Description
Chantz Delgado In  No Turning Back    , Estelle B. Freedman converses a lot about the rights and  works of women. Although all of the negatives due to capitalism and the society are  against women, they used it as proof of an unjust culture. Under the new and improved  capitalist government, women were able to write, organize, and basically, act like men.   According to the prior definition of the middle­class woman, they were not able to work  and were severely dependent on their husbands. However, the definition reached new  lengths when education and labor became equal for both genders.   According to the Penguin Atlas of Women in the World and the Convention on  the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women, which was implemented  in 1979 and finalized in 1981, it institutes a universal set of ideals and values that are  projected to serve as a template for determining national policies towards long­term goals  of eradicating gender discrimination. The Gender Development Index displays the many  countries that were successful in equal gender development.  Declaration of Sentiments and Resolutions of Seneca Falls was implemented at a  convention of 19  century suffragists to contemplate the values of women. Elizabeth  Cady Stanton, Lucretia Mott and other important figures based their document of the  reclaimed Declaration of Independence.  In “Women’s Lives,” Lorber discusses some of  the common norms of daily life that is considered gendering. She uses multiple stories of  events or occasions that people assume things based off materialistic matters and  automatically falsely state a gender. Lorber states that g
