Excerpt from The History of Equal Suffrage in Colorado: 1868-1898 While the measure was pending in the assembly it was also liberally discussed by pulpit, press and people, and from all these sources ridicule and misrepresentation were the answers to truth and serious argument coming from similar sources on the other side of the question, for all elements including the women were divided on the point. By a portion of the clergy it was bitterly assailed and, though not a partisan measure, it was characterized by the Republicans as the Great Democratic Reform. Naturally the Democrats dis avowed partisan paternity to the new measure, and thus political prejudice and apathy became added elements of Opposition.

In the early days on the Colorado frontier, women took care of family and neighbors because accepting that “we’re all in this together” was the only realistic survival strategy—on the high plains, along the Front Range, in the mountain towns, and on the Western Slope. As dangerous occupations became fundamental to Colorado’s economy, if they were injured or got sick there was no one to care for the young men who worked as miners, steel workers, cowboys, and railroad construction workers in remote parts of Colorado. So physicians, surgeons, nurses, Catholic Sisters, Reform and Orthodox Jews, Protestants, and other humanitarians established hospitals and—when Colorado became a mecca for people with tuberculosis—sanatoriums. Those pioneers and the communities they served created our community-based humanitarian healthcare tradition. These stories about our Wild West heritage honor the legacy of our 19th-century healthcare pioneers and will inspire and entertain 21st-century readers. Because we can be inspired only if we understand the facts—and because facts are more likely to be understood when presented in context—this chronology includes national and international developments that establish an indispensable frame of reference for understanding how our pioneers created the local-community-based healthcare system that we’ve inherited.

Women and the Republican Party, 1854-1924

An original and timely examination of women's long history of participating in partisan politics, Women and the Republican Party, 1854-1924 explores the forces that propelled women to partisan activism in an era of widespread disfranchisement and provides a new perspective on how women fashioned their political strategies and identities before and after 1920. Melanie Susan Gustafson examines women's partisan history as part of the larger history of women's political culture. Contesting the accepted notion that women were uninvolved in political parties before they formally got the vote, Gustafson reveals the length and depth of women's partisan activism between the founding of the Republican party, whose abolitionist agenda captured the loyalty of many women, and the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment. Women and the Republican Party, 1854-1924 presents the complex interplay of partisan and nonpartisan activity, the fierce debates among women about the best way to make their influence felt, and the ebb and flow of enthusiasm for women's participation within the Republican party. Gustafson documents the emergence of third parties--in particular the Progressive party, which split off from the Republican party in 1912--that fused the civic world of reform organizations with the electoral world of voting and legislation. She also profiles the leading women Republicans and activists, both familiar (Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Jane Addams, Mary Church Terrell) and less well known (Anna Dickinson, Victoria Woodhull, Judith Ellen Foster, Mary Ann Shadd Cary).

Der Weiblichkeitswahn oder Die Selbstbefreiung der Frau

Ein Emanzipationskonzept

Author: Betty Friedan

Publisher: Rowohlt Verlag GmbH

ISBN: 3688100425

Category: Social Science

Page: 282

Der Titel dieses heftig umstrittenen Bestsellers ist in die Umgangssprache eingegangen. Weiblichkeitswahn – das ist die von mächtigen wirtschaftlichen Interessengruppen manipulierte Umkehrung der Frauenemanzipation. Die Frau wird durch psychologische Dauerbeeinflussung in der Werbung und in den Massenmedien zur «glücklichen Hausfrau und Mutter» umfunktioniert, wird als kaufkräftige Konsumentin umschmeichelt und auf ein Sexualsymbol mit Warencharakter reduziert. Betty Friedan führt ein erdrückendes Beweismaterial ins Feld gegen das entstellte Image des weiblichen Wesens in unserer Zivilisation. Die Autorin zeigt allerdings auch Wege, auf denen die moderne Frau trotz aller Widerstände ihren eigenen Glücksansprüchen und denen der Familie gerecht werden kann. Dieses Werk einer intelligenten und temperamentvollen Frau über die Frau sollte auch Pflichtlektüre für Männer sein.

Das berühmte Standardwerk von Simone de Beauvoir. Die universelle Standortbestimmung der Frau, die aus jahrtausendealter Abhängigkeit von männlicher Vorherrschaft ausgebrochen ist, hat nichts an Gültigkeit eingebüßt. Die Scharfsichtigkeit der grundlegenden Analyse tritt in der Neuübersetzung noch deutlicher hervor.

„Keinem vernünftigen Menschen wird es einfallen, Tintenflecken mit Tinte, Ölflecken mit Öl wegwaschen zu wollen. Nur Blut soll immer wieder mit Blut abgewaschen werden.“ „Die Waffen nieder!“ gehört zweifellos zu den wichtigsten pazifistischen Schriften des 19. Jahrhunderts und löste bereits kurz nach Erscheinen ein gewaltiges Echo aus. Der Roman schildert die packende Geschichte der Baronin Martha Althaus, die im Zuge kriegerischer Auseinandersetzungen tragische Verluste erleidet - und zur überzeugten Pazifistin wird. Die Friedensnobelpreisträgerin Bertha von Suttner protestiert mit diesem Roman gegen das sinnlose Verschwenden von Menschenleben und die menschenverachtenden Grausamkeiten im Krieg.

"Bummel durch Europa" (Original: "A Tramp Abroad") ist ein halb-fiktiver, satirischer Reisebericht des amerikanischen Autors Mark Twain, der erstmals 1880 erschien. Das Buch beschreibt eine Reise von zwei Freunden durch Deutschland, die Alpen und Italien im Jahr 1878. Der Ich-Erzähler ist Mark Twain selbst, der Reisebegleiter seinem Freund Joseph Twichell nachgebildet. Beide Reisenden hatten sich eigentlich vorgenommen, den größten Teil des Weges zu Fuß zurückzulegen, finden dann aber doch ständig andere Möglichkeiten der Fortbewegung. Twain spielt auf dieser Reise den typischen amerikanischen Touristen jener Zeit, der angeblich alles sofort versteht, was er sieht, in Wahrheit aber häufig daneben liegt.
