        Compare and Contrast the extent to which the French revolution 1789-1799 and the Russian
         revolution 1917-1924 changed the status of women.
             o Thesis Statement: Revolutions in both France and Russia presented new opportunities
                 for women, however, only Russia retained these benefits.
        3 Groups:
             o Roles in the Household
                      Russia – Women were not confined to household chores with the advent of
                        Leninist ideals.
                      France – Women were confined to the household, even though they were active
                        participants in the French Revolution

                      Russia – Women were allowed to work as soldiers, and they held various
                      France – Women were still seen as the caretakers to the household.
             o Subjugation by the Government
                      Russia – Lenin believed in equal rights for both man and women, therefore
                        Russian women retained their rights even after the revolution had subsided.
                      France – Women succeeded in passing the Declaration of the Rights of Women
                        in 1791. Modeled after the Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen,
                        this document temporarily gave many rights to women, but after the revolution
                        had subsided, the document was disclaimed by the new governing body.
        Notes:
             o France:
                      Declaration of the Rights of Women (1791) – not fully realized and disregarded
                              Based off of Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen
                      Emergence of Salons – similar to the exclusive clubs for men
                      Women began to meet publicly in cafes

                              Attack on the Bastille
                              March on Versailles
                      Women are confined – for the most part – to household work
                      Overall – not much changed
             o Russia
                      Women became soldiers for the first time
                      Lenin wanted absolutely equal rights for both men and women
                      Women are allowed to work
                              Changed from household work
   Analyze the ways in which technology and mass culture contributed to the success of dictators
    in the 1920s and 1930s.
         o Thesis Statement: Successfully dictators used new technologies like film and radios to
            incite movements in nationalism.
   3 Groups:
         o Anti-Semitism
                  Hitler’s use of the Radio contributed to Anti-Semitic feelings in Germany
         o Nationalism
                  Mussolini controlled the airwaves to spread a feeling of nationalism across Italy
                    during WWII.
                  Hitler used the Radio to relay his speeches, which in turn sprouted firm

                  Hitler’s The Triumph of the Will was a movie that was meant to spread Nazi
                    nationalism across Germany
         o Movies
                  Lenin believed motion pictures were essential to the social and ideological
                    transformation of the country.
                  Lenin used motion pictures to spread communistic beliefs.
   Notes:
         o Radio is used for mass propaganda by dictators like Hitler and Mussolini
         o Motion Pictures are used to spread ideas indirectly, unlike directly speaking to
            audiences with the radio like Hitler had done.
         o 3 out of every 4 households have a radio in Great Britain

        o Thesis Statement: While occurrences like the ideological Cold War and the conflict

                         Incites mistrust between European countries
                         Antagonizes communist
                Arms Race
                         Atom Bomb dropping during WWII causes this race to have the bigger

                            market almost as large as that of the United States.
                         Successful because it encouraged companies and regions to specialize in
                            what they did best
