, incest, and plotting to murder Henry VIII. Although these charge most likely had no factual basis, Anne Boleyn was beheaded on Tower Green at the discretion of the King. Immediately after his wife’s execution, Henry married Jane, who was never crowned Queen.

Throughout this time period women took a backseat in representing their on independence. The most liberating account I read was Elizabeth Cady Stanton’s’ “Declaration of Sentiments.” It stood out to me, because it was unique and remarkable just as any of the other women two women in the Women’s suffrage movement. Her creative use of the Declaration of Independence as her framework makes the letter similar. However, the only change would be historical context and how it could be used in different aspects. Freedom, and liberty are still talked about and held at the same pedestal that Stanton states throughout her document.

Feminism in Faulkner’s “A rose for Emily” In A Rose for Emily, Faulkner deals with the life and death of Miss Emily, a woman that is considered crazy mainly because she never showed interest on the traditional woman role of getting married and forming a family, especially since the story develops in the late 1800s. Although Miss Emily can be presented as a weak character that the town feels responsible for and takes care of, this paper would argue that her character presents a real strength. In fact, some scholars argue that her strength uses the symbolism of a goddess (Eriksson). This is shown in two main points, the first regarding the image that the town people have of her as a single woman, and the second regarding the strength within herself. Firstly, regarding the view of people on Miss Emily, they seem to pity her, firstly by the fact that she could not fulfill her womanhood by marriage, and then by the death of her father.
Once the reform movement began, however, abolitionist women realized their rights could be compared to those of slaves, and a few bold women decided to do something about the inequality of men and women (Finkelman 405). What these ladies decided to do, of course, was start the women’s rights movement. A few of these brave women who spoke out were Lucretia Mott, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Susan B. Anthony. Stanton formed a friendship with Anthony and their two distinct personalities did so much to further the women’s rights movement (Schmittroth and McCall 246). Their differing personalities allowed them to work efficiently, for example, “Anthony would tend to
Analysis of the Last Line In “The Roman Spring Of Mrs. Stone” In his first novella, “The Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone”, the writer, Tennessee Williams, has portrayed the life of a woman who loses her beauty and goes through menopause and comes to the realization that her success as an actress had more to do with her beauty and single minded tenacity to be "The King on Top of the Mountain", rather than natural talent. She gives up on her career as an actress and goes into a form of exile by travelling to Europe with her husband, who unfortunately passes away two months later. She goes through an existentialist soul searching journey. She analyses and lives her life in a detached way and feels that she is mindlessly drifting on the ocean of life without any actual purpose. She moves to the three thousand year old City of Rome where she gets in touch with an elderly impoverished Countess (whom she and her husband had met on an earlier trip to Italy before the war) who introduces her to a series of marchetta 's (good looking young gigolos who live of the patronage rich protectors) culminating in Paolo , whom she falls in love with and in spite of her pride lands us up letting him debase her .

“The Yellow Wallpaper” is her best-known and important 19th century short-story dealing with the subject of madness. The story is believed to have been inspired from the real life experience of Gilman who suffered a severe depression during her decade-long marriage and “underwent a series of unusual treatments for it”. She was refused to perform any intellectual actions by her specialist Dr. S. Weir Mitchell and prescribed a complete bed rest “rest cure” for several weeks. She was prevented from pursuing her ambition as a writer and suggested to “live as domestic life as far as possible”, making her sick more than ever. Her sufferings, depression, mental trauma, and oppression, find its full eloquence in this very story where she uses madness as an agency to give voice to her mental sufferings and rebellion against the women oppression.

In order to achieve this Minnie made arrangements with United States Senator from Texas Morris Sheppard in 1917 for a conference in his Washington, D.C. office for women to state their perspectives on the proposed suffrage amendment to the Constitution of the United States. Minnie and NAWSA lobbyist Maud Wood Park, who would become the first president of the League of Women Voters, initiated a campaign for constituents to flood the offices of their representatives with telegrams in favor of passage. The United States House of Representatives passed the first version of the Nineteenth Amendment on January 10, 1918, but it failed in the United States Senate.
