Even slaves had the right to vote before women even could. Women were arrested just for voting, for speaking up for what they wanted to be heard. Rosa Parks was a great inspiration to most women because she stood up to what she believed in and for what was right. She believed that women should be treated equal and people had no choice but to listen to what she had to say. Susan B. Anthony was another great inspiration to the women society.
Eleanor Roosevelt extraordinarily differed from the expected role of women in her period, she had become recognised as more than just the First Lady of America, taking a far more politically active role than any other first lady before. More predominantly the influence and achievement of impact of her unceasing activist enthusiasm aided people of suffering and need, recognising all Americans as equals regardless of gender, colour and status. Effortlessly Eleanor strongly vocalised, aspired and achieved many efforts which would aid American society, thus when becoming Franklin Roosevelt’s wife, surrounded by the political world, her enthusiasm to “help people help themselves” expanded her achievements on an international level too. During WW1, Franklin was appointed Assistant Navy Secretary, which gave Eleanor her first opportunities of aid in government support extending her love for voluntary work. She took on the role of fulfilling social obligations and voluntary jobs such as working for two private aid organisations which assumed a quasi-government role in providing supplemental care for seaman and all servicemen, generally the Navy Relief Society, which focused on the special needs of sailors and the American Red Cross.
It is undeniable that the suffragette movement had a profound effect on the course of women’s history. Many believe they were directly accountable for granting women suffrage. Yet, for others, their audacity caused ‘more harm than good’1 , and their militancy delayed enfranchisement. Some sources assessed here share that opinion and suggest militancy caused harmful publicity that deterred other women from joining them. In general, however, the sources suggests that in the short term the militant’s methods had great, positive significance.
The United States of American has risen from an optimistic idea by our Founding Fathers and evolved into the great nation that it is today. It would be difficult to describe only one aspect of what makes America great, as there are many values and ideas which have not only shaped our nation, but inspired individuals at home and all around the world. The “American Dream” is a way of life, based on the idea that if you work hard you will be successful. This idea has endured for well over a century, and people have come to America from all over the world for opportunity and a better way of life. I know this firsthand and have felt the inspirational power of this belief, because my own Father came to the United States with very little money, but an incorrigible desire to work hard and succeed.
Generally, Eleanor Roosevelt ignored the frequent criticism to help achieve her goals or those Administration objectives with which she concurred. Unlike her three immediate predecessors (Florence Harding, Grace Coolidge, Lou Hoover), Eleanor Roosevelt did not enter into the role of First Lady with specific plans to continue previous support for a constituency (Harding and animal rights and WWI veterans, Coolidge and the hearing-impaired, Hoover and the Girl Scouts). All she knew for certain was that she would be active in word and deed, especially in light of the devastation the Great Depression was continuing to have on the lives of millions of Americans.. Her extraordinary history of experience and work in progressive advocacy policy, the media, education, and women’s issues, however, greatly informed her as she found her direction, established
Each of these treaties protected and promoted the rights of women in areas in which the Commission considered such rights to be particularly vulnerable. But it was believed that, except in those areas, women's rights were best protected and promoted by the general human rights treaties (www.un.org). This was a great day for the United Nations for the women they had finally got it out their that women's right and issues are a big deal and that the world needs to take notice. In the article I read about the UN taking notice is said in the article “EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT THE CLAIM THAT THE UN NOW TAKES SERIOUSLY women’s issues, gender equality, and the representation of women in all areas of society, including the UN and its leadership, appears to be rich and varied. In his annual report on the workings of the United Nations, Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has repeatedly raised the issue of women, women’s equality, and the prevention of violence against women and girls, In 2009 the Convention on the
Instead, it was a celebration of the importance of women and their work inside the home, as mothers. Activists, like Miss Jarvis, stepped outside the typical home sphere of the time, but neither rejected the role of homemaker, nor discredited it. Instead, their very involvement as activists brought the role of mothers and homemakers into the public view --- giving it positive publicity, recognition, and public respect. Anna Jarvis, along with her mother of course, is a hero because of her determination, perseverance and resilience towards her causes and beliefs. She is also a hero because of her devotion, love, and loyalty as daughter as well as her dedication a sibling, having spent much of her last years caring for her invalid sister.
My mother never realized that female beauty could be so concentrated in exacted guidelines and standardized measurements as it is here in America. It is most puzzling how American women can subject themselves to such a biased standard of configuration. In my country of origin, Suriname, women are valued for their individuality and natural charm and beauty. We don't have a standard look of "fashion beauty" nor do we feel obligated or condemned to a life of copying what we see in magazines. Although we do have fads, as all countries do, our maturity lends to individual styles which are socially acceptable and respected.

The existing franchise laws excluded soldiers from voting due to their lack of a long term residence. And due to the courage shown by the men during the war politicians knew this would have to change and if they changed the law they must include women as they worked very hard in the war to. Politicians knew that women worked very hard during the war and they grew in admiration for them this helped decision to grant women the vote as ultimately it was the MPs who could actually change the law. The resignation of Prime Minister Asquith also helped as the new PM, Lloyd George, was in favour of given the women the franchise. Under Lloyd George the coalition government removed the divisions among parties and encouraged co-operation which made MPs feel that if they did vote yes not all women would vote for the same party through gratitude and so many agreed to vote yes for women’s
