Jasmine Sykes 08/25/2016 2101-248 Fall Western History and Culture One Specific historical example that showed how Americans viewed equally back in the  day was the “separate but equal law”, this law was established in the Plessy V. Ferguson case in  1896. The case was about a young man named Homer Plessy, Homer was of mixed race but his  rights were very limited. Homer explained that his constitutional rights had been violated after he was intentionally forced to move to a colored only car when he was on a train. When this case  was taken to the Supreme Court, they ruled that railway businesses had the right to provide  separate but equal rules for whites and colored people. The ruling established the term separate  but equal. This is how America viewed equality during this time, the fact that someone could be  treated completely different with less rights was argued to be equal to someone who had more  privilege. The idea that separate but equal was even considered is completely insane, the idea of  equally is that everyone has an equal opportunity and that everyone, regardless of race has rights  and freedom to live their own life.  Another historical example of “equality’ in American history is the rights that women  th had back in the 20  century and earlier. An advocate for women’s rights –Susan B Anthony  fought for the right for women to vote in the 1800’s. During the 1800’s women did not have the  equal right to vote like men did, somehow this was okay to Americans but women did not settle  for this, they fought for their right to vote. Not only were women not allowed to vote but African Americans did not have that right as well. Susan B Anthony demanded that the fourteenth  amendment would allow women and African Americans to vote. During this time between the  1800’s and 1900’s women also fought for equal opportunities in economic and political reforms.  Women fought for their right to work as well, between 1880 and 1910 the amounts of women in  the work place drastically increased. Women and African Americans were slowly exercising  their rights for equally in this nation. The idea that ‘all men are created equal’ wasn’t clearly  understood since America’s history is filled with American people fighting for equal rights in  society; and they continue to fight today.  Today in the twenty first century it is pretty clear that America has come a long way  considering the idea of equality. Even after all these centuries of fighting for equality is it true  that everyone is considered “equal”? Today in 2016 the average women makes less than a man in the work force. The idea that women make less than men has been the topic of conversation for  years, why hasn’t anything changed? Even though there are more and more women in political  offices and are holding powerful positions they are still outnumbered and the opportunity is very  limited. Men have always been known as the dominant being which held women to a lower  standard than men. The phrase “All men are created equal” doesn’t mean much when it isn’t  applied to everyone the way it should be. If all men are created equal then all men and women  should be treated equally regardless of gender, race, or sexual orientation.
