As a woman one would rather stay in Sparta than in Athens because the women of Sparta got to have sovereignty, mobility/status, rights and respect. The women of Sparta got greater independence than the Athenians because the Spartans believed that in spite of the person’s gender all Spartans had a responsibility to serve the warlike end of Sparta. Furthermore, Spartan women were taught to read, write and protect themselves, they were taught these things just so that they could be independent and so that they would not have to depend on men to do their work for them while they were at war, another reason was so that women could produce strong babies if they were strong. The women got their freedom in exchange of being warriors and guarding their properties. Spartan women were known for starting conflicts.
The perks of this acceptance would be career advancement, military readiness, and effectiveness; unfortunately, with helpful pros comes the unwanted negatives. Physical ability, tradition, and overall efficiency are just three to list, there obviously are more; however, these would prove to be the most prominent. All in all, women should be accepted into the military draft, because not only would they benefit the country in political and global ways, but the acceptance would also help those that live within this nation. Women make up just as much, if not more than the population that men do within the United States, and going by age not all men will be drafted into the military

Katniss is strong since she was born she was being “tested”, she knows a wide variety of survival skills and her knowledge expands even more when she starts practicing for the hunger games. With this in mind, Suzanne doesn’t mean that all women in society should know how to use
To be a woman is to be quiet, only speak when you are spoken to; to be submissive, if a man asks you do something, he is the one with more power, so do it; to put others opinions before your own; you may like that shirt, but someone else won’t take you seriously, so change. Unfortunately, this is what many girls are taught from a young age. All of these rules are so deeply rooted in our society that it does not feel like misogyny, it feels like day to day life. In order to survive, women constantly adjust themselves to a society that demands perfection from us. “Compromise is what women do.” Chimamanda Adichie makes this statement in her speech, Why We Should All Be Feminist.
Therefore, who would believe a woman when she confesses that the man who sexually abused her was the head of the prevention group? It would be hard to accredit somebody who accused a head personal, of hurting harassing, and sexually abusing a military female. Women have a crucial role in the active military, being most represented in medical (30.5%) and administrative (30.1%) specialties, and sacrificing their lives in their noble efforts, for the safety of ours. But, female soldiers have come to a realization that some enemies are not just across the battle line, but from their own team as well. The US government should take energetic measures to prevent abuse, sexual assault, and harassment against the female gender in the US military, because it would not only be in the best interest of military women, but the US military in
McCormick writes to young western girls because they are the next generation women that both care and can make a difference. This generation can find unity in each other by recognizing our different but similar adversities, and helping one another reach a better world. Unlike some women in the past, we can use each other to build on our accomplishments cumulatively instead of tearing others down to benefit personally. In such a patriarchal world, women definitely need to work harder to attain their goals; although, to climb the ladder of power, some ladies step on their fellow female peers on the way up, and justify this by the male’s dominant role in
In the west states women were valued for how much they contributed VI. After women got the right to vote, they took men’s jobs while they were at war, and soon started joining to military. The Code of Hammurabi let women serve as judges, witnesses, and scribes. Once the Civil War past women could get a better education and could be nurses and teachers. It was also a slow-developing but nation-wide movement led by women, produced the Women’s Suffrage Movement and eventually, the right to
Women have overcome many stereotypes and continue to do so, but there will always be more. These stereotypes have not stopped women from accomplishing want they want to do, it has given them a reason to reach their goal, so they can prove to people that they are more than what men believe they are. Women facing criticism push them to strive for greater success and continue to break more stereotypes. Above all people’s thoughts on what a woman should do has to change. Otherwise, stereotypes will continue to control people’s mindset if nothing is
Moreover, the successful feminism movement in the U.S has been targeting as one of its primary goals to achieve equality for women in the military (Berlatsky, 2013). However, women must be diverted from entering the military because of the difficulties and risks which can face them in this field. In addition, Women play a more significant role socially. Therefore, men and women achieved equality in many areas. However, this equality should not be the reason behind endangering the safety and well-being of women.
Since the year 2013, many from Congress, the Senate and the Pentagon have been trying to allow female soldiers in the combat role into our military forces. Even the SOCOM, Special Operations Command, has been considering allowing females into the special forces, saying they could benefit . For basic military entry, the physical standards for females are lower than the male basic military entry scores. If the Special Operation forces, like Navy SEALs, Green Berets, Air Force PJs and MARSOC, allow females in, then they can not lower the physical and body composition standards when volunteering for the Special Forces. Special forces are highly trained and exceptionally determined soldiers in unconventional warfare, specialized in capturing high-value enemy personnel and terrorists around the world, carrying out small unit direct-action missions, and collecting information and intelligence through
It was known by the government that the best way to persuade women into aiding the war effort was to appeal to their emotions; women were angry that their loved ones were forced to go off to war to partake in a fight that was believed America had no need to be in. Yet, women were expected to set aside their personal beliefs to insure that America could still make further advancements without its men. However, women still complied because they knew the responsibility laid with them to keep the nation running. Still, much of propaganda had a purpose to motivate women to lend a helping hand in the war. As Susan Mathis said, “The patriotic appeal had two aspects… ‘do your part’... ‘a soldier may die if you don’t do your part’...” (Mathis).
The suffragettes helped women get the vote as they where in the public media a lot, and they showed women to be courageous and high-lightened their bravery for example the Emily Davison case. They were being sympathised with by surrounding countries. However, some historians could argue they didn 't help as it also showed women to be violent, and not trustworthy to be granted with the vote. Furthermore, WW1 helped women get the vote as it showed women were now valued as they where involved in munitions - making weapons for the men at war. They took on men’s jobs such as Police force, Army, Bus and Tram Drivers.
