Women's Rights

Women's Rights

There are many stories based on women's rights and their roles in the world showing how people thought they should behave, reminding us that women should be treated equally.
In the speech, On Women's Rights to Vote Susan B. Anthony is saying women are just as much as a person as men and should't be treated any differently. In the story Antigone Ismene says this because she believes that them being women conflicts with the fact they cant stand up to the king. In The Yellow Wallpaper the narrator believes everything he husband tells her is true and that the man is always right, which is why she believes she has a illness. These examples state reasons why the women can't do things showing that everyone should be treated equally and have just the same amount of rights.
In The Story of an Hour Mrs. Mallard says this because she no longer has to do what her husband says and she can do what she wants. In On Women's Rights to Vote Sarah B. Anthony is saying that not allowing women to have rights is wrong and for any one to do that is in violation of the supreme law of the land. In Antigone Creon says this because he is so shocked a women would ever do this considering women aren't suppose to express their opinions. These quotes found from the story show the perspective of the women and why everyone should have equality in both men and women.
In The Yellow Wallpaper the narrator says this because the husband has control over the woman and gets to decide what she can and cannot due. In The Story of an Hour Mrs. Mallard says this because she will no longer have to be controlled by her husband and has her own free will. In The Yellow Wallpaper the narrator says this because it was the husbands decision to put her away in the house and he has complete control over what she does. These examples show how the men in their lives controlled them and let them have no freedom.
