Women in the 1600s to the 1800s were very harshly treated. They were seen as objects rather than people. They were stay-at-home women because people didn’t trust them to hold jobs. They were seen as little or weak. Women living in this time period had to have their fathers choose their husbands.
Women have come a long way throughout history from the right to vote to be able to work in the workplace. They have faced a lot of discrimination but have been able to fight through each situation, but yet there are disparities between men and women in the workplace from the pay gap to positions. But why are these disparities present? Katty Kay and Clarie Shipman, writers of the article The Confidence Gap, believe the answer is confidence. This article argues that the reason why women do not pursue higher positions is due to low confidence through a pathos appeal directed at the audience, an ethos appeal given by the credibility of the authors, and a logos appeal by a variety of statistics and studies.
Rape on the Night Shift is a documentary about the sexual assaults that some of the janitors suffer while working at night. This documentary reveals the injustice that these workers have to go through because most of them are undocumented and they don’t know their rights. The experiences of woman in this documentary is correlated with the feminist theory, the idea of seeing women unequal to men and the idea of the men having the power to control women. Indeed, the documentary let us see the gender inequality, exploitation, and the de-valuing of woman’s work. We see the feminist theory in the documentary when the managers or supervisors sexually abuse of their workers.
On the contrary, women during that time had little freedom over all aspects of life. Ranging from employment to formal education, women often faced disadvantages due to the inferiority that men placed on them. However, as time went on, women became aware of the mistreatment from their male counterpart and began questioning the subservient role that they were accustomed to, leading to women 's fight for equality. In these two essays, we will examine the different theories around Liberal and Marxist feminism.
People are still prejudiced against women, it is not as awful as it once was but, it is still there. I have watched them get told they could not do anything or a specific job because "they are not capable". That they did not have the right "skill set" because they were a woman and not a man. Some people are always going to be prejudiced
According to this data, it is evident that the women was treated unfairly in getting paid. This gap is caused by the women’s lack of courage about asking the boss to raise the salary and the women was seemed to be less able to afford much work than the men. Then, they would be offered easier work which provided less salary. To extend, all those conclusions were based on the bias, natural sex differences and the logical fallacies. People all thought women were weaker than the men, because it the early society, the women had lower social levels and were forced to do the houseworks and the men worked outside.
This issue of women's rights in the workplace has gotten more and more recognized as woman start to speak up. In many countries around the world, women tend to make less than men and are usually offered these stereotypical jobs as a secretary, maid, nanny, nurse, teacher, librarian etc because this is what men think women are cable of. Although not every woman has these jobs some do have the great chance to have a job in the workplace that's higher in payment that those jobs offer. But men do still make more money than women. “In many industries, female workers are systematically denied their rights to regular pay and regular working hours; equal pay for equal work; permanent contracts; safe and non-hazardous work environments; and freedom of association” ( IRLF).
Furthermore, there were unequal wages between men and women. Even though women were able to work, they were not fully able to experience it because of the low pay they received. Often, this discouraged women from working or being ambitious about their future. Pankhurst questions, "How is it, the, that some of you have nothing but ridicule and contempt and [condemnation] for women who are fighting for exactly the same thing? In other words, men are sympathetic to women in other countries, but are not sympathetic to women in their own country.
Women of the Nineteenth Century were considerably involved in the fight against slavery and racial injustice.

Abolitionism and the campaign for equality for women should also be investigated because they merge together. The Nineteenth Century was a time of reform and women were among the strongest advocates for the human rights movements occurring. The end of slavery was the most important accomplishment of reformers of that time.
In the colonial era, women did not have many rights, and people did not consider them as equals to men, especially in Puritan New England where the Puritan beliefs governed society. Society expected women to get married, have children, and obey their husbands; they considered anything outside of these limitations as radical confrontations to the law. The woman’s main contribution to society was to teach the young girls about the customs and appropriate behaviors of a woman (Jolliffe, Roskelly, 242.45).
