Discuss women’s contribution to reform efforts from the beginnings of the 19th century through the Progressive Era.
You must complete two essays. You must complete essay 2& 3. A essay per page. You will be expected to make a critical, thoughtful argument about the issue at hand and use historical details and examples to support what you are saying. Given that this is a “take-home,” I expect that the essays are well-written and well-organized (the use of subheadings is strongly recommended). You must cite all your sources according to the APA style guide. Please note that you should not use outside sources for this exam. Students are required to integrate and cite multiple sources from the class (text, articles, podcasts, lectures etc.) Responses should be approximately 2 pages in total (one page per essay), single-spaced.
Women have played a major historical role in reform efforts. Please discuss women’s contribution to reform efforts from the beginnings of the 19th century through the Progressive Era. What factors have contributed to women’s historical involvement in social reform? How did this involvement shift over time? How did prevailing gender norms and ideologies encourage and/or discourage women’s involvement in these efforts? How did gender-based arrangements in work and family life encourage/discourage these efforts? Use historical details to support your claim and cite your sources according to APA expectations.
Please define the following terms: social justice, human rights, and environmental justice. Based on course content, please provide at least one detailed historical examples of social welfare efforts aimed at promoting each of the three terms above (i.e., one detailed example per term). Please explain how your example illustrates/reflects a human rights, social justice and/or environmental justice agenda. Use historical details to support your claim and cite your sources according to APA expectations.
