The main concept of this role of women was that their purpose was to educate their sons properly and to make sure that when they grew up, they would be functional and hopefully upstanding members of society. This was a major development, as it made sure women knew their place in the world; they were to serve the men of the world, and were not to get directly involved in any of a “man’s decisions.” This thought was also shared by Benjamin Rush, who stated that women should be educated just enough so that they could teach their sons about the principles of liberty and government (DOC B). While this did proved women with some educational opportunities, said opportunities were very limited, and their small amount of education could never land them a good job or allow them to be “free”, as Margaret Fuller wrote in “Woman in the Nineteenth Century” (DOC E). The Cult of Domesticity was probably the most dominant and most binding “institution” that developed in this era. It was based around four principal ideas: piety, purity, domesticity, and submissiveness.
The movement helped bring about major changes in the lives for women as a whole, and also in everyday life of others in the United States. Before the women begin to act out about the treatment they received for society, their expected roles was to sit home, bear children, clean the house, clean the clothes and cook. Tired, stressed and frustrated women had many demands that the societal expectations of them change, from being servile house-bound creatures expected to save themselves for one man in marriage, after and during this movement women were able to get professional and blue-collar jobs that were available only for men. Women were treated as though they were second class citizens and not as an equal to man. It put the demands for women’s equality, religion, sports, marriage and child bearing on a higher scale.
Obama explained how he wanted to make sure that young women are going to be able to compete in the market place. Meanwhile, Romney wants not only men but women to be qualified for his cabinet. This shows how Obama and Romney want to make an impact in women’s lives by giving them more opportunities and help them out. Obama and Romney also shared life experiences during the debate by using Pathos. For example, Obama mentioned how he was race by a single mom and how her grandmother trained people who would end up becoming her
Outline some of the factors within the education system that may have contributed to improvements in girl’s achievements. Within the education system many factors have contributed to improvement in girl’s attainment, such as the impact of feminism, changing girl’s ambitions, the equal opportunities policy and more. Some sociologists argue that changes in the way pupils are assessed have favoured girls. For example, Steven gorard found the gender gap in attainment was narrow until GCSE’s were introduced, after which it increased sharply. It brought coursework as a major part of most subjects with it.
Women started working traditional male jobs yes because it helped with the war effort but women had something to prove. Men thought that the way they did because it was how they grew up. However women were well on their way to changing that thought. Women were giving it their all in helping with the war
Before World War I, women had few rights. But their experience in the Great War changed that forever. Their views towards life changed or improved, and by the middle of the 19th century, women were demanding equality with men. They wanted the right to vote in elections and an equal chance to work and get educated. They also wanted the right to have their own possessions, to divorce their husbands, and to keep their children after divorce.
They include the work of the suffragettes’ who caused chaos and grabbed the spotlight away from the suffragists’ after a group of women decided it was time to make a militant stand. Also woman’s work war work was a massive contribution to them gaining the vote, it showed that woman could work just as well as the men could and respect was gained. Women worked on the front line as bearers for the injured soldiers, this showed tremendous bravery and strength they also worked in the medical areas helping men recover or heal from their injuries. Finally the changing attitudes of the government and society helped women with their stand, the women’s persistence was important, they showed heart and character in continuing to maintain their support, time and effort to gain
In my point of view from all the research I have done women tend to have more interest in political events and are interested in what is happening around them and how it is going to affect them and their families. Another example of a woman role model in politics is Ms. Sonia Sotomayor. She was in a poor position since a young age but as she expressed her feelings and continued to have excellent grades she progressed; after all the hard work she has put into her education she is now the 1st Hispanic women and 3rd in line female to become an associate justice in the supreme
The role of women before, after, and during World War II was very diverse to say the least but women's lives changed in many ways during World War II. Many women found their roles and opportunities and responsibilities expanded, as they did in previous wars. Husbands went to war or went to work in factories in other parts of the country, and the wives had to pick up their husbands' responsibilities. With fewer men in the workforce, women filled more traditionally-male jobs. In the military, women were banned from combat duty, so women were called on to fill some jobs that men had performed, to free men for combat duty.
However, some women joined the work force and would do jobs that men previously had held. Some were not forced to, but they had to work as hard as they could to support their families during this difficult time. In contrast, the writer Norman Cousins commented that there was a negative opinion on the women’s presence in the workforce despite women willing to acquire a living wage. He also stated in his book that the federal government proscribed holding government jobs by both members of a married couple, and many localities stopped hiring women whose husbands with a minimum wage (Cousins 1939). Another aspect of the Depression affecting life of women was the moral argument against working-women.
