Naden khaled Ms. Amanda 11C 22/2/2017 Women’s Education and Jobs in The Antebellum Era Although women in the antebellum era were far from seen as equal american citizens, many changes happened that affected the way that the community looks at women. From nothing to schools that helped them learn and help them get a bigger opportunity. Despite how great women are now, long ago they didn’t have the right to work or even to go to schools. Women were expected to sit at home take care of the kids and maybe take care of a farm if she had one. Before the civil war women had somewhat of an education.
Women were offended that they less education than men. They learned less and were trained to only be mothers. Everything changed in 19th century when women protested for education. “In 1854 Cheltenham Ladies college is founded in England”(Macdonald). Women started building schools for women with a little help from their father for money.
A Doll’s House, a play written by Henrik Ibsen was an interesting read and practically a glimpse of how women were treated in the 19th century. Ibsen’s play portrayed women whose inner nature was strongly in conflict with the role the 19th century woman was called on to perform in the society (Ibsen, 2017). The daily life of women in the 19th century was that of many obligations and fewer choices, women were always being controlled by men, first by their father, brother, uncle and then their husbands. For instance, Father’s would not educate their daughters or they would rather get a special kind of education such as those in sewing, catering or housekeeping in order to prepare them as “Dolls in the house”; with the sole idea that they would eventually become properties of another man, therefore, there was no point educating them. Particularly, young women in that era were expected to find a husband, have children and serve him for the rest of their lives.
Living their life in a convent or nunnery was no longer an option to remain single as a result of the dissolution of the monasteries. Therefore, the only alternative to marriage for Elizabethan women of the lower classes was domestic service. Those women who did not marry or haven’t married were thought about by their neighbors as witches and were subject to suspicion. Due to this, all Elizabethan women would be expected to marry, wives were regarded as “property” of their husbands and the women were expected to get married and be dependent on the male population all their life. Though the role of women in the present is still not equal as that of men, the role of women has immensely changed over the generations.
In Pakistan a lot of women are restricted because of their husbands as they are not well educated and do not allow their wives to get out of the house and work and the other reason is segregation (pardah). They do not want their wives or daughters to work in a male dominated
From this knowledge, Stanton realized that women did not have same rights with men. She learnt about the inequality of women’s legal position where women had no right of property, income, employment or even custody of children (Elizabeth Cady Stanton). After she graduated from Johnstown Academy in 1826, Stanton planned to continue her study in Union College (the college where her last brother planned to go) in order to comfort her despondent father after losing his last son. Unfortunately, Union College did not accept women as students. In the end, she continued her study at Emma Willard’s Troy Female
In Victorian age females were educated but more of the female population was forced prostitution. There were very less job options for women so they had only this option to earn their living. But charlotte, very beautifully has opposed this trend and showed that women should study and get good jobs instead of ruining themselves in prostitution. Charlotte had a very difficult childhood and has thus seen the reality of the world. So she was well known with the fact that society would not accept her easily.
It developed that way mainly because in the early centuries only the males were allowed to get a proper education. In those times, it was mainly a sexist society. Only men had the right to study, women in the other hand were not allowed to get a proper education from a school or university. In the 1800s, girls began attending single-sex schools. And it was not until 1880s and early into the 20th century that women were allowed in males schools.
You are a woman and you are not allowed to go to school! Was the biggest unnecessary thing for women, they were not allowed to go to school because men though that they could not do other jobs except being housewife. This idea was entirely wrong because women have proven over and over again that they are capable of doing everything that a man can. They are equal to men because they are human and there is not any extra ability that a man has in comparison. All around the world, women were not even allowed to vote because men thought that they did not know anything about politics and were not able to make such complicated decisions.
“She talks to African leaders about making laws that allow girls to go to school until at least age 18.”. If girls get into marriage at a young age and not get an education then they will not get a good future. Zuriel is a big influence for a lot of people in the world and she is helping so much. This is not easy for these young kids to not have a good education. That is one way that people get poor its because they did not have a good education.
