During this time many magazines and advertisements pushed the image that women were supposed to be happy housewives, with a white picket fence, and kissing their husbands off to work. In Friedan’s piece she stated, “And the women’s magazines, deploring the unhappy statistics about these young marriages, urged that courses on marriage, and marriage counselors, be installed in the high schools” (p. 10). This shows that America was pushing for women in this age to marry young and produce children even if she is unhappy with her marriage. Betty Friedan’s stance on this lifestyle for women was that is was destructive to a woman’s identity and belief in herself. In her piece she interviewed a woman who stated, “I begin to feel I have no personality.
The Act of Uniformity mandated the attendance of religion in the nation and created punishments for failure to appear loyal to the Anglican church.

Ruth states, “In Ruth’s early life she had to go through tough situations that ultimately shaped her to be the women she became (217)” She began to have hope in something bigger than her and this pushed her to get on for her life for her and for Dennis. “I started to become a Christian and the Jew in me began to die (218).” She felt as if her life as a Jew died when her mother died and this is because the only thing that held her back as an actual Jew was her mother. Ruth loved her mother no matter what and to see her go hurt her really bad, but believing in Christianity opened the doors for her future gave her something to hold on to as things were only going to get harder in her marriage. Being an interracial couple in the 60’s was not socially okay; infact they feared people would separate them at times, but they knew God would stay by their side and protect
The national Democratic Party’s ambivalent position towards abortion drove many evangelicals and fundamentalist Christians into the Republican camp, whom became an important part of the party’s base of support. Reversing a pattern of nearly forty years of official party support, the Republican Party became increasingly more pro-life while the more liberal Democratic Party became strongly pro-choice (Adams 1997). As it is seen in modern presidential races today, the polarization is almost complete. It is almost impossible for a pro-life Democrat or a pro-choice Republican to advance within the American political system. In the nation as a whole, opinion has remained consistently deadlocked, and abortion will continue to be a divisive issue in the United States for many years to
Terry Barone, spokesman of the California Southern Baptist Convention, said that JC 's Girls members "are doing what Jesus did ... He ministered to prostitutes and tax collectors. " JC 's Girls members have been criticized for dressing like sex workers, a look that Veitch said is intended to help women in the sex industry identify with the group. A Baptist minister from San Bernardino, California criticized JC 's Girls for not explicitly encouraging women in the sex industry to quit, and quoted Matthew 6:24, a Bible verse that states that a person cannot serve two masters. In response to the idea that strippers should quit their jobs before attending a church, Veitch said, "Do we ask gluttons to stop eating too much before they come to church?
During the mid-1800s the roles of women were considered to only be taking care of the children and the home. Only 1 in 5 women worked for wages in the workplace. Two women who fought actively for Women’s Rights were Sarah and Angelina Grimke. Angelina published An Appeal to Christian Women of the South, which told women “to overthrow this horrible system of oppression and cruelty”. Few men supported the women’s efforts for equal rights but they still continued to fight by holding national conventions.

In comparison to Bradstreet’s style was Phillis Wheatley, who wrote with a genuine spirit, straight forward simplicity, and was direct. Wheatley first found her fame with the poem “On the Death of the Rev. Mr. George Whitefield,” in 1770. Eulogies were very popular at the time and her work found attention in England as well as America. Examples of Wheatley’s sincerity can be found in all of her work, because she wrote from the heart and in a way that all men and women could connect to her work.

In both the cases of France and the Holy Roman Empire, two countries that experienced a great deal of violence during the Reformation era, religious upheaval played a more visible role than political tensions and, in general, countries that experienced less religious upheaval were more stable and therefore, experienced less violence. Therefore, although political tensions contributed to the great violence between 1300 and 1600, religious upheaval was a greater cause. Religious conflict between the Huguenots and Catholics were the linchpin of the French Wars of Religion. Although Francis I initially supported the Protestants as a political ploy against the Holy Roman Emperor; his conciliatory actions ended and the Parlement of Paris began

Catharine also helped establish other colleges in Burlington, Iowa, Illinois, and Wisconsin.
