Later on, after a period of recovery involving electroshock and psychotherapy she resumed her academic pursuit and went on to win a Fulbright scholarship to study at Cambridge.

Women’s role in the household and in the workforce has changed significantly since the years prior to the 1950’s. During World War II, women joined the workforce to replace jobs that were left vacant by men in battle. In today’s society, women have become extremely prominent in the workforce, leaving behind their traditional roles of being the “ideal housewife.” This was how it was for decades, and in the story “The Story of an Hour” and the play Trifles, marriage is portrayed as a binding prison that these women wish to escape. Both Glaspell and Chopin go into the different extremes of how far an oppressed woman would go to free herself from her marriage. In the short story, “The Story of an Hour,” Louise Mallard is given the news that there was a “railroad disaster” (Chopin 283), and her husband was the leading name on the “killed” list.
In a woman 's life, she has always been told to be a certain way or to do certain things. She was not allowed to pave her own path, her path was paved by her mother until she was married then it was paved by her husband.

Each women being individualistic in nature often had individual opinions about things, each of them had their own set of problems and explanations for not turning up for weekly area meetings for forming SHGs.

But despite so many challenges, CRH mobilizers made it a point to go to the communities and start afresh, by convincing and manipulating the women all over again to come and participate in the area meetings. All these challenges reflect the very essence of community organization practice; as a matter of fact it is only through overcoming such challenges one could master the practice of community
The last big change that any women had seen had been forty years before when women earned the right to vote. Birth control was going to lead the way for many more changes. Housewives finally got to see a change in their lifestyle and unmarried women were no longer considered to be the outcasts. Women were now able to enter the workforce but with limited job opportunities. However, in 1964, five months before Kisses for My President was released, the Civil Rights Act of 1964 allowed for more job opportunities and outlawed discrimination against race, color, sex, national origin, and religion.
Introduction In 1962, 37% of American women were in the workforce and in 2016, the percentage of working women increased to 57.2% - a 27.2% increase (Burke, 2017). In modern American society, women are lawyers, teachers, or any other career they desire. However, over half of all women between the age of 15-44 share one occupation in common: motherhood (Luckerson, 2015).
