And had 2 loving parents, Daniel Anthony & Lucy Reid. Her family had a big impact in her life, pushing her to do better & work harder. Gratefully, In 1851 she met some who became her lifelong best friend, Elizabeth Cady Stanton who ALSO became her co-worker in the social reform activities mostly in the fight for women 's rights. The both of them in 1863 founded “The Women 's State Temperance Society’ after they were not allowed to speak at a temperance conference because of her gender.
The era’s “perfect woman”, Daisy Buchanan, is a bubbly, conflicted woman whose choice is between two men: her husband, Tom Buchanan, and her former lover Jay Gatsby. Since Daisy’s character was written in the 1920s, women’s characters were based on the traditional women of the time period, and many women then were still seen as objects and as less desirable than men. When Daisy is invited to Gatsby’s mansion, her first sight of him in many years upon seeing his expensive clothing, she is so overcome with emotion that she begins to weep “with a strained sound” and begins to “cry stormily” showing her true reaction to something as petty as material objects (92). She continues, claiming that

One cannot understand the writing of ‘The great Gatsby’ without considering the era in which it took place.

I am a woman.” She spoke those words in 1982 when women were continuing to challenge traditional gender roles. Billie Jean King, an American female tennis player, has never been one to back away from controversy. She is a powerful voice for the advancement of women’s rights, equal pay, and the acceptance of sexual orientation. King is probably best known for accepting a challenge from Bobby Riggs, a former number one male tennis player in the world, to a “Battle of the Sexes.” She beat Bobby in straight sets.

Her moral ambiguity begins with her occupation as a professional golfer, which is a male-dominated and in addition to that, her career launched off with a big scandal. At his first Gatsby party, Nick finally recalls where he remembers Jordan from and what she had done. He says, “At her first big golf tournament there was a row that nearly reached the newspapers-- a suggestion that she had moved her ball from a bad lie in the semi-final round” (Fitzgerald 57). Nick describes her as, “a slender, small-breasted girl with an erect carriage, which she accentuated by throwing her body backward at the shoulders like a young cadet” (Fitzgerald 11), so her androgynous physical appearance also connects with the color gray. Another one of her physical features, which are, “her gray sun-strained eyes” (Fitzgerald 11) directly connects her to the color gray in The Great Gatsby.
Babes in Boyland: Women in Modern Media Oftentimes media portrays women as objects. During boxing matches my mother would always point out the fact that men always get to be this “skilled heroic athletes”, while women are always depicted as a “pretty pleasant eye candy”. Gender role has been an issue ever since the invention of modern media, for modern advertising techniques focus on humor, satire, sex, and very often the objectification of women. Carl’s Jr./ Hardee’s advertisement campaign exemplifies the wrongful depiction of women as sexual objects. In recent ads for its “Tex Mex Bacon Thickburger”, and “South West Watty Welt” Carl’s Jr./ Hardee's use of overwhelming sexual content blatantly oversexualize, and objectifies women.
Portfolio Reflections Item 3: Character Map The character I thought had a lot of significance in the novel, but was not a main character was Jordan Baker. Jordan Baker was Daisy’s friend who grew up with her. She is famous for golf and that is how the narrator, Nick, recognizes her. She is rather arrogant and it is revealed later in the novel that she is very dishonest. She is Nick’s love interest through most of the novel and is in many pivotal scenes including the climax.
Minnie had finally achieved what she had spent so much time fighting for but this accomplishment was great and it was a milestone for women in the state of teas but it wasn’t enough for Minnie she set her sights out for something bigger and better which was an amendment that would grant women throughout America the right to vote. In order to achieve this Minnie made arrangements with United States Senator from Texas Morris Sheppard in 1917 for a conference in his Washington, D.C. office for women to state their perspectives on the proposed suffrage amendment to the Constitution of the United States. Minnie and NAWSA lobbyist Maud Wood Park, who would become the first president of the League of Women Voters, initiated a campaign for constituents to flood the offices of their representatives with telegrams in favor of passage. The United States House of Representatives passed the first version of the Nineteenth Amendment on January 10, 1918, but it failed in the United States Senate. This failure did not stop Minnie nor her supporters in fact it inspired them more.

Once the women’s parade reached the Treasury Building, one hundred women and children began a show of how both struggling through the years. Also women were pushing for equality between men and women would not stop until they had gotten what they wanted. The women 's events started with “The Star Spangled Banner” and ended with a dove of peace being released. New York Times named this pageant as “one of the most impressively beautiful spectacles ever staged in this country”. This protest gained so much attention that president Wilson (who was running for president at the time) came to see what was going on.

Anna Goldsworthy writes in the introduction to her Quarterly Essay, that it’s never been a better time to be a woman in this country ‘on the surface’. Despite the hegemony of females to crucial positions within government, large business and greater education, women are still held to incredible standards in what Goldsworthy marks as an ‘image-centric culture’. Before I read the essay, I thought it was going to be solely based around women in politics, but it wanders off into the general area of sexism and misogyny where she Goldsworthy starts writing about how the female is viewed in common society, and then further away into Gonzo porn, online culture, typically associated with teenage women and their image and how they are viewed online, and also how women may go out and correct their flaws by makeup and plastic surgery. Goldsworthy begins her essay here with Gillard 's speech, now referred to as simply ‘the misogyny speech’, it was a hit out of Abbott and his associated endorsement of ‘sexism and misogyny’. She identifies that Gillard’s speech was a detour from the safer and more common female politician’s tactic of ‘cop it and move on’.
