Women in the 20th Century
In this assignment, you will be challenged to answer the question, “How was ___ a significant change for women in the 20th century?”
We will examine this question based on the premise that there are 5 potential answers to the question:
1) Universal Suffrage – throughout the world, many jurisdictions gave women the right to vote.
2) The World Wars - the World Wars saw women in the workplace and demonstrated that they were capable of work outside of the domestic sphere.
3) Feminism – the rise of political and social self-awareness, rise of women leaders, the three waves of feminism
4) The Pill and Legal Reproductive Control – women decide when to have kids
5) Equality Legislation – ERA and affirmative action.
* A combination of the above led to the point where women came to be in government and business leadership positions. You will want to address this where appropriate.
Your group will be assigned to advocate one of the 5 positions outlined above as momentous. You are to: 1) Produce an informative and argumentative wiki article that illustrates the history of your aspect and also supports it with logic and evidence. 2) Produce a five-minute presentation of your argument to the “forum”. You must be prepared to answer questions posed by the forum. 3) Question other presenters so as to shed light on the issues and perhaps strengthen your argument/position or theirs.
We are seeking truth and trying to make it a collaborative effort. Please contribute to your utmost ability. Assessment on wiki – please remember to include your names in your respective wiki articles
