Much choice for women emerged in the effects of this, and now, a “Happy Mother” was now what a woman wanted it to be (Doc G). Factories were set up and used, places of work mostly employed by women. This shows the changing views towards women and their role in American life. These workers were even advertised due to fact they were women! Women were now wage earners, something unthinkable years ago.
You saw women entering factories and other places like ship yards (Doc E/G). But with women’s ability to enter the workforce, also came the limitations and discrimination that came with being a woman in fields that were once thought to be males only. Because of the nature of women and the way they had always been thought of, their position in politics, economics, and the workforce was
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.
Today, women have the right to vote, a fair shot at education, and the workforce. It is the law that employers must be an Equal Opportunity Employer, but in some cases women are often discriminates against. Most employers would say that they hire individuals without bias, but that is not always true. There are still people stuck in the past and set in the ways of women should take care of their husbands, children, and households. But we have come a long way.
The Nineteenth Amendment In past history, women have had little rights and even in today’s world women continue to be downgraded and underestimated. Women have put up a fight and it has been a complete struggle for us to gain even the slightest bit of respect. Although there have been many factors that contributed to women’s rights, the nineteenth amendment has to be one of the primary factors; impacting not only the lives of women, but changing history. The Nineteenth Amendment grants all American women the permission to vote. But was this process easy or was it a struggle?
As the world slowly changed with time, so did the ideals and obligations of the people. A group that projected the most was the American women throughout the early development of America. Although they continue to earn more respect, rights, and opportunities up to today’s time, the most striking period for restyling the woman’s lifestyle would be the build up to the Civil War. Living in a democratic society, many people felt a pull towards the freedom it had to offer-including women. As American began to industrialize, so did women.
This is happening not only here but around the entire world. Women deserve better, especially when they are held up to such high expectations. How can a women cook, clean, raise children, work, satisfy their husband, and everything else, when they are being beaten and raped to nearly death? Women have come a long way in America and all over the world. They have gained their rights and many of the respect that they deserve.
SIMILIARITIES AND DIFFERENCES World war ll was a great moment in history for women to step up to the plate and get the credit they deserve. Because the women replaced the men’s jobs who were off fighting for our country, they really made a huge impact to meet the wartime needs. Women made it possible. After World War two however, some things changed for the good and the bad. There are many differences and similarities of their roles during the war and after, this also includes the short-term and long-term effects on women forever.
Change for Women LeAnna Crenshaw HIS/135 August 10, 2014 Ellen Rendle Change for Women Freedom and rights have always been a challenge for women in this country. Where it may appear as though women and men were created equally, that thought could not be farther from the truth. In the past, women have had to fight. They have had to fight for the right to vote. They have had to fight for the right to gain employment.
Women take more advantage of voting through the ages than men do, possibly because women had to fight so hard for that simple right. People like to believe that feminism has no real reason to expand or exist after the first wave. That is not true. In fact, women are still fighting for basic rights, such as birth control, today. Feminism is still strongly needed in today’s culture.
