The main reason why the women are there are just to become a good wife and have many children. The cause of this is because people wanted many children so they could help with work. The effect of this was this became the dominate role for women and all the women did was have babies, take care of children, and certain task they were assigned for example cooking or gathering water. Another piece of evidence to support this is how even though the men had more priority over women some women had accepted this lesser role over time. “Although there were clear disadvantages to women, paradoxically, many of them enjoyed being provided for and complied to the female gender roles that had be reinforced within the group for years.
While women flooded the workforce and in many cases became the main breadwinner of the family, the jobs that they had were in traditionally female areas, and thereby helped reinforce what was viewed as feminine jobs and what was viewed as masculine jobs. By the end of the Depression in 1939, the areas in which women had predominately worked such as nursing and clerical work, were viewed as women’s work, which in turn made in more difficulty for the government to persuade women to enter the workforce during the Second World
Women seem to be severely underestimated in the qualities they possess. There are just different standards between the two. That’s where the problem stems from. When young girls are taught at an early age that the main thing that they should aspire to be is a mother, it limits the many other options that they have to choose from in life. Since society produces this image of a “stay at home mom”, it makes it much harder for a woman to really be ambitious enough to grasp what it is she really wants in life.
Motherhood is described by many, as a full-time job, giving birth to and raising multiple children is a self-sacrificing and strenuous life-long dedication and often, women are forced to choose between their domestic life and their professional life, but it is possible, at times, to find a balance between both. There is a societal pressure or misconception that insists that if a woman is a feminist, she isn 't allowed to value her personal role as a mother, over her professional life but I believe feminism, in essence, is all about choice. Furthermore, a problem only arises when women are forced into domestic roles, they did not choose or personally want. If a woman chooses to place a higher preference on her domestic life than her professional life or vice versa, her views as a feminist are still just as valuable as any
Even though women 's lives improved during the 1920s in many ways, they still faced inequality in the workplace. Women gained the right to vote and new freedom in the 1920 's, but they were still discriminated against in the workplace. They were prevented from most well-paying jobs and middle and upper-class white women were expected to stay home instead. Most poorer women still held jobs that were low paying and struggled to work to support themselves and their families. Women worked longer hours and got paid significantly less than men did.
They argue that a major theme is that “[a]lthough it is a job that can never be done perfectly, motherhood is depicted as an empowering role” (Parini 200). Throughout the novel, we see Taylor and Lou Ann adjusting and learning how to parent a child by themselves. It is a struggle for them; however, they learn quickly and conquer their motherhood. While it is valid that some readers might think motherhood is a hard and empowering role, still my theme of men-less women being powerful remains central because the power of women has a lot to do with raising their children. For example, Taylor is talking to her mama via payphone and tells her some exciting news.
Rosie the Riveter was the biggest motivator for women to join the workforce in the 1940s during World War II. She was an example that pictured women as tough and powerful, just as men are, when it comes to the workplace. Not only did it give men a better idea of what women are capable of, but it also gave women the inspiration and confidence that it takes to leave the children with a sitter or daycare to join the workforce. There are many reasons why a woman might decide to get a job, the most common being that the extra money is needed to support her family. Although a woman may get a job, there are many people that believe that a mom needs to stay at home because she is the only option when it comes to raising and caring for her children;
Women stayed home and took care of the children, cooked and cleaned while men were away working and “getting things done”. Women are highly underappreciated when the subject of history appears. Many do not like admitting that women have as much to do with the development of America as men do but it is apparent in several instances of history that America would not be what it is today without women. Several women throughout history have helped develop American society as a whole and they should be recognized. For example Sojourner Truth had a huge impact on early America serving as a double threat, fighting for Women
Coming from a strained relationship with her parents, Lorelai finds herself propelled and driven to succeed in her career. This phenomenon was noted by psychologist Edwin C. Lewis who stated, “There is the possibility that a career orientation among girls grows out of personal dissatisfactions, so that the career becomes a frustration outlet” (p.34). Since Lorelai has a seemingly never-ending source of energy, working at the inn provides not only an income for the family, but also as an outlet to put her talents to use. In fact, according to Buehler (2011), “mothers with jobs tend to be healthier and happier”. Lorelai exceeds this statement because for the most part, she upholds a positive disposition and good health.
For a start, both of these speeches cover women’s rights. Both women Hillary, and Shirley talk about how women are under appreciated even tho all the hard work they do, contribute to the world as we know it. Shirley says “ when a young woman graduates from college and starts looking for a job, she is likely to have a frustrating and even demeaning experience ahead of her. “ Basically, even tho women go through the struggle of college they still had even more of a struggle to find a job, at this time. Hillary states this about the issue of women being under-appreciated “Yet much of the work we do is not valued--not by economists, not by historians, not by popular culture, not by government leaders.” They also both talk about discrimination against
