Another assumption is that women often took jobs for the wrong reasons (Gunn and Gullickson, 2007). That statement suggests that Karen’s gender may have been the reason she did not recognize her motivator instead of the fact that she may have just never thought about it. If a person obtains a job that will not gratify their main motivator then that person will be unsatisfied with their job. By making this assumption the article also implies that most women are not satisfied at work .Even though assumptions are drawn from this article, there are a few hypotheses made by the Pursuit of Unhappiness.

Melinda Wenner from Scientific American Mind and Benedict Carey from the New York Times both report on this study and use it to prove that birth order indeed effects IQ and therefore effects your personality. The study concluded that the eldest children tend to have IQ’s that are higher than their siblings- an average of three points higher (Carey). It also found that the difference was not because of biological factors, or genes that were inherited, but instead were the result of sociological interplay of parents and other siblings. Both articles defend the findings by explaining that eldest children teach, or tutor their younger siblings naturally. This, in turn, helps the information solidify in their minds creating room for expansion of deeper more abstract
Functionalists like Fletcher believed that divorce was rising because people were raising their expectations in marriage, this suggests that higher divorce rates means higher value of marriage. Women petition for 70% of divorces this shows that the women may be increasingly likely to feel dissatisfied with marriage. The unequal distribution of tasks may be a key factor for example Delphy and Leonard suggest that the woman already performed 57 unpaid roles for their partner.

Couples also had fewer children which again may mean that there is less to keep them together leading to an increase in

The issue of women and the rights that they had slowly began to develop years after America gained its independence from Britain in 1776. During this time period, women were not as important as the men because they were considered to be inferior. Therefore, women had less power than men, their rights were limited, and their opinions were most of the time disregarded. However, many years passed by and the country and its people began to grow, people started realizing how important it was for women to be treated as equal as men. The inventions of the Industrial Revolution and the movements that followed changed the lives and status of Northern middle-class women in the time period of 1776-1876.
Sharpe’s research suggests that younger girls are now becoming more confident in terms of their rights and their priorities have changed from being a housewife and mother, to getting a good education, a degree and being able to support themselves financially. She also found out that there are signs that women are more likely to divorce husbands who are insistent on their wives playing an inferior domestic role. Helen Wilkinson (1994) argues that there has been an essential alter in terms of attitudes and values among women below the age of 35. Due to the drastic changes, she argues this should be known as ‘genderquake’ and claims this has led to an intense transformation in the distribution of power between male and female.

Harvard professor, Emma Lapsansky-Wener, stated that the right for women to vote would give citizens a stronger faith in the government, that only then they will be ensured protection throughout their lives.

Media has evolved and over the years so has the way a woman has been judged as beautiful. Before media I would assume that women would only have the women in their surrounding communities to be compared to, much less competition than today’s world where women are judged based on a much larger variety of women. Women striving to be more beautiful than another has always been a trend. There are documented trends of ways women would use milk baths and clay and certain things they would do to their skin just to look “beautiful”. (clin2006) Women are known for doing unpleasant things to make their body look more appealable.
