She also said "because we live in a heteropatriarchy, (feminism includes) going out of your way to support women and help lessen the gap - I will be post-feminist in the post patriarchy." I also heard from a friend named Beth that "a feminist is someone who believes in equal rights for women, even in football". She thinks that they "go out and fight, sometimes bra-less." Greta says that a feminist is "a person who respects and is considerate towards women's rights and will do anything in their power to achieve them.
Power feminists really encourage women to step up and take responsibility for their own lives and to stop feeling like victims while other groups feel like they really are victims and choose to fight for their rights in different ways. It is safe to say that maybe these various groups will never fully agree on everything, but perhaps by cooperating even a little bit they can accomplish the goals they both share.

1.To some equality means fighting for the same rights and opportunities as others, or it may mean being able to live life knowing that you are not being discriminated by others, and given the same chance to live life as they want. Emma Goldman and Ellen Richards both had the idea of equality for women, but they both had very different ways of looking at it. They both thought that women should have a more significant role in society. Their ideas were completely different. Emma Goldman had a more revolutionist view on getting women more rights.
Deviance is weighed by the society’s reactions to the particular behavior, also it is measured by the society’s way of life so that it defines the unwelcoming behavior. It ignores the social order and some organizations believe, the reality in the society. The violation of the social norm in the society can be meant to be utilized as a way of sustaining power, position, and influence of a specific group of people or organizations in the society setting. In most cultures, it is based on the values, deeds, and beliefs that are achieved through interaction among the people in the society.

Fiercely independent and far from conventional Mary Wollstonecraft called for more equality between the sexes; she ignited the flame that would turn into the feminist movement we know today. Wollstonecraft was a key founder of feminist philosophy. A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792) stated her view that women should have a wider access to education, not taught to depend on their beauty. “A committed women’s liberationist cannot retire from the job, only die at it.” (Dann, 1985) Mary Wollstonecraft encompassed this perfectly. “I do not wish them [women] to have power over men; but over themselves” (Wollstonecraft, 1995).
All three authors express their extreme desire for women to become independent and be taken into account by society as individuals and be treated equally as men.

Hawthorne uses Hester’s reaction to her punishment of wearing the letter A, to show women can survive in society without being dependent on men. Additionally, Hawthorne uses Hester’s relationship with Chillingworth and Puritan authorities to represent how women can be dominant. Furthermore, Hawthorne breaks down normal gender characteristics by switching the typical male and female traits of the characters in the novel. Because Hester was able to take care of herself and Pearl socially and economically as a single mother, Hawthorne proves that women can survive in society without being dependent on men. Hawthorne states “The tendency of her fate and fortunes had been to set her free.

Eastman played a huge part in showing how women struggled to stamp their existence of being treated equally in society, to be free from discrimination and harassment in the social areas. Eastman would be proud that her life long work for equality for women has been achieved through progress, and wiliness for something greater than themselves. The dedication, which enabled American women the equal status of men, abolished the gender barriers and granted all women the freedom they so deserved.
Voicing their opinions, both writers clearly stand on the idea that women are subordinate to males. Sandberg though not claiming to be a feminist both women strive to gain equal rights with men. An example of this was when Sandberg expressed her thoughts to “urge more women to believe in themselves and aspire to lead...seek out larger” (Sandberg 658). Similar to this hooks writes “Weather feminist or not, we all need to remember that visionary feminist goal which is not of a woman running the world as is, but a woman doing our part to change the world so that freedom and Justice, the opportunity to have optimal well-being, can be equally shared by everyone- female and male” (hooks
