She started working for achieving her maxim gradually since then. In her more than 30 years career, despite challenges women faced at that time and her foot surgery in 1980s, she never gave up and continued pushing even harder.

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.
President William Taft did not favor women 's suffrage and that it’s clear for everyone. Taft’s speech upsets everyone based on what he said, “That women in general had to be denied the right to vote because of the possibility that the less desirable among them might actually vote while the more intelligent among them choose not to vote.” (Lunardi 34). Alice’s rally took place in Independence Square, where it had been dedicated to the founding fathers. The Independence rally attracted two thousand people more than ever hearing about woman suffrage in Philadelphia. Alice went back home, but Christabel persuades her to stay, but she denied the invitation.
Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton’s contribution to this cause was monumental to the start of this movement. They, along with plenty of other women and rights activists, fought for equality for women in society. Not having the right to vote made women feel as if their opinions and political views were trivial and not equal to those of men. However, men felt as if women were too emotional, less educated, and were unable to evaluate political issues that did not pertain to a group consisting of mostly stay at home mothers. Obviously, as history has now demonstrated, exactly the opposite is true.
Sports have always been a male dominate sport, especially in schools. It took many years of schooling and fighting for females to be able to participate in sports and have equal education opportunities. “The passage of Title IX, the 1972 Education Amendments to the Civil Rights Act, expanded high school athletic opportunities to include girls, revolutionizing mass sports participation in the United States (Rammell, 2014, pg. 136).” Since the legislation, Title IX was passed, sports offerings for boys and girls has changed. Title IX has created many opportunities for girls and young women today since it began 40 years ago.
An important discourse community that was a part of my life was my volleyball team during my four years of high school. I started playing my first year going into high school and continued until I graduated. Until now I wasn’t even aware that would even be considered a discourse community, but it fits all of the qualifications of Swales’ definition of a discourse community. Goals As a sports team, we obviously have goals; our main reason being to win against our opponents. The entire reason a team is put together and participating in practice almost every day is going towards our goal as a team to win games.
In the early 1800’s, Women were denied some of the essential rights that men had. For instance, women could not own land or have the right to vote. In fact, women could even be fired from the job they currently had if they were pregnant. But just imagine this, if a woman wanted to establish a credit card, she needs her husband to authenticate that for her. And to top it off, women were even denied to go to college because of their gender, even if they have spectacular grades (Katie).
Society during that time, believed that women weren’t intelligent enough to take on such roles. Women in the Merchant of Venice go against their gender roles. Men did not think that women could ever be as smart as they were, and did not listen or take advice from women that is why Portia had to dress up as a man just to get the men to listen to her and Antonio was saved just because of her intelligence. Here is revealed the idea of love that women can do everything to see their husbands happy. Jessica also goes against the gender role of women, because she is making her own decision about her life.
Women’s Suffrage Women’s Suffrage occurred during the 1840s to the 1920s. Women did not have the right to vote in America until the end of World War I. All kinds of women rallied the movement because they wanted the right to vote. Other countries including, New Zealand and Australia achieved these rights earlier than America, Canada and Great Britain. In America, the movement really got its start during the Seneca Falls Convention in 1848.
In early life of Tyson his family was an athletic family. When his grandma was in college, she had competed in track. His sister Tiffany joined track and field in high school.

Only male abolitionists can attended while the female were excluded in the convention. At that time, women were the dependent of men. Married women had to obey their husband, and they did not have any rights for herself which caused many women suffered in inferiority complex. Their inferiority complex also caused them inequality in education and career opportunities which were the conclusion of the Declaration of Sentiments. Women did not have the opportunity to study at school, and they were treated differently with men in work field.
It was, however, the type of job that everyone dreams of, a job that I enjoyed almost more than anything. During the summer and fall seasons I practiced four days during the week and traveled to tournaments every weekend. I continued to practice throughout the winter with my tournament team and in the spring I played for my high school team. Over the years I made amazing memories and, along with my tournament team, won several Maryland State Titles. Softball is a sport that has taught me so many important life lessons including teamwork,
It gave women the right to vote which had an enormous impact on American society and culture and subsequently lead to other major benefits for women. Women didn’t have many rights before the Women’s Suffrage Movement. They could not vote, couldn’t own any property after marriage, or if married couldn 't keep their own wages. Men could of beaten their wife
