The Women’s Right Movement changed the lives of the American Women for the better, due to gaining the right to vote, access to higher education, and the opportunity to enter the workforce. Before the reform movements of Women’s right, the American women were discriminated in society, home life, education, and the workforce. Women in the 1800s could not only vote, but they also were forbidden to speak in public. They were voiceless and had no self-confidence, they dependent men, since they had little to no rights (Bonnie and Ruthsdotter). Before the reform movement, the American Women were voiceless, they had no say in society, however the reform movement will soon change that.
Japanese culture is different than ours, and only specific reasons are allowed in order to have the procedure done. In Japan, pregnant women are not required to give the reason. The role of women in Japanese society has progressed more rapidly than many Asiatic cultures; however certain rights have not been bestowed. Women are not only active members of the workforce, they are also politically involved and allowed to act as members of the National Diet, consisting of a house of representatives and house of counselors. However, women are still facing a lack of respect, an issue brought to focus in the current series of events regarding “comfort women” in the Second World War.

This is not to say not all women were un-educated, it is estimated that by the end of the Edo period 20 percent of the female population held some degree of literacy as a result of small Terakoya schools, however this number is relatively small compared to the 60 percent of educated males. After the fall of the shogonate, the Meiji restoration marked a change in the norms and values associated with education in Japan. The new government put Japan into a process of rapid modernization in an attempt to bring it up to standard with the western nations it had been isolated from during the Edo period. The Meiji government believed that a modernized society needed an organized education system in order to make it united and strong as well as aid with industrialization to catch up with western technology and economic status.

Far from knowing Chinese culture and without the awareness to know, the mother generation is alien and ridiculous to them. June considers her mother and Auntie Am-mei’s dress as “too fancy for real Chinese people and too strange for American parties”, and she even imagined Joy Luck “was a shameful Chinese custom, like the secret gathering of the Ku Klux Kan or the tom-tom dancers of TV Indians preparing for war.

Women voice Speech transcript Good morning ladies and gentlemen, Being a woman in the society which men seems to have more advantages, and even though it has been a long history of feminism movement, today we can still see that women do not get the equal opportunities as men do. That is why it is very important to keep challenging the society on stereotype about women. Part of this is educating the young generation about what it is really like to be a woman and inspiring them to speak up about this issue. Today I am going to suggest the three very useful and effective texts to be included in a new resource titled Women voice which is going to be used by senior students. First of all, the text I have chosen is the speech by Shirley Chiholm “Equal rights for Women” which was addressed to the United States House Of Representatives in 1969.
Not lazy like American people.”’(Tan, 91) Lindo Jong showed extreme pride in her home country while shining a stereotypically negative light on Americans. Little did she know that her deceptive daughter was interested in learning more about “torture” than “Chinese.” Lindo’s nationalistic behavior showed her slight disapproval of Americans and caused Waverly to question her engagement to Rich.

Despite the culture difference, the pairs were also in fact mother and daughter. The mothers’ more traditional ways disputed with the daughters’ modernistic ideas.
IAH 201: U.S. & The World (D) The Women’s Rights Movement Starting In the early 1800s women began to question their general role in society and how it is unjust and unfair. Interestingly the educated radicals and working class women in early 1800s were still concerned with the roles and rights of women, they did not classify suffrage as being the prominent issue. The idea of women’s suffrage did not become the primary goal of the Women’s rights movement until around the 1850s, and then remained the primary goal up until 1920 when women finally achieved the right to vote. Further, there were many significant male and female figuresthat played crucial roles in the Women’s rights movements that eventually led to, but didn’t stop at, the achievement of women’s right to vote in 1920. It was in the early 1800s when women began to question various issues such as their roles in society and their rights as a woman, or their lack of rights and unjust inequality in comparison to males.
