I have a friend who believes that woman should not become president or any other leader for our country. She believes that woman would let there emotions interfere and it would cause trouble. Although lets look back on the woman’s rights, and suffrage era. They fought many things. They stood up for what they believe in they fought to get where they are today. Did men do that? No. Men got everything handed to them.

On March of 1913, Alice Paul created a woman suffrage parade, because of the lack of  police protection caused an attack on them with no protection. There were not enough police to fight for them, so they had to do it themselves. Tell me, did we let  our emotions get in the way then? Yes, we did. That is what got us where we are today. Many woman,  because of their emotions, are strong willed to fight for what they believe in, and they will push anything in there path.

In 1917, Alice Paul organized 24 hr picketing the white house, for protesting woman’s suffrage outside of the white house, they were arrested. Tell me, is there anything wrong with demonstrating to people what they believe is right? No, there isn’t. They weren’t hurting anybody. Did they give up then? No, they didn’t. They went to the jail. They did a hunger strike, and it doesn’t stop there with the cruelty. They were force-fed many times, causing vomiting, sore throats, and discomfort. They still didn’t give up. They let “their emotions get in the way”.

January 1918 the Susan B. Anthony amendment was passed by the congress. June1919 it was passed by the senate. Leaving us where we are today. Tell me now, are women, like us, weak because they let there emotions get in the way? Or does it make us that much stronger? Look back today, where your at. Would your emotions get in the way if the men got paid more then you, where you work? Would you be insulted if you were told that you couldn’t work somewhere because you were a women? Now tell me again, does this make us stronger or weaker to fight for what we believe in?

If a women became president today, and emotions interfered with what she did, it would only make her stronger and smarter in her decisions. Not stronger or smarter then a man, but just as equal. Look how far women’s leadership has gotten us women today.

What a great point! It's not something I think about often, it just seems to me like it is routine for the president to be male. Women are great leaders, and are amazing leaders in government. Think about it, though. In the state of New Hampshire this year, all of our representatives are women. Our government has made such a change in our political figures.

It's unfair. Everyone has equal rights to share in the world. We can do anything in the world as long as it does not hurt anybody. This is a great point. Women are great leaders and they deserve to be treated the same. Emotions that interfere does not really matter. All of us have rights to make our dreams come true because we are living freedom. I disagree with the idea of women not becoming president.

Very good!!!! I loved your writing. That is really UNFAIR now that you pointed that out. My friends and I have a newspaper we made up. Our school doesn't have a newspaper, so we made our own. You were very persuasive. Good job. ~decipheringautumn13 PS friend me??? anyone??? and do any of you do gymnastics???

i love this essay, but it was so sad where they were force fed though. and its also true that boys are better treated than girls. sometimes. who has at least one class where the girls are all almost perfectly good and then all of a sudden a boy that sits in the back of the class has to ruin it? i hate it when that happens. the 1 one thing that girls in my class get in trouble for is chatting. especially me cus i like to talk but who doesnt?but the boys in my class they get to ruin stuff like going to the kindergardeners play for everyone because they were throwing a footbal around during math. how awful.
