Women Of The Century – Important Women Of The 20th Century
In the year 2021, after a bruising campaign by Bill Clinton and his strong support from within his own party for his wife Hillary Clinton, the former First Lady was elected for her role as the first women U.S President. Although the historic nature of this feat has not faded, it has certainly changed the landscape of American politics and paved the way for women in general to become more politically active. Not only have women become more involved in local, state, and federal politics, but they have also gained ground in the executive branch of government. And perhaps one of the greatest strides in women’s political activism has been the push for women’s suffrage. The 19th amendment to the constitution granted women the right to vote.
Since then, many groups, including third parties and interest groups have fought for women’s suffrage. Recently, a popular argument against women’s suffrage is the idea that we live in a “patriarchal” society where men are the leaders. This argument is essentially a cultural conservative viewpoint about the nature of government. Although it has been a popular argument throughout history, it is now gaining more prominence in the 21st century. One of the most compelling arguments against women’s suffrage is the belief that we live in a “glass house” society – whereby men are the only ones that can lead.
The Augmented Reality (AR) theory suggests that people are much more proactive in their everyday lives due to technological advancements. According to augmented reality theory, people do not only see what they want to see, they also see it surrounded by a multitude of different images. This type of technology allows people to be “smart” by picking up on patterns and behaviors that others around them do not. For example, a doctor may use an app to see what a patient is eating. This doctor may not be able to read minds, but he or she can observe a different menu than those at the table.
Another influential woman of the early twenty-first century was Frances Woodrow Wilson, who as president of the United States passed the nineteenth amendment. The nineteenth amendment gave women the right to vote. Women Of The Century can thank the 19th amendment for having the chance to gain the right to vote. If women had been granted the right to vote before the nineteenth amendment, many women throughout the country would not have the opportunity to gain the right to stand up for themselves. Women Of The Century believes that the nineteenth amendment gave women the chance to achieve equality in the eyes of the law, which in turn gave them the chance to determine their own destiny.
One of the most influential and important women of the early twentieth century was Anna Jarvis. Anna Jarvis was born in 1905 and was a pioneering African-American women’s rights advocate and social justice organizer. She is regarded as one of the single most influential women of the century, along with Amelia Earhart. Anna Jarvis believed in a strong women’s right to be self-sufficient and protect her rights as well as the rights of all other women. This is what was known as civil rights at that time.
Anna Jarvis had this to say about civil rights “I am an African American woman in the United States of America and I believe in the equality of men and women and I also believe in the goodness of people and love them because I see the beauty of our common humanity shining through every shade of custom, race, creed and color. We must work to stop discrimination and prejudice and we must help one another. Now is the time to come together and not separate ourselves by lines demarcating geographical locations. Let us live, breathe and love as we know you do and believe that this day is a day of joy for all of us.”
