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. The only women who worked after marriage were poor families who often sent their children to work at a young age.
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.
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
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
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).
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.
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.
Some actions are justifiable, while others are not. Antigone is a tragedy by Sophocles written in 441 B.C. as the third of the three Theban plays. The protagonist, Antigone, defies the law of man, placed by King Creon, by burying her brother Polynices who was decreed a traitor. In the play, most of Antigone's actions are justifiable because the intentions are dedicated to her family and following the law of the gods over the law of man.
In the time of the ancient Greeks there were Greek tragedies, which was the most popularly drama performed in theaters across Greece. Every Greek tragedy requires a “Tragic Hero.” For example, in Sophocles’ Greek tragedy “Antigone” the protagonist Antigone is seen as the tragic hero because of the traits she has shown through hubris, hamartia, and her unfortunate nemesis. As you can see, this hero is called a tragic hero because of the flaws that they portray. These flaws are usually the cause of the hero’s downfall.
Ideas on justice and law within Jean Anouilh’s Antigone as representations of the roles within Vichy France during the years nineteen forty to nineteen forty-four In response to critic Hubert Gignoux, Jean Anouilh stated that; ‘‘The rest of my life, as long as God wills it, will remain my personal business, and I will withhold the details of it.’’ This ambiguity that shrouds Anouilh’s personal life encapsulates his political beliefs. The vagueness of Anouilh’s Antigone enables people to make their own assumptions on its social messages and stances, and which roles are being depicted by which character. This essay will examine how characters’ standards of law and justice represent the roles within Vichy France during the start of the nineteen
Antigone, from the play, Antigone, by Sophocles, was the sister of Polyneices. Sophocles used tone, imagery, diction, and many other literary devices to show Antigone’s nobility and virtuosity, her hamartia, and her downfall. These are all three of the characteristics of a tragic hero. This defies her as a tragic hero. Sophocles recognizes Antigone as noble and virtuous by showing the love she had for her brother and wanting to give him a proper burial, even though it is against the king’s edict, knowing she could be punished.
