AP: Feminism Is a Thing Now
Transcript of AP: Feminism Is a Thing Now
-Women played large role in French Revolution (riots in Paris, storming the Bastille) and participated in French war economy
-Can human society be "re-created" to have equal rights for women?
-English Mary Wollstonecraft was inspired to write "Vindication of the Rights of Women"
"Make women rational creatures, and free citizens, and they will quickly become good wives; - that is, if men do not neglect the duties of husbands and fathers."
Issues (Europe and U.S.A.)
-Access to education
-Vote (not until 1920...)
-Access to professions
-Right to divorce
Seneca Falls, NY- 1848
-First "organized expression of feminism" at meeting
-Elizabeth Cady Stanton drafted "New Declaration of Independence" stating "We hold these truths...all men and women are created equal"
Elizabeth Cady Stanton: Women's Bible
-Published a biblical translation of Old Testament in 1895 that made women look better
-Everyone freaks out, even other feminists, and she is ruined forever
-"We have made a fetich [sic] of the Bible long enough. The time has come to read it as we do all other books, accepting the good and rejecting the evil it teaches."
Suffragettes in England
-"Suffrage"- what is that?
-Mostly peaceful protest, however some (British Women's Social and Political Union) were violent, smashing shops and blowing up railroad stations
-Emily Davison killed in protest at Derby Race in 1913
-Many women committed to mental institutions
Right to Vote:
New Zealand: 1893
Britain: 1918 (with conditions- land ownership and education)
Today, we will be talking about events in late 18 and 1900s.
Dont get confused! Your textbook is organized topically, not chronologically. We are not done talking about the 1700s. We are jumping in time a bit.
Florence Nightingale- 1850s Crimean War
1879- A Doll's House
-Much of this is happening at the same time socialism (which we will talk about later) is growing as its own movement
-Feminists and socialists are often linked together by conservatives/nationalists as a common enemy.
-We still have this link to this day.
Chapter 16 quiz tomorrow
Next text will likely by Thursday of next week. It will be on chapter 15, 16, and a smidge of 17.
