Seneca Falls Convention By Nicole borm If you’re a teacher, student, a physicist, a stay at home mom, or a sales clerk we have a lot of people to thank for their hard work to make us who we are today. Back in the 1800’s women didn’t have rights and were often considered being property till they were old enough to marry. If these women didn’t put the effort to change the way we live today where would we be? Would we still be property? We would not have x-rays; find radiation in soil, the baby carrier, Animal Handling systems, windshield Wipers, Barbie dolls, and new medicine.

Even though Mary had the option of not working, she still worked because she liked her work at the Pencil Factory.

“Evaluate the view that gender inequalities are the result of a patriarchal society” It is a gaping paradox that in a society where we seem to have reached a higher respect for women than ever before, what with improved laws protecting them both at home and in the workplace and notable demographic changes (increase in divorce and illegitimate births for example), that their economic status continually declines. This was the basis of Diane Pearce’s theory in 1978, “the feminisation of poverty” and now more than ever, it holds incredulous relevance. Why has their increased independence resulted in their pauperisation and dependence on welfare? Many feminists, including Diane Pearce, would point their finger at one cause: patriarchy. Marxist theories state that inequality is not a female issue, but a class one, for they note that middle class women are often better off than working class men.

As happy as she was when he won the prize, she gave it all to charity. When Jane Addams was younger she had to overcome the death of her mother and three siblings that died at birth. She was described as a “sickly child”, with a curved spinal cord, and when her father died she went into depression, because she had a very close bond with him. Some of her book are, The Excellent Becomes the Permanent written in1932, The Long Road of Woman's Memory written in 1916, Newer Ideals of Peace written in 1907, Peace and Bread in Time of War written in 1922, The Second Twenty Years at Hull-House: September 1909 to September 1929 written in 1930. In 1926 Addams suffered a heart attack and never fully got her health back.

The society developed the original "First Aid Kits" used in homes, schools and businesses; it also distributed information and supervised first aid classes.

In 1905, she published A Story of the Red Cross, and, two years later, The Story of My Childhood. Her health began to slowly decline and she was saddened by the loss of many friends.
