The biggest winner of the whole event is Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. Both of them put almost their lifetime concentrating on women’s right that heavily effects on United States as well as other countries afterwards. Without those helps from those associations and suffragists, perhaps United States still struggle with women’s legal rights
She said, “Women are usually credited with being more emotional than men; less able to hold an objective point of view, more given to injecting the personal note.” Then she followed by saying “Taken by and large, however, you will find more men than women discussing questions of public policy when they get together.” Roosevelt is judging women based on mass and stereotype. Not every woman is the same, but she is correct that most women couldn’t handle being president, but not all men could be either. Just because you’re male doesn’t make you the perfect fit so why should women be judged the same. What about that one woman that did enjoy questioning public policy, but was told she couldn’t because most other women didn’t. Toward the end of her speech, Roosevelt said: “That, however, does not alter the fact that women cannot afford to fail in any work which they undertake, particularly if it is work of a public character.” Women have never been given the chance to fail.
After years and years of battling the men who lead the government, the 19th amendment has been ratified. This now, guarantees all women the right to vote in America.Although women will probably never be completely equal to men in this world this is a huge leap for womankind. Women throughout the States are celebrating this great achievement.Some delegates have mocked women and have continued to believe that men should be the only ones allowed to vote and participate in government. This has only upset women more and has made the more powerful and passionate on the subject. Nationally, we are unsure of how this rate will be launched.
The Impact of Women's Suffrage on the U.S. The right to vote is perhaps the most coveted of American liberties. Without the right to vote, populations of people in the United States would cease to have key representation in this representative democratic government. But with the enormous societal emphasis that America puts on voting and elections in the modern status quo, little focus is placed on the incredibly surprising fact that, for much of American history, the right to vote was not one bestowed to all citizens. Instead, hundreds of years persisted in the United States in which the majority of the population did not have any say in the inner workings of their government—at least so far
Eva Smith is the perfect example to show the audience that you might not be affected by this but someone might be and you will be the blame for it. “but I felt rotten about it at the time and now I feel a lot worse.” Sheila said this because she actually felt really bad and to blame for this girl’s death unlike the rest of her family except Eric. People were put into social classes according to their wealth, jobs and success. The upper class families don’t care about others with low class and are shown to be more powerful at that time. The high class families always had the power even though they were the same as the others but more successful,
The fact that she was a female and went against a man’s power makes it seem worse than it actually has to be, all she did was pay her respect to her brother because no one would. Him putting Antigone to death because she went against his power clearly shows his feminism towards women. This also shows that all males had full power over society, economy, and women, which isn’t fair. Antigone displays her feminist qualities when she goes against the most powerful male, the king Creon. Her going against him shows her disrespect for Creon, her doing this and speaking like a male figure shows her push for equality between the sexes.
During Gilgamesh first journey of becoming whole which will also help restore balance to himself and his land. A hero who has already withhold a legacy such as Gilgamesh comes with its pros and cons of different women. By reading Gilgamesh, women are considered beneath men in society.

I assume that the polls showed Hillary Clinton winning because they would think she 's a better candidate. Most of the media were hoping that Hillary would win. In my opinion, Hillary Clinton would not have been a suitable president. A majority of Hillary 's supporters were women. Apparently, Hillary said she would 've done many things for women.
Women such as Dido encounter opportunities to overpower their male counterparts, yet ultimately fail as emotions hinder their judgement and overall fate. The Aeneid differs from other literal works because of its ability to question the actions of females based on their overall narrative and voice. This narrative is relevant to their passion and the aspects to which they hold important throughout the epic. The passages relating to Dido and her transformation to a fallen ruler shows a great juxtaposition between the role and influence women pertain as political leader. Dido, a once powerful Carthaginian, failed in having the power to bend a political man’s will to abandon his obligations, yet held the capability to do so.
Hooks claims that Sandberg's finances and popularity have helped her in her success, most women don't have the same opportunities that Sandberg does. Her essay is not efficient enough, since she does not gives new solutions, she speaks about old ideas that many people have tried to change already. She also can't represent or speak for all women when she has been in a very good position, women from other races or countries can not success even when they have the ambition to achieve their goals. Sandberg spoke about equality, when she apparently wants to be better than men. In order to improve equality between gender, we should start with respect in the actual society.
She raised her children alone, and all of them went on to be successful lawyers and politicians. If she was alive today, I think Elizabeth Hamilton would be fighting for women’s rights, as both she and her sister were believers in the fact that women were equal to men. I also think she would still be campaigning for her husband. He is still not as well-known as some of the other founding fathers, and he was just as important as them. Although most people have not heard of Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton, her story is slowly being told.
Not only in the United States, but rather all over the world, women consistently get looked down upon for various reasons. It might be because of the fact that men believe women are only useful for cooking, cleaning, and taking care of the kids. However, women actually hold a very important role in society. Men often forget that it was a female who brought them into this world. Women also take part in many political affairs and they always try to make the world a better place.
