Men in the Constitution

The definition for "men" is:
adult male person, as distinguished from a boy or a woman.

When most people think about the Constitution they think about the document that binds our country together. They think about the framers that made it, and the people through with it. In reality, the constitution was written by men, carried out by men, and decided by men. Men were the main contents of the Constitution and they are the ones that are really connected to it. Women were not included in anything, the process of creating or carrying it out, until 1981 when Sandra Day O'Connor was nominated into the supreme court as the first women to serve. Before that men were the only contributing factors in the decisions, not to mention that most were white men. Our country is getting more diverse in its decisions and it is including more than one sex and race but America still has a long way to come. Even thought the field of politics is primarily men, women are making their way onto the scene, but there still hasn't been a women president even if we did get close in 2008.

This image represents the men in the Constitution because it shows all the men signing the Constitution. In this picture it shows how all the framers were white men and that these men designed the rules of America.

“Society as a whole benefits immeasurably from a climate in which all persons, regardless of race or gender, may have the opportunity to earn respect, responsibility, advancement and remuneration based on ability.”
- Sandra Day O’Connor
