Creating an agenda to fight to challenges facing American feminism and their activist groups is not of particular consequence. The rights that we all enjoy today have been won for the American woman through years of poor treatment and indifference to the change. Resistance and division have been met with empowerment and acceptance. Women being recognized in their own individual cultures as productive, intelligent people of the human race who are capable of doing more than having and raising children has grown even more so in recent years. The obstacles that women face as they continue to secure their place professionally have not changed, only the American feminism and it’s adaptation to them.
For the American feminism movement to stay stationary would have been impossible. With varying circumstances, the common factors binding women of class and race in oppression provided the unity necessary to create deeply motivated and political moves they made. Separating themselves into groups allowed each to individually establish and challenge their own socio-economic struggles. With the ideology being so deeply rooted in liberalism, the women of the American feminism movement perpetuated changes that were once inconceivable in America. Madame Marie Curie once said “You cannot hope to build a better world without improving the individuals living in it.” This could have been the cornerstone for American feminism.
Famous women across races and generations have made stands for what they believe. It is, however, still the call of the American feminism supporter to maintain the management of empowering our young women to do what it takes to secure the means to keep what others have worked so hard for; women’s rights. Be it Jane Austen or Rosa Parks, the human race is made up of two, not one, types of beings, each designed to compliment the other.
From the 1791 Declaration of the Rights of Women, all seventeen articles of it, to the House Bill 2007 recently adopted in the state of Oregon, the issues and concepts imported, yet detached from past traditionalism, are no more or less than simple studies of status quo. Whatever is acceptable is such for the entire community. These deviate forms of social intelligence identify themselves on politically, racially, socially and culturally built platforms. Because of prejudices and generational formed translations, women still do not yet enjoy equal rights and access to control a family’s resources. Access to money, housing, education and health are all allowed for men. The experiences of women have taught us that while all are created equal, all are not treated equal.
