In the renaissance period, the status and the presentation of women was oppressive and restrictive. Women were allowed to enjoy very few economic and political rights and acted submissively in front of their fathers and husbands. They were forced to remain in the domestic part of their society. Their roles as daughters, mothers and wives were considered significant in the renaissance age. Their reproductive capabilities was extremely important for inheritances and for maintaining the family line.
I think that women today have the ability to be exactly who or what they want to be thanks to Elizabeth. According to most people during Elizabeth’s lifetime, not much was really expected from women, and many of them were content with those thoughts. Elizabeth (not working alone) was a huge part of what
Not only was weslaco like an important person, but it was also the place where many significant events occurred that made the individual I am. Growing up with one brother and sister, we were all raised by a single mother. She worked too hard to give us just enough. She was an immigrant just like my siblings and I, so her getting a job was difficult. From cleaning houses to babysitting kids, my exhausted mother would still make the effort to comfort all of us.
Woman go through a lot to be judge, belittled, or stressed. Woman shouldn’t be afraid to express their selves and feel like they don’t have enough power not to say a word. We all should be equal and shouldn’t be judge for our genders. I honestly feel like any women who went through the things Asante went through and is able to make a better person out of their selves and as strong as the next person. This author MK Asante wrote this book to let viewers see no matter what situation you’re in you can always get out and make yourself
Susan B. Anthony was a great leader during the Women’s Rights Movement, and she was a role model to all women that she encountered. Susan B. Anthony was an effective leader that many people followed including more women followers, leaving an impact on these people’s lives. Susan B. Anthony was a suffragist, abolitionist, author, lecturer, public speaker and a dedicated writer; during the time in history, women could not have a say in politics or legal matters. Although, Anthony did become the president of the National American Women Suffrage Association. Anthony was the type of leader that everyone wanted to follow in her footsteps.
It is a story that could actually happen. In the story, Jane expresses concerns about her mental health to her husband, John, a doctor, who through good intentions and believing that he is doing the right thing, requires that his wife stays in bed all the time, and not do any of the things she would normally or would like to do. Due to being bed ridden, Jane becomes worse until she reached the limit and goes crazy. John’s behavior and decisions at this time were considered to be completely normal. The Yellow Wallpaper is considered to fall in the genre of realism because it represents the way life was for women during the nineteenth century.
For example Anthony says, “but this oligarchy of sex, which makes father, brothers, husband, sons, the oligarchs over the mother and sisters, the wife and daughters, of every household” This is very sad since women and girls should not be ruled or told what to do because they are thought of to be less than man. The constitution is in place to have a unified country not to have an oligarchy of men lead households. The pathos appeal is used to show what suffering women are going through due to men ruling them, and not knowing how to fight back. Susan B. Anthony in her speech also says, “Are women persons?.....and no state has the right to make a law, or to enforce an old law, that shall abridge their privileges and immunities.”, which also connects with the emotions of the audience. She is trying to make people feel bad that women are treated less even though they are just as righteous as men to have the same privileges.
The fact that men carelessly throw women to the side as if it was nothing shows the oppression of women during the time-period. Instead of confronting the tinker about his cruel action, Elisa hides behind her husband’s back to avoid any conflict. The coward-ness of Elisa portrays the lack of equality and as well as showing signs of vulnerability in a woman. Overall, from the barred windows and gates that lock, to the isolation of living in the valley, both men from each story uses at least one type of restraint on the two women, which allows them to spiral out of
Her other wifely duties bring her no excitement, only disappointment. The gender set rules hinder Edna’s character in many ways. These norms limit her freedom, but more importantly, it compels her to feel trapped within a society bound by expectations. Furthermore, it influences her outlook on life and perhaps the state of her personal life, which causes her to be more self- involved. And if this selfishness continues, it may be detrimental to her family and herself.
The Scarlet Letter and Easy A are the stories of women who defy their societies. Hester, of The Scarlet Letter commits adultery but refuses to reveal Dimmesdale or Chillingworth in order to both men from public humiliation. Hester is forced to bear the burden of her punishment alone, while her partner is held up as saintly. Olive, of Easy A, pretends to sleep with various boys in order to protect them from bullying and to boost their social statuses and inadvertently gives herself a bad reputation in doing so. Because both Hester and Olive defy their society’s views of femininity, they are ostracized by their unforgiving and judgemental societies as sinners; however, both women are actually saints who through their good deeds improve their
This sends the wrong message to women of the time. It makes it seems as if taking abuse is ok if its from your lover. Abuse appears throughout the book, but never shows the truly horrid side. The women don’t show any signs of long-term signs of abuse such as depression or physical injuries. It seems they get hit or yelled at and don’t sustain any long-term

Meanwhile women on the other hand have to lay boundaries for themselves and only be limited to their husbands or in the handmaid 's case their commanders. Although society can be good in many ways such as today’s society but it can also be very bad and not progress forward but instead backwards. The Handmaid’s Tale has shown many examples of a corrupt and bad society where women are back to being downgraded such as they were before a really long time
In the excerpt, Polly points out that women are punished for doing their "God-given duty," which, according to the community, is to reproduce. Polly argues that while women are tried, fined, and publicly humiliated for having children out of wedlock, men remain unconvicted for going against nature, meaning they do not marry or have children. This is an instance of a double standard that Polly points out because although bachelors are truly the ones that should be blamed for the abnormality of their actions, women are the ones who face the consequences for having children, whom are needed in
