write an essay which answers the question, “Has the single story of women changed since pre-suffrage (Stanton’s time)? Why or why not?” Explore the traditional roles of women that are present in our unit’s texts, and make an argument for how/if women’s roles have changed and if/how women’s rights have now been granted.

Background:

Elizabeth Cady Stanton’s “Declaration of Sentiments and Resolutions” (1848) outlines the “platform for the women’s rights movement.” Susan Glaspell’s Trifles (1916) is a play that argues for female solidarity and debuted in theaters just four years before women earned the right to vote with the ratification of the nineteenth amendment. Her text explores the perception of Mr. and Mrs. Wright’s marriage, as well as Mrs. Wright’s individual happiness. She is the main suspect in her husband’s murder, and the audience witnesses the interaction between the male investigators and their wives and who ultimately solves the crime. Hidden Figures (2016 but about events in the 1960s) is a contemporary film about African-American women who were paramount in NASA’s early space program in the 1960s. It follows three different women, an engineer, a programmer, and a physicist/mathematician and reveals the direct role they played in a successful space mission, stories that have been untold until now. Judy Brady’s “I want a Wife” (1971) outlines the duties of a traditional wife and argues that she would love to have a wife who follows these prescriptions. After all, who wouldn’t, she says. “Woman Hollering Creek” (1991) by Sandra Cisneros delves into the troublesome and abusive relationship between husband and wife and echoes the urban legend of La Llorona (crying woman), a woman who drowns her children in a river when she finds out that her husband has been unfaithful, and then proceeds to drown herself. The ghost of La Llorona then mourns her loss by crying and looking for her children. Cisneros’s story, however, revises this tale by adding an element of female solidarity and empowerment. The river in the story means something quite different than it does in the folk tale.
