Feminism

I think, to gain true equality, men and women need to work together. I believe that if men and women can work together, they will get a lot more work done. A woman will think of the plan that she wants to execute and the man will go through with the plan. If we could do that, we would have more solutions to problems and hopefully resolve the problem.
A couple of things that I hope Clinton will change is equal pay for equal experience. Not equal pay for equal work. One thing that I am sure will change is more women will believe that they can run for more powerful positions in the government.
Clinton has had experience in the White House and knows how the role of President works. She is also Secretary of State so she knows how the government works.
I do not believe that we need feminism. I believe that we need to learn not to put each other down simply because we don’t agree with the others views. People need to see that men don’t rule the world, nor do women.
While it is true that some men do not view women as their equals; do we really need a specific movement that is for women? No, we don’t. We need a movement that is specifically for equality. If we can do this, then I believe that the world will be a better place.

One of the greatest inspirations during World War II for women was Rosie the Riveter. The made-up character had a poster of her showing off her biceps and saying “We Can Do It.”

After the war was over the men returned and took the jobs Continue reading and add your comment

Feminism: Then

The reason I am writing this article is because (as I’m sure you have heard) Hilary Clinton was nominated by the Democratic party to run for president. She would be the first female president. It would be one of the greatest accomplishments in feminism history. Even if she does not become president, her nomination is still a great accomplishment.

In this article I want to look at the history of women’s power and women’s rights. It has varied a lot over the years.

Let’s begin in Egypt, where women sometimes ran everything. Continue reading and add your comment
