During the “New Girl” Era, women in Germany suffered discrimination because of the fact that they were not men. They lived in an era that was almost entirely run by men. Women were given less job opportunities and were finally given women’s rights, but were not able to fully use them because they were still restricted from doing many things. This lead to Hannah’s creations of her photomontages that were inspired by her social and political views on this era. Hannah created “The Beautiful Girl” around 1919
The women in the urban areas of Katherine Boo’s novel Behind the Beautiful Forever seems to hold more freedom than of the women in the village. Women in America have more freedom than the women not only in Annawadi, but of as well as the rest of the world in terms of having the freedom to choose their husband and career path. Even though American women have more freedom there is still a long hurdle to overcome. A woman must fight against the injustices in a workplace and in society. In general, American women must feel lucky to live in America because of the opportunities that are offered to them.
One of the major goals of the civil rights movement was not only to make all people equal but to give women more rights. In the United States, women were not treated equally and they weren 't able to do the types of things men were allowed to do. Today, women and men are given the same rights. Abigail Adams changed the way society looked at women. Without Abigail Adams, it might have took longer for women to get rights of maybe not even at all.
The main argument of Laura Dean-Mooney is that the 21 law saves lives because the number of people killed in crashes since the law was enacted has been cut in half. The number of crashes “ has been cut in half, from more than 5,000 individuals in the early 1980s to around 2,000 in 2005”(Dean Mooney 5). Another argument made was that the effects of alcohol are magnified when a teenager’s brain is still developing, “alcohol negatively affects all parts of the brain, include cognitive and decision-making abilities as well as coordination and memory”(Dean-Mooney 9). Dean-Mooney implies that since the legal drinking age has been 21, this law is the most studied in history. She highlights that scientific studies found the 21-year-old law saves lives on and off the road.
Eva Smith is the perfect example to show the audience that you might not be affected by this but someone might be and you will be the blame for it. “but I felt rotten about it at the time and now I feel a lot worse.” Sheila said this because she actually felt really bad and to blame for this girl’s death unlike the rest of her family except Eric. People were put into social classes according to their wealth, jobs and success. The upper class families don’t care about others with low class and are shown to be more powerful at that time. The high class families always had the power even though they were the same as the others but more successful,
Women’s rights and the way they live has changed greatly over the course of time. Back in the day, women did not have equal rights to men and they had to face many challenges in order to receive the jobs they wanted. Nowadays, women can get the same jobs as men and their power is much more appreciated. The 1930’s affected women in a positive way over time as they tried to work their way up in government positions, obtain more profitable jobs, and help provide for their families; but they still had a long ways to go getting equal rights to men. Women realized that they did not need men to be successful, therefore, they decided to become more self-reliant.Some women in the 1930s decided to stay single in hopes to become self- reliant (Working
The money came from ‘contributions’, not always willingly given, from businesses and unions. Eva became more popular with the poor masses, but far less popular with the elite. She further angered the elite with her active campaign for female suffrage in 1947, largely due to the energy and soul that she poured into the campaign (Fraser and
It was common for men to outnumber women, which is what caused these laws to be put into place. “Shortage of women made them more valued than in Europe, and the Puritan emphasis on well-ordered family life led to laws protecting wives from physical abuse and allowing for divorce.” (George Brown Tindall, 113) Also colonial laws were formed to allow wives more control over property that they contributed or inherited after the death of their husbands. (George Brown Tindall, 113) Nevertheless, even with these slight improvements men were still seen as being superior to women. Which also influenced women’s roles in
As the lecture notes, “middle class women reaped most of the benefits of what they advocated for in politics, education, and overall social reform.” It makes sense that he changes that were occurring forced those impacted the greatest to changes and adopt policies more favorable to women.

The intersectionality of our gender identities impacted the profession that women sought after since profession like lawyers and doctors were closed off to women. As poor working class person regardless of being a women or not often times you could find yourself being employed in an under paid and underwhelming job based exclusively on
As a result, the most vital contribution of NAWSA was helping women win the rights to vote. The new reforms in Progressive Era brought advantages to all the workers but also brought disadvantages to those greedy bosses and corrupt politicians. Along with the exposure of the bad conditions, business monopolies, and the low wages of workers, government took steps to prevent these phenomenons and to protect workers’ rights, and that also reduced the profits of the bosses. And lots of political reforms generated to cut off the corruption from the root, common citizens was given a greater voice, and the politician machine got hurt which means that they couldn’t get the assistances. Progressive Era is important in US history, it brought better lives to people and justice to the
This inequality was controversial and stimulated women 's desire for more freedoms including the right to dress the same as men. They wanted independence and to have a voice to speak out and show that they were strong. Although women were not considered equal to men, they could perform jobs just as well, and sometimes even better. Women wanted to wear pants for work and also for leisure wear. This new desire for different clothing was a major change in tone for the era as women’s clothing was previously restricted to dress wear.
Those who are taught how to handle alcohol and are educated about its effects show to be more responsible in the long term aspect. Those who are also exposed to alcohol at an earlier age and grow up in a controlled environment and showed moderation in their drinking are far less likely to face problems of abuse. “A European Union study shows that the countries where moderate daily drinking is the norm like, Spain, Italy, and France, have the fewest binge drinkers at 2 percent, 2 percent and 8 percent, compared to 34 percent in Ireland and 27 percent in Finland, who were not exposed to moderate use” (“Lowering”.). Those who have grown up with alcohol and structure know the responsibility and do not abuse it or depend on it. Using alcohol is a right that one should have the right to choose whether to use it or
