Naden khaled Ms. Amanda 11C 22/2/2017 Women’s Education and Jobs in The Antebellum Era Although women in the antebellum era were far from seen as equal american citizens, many changes happened that affected the way that the community looks at women. From nothing to schools that helped them learn and help them get a bigger opportunity. Despite how great women are now, long ago they didn’t have the right to work or even to go to schools. Women were expected to sit at home take care of the kids and maybe take care of a farm if she had one. Before the civil war women had somewhat of an education.
Although it is debatable, Elizabeth I is known to be England's greatest ruler. " Good Queen Bess", as her people called her, dealt with England's countless amount of problems. She was judged "unfit to rule without a husband nor successor. Having no husband made people dispute over her right to the throne. This did not change her decision about never getting married, she continued to rule without a husband.
I believe she was confident because in paragraph 12 it states,” She crowned herself pharaoh with the large red and white double crown.” Hatshepsut had to be confident to crown herself pharaoh especially that a female pharaoh was not even heard of in ancient egypt. Previously stated in paragraph 9 it states,”It was a job, perhaps just fifteen years old had been training for since her earliest days by her father's side.” This shows she must be confident to be taking such an important role only fifteen years old. In conclusion Hatshepsut was very confident and bold in her decisions which made her a great pharaoh.

During Progressive Era, there were many reforms that occurred, such as Child Labor Reform or Pure Food and Drug Act. Women Suffrage Movement was the last remarkable reform. This movement was fighting about the right of women to vote, which was basically about women’s right movement. Many great leaders – Elizabeth Cad Stanton and Susan B. Anthony - formed the National American Women Suffrage Association (NAWSA). Although those influential leaders faced hardship during this movement, they never gave up and kept trying their best.
The book Eleanor the Queen written by Norah Lofts takes place around the years 1147-1192 in Western Europe. In the book, Eleanor accompanies her first husband Louis on the second crusade. She also experiences sexism and discrimination with both of her husbands. Along the way she fights for her rights and while doing that she gets imprisoned for speaking her mind. Norah Lofts’ book Eleanor the Queen, accurately describes Eleanor's role in women's rights while being in a royal marriage, and also accurately describes the second crusade that was led by Louis, the king of France and was accompanied by Eleanor of Aquitaine.
As so eloquently said by Andrew Carnegie, “Teamwork is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results.” This quote is asserting the fact that in order for a healthy marriage to be successful, one spouse cannot have dominance over the other. The Wife of Bath was a well travelled woman who had a past of having several different husbands. Therefore, she had a noticeably refined view of marriage.
“Rather than face a possible five-year jail sentence, Sanger fled to England. While there, she worked in the women’s movement and researched other forms of birth control” (“Margaret Sanger”). Still, in the most stressful of times, Margaret Sanger was unremitting and determined to make a difference. Through all of her trials and tribulations, she was astounding in her unending efforts.

Medieval Times were covered in deceit and secrecy and one of the main duties of a Queen in the Middle Ages was to help the King and other nobility find ways to spy on rivals, start conflicts or wars or simply spread important gossip through the country.

Eleanor was a powerful and wealthy woman in Western Europe during the middle ages she married twice and had a total of 10 kids. To become a queen in the middle ages she had to acquire it through marriage or less commonly inheritance.
Women have played an important role throughout history but haven’t really been credited as much as they really should have been. Although women haven’t usually been in a position of power (because they were not allowed to be in a that position), they have still done a lot to contribute in crucial ways. For example Empress Theodora of the Byzantine empire though 527 and 548 A.D, Queen Elizabeth I of the queen of England and Ireland from 1558 to 1603.
