Historically, under different political systems, women's participation in politics and active decision making was different and the shares of the seats in national and provincial assemblies were also different. Women acquired only 3% of the total seats in the first legislative assembly but they had zero representation in the second legislative assembly. From 1956 to 1958, a change took place in the political organization once again. Since the post of governor general was abolished, Iskander Mirza, took the position as the president. After the Zia era, another transformation in the political structure took place which brought many changes in the representation of women in politics.
In 1901 we won our fist battle, and 42 percent of women over 25 years of age finally had the right to vote. Unfortunately, this right was dependent on the wealth of the woman in question. In 1907 Parliament once more debated the right for women to vote and some women finally got to vote in general elections (stortingsvalg) for the first time. This right was again dependent upon the wealth of the women (or their husbands). Despite that victory, we also encountered resistance from supporters of male dominance such as Doctor Ole Olsen Malm.
These mothers then raise, care and teach their children allowing them to become citizens of a country. To become a citizen they must follow the rules and the laws of their country. So if women can raise voters then they should be able to vote themselves. It is ironic that women can raise voters but they cannot vote themselves. This photo also shows that they are actively apart of the nation which makes them a citizen with a nationality so they should be allowed to vote.
For instance, many women worked within the Bolshevik government, giving them a figure of authority rarely seen before in a powerful and influenceable country. This can be seen through the condemning tone used by Mariia Fedorovna to accuse individuals who see women as inferior against the ruling government. The point of view presented in this document is that respectable people think of all members in their societies as equal, with governments that make their primary goal to give all of their citizens the same resources and opportunities. Also, the high percentage of women among research and professional personnel in the Soviet Union demonstrates the true economic power women gained during the communist Soviet Union, being one of the primary forces driving the Soviet Union’s economy(Doc.4). Women were highly involved in education, giving them the power to encourage equality as a primary value, pursuing nationalism.
Since women are better taught, more prone to be utilized outside the home, and have better monetary assets, they are pretty much as liable to take part in legislative issues. Towards the end of the 1980’s to 1990’s, women in politics exploded in the masses assuming higher legislative positions. For instance, in current American politics, notable female politicians, such as, Barbara Boxer, Nancy Pelosi, and Dianne Feinstein have made tremendous progress in advocating women’s right. Furthermore, in the 2008 presidential election, Hillary Clinton made a strong bid for a seat in the White House. If taken back century ago, the thought of having a female presidential
They claimed that exerting indirect influence was not only time-consuming but also ineffective in enacting social reforms. With the vote, suffragists argued, it would be easier for women to oppose corrupt government practices and win social reforms (Kauffman). Women began to argue that with the opinion of women throughout the country, the government would advance. Men and women have a difference in opinion so having both involved in the government they could avoid future corruption and bad decision making. Women have a lot of different qualities than men so adding those to the government system would help the
Women’s contribution to World War I has made a positive impact on politicians and the general public. British women started to earn the respect and admiration they all longed for. Women have been seen as inferior to men both socially and legally, and also referred to as the ‘weaker sex’. However, women have proven themselves that they’re just as skilled and responsible as men. MPs make a
Americans like Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony in the United States decided to focus their energy the right to vote, also recognized as suffrage. Women demanded the right to vote, the strongest in settler countries where women who had major influence. At Seneca Falls, New York, in 1848, a resolution passed that encouraged women's rights to suffrage, as well as education, professional occupations, and political office. Their movement did not obtain popular support, until the 20th century, although their activism established a foundation for extensive social change later on. Enlightenment thinkers conferred very convincing arguments for female rights, and in several situations persuaded governments to grant women rights, being free public education, legalized divorce and inheritance.
1920’s: Women’s Suffrage Alice Paul once said; “There will never be a new world order until woman are part of it.” In this quote the women’s right leader refers to how women are important to society. Society need women because of their capacity in a smartest way to take decisions. Unfortunately back to the 1920s man did not think women were necessary, in fact that all the women were being excluded from politics, sports, jobs and education. Women’s suffrage struggled with not only being accepted in society in daily activities, but fighting for the right to vote, the access to higher education, being excluded from jobs, equal payment opportunities, and sports activities. On the 1920s the right to vote was not designated for women.
