Hilary Clinton is a strong and effective choice to serve as a messenger and manager of women’s rights globally. She has proven herself as a fierce advocate for women’s rights due to her strong and consistent record of effectively championing women’s rights, economically and politically. She has remained consistent throughout her career as an advocate for gender equality, human rights, and women’s rights policies. Throughout her time in the Senate, she advocated women’s rights and used her status around the world to shine a light on issues of importance for women and girls. Hillary Clinton’s unwavering stance has supported that women lives are just as valuable as any other lives, women’s rights are human’s rights, and anything less is unacceptable. Hilary Clinton understands that the world needs to recognize the unfair injustice being committed against women’s rights. She chooses to speak out, instead of remaining silent. The world must understand and recognize that in the fight for justice, by remaining silent and turning a blind eye, which is considered the same as supporting injustices. Hillary Clinton suggested in her speech the world should no longer ignore the wrongs being globally committed against women, around the globe in today’s society, the issues of inhumanity and injustices are rising as the value on women lives declines.
Throughout the 2016 presidential election, feminism and its influence on politics was a driving force for men and women alike in support of the first female presidential nomination Hillary Clinton; however, the election of Donald Trump has inspired a new wave of feminism in response to the administration of those in office, particularly seen during the International Women’s March.
Furthermore, She provides a strong tone that evaluates the potential of a woman. She presents her speech with facts and with confidence and passion. Her tone is trying to motivate young women to act up and take action. Along the way in her speech she makes up a sarcastic tone by claiming that “[women]do not have executive ability, orderly minds, stability, leadership skills, and they are too emotional”(Chisholm, 149). The use of this tone provides affirmation that conveys young women to feel capable of doing anything that men can do. These words don’t define the potential of women nor their abilities. Women are strong, women can take anything, women are smart, women have leadership. Just like Chisholm, women have a voice to speak up and advocate for a change. Throughout her positives tones, she also presents an emotional appeal to the youth who are going to college and are struggling. In reality, some women don’t get the same opportunity as others.“...when a young woman graduates from college…she is likely to have a frustrating and demanding experience ahead of her”(Chisholm, 149). Women face challenges with their eligibility when applying to jobs. Looking for a job is not as easy for women, it takes time and persistence. Unlike men, who are seen as
When she spoke of the roles that women play in a man’s life caused some women to question their husbands reasonings behind the things that he said. Women were the foundation to men's education and nourishment. Women had to go through the pain to bring the men into this country and they have to face the pain that some men emotionally out them through. Yes, some of those men went home and talked to their wives about who to vote for, but not all of them did, or they did and went against what he and his wife had formally “agreed” on. Women would not have to sit down and discuss such manners if men would just allow women to vote and have a voice of their
For years in the United States of America, women have been battling for their rights. In the early years when the United States were colonies, under the English common law, “By marriage, the husband and wife are one person in the law. The very being and legal existence of the woman is suspended during the marriage, or at least is incorporated into that of her husband under whose wing and protection she performs everything,” (History of Women’s Rights in America). Now in present day America, Hilary Clinton gets the presidential nomination for the Democratic party and becoming the first women to lead a majority party, however she lost the election. Where the United States is today, America would not be like it is now without the leader of the free world, the president. Comparing both President Wilson and Ford, how they help women’s rights, what they accomplished, and how Congress had an impact.
There have been many significant strides since 1970 when women occupied almost no major elective positions in U.S. political institutions. Today’s society has reflected remarkable changes in women’s equality and acceptance. In 2008, Hillary Clinton received 18 million votes when she fought for presidency of the Democratic Party . In 2011, Sarah Palin was listed at the top of her candidates for the Republican presidential nomination. However, women are consistently being underrepresented in the political world reaching beyond just the federal level. Clyde and Thomas attest the underrepresentation to two basic reasons: lack of political ambition as well as historic exclusion of women from professions that tend to lead toward the political arena . Three central barriers contribute to the difficult road ahead for the
The year is 1828 and Andrew Jackson has beat Adams in the campaign for presidency, ultimately leading to the creation of “The Jacksonian Democracy.” Jackson, who came from nothing in comparison to the wealthy, well-educated Adams represented the “common man” and fought for their rights. Looking at America in this light, we see an equalized democracy growing in America, however America seems to have forgotten about the women and blacks that make up more then half the population of the common man. Therefore, America is not growing into a democratized nation, but a nation that favors the white man.
Women have come a long way ever since the 19th Amendment was passed in 1920 and thereafter with the Equal Rights Amendment Act in 1972 to the U.S Constitution. After decades of struggling and protesting, the 19th Amendment was passed and ratified to grant women the right to vote. Fifty-two years later worth of revisions and persistency, the Equal Rights Amendment was ratified in which it declared that everyone had both Human and Civil rights in the States regardless of sex. Not only did these amendments have an immense impact on the lives of women and sequentially with the rest of the citizens of this nation, but on the people of today’s century. Women have done a tremendous job in proving society wrong about the roles women are
When one reflects upon the various characteristics of all the previous presidents in the history of America, one trait has remained unchanged: they have all been male. In well over 200 years and 57 presidential elections, the United States has never elected a woman as president. Still more telling, a woman has never even been nominated to run for president at the top of the ticket of a major national political party in the U.S., and only two, Geraldine Ferraro and Sarah Palin, have been selected for the number two slot. Nevertheless, women have been running for the nation’s highest office even before they earned the right to vote in 1920 with the passage of the 19th Amendment. In 1872 Victoria Claflin Woodhull became the first woman to
Women have proven time and time again that they are capable, strong, and independent. They’ve proven their worth to society and led us to where we are today. While we still face inequalities in our society, we’ve overcome many hardships not only in our home country, but around the world. We can look at each individual woman above and see how her strength, her confidence, and her dedication contributed to the bigger picture. While individually they may seem like small steps, they are raindrops in the hurricane that helped break down the barricades in our world that trapped these women. Each woman helped to destroy the stigma against their weak and frail bodies, their fragile minds and emotions, and their lack of knowledge of the world. Without women, the Allies would have lost the war. It goes to show that sometimes we have to swallow our pride on our social issues and accept that every person is human. Every person is equal, and if given the opportunity, can be just as contributional as their so-called social
The political effect of women in politics cannot be felt with a great magnitude in America. This is because; during this period most women participated in religious, social, economic as well as political activism rather than focusing on occupying real political seats. During 1500-2000 women participated in religious, human rights, education, antislavery, and social reform leadership and activism (Bonnie, 565). Nevertheless, in the 20th century, American women were seen to be more vibrant in politics among them Hillary Clinton who has been
Equality for women has been an ongoing debate for years. Most people recognize the inequality for women in areas besides the business world. However, women in politics is one of the most well-known topics. Until a few years ago, the thought of having a woman as president was absurd. It wasn’t until the 2008 election that the idea of a woman for president would change drastically. Both Sarah Palin and Hilary Clinton decided to run in the 2008 presidential election. Although neither of the two were elected, they both still made a dramatic impact on the views of women in politics. Michelle Bernard states that the 2008 election was a breakthrough for women in general. However, Marie Cocco disagrees, stating that the loss was a major disappointment for women. Although both authors feel strongly about their
Admittedly, Hilary Clinton has spoken around the world about the challenges that women have faced. However, it is the continued struggle of American women that inspires and fuels her passion and fight for equality in this male-dominated culture. Also, while married to bill Clinton who was actively involved in women’s right, Hilary advocated for a standard of equality that embrace all colors and cultures. . Clinton establishes ethos when she states, “Over the past 25 years, I have worked persistently on issues relating to women, children, and families. Over the past two and a half years, I've had the opportunity to learn
In the Joseph Conrad’s novel, Heart of Darkness, Marlow, the main character, shows his opinion of women in a well masked, descriptive manner. Although women are not given a large speaking role ,the readers still feel their presence throughout the novel. In the scene at the Central Station, the description of the symbols in the painting,the blindfold, the torch, and the darkness, allow the readers to see the darkness in the world and the thought that women should not be exposed to that darkness. Marlow believe that women are too fragile to know the truth and should instead be left in their beautiful, untouched world.
The political arena is a tough place to be part of, especially during a campaign. Your opponent and their supporters are constantly watching your every move with the hopes that you will make a mistake, or that somebody will find some detrimental dirt on you. Now imagine also being a woman, not only will you have to face the hardships that male candidates cope with but you will also have to handle the adversity based on your gender and the stereotypes that go along with being a female. Women have to be prepared to confront the fact that they may not even be wanted in that setting. For example Margaret Carlson stated,
