As one can see, many mothers in today 's society would not be nearly as picky and constructive as the mother within "Girl" written by Jamaica Kincaid. Young girls almost always look up first to their mother for guidance and instruction on how to be a woman.

How does one limit their reasoning of how Oprah Winfrey has changed their lives. I would like to start with the fact of how she has shown me that women can be just as powerful as men.

The second important role was Ida B. Wells. She was in Holly Springs, Mississippi in 1862 as a slave.

I was not aware of all of Dr. Mary Harper’s accomplishments and great work that she did over her life time, but I do remember being in middle school and there were discussions about her as well as national acknowledgements. This documentary was extremely beneficial and interesting to me, just for the simple fact that she is an outstanding role model for the African American community. My first impression of Dr. Harper I immediately noticed that she was extremely determined and hard working. I started to replay my education and I started to wonder why I was just now learning so much about her?

Elizabeth Cady Stanton is one example of these women. She was a leader and a reformer who worked for more than a half-century to obtain voting rights for women in the United States, and she also questioned the social and political views on women of her day.
