Mary Wollstonecraft was a key component in the movement of rights for women. Her philosophies on equality were a precursor for women around the world who would join together and fight back against the injustice they faced due to their gender. Wollstonecraft promoted her ideals during the middle of the 18th century at a point in time where rights for women were non-existent and she lived her whole life without any true rights of her own. Years after her death, her values were continued by women who were trying to gain the right the vote. The fight for the rights of women has continued since then and still continues in modern feminist movements.

The book “ I am Malala” is a book that speaks essentially of something everyone deserves, withal not everyone has.

Today, millions of women can implement their rights to vote in all elections in the united states of America, but this (rights) did not come easily to those women who sacrifice their lives to make this happen. In the speech “Address to Congress on Women’s Suffrage”, Catt delivered her message for women’s right from a firsthand account of what she had experienced as a woman living in the United States of America in the 19th century. She advocated for the rights of women to vote because she believes in equal rights and justice for all citizens. The speech was very successful because of the use of ethos, pathos, and logos. The purpose of the speech was to pressure Congress into passing a legislation that would give women the right to vote in the United States of America.
In 1960, the first birth control pill was put on the market. This was the first time a woman’s reproductive health was in her own control. Ever since the 1900’s women have been fighting for the right to their own reproductive rights (“The Fight for Reproductive Rights”). With the upcoming presidential election the right to obtain birth control and other contraceptives for women could be jeopardized, and taken out of the control of the woman. Thus, the history of birth control, the statistics of how it affects today’s society, why women should have the ability to obtain it easily, and how if outlawed it would not only hurt women, but also the economy are all important topics in the women’s rights movement and very relevant in modern day society.
She has continue to strive for a better place for every human, no matter race, gender, sexuality or past life. Isn’t that what moral courage is all about? The amount of pain and suffering she has endured is beyond imagination but she has taken her struggles and has thrown them away as if they are nothing to her. Oprah winfrey is a hero, to me and many people, for good reason. How could you possibly not love Oprah Winfrey.
In the year 1913, Emmeline Pankhurst went to Hartford, Connecticut to deliver a speech to American women, invigorating them to support the suffragettes’ cause in England. Before one can understand the speech, one must know the historical context that landed Pankhurst in Connecticut. When feminism was becoming more common in Europe after World War I, many judged feminists harshly, describing them as a “shrieking sisterhood” and manly, neglecting their duties at home. The negative feedback made many women negligent to describe themselves as feminists(“Feminism in
The women of Britain started progressing to a better society for women and were not letting up until changes were made. Even female poets and artists even contributed to the debate for equal rights for women. Across nations women organized on behalf of social reforms such as prohibitions and public health. After fighting for so long women kept their foot in the door to keep making small changes to make society the way it is
Although there were many positive accomplishments of the Supreme Court, as a Woman I would have to say that the decision of Roe v. Wade which legalized abortion was by far the most vital because by deciding in favor of Roe it made the statement that no government was going to decide what a female has the right to do with her body; even if it was controversial. This was a very personal issue and one that was fought and in some cases died over, this is still an issue that woman struggle to protect even to this day. This gave women of all stations in life access if they so chose, to an abortion in a safe, clean and legal environment instead of a back alley somewhere. This wasn 't just a case of abortion rights because it resulted in access to contraception, better and more affordable OBGYN access, and medically accurate sex education as well; not to mention the fact that it set a precedent that affected more than thirty Supreme Court cases on denial of abortion services. When it comes to a decision that I feel was the most detrimental, I would have to say the Supreme Court decision of the case of the “hanging chad” in Bush v. Gore in 2000.
Susan B. Anthony was born into a Quaker family, with the hope that everyone would one day be treated equal. She denied a chance to speak at a temperance convention because she was a woman(Susan B. Anthony). From this point on, she knew that she needed to make a change. Susan B. Anthony, because of her intense work involving women 's’ rights, highly influenced all of the societies and beliefs that were yet to come. She employed a huge role in our history because of the fact that she advocated for women’s rights, for the integration of women in the workforce, and for the abolition of slavery.
Susan Brownell Anthony, a woman of abstinence, abolition, and African-American rights. A brave soul who took pride in trying to fight not only for her rights, but all of the fellow ladies and underprivileged people who did not really have a say. She was a kind woman who simply fought for what she believed in and those happened to be some of the most common human rights that we now have because of people like her. Rights to be payed the same. Rights to vote the same.
Eleanor Roosevelt is an inspiration for me, as a woman, and anyone who have felt the pressures of conforming to stand up strongly for their own personal beliefs despite societal limitations. Completely changing the role of the First Lady, Roosevelt actively promoted the careers of many women and encouraged them to enter the public life more. She became the protector of those most likely to be left on the margins– particularly women, African-Americans, and children- and fought for their rights. If Eleanor Roosevelt was alive today, I would ask what factors inspired her to persevere through harsh criticism, ridicule, and disapproval. From her dictating mother-in-law to parts of the American population, opposition for her battle against inequality
She always worked hard and as a result, even signed the Israeli declaration. Golda also helped settle disputes between hers and other countries, (Golda Meir, Blashfield). Golda Meir was always dedicated to protect her jewish home. She not only helped her country, but kept it safe too. Golda Meir was an important figure for all women around the world.
