When looking back at the book that Gilman wrote and re examining the quote, “Investigate, educate, legislate”, it seems blatantly obvious that Gilman was a muckraker. She investigated the men and how they treated the women because of the men’s higher standing, she was able to educate by writing a fantasy story about one woman when that one woman represented almost every woman in the progressive era. Lastly she was then able to legislate because as you can see in our society today, there really is no one dominant gender and there certainly aren’t very many different gender roles in our society. Men and women are treated equally in today’s society. I’m not saying that Gilman’s story was the reason why
Before the Women 's Rights reforms, American women were discriminated in society, home life, education, and the workforce. As a result of the Women 's Rights Movement, women gained the right to vote, access to higher education and opportunities to enter the workforce, overall changing the femmine life for the better. Women in the 1800s were stripped of their voice, not only were they unable to vote, they were often kept from speaking openly in public. Their lack of rights left them dependent on men (Bonnie and Ruthsdotter). The American Women were voiceless, they had no say in society, however the reform movement would change that.
Jaila Sargent Mrs. La Rue Research Paper 28 February, 2018 The Life of Women in the 1930s Women in the 1930s always had to lower the costs on thing because there was not a lot of money to go around for all women. Women had to start groups. Women who were married had to be in the married-women group and single women had to be in the all-single women name. It was not the right thing for all the women. Married women and single women wanted to work together but people did not let them.
Women had always been considered lesser than man, and had few rights compared to men. They were expected to stay home and nurture the family. In 1848, many women refused to allow their rights to be “compromised” and held the first women’s rights convention in Seneca Falls, New York. One of these women was Elizabeth Cady Stanton. She played a huge role in the women’s rights movement and became one of its founders.
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
E. This relates to the topic because it shows that the women feel like they need to stand up for each other against men. Conclusion "Medea" criticizes the male dominated society. It criticizes what a small role women play in society even if they have great abilities, what little power women have, and how unfair it is that men can do what they want while women cannot. I find this interesting because it seems so modern, women all over the world still struggle with the problems that the women in Medea did. Euripides, and C.A.E Luschnig.
Women have more freedom in America than in Annawadi, but this right had to be fought for and still to this day there are still some inequalities in the workplace because of people with a fixed mindset that a woman's job is to stay at home and do all the cleaning. These kinds of stereotypes have made women fight against the prejudices by joining the military, acquiring government positions, and even becoming chief executive officers of a company. These rights were not handed to them as they had to fight for them, but both kinds of women share the similarity of being considered second class citizens instead of first class citizens. The women in America do not need to fight for scraps of food or work harsh labors to survive as they just have to worry about studying to have a better
Though most countries do allow voting, certain countries such as Russia, Cuba and North Korea have a predetermined ballot - they have voting at face value but the voting of the citizens tends to have no influence whatsoever in who leads their country. Women especially should be thankful for this opportunity considering a century ago, women petitioned, marched, were arrested, went on hunger strikes, boycotted censuses and even died because they believed in the fundamental importance of the right to vote; women of today owe it to them to not squander their sacrifices, but to make full use of the right that they fought so hard for. Citizens of the United States are exceptionally lucky and should be incredibly grateful that they have the freedom vote as well as to have influence over their country’s government considering that few countries do not have the same freedom of choice like American citizens
Being a girl is hard, women have been the second best since the beginning of time, women weren’t allowed to do a man's job in the military and it’s time that further evolves into women and men doing all of the same jobs. Although, some may argue that keeping women protected from the harsh realities of war is the reasonable thing to do and those people have a valid argument when they say women aren’t emotionally stable enough to fight on the front lines, or that women aren’t strong enough to serve; this applies to some women not all. Women have proven themselves capable of so much more than the standard that is set for them in the military: overcoming their physical differences and putting the excuses to rest. The excuses about being a distraction to men and that women are going to be prioritized over fighting. The military makes us believe that everyone in the military is treated
Women during the time wouldn't receive any education at all unless they are nuns or have converted to nuns they would then be able to receive decent amount of education. Middle ages marriages in lower social classes as in peasants are usually arranged by their parents.After marriage most of the women would dress more plain to not to draw any attraction to herself.
