Women learned the ways of men (doing business and taking care of finances) while the men were away at war. Because of this they desired more equal marriages and wanted a say in decisions. They also wanted to marry for love instead of economics. Men finally began teaching women in schools which eventually led to women teaching other women.

IAH 201: U.S. & The World (D) The Women’s Rights Movement Starting In the early 1800s women began to question their general role in society and how it is unjust and unfair. Interestingly the educated radicals and working class women in early 1800s were still concerned with the roles and rights of women, they did not classify suffrage as being the prominent issue. The idea of women’s suffrage did not become the primary goal of the Women’s rights movement until around the 1850s, and then remained the primary goal up until 1920 when women finally achieved the right to vote. Further, there were many significant male and female figuresthat played crucial roles in the Women’s rights movements that eventually led to, but didn’t stop at, the achievement of women’s right to vote in 1920. It was in the early 1800s when women began to question various issues such as their roles in society and their rights as a woman, or their lack of rights and unjust inequality in comparison to males.
In A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennessee Williams, women as a social group are represented through two main female characters: Blanche and Stella (Williams, Tennessee). The play is set in postwar America, during which women had restricted freedom and were given a largely domestic role in society (A&E Television Networks, LLC.) Many women, however, who had played a more active role in society during the war found it difficult to adjust back to their lives after the war ended . Williams uses Blanche and Stella to convey society’s ideas about the role of women at the time, focusing on women’s domestic role, their passivity and what was presumed as ‘femininity’. Stella exemplifies the perceived domestic role of women during that period, staying at home while Stanley goes to work.

The historical debate surrounding this topic is wether women’s lives really did change greatly after the two world wars, or wether their lives simply went back to the way they were before the war started. This essay will discuss women’s participation during the two world wars, the gaining of the vote, women in the workplace after the wars, their role in society and how it changed and eventually, coming to the conclusion that women’s lives did not change to a great extent, and that it was all a result of changing times in society. Women’s participation during the two world wars was greatly appreciated. The great war came to be seen as a great opportunity for women, however, when war first broke out, the war was seen a threat to women’s position1. There was a massive disruption of the industries in which women were mostly employed, such as dress-making and textiles.
Utopia is a book describing how leaders should go about making their country a perfect one. In contrast to other writers, More believed that a perfect country should incorporate equal opportunities for both sexes. He also believed that to be successful, all members of the society need to be productive, the men as well as the women. More's Utopia makes up a world where women are given more privileges and authority, and are respected more than in any existence at that time. Nevertheless, it seems that he could not escape the dominant philosophy of his own society that women were the weaker sex.
Wollstonecraft states that education for women "will slowly sharpen the senses, form the temper, regulate the passions as they begin to ferment, and set the understanding to work before the body arrives at maturity; so that the man may only have to proceed, not to begin, the important task of learning to think and reason." Education is most important for women because it will help them obtain habits of morality that will cause the individual to be independent. Wollstonecraft views education as a system that needs to be improved nationally for both boys and girls. Her plan to reform education states that both boys and girls will attend the same school until age 9 where they will all dress the same, be treated the same and participate in the same field of study.
Has society and culture hindered women’s abilities to lead, and are women still constantly judged against? There are multiple ways to answer this question. Argument against: From the beginning it has been made clear to humans that men should be the protective, strong, working ones, while women should care for the family and take care of household duties. Over thousands of years of an ever-changing world, the role has gradually shifted and shifted. When women were granted the right to vote in the early 1900’s, a women’s right streak took over, and from then on, it only got better for women.
