Fuller encouraged women to go against the grain and educate themselves. She told women to disregard society and learn to be an independent person. In these aspects she shows a few of Emerson’s main ideas. Fuller is different in her thought process though, because she is mainly talking to women in her essay.
Germany lost opportunities to fix its’ economy because of losing land, and Germans wanted the land back, which is exploited by Hitler by saying he was in favor of war do they could get the land back. Paying reparations caused Germans to lose self-respect and made them angry. Hitler again exploits the Germans displeasure by discontinuing the payments. Again, the Germans are exploited by Hitler by restoring pride when they had been humiliated for being blamed for the war. This caused many Germans to accept the Nazi regime and probably join the army.
The Islamic Gunpowder Empires, which were the Mughals, The Ottomans, and the Savafids, all had different reasons for declining in power, while the European powers had their own reasons for growing in power. The Mughals declined in strength because religious intolerance led to revolts, the Ottomans declined in power because their economy weakened due to new European trade routes, and the Savafids declined in power because they were outcompeted by neighboring nations with guns, what they believed to be “unmanly” and stopped using. The European powers grew because new trade routes allowed for more cultural diffusion, leading to new innovation and technology, and a population increase due to the introduction of new foods. The Mughal Empire, the Ottoman Empire, and the Savafid Empire, known as the “Islamic Gunpowder Empires,” had
The first thing Gustav did when the Danish were forced out was to impose taxes on the church. There were debts to Lubeck that needed to be paid and the Catholic church had the money to do it. This would later lead to the reformation in Sweden. Aside from having debts to pay off, Vasa didn't quite like the idea of a power that had just as much or more than what he had as king, though, he did sympathize with the need of church services. This led to the spread of Lutheranism throughout the country but Sweden didn't accept it as the national religion until 1544, because of the change to Lutheranism, there was a revolt from 1542 to 1543, started by Anti-Lutheran's.
The Spanish Inquisition affected thousands of hundreds of people. The problem to be addressed is was the Spanish Inquisition fair and just to the people of Spain? Some say that it’s not fair because the Muslims had religious tolerance when they ruled Spain. Others argue that it is fair because it prevents further conflict between the people of Spain. Ultimately, the Spanish Inquisition wasn’t fair to the Muslims and Jews because they were contributing members of society, they were told that they needed to either convert to Catholic, or be exiled, and they had to leave all their belongings behind if they left.
Along the influence from a leader, and consternation current in the people, more people started to join the Christianity and its government. These people lost their power to fight, Umuofia was not a village any more that practiced wrestling. They who’d taken up the foreign religion and claimed that its own religion was bad. This propose the clan losing agency as its people get drained to the Christianity. “ he has won our brothers, and clan no longer acts like one.”
Throughout the Middle Ages, the Renaissance Period, and the Restoration Period, the role of women began to change. This idea was reflected in many of the literary works such as Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, The Book of Margery Kempe, Astrophil and Stella, Utopia, The Rape of Lock, and A Modest Proposal. During the Middle Ages, women had few rights. They were meant to serve their husband and children and tend to the household chores. Many people used religion to show that men had authority over women.
The Black Death (Plague of 1348) had a deep and lasting impact on Medieval Europe for a variety of reasons. First of all, the Black Death influenced the way people lived in Medieval Europe. People formed communities, isolated from each other. Men and women also abandoned their cities, houses, dwellings, relatives, property, and went abroad. It is clear that they believed that God would have mercy on them if they fled, or that the Plague would decline outside of the city walls.
One of the most significant works of feminist literary criticism, Virginia Woolf’s “A Room of One`s Own”, explores both historical and contemporary literature written by women. Spending a day in the British Library, the narrator is disappointed that there are not enough books written by or even about women. Motivated by this lack of women’s literature and data about their lives, she decides to use her imagination and come up with her own characters and stories. After creating a tragic, but extraordinary gifted figure of Shakespeare’s sister and reflecting on the works of crucial 19th century women authors, the narrator moves on to the books by her contemporaries. So far, women were deprived of their own literary history, but now this heritage is starting to appear.
”(Doc 3) This demonstrates that the removal of the Edict of Nantes drove people insane because it granted the people France substantial rights, however when the rights were removed by Louis XIV people became infuriated, which is another reason to why the French Revolution occurred. Fundamentally, the actions that Louis XIV took had a great impact towards his people. His actions ultimately led the people of France initiate the French Revolution, which left France and its people in a vulnerable
English women were what Native Americans called “spoiled.” They did not work but instead spent their time attending the house receiving an education and sewing. They generally did all of their work for the benefit of the family, and not the outside world. “Women’s Work” would have included such activities as spinning, weaving and churning. In contrast, in the Native American culture, women were the workers of the tribe.
The view that the reason for main women achieving the vote in 1918 was due to the hard work of women during World War One is highly valid. This view is supported by many historians such as Phillips and Bartley. On the other hand, there are other factors that also contributed to women achieving the vote; changing attitudes of society, politics and the campaigns of the suffragists. Changing societal views is supported by Pugh and Bruley, whereas, Joanou and Purvis show that politics hold conflicting values as they either support women’s vote or are in for the vote to salvage their image. Whilst campaigns of suffragists hold the view of ‘Germany was portrayed as the powerful male aggressor, Belgium and Britain as the vulnerable female victims
I decided to select the two documents, “A Tour of the Lowell Mills” and “A Dialogue on Female Labor” for the reason being that women were obligated to work at home taking care of their children rather than actually having the opportunity to join the work force. However, once it became the norm for them to have a job it was shown to be under some rough circumstances. These two documents ultimately contradicted what I was always taught in school, instead of the awful surroundings I believed they lived through they explained how good they were housed and paid. The theme that connects them both is the idea of the women were given the opportunity to work and essentially enjoying their workplace.
