Influential Women after World War II 6th period Guyer

  1. 1. Influential Women After WW2<br />Alli Bee (Allison Albee)<br />Boone Shañe (Shane Bowers)<br />TayRay`nay (Taylor Foster)<br />
  2. 2. Introduction<br /> Up until the last century, women very rarely had an influence upon anything from government to the way their own houses would look. Most lived in a man’s world, where their only role was to keep the house and take care of the children. We researched however,the trend towards influential women, specifically picking six women out of the many that have had an impact on the world today. <br />
  3. 3. Target Question<br />Who are some of the most influential women of the past century?<br />The women we chose are: Mother Teresa, Sarah Palin, Hillary Clinton, Rosa Parks, Eleanor Roosevelt and Condoleezza Rice.<br />
  4. 4. Who, What, When, Where, Why<br /> Who were some of the most influential women of the past century?<br />What were some of their contributions to the better of the world?<br />Why was their influence powerful in the political or ethical realm?<br />Where were their contributions most appreciated or significant?<br />When did their agendas and contributions take place?<br />
  5. 5. Mother Teresa<br />Mother Teresa, born in 1910, had a life goal from the age of twelve to become a missionary to spread God’s love. After training in Dublin, she took her vows as a nun and taught at St. Mary’s High School in Calcutta. Years later, she  felt deeply that she was being called to leave the convent and help in the poor slums in Calcutta. She, with the help of the church and the Divine Providence, opened a free school for the children in the slums. In 1950, Mother Teresa started her own order, ‘The Missionaries of Charity’, whose main goal was to care for those who couldn’t find help elsewhere, such as those with leprosy. Her charity work and care for others has, over the years, earned her international fame, and made her one of the most influential women in the past century.<br />
  6. 6. Sarah Palin<br />Sarah Palin, born 1964, was raised in Wasilla, Alaska. In her early life, Palin worked in a small family-owned business with her husband while raising a family, but was later to be elected as the youngest and first women elected as the Governor of Alaska. In 2008’s presidential election, Palin was chosen to be Republican candidate, John McCain’s running mate, also making her the second women to be in the runny as vice-president. Palin’s active run during the 2008 election brought also brought about speculation that she may run in the 2012 election. <br />
  7. 7. Hillary Clinton<br />Hillary Rodham Clinton started off the earlier years of her life as a Republican- much farther than what she is now- however she has always been majorly involved in politics. At the age of 13 she was already hosting meetings and playing a large part in the political arena at her high school. She also met Martin Luther King Jr. to discuss some of the racial issues in her town of Chicago. Hillary has always been a huge supporter of Child rights and one who has made major milestones as a woman in politics. She is regarded as one of the most influential First Ladies’ since Eleanor Roosevelt.<br />
  8. 8. Rosa Parks<br />After having to take care of her mother and grandmother the first 20 years of her life, Rosa Parks was able to graduate high school and get her diploma where she went on to become a secretary for many NAACP functions, alongside her husband who was a committee member for a long period of time. At the time of her arrest, she had been helping plan a youth rally for the civil rights movement. <br />One of her biggest beliefs was that change was fronted by the younger generation, and that they were the only ones who would find results. She believed that it was her responsibility to inform them. <br />
  9. 9. Eleanor Roosevelt<br /> Eleanor Roosevelt was born on October 11, 1884 in New York City. At the age of eight her mother died, and less than two years later her father did as well. At the age of fifteen, she was sent off to a finishing school just outside of London, England. The headmistress inspired much of the dignity and sense of humbleness that was shown through her actions as she grew up, as well as a strong sense of self worth and an admirable sense of wit. At 17, she met her fathers 5th cousin, Franklin Roosevelt, and was engaged by December of 1904. During his illnesses in the early 1920's, Eleanor overcame her shyness she had as a child, and began to take many different sides in her husband's political realm. Today, she is best known for her outspoken pro- civil rights activist activities, and one of the first women to break the barrier on women's rights as well. <br />
  10. 10. Condoleezza Rice<br />Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice was raised in the segregated South, but earned her Ph.D. from Graduate School of International Studies at the University of Denver in 1981. After a brief stay in Washington, Rice turned her attention to foreign affairs, and in the 1990’s helped with the dissolution of the Soviet Union alongside former President George Bush. She became the first African American woman to hold the seat of Secretary of State after Colin Powell’s resignation in early 2004. <br />
  11. 11. Controversy: Spotlight on Sarah Palin<br />Negative influence<br /> Some believe that the challenging roles of women today, step over the bounds of the traditional role of women. A good example of this would be Sarah Palin, who’s personal life intruded on the politics she was involved in. This caused many of the people who were behind her to began questioning whether she should be held responsible for the things that were going on in her child’s life. Many still believe that her place was at home taking care of her family, and not being involved in the political world.<br />Positive influence<br /> However, historically, this would be one of the first centuries where women of any race were able to hold the positions that men had- and perform the job just as well. There is nothing to say that this would not have occurred with her present or not. Her political career made it seem more likely that a woman would finally break through the glass ceiling that encircles the political realm. Sarah Palin proved that a woman could do the work of a man, and still maintain a sense of womanness. <br />
  12. 12. Groups point of view<br />Our point of view is that Sarah Palin was right in her actions, as are many women who wish to step into the political women. A cultural phenomenon that is taking place now has not been seen like this since the 1960’s. We believe that it is time for a woman to be able to take as much charge as a man without being scrutinized and criticized for what she believes in. <br />Women are awesome<br />
  13. 13. Conclusion<br />All 6 of these women have each impacted today’s society in a different way, by either breaking down barriers formerly that stood in the way, or by showing a new sense of compassion in a way that had not been previously seen. Women play a heavy role in the development of today’s society, and the role of them has changed drastically, we believe, for the good. <br />
