HIS FPX 1150 Assessment 2 Historical Analysis


Identify the argument or the problem that needs to be solved. Questions should be asked to acquire a deep understanding of the problem.

What is the question you need to answer in your presentation? 

Women especially in the US raise many of the same concerns as the founders of the suffrage movement. Although some of the issues regarding women’s rights have been resolved, many of them are still persistent to this day (Shemberger, 2022)

What are some focused questions you can ask to understand the topic better? Include at least two questions.

Are men and women being treated equally in the workplace? Are the opportunities and perceptions regarding women improved?

Are women being given significant positions in making public policies? What is the role of today’s women in the United States’ current politics? 

 What would be the scenario regarding women’s rights if the leaders at the time of the suffrage movement were present today?


What have you learned about your topic in present-day America so far?

Women face the same challenges in some parts of the United States regarding the general perception and acceptance of women as working individuals. Work-family balance is an issue for American women in particular and non-American women in general (Vasumathi, 2018).

What have you learned about your historical issues and the context in which they occurred that can help you better understand that same issue today?

I believe there is a lot of pressure on married women with children in managing their family and work lives. Women are expected to be perfect wives and mothers and it is difficult for women to maintain such a persona given the hectic and challenging routine of demanding jobs. There is a need to understand the struggles women go through on daily basis and men should try to be supportive and encouraging to both housewives and working wives (Alsos et al., 2016).

What facts or evidence will you use to help inform your presentation to your nonprofit group?

I will provide websites and blogs like Hollaback, INCITE, Amnesty International Women’s rights, and Justice Now to present my case. 

What evidence is missing? Where might you find it?

I want to correlate the struggles of 18th and 19th-century women to current women in the United States. In order to do that I need to research further into the lives of women in those eras. How did they live? What were their aspirations? How did they survive the horrific consequences of war and poverty? And if men in those times supported them? After thorough research, I found multiple studies regarding the struggles of women during the 18th and 19th centuries, out of which Williams et al. (2004) have provided significant data supporting the claim.

Build a linkage between the information and resources. Using the information above, answer the following questions:

Are there any links or similarities you see in your sources of information? What are they?

The language and tone sound homogeneous in the past. Google as an encyclopedia is doing a fantastic job of keeping the information. History Channel has also some great documentaries regarding the history of women’s rights and its impact on women. (Chiu, 2012).

Are there any discrepancies?

I have found no discrepancies or contradictions in the resources I shared and extracted information from.


Analyze to identify the situation or issue, the strong points, the weak points, and the challenges faced while solving the problem.

What are your vital pieces of evidence?

The perception that women are unable to balance both domestic and professional duties is a crucial piece of evidence. Study shows that in today’s demanding world both men and women are experiencing work-life imbalance (Doble & Supriya, 2010)

What are your weak pieces of evidence?

Weak pieces of evidence are unpaid reviews, unauthenticated websites and blogs YouTube videos, and other social media data and information that are difficult to authenticate (Sadaf & Siitonen, 2022).

What challenges do you have in using this evidence to make an argument about your issue?

Unfortunately, credible data sources are not easy to find. There is so much fake news circulating on social media and people keep sharing that false and incorrect information which makes things even more complicated. 


Summarize your argument around the issue or situation, and be sure to include the main ideas that need to be communicated to your group. Make sure you answer the question you identified in Step 1 of this worksheet.


Women are still facing many challenges on both domestic and professional fronts. Women are still viewed as inept individuals who will crumble under the pressure. This makes it difficult for women to compete against men in the professional domain. We should understand and recognize the difficulties and challenges women have to go through and support them to make things easy for them.
