Their quest for rights has always been around, but sometimes it was a more noticeable attempt then the ones before. Slowly over time women gained very basic rights that were still based on marriage difficulties. It was not until much later that women got any political rights. All of the rights women gained slowly were acquired over time. Even the smallest right was considered a victory to women be... ... middle of paper ... ... by the women themselves.
Today’s women should pay their respect to the women of the past by celebrating their freedom and by continuing what they have started. If it were not for the suffragists’ courage and bravery, the world would have been so different from now. Without their movement, modern women would not be able to attain so much freedom such as being able to work, to get involve in politics and become leaders, and being able to own businesses. Such freedom has opened many doors for women all over the world at the present and in the future. Work Cited 1.
During the Industrial Revolution women soon began working in factories and were given an extremely low salary for tedious work. Even though it was a small amount, having the ability to earn salary gave women more independence. Women were delighted to fulfill these positions for the reason of getting the opportunity to escape the house. Having money gave women more of an opportunity to have an influence and make something out of themselves more than just a housewife. At the beginning of the nineteenth century, prior to the Industrial Revolution, women were restrained and could not speak out for themselves.
Despite the discrimination, women were more in demand in the workplace as the decade progressed.The economic need for women in the workplace continued to increase. The industrialization of the country also attracted a lot of women workers because women needed some of these jobs more than men. Women were workers in the computer industry as the technology grew, as well as fast food industries, in which flexible hours and part time work were essential for those with children. Women who did succeed or achieve recognition often faced discrimination because they were women. Women weren’t treated fairly economically, socially or politically.
I believe the presence of working women has strengthened our economic system, as Harris said “successful campaigns for the expansion of girls’ education and employment have coincided with a restructured global economy and a class/gender system that now relies heavily on young women’s labor” (6). It shocks me that women used to be expected to be a housewife and depend on their husband to provide for the family. However, just because women are more independent today does not mean they are radical feminists who cannot love, Weiss describes how women “should reject those relationships that demand or contribute to our subjugation… this does not mean…that we are not very loving” (12). Being independent is important but women still value all of the aspects of relationships and friendships, they are just now able to go and accomplish their goals without judgement. There have been so many discoveries and research done by women that have influenced modern day science that would not and could not have been done if women were not encouraged to be curious and seek higher education.
Feminism is relevant today because it is about being a capable, respected, and an accomplished women. Each woman has their own strengths to benefit every area of society making a better mother, wife, daughter, sister, and friend. Feminism has grown and changed with each generation to adapt to each new struggle. Young women today view feminism much differently than decades in the past. Today’s female is strong, intelligent, passionate, and hard-working.
With the profound ability that women have to multi-task and care so much about different things, they can easily become virtuous people. This is not only demonstrated with the fight that so many women put up with in order to become successful with women 's suffrage, but can still be seen in the fight today for women 's equality. We currently live in a time where more women are succeeding in the work force than ever before. Despite women still having the pressure to maintain a structured and successful family and home life, more women are also now establishing successful careers. Despite the fact that women have become equally educated and gain the same amount of work experience, gender inequality still exists in the work place.
Instead of - and in some cases, in addition to - working to raise a family, young women in this generation are now out getting educated and becoming doctors, lawyers, engineers, and much more. Since women have entered the work force wholeheartedly, the demand for gender equality has become exceedingly reverberant. Since women have expanded their work ethic over the years, the desire to be treated equally with men has greatly increased; and, women are now striving for equal pay in the workplace ... ... middle of paper ... ...Lastly, even after taking notice of the forms of gender inequality practically hidden in plain sight and tackling stereotypes that make women seem incapable of achieving more than men, women and men need to also establish, promote, and enforce a set of principles in the workplace that protect against gender inequality. Employers can enact their own policies to apply consistently.

Introduction Throughout the history of mankind, the rank of women has been extremely pivotal in the development of the humans. At present, the progress of the nation is determined by the high positions of the women in the society in terms of the employment and the work. It is said that without the contribution of the women in the political, business, social, economic and national activities, the growth of the country will stagnate. In the past, the women were more accustomed to working in homes and taking care of children, etc. but now they are stepping into the outside world due to advances in education for women and increasing awareness.
Growing up as a female has never been easy. Men assumed women only had two jobs, keeping the house clean and bearing children. Luckily, many women in history have paved the way making it easier for all women in the 21st century to work outside the house, vote, earn more money, hold positions of power and achieve all their dreams. Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Madeleine Albright, and Lucy Stone, just to name a few, each had a hand in helping little girls dream big dreams and realize that their dreams were achievable. Through their hard work, determination and suffering, women are more equal than ever.
