history

The roots of feminism were planted millennia ago; we must understand feminism throughout history to contemplate how much farther we can go.

    THE SUFFRAGETTE MOVEMENT

    THE SUFFRAGETTE MOVEMENT

    A Suffragette was a member of militant women’s organizations in the early 20th century who, under the banner “Votes for Women”. Fought for the right to vote in public elections, known as women’s suffrage. The term refers in particular to members of the British ‘Women’s Social and Political Union’ (WSPU), a women-only movement founded in 1903 by Emmeline Pankhurst, which engaged in direct action and civil disobedience. In 1906 a reporter writing in the Daily Mail coined the term ‘Suffragist,’ in an attempt to belittle the women advocating women’s suffrage. The militants embraced the new name, even adopting it for use as the title of the newspaper published by the WSPU.

    The Lost Generation

    The Lost Generation

    It’s easy for one to imagine the colossal leap basic education has bounded in the last hundred years. Back in the 20’s women were just being allowed into colleges, albeit these were mostly colleges for women only. Harvard didn’t even allow women on the main campus; a separate college called Radcliffe worked with Harvard but did not give out diplomas until 1963. Although most women were allowed equal education through certain colleges, they were not allowed an equal diploma.

    Beyoncé Was Right The Whole Time ...

    Equal rights, equal opportunity. It seems that the crusade of women to prove that they are competent enough to run businesses, intelligent enough to invest in stock markets, ruthless enough to be the head of a corporation that sells manly stuff, might not be entirely accurate.
