Because women are sometimes stereotyped as the weaker sex, they become disadvantaged and don’t share many of the privileges men are given. This is why feminism is such an important matter today. Feminism is a broad social movement that strives for equality for women and seeks to end of sexism in all forms (Topics in Feminism). However, negative attitudes toward feminism have continued to exist. Feminists are often stereotyped as angry, man-hating, unattractive women who scream absurdly about their political views.
What would Alice Paul and Snookie even talk about, would they become enemies or best of friends? Snookie in my opinion is weak minded and I think that Alice Paul who was an intelligent human being would probably convince Snookie to fight for women’s rights. Snookie is perceived as a drunken woman who has no respect for her body in more than one way would really discourage Alice Paul. Alice Paul would see that all of that pain and suffering she went through it all for nothing. Women still do not respect themselves especially since Snookie is so popular among viewers of television and other women want to be like Snookie.
Alice Paul initially was apart of the National American Woman Suffrage Association (NAWSA), which was formed in 1890. Woman's suffragists such as Susan B. Anthony, Carrie Chapman Catt, and Anna Howard Shaw were highly involved with NAWSA. Alice Paul and Lucy Burns used different, more aggressive methods than other women suffragists before them. Before President Woodrow Wilson's Inauguration, Alice Paul had planned a Woman's rights parade to help expand her opinion that women should have the right to vote. Many men were outraged by this parade and ended the parade in a brawl.
Despite the publicity gained from this particular newspaper being quite derrogative towards the suffragettes, publicity was gained. It could be said that this made people realise that the Suffragettes were prepared to go to great lengths for suffrage. However, in reality if this particular paper was the only paper that a person read, all they would gain from reading this article is the fact that the Suffragettes are immature, reckless and quite frankly idiotic people who most definitely could not be trusted with the vote. We have to take into consideration that this source is not typical, being a conservative paper, addmitting that the action was a leap forward for the Suffraggettes would be kicking themselves in the teeth. Source 11 is an extract from Christabel Pankhurst's autobiography (Emeline's sister.)
Nicole Macaluso Ms. Young U.S History 18 December 2012 Iron Jawed Angels Iron Jawed Angels is a movie set in the 20th century in which women fight for the right to vote and women’s citizenship. Women were not treated as equals and they demanded change. Two very important women, Alice Paul and Lucy Burns, play major roles in getting the 19th amendment. This amendment gave women the right to vote. However, the journey to get this privilege was not an easy task.
It was inevitable for women not to get the right to vote. What helped push women get the right to vote, were the improvements in economy, political and social changes. There were a couple of political factors that took place that helped women fight for their rights to vote. Some of these factors were people that did debates and speeches on why women should have a right to vote. One of these people was Benjamin Disraeli who was a conservative Party Leader in 1866, who was speaking during a debate on the second reform bill and said “I do not see, when she has so much to do with the state and the church, on what reasons, if you come to right, she has not a right to vote”, here he is trying to say that a women does a lot of work for the country and work in the church, but after all of that she still doesn’t get the right to vote.
Some effects were increase in lifestyle but some people believed that women did not benefit from the war. We will see how toxic gases often killed women and lifestyles were enlightened some effects were increase of jobs and better lifestyle but some people believe women did not benefit from the great war Women were used for workers since the men had all gone off to war. It meant also that the suffragettes stopped their violent campaigning which made people respect women who wanted suffrage for women, especially MP's. The work women did as nurses and factory workers made the government want to reward them so they said women could work, but only women over 30. Negatives were, like any war, they lost family members etc.
Instead of using a regular “okay”, Vernon inserts an “OK” to show her sarcastic anger towards one of her colleagues who disagrees with her opinion. You can tell she is immediately annoyed with peoples lack of respect of her opinion. With the emotion she is trying to get him to agree or even just compromise with the fact she wants nothing to do with having a child. By using such a strong emotion like anger she is adding passion to the argument; angry words like scold, attacks, selfless and deconstructed add fuel to the passage by giving the readers a feeling to have instead of just being neutral and it helps the readers gain an emotional tie and move over to “her side”. Having the readers believe she has a right to her own opinion right of the bat gives the author, Vernon, an upper-hand moving on to the rest of the article.
This links to society, where women are generally paid less than men to complete the same jobs, yet not enough people care and are complacent and therefore this issue cannot be improved. By showing the oppression of women in the text, Atwood has shown how complacency towards the oppression of women can have serious implications and effect women in every day society. Paragraph 2. Hypocritical and corrupt nature of people in authority. The commander created the regime but he doesn’t enjoy his current situation and is unhappy with his wife Serena Joy.
After all, in countries such as New Zealand (1893), Australia (1901), Finland (1906) or Norway (1913) women got the vote before the war began, whereas others such as Denmark (1915), Iceland (1915), Holland (1917) or Sweden (1919) gave it to women during the war without being involved in it. (http://www.firstworldwar.com/features/womenww1_three.htm) Women did make steps when it came to labor, but many women also looked down on the working class feminists. They thought it was unnecessary, and women should have their own place in the home
