Keywords: Elizabeth Ross Haynes; History; African Americans; Women; Social Welfare; Labor An African American Reformer of Womanist Consciousness 1908-1940 Like most African American women of her time Haynes considered herself as a role model, she kept herself involved in researching, writing, and speaking about the issues of women’s labor, women’s roles in the political arena and the use of women’s talents and skills. She can be described as one of the most important pioneer in the women’s movement of the Progressive Era and beyond. Elizabeth Haynes was virtually ignored in the studies of women’s contributions to social welfare history and to the development of social welfare and institutions for African Americans and their community. The visibility of African American women in these times leaves gaps in the social workers’ perception that
I decided then, rather than to ignore her to actually appreciated her persistence. I believe that this persistence and ceaselessness is what helped her battle the disease. I cannot imagine taking these serious subjects and smiling and joking about them in the manner that she was able to, but she somehow always did. Taking on the role as the mother of me and my 2 sisters, plus her own 2 daughters; she never showed that things were too much for her to handle on her own. She lived her life to the fullest and, I think in some small way her cancer made her cherish what she had even more.

She was a pioneer not only for women, but for all people. She inspired not only black woman, but she inspired businessmen, all women, and America people in general. Being born in Richmond, Virginia as a black woman not only was a blessing but it inspired her to become more than just a black woman, it inspired her to become a teacher, an editor, an entrepreneur and a community activist. But
An easy-to-read collection of short essays meant to uplift and inspire soccer moms everywhere, this addition to the Don't Sweat the Small Stuff series offers nothing more nor less than its predecessors. Carlson (whose husband, Richard, wrote the original book) joined him in writing Don't Sweat the Small Stuff in Love. This time, she relates many first-person stories from her own life and those of her friends in a just-between-us-girls tone that's based in part on gender stereotypes (e.g., "our gift of female intuition"; "our sensitive natures"). Her chatty pep talks cover such topics as comparing oneself to media images, overextending oneself, preventing and coping with stress and learning to say "no." Carlson advises women to appreciate their children's "fleeting" childhoods, to speak and listen from a place of love, to swallow angry words and gossip, to take time for themselves, to nurture friendships with other women and to keep tabs on their financial position and marketability in case they lose their spouse through death or divorce.

After reading the entire essay, it is clear that the general topic of “On Being a Cripple” is to be content and proud of what you do or do not have. By not calling herself ‘disabled,’ she shows great respect for the fact that she is able to do many things. She does not always let her Multiple Sclerosis (MS) keep her from being herself on a daily basis. Although she admits to having her bad days, she is defiant in the fact that this disease is just a part of life. We all go through life.
Through her unconventional femininity and rebellious approach to life, Jordan epitomized a breed of young women who threatened the traditional roles and expectations of their gender. Due to the prominence of the flapper image during the Jazz Age, Fitzgerald created the character of Jordan Baker to fit this stereotype. When Nick first encounters her, she is “extended full length at her end of the Buchanans’ divan”. This relaxed position suggests that she has a care-free attitude, which was common for females in this era. The narrator also claims that Jordan’s “complete self sufficiency draws a stunned tribute from him”.
Her almond shaped eyes are always bright and cheerful. However, those eyes can be so fierce at times. She has this look, which I refer to as the “death stare.” The “death stare” can make anyone break down. My mother knows when you’re lying, and she will make you speak the truth. My mother’s wrinkles do not detract from her beauty.
