Conclusion

When we first started this project, our group was mainly thinking about Women’s voting rights. We didn’t think about going in any further detail or expanding out research. As we started doing this, I found that we couldn’t be as creative or passionate about it as we could be. I wanted to go outside of […]

Conclusion

When I started this project, I thought it would only be about women’s voting rights. Now that I have done the project, my partners and I made it about civil rights around the world. Meaning things like the right to education, with Malala’s story. Also like the end of the socialist pyramid that America is […]

Conclusion

We started with this project by looking through a couple of questions about some pictures. This has turned into so much more then a couple of questions about a picture. I started thinking about my topic when we learned about the industrial revolution and how women started taking charge and once I realized I could […]

Gay Rights

Gay rights to this day has become a constant battle between whether Gay marriage should be legal or not, or if being gay is right. I believe though that the only reason people think that they are gay is because of sexism and discrimination. I have talked about this a little in another post but […]

Our society is constantly putting different sports, jobs, hobbies, etc. into categories of what is for women and what is for men. […]

Jennifer’s Perspective about Women’s Suffrage

As I researched the Women’s Suffrage, I figured out that, there is more to it then what is in the information. As I though about how women were protesting for their own rights, I thought how hard it must have been to live their lives. I though about how I get to come to school […]

Freedom From Sufferage

“Photo, Print, Drawing Mary Winsor (Penn.) ’17 [holding Suffrage Prisoners Banner].” Mary Winsor (Penn.) ’17 [holding Suffrage Prisoners Banner]. Library of Congress, n.d. Web. 13 Feb. 2014.

2014 Dangers of Protesting

In today’s age, what looks like a perfect world to me is no where near perfect once I started researching about protesting dangers. “First and foremost is police brutality. Regardless of who’s right or wrong that’s not going to end well for anyone.” This comment from The Wise Sloth is one of the many dangers of […]

Sophia’s Perspective on Inequality

I believe that everyone is created equal and has something special about them. Whether it’s their gender, race, beliefs, appearance…etc, there is no difference.  No one was created the same, every person is unique and has a special purpose. People discriminate against others because they want them to live up to the standard or “normal” […]
