The premiership of Tony Blair has been marked by criticism over decision-making without adequate debate. However, a minister’s threat of resignation could potentially threaten the life of the government. All ministers therefore had to keep onboard. For example, Thatcher’s cabinet all told her to leave. Cabinet government model tells us that it’s a reminder that despite the growth of the PM power no PM can survive if he or she loses the support of the cabinet.
By 1914, both the women’s suffrage groups had very little success in achieving the ultimate goal of women being able to vote in general elections. The two main suffrage groups, the suffragists and the suffragettes both struggled to change the minds of the british government to allow women to vote despite over forty years of campaigning. The suffragists’ peaceful protest campaign had failed to get the attention of the government and the British public but the suffragettes’ militant campaign gained publicity for issue but caused severe damage to the campaigned, branding women as reckless and irresponsible, marching the campaign backwards. Other weaknesses within the campaign such as the suffragists unwillingness to push the liberal government into giving women the vote and suffragettes refusal of help from trade unions such as the Labour movement also caused the campaign to progress extremely slowly. Politicians lack of sympathy towards the cause could of also explain the lack of progress but also the suffrage movement’s inability to demonstrate to politicians why women deserved the vote could attribute to the lack of success in achieving the aims of female enfranchisement.
The quick involuntary separation from the company came as a shock to many people. Apotheker was an experienced business executive with much knowledge. Hewlett Packard’s Chairman, Ray Lane stated, “the problem with Apotheker wasn't lack of vision as much as a lack of execution and communication” (Goldman, 2011). Lack of communication was one thing that caused Apotheker to lose out what could have eventually turned into a successful career with Hewlett Packard. Within the same month that Apotheker separated from the company, former CEO of eBay, Meg Whitman replaced Apotheker.
Sadly, over the past few years the public has grown weary and hesitant toward the upcoming elections because of recent misfortunes. Should someone else be elected? To what standard should they be judged? For starters, the characteristics of a leader must be the paramount standard of verdict; although Sarah Palin has been offensively troubled by the media on the simplest of matters, her personality and character is equivalent, if not more tolerable than President Obama’s. Once entirely understood, maybe the United States will alter its criteria.
Throughout the Ancien Regime, women were hardly considered to be people capable of rational thought, and the disorder of the revolutionary government meant that much of the planned policy that may have helped women was never enacted. This disorder also meant that women, many of whom had been speaking out for gender equality, were silenced as terror swept the nation. While it is easy to look at these events through a bitter feminist lens, the Revolution was built on top of ideas that had existed for centuries, and although the revolutionaries moved to erase the old order; deeply ingrained prejudices are not easily erased. In the beginning, the French Revolution did intend to exclude women from the universal struggle for “liberty, equality,
My assumption is that the researching job did not provide well enough to support her. One day while stuck on a delayed train is when she got the idea for her Harry Potter series. She started writing then and already had the plots made for the books shortly after. She knew within a few years how many books she would write and exactly what was going to be happening inside of them. It is said that J.K Rowling was married for a short period of time, although her marriage did not work out and she ended it.

Like Jane Addams said in The Spirit of Youth and the City Streets in 1909 (Document C) the government was so concerned about industry that they forgot the well being of children.

Yet there are many criticisms that are aimed at Dangerfield and his ideas, many believe he overlooked the achievements of the Liberals, the impact of New Liberalism and he made many other misjudgements that make his assessment of the pre war era for the Liberals inaccurate. Numerous bills the Liberals put forward were rejected by the House of Lords, which were dominated by Conservatives who used the House of Lords as a second strand of opposition to the Liberals. It was in April 1909 with the rejection of the controversial 'People's Budget' the situation reached its mos... ... middle of paper ... ...le to achieve many successes. The Liberals did not have an easy time in government, but fought their battles valiantly, introducing social reform on the way. Election results also suggest that the Liberal Government were not heading for failure but proceeding to continue strongly.
Women were excluded from higher roles within society until very recently, because of that women are stigmatized as less effective leaders. Until the vast majority of women become more assertive and not allow men to dictate there behaviors women will continue to be less likely chosen as the leader of a group. Less likely chosen does not mean less able to do the job, perceptive emotional skills are more than likely to be satisfied and effective, especially as leaders. References Forsyth, D. R. (1999).

Before 1982 according to sources, “No British leader in recent times had been so unpopular” (Garfinkel, 1985) Before 1982 she had very little support, even from her own Party, the idea Of Thatcher ever leading her party to an election win seemed nearly impossible. (Garfinkel, 1985) According to the literature, by 1979 she was being criticized for the failure of her programme and her strongest critics were saying that she essentially did not have the ability to handle the Prime Minister’s job. These criticisms continued in 1981 and most people living in Britain were reluctant to give Thatcher even her first five years. She had managed to win the General Election in 1979 but the general opinion was that unless the economy improved dramatically, Thatcher would surely lose the election in 1983. However, no one had anticipated the Falklands War or Thatcher’s fighting spirit as suggested when she famously said, “I have only one thing to say: you turn if you want to; the Lady’s not for turning.” (Gold, 2008).
