The campaign is an important part in the race to the White House, and the involvement of the first lady is a huge part of it. Today, the first lady has to campaign nearly as extensively as her husband, for the position (Diller and Robertson 145). The first lady is more than the wife to the President. She is a woman of poise, elegance and influence stemming from the creation of her own image - seen through the eyes of the American
There are numerous past and present women who have been great leaders in our country, as well as many strong women that rule foreign countries. Eleanor Roosevelt was a great leader of the past. She was married to former president Franklin D. Roosevelt. The main reason Roosevelt was such a great leader back in her day was because she took over most of her husband’s duties as president when he had polio attack and was not able to accomplish his duties. Eleanor was very involved in the political world.
Today, millions of women can implement their rights to vote in all elections in the united states of America, but this (rights) did not come easily to those women who sacrifice their lives to make this happen. In the speech “Address to Congress on Women’s Suffrage”, Catt delivered her message for women’s right from a firsthand account of what she had experienced as a woman living in the United States of America in the 19th century. She advocated for the rights of women to vote because she believes in equal rights and justice for all citizens. The speech was very successful because of the use of ethos, pathos, and logos. The purpose of the speech was to pressure Congress into passing a legislation that would give women the right to vote in the United States of America.
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, and it 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. This movement was occurred in New York that has a huge impact on the whole United States.
All people should be treated equally no matter their race, gender, or status therefore this issue is relevant. This matters to me because many women are struggling and not getting treated equally therefore Clinton is fighting for a change. “Too often, these are called women’s issues. Well, I am a proud lifelong fighter for women’s issues, because I firmly believe what’s good for women is good for America. … As far as I’m concerned, any issue that affects women’s lives and futures is a women’s issue.”(https://www.hillaryclinton.com/issues/womens-rights-and-opportunity/) -HILLARY CLINTON, SEPTEMBER 5, 2015 Finally, when voting take in notice and get informed well about your candidates.
Some believe that the march on Washington was the reason of a new and changing time for race relations in the United States of America. Believe it or not the march on Washington helped to validate mass political protest as an adequate means of political persuasion. The march on Washington is looked at as one of the reasons that the Civil Rights Bill was passed, after a long time of waiting the Civil Rights Bill was passed on June 19th, 1964. “The House of Representatives passed the final Senate version on July 2nd, 1964, by a vote of 289-126.” “In 1965, a major voting rights bill was enacted, which would greatly increase the enfranchisement of Southern
It wasn 't until the 1960’s that this nation’s women, American women, were sick and tired of being objects and decided to stand up and fight back. In may of 1869 Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton formed the National Woman Suffrage Association (Women 's). That moment changed the simple Thought of what women were forever.

As Mrs. Obama’s latest initiative, she introduce “Let Girls Learn” to help girls go to school and stay with help from the U.S. government and calling all countries around the globe to to educate their young women and inspire to commit to their education. As Obama became first lady of the united states she became a fashion icon and inspired women across the world by her great style. Michelle Obama is a very influential powerful women.
American Cinema has also opened up a new world for those, who were formally thought, to be behind a cooking stove or ironing board. American Cinema did more than just create jobs and movie stars for our leading ladies of our great nation. American Cinema let the nation see keys roles played by woman in the history of our country. The 1979 film, Norma Rae, helped put in perspective the involvement of women in our labor right movement and establishing unions for our workers. The 1980 film, The Life and Times of Rosie the Riveter, was able to open many eyes to how important women were in our entry to World War II.
Eleanor Roosevelt is quoted as saying “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” Eleanor Roosevelt dreamed of a world full of democracy and equality for all peoples. She believed in her dreams and thus helped change the world and the future. As political leader in her own right, Eleanor used her influence to advance noble causes. A remarkable women, diplomat, humanitarian, politician, and activist, Eleanor Roosevelt worked tirelessly to improve the lives of minorities. Whether teaching immigrant children, holding women only press conferences, or sitting in the middle of the aisle separating black and white, Eleanor Roosevelt practised what she preached — and she preached equality.
I chose to write about Hillary Rodham Clinton because I think she can make America great again, and because I think we are stronger together. What I mean is that, she has far more rational plans to make America a better place for everyone. She knows how to lead people, and she has a vast experienced in politics. Many people do not like her, due to her past mistakes. But she’s human, human tend to make mistakes and no one is perfect.
The Power of Words In Danielle Kurtzleben’s With “Fake News,” Trump Moves Alternative Facts To Alternative Language she depicts a chilling conclusion. The power that one person can have over a large population of people is incredible, dangerous, and mind-blowing. What also raises concerns is the public’s response to this one person, President Donald Trump. Ever since Trump started his campaign he seemed to know exactly what to say and how to say it. He very quickly won most of the public over even if some of his ideas were absurd.
Before the New Deal Era, there was not much to be heard about first ladies, or what they did to improve the country. But with Eleanor, she was truly a monumental example, and became the model of first ladies today. The book states, “she often urged the president to take stands on controversial issues” (The Americans). This, in my opinion is an understatement to what she truly did. She showed interest, in children’s welfare, women’s and minorities rights, and the housing reform, which at the time posed to be very pressing and controversial matters.
The Republican party is notorious for their Pro-Life beliefs, abstinence-only sex-education, anti-contraception, and anti-abortion and their support of President Trump only encourages the reversal of laws and amendments meant to provide equality. Conclusion Thankfully, there are millions of people willing to stand up for what is right. The massive turn out for the Women’s March in Washington D.C., all over the country and around the world on January 21, 2017, has demonstrated that the fight for equality and women’s rights will continue. There are several organizations and groups committed to the defense, including Women Human Rights Defenders, Senator Bernard Sanders, National Organization for Women, Planned Parenthood, Equality Now, and much
The American Revolution was a turning point for the nation, displaying the impact of what started as small colonies believing wholeheartedly in independence for the people and being victorious through many tribulations. Considering women during the eighteenth century, who had the conventional status of housework and taking care of the family shifted to what was only considered a ‘man 's job’ after the Revolution. Women contributed greatly to the victory of the American Revolution; changed by protesting British goods, becoming nurses, fighting on the battlefield, the action took on the homefront, and thus gaining more independence afterward for greater opportunities. Without the diligent service of women this independent nation could not be what
