Wollstonecraft proved that marriage doesn’t have to be the center of every woman’s world, and that education can be more beneficial to a woman than marriage. Anthony proved that despite the laws of the time, women are, and have always been, important, contributing citizens of society and therefore should be treated as such. Friedan proves that marriage isn’t everything, and women should place more focus on themselves and their careers. However, despite these valuable lessons we have learned, we have also seen that the realm of liberal feminism also contains a lot of contradictions. As I have stated time and time again, liberal feminism seeks equality, but not for everyone or to everyone.
“We are the granddaughters of the witches you couldn’t burn” -Tish Thawer. What started as a Hawaiian grandmother’s facebook post on the loss of Hillary Clinton’s loss in the Presidential election, ignited a worldwide phenomenon that united all people of different colors, religion, and sexuality. Women’s March is a liberation that supports all women, no matter who they are. Despite feminism existing since the beginning of time, women have always gone through degradation and hate. Schools need to educate students about the liberation of women’s rights because it gives students the reason to join the advocation of women, the differences between feminists and feminazis, and provides a more in-depth view about intersectional feminism.
Without educating womenfolk one cannot think of prosperous future generation. So, the development of future generation depends upon the education of women section. The children learn their manners and behaviours at home and mostly mothers are responsible for cultivating good behaviour in their children. Swami Vivekananda once said that, “It is impossible to think about the welfare of the world unless the condition of women is improved. It is impossible for a bird to fly on only one wing”.

One of Edna’s biggest internal conflicts is resolved because of Mademoiselle Reisz. This contributes to the theme of breaking social norms, because no woman would ever leave her husband and comfortable life to pursue a career during this time period. It was unheard of. If Edna chose the path that Adele was taking, she would be conforming to society’s standards, which shows that she made the right decision by not conforming and showing the reader that it is ok to not be like everyone else, and also show women that they can be independent and that they need to fight the social discrimination against their
“Banning child beauty pageants is certainly a step in the right direction.” (Riggs. 2013) All over the world, child beauty pageants has taken over. Here in America, many people believe that they need to be banned. Parents dress up their children in so many different outrageous outfits and makeup.

It is striking that complications from unsafe abortion are estimated to result in 13 per cent of maternal deaths worldwide.” The ban of abortion can put many women at risk. The suppression of these services is extremely unfair, and in many ways diminishing the rights of women. Women have been treated as inferior for many generations, with society pushing aside their ideas, allowing them to only act a certain “ladylike” way, and denying them certain, yet important rights. Oscar Wilde, a famous play writer once said “Women are meant to be loved, not to be understood.” Women want to be understood,
It is a flaw to think that there is little hope in the future; anything could happen in the future! One has to try something before they can declare it a “waste of time.” (115 words) I disagree with this statement. If the women want to be able to learn, let them learn. It is their right to have a good education, as everyone in America deserves it. I think the stereotype that women are the ones who work at home and care for the kids should be gone, because frankly, not all women want to do that.

The authors of this article show that the ERA will not directly affect the people but that it would indirectly effect the people. They really do not have a set stance on whether we truly need this amendment today or not. I on the other hand fully believe that we need the ERA in the Constitution. The ERA is a great foundation of economic equality and without that foundation, women will never be equal. Alice Paul, a women’s right activist, once quoted, “When you put your hand to the plow, you can’t put it down until you get to the end of the row.” Phyllis Schlafly started the campaign of ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment in 1923 and I am beyond certain that the ERA activists today will not stop until it is ratified and accepted into the constitution.
“Led by an invisible hand to promote an end which is no part of his intention.” When people give charity it is not bad but it can affect society around you and make the economy less efficient. Equal rights was the main topic of wollenstone’s document. “ In short reason and experience have led me to believe that the only method of leading women to fulfil their particular duties is to free the from all restraint by allowing them to participate in the inherent right of mankind.” This says if you allow women to be educated they would be equals.
