Naden khaled Ms. Amanda 11C 22/2/2017 Women’s Education and Jobs in The Antebellum Era Although women in the antebellum era were far from seen as equal american citizens, many changes happened that affected the way that the community looks at women. From nothing to schools that helped them learn and help them get a bigger opportunity. Despite how great women are now, long ago they didn’t have the right to work or even to go to schools. Women were expected to sit at home take care of the kids and maybe take care of a farm if she had one. Before the civil war women had somewhat of an education.
Friedan shocked the world by contradicting the role of what a housewife is supposed to do. She also called females to seek fulfillment of taking a job outside of the house. Friedan’s had such an impact on women that its credited for being the start of the “second wave” of the American feminist movement. Now women would take a stand for their equality right in America. The movement in the 1960s and 1970s was mainly focused on diminishing workplace inequality, such as wages and better jobs.
This began the first military draft, advances in war via ships, and newer forms of guns. The war divided the North (Union) and the South (Confederate) by states and the war ultimately ended with the victory of the North. Another unexpected addition to this war was that women were involved in many different facets. Some women secretly fought in the war, but others played parts as spies, nurses, abolitionists, and feminists. Women did not generally have a place in the days before the civil war, except as home makers so with the diversity
In the book Revolutionary Mothers, author Carol Berkin discusses women’s roles in the American Revolution. She separates out the chapters so that she can discuss the different experiences and roles of women during the period. She utilizes primary and secondary sources to talk about how women stepped into their husband’s shoes and maintained their livelihoods and how they furthered the war effort on both sides, as well as how classes and race effected each woman’s experience. Berkin’s main goal was for the reader to understand that although women’s roles aren’t traditionally discussed when talking about the American Revolution, nevertheless, they played a major part in it. Information on the Revolutionary War typically focuses on the Founding Fathers and their actions that brought about American independence.

Hartman illustrate that both type women were tied to household duties and taking care of children. Hartman acknowledge that in the mid 1800’s, that “Cult of Domesticity” arose in society believed and stated that women’s role is simply to mothers and a wives. Women had little contact with others and little relief from everyday tasks other than household responsibilities.

She played a huge role in the women’s rights movement and became one of its founders.

Throughout history, women tended to keep getting less and less rights. Roman women had almost as many rights as men, and had many of the rights that women in the seventeenth century were denied. Married women had the right to enter into contracts and own and dispose of property, as well as having certain limited rights.

In 1920, all women were given the right to vote. Divorce was made easier and they doubled due to women not willing to deal with their bad husbands.

This narrative demonstrates the expected position of women in society. Today, women have a very different role in society than they did a century ago. Now, it is common to see mothers and wives who are professionals, working for the government or in public service, and at the same time fulfilling their role in their homes. This is a result of a reformation that took place in the 19th and 20th centuries, where women whose only task and purpose was to be in the house craved for more opportunities in

Abraham Lincoln once said, “Leave nothing for tomorrow which can be done today” (Basler). Not only does this collection of words seem to inspire many today, but it reflects the thoughts of southern women throughout the Civil War. Although modern women are very close to having equal rights, the feelings of southern women during the civil war differed from those of whom live now. Since the southern belles were not respected the way that modern women are today, matters were taken into the hands of each brave woman during the time. Before I begin to describe the powerful roles of women at and around the battlefield, it seems as if many do not know the influence that women had on the male soldiers as they went off to war.
