The fact that she had a son later reveals the unfair gender roles of the child, compared to the idea of if she had a daughter. By choice, the Third Princess became a nun and it’s believed by the Japanese that “a girl might seem to invite bad luck [if] the mother is a nun. But with a boy it makes no difference.” (Tale of Genji, pg. 648) Through superstition, the gender of a child coming into an Aristocratic heritage makes all the difference for the future of the family. A daughter would have had different requirements growing up and it was believed that the family might have been cursed with bad luck because the mother became a Nun.
Many middle class women were unhappy about this, and after the freedoms and empowerment of women during Weimar they did not like the new constrictions – it seemed almost like a step back for them. However, financial incentives were given to women to stay home and have children, and awards were granted depending on how many children a woman had – the more children, the higher ranking the award. They were told that it was their responsibility to provide soldiers for the future. As a result of this, many more women became mothers than might have down normally. Married couples were encouraged to divorce if their partner was infertile and many women joined Nazi women’s organisations.
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
Even though women had the right to vote for a short time in the state of New Jersey, the idea of letting women vote was seen as ridiculous by most of the population. Many thought that women weren't suited to vote because of their gender. Although there were some efforts, such as the Seneca Falls Convention, to gain more rights for women, these efforts were not highly effective. Even the organizer of the Seneca Falls Convention, Lucretia Mott, believed women's suffrage too radical of an idea at the time. The removal of Native American tribes from their homelands was another undemocratic trend that was a large party of the 'Jacksonian Democracy' era.
It could be argued that Mazzini’s ideas were the main reason for the slow progress of national unity in Italy in the years 1815-48. A key point to this reason is that Mazzini’s ideas held no interest to the majority of the Italian population. One of Mazzini’s beliefs was that ‘every man is equal’ and is a reason why he was very unpopular with the middle, upper and aristocratic members of society as they did not wish to lose their power influence or money. This made it difficult for Mazzini to obtain national unification as a majority of powerful and influential people in Italy were against his ideologies; this meant that the progress of national unification was very slow as a large amount of people opposed his views. He also wanted a strong central government and believed this could be achieved through a series of revolutions.

Culture was suppressed and did not improve notably. For the majority of Soviet citizens, life under Stalin did not improve a lot. Rights of women and family life were improved under Stalin’s rule. During the 1920, under Lenin the Soviet government had tried to weaken the family as a unit of society because it believed it exploited women. Government propaganda, as early as the 1920’s emphasised the role of woman workers as well as homemakers.
Some sociologists suggests that this change led to more equality in modern family life. However, not everyone agrees with this conclusion. Feminists are especially cautious about drawing this conclusion because they believe that there are still inequalities of power and control which persists in modern family relationships. In Talcott Parsons' 1955 functionalist model of the family, he suggests that in the traditional nuclear family, the roles of husbands and wives were naturally segregated(separate and distinct from one another). Women are naturally more suited to take on the expressive role which involves socialisation of the children and meet the family's emotional needs.
The main supporters of Italian unification were, instead, the middle and upper classes therefore possibly the reason why the revolutions failed was due to the lack of support Another reason for Italian Unification failure was the influence of Austria over Italian provinces. Austria had very strong domination over Italy. It had agreements with Ferdinand, king of Kingdom of the 2 Sicilies, and helped the pope maintain his kingdom. Only Piedmont Sardinia wasn't influenced by Austria. The rulers of Parma, Modena and Tuscany were directly or indirectly related with the House of Hapsburg.
Although this seems to be a ridiculous reason to hate the male population, it is Schlafly’s way of making their movement seem ridiculous. She also explains that woman have a natural instinct of maternity, that no one can teach them how to be a mom, which defends her opinion that men and woman are also different emotionally and psychologically. Sally Staples wrote and article titled “Who Will Rock the Cradle” in 1997. She proclaims a lot of the same worries as Schlafly in her book titled the same. In both articles the authors describe the worry of leaving a newborn child with a new nanny instead of their
