Transcript of Paradigm Shifts

People who were responsible for the previous paradigm
There is not a specific group of people or a certain individual responsible for this paradigm. This ideology of people that women are not equal to men has been a part of many cultures all along becuase of things like women can't fight. This thinking was then bought over when the United States was colonized.
Year of the paradigm shift
The shift towards equal rights for women was a gradual process. One major turning point in the process was on August 18, 1920 when the 19th amendment was ratified. Another major date was July 2 1964 with the enactment of the Civil Rights act of 1964 which made discrimination illegal based on race, color, religion and gender.
What are paradigm shifts and how they affect our perspective on knowledge?
A paradigm shift is a time when the usual and accepted way of doing or thinking about something changes completely. A paradigm shift affects our perspective on knowledge because it dramatically alters the most common way of thinking.
People who played a major role in Women's rights
There were many people that were involved in the women's rights movement such as -
Jane Addams - major social activist
Alice Paul - founder of the National women's party
Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B Anthony - co-founders of the National women's suffrage association
Carrie Chapman Catt - president of the National American Woman Suffrage Association
William Lloyd Garrison - abolitionist and women's rights advocate.

Related Knowledge Issue
My knowledge issue would be that how do we know women are treated equally just because the law says it. Some people say that women are treated equally because in today in America, there is no major discrimination and because they are given the same opportunities as a man. However, there is evidence that women are not regarded equal to men because they only make 77 cents for every dollar earned by a man.
The women's rights movement in America refers to the development of the notion that women should have the right to vote - called suffrage and that women should possess the same rights as men.The women's rights movement is an example of a history AOK paradigm shift because it changed the way society thought about the role of women. The paradigm prior to the advent of the women's rights movement was the women were to stay in the house and take care of the kids. The proposition that women were equal to men and should do participate in activities like working and voting (having a voice in political matters) was rare. However, due to the women's rights movement, women gained the vote under the 19th amendment and gained equal rights after the Civil Rigths act of 1964.
