Finally the men didn’t think much of women for doing things that they could. Most men married women for their inheritance, childbirth, appearance, housekeeping and were expected to be married by their families. I think the suffragists campaigns were important but not as important as what happened during WW1. Source one shows Joyce’s opinion so it’s not a solid fact so it might not be reliable as she could be bias to the suffragists. But I believe that the suffragists did help women win the vote by showing they can do it in a calm and peaceful way.
Polygamy carried on into the time of Muhammad, and throughout the 7th to 9th century. A change in this practice occurred when Muhammad restricted men to only four wives. Some believed that woman had the right to make their husbands loyal to only one woman, but that was very rare. Along with polygamy, divorce was legal as well, but that right was strictly given to only the husband. Power tended to lean more to the husband than the wife, since men could work professional jobs, along with taking care of the family.
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.
Woman in special were in of great need to be given rights as they were classified as almost nothing in society. At the time there was a lot that woman could not do due to the poor laws, while legally and morally a man could get away with doing so much more. Woman couldn’t open any bank accounts and once married the husband would had complete control over any financial incomes that they earned. Also woman were expected to have sex with only one man while it was acceptable for men to have multiple partners in their life. In a way this moral and legal discrimination is equally a big issue in the 21st century.
The Invisible Cage Pride and Prejudice In the nineteenth century society, the options of choosing husbands for unmarried women are limited due to the reason that the society has prescribed a set of values for them. The English society associated the entrance of a woman into the public with a reprehensible loss of femininity. Jane Austen, the author of the novel Pride and Prejudice herself suffers in this era by not allowed to be acknowledged as the author for her books. In Jane Austen's book Pride and Prejudice, she depicts how young men and women behave in the society and how they set up their life and social position for their own desires. With this background, Jane tries to deliver the message that the people were restrained and they suffered by the rules set by the society such as family reputation, women’s position, and class division.
This segregation between men and women is still a major problem in United States because working moms do not receive extra institutions, women are treated lower when they have received same amount of education as men, and women received less income than men. Long after the 19th Amendment to the Constitution gave women the right to vote in 1920, women were prevented from fulfilling professional ambitions by a set of assumptions about their "proper" role in society, which was largely defined as being mothers and taking care of the household. (Lee, Wagner) There still aren’t many changes on what people think the role of a woman is. Gender segregation in modern society is a problem because in this day in age, both men and women need to work to support their family. Working mothers are now a common part of society that reflects both economic necessity and new-found freedom for women to go beyond their traditional role in society.
African Americans were segregated from the whites and also Women had no rights because Men were seen as the alpha male. The obstacles of the two would probably fit into the race and gender of how America was back in the twentieth century. African Americans were always hard to be put in society in the 1900’s because of slavery. Even though slavery had ended in the 1950’s, they were still not accepted into society. The northern parts of the United States accepted African Americans, and many try to escape to the north to try to get employed and leave the racial segregation in the south.
