Bonjour à tous, je sais qu'il y a une page d'aide au devoir mais cette page bug et je n'arrive pas à m'y connecter donc je poste cela ici et je m'en excuse si c'est mal.
J'ai terminée ma notion (je suis en L) sur Idea of progress et j'aurai aimer vos avis et vos commentaires sur ma notion car je vise l'excellence en langue vu que je vais tres certainement rater la philo coef 7 et le droit coef 4 donc je veux cartonner partout ailleurs afin de me rattraper.. Merci d'avance pour vos avis.

I’m going to talk about the notion idea of progress.
First of all, let me define the notion.
The idea of progress can be defined as an improvement, a development or a change. A technical, scientific or social advance which contributes to making the world a better place. Here, we will study it from a social point of view. Social progress is when the quality of life changes ( from a positive point of view). It can be in the field of education, human rights, science or for example. Today we are going to talk about social evolution, in terms of gender parity.
So we can ask ourselves : in what sense can women's rights be considered as form of progress ?
To answer at this question we are going to study different documents which deal with this notion.

The first document is an extract of the movie Suffragette by Sarah Gavon dating back to 2015. This drama tracks the story of the women of the early feminist movement. This movie explain us how women fought and get the right to vote. Indeed, before the end of the nineteenth century, women were “dominated” by men, and it was normal for everyone. But since this period, women want equality. Then, in 1903, Emmeline Pankhurst and her daughters created the WSPU, the Women's Social and Political Union, also named Suffragette, to defend rights of women. In this extract, we see the leader of the suffragette movement ; Emmeline Pankhurst. She say that women have protested peacefully for the vote for 50 years but they have been “ ridiculed, battered and ignored”. She also said that the male establishment has not taken them seriously. So, she and the WSPU advocated deeds not words from 1912, in order to attract more attention to their cause, because even if they had protested peacefully, they were treated violently by the authorities. For their participation in the suffragettes demonstrations, women were beaten and mistreated as they were arrested. They also were imprisoned. Another punishment was to separate the women from their children. In effect, the men in power used all the means at their disposal to try and break the women’s resolve…
Yet, the men didn’t win and in 1918 women in the UK obtained the right to vote.

So women contribute to a social advance, because there were big inequalities between women and men, and women fought to get equality, and even when that didn't work, they continued, and they made sacrifices, until they got what they wanted. At the beginning of the twentieth century, women were defined socially only by their place in family. They are nothing more than mothers, girls and wives. However, their determination and sacrifices to acquire the right to vote as the man already hold have shown that they are much more than that. If I chose this first document to answer my problematic it is that it shows well the progression of the women’s right, their fight to arrive there and the sacrifices which they had to carry out because at the time the women do not possessed no rights. However gradually they acquires thanks to their fights more and more rights .

The second document that I have chosen is a speech that Emma Watson gave to the United Nations in New York in September 2014. She was invited to launch a new campaign for gender equality, the HeForShe campaign. The aim of this campaign is to stop discrimination against men and women and to allow men and women to transcend the stereotypes that are often applied to them. In her speech, Emma Watson says that the problem is that feminism is often taken to mean anti-men. In reality, feminism is about equality for everyone it is not about the superiority of either gender. When she was growing up, the media sexualized her because she was a girl and society criticized her and her friends if they tried to be assertive or look strong.
However, she also saw that her male friends were also imprisoned by gender stereotype and not allowed to express their emotion because of the gender stereotype “Boys don’t cry”. The word feminism is associated with a lot of negatives words like “too strong”, “too aggressive”, “anti-men”, “unattractive”. But, Emma Watson wants to challenge this and to challenge the gender stereotypes that still exist.
So, being a feminist means : Equal pay, women involved in politics, women’s right to make decisions about their bodies, same respect for men and women.
In effect, despite the fact that women have the vote, can do many differents jobs and are protected by differents laws, there is NO country in the world in which men and women are COMPLETELY equal !

Discrimination still exists today. For example in some countries, girls are not loved as much as boys. In some societies, girls are limited educationally. In many societies there are still professional limits…
Indeed, there have been a few changes in recent years. But Hillary Clinton gave a speech about feminism in 1995 but many of the problems that she talked about still exist today ! The explanation is that the majority of Clinton’s audience was female. Emma Watson believes that men have felt excluded from the feminist debate. In effect, she wants us to include them because they are victims of gender stereotypes too. Some example of them : Fathers are less valued than mothers by society, men have to appear “macho” and successful…

So, this document show us that in effect, feminism has evolved through time but that there is still progress to make for men and women to be equal. And that's why I chose this document, because although many progress has been made there is still a lot of progress to be made so that the woman can be completely equal to the man

To conclude, women right can be considered as a form of progress because through the time, women have acquired many rights and their place in society has continued to evolve over time and this is what we call "progress". Nowadays there is still a lot of progress to be made so that the woman is completely equal to the man because the society is still dominated by many stereotypes. Simply in staying in the theme of gender inequalities, we notice many inequalities for women, but there are also inequalities for men, like the fact that a man living on his own cannot adopt a child contrary to a woman. The right of women can be considered as a form of progress because, year after year, women continue to acquire new rights. However in my opinion all this progression must be only the beginning because women are still far from being equal to the men. For example, a woman who do the same work as a man and who works the same number of hours will be paid less than the man and I find this simply unacceptable. I wonder if women will ever be equal to men...
