In the 1920’s women went through a lot of changes that made them a free spirit, changes that made them what they are now and having the liberty of being independent. After the Civil War, women were willing to gain the same rights and opportunities as men. The war gave women the chance to be independent, to live for themselves. Women’s anger, passion, and voice to protest about what they were feeling was the reason of making the ratification of the 19th amendment, which consisted of giving women the right to vote. One of the largest advancement of that era was the women’s movement for the suffrage, which gave them the reason to start earning
It is something that will improve the country socially and economically. It would resolve so many issues regarding immigration reform and about all of the young undocumented alien minors in America. It is something that would motivate them even, because they have been given a second chance, which is great then. It will empower them; it will show them that you should never give up and that America after-all. These alien minors will become better-educated, higher-earning workers and taxpayers.
There are a few links between an individual’s identity, self-esteem and self-image. An individual’s identity is them, their age, their name, ethnicity and background, their family, also their language and education. Their self-esteem means how much they actually value themselves and lastly their self-image is how they view themselves or see themselves. If they have no identity, for example if they are afraid of how others might see them this links to a low self-esteem which can lead to social isolation and/or they might suffer from depression, then their self-image may then suffer such as they forget to look after their personal appearance, hygiene and how they used to dress. On the other hand if they are happy and confidence with their identity then the individual is most likely to look after themselves and their personal image more such as the way they look, dress, eat healthily and exercise etc.
Life improved for women in the 1920s because they gained a new freedom in society and they were guaranteed the right to vote, even though they were still considered inferior to men in the workplace. One way how women 's lives improved in the 1920s was because women had new roles in society. A new style for young women called the flapper became extremely popular. Flappers represented the new morals of young women in the 1920s. Hemlines of the dresses were shortened, sleeves and necklines were reduced, and
Due to the invention of modern technology, America has become the melting pot of different cultures and it shows most people are open to becoming cosmopolitan. The invention of technology have given society the ability to communicate with each other from all over the world. Americans have not fully embraced the idea of mutually agreeing about a topic through conversation alone because not every generation of people can see eye to eye. For example, the millennials and the Baby Boomers have two different perspectives on life because of their upbringing and many other factors. There is no peaceful mutual agreement between topics such as abortion, gay marriage or police brutality between the generations.
This movement not only involved with white suffragists, but also with the black suffragists; the whole event was concentrating on sex and racial equality. "As Stanton consistently put it, the republican lesson of the war was that popular sovereignty, the equal political rights of all individuals, preceded and underlay government and nations.... The belief that the right to vote was the individual 's natural right made the case for woman suffrage much stronger." (Dubois, 91) Stanton believed that through the lesion of equal political rights and individual’s natural right made the woman suffrage even stronger. The biggest winner of the whole event is Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton.
People like Rosa Parks led the way for our country to improve for all of its citizens. Despite the hard time period and backlash she received for standing up for herself and other blacks, she is now one of the most admired women we remember in America. Her individualism paved the way for a better life for many
The 1920s was filled with a lot of progression among society. This progression did not leave the women of the 1920s out. Women became more sexually liberated, more women began to work, and women were also given the right to vote. The 1920s are one of the most stereotyped decades in America. Not only were the 1920s stereotyped as a whole, but women we hugely stereotyped.
We are not providing any service in return for the services that our government provides, and many of us are fighting the benefits we are receiving. It is time that our nation rises together and appreciates that efforts that the current administration has taken. The American dream is achievable for every person in this great nation, but only if we allow ourselves to achieve
This is my reality because Addams worked hard to make America evolve when problems like child labor first appeared during the Progressive Era. She used her intelligence to get government officials and poor immigrants alike listen to her instead of dismissing her ideas because she was a woman and wealthy. I hope that one day more women will be as strong willed and confident as Addams, because if she was able to make such big changes in a time when women were not considered equals, imagine what amazing changes women today could
