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.
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.

They thought it was unnecessary, and women should have their own place in the home
Unfortunately, many minorities continue to struggle in their efforts to find equal employment and educational opportunities, key parts of the American dream. Discrimination continues to affect minorities, and many view this as morally unacceptable. In Can We All Get Along? Racial and Ethnic Minorities in American Politics, Paula McClain and Joseph Stewart Jr., discuss the controversial nature of racial politics in African American, American Indian, Asian American, and Latino communities. Racial and ethnic issues have been the heart of America from the beginning and they still remain central to the American political systems as we begin the twenty-first century (McClain and Stewart, 186).
From racial profiling to other issues such as affirmative action, police brutality against minorities and the history of slavery and the rising resentment against immigrants.” (Anup Shah 1998) I think this really does suit racism in the United States. Yes it has come a long way from what it used to be like but we still have problems just like this all over the world. Way back in the day American people didn’t have much racism towards them but Americans were very racist towards everyone who was not American. They had all sorts of racial groups such as the Ku Klux Klan, save our state, and gay groups. These groups of hate have died down over the years but there are still a few out
Women went back to working at home and jobs were taken over by men again. They say that World War One did very little to change the position of women in Britain. The truth is that World War One did change the lives of women but the extent was limited and their role in society was never the same as it had been before 1914. It is important to remember that if it wasn’t for their protest and demonstration before, women’s rights wouldn’t have been on the agenda of the government and change would have taken much longer. With so many young men enlisted in the army, the role women played was crucial, not only to the war
In the Greek period, women were not aloud to have any of their own properties; such as land or houses. If a woman wanted to have something of her own during that period she was cast out and more then likely stoned to death. In todays society however, a woman who owns her own house or car is respected for being independent and being able to support herself. Today, women are looked up on as the “brats” that always get their way. Some people even go as far to try to prove that women get better treatment in some cases because of the sexual status.
To conclude, black people all over the world, wherever they live were for a long time victim of racism for their skin color. People treated them badly only because they had a darker skin color, forgetting that that we are all humans and the color of our skins an where we come from doesn’t indicate our personalities and beliefs. Black in America suffered a lot for reason of racism and went through the hard ships and difficulties
Women, under the reign of male power, were not considered persons and weren’t allowed or guaranteed any rights, rights which are basic human rights. Women of these times were unable to vote and unable to sit in parliament or acquire certain jobs that were only made available to the men of society. A woman with a seat in the parliament was unheard of at this time, but it was all because of Murphy’s efforts that this was ultimately made possible. Under the BNA act of 1867, “Persons” refers to more than one person, while “Person” refers to “He”. A common law was passed in 1867 stating, “Women are persons in matters of pains and penalties, but are not persons in matters of rights and privileges.” This law solidifies the ideal that women are disregarded when it comes to basic rights and priviledges in society.
Arab Muslim Civilization Stereotypes This world is filled with a variety of cultures, beliefs, and religions; everyone has differing views on the morality of life. Unfortunately people often do not respect and embrace the differences they have with others. This lack of acceptance has led to discrimination, stereotyping, and even war. After many incidents that affected the world; Arabs started being criticized by many people. People around the world are and have been for many years stereotyping 1/5 of the world’s population.
In comparison, America has been stratified through history through the acts of feminism. Decades ago women were not allowed to work, eat, or even leave the home. All men were given power to control the family’s needs. In today’s stratified society women still seem to have less power than men. The male’s perspective and contributions are considered more valuable, resulting in the silencing and marginalization of the woman.
