As many of you all know, women are now able to vote legally. There are many things that led up to this accomplishment in our history. Along with now being able to vote women are changing their views on society, not only have they changed their views but have changed others views on women as a whole. Women have gained the confidence to be who they want to be instead of being who the society wants them to be. These drastic changes are unbelievable and are changing fast! I think it is a great accomplishment for women to show the world that we can be individuals and be equal. In order to achieve the rights to vote women have had to stand up for themselves more than ever. Due to the WW1 women were needed to fill job positions while the men were at war. They did many of the things that were supposed to be filled by men during this time. Women have seen that not only are they able to do the jobs that men can do they can do them the same if not better. Women have now been taken more seriously. Some women have even put themselves to work taking care of wounded military men. Women have found their real place in society. After getting the right to vote women have begun to express themselves in ways never before seen. Women have started to dress in short shirts and clothes that reveal more skin that allowed and respected by society. Women have begun to cut their hair short and cover it up with hats. They have now abandoned the corset to show off their real body shape. Women now wear makeup to impress others. These women have begun to express themselves through dancing and music like Jazz. Women have showed that they can take care of themselves in society. Women have claimed their place in society finally after so much time. Showing that they have changed society’s view on them shows they have some power behind them as well. Not only have women gained the right to vote but they have gained the right to express themselves with what they wear and how they present themselves. Women no longer live up to the standards of society and how men expect they live for themselves.
