Perhaps, Stanton was right. Today, society often takes our rights for granted so much that it is easy to forget that if it had not been for average women taking a stand for what they believe in, we would not be where we are today. There was a great amount of pain and suffering behind the push to end Women’s
Clifton will never think that she is worthless because of what other people think of her. She feels that her size will not make her any less of a woman than anyone else. Clifton also says “these hips are free hips” (524), what she means is that because she is a woman, she will not be enslaved
Also the author was able to strengthen her argument by adding supporting views from authorities (Jean Baker Miller), which emphasized how women tend to avoid the appearance of power as she never take credit for her achievements and usually blames it on being lucky. At the end of the essay the author advocates several strategies women should pursue in order to get tough such as “taking credit when credit is due” (Par.10), because taking credit when it is deserved is a sign of confidence and determination, also she explains how women should express their anger in different ways rather than just smiling. Finally she reruns the scene when she was sexually harassed in a way displaying her as a tough woman, not as a “lady”. Being tough is an essential quality women should possess in order to succeed in society but also being ladylike
It implies that each individual was created equal, no matter what race or gender the individual is. But this is highly contradicted because despite the inalienable rights each individual is born wit, they are not allowed to pursue them especially if the individual is a woman. According to society and their views, a woman is useless when it comes to other daily activities that doesn't involve work. It clearly states what women cannot due because of their gender and it also states the rights that they are deprived from expressing, which clearly shows the majority, just because they are a
She is clueless since people in the ancient world never go against the law and especially women are supposed to be obedient and are less significant. Men ruled the state and had authority over women. Ismene follows the same views the phrase "Remember we are women, we're not born to content with men" states this. She is in utter shock when Antigone suggests disobeying the law. Ismene's confusion highlights Antigones rebellious
Even after the colonial and republic era, women’s roles did not stop evolving. Even to this day women are said to be mistreated, receiving less pay than men, on average, for the same job. Women have definitely shone and stood out due to their changed roles in society, but there is no such thing as a “golden age” for now. If there were to be a golden age I would say it is still in progress because our society is by no means perfect, and will never be, but it may be one step closer if we were all treated
Janie tried to refute this idea that only a man could complete her life. Although she yearned for a reciprocated love, she didn’t need it, for she was more longing of an overall well-being. Her independency and empowerment conveys the feminism focus because she never necessarily believed that any man could waltz into her life and drastically improve. She saw them as equals. She believed that women could think and care for themselves sometimes.
When one takes that into consideration, none of it appears as something a dedicated woman wouldn 't be able to handle. To make basic training equal to both sexes, time standards for a woman to meet the designated goal can be lowered. While still expecting women to meet the strength goals, extra time can still push everyone to their breaking point but in a timely manner. The sex of someone has become a barrier for women because men want them to complete objectives as quickly as them as well as further neglecting the privilege to either fail or succeed on the frontlines. Karen Brooks gives a feminist view on the way armed forces treat women as a whole in her writing “Women Should Be Allowed On The Front Line.” She says, “Men and women are equally capable of bravery and heroism as they are of bullying and vilifying their own and the opposite sex” (8).
Liberal feminists argue that women have the same capacity as men for moral reasoning and work habits, but that patriarchy, particularly the sexist division of labor, has historically denied women the opportunity to express and practice this reasoning. These dynamics serve to shove women into the private sphere of the household and to exclude them from full participation in public life. Hence, gender inequality is a hazard not only to the highly capable, talented and deserving women but also to the economy as a whole. Both awareness of the existing gender inequality and implementation of policies that address gender inequities need to be strengthened. Reducing the amount of time women spend on unpaid work is also essential.
She is “against rape” in all its forms. However, she thinks not everyone agrees with her, as many countries around the world are still very tolerant when it comes to marital rape. She then talks about Lebanon, where there are no civil law against husbands sexually violating their wives. Despite religious leaders 's beliefs that women are men 's “legal appendages” and accessories, and their involvement in civil courts decisions, the author doesn 't blame the lack of gender civil rights on religious authorities. Rather, she talks about a global gender discriminative vision seen around the world, that feminists must fight against in order to make it disappear.
