While Democracy was being practiced in Colonial America, it has had its dark side as well. Almost to balance out the good in what is happening, everything needs a balance in life. So, what makes the Democracy in Colonial America have undemocratic features are the voting and the treatment of African Americans and Women in the colonies. The voting which happened in America, "which is stated in document 2, shows us that only Christian white males were the only ones who could vote." This is not a democracy, if only a certain group could vote and they leave out the women, African Americans, and other ethnic groups out. But it is what life was back then, mostly the women stayed at home and the men do the work and all of the other important things.
“The Yellow Wallpaper” written by Charlotte Perkins Gilman in 1892 at the height of the Victorian era is often mistaken as a feminist short story. She tries to tell its readers how women have been confined in this “domestic role” since the beginning of time. The narrator uses the wallpaper to represent the society she lives in. Not only does the wallpaper affect the narrator, but also it influences everyone that meets it. And how these roles ultimately will drive any woman insane. Men dominated the workplace and was head of his household that was just what life was back then. In earlier centuries, it was unusual for a woman to work alongside men.
Humans have always had a unique perspective on gender roles. Throughout history, women have somehow became less superior to men. There are multiple variables to how and why this came to be. Whether it was the agriculture revolution, influential literature, or even climate events from the Mesopotamian civilization, males have managed to be more dominant. There has also been harmful sexism perspectives passed down each generation that could have triggered what women can and cannot do. However based upon evidences drawn by numerous historian writers, there are answers to why women roles have somehow been overlooked.
It is better not to give birth than to have a baby girl as a child. This was an idea that took place way back in the past of Asian culture countries. Boys were tremendously preferred than girls and girls were thought and treated valueless and useless. This ideology is now considered old-fashioned and improper, however, the same concept still lies in the society. In human society, there always have been certain gender roles. Ever since the primitive age, gender roles existed: men went outside to hunt animals and search for food when women stayed inside to take care of babies and cook. Women were hugely dependent on men in survival. As time passed and many societal ideas changed through time, gender roles have changed as well. Women became more

In the Gilded age or the start of the industrial era, women and children were forced to leave their homes and try and get jobs in factories that were fit for them. This era created many new job opportunities than before. The number of women who now had actual jobs had increased drastically. Even though all these jobs had opened up women were only seen fit to do small tasks such as desk jobs that require little knowledge and skill to be able to do. Women forced into the work force tended to be poorer struggling individuals whose children were bound to labor as well. The parents of these children would send them to work in hope to increase their families incomes. As a result of the new increase of child and women's labor the conditions for working
Back in time, women were not treated the same way as they are today. Education was not a basic right for women. In fact they usually had no education whatsoever. Women had the job of running the household. They were to stay home, do housework, cook for their husbands, and raise their children. Although they held the responsibility to raise their
Feminism: the advocacy of women 's rights on the basis of the equality of the sexes.
Throughout the time period that takes place within 혛혩혦혪혳 혌혺혦혴 혞혦혳혦 혞혢혵혤혩혪혯혨 혎혰혥, women are incessantly viewed as the weaker sex. From the very beginning, Nanny believes that Janie is too fragile to take care of herself, and therefore forces her to marry Logan Killicks. Moreover, in Janie 's marriages with both Logan and Joe, Janie is expected to believe that her self-worth depends on the men. This is shown when Logan tells her, "You ain 't got no particular place. It 's wherever Ah need yuh" (31), and when Joe remarks, "Somebody got to think for women... they sho don 't think none theirselves" (71). To both Logan and Joe, Janie should be nothing but an obedient piece of arm candy for them to order around when needed. They never let her make decisions for herself, because they feel that, since she is a woman, they have control over her. However, when Janie is with Tea Cake, she willingly works in the muck with the other men, finally disproving the believed stereotype that women are weak and gaining confidence for herself.
During Chino’s final year at Art and Design, he was introduced to futurist who Chino wanted to do what they did as well help rekindle culture since it was dead.So they wanted to start everything from a base.Chino felt that even though they were from upper middle class, he still could relate the anger they felt even if Chino was lower class.Chino wanted to reinvent himself so he can have a better life than his parents had.This is when Chino is introduced to being more aware of his environment that he started to notice his community needed to be upgraded.

It is apparent that males have always been seen as the dominant and tough gender, while females are seen as the submissive and weak. Males would be the ones to do all the hard labor and work as professionals like business men bringing food to the table while women were expected to stay home, cook and clean for the husband after a long day of work. It was frowned upon if the women ever took the position of man, as it made the male look like the “weak” one. These are the gender roles that have set up the way of living for the longest time. It has never been challenged until recent years, mainly around the World War II era. Women started to take the roles of man, surpassing them in a variety of ways, education, rank in a workforce, etc. Men are now taking “feminine” profession such as nursing and teaching. This is now becoming the norm, showing that it doesn't matter who works and who brings food to the
America the brave, wasn’t so beautiful during its early years. It hasn’t always been the land of the free like how it was instilled in us when we were children. I’ve grown up thinking that America had been such a place. There was countless times that America was faced with making decisions that were incredibly undemocratic. For instance , Women’s rights, religious freedom, and rights for slaves were virtually nonexistent. Occasionally the colonist made the right choices like indentured servants, who were people that worked for a certain amount of time then were allowed to go.People don’t know the truth about the unhinged history of Colonial America.
Cook, clean, child raising, ect. A housewife.

But also the respect they deserve.
While the note does state that the work is strictly fiction, there are many indicators that the stories that are conveyed are likely, in some way, real experiences. The note stating that the book is entirely fictional, aside from the details that directly relate to the authors experience feels contrived, and at the very least will pull many readers out of the emotional connections created. It is important for any reader to enter into this with the foreknowledge that this is a work of fiction, which means that the vast majority of the information can not be counted as historically
Women 's roles have altered and developed over the past 200 years. In the United States, changes from an agriculture based life to an industrialized economy impacted women 's roles greatly. When a family 's support was based upon a farm, then both the male and female had specific jobs to keep it running. However, the male 's job was deemed more important. In most cases, the female was meant to be obedient and submissive to her husband. Despite the United States being built on freedom, it was white men who had all of the rights. When the US became a more industrialized nation, women worked in factories and therefore were given more financial responsibility. This responsibility was given to them though their rights remained limited. With a
