Women during this time were only allowed to go so far and do so much without being restrained it seemed like. She doubts herself in letters she sends to her female friends who sympathize with her problems in choosing her partner for marriage. As a result to her resent of her thoughts about female powerlessness, and her outspoken thoughts of marriage. Virtue also resulted in achievement of morality, which was identified with marriage. Also Eliza resisted the sexual double-standard which I found really amazing.
Perhaps the women felt envy for the other women, knowing that they were married and had a man in their lives, while the accusers were alone and had no one? This seems to be something that historians should definitely look into, since jealousy can very well be more credible than other things they look
When she then returned in the 90s she found that the list had flipped, with jobs and careers being in first place. This shows how attitudes have changed in a short time, making singlehood more popular. Another reason for the growth in singlehood could be the influence feminism has. More women are choosing to live alone, due to having the capacity to do so, as they don’t need the financial stability marriage once gave them. Feminism has
She wanted to live a more lavish lifestyle, but later she will find that the life she has is much better than the life that she will obtain later in life. Although Mathilde Loisel didn’t have a harsh life, she suffered greatly. She longed to live the life in which she thought she deserved because of her beauty. She lived in an apartment with her husband that was plain and not very desirable to live in, well in her standards. She will daydream about the life she should have had and not want she has.
In today’s society women are always worrying about their appearance. Their perspectives on how they should present themselves are imposed by everything around them. Friends, celebrities and the media are the main reasons why women fee the need to live their lifestyle a specific way. Sometimes, celebrities don’t even need to say anything to have an effect on one; women in today’s society are already provoked on changing just by feeling intimidated by them. In Nina Power’s text, ‘One- Dimensional Woman’ the author also argues that you don’t need superficial things to feel good about yourself, or to even look like perfectly thin stick figure to be a feminist.
Unfortunately the recent report tells us that only by 2095 we can achieve the full gender equality on the workplace. However, of course, we could try and shorten that time. It is obviously important to have not only males in the business world, because this way we miss out on many opportunities that women could bring to the world, due to the different perception of values. When for example men are driven by mostly material success, women tend to build up relationships and friendly environment on the workplace. However, sometimes emotions and nurturing can affect the business in a negative manner.
After this law there was an increase in lone parent families, cohabiting and even same sex couples, this was because it started to be more socially acceptable and married couples didn’t have to be forced into a relationship if they weren’t happy. However, The New Right did not like the idea of having lone parent families, they said that lone parents (mostly mothers) cannot discipline their children properly and are a burden on the welfare state as they need to claim benefits due to the fact that they are not working so they can’t support their children. Conservatives see marriage as the essential basis for creating a stable environment for bringing up children, so I don’t think that they are very happy with the fact that family diversity is such a big deal in our society nowadays as they have a very traditional view. Similarly to The New Right’s view, Chester in 1985 claimed that people aspire to be in a nuclear family because that is the way that most people in the UK have been brought up, he also claimed that most people live in a household headed by a married couple and will most likely be the head of a nuclear family in the future. He believes that the nuclear family is the ideal type of family where the husband is the breadwinner and the wife is the housewife
Such as women can not perform manual work as well as men, on the other hand, a man’s entire chemistry is different allowing him to be less emotional than a woman. Jane Addams and her colleague Ellen Gates Starr founded Hull House a place for down and out women. Jane treated these women as friends and ignoring their faults, became very close to these women. Being close to these women allowed Jane to understand their struggle but much of the information she gathered remained unpublished. She saw social differentiation as a block that society needed to get over, infuriately she herself was a victim.
Even though some women don't have everything they want, they do have the same basic rights that men have. In Stanton's time, a married couple was seen as one person, but now a married woman can still be seen as an individual. They can vote, have a job, and be independent – things that a woman in Stanton's time could never have done. They can also act out more behavioral wise. They do not have to stay in the house all day with the children and obey their husbands.
And they have been criticised for over-focusing on her personal life at the expense of the substance of her policies.  We all know that she is unmarried, but have a partner; she is not religious and doesn’t want to have kids. I also think that the media for sometime too it too far when they focused on her background, such as the history of her partner instead of her policies. Anyway, in her biography titled “The Making of Julia Gillard”, Jacquelline Kent portrays her as a hard worker with plenty of intellectual energy and a willingness to tackle big challenges. Jacquelline portrays Julia as a decent human being who is brave in the face of the ups and downs of political life.
