Frederick William shared this view and was unwilling to potentially cause a war with such a powerful state. This caused the Frankfurt Parliament to fail because Prussia did not grasp the opportunity to unite and neither did the King, therefore Germany remained divided. Although he desired power, William IV was not willing to put himself and Prussia under control of the Frankfurt Parliament as he distrusted ‘the gentlemen of Frankfurt’. This meant that the Parliament had no real leader, and so lost support because people distrusted the parliament as an influential figure stated he would not be associated with them. This aided in causing the failure of the Parliament because with no real leader, no one could influence the masses or help to make decisions.
The suffragette’s militancy tactics they used to try and pressure the government into giving them the vote was an important reason as to why they hadn’t achieved the right to vote by 1914. However this was not the only reason, it was also because of Asquith’s personal beliefs that he would lose the vote to the Conservatives if women were given the right to vote. Another reason is that women’s role in society was originally to stay at home and look after the man and their house while the men played the political role, and men didn’t want this to change. Source B and Source C suggest that the suffragette’s militant tactics was the reason as to why women didn’t get the vote by 1914, but source A suggests otherwise. Source B comes from a labour party MP, Ramsay MacDonald who does support a revolution but he does not believe being violent by “breaking windows” is the way to do this.
As a result Edward decided to remove the Archbishop of York who had approved the marriage. This results in Warwick changing his alliance to Henry VI. Furthermore Edward IV had believed it was best to marry Elizabeth Woodville, for love rather than political reasons. This many nobles had seen as a mistake because their marriage did not create any alliances for England. Their marriage had also managed to alienate many of the nobles.
Many believe that the fact that Lloyd George replaced Asquith as Prime Minister in 1916 held reasonable importance. Asquith was not a supporter of women’s suffrage and had been against giving women the vote. Paula Bartley says “Asquith’s remarks about the female electors of Paisley in 1920 suggest he still resented women’s involvement in Parliament – ‘a dim lot, for the most part hopelessly ignorant of politics’.” This sums up his feeling towards women. Lloyd George, on the other hand, “was sympathetic to women’s suffrage.” Another reason for women gaining enfranchisement was because other countries were doing it too and Britain felt the need to comply. Women in New Zealand were enfranchised in 1893, women in Australia in 1902 and women in Canada in 1917.
But Maggie was a naive political candidate. She didn’t know what it took to raise money. She swore she wouldn’t do the negative campaigning stuff. And she had a hard time swallowing people judging her and always cutting her down on her political beliefs and she could not stand the fact that people didn’t like her . This included favoring a woman’s right to choose when it came to abortion, as well as favoring
This source is not reliable because it seems that Lord Lansdowne is using his opinion and his status/authority to try and get the public to agree with him wanting the war to end which suggests it is not a genuine concern of Lord Lansdowne which may affect the usefulness of this source. Source 2 also agrees to a far extent because it is a letter from Vera Brittan to her brother saying that she wanted the war to continue even though she was against war and condemned it. This source is very reliable because the letter is from Vera Brittan whose fiancé died of wounds from the war which means the British public could relate to her emotionally. In addition Source 3 also agrees to an extent because it was a reply to a letter from a common soldier which entailed the support from women to the soldiers in the war. This source may not be reliable because it is only one person’s opinion.
Washington and Monroe believed that the United States should not become involved in European affairs because of the weakness of the US. They didn’t want to get involved in foreign affairs because they did not have the muscle to deal with war if war should come. They figured that it was better to not get involved than to get involved and work themselves into a corner. It is possible to follow the Monroe Doctrine today, if one is referring to political affairs, and not to trade. Just because its possible doesn’t mean we should or are doing it.
However I do sympathise for her in the way that she cant get a divorce. I fell sorry for her because if she wanted to split up with her husband it couldn’t be in her choices because in the Victorian times it was frowned upon, and people would think differently of her if she was to get a divorce. Another reason I don’t really sympathise for porphyria is that she knows in those days that if you were to sleep with someone else outside of
94. Romney v. United States fought against this ruling and eventually realized that they could not win this battle which lead to the renouncing of polygamy. While I agree that all beliefs are not right as in the book which states “Thugs of India imagined that their belief in the right of assassination was a religious belief; but their thinking so did not make it so.Yes it does not make it right because they believe in polygamy but it’s very hard to take away something someone belief started from, is based on and ask them to still believe in the same way as the founders who beliefs they are carrying out. In today’s time Mormons still exist and each year missionaries go out to countries to convince people to transform to their beliefs. In the end I believe we can’t take away the Mormons main beliefs from them and we shouldn’t punish them for doing it as long as they it in their own society.
However for both Bronte and Austen, relationships were unconventional for their time, as neither of the women married. Austen’s novel was much more widely accepted, as the heroine does not condone the inappropriate relationship that begins to form between Isabella and Captain Tilney. “His behaviour was so incompatible with a knowledge of Isabella’s engagement” Austen is satirical and ironic Cathy and Heathcliff’s relationship becomes strained and unobtainable because of the pressures society imposes on Cathy to marry for status and weath. Their family and society forbid Cathy and Heathcliff’s love throughout the novel. Critic Suzanne Birkett suggest ‘She later marries Edgar and comes to feel that she is imprisoned by society’s rules.’ As although Cathy has made a wise choice in marrying Edgar because ‘He will be rich’, her forbidden love for Heathcliff still hinders her when Heathcliff once again returns in chapter ten.
