How has equality become such an impact on modern times? In recent years, there has been worldwide debate on the rights of different genders, races, and sexualities. Modern times are much more successful at granting equality to oppressed groups than ever before. For gender standards in the 19th century, women were treated as less than men. However, in the early 20th century, gender equality started to round the corner, with women gaining more rights in the workplace.
«We want to end gender inequality, and to do this, we need everyone involved.» Miss Watson’s speech shows that even though many of us believe that current generation lives in truly emancipated era, this is not true. Even though we live in the era of gender and racial ‘equality’ the issue of sex inequality is still ‘on’ and still not resolved. Emma Watson’s speech has inspired many women as well as men. It also has inspired me to shift my focus from the influence of David Hume’s text on the E.H. Carr, to the role of feminism and women during the period of Enlightenment. This essay claims that even though advocates of ‘loose’ women, David Hume in this case, were active throughout the Enlightenment, the Enlightenment failed to be era of feminism Firstly, let me address the question of the location of the Enlightenment and the oppressed women in this work.
Lastly, there is one more major difference between the two sides of Equality’s motivation. This major difference is that Equality’s motivation from a character standpoint is more self-centered than the author’s view on his motivation. I say this because Equality’s motivation from a character standpoint is mostly looking out for just equality. This is true because Equality is just looking for a better life for himself and that led to him discovering that he needed to start a new society. With Rand, her goal was always to help
“We cannot succeed when half of us are held back.” ( Malala) For some, equality means that everyone has the same rights and everything is fair, but that is not always the case. Megan B. Wyatt explains in her article, “Harrison Bergeron an Analysis and discussion on dystopian themes and American Trends” that the U.S. is on the road to a dystopian world. Wyatt declares that Kurt Vonnegut’s short story “Harrison Bergeron” is leading readers to believe that dystopia is possible in the modern world, and the loss of freedom, civil rights, and equality that is forced upon us, should be more noticeable One topic that Megan B. Wyatt discusses in her article is that the lack of freedom. Freedom is one of the most highly valued American ideals, and while it isn’t as obvious, our freedom is being taken away consciously. She uses an example in her article as well.
A wise man once said, “whoever wishes to foresee the future must consult the past; for human events ever resemble those of preceding times.” (Machiavelli). Indeed, the history of the epic plays an important role in comparing and contrasting the past and present values. The epic of Gilgamesh attempts to describe the moral ideas and standards of behavior of ancient Sumerians which are similar examples that move ahead for years to come. Some of the examples are gender divisions and the idea of the male being physically beautiful, immensely strong and the leader of the society. In the story, the status of the women in the civilization of ancient Sumerians is perceptible.
Jessica, I want to start by saying I have so much respect for the fact that you really took the time to consider your answer and go with the less popular choice. Unfortunately, I have to disagree. I looked up Western Civilization to see what exactly the phrase refers to and found that it is used to refer to the modern culture of western Europe and North America1 . I agree that the Egyptians had a great impact on the world, but I believe the ideals of the Hebrew civilization had a greater impact on Western Civilization specifically. Not all people practice Christianity or Judaism, but their ideals, such as respect for women and equal treatment of all people, are universal to our society no matter what religion a person may claim.

I believe that liberty and equality for all will always be important, but not just to the American society, but to all people. Every individual across the world deserves equality and liberty because they are basic human rights. I do believe that liberty and equality was more important in the past only because so many more people have been able to achieve it since then. If Abraham Lincoln hadn 't worked hard to present these ideals to the American culture, we would be living in a very different world. A world where women would be deprived of basic rights, and where children 's education would not mean as much as it does today.
This is because of the fact that what she was able to do during her reign is fantastic, and because she took rule, women were seen to have a bigger role in society.
