«We want to end gender inequality, and to do this, we need everyone involved.» Miss Watson’s speech shows that even though many of us believe that current generation lives in truly emancipated era, this is not true. Even though we live in the era of gender and racial ‘equality’ the issue of sex inequality is still ‘on’ and still not resolved. Emma Watson’s speech has inspired many women as well as men. It also has inspired me to shift my focus from the influence of David Hume’s text on the E.H. Carr, to the role of feminism and women during the period of Enlightenment. This essay claims that even though advocates of ‘loose’ women, David Hume in this case, were active throughout the Enlightenment, the Enlightenment failed to be era of feminism Firstly, let me address the question of the location of the Enlightenment and the oppressed women in this work.
However, during this period, the Egyptian government also borrowed allot from European countries for internal improvements; when the price of cotton fell, Egypt had already borrowed money to the point of bankruptcy in 1876. As a consequence, a group of European states (mainly the British and French) established a debt repayment agency called the "Caisse de la Dette," monitoring Egypt's revenue. The main resource that the British empire wanted from Egypt was its cotton Egypt had allot of it and a very good quality of it. The Suez Canal was called the lifeline of their empire because it was the most important route for the British because it made it easier for its trading routes and transporting goods by sea from their other colonized country India back to their home country Section
Virginia Woolf 's extended essay, A Room of One 's Own explores the social implications of gender and authorship. Through her partially fictionalized narrative, Woolf examines the spaces for women in fiction - both historical and contemporary - to move the reader through a succession of images meant to focus their attention on women 's potential in the creative sphere. Despite the fact that Woolf 's A Room of One 's Own was published in the wake of women 's suffrage and thus embodies contemporary cultural concerns surrounding gender, it was not considered an inherently feminist text by herself or her critics. And yet, the legacy of Woolf 's essay has allowed it to stand in as a touchstone of feminist literary criticism for almost a century. Officially published in 1929, A Room of One 's Own was built out of a series of lectures on women in writing presented to audiences at Newnham College and Girton College -
Unfortunately, after many years of agony and disparity, the war for equality has not yet been conquered. This spirit of the constant urge of equality must be rewarded because women deserve the same rights as men. Women are the reason every single human being is alive, regardless, they are still considered as inferiors since the beginning of recorded history, with a few exceptions. One of the United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) is to “promote gender equality and empower women. Although the MDGs were created to raise awareness of the problem, a recent MDG Progress Report indicates that there still remains a huge gap to closing gender equality worldwide.

The exaggeration and fantasization of certain histories has always been prevalent in Western society, however, nothing comes quite as close to being as diluted as the history of ancient Egypt. On a fundamental level, this phenomenon can be defined as Egyptomania: an obsessive interest by Westerners in ancient Egyptian culture, especially during the 19th century. While there is a lot of literature pertaining to Egyptomania in American culture, there is far less that addresses its impact on late 19th century British culture. Though the initial ancient Egyptian archaeological discoveries occurred during the time of Napoleon’s campaigns, most notably the discovery of the Rosetta Stone in 1799, the early 19th century in Britain did not see the same spark in Egyptomania as the late 19th century. This, no doubt, is related to the period of time that Great Britain occupied Egypt.

This meant she was seen as a huge feminist and wrote many books, said many speeches and led many strikes so women would be equal as men, “‘I do not believe that women are better than men. We have not wrecked, nor corrupted legislature, nor done many unholy things that men have done; but then we must remember that we have not had the chance.’- Jane Addams.” (weebly.com). This quote showed how much she believed in equality for all, even for the smallest things. Addams also fought for the improvement of education and so everyone could get a free education. She was even on the Chicago Board of Education to help her make this difference for America.

Until the 1750s the major workers of the East India Company were merchants and politicians in Bengal. After the 1750s along with the merchants, first orientalists have started to come to British India. This period as it is named British Orientalism starts from 1772 to 1835. It was inspired by the needs of the East India Company (1600-1857) to train a class of British administrators who can learn and study the languages, cultures and religions of India. British orientalism officially starts after the arrival of an orientalist and merchant, Warren Hasting, (1732–1818), the first and most famous of the British governors general of India.
