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.
Going back all the way to the American Revolution women served in the military. They were only allowed to serve as nurses until World War I. Then they were trained to be stenographers and combat phone operators. Women are allowed to serve in combat now but not in a combat military occupational specialty (MOS). Even to this day the question still remains “Should women be able to serve in combat military occupational specialties?” Combat military occupational specialties are the jobs in the military that take you face to face with the enemy on a daily basis.
But despite her yearning, it all started slowly tearing the family apart. Jeanne states “Mama tried to hold us together for a while, but it was hopeless (Houston and Houston 36).” Mama was also a very strong, hard worker and worked multiple jobs in the camps for a while. We can see this strength and perseverance in Jeanne as she grows up. When she starts to feel the pressure and pain of prejudice that exists against her race, she doesn’t let people walk all over her, yet she doesn’t let it bring her down either. If she was discriminated against in one of the activities she took part in, she moved right on to the next one and tried equally as hard to be recognized for the talent she has.
Before the revolution men think that women are nothing other than their property who were only also supposed to do housework and raise children. Men had been suspended from participation in public life for a while because they went to the war, which allow women to participate with a social activities for their own country. Subsequently, women work in a factories, support the American soldiers by providing them uniform, resources, and provisions. Moreover, some women fight with british so,they can boycott good taxed, which affected the course of the war. All of this shows that women started to get more
Ever since I was young, I knew that my mother did not have it easy when she came to America. She was a strong single mother, who could not speak English, living in a foreign land. Knowing that my mother had sacrificed everything she had in hope of establishing a better future and life for me, I had to repay her. My mother used to be a nail technician inevitably she had to endure ignorant remarks from customers simply because she could not speak English. In addition to her suffering, her constant back pains at night made me want to alleviate all of her pain, sadly, all I could do was offer her heat patches.
These divisions went far beyond cotton and economics. A country continuously divided on this major issue could not have survived. The fight over the expansion of slavery into the territories is a persistent problem in antebellum history. This problem caused strife between North and South lasting decades. Progress, greed, racism, and economic gain are the causes of much bloodshed and almost the complete destruction of a nation.

The four bloody years spread havoc across the U.S. over the fight for slavery. This war left a mark on the American society for as long as it stands. One of its most bloody battles, The Battle of Gettysburg, caused the death or injury of 51,000 soldiers. This battle remains in U.S. history as one of the most catastrophic battles of all time. Loiselle Brett expresses this battle as being, “ A major battle was about to begin, without the knowledge of either army's commander.” Little did both
In life, my mother has also persevered with many bosses who did not treat her the way she deserved. In contrast to Buck, my mother had to pay for food and school. They both worked equally as long and hard. One with provided food, one without. In comparison to Buck my mother worked strenuously to reach her goal, knowing it would pay off for them later in life.
First of all, female need to undertake many duties, not only the work, but also cooking, taking care with children and so on. I believe many of your guys sitting here are females.

Even some people said that men have the work stress and they just need to make money for their family.

This positive outlook was not kept for long and as the death rate piled up and nations were not able to feed their people, women growing accustomed to, ¨empty hands and still emptier stomachs,¨(Document 6). By 1916 the outlook had changed and many people did not glorify war but saw it as the devastating event it truly was. ¨Gone was the euphoria. Gone the Patriotic noise in the streets,¨ (Document 7), writes a German socialist Rosa Luxemburg who describes his town in which there was ¨misery and despair everywhere,¨ (Document 7). By 1916 the war had become unpopular and many were ready to be out of it
Nineteenth century America was a time when women were expected to follow the cult of domesticity, a widely accepted opinion at the time. While fathers, brothers, sons, husbands and other male loved ones went off to fight in the American Civil War, women were left behind to take care of the remaining members of the family. “It was in the home that woman’s influence was paramount and her position assured.” For some women, this was enough, however, there were others who were not satisfied with this idea, and felt as though they were meant to become something more. However, there were some opportunities for women to step outside of the social customs and gender roles of the time. In fact, “the Civil War dramatically tested those boundaries of
