Industry played a key role in propelling the women suffrage movement because the jobs that were now being created were of domestic relevance. All kinds of female-oriented jobs were emerging and with these jobs also came female empowerment. It was considered socially unacceptable for a man to partake in domestic duties and these jobs served as the backbone for progressivism in the American industry by essentially giving women a “foot in the door” to revolutionizing the American industrial system as well as the political barbarisms that slowed progress in our society. Soon after the emergence of women in the workplace came a female political voice in American government. However, a female political voice proved much more difficult to
Women in the red cross were heplful in recruiting men who had not joined the war. Volunteering boght women out of the house and into the public.

In this essay, I will discuss what Eleanor Roosevelt’s activities revealed about the limitations of women in the early twentieth century. I will also examine whether she challenged or reinforced traditional conceptions of women’s “proper” role. I will also comment on historian Allida Black’s conclusion about Eleanor’s achievements and biggest failure as a first lady. First, Eleanor Roosevelt fought very hard in order to encourage women to become more knowledgeable. One of the biggest restrictions that ER found was that women at that time did not know how to read the newspaper.
Many people soon began to admire the patriotism of these women who had been denied equality for so long by a large proportion of the country now wanted to help maintain the same country. Women began to take a major role in a wide range of industries including Munitions, Hospitals and farm land. They also took over industries that had been male dominated before the war including the police with the creation of the Women Police Volunteers and shipbuilding due to dilution. Women also were able to enter the armed forces due to the creation of the Women’s Auxiliary Army Corps. This amount of enthusiasm and energy women showed at work changed male attitude towards them and many realised these women were perfectly capable of being able to vote.

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.

With this being recognized, men should have more respect for women. It is important for both women and men to understand the new found rights that have been granted to women in the world. We are not as weak and fragile as we used to be in the past. Throughout history, women began to become stronger as life has put us to the test.

A serious problem that should be addressed is women using abortion as a method of birth control; sometimes women go to clinics 2-3 times a month to have abortions. That is something that is not healthy for a woman physically or emotionally. Abortion is an experience many women like to block out because most women didn’t want to do it but felt it was necessary. Abortion should not be used as a means of birth control but as a means of finding a solution to future problems. Abortion should only be done in matters where women feel it may be most necessary like in the examples that were stated above.
