Today, the first lady has to campaign nearly as extensively as her husband, for the position (Diller and Robertson 145). The first lady is more than the wife to the President.

Female role models especially in the Political Science field of study, encourage other women, older or younger, that women belong in government. These female role models, show other women in the public that they care about women’s issues, that they have fought the same fight, and have made it out on top. Also, they can encourage other women to be “go getters” in their daily lives, and fight for the “corner office”. In addition, there’s needs to be an equal representation of female role models from different ideologies, ethnicities, religions, or sexual orientations in government. This way, women all over the country can be represented, no matter if your a Democrat, Republican, or Independent; or are White, Hispanic, African American, Asian, or Native American; or practice Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, or no religion at all; or if you are straight, gay, bisexual, or asexual.
Arab Women and Media The world has crafted communities whereby human beings are not equal, because some societies have labeled men as rulers and women to be ruled hence leading to gender inequality. Women in the Arab world have experienced gender inequality because this is an act that is prevalent in the Arab world. In our modern world where media plays a key role, it can also be an excellent platform that can be used in the society to change people’s perspective. It can also change or empower women in the Arab world who are inspired by their dreams, visions, and beliefs in what they are capable of doing and therefore the media in the Middle East is reaching a diverse audience. Humanity involves an individual’s rights, justice, and freedom

The first traces of the twentieth century feminist movement dates back to before the Civil War began. Women like Harriet Beecher Stowe influenced the masses through their feminist beliefs. Stowe, through her strong female characters in Uncle Tom’s Cabin, created a persona of women that was not typical of her time period; women who showed strength and independence apart from male figures. It was this type of literature and speaking that influenced the feminist movements that emerged again at the turn of the nineteenth century. Feminists during this election were desperately trying to gain the right to vote, and the 1912 candidates had varying viewpoints on this issue.
American Cinema has also opened up a new world for those, who were formally thought, to be behind a cooking stove or ironing board. American Cinema did more than just create jobs and movie stars for our leading ladies of our great nation. American Cinema let the nation see keys roles played by woman in the history of our country. The 1979 film, Norma Rae, helped put in perspective the involvement of women in our labor right movement and establishing unions for our workers. The 1980 film, The Life and Times of Rosie the Riveter, was able to open many eyes to how important women were in our entry to World War II.
In conclusion, the political action of women in the progressive era played a key role in the fight for democracy and freedom. The feminist movements worked hard toward improving women’s status in society and ending discrimination. The notion of freedom meant different things to various women, depending on the paths they chose in their lives. Despite its limitations, progressivism had a positive impact on American society. Several doors were opened for women to be active citizens, enjoy the freedom they deserve and fulfill their
Women’s rights have been a largely debated topic since the beginning of time and it continues to remain relevant in this day and age. Slowly but surely, women have begun to stand up for themselves and continue to make a name for themselves. Moreover, women have entered the works of almost every single industry in the job department. They have transformed the thought of downgrading roles and stereotypes into positive models which affect this generation in a more uplifting manner. (Synthesis) Even though women’s involvement in government is smaller than most would of hoped, women’s rights have been expanding and evolving especially in the home and working world as women now hold major employment positions and it is acceptable for women to work
Women right activist groups today, however, are very politically alienated as compared to the 1960s. Feminists emphasized, and continue to emphasize, that gender roles are social constructions that amount to a system of oppression. Feminists argued for equality, both political and social, for women, as well as fundamental changes in their roles in the home. The questions raised about gender also paved the way for entirely new movements, such as the movement for gay rights. Some of the issues taking frontline in discussions for women rights in mainstream Western societies today include reproductive rights, pay equality, and equality of educational
This discrimination against sex is called sexist and America itself has embodied the definition of sexism through the unrealistic idea of women on TV, the pay gap, and the fact that there are very few women involved with politics. There is no voice for women being heard in these aspects and there must be a voice for women. As being a feminist, I find that it is completely sad that America is still holding up those stereotypes and is not finding ways to develop better quality between men and women, along with establishing a greater body of support for men and women. The media needs to change its stereotypical and sexist views of women to develop equality between the two and to see women not as the sex symbol but as the one who is powerful. That is something that seems to be missing in media.
