Women played an inferior role compared to men in society in the 1600s and 1700s. Yes, women have been considered the weaker gender for generations way before then. One of the characteristics we have seen that Europeans classified Native Americans as savages was their “barbaric idea” of gender equality. In those times colonial women had few career choices if any. Men were greater than women during that time and that is why it was rare to find an unmarried woman.
At the beginning of 18th century, women and men were unequal. Women had no right to vote and no right to speak in public. In the family, women needed to listen to men, do the housework and take care of the children. They had longer working hours in poorer conditions than men. Women were live in suffrage and they had no position in the society.
In the 1890s women behaved and were treated differently than they are today. In “The Yellow Wallpaper” and “Why I Wrote The Yellow Wallpaper” Gilman describes how women behaved and how they were treated. Today women have more of a say than they did then, they can do what they think is right even if their husband or doctor says something else. Conclusions that can made from the stories about women behavior and how they were treated. In the 1890s wives were expected to behave with care.
Women’s life in the 1600’s were not your idea life. Women in the 1600s roles were very limited. Women were considered to be inferior to men. They were consider to be the weaker sex, physically and mentally. The thought was that women needed a male figure to take care of them.
My thoughts on this week show is that I believe that Lewis and Clark would not have been able to complete their journey with the help of the native people that they encounter while on the journey. To my knowledge, Indian tribes such as the Mandans help provide supplies and sheltering during the winter. The Nez Perce tribe also helped the men buy supplying food. I would have to disagree with “Thomas Jefferson” that was on this week show because he feels that Sacagawea did not make much of a contribution to the journey. But Sacagawea helped obtain horses for the men and translated for them during the expedition.
In the 1920s and 30s, men did not treat women with much respect, and men did not allow women to do anything, other than be a housewife. Men took charge of women, and if women did earn any money their husband would take it away from them. Women did not have any rights, and nothing was done to change that for a long time. As women did not have a say, they continued to do as they were told and lacked a voice.
INTRODUCTION Women in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries were challenged with expressing themselves in a patriarchal regime that commonly refused to grant merit to women 's ideas. Both political and cultural events during these centuries increased attention to women 's issues such as education reform, and by the end of the eighteenth century, women were increasingly able to speak out against inequity. Though modern feminism was non-existent, many women expressed themselves and revealed the conditions that they used to cope with, albeit often indirectly, using a variety of disruptive and creative tactics. The eighteenth century brought the beginning of the British Cultural Revolution.
Introduction During the sixteenth century there were many beliefs and practices against women. The people of the early modern Europe believed that women were inferior to men and that they had to live under the control of male patriarchs. These doctrines were diffuse among people because they were in the Bible. The society of that time infact was profoundly Christian and essentially maleoriented; the Bible was the Word of God, revealing his plan for mankind: God created Adam first, with Eve as his companion.
The Elizabethan period, named after the greatest Queen of England - Queen Elizabeth I who ruled England during that time, is considered to be the most splendid age of the history of English Literature, the golden age of English history and one of the greatest periods of world history. It was a time of many changes and developments and remarkable feats were achieved during this time. But how different is it exactly from the present? At the same manner, how is it akin to the present? Monarchy was a dominant form of government during the Elizabethan Period, not only in England, but in the surrounding countries as well.
Men have always said that women are a difficult species. This phrase has continued to be mentioned for many centuries nevertheless, no gender can survive alone nor be superior to the other. From Jeannette Rankin, women’s rights advocate, to Hillary Clinton, the first woman to become a presidential nominee of a major political party, they and many others have been in an environment run by men worked to show their abilities to be a part of the government and can be acknowledged as women who are mentally stronger than they once were. Women in politics are judged because of their age and gender which, may make them feel the need to climb various milestones to obtain positions in politics. Throughout history, women have not been treated equal because at a point in time they weren’t allowed to vote, weren’t allowed to have a word about anything, and were against discrimination.
