The Woman’s Suffrage Movement is known for having improved the quality of education for women, but this would not have been possible without the advantages they acquired during the Civil War. During the Civil War women needed to take jobs that were previously held only by men because of the level of education they required. Thus, women were required to have a better education in order to function well in these jobs while the men were at war. Since the jobs of men would undoubtedly be left for women in their absence, they had no other choice but teaching women these professions through a proper education. In addition to the Civil War, the Industrial Revolution was also part of the success for the Woman’s Suffrage Movement because women could operate machinery as easily as men, which meant more jobs were available to them.
The NWSA believed women should be equals with men. Anthony and Stanton traveled around the United States promoting the “benefits of women suffrage.” Like shown in the picture not everyone supported the NWSA’s beliefs. They did not win the right of to vote but gained a large support group and many other activists continued to fight for women’s rights.
and I believe she was, is, and will be amazing. Michelle Obama is what I wrote this essay about and I wouldn’t’ve picked another she is one of the best people to make an impression on the world. She was and still is very influential and as she once said, “I hope that people around the world will be as inspired as I am to step up and to speak out on behalf of girls around the world who struggle to go to school.” After she said that I knew who she really
Today, millions of women can implement their rights to vote in all elections in the united states of America, but this (rights) did not come easily to those women who sacrifice their lives to make this happen. In the speech “Address to Congress on Women’s Suffrage”, Catt delivered her message for women’s right from a firsthand account of what she had experienced as a woman living in the United States of America in the 19th century. She advocated for the rights of women to vote because she believes in equal rights and justice for all citizens. The speech was very successful because of the use of ethos, pathos, and logos.
Sadly enough, most people do not realize this. My knowledge about this topic drives my motivation to pursue a path in the field of public health. I hope to one day implement the reforms discussed above. I find my purpose in this world to empower women for the greater good of the country, just like my mother has empowered me. Although a world without poverty, world hunger, political corruption, economic disparities, inequality, and environmental issues is quite unrealistic and may be impossible to accomplish, it certainly cannot hurt to
MLK: I definitely think the context was important because it gave a basis for the speech to reach people. Never before in our nation’s history have people been willing to make a change and this atmosphere allows me to spread my thoughts. However, language is always important; I use a lot of descriptive and emotive language because only
Women’s suffrage, a harsh topic of the time that many people leaned to the opposite side of Max Eastman. Eastman was a man who didn’t want people to only believe in why women should have rights, he wanted them to understand deeply and like them. At the time, men and women saw the pros and cons of women’s suffrage, but numerous would stick to the cons. Eastman realized that every person on this earth has different ways to go about solving problems; Max Eastman once stated “all persons should be made free in the pursuit of their own tastes or likings.” He defends women, as he can see that in the future, women will make a change in the labor, social and political world.
Immediately following the announcement of my Publisher position, the mayor issued a proclamation naming the month of June after my company, Visit Gay Charlotte. In that moment, I was so proud. To know that not so long ago, I couldn’t even write a complete sentence, but now I have a staff of adults who work with me and look to me for editing and artistic direction. Almost simultaneously, I began a position for a job working for a non-profit that I have previously volunteered for. It’s a job that I am passionate about, and it is a stretch of my skill set on many different levels having to deal so closely with spreadsheets and financials.
The women’s liberation movement was a struggle for equality during the 70’s and 60’s that aimed to allow women have the same rights as men and to dispel stereotypes. This was led by white middle-class women but later joined by women of all races and backgrounds. One of the many things men had an advantage on was remuneration and this was proven true by Ford’s factory in Dagenham, England in 1968 when female machinists were being paid 20% less than their male co-workers. This was brought to the attention of the female staff especially Rose Baland, Elieen Pullen and Vera Sime who complained about it and were denied a pay raise, this all led up to 187 people leaving the factory that day. Thus, forcing them to close it down and the women going
In the Ted Talk Why gender equality is good for everyone- including men, The speaker Michael Kimmel talked about how he wants to recruit men to support gender equality. He acknowledged his experience being a white, straight, middle-class male and how his privilege has been invisible to him his whole life. He goes on to say how when talks to men about gender equality, for some the light bulb goes off but, then they feel the need to take it upon themselves to makes changes and to talk to women about their oppression. He talks about another group of men that work to actively resist gender equality and sees it as a bad thing for men. He also talks about men and their sense of entitlement, he goes as far as to give an example of when he was on a TV show to opposite of four white men, and the title of the show was "A Black Women Stole My Job".
Being able to vote or even having the chance to run as a candidate for U.S. president wasn’t something that was possible one hundred years ago. People reading Redeeming Love will have the understanding of how women were treated back then. It will give the readers a sense of appreciation. Redeeming Love is my all time favorite book. Not only do you get to see the Lord move through people you also get to see how much women’s rights have changed.
I have realized my family’s social group has the wrong idea of sexuality. I know their view is sexist and is unfair to women, it hurts women emotionally, and it limits women; but I had never really thought about the one fact that our textbook states so clearly: “gender roles constrict boys more often than girls” (chapter 12). I know about the wage gap and the feminist movement and the search equality; but I had never thought about the unfair restrictions and expectation that come with being born male. Men are expected to be the strong provider because they are male. They are expected to protect their loved ones physically and financially.
Primary Source Analysis: Why Women Should Vote, 1915 This document was originally published as a pamphlet authored by Jane Addams in the year 1915 as the title suggests. Jane Addams was a female reformer during the Progressive Era who heavily supported the women’s suffrage movement. She also challenged the traditional roles of women before and during this time period. At the young age of seventeen, Addams left home and attended the Rockford Female Seminary and later went on to found the Hull House in Chicago, Illinois (“The Progressive Era,”American Yawp).
For many years, women were not granted the right to vote. Wom-en were thought to only be good at being wives and mothers. However women started to believe they should be treated equal-ly to men and be allowed to vote. While trying to pass the right to vote for women, they had to go through many challeng-es. With the help of many strong female leaders, the four-teenth amendment was eventually passed.
During the progressive era, there were many organization’s that arose to better the American society. Two Progressive reforms that sought to help women were the Women’s Christian Temperance Union, and the Women Suffrage Association. The Women’s Christian Temperance Union or WCTU was founded in November 1874 in Cleveland, Ohio by Frances Willard and Annie Turner Wittenmeyer. This organization's purpose was to educate people about the dangers of alcohol, and eventually prohibit alcohol distribution in America. The Women’s Suffrage Association was founded in New York City in 1869 by Women’s rights activist Susan B. Anthony, and Elizabeth Cady Stanton.
