Arguably women achieved the vote as the social position of women was improving which helped erode male prejudices against them. The Married Women’s Property Act of 1882 and 1893 granted women full legal control of all property they had owned at marriage or that they had gained after marriage, by earnings or inheritance. Changing attitudes was therefore an important factor in winning women the vote in 1918 The militant suffragettes
Firstly, those privileged through property or education. Secondly the petty-bourgeoisie (the self-employed and managers), then the white-collar worker technicians which is the lower middles class. Lastly, the manual workers, being the lower class. These four different groups are Weber’s way of defining class in terms of market position. Weber believed it was linked to the type of job people could get, Weber thought differently to Marx about this, as marx believed it was due to owning factories or other resources, and weber thought it was due to skills and qualifications.
Social class may also refer to any particular level in such a hierarchy.” Sociologists have given a threefold classification of classes which consists of upper class, middle class and working class. Social class, in regards to sociology usually refers to the primary system of social stratification. Social stratification is “the presence [in society] of distinct social groups which are ranked one above the other in terms of factors such as prestige and wealth.” (Haralambos and Holborn.
Sparta put a military attitude in its society and made it the first priority to have a powerful army. The Athenians type of government, might have given the society More freedom, but in my opinion I think this was not the best form of government at this time. The democratic system in Athens cannot really be called a true democracy since it had several flaws in the government and the way it worked. For the way the voting worked
The first issue was that of what people would be involved in the government. This problem was centered on the idea of different classes of people that were in the nation. By limiting the types of people in the government however, it would limit the types of personalities that would play a role in the government. Some argued that the private men, the working class individuals who represented the majority, had no business being involved in politics and government. Thomas Gordon argued against this because he thought that if anyone would know how the government worked, it would be the private men.
New weaponry made in the war made the king stronger against nobles. Because the king was the only one who could afford cannons, it made it impossible for the nobles to assert their
Law Big Time Toymaker Big Time Toymaker At what point did, if ever, did the parties have a contract? Big Time Toymaker did not consent to a contract but within that agreement Chou weas notified three days before the 90-day expiration that the two agreeing parties did decide to on agreeable terms about the distribution of the company’s products. When BTT decided to follow through with these plans Chou did feel that it was necessary to have a written agreement which was never complete due to interest of the oral distribution process. The only agreement that was reached was an Oral agreement, however without legal binding draft and the signature of agreements, this is considered to be a non-contractual agreement. What facts may weigh in favor of or against Chou in terms of the parties’ objective intent to contract?
Working in the emergency department of our local hospital, I see so many young girls ranging from fourteen (14) and older having babies while still being babies themselves. Some are going on baby number two. Although I don’t feel like they are necessarily throwing their lives away, they are definitely making high school and the continuance of a college career a challenge. One could say this is where, between being married young and having babies’ young, the age old saying “barefoot and pregnant” comes into play. I read an article on the internet that said Loretta Lynn once stated in an interview that she had four babies before she ever knew why she was having
This provides your essay with a clear, structured argument. In 1918, the Representation of the People Act gave women over 30 the vote, if they owned property or were married to a property owner. The major reason for women receiving the vote has been a fundamental source of debate amongst historians. Whilst traditional schools of thought argue that women’s work during WWI radically changed male ideas about their role in society with traditional historians such as Ray suggesting that giving women the vote in 1918 was almost a ‘thank you’ for their efforts, revisionist historians, however, find this analysis too simplistic. AJP Taylor, for example, argues that the war ‘smoothed the way for democracy’ and so there are other factors of significance, such as, suffrage campaign groups (WSPU & NUWSS) and growing equality with men.
