Consequently, anything they owed were their husbands now, all earnings went to straight into their husbands pockets (Bonnie and Ruthsdotter). Besides from having no right in the eyes of the law, women also had many limitations regarding education and the workforce. Women were not allowed to enter many professions including medicine and law. Girls
Women did anything and everything in their power to contribute to their causes. During the time of the civil war women were banned from fighting. Being a soldier was seen as a man’s job and not a role for a lady to do. In general women’s role at this time was to take care of the children, clean the house and cook for the family. Most women didn’t have jobs unless they were a school teacher or as domestic servant, but once they got married they were expected to no longer work.
Mott had extreme views on slavery and because of this she was persecuted. This includes burning the Pennsylvania Hall in which she was working. However, even with this barrier, she was so convicted to continue that she kept working. She wanted to leave the world a better place than she found it. Mott lived her life by her saying “‘Let our lives be in accordance with our convictions of right, each striving to carry out our principles.’¨(BrainyQuote).
The third group is divided and labeled as irresponsible and reckless because they do not have any knowledge of birth control and they do not exercise it. These people do not control the size of their families, and they just have children even if they don’t plan on having them, and that is why Margaret Sanger want her audience to have knowledge of birth control, so they can control the size of their families, and so they won’t just have children whenever they don’t take care of themselves. Where they might end up giving these children up, or where these children might end up suffering, or where women just end up having abortions, and these are some reasons why Margaret Sanger opened up a clinic to help people to plan
I believe that Hammurabi didn’t believe in “love” or relationship. He looked at marriage in a way just to produce children, that’s all. Hammurabi didn't let women have a chance to proves themselves as someone valuable because of all these laws! I also see that Hammurabi look at women as weak when it came to working and money because men would bring home the food and work for money. Overall the women belonged to their husband, it was hard to achieve any gender equality because of so many restrictions when it came to money, marriage and work
Antigone is the courageous character of this play because she would accept any consequences for her brother, she would die for him, and let her dream of being a mother and wife vanish. Even though Antigone’s brother committed a crime, he should still be buried like any other family member that committed a crime. The first thing Creon’s does in Antigone is declare a hash but understandable law. Anyone who attempts to honor Polyneices will be sentenced
This proved when the narrator’s mother always tried to get the narrator to do work that appropriate for a lady instead of outside work, however it was not something that she enjoyed. The narrator also was not considered of real helper to her father because she was a female. This proved when her father introduced the narrator as ‘his new hired hand’ to a salesman, he replied, “I thought it was only a girl” (line 76, paragraph 10).This shows how the society view girl as ‘just a girl’ at that time and it means that their roles are not really significant in the society. As being said by Alexander Pope (1688-1744), “Most women have no character at all.” (Bressler, C.E., 2011). Next, from the statement “wait till Laird gets a little bigger, then you’ll have a real help” (line 94, paragraph 12), it shows that, even though the narrator had done more work than her younger brother, she was still under appreciated and her helps seem unimportant for her father.
For example, women weren’t allowed to vote, if they were married they had no property rights, they couldn’t gain education because no colleges or universities didn’t want women students, and women were made totally dependent on men. The women’s suffrage movement took place in the middle of the 19th Century. During this time, women struggled to vote and run for office. The problem was that women weren’t being treated as equals. “Deep cultural beliefs in male/female differences in attitudes and abilities supported this situation and giving the women the vote posed a direct threat to male powers and privileges” (Cooney Robert Taking a New Look - The Enduring Significance of the American Woman Suffrage Movement).
One more point got my attention that is gender roles it is an issue and it is obvious in The Gambian culture. When opinions were asked about health center only the men were talking and given opinion, but there were no women to talk or to have opinion and also health committee are built on men there was no women in the committee. In some societies women are always ignored and their opinion or even being is not valuable. As a result, women don’t have self-confidence to give their opinion in front of other people or men is some cultures like The Gambian culture. I believe women contribution is very important for the sake of their families and the community because as I understand from the article women use the center most with their children
Esperanza had no friend when she moved to her dad’s new home. She cannot be a friend with boys because that is prohibited in her culture. She also cannot be a friend with her sister because of the big different in the age. Friends in the American culture is something necessary because they will be you other family. Esperanza tried so badly to find to herself a second family in another words new friends.
