Throughout history there are individuals, both male and female, that debate the capabilities of women in both education and in the workforce. Moreover, a woman’s ‘proper place’ is also debated. Should a woman concentrate on being a good wife and/or mother, or does she have the right and ability to choose another path for herself? This essay will examine the overarching theme of a woman’s sphere through the lenses of the four themes that Solomon (1985) introduced in her narrative. This examination will illustrate that the boundaries of a women’s sphere was expanded and broadened through the progression of women’s education in America.
The Phenomenology of the American Woman: Past and Present Howard L. Bethany Liberty University HSER 509, B05 Multicultural Issues in Human Services July 10, 2011 Abstract The purpose of this paper is to explore and to educate others on how sex and the female gender role have perpetrated oppression on the American woman.

HISTORY AND THEORY OF FEMINISM The term feminism can be used to describe a political, cultural or economic movement aimed at establishing equal rights and legal protection for women.

According to Maggie Humm and Rebecca Walker, the history of feminism can be divided into three waves. The first feminist wave was in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, the second was in the 1960s and 1970s, and the third extends from the 1990s to the present.

One of the main points that Wollstonecraft touches upon in A Vindication of the Rights of Women is the issue regarding women and education. I believe this to be one of Wollstonecraft’s strongest points in the book. According to Wollstonecraft, individual education is extremely important and women should be allowed to pursue an education equal to that of men. This statement is extremely important because during the 18th century, many people believed that women were incapable of rational thought. 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."
First demands for equality were put forward by women during the War of Independence in the United States. Abigail Smith Adams was considered to be the first American woman, fighting for women’s significance in society. She is very famous thanks to her phrase (1776): «We are not going to obey the laws in the adoption of which we did not participate, and the government that does not represent our interests» («Feminism», n.d.). Feminists and historians identified three stages in the development of the women’s movement. Second half of 19th century is the period when organized women’s feministmovement started.
