This example also shows that the girl was not a problem, and she became a solution. Wudunn insisted that if women and girls got out of the vicious cycle, and they could enter into a virtuous cycle. I think that Wudunn should share her good examples of women and girls in the remote areas because their successful lives are evidence of the donation that someone donated. Although some people donate some money, they could not see how their money leads to improve people of the poverty in the remote areas, so I think that Wudunn’s social media activities are important for not only those women and girls in the remote areas but also people in the developed countries to know about
Some of these effects were the Seneca Falls Convention and the impact the women involved made to start the movement, the 19th Amendment that gave women a voice in politics, and the Equal Pay Act that ended discrimination against women in the workforce and granted them equal pay as men for the amount of work. Even today, the Women’s Movement still affects us by being able to vote, own property, go to college, get amazing jobs, being equal to your partner in a marriage, and even being able to support yourself without a partner. Women are now able to do a lot more than what they could have done in the early 20th
In 1976 - 1997, PRC after Mao, the role of women had improved even more. During the Reform and Opening up, women can run their own business freely like men starting from 1978. Because of this, in 1997, in the list of the richest women around the world, over half of the women on the list are Chinese. In conclusion, I think it is a progress for the Role of Women in 1900 - 1997, this is because when the Communist were in control of China, they have banned lots of rules that are bad for women such as Child girls working as servant. Also, 1949 was a turning point of the role of women because there were lots of new laws that are good for women pursued.
The symbolic icon of Rosie the Riveter contributed greatly to women joining the workforce in the United States during World War II, later becoming a symbol of female empowerment. Women were no longer considered the typical housewife; she was now the working wife as nearly one-fourth of married women worked outside the home (History). These women who started working during World War II were referred to as “Rosies,” hence, the name Rosie the Riveter (Alchin). Rosie was a symbol representing the women who worked during war times (Sanders). The birth of Rosie the Riveter was as propaganda during the second world war.
The Power of Women In Mothers to think Back Through: Who are They? The Ambiguous Example of Christian de Pizan, by Sheila Delaney.

Delaney supports Christine through her writing, that women are considered to be strong, wise, skilled, brave, and are capable to do any work as men and learn various things that can help them with their actions. As time passes by, women are open to various opportunities in the society with more freedom.
These Confucian ideals were all that women knew of gender roles and family values during the Choseon period (Jeong & Dreyer, 2003). As the history presented has pointed out, women have been subjugated and disempowered throughout Korean history. Much has changed in the last 70 years for Korea and its female population. According to the World
In 1920, of 8 million women working for wages, one-quarter were married and living with their husbands. The working woman immigrant and native, working-class and became a professional symbol of female emancipation. Women faced special limitations on their economic freedom, including wage discrimination and exclusion from many jobs. Yet almost in spite of themselves, union leader Abraham Bisno remarked, young immigrant working women developed a sense of independence: “They acquired the right to a personality,” some- thing alien to the highly patriarchal family structures of the old country. “We enjoy our independence and freedom” was the assertive statement of the Bachelor Girls Social Club, a group of female mail-order clerks in New York.
The importance of reading The Great Gatsby is shown through how the women were treated in the 1920s through their status of the women caring about wealth and acceptance, and how the women use their beauty as an advantage in order to live a better life, and their unique personalities and attitudes of the women reflect and construct the American Dream. All ranks of social status are read in the novel from the women in the novel, there is a gap of wealth and acceptance. How their differences creates hope within citizens of Americans that the dream is possible. How Daisy was born into a wealthy family and her status represents the goal of the American Dream that everyone wants to achieve. This also interpret the American dream by not working hard for it, and how Daisy is lucky to be born into a wealthy family and she did not have to do the hard work.
This was an exciting breakout for women as they were finally allowed to express themselves again and show their personality through fashion. Women had been in the dark during the depression era and these female role models brought the fashion industry back to life. This new elegant style was yet another form of expression for women because it was a new and innovative stylistic decision that many women supported. This was yet another trend that helped women form a mindset that was focused on the individual and their unique portrayal and presentation. This was important for the continuation of self-expression through fashion because it allowed women to see the different styles that could emerge in even short spans of time
The article entitled “Breaking the Glass Ceiling: African American Women in Management Positions,” written by author Aparna Mitra (2003), explains the labor market status of African-American women in supervisory and management jobs (Mitra, 2003). As the study progresses Mitra includes different problems that these women may face in the workplace. One particular table in this article shows how Black women can have a better education, and still receive a smaller pay wage compared to White women and Black men. Another problem included in this study is the fact that while there are women in supervisory and management positions, only a small percentage is African-American (2003). As Mitra identified the different problems these women face, the study concludes with the claim that these women are subjected to both racial and gender discrimination in the workplace.
The age of the Alpha-female is upon us. Women wanting equality leads them to work. As a result, women now contributing in a household in more ways than the average housewife could. The impact not only occurred within the working female, but to people. Work has projected inner positivity that has led to the strong independent women.
Government officials and corporate recruiters urged women to take jobs in defense industries, creating a new image of the working women. "Rosie the Riveter" was one cartoon used by these companies to persuade women to join the work force. Because of this, many women abandoned what they thought of as "women 's work" and began work in factories as airplane riveters, ship welders, and drill press operators. Women became 36% of the work force, a rise from the past 24
This is due to the fact that “for wealthy planter families, educated daughters reflected positively on their social status” (McMillen 91). They often took classes “to enhance their social graces and elite status” (McMillen 91). Classes like this were often music, dance, and embroidery. It was thought that mothers needed an education to fulfill their role properly. They should know how to read and be exposed to the world around them to be good examples to their children and be better companions for their husbands.
That statement helped bring women out of being just “homemakers” and helped them turn into respected professionals. This movement helped women become their own individual, have their own voice and express it as well as being involved in social issues; allowing them to pursue jobs in fields such as nursing and make changes within the profession. That in turn helped the profession
