However they face the challenge and constant pressure to perform in all areas of their life whilst balancing domestic and corporate lives. This gives rise to the issue of being drained and burned out. Although women in the developed world have been blessed with more equal opportunities after generations of unfair inferiority, the pressure put on a society's women to be perfect at whatever they are expected to do is huge. Even with the enormous developments that have been made over decades, women must still constantly fight for the right to create their own identities, no matter where they're from or what they believe in.

She does not have the perfect size two body, yet she is perfectly comfortable in her own skin, just like many women should be. I believe Clifton is trying to say that women need more opportunity to grown, that they do not belong in petty little places. By saying that her hips are free she is saying that she is free, that nobody can tell her what to do. She is also speaking to women telling them they need to be free, and self-grow. Clifton is a very self dependant woman.
As Sandberg and Chavez write in their article there is deep-rooted stereotypes- we expect boys to be confident and leaders, but if a girl acts like that, we do not like this. All these expectations and stereotypes make life harder for women. In addition, women still need to fight for equality. In today society is harder for women to
Mrs. Linde was then able to attain her personal desires, to work and care for others, without worrying about any family obligations. Mrs. Linde has been through a lot in her life, which has made her a tough woman with a rough facade. When she explains why she married without love, she says to Nora, “My mother was alive then, and was helpless, and I had to provide for my two younger brothers; so I did not think I was justified in refusing his offer” (809). Mrs. Linde also tells Krogstad, "I have learned to act prudently. Life, and hard, bitter necessity have taught me that" (841).

Stanton wants to show that yes, woman do reproduce and are willing to be a mother to any child they bring into the world, but until then, women are just as capable to work and earn a living as men. She is out to prove that there are indeed jobs out there that are suited for women and cater to there own skills as well as experiences. The “Declaration of Sentiments” is not retaliation to the “Declaration
Bella galvanized and helped transform the United Nations agenda regarding woman and their concerns for human’s rights, economic justice, population, development and the environment. B. Bella Azbug was an inspiring person who taught everyone not to give up. III. A little bit about Bella Azbug. A.
She took the place of her mother and took over the responsibility of caring for the children (Morton, 35). Because Madonna was so used to taking care of herself and others from an early age, she became independent in life. She became accustomed to having to work for what she wanted. Also, she didn’t have a true mother figure, and this led her to strive for femininity in her life.

1. How did Wellesley College, its faculty and the community reflect the cultural/societal views of women and gender roles at the time? In the film, Wellesley College, it's faculty, students, and community demonstrate what life was like for young women during this time period. Although the students of this school were incredibly intelligent, they did not expect to do anything with their lives besides get married and start a family.
