The Importance Of Standing Up For Women's Rights

Decent Essays
This speech is a very important part of the history of women's rights. Its standing up for the advancement of women of whatever race, it was time for women to have their rights. It is making the point that colored men were speaking out against miss justices, but women were not speaking up. Women needed to stand up for their rights, they needed to speak out to get the same treatment as men. Women deserve the same pay as a man since they are doing the same amount of work. Colored people got their freedom so it was time for women to get the same freedoms as men. If women didn't start to stand up for their rights, than things would never change, they would just stay the same until action was taken,

It was about time that women spoke their minds without fear of men, so they could finally get the treatment that they deserved.I believe that the authors purpose was to celebrate the success of the black American community, but to also shine a light on the issues within the laws for women. Women had still not been given any of the rights that men had, and she wanted to make a stand and say that it needed to change. Women deserve the same rights as men, and it was time for them to stand up for themselves. The women's suffrage movement was a widespread movement focused on the equality of the sexes.

Although woman have been giving the right to vote, and have been able to go to collage and work in many different fields, equality between men and women has not yet been achieved.

    If women stand up for not only ourselves, but the entire female community, it can hopefully help create equality in men and women. I hope one day that women are equal to men politically, socially, and historically. No gender is superior than the other, no gender dominates the other, and we all deserve equality. Until that day, I want to encourage other women to stand up for what they believe in and to not be ashamed to support the feminist movement. Not all feminist believe in the same things, but they all do support the fight for our…

    Women couldn’t retain a lawyer, sign a contract, inherit property, vote, or have rights over their children.” This quote shows how bad it really was for women in Mary Wollstonecraft’s days, but she still spoke her opinion and still tried to make a stand.

We now have the same rights as men do and we are grateful for her lending us a helping hand and guiding us through it…

    Feminism is meant to help bring everyone up to the same standard, no matter if your race, gender, sexuality, anything. One of the biggest misconceptions of feminism, is that men cannot be feminists. Of course men can be feminists! The only requirement to be a feminist is that you believe everyone deserves gender equality! Feminism is meant to be a thing that is shared and unites people, not something that tears people apart.…

Yet somehow a federal law is still in effect which only requires men of the ages 18 to 25 to register for the United States military draft. Women also cannot be left out in this unfair law, whether they like it or not,…

    We as women seek freedom and liberty of wanting what we want and being able to go out there and get it. There should have never been an era where men had such great power over women. They shouldn’t live with the inability of not being able to be heard. All these women wanted the right to vote, to make grievances and to be able to meet as a group. They felt as though they had every right to obtain an education as well as more knowledge to become better workers.…

    Women gained the right to vote, life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness as well as regular rights of American citizens. By 1966 women gained the right to work at jobs that were previously unavailable to women, vote and dress just as men could. The vision outlined in the NOW statement has almost been achieved. Men and women are almost equal except for the fact that women do not receive equal pay for executing the same jobs that men do and women are often looked down upon in the work place. Despite women's major contributions to society, they are still missing a key component to be considered equal in society, but it is still possible to achieve…

    Introduction to Women Women are a proud gender who have fought hard and continue fighting for their rightful place in society throughout history. It is no argument that women today are treated much better than they have been in the past but that is not to say there are no lingering inequalities that affect women negatively everyday, even in western society. Whilst law typically does not differ between genders, and in theory men and women are allowed to have mostly the same occupations there are still issues such as body rights, street safety, stereotypes, oppression, socially constructed expectations and more. We have seen serious oppression towards females and an undeniable inequality amongst humans simply for their gender ranging from strict…

    If young girls are taught to pursue their passions, and never let anything get in their way our society will accept the fact that women share equal rights and opportunities to those of men. This may take a while, and won’t be an easy task, but just like any other movement of equality it will pay off. When our daughters see the limitations gender inequality pose on their lives,…
