She wanted to have parades, public protests, and picketed of the White House during World War One. The picketers were arrested and jailed. In jail they went on hunger strikes. These women were determined to get their way. They no longer were going to put up with being treated
Women used many different methods to earn the right to vote in the Women’s Suffrage Movement. One method women used to earn support is that they organized a parade in Washington, D.C., the same day the president was coming into town so that there was large crowds. Many of the people in the crowd were men who, along with drinking also disagreed with the right for women to vote. They began to yell then even throw objects at the women walking in the parade. Eventually, the police walked away giving the men the opportunity to attack.
After her husband's death, she created the Women's Social and Political Union along several colleagues in 1903, which had the main purpose of taking direct action to win the vote. This organisation gained recognition for its high-profile tactics and violent acts such as bombing and arson. Her daughters, specially Christabel and Sylvia, also joined the WSPU and its cause. Their motto was “Deeds, not words” also written on Emily Davison's tombstone. Her involvement with the movement got her arrested on numerous occasions and she also went on hunger strikes which ended with unfortunate episodes of force-feeding which she explains in the
Women used many different methods to earn the right to vote in the Women’s Suffrage Movement. One of these methods was parading. Women formed a huge parade to try to gain rights. Instead, they got papers and bottles thrown at them. They were verbally harassed by men on the side.
The murders served as a cautionary tale to women who dared to walk the streets alone, and a means of “keeping them disciplined” (Still Public). A direct result from these murders was a phenomenon that still happens very, very often today: victim blaming (Our Jack). In other words, these murders have been blown off often with a, “she had it coming” instead of properly attributing the fault of the murder to the murderer (Our Jack). Women of the time were terrified to have to walk the streets alone for any reason, and would be shamed for doing so should anything happen to them regardless of their situation (Our Jack). It also sparked many “puritan campaigns” against prostitution, which shows where the people’s priorities truly lied (Still Public).
This is a woman who is unhappy and ends up killing her husband. But, this play has shown me the flaws in that society as the author depicts them such as abortion and homosexuality. I found the play to be somewhat difficult to follow along with because there were so many characters that were speaking especially in the first scene. The first scene depicts a chaotic business area as the clerks were working and the numbers are called out at a high speed. When we watched the video of the first scene in class, it made more sense to me.
In The Crucible, by Arthur Miller, explores the witch trials in Salem 1692 which in contrast of this, relationships change a lot because of tension with fellow townspeople. Many people were jealous of other rapports so they were bound to interfere with those people. Interfering with others relations destroys the town slowly through the whole story. Abigail and Proctor’s relationship changes, then Elizabeth and Proctor’s, then finally Parris and Abigail’s. These relations were the biggest changes in the story but they did have plenty more.
There was over a hundred women marching with signs. Women at the protest bashed the products advertised at the pageant and companies who used the contest to promote their products. At the protest, the feminist gathered, decided to boycott of the companies that sponsored the pageant. The Feminist thought that the pageant encouraged girls to want be Miss America. Some considered the pageant racist, because there had never been a black Miss America before.
During The Red Scare, there was a huge breakout of mass hysteria due to fears about the threat of communism . The way the US responds to Communism threat is: “A number of government officials took strong, and sometimes unlawful, actions against labor leaders, foreigners, and others” (manythings.org 165) …… Similarly to The Crucible, the people who were put on trial and accused without proper evidence were innocent which caused mass hysteria as well. An example from Mary Warren tries to tell the lies that the girls are covering: “I cannot tell how, but I did. I - I heard the other girls screaming, and you, Your Honor, you seemed to believe them, and I - It were only sport in the beginning, sir, but then the whole world cried spirits, spirits, and I - I promise you, Mr. Danforth, I only thought I saw them but I did not.” (Miller
Protesters took to the streets protesting against the government, and this practically meant violence was an everyday occurrence in her lifetime. She suffered discrimination and harsh laws that were aimed at demoting the status of women in the society. Unlike in her younger years prior to 1980 when Marji lived freely and expressed herself without fear, the introduction of Islamic laws marked the beginning of the dark days in her life. The sight of violence and abuse of human rights was not
One of the main things she incorporates throughout her speech is hyperbole. She uses this exaggeration in a way that makes sure every single person who leaves the convention after her speech will know exactly what her message was. The problem Stanton was discussing was very serious and many were brushing it off like it doesn 't matter. Woman suffrage was not being taken seriously by males. In her speech Stanton uses hyperbole to demand to be heard.
