For example, back then women had just been allowed to vote. This was a huge change for that time, and changed the course of history. Also, wives could not own a property; it all belonged to their husbands. Today, women have fought for, and acquired much more freedom in regards to rights and freedoms, such as being allowed to vote, being allowed to own property, and having more power over their own decisions. Thirdly, most wives in the late 19th-20th century didn’t have much of an education, because they were forced to stay home and take care of domestic tasks.
Before the Women 's Rights reforms, American women were discriminated in society, home life, education, and the workforce. As a result of the Women 's Rights Movement, women gained the right to vote, access to higher education and opportunities to enter the workforce, overall changing the femmine life for the better. Women in the 1800s were stripped of their voice, not only were they unable to vote, they were often kept from speaking openly in public. Their lack of rights left them dependent on men (Bonnie and Ruthsdotter). The American Women were voiceless, they had no say in society, however the reform movement would change that.
Although many men were angered by her rule because they worried their power and control would diminish. Empress Wu’s ability to control society in a functional manner and better China over the course of her reign was able to prove how a women was able to be much more than what society and men wanted them to
To illustrate history, women have not always had an specific place in society, but the views that society has held for women is far from how women see themselves in this day in time. With regards as time has come and gone women have evolved just like technology. Women have overcome many milestones in life, speaking from historically standpoint. We all know that our great grandmothers’ only took care of the home, the children and their husband. In those days’ women were seen as caregivers and women were told that they had to be submissive to their husbands.
Roles Played By Women In Classical Civilizations Women weren’t always seen as equal to men, throughout history women have been mistreated and thought to be less than men. In the classical times,the Rome Empire and the Han dynasty had many similarities and a couple differences in the way they treated their women. During the Classic period from 300 BCE-600 CE, women in Rome and the Han Dynasty were treated and seen as less than men, in China were to submit to their husbands while in Rome women were to be married as soon as they hit puberty and had many disadvantages in divorce,in both civilizations the main role of women was to of taking care of children and the home.

From writing books to writing in newspapers. Paulina Wright Davis started the first journals made for women, Una (Una is the latin word unum, which means one). Maybe other women wrote some great books and changed people's lives. For example The Bonte Sisters written by Jane Austen. The Bonte Sisters was a great book that talked about how these three sisters had to work many jobs and suffer to get money to help their families, This book shows us the importance of women and how they always work hard and try to achieve all their goals although sometimes the community makes it impossible because they never provide things that women need , for example education or jobs they were always rarely found in a community that never understood the meaning of women.The famous read book was by a women Harriet Beecher Stowes Uncle Toms Cabin.
"Failure is impossible" as Susan Anthony stated to assert that she would never give up defending women rights .she believed that women and men should have equal rights. And she spent her life calling for freedom for women, and she was always standing against slavery by all its meanings. When she were young she worked at her father`s mill instead of a woman that got tired and her father paid her money but he paid much more money for the men working there. And while she was a teacher she called for equal payment for both men and women. As men had "no more brains than women".
This proved when the narrator’s mother always tried to get the narrator to do work that appropriate for a lady instead of outside work, however it was not something that she enjoyed. The narrator also was not considered of real helper to her father because she was a female. This proved when her father introduced the narrator as ‘his new hired hand’ to a salesman, he replied, “I thought it was only a girl” (line 76, paragraph 10).This shows how the society view girl as ‘just a girl’ at that time and it means that their roles are not really significant in the society. As being said by Alexander Pope (1688-1744), “Most women have no character at all.” (Bressler, C.E., 2011). Next, from the statement “wait till Laird gets a little bigger, then you’ll have a real help” (line 94, paragraph 12), it shows that, even though the narrator had done more work than her younger brother, she was still under appreciated and her helps seem unimportant for her father.
Women have more freedom in America than in Annawadi, but this right had to be fought for and still to this day there are still some inequalities in the workplace because of people with a fixed mindset that a woman's job is to stay at home and do all the cleaning. These kinds of stereotypes have made women fight against the prejudices by joining the military, acquiring government positions, and even becoming chief executive officers of a company. These rights were not handed to them as they had to fight for them, but both kinds of women share the similarity of being considered second class citizens instead of first class citizens. The women in America do not need to fight for scraps of food or work harsh labors to survive as they just have to worry about studying to have a better
Being a girl is hard, women have been the second best since the beginning of time, women weren’t allowed to do a man's job in the military and it’s time that further evolves into women and men doing all of the same jobs. Although, some may argue that keeping women protected from the harsh realities of war is the reasonable thing to do and those people have a valid argument when they say women aren’t emotionally stable enough to fight on the front lines, or that women aren’t strong enough to serve; this applies to some women not all. Women have proven themselves capable of so much more than the standard that is set for them in the military: overcoming their physical differences and putting the excuses to rest. The excuses about being a distraction to men and that women are going to be prioritized over fighting. The military makes us believe that everyone in the military is treated
