These movements started to challenge the thinking of the society about the role and the lives of women in society. In a gradual process, the women's movements made the society starting viewing women as equals. Women also began to have increased freedoms in choosing their own husbands (Helgren & Collen, 2010). The wide availability of contraception also allowed women the right to decide on the extent of the family. Marriage started to be viewed as a union of two equal people seeking love, happiness and stability in the 19th century.
Women During the 1920’s Sheena Mang HIS 204 Darrell Rice August 19, 2011 Women During the 1920’s Most women today in our country have the same rights as any man, at the same time there are other countries where women are still being treated differently because of their gender. Thankfully this country is not like that, anymore. There once was a time where women where treated differently, just because they where women. With time and a lot of hard work of some dedicated women, things did change. While women once had few life options beyond isolation in the domestic sphere, some historical developments presented new opportunities for women in society such as their duties, education, work, voice and even dress.
This very much complicated the assumption that women should marry. A series of female educational pioneers had also emerged and their efforts formed part of a much wider movement of campaigners who sought to bring women equal rights to study, work, own property and vote. This resulted in a great number of changes in the lives of women2. Women had started to gain a voice in politics. This was a big change as, before this period, women hadn’t been able to put forth ideas to even challenge legislation let alone contribute to the making of new laws.
Assess the contribution of feminist theorists and researchers to an understanding of society today Feminism comes in different forms such as liberal feminists, radical feminist, Marxist feminists, black feminists, dual-systems feminism, difference feminism and poststructuralism. Feminist theorists such as Sue Sharpe, Becky Francis, Judith Butler and so forth have contributed to giving us an understanding of society today. Gender inequality has become more aware in today’s society and has majorly changed over recent years such as girls overtaking boys at school and men and women still do not occupy equal positions in society. Without feminism people of society today wouldn’t have realised girl’s ambitions changing and how girls got treated differently and this wouldn’t have changed if feminists took a note and researched this further. So this has contributed to how we see society today, people notice girls doing better in school and genuinely how people see education.
Role of women until 1500 “Women Past Lived” Erin Snider World Civilization I Martha Stillman September 21, 2009 Women Past Lived Page 2 Women today have status and rights because of the women of yesterday’s many societies breaking through obstacles of extreme measures. Even though culture around the world differed in religion, dress, language and a few daily rituals there were many similarities that connected the way of life. The role of women in every society through early times including Roman, Medieval, India and China mostly ruled there women as inferior to their men and were unable to have many rights. Women were usually uneducated; unable to vote some of the case they hardly left their homes. The
Jennifer runs a tight ship and work, and she is organized enough to prepare lists, so the work is done right. I believe it takes a strong woman with a good self-concept to be an administrative assistant, and take care of an entire family, but I also believe stress is taking a toll on Jennifer’s body and her mind. I find it hard commuting back and forth to work, so I understand Jennifer has severe frustrations. Maybe Jennifer believes she has to do everything for everyone for people to love her, because everyone probably can’t believe how much she can do in one day. They might even call her “Superwoman”, but that is just a television show, and not reality.
During this time, women had to take up many responsibilities, in replace of the men who were fighting in war. For example, women had to earn money for the family, which left them no choice but to get a job. With men being gone and nobody to control their lives, women took advantage of their new-found freedom. Fashion became a large influence on women in the 1920’s. This allowed women to become independent and free from the society.
Over the years women have fought long and hard to be able to obtain and maintain legal rights and privileges that the male gender is born into. Females were molded and primed to play the part as an obedient wife and mother with instruction that your thoughts and opinions are kept to yourself. The perseverance of brave women helped today’s generation of women such as myself have the same equal rights as that of men. With all things you must have a burning passion in the pit of your belly to want to advance and defeat the injustice of this world. In order to put laws into effect there must be a group of people who all agree that new laws should be implemented because of majority vote.
