“The Saint-Simonians were the earliest and most popular of these utopian socialist feminists” (Moses, 1982: 241). In this essay I will discuss how the “woman question” emerged through the ideology of the Saint-Simonians and whether their aims and actions were to benefit women, as they claimed, or rather to satisfy the ego of their leader, Prosper Enfantin. I will also consider what measures the women involved in this movement took to ensure their own emancipation and to what extent this was due to their involvement in the Saint-Simonian movement.

During the first half of the twentieth century, the advertising industry saw great advancements and changes as a whole. The industry itself became more respected, and consumer behaviour more closely watched.

Queen Elizabeth I was responsible for the Golden Age of England, achieved through perseverance, strong will, intelligence, and personal sacrifice for the good of the English people.

The Effect of World War II on American Culture The Second World War was a time of tremendous change throughout the globe. This was no different in the United States, where cultural effects shaped a generation and contributed significantly to a national identity that still has remnants in American culture today.
