Transcript of Womens Rights
"The women of this country ought be enlightened in regard to the laws under which they live, that they may no longer publish their degradation by declaring themselves satisfied with their present position, nor their ignorance, by asserting that they have all the rights they want."
Elizabeth Cady Stanton (1815-1902),
Women enter the work force
Men through out history have always had a bigger paycheck than women even when they have the same exact job and position. Currently for every dollar a man makes, a women only makes 77 cents. For example, If Ms. Garino has been working for 10 years as a principal for the SJUSD and another male principal has been working for 10 years, he would still get paid more regardless of how much Ms. Garino does for Pioneer. This is extremely unfair. Women work just as hard and put in as much time as men do. Woman are underestimated and deserve more credit for the work they do. Women have been fighting to get payed the same amount of money as men for as long as they entered the work force so why does this issue keep being ignored?

In July 1848, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucretia Mott started the first Women's Rights Convention. It was held in Seneca Falls, New York where more than 300 women and men showed up.What inspired Stanton and Mott to start a Women's Rights movement was when they attended an Anti-Slavery convention, but were denied a seat since they were women and didn't belong in politics. At the meeting, they wrote a plan called the Declaration of Sentiments which was a plan about fighting for women's rights. The plan had 12 steps and more than half of them have been fulfilled since 1848. A few months later, they held a national meeting where more than 2,000 women and men showed up.Stanton and Mott met Susan B Anthony who also played a huge part in the Women's Rights Movement at the convention. Their main goal was to have a law passed stating women should be allowed to vote. Later known as the 19th Amendment. Over hundreds or organizations tried to raise awareness that it wasn't right that our government was denying the ability for women to vote even though they were citizens. It took over 70 years for congress to even consider the right for women to vote. On August 18th, 1920 The 19th Amendment was ratified and women could know vote. Its crazy that that whole process took over 70 years and Stanton, Mott, and Anthony never gave up once. Following the 19th amendment, women were also granted to right to own land and they even won the fight to get paid maternity leave.
"Join the union, girls, and together say Equal Pay for Equal Work."
Between 1930 and 1945, World War II, The New Deal, and The Depression shaped and changed women's working experience. Many men were forced to join and leave for the army to help fight in the war. When they left thousands of jobs were left unattended so women took the responsibility and started working. They suffered many hardships on the working force. No one would ever take them seriously because they were women. They were constantly harassed and their bosses would not pay them as much as men working the same exact job. Women were seen as being delicate and not as smart as men so when they started working people didn't think they were capable of accomplishing just as much as men.
Susan B Anthony
Most women in America's society today have almost as many rights and opportunities as men do. It is a vast improvement that has happened only in the past 100 years or so. Only a matter of years ago it would have been unheard of for a women to be respected in any position of power. Any man working under a woman usually did not consider her in any high regard. Today though,both men and women have absolutely no problem or concerns working for each other. It is considered completely normal for women to have important roles and contribute the same as men do.
Elizabeth Cady Stanton
Women often get discriminated against when it comes to the work force. The most common stereo type is that women belong in the kitchen and should stay home and clean all day while the man in the house goes out to make a living. But what about the families that need both income in order to live a stable life, or a single mom trying to put food on the dinner table, or a wife with an injured husband who can’t work. The goal in life is to make a living and no one should have certain rights taken away.Women wanting to work should not be considered a bad thing. Women are people to who deserve to payed just as much as men.
Why do Women not get the same paycheck as men even though they are doing the same Job?
This is a Man's World
"Girls can do anything boys can do". Women have had a huge impact on America. There's women teachers, doctors,lawyers, politicians, all around America. Needless to say America wouldn't be the same without women. In 2008 Sarah Palin was the first women in the United States to run for vice president, that proves that a women is capable of doing any job a man could do. We even have women on the supreme court. If women are capable of doing the same jobs men can do then it makes no sense that they get payed less just because of their gender.
Women should be getting payed just as much as men because they are doing the exact same job the exact same why and it just simply isn't fair to pay a women less just because she's a women. She was born that way, you can't choose what gender you want to be born. Women deserve the same equal rights as men. Women in the work force is very common so it only makes sense to give them the same pay check as men. Hopefully in the future women will get payed the same amount of money as men, it might seem impossible now but so did women voting at the time, but we can.
