Susan B. Anthony was another great inspiration to the women society. She was an American Civil Rights leader who came up with what is now called the 19th amendment. Susan stated, “There was no difference between the minds of men and women.” She wanted to open doors to not only women but to people who were enslaved. Susan B. Anthony also made employers hire women, showing that women could work just as well as men could. She proved that women deserved the same amount of pay that men were making.
Reality would support the opposite, that it is in fact the traits that support the individual. For once chauvinism may actually have worked in favor of women. By forcing women into the supporting roles, society likely gave them exactly what they needed to become successful in ways men cannot. "Women took on the roles of parent, housekeeper, teacher, mediator, bookkeeper, police, plumber, chef, etc. (Women and Work Human Resources comments all while still maintaining the illusion of grace, style and gentility.
The National Organization of Women is devoted to women getting equal rights. As stated in the excerpt, “women can achieve such equality only by accepting to the full the challenges and responsibilities they share with all other people in our society, as part of the decision-making mainstream of America political, economic and social life” (113). Changes that take place in our everyday lives make it possible and necessary to give women the equality that they deserve. Women should not have to
The source states that ‘God has put a different between the sexes’ suggesting that there is a biological basis as to why it was logical that women were to perform lesser and simpler tasks than men such as child rearing and cleaning. In this sense, women should be bound to the house, away from the busy and chaotic world of politics and business. Similarly, source 3 by John Williams states that women should ‘dismiss all ambition for anything higher’ suggesting that a woman’s sphere is below that of a man’s, further implying that as the home was women’s ‘natural domain’ they were seen to better qualified for domestic jobs. Although source 2 believes that neither men nor women are superior, it does state that women should not assert their equality to men and so suggesting that the two spheres implied that women were somewhat inferior to men. However, source 1 comes from The Christian Library and so the ideals of womanhood were heavily based on Christian faith which greatly restricted the role of women as through this faith women were seen as weak and so the source’s religious background indicates an underlying belief in women’s inferiority.
Iron Jawed Angels Essay After watching “Iron Jawed Angels” I gained a strong sense of reality when witnessing what women had to do to achieve their independence and gain a place in a male dominated society. Up until the late 19th century, women were perceived as homemakers and were allowed only domestic duties in society but with the emerging industrial/political system women could now use there domestic skills to propel their voice in American government and society. Industrialism allowed for change in society and even encouraged it. During the 19th century, change was abundant and people had to be forced to become accustomed to it for it was needed. Freedom and equality for all citizens was continuously being stressed in society and with these ideals came realization from all walks of life that everyone deserves to be heard and considered.
Her topic and argument in the test is that all women should have the same rights as men. Elizabeth also argues that since it is states that men and women are equal that women should be treated the same as men. The essay is rich with logical, emotional, and ethical appeals. Each appeal deeply exercises the importance of equality. Logos: “Whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is right of those who suffer from it to refuse allegiance to it, and to insist upon the institution of a new government” This particular appeal effectively allures to the logical thinking of the reader.
As a feminist, Ms Eastman points out; “But the true feminist, no matter how far to the left she may be in the revolutionary movement, sees the woman's battle as distinct in its objects and different in its methods from the workers' battle for industrial freedom. She knows, of course, that the vast majority of women as well as men are without property, and are of necessity bread and butter slaves under a system of society which allows the very sources of life to be privately owned by a few, and she counts herself a loyal soldier in the working-class army that is marching to overthrow that system. But as a feminist she also knows that the whole of woman's slavery is not summed up in the profit system, nor her complete emancipation assured by the downfall of capitalism.” (Eastman)
The audience probably felt confidence in continuing the struggle to assure every human being received the rights granted to them. For example, “We, in the democracies, believe in a kind of international respect and action which is reciprocal.” She also assures the people that, “ Freedom for our people is not only a right, but also a tool…they are tools with which we create a way of life, a way of life in which we can enjoy freedom.” Apparently, Roosevelt wanted her audience to think of all of the freedoms that are allowed to the democracies and the lack there of in those totalitarian states. She was effective in doing this through the use of emotive language to reinforce the firm beliefs and hopes for freedom held by France and the other nations present. In the artifact “The Struggle for Human Rights,” Roosevelt used numerous examples to add support for her main claim and central arguments. Her main claim intended to persuade the audience that universal acceptance of the Declaration of Human Rights will assure all human beings are granted, without compromise, their fundamental human rights and freedoms.
