It isn’t just who’s running for president or should we pass a law but most importantly who can vote to pass these laws. In history women have been the underdog. Often treated unfairly because they are seen as inferior In conclusion to that they have been given less rights throughout history such as the right to vote. Along with the chance to provide for their families, by having a job during the end of World War II women also finally got the right to vote. Harvard professor, Emma Lapsansky-Wener, stated that the right for women to vote would give citizens a stronger faith in the government, that only then they will be ensured protection throughout their lives.
Despite the occasional positive examples of women in roles that defy stereotype, too often they are forced to adhere to stereotypes or are even ridiculed for failing to adhere to stereotype. An example of this is the catch-22 that Hillary Clinton, the first serious female contender for the U.S. presidency, faces. She has been criticized for lacking feminine qualities; however, if she did display stereotypical feminine traits, she would be accused of lacking the strength and composure required for the job of president. Generally, we associate women with jobs such as nurses, secretaries, and maids. These kinds of jobs most people would consider as a caring and supportive jobs that are fitting to the stereotypical feminine nature.
It can be rooted in cultural traditions, fear, hatred, or superiority, with many sexists believing that their gender is superior for a variety of reasons. While many nations have laws which are designed to thwart sexism in places like the workplace, it often infiltrates society so thoroughly that these attitudes cannot be easily shaken off. Discrimination on the basis of gender can take a wide variety of forms. For example, some people believe that women should stay at home to focus on rearing children and keeping house, rather than pursuing professional careers. This attitude can lead to severe criticism when career women are involved, and as seen in the 2008 US presidential primaries, high-profile women are not exempt from sexism, even when they are running for the office of president of the United States.
Abigail Adams reminded her husband to not forget the women in the constitution which is significant because it was the beginning of women’s rights. Women also became more involved and interested in politics, to the distaste of most men. Many women followed their soldiers while at war and took care of the men. There were some women who acted in radical ways (ex. the New York City fire, riots, and letters), which hadn’t previously been so.
Source 3 questions ‘whether the country was yet prepared to accept a woman’ however, it is likely that this helped her case, as men had failed Britain for too long. Thatcher provided someone for the British housewives, who had struggled through the winter of discontent, to vote for, and a majority of her votes did indeed come from women. As said in Source 3, Thatcher saw ‘her opportunity’ and called a vote of no confidence as she anticipated his defeat and consequential loss in the following general election; Thatcher ‘knew she was going to win’ (Source 1). The unexpectedly high voter turnout probably also aided her win, even if she did only win ‘43% of the vote’, it allowed her to ‘deliver a parliamentary majority’ (Source 3). Source 1 mentions her election manifesto, which she wrote herself.
Bill Clinton got 43% of the ballot, but he did not become the president of the US immediately, he need to wait until January 1st, 1993 when each of the 270 members of the Electoral College cast their votes in the Inauguration Ceremony. On the January 1st, the Inauguration Ceremony takes place in Washington, and Bill Clinton promise to uphold the Constitution of the United State, and talking about the plan for 4 years. And now, according to the statistic of the presidents of the US, that is amazing when we know Bill Clinton is the person that have the IQ highest, and the time that he had been being the president is the peaceful time with the economy was growing up with a thousand billion dollar in the Federal
Film Review and Response to Iron Jawed Angles “Dress up prejudice and call it politics” is a profound quote in the movie Iron Jawed Angels, which depicts the struggle of women’s suffrage movement and its culmination in the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment to the Constitution. The battle for suffrage was indeed a long and difficult process spearheaded by ingenious and talented women in a variety of ways, such as spreading pamphlets, public demonstration, public parade, petition to the president. All in all, women’s suffrage movement could not be encompassed by a single movie. However, the move Iron Jawed Angels does show us the marrow part of this movement. The strongest sense of reality that I gained after watching Iron Jawed Angels is the ability of women to make an impact on other women.
Women are more patient than men and it affects them a lot. For this reason women try to solve problems with negotiations. Women are emotionally very uncomfortable with any social turmoil, certainly anything as likely to get them or their children killed as war, and they possess an evolved set of traits that service that proclivity. In this situation women are more likely to compromise. Despite our opinions, most of women are as physically strong as men.
Sade argues for the interrelationship between sexual and political freedom. How does Philosophy in the Boudoir engage with or dramatise this argument? Do you think it is correct? Argument continues today regarding the Marquis de Sade and the ambiguous representation of his works. For many, his material is judged as what some feminists would define as a “form of violence against women”, whose representations “eroticize male domination”, (Robin Ann Sheets, “Pornography, Fairytales and Feminism” 635), but for many readers of Sade’s work, once they see through the ‘smut’ and the erotica, there is often found by the reader an underlying message which is sometimes seen as radical, or one which was not elaborated further until many years later.
Gender based discrimination tends to happen to more women than men in the workplace, and the article, along with our history, could most likely show why it happens. Sex discrimination has been around for hundreds of years. One of the greatest examples of this discrimination was women and their rights to vote. Women before the 1920’s could never par-take in any presidential elections. That was up until the National American Woman Suffrage Association, or NAWSA, went public with the war on women’s right to vote.
