She studied under Ann Preston, the first female dean of Women’s Medical College of Pennsylvania, during Cole’s time there. The primary issue that several people had with her work was her duty as a sanitary visitor. Some did not see the purpose of having a sanitary visitor since he/she would not be providing the poor with the tools they need instead just informing them on how to stay sanitary. Cole faced many challenges and barriers during her career as a physician. In the 1860s, the United States was just adjusting to the end of the Civil War and African Americans were free but not treated equally.
In the 19th century, the hardships for women increased drastically. During the progressive era, females finally wanted a different life style. Woman sought changes in the home, mostly when alcohol became legal. The hardships women faced will never be understood in today 's society. Alcohol may have been a friendly companion for men after coming home from a long day at work, but little did people know, innocent women were being abused .
In an excerpt from Daily Life during World War I by Neil Heyman, titled “Military Nurses and Their Auxiliaries”, an American nurse’s aide describes how “hundreds upon hundreds of wounded poured in like a rushing torrent... The crowded, twisted bodies, the screams and groans, made one think of the old engravings in Dante’s Inferno”. From this, it is possible to surmise
Florence Aby Blachfield affected WWII by tending to the wounded and fighting to have the same pay as her male co-workers. She had a significant impact on the war for many women. Florence Blanchfield daughter of Joseph and Mary Anderson Blanchfield, was born on April 1, 1889 in Shepherds town, Virginia where she was one of eight children. When Florence was smaller she attended Walnut Springs Public Schools in VA before attending Granda Institute Boarding School. She took secretarial courses in Pittsburgh, then transferred to medicine by enrolling at the South Side Training School for Nurses and graduated in 1906.
She realized she had been labeled as an abolitionist, and her life was in danger, but she was determined to help her people. She overlooked her safety to help someone in need. “Harriet established the Harriet Tubman Home for the Aged on a property adjacent to her own. After undergoing brain surgery to try to alleviate the symptoms from the head injury that had plagued her since childhood, and being essentially penniless, Harriet was forced to move into the home herself in 1911. She died there on March 10, 1913, supported by family and friends”.
CCIB LPA Perryman-French received a call from Elizabeth. Her mother Lupe DeGennaro (DOB 05/29/34) was in this facility from 08/15/15 to 09/19/15. Elizabeth moved her to another location and the administrator of that location told her to call CCL. The entire time her mother was in this facility she was strapped to her wheelchair with a cloth strap because she would get up and try to walk around the house. (Lupe is a fall risk, so Elizabeth did not know this was not legal).
She knew she could do more, and that’s where her reformation began. During her 12 years as First Lady, she became as controversial as her husband. Eleanor’s breadth of works and liberal advocacy was unprecedented; she completely changed the responsibility and role of women in power, particularly the position of First Lady. One example of her defiant work occurred in 1939 when the Daughters of the American Revolution refused to let Marian Anderson, an African American singer, perform in Constitution Hall. Eleanor Roosevelt promptly resigned from the organization and held a concert at the nearby Lincoln Memorial for Anderson.
The individual’s names were Wright, Mary Ann McClintock, and Jane Hunt. These five females met one another at a social visit on July 1848 (Seneca Falls). They were all acquainted with antislavery, and everyone except Stanton, were Quakers. While discussing about the call for a convention, the April passage of the long-deliberated New York Married Woman’s Property Rights Act, was still fresh in their minds. This act was passed on April 7, 1848, and although it allowed protection of the property of married women, it was still far from a comprehensive piece of Legislation for females (American).
Sanger was educated as a nurse at Claverack College in New York. In 1912 she began her early career working as a nurse for maternity cases on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. There she witnessed great poverty which seemed to stem from the inability of these people to control when they have children. She also saw a number of women utilizing self-induced abortions, which were extremely dangerous and resulted in many deaths. She quit her work as a nurse and dedicated herself to progressing birth control rights in America.
At that time, they took on roles such as nurses, seamstresses, and cooks. Some women worked as spies while others disguised themselves as men in order to serve in the fight. Over the years, women contributed as well as adapted to the many changes that took place in America and remained willing to take on new roles that helped make this country what it is today. Women began to serve officially in the military when the Army established a permanent Nurse Corps in 1901 (Women In Combat: Framing the Issues).
The nurse I decided to write about is Dorothea Dix. She was an author, teacher, and a reformer. Dix fought for the mentally ill and prisoners on how they were treated across the United States as well as in Europe. She established many hospitals for the mentally ill, along with how the mentally ill can be helped or even cured. Her troubling background and family history served as an impact of her career.
A character that I feel embodies one of Horney's three neurotic trends is Regina George from Mean Girls. I believe she embodies the trend of moving against people. First of all, she maintains a constant facade of being ruthless and throughout the movie exploits and uses others for her benefit. She never admitted her mistakes and was driven to appear perfect, powerful, and superior. Using her looks, she constantly made sure she had the upper hand and appeared as ideal as possible.
