Throughout American history, women have requested and demanded to achieve recognition for having the same legitimacy as men. Naturally born rights, such as access to equal education, and the right to speak out in public were denied to females. Perhaps, the most powerful right they were denied was the right to vote. Though women were considered inferior and given limited roles in society, Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Carry Nation played a crucial role in the movement for women’s rights. Women did not achieve this right immediately, but that did not stop them from fighting.
Her only goal growing up in life should not be to get married where she is to find her happiness in her dependance as a wife and mother by being honored for her support, dignity , beauty and character as Dr. Todd suggests. He puts women on a an elevated sphere than that of men in the way he speaks of them as delicate queens, who were not made to do the hard labor and long hours that men were created for. Whereas, Hamilton puts both sexes on the same sphere. Expressing that, “Wives and mothers in their recognized "sphere" are called on to perform many services no more agreeable to woman's "refined," and far more exhaustive to her "delicate organization," than blacking boots....Through stress of need, men sometimes pursue uncongenial occupations, but women do it already. By becoming men they would lose nothing in that direction…” Hamilton is implying that women already do many of the unrefined jobs within the home that are not duties of the women's' race as Rev.
In 1853, Susan began to advocate for property rights for married women. Susan was its second president and first vice president. Susan continued to fight for the the right vote until she died on March 13, 1906. One reason women look up to her is because she was fined $100 for casting an illegal ballot. She was seething about this, so she went on a speaking spree and gave her incredibly famous speech.
Stanton fought for women's rights and has molded every female's life today. Even though Maya Angelou and Cady Stanton display the same concepts of freedom, equality, and achievement and success their perceptions differentiate. Maya Angelou and Cady Stanton

An example of this would be when Anthony questioned, “Are women persons?” to which she answered immediately after to say that women are, although they are not treated as such. Anthony’s strong use of her rhetorical devices, and use of her ethos, pathos, and logos, is what made the speech so powerful and well-remembered. Anthony’s speeches, along with several other speeches from several other women and their peaceful protests, encouraged America to move forward past their prejudice and accept the fact that women are in fact citizens, and deserve to exercise every right the founding fathers granted
So, what did Jefferson mean when he wrote that, “all men are created equal?” Friedman analyses and concludes that in his article, the equality is “endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights” (266). The reason why all persons are created equal is that God created us and gave us intrinsic value that we speak of in terms of “right” language. For me, I agree with Friedman’s point that he mentions “All men are created equal”, but not “Equality before God” because I am not a Christian. We are all people that have the same human characters, which means we have the same privilege and rights as humans. No matter what religions we are, we still have the same basic rights and opportunities; no matter what status we are since we were born, it happens before the premise of justice, which is most
The Best of The Best Both Oprah Winfrey and Ellen Degeneres are strong television women who are known all over the world. They have overcome their challenges and have become very successful women. “Oprah is an American television host, actress, producer, philanthropist and entrepreneur” (Biography Oprah). “Ellen was a stand-up comedian before starring in her own sitcom, Ellen and has been the host of her own award-winning talk show” (Biography Ellen). There are many similarities and differences between them.
Women were convinced to have 8 or 9 children for this very purpose. All in the Puritan community thought of females much like children in the way that they should be seen and not heard. These absurd rules were even in their bibles. Verses insinuated that women couldn't have their own minds and that they decision making process for everything should be left up to their husbands (Glubok 30). Furthermore rights were so limited that they were almost completely dependent on men: “A wife’s dependence became not only a matter of cultural, social, and legal restrictions, but necessarily of concrete economics as women moved from the households of fathers to husbands.” (Westerkamp 14).
Before the 1820’s women were viewed as objects rather than actual spouses. Women 's duties were to take care of children without complaining and from birth were expected to live up to the role of being a mother of many children and to serve their husbands as a domestic employee. Women were considered the weaker vessel, because they are inferior in structure and in physical strength. Many people of the time believed that women should not stray from the traditional paths and should continue to be delicate women working to cook, clean, and care for the children. Individuals such as Elizabeth Cady Stanton opposed traditional women’s gender roles and took apart of the Seneca Falls Convention that called for suffrage rights for women.
I never knew this many women spoke up for our rights that we have today. Yes they went through a lot to make our voice matter. The African American women never gave on their mission they were denied, laughed at, beat on, and still continue to fight for our rights. The resulting press treatment and congressional study led to the first union debate over federal amendment enfranchising women in some many years. The march strongly renews the suffrage movement as a certified and dangerous constitutional enforcement.
Introduction Or Nah by Ty Dolla $ign is a very popular song with more than 169 million views on YouTube ("Ty Dolla $ign - Or Nah ft. The Weeknd, Wiz Khalifa & DJ Mustard [Music Video]"). The song is highly focused on women and most importantly making females out to be objects present only for the pleasure of the artist. Within the context of this song, and songs like it, women, who are typically the subject of the song, are pressured into sexual situations that might be objectionable or uncomfortable. Songs like Or Nah provide a stark example of issues which western society faces today, in particular, the objectification of women and the cultural obsession with gaining power and money.
Society’s model was not what the women wanted to make them happy or feel good about themselves. It was time to change it and they wanted something different than what society had in mind for them. Many women saw this rebellion as a reason the celebrate. The model for these women was changed and they loved the thought of being their own person. “Many flappers celebrated the age of the flapper as a female declaration of independence .
However, today 's government and people around the world believe that women should and are able to encourage their highest potential. They have more freedom and they are now starting to be independent. They do not have to follow rules from other people and do not have the feeling of being in prison. Even though, there has been a lot of differences with the rights of genders female voices are now as important as men’s and that both sexes deserve equal opportunities equal rights. Finally, females have the right to vote, have jobs, be involved in politics, and they are free to love whoever they want and they think they will be happy to share their lives with.
