When the United States grew involved in World War 1 the women who took part in the Silent Sentinel protests were labeled unpatriotic. How could people protest against the leader of their country during a time of war? How could women try to tear the country in half during a time where everyone must stand strong together? The women were harshly treated for their alienated actions. Paul, aware of the war and the accusations made against herself, continued to lead the Silent Sentinels in picketing ahead of the White House regardless of the disrespect they presented.

Alice Paul proved she was a brave woman when she stood outside of the White House to protest about women’s suffrage. The signs the picketers held were created intending to put conflict towards President Wilson.

While they were in prison, Paul started a hunger strike by herself first and then eventually the other National Women’s Party members went on a hunger strike to prove that they weren’t giving up and would fight through anything. Alice and a few others were force fed through a torturous method.
Laila again struggled for her second child, again a sacrifice, even when the child this time belonged to Rasheed. The doctor said, “if we delay, you will lose the baby” “then cut me open....cut me open and give me my baby. (P- 283)” the strength and edurance of a woman has no end. The introductoion of zalmai, a male child, as a counterpart to the female child, aziza, serves to illustrate further the unfair treatment of woman under the present government.

In Becoming members of Society: Learning the Social Meanings of Gender by Aaron H. Devor it shows that gender is a merely socially constructed and assigned and in Girl by Jamaica Kincaid that is exactly what’s

That girls should be in a stupid bliss so it wouldn’t affect them because they wouldn’t be able to do anything about it. Daisy and Tom’s love wasn’t real love because if it was he would have been there for his daughters birth instead of God knows with whom. F. Scott Fitzgerald portrays women as hopeless and better off being stupid so they wouldn’t process and realize that their husband didn’t really love them and that love is just a unrealistic dream. Further, a modern writer Zora Neale Hurston wrote in her short story about a married couple in a small community. Where the wife named Lena has an open affair in front of the town and her husband.

Creating this good vs. bad scenario, she reaches the heart of every female in the audience and makes every woman feel as if she is speaking directly to them. Every woman hearing the speech will associate the words to their own lives, and when a woman does this she will feel angry at her many injustices. After creating a passionate, angry, justice seeking atmosphere, Stanton starts to twist in logical appeals with the emotions when she says “remember that man, who represents but half a complete being, with but half an idea on every subject, has undertaken the absolute control of all sublunary matters.” By the time she is done speaking, every woman in the house will be 100 times more passionate about suffrage. Each individual woman in the

During these protest these women would be harassed by police forces (similar to civil rights protest). This further shows the corruption in the justice system. The Mothers focused on the fact that many of their daughters have been kidnapped and nothing is being done about it by the government. After many protest the Mothers would gain international attention and get help running as an official program. Since then the Mothers of Plaza de Mayo have help forge many other female organizations and provide a political voice for women (Speaking Truth to Power Madres of the Plaza De Mayo).

Singer Michel 'le accused him of physical abuse when they were together as a couple, but took no steps to initiate legal action.
