Rape in the Fields documentary was very heartbreaking, although I was not surprised. Through out this course I have learned what women are subjected to at their jobs and it brought me back to the previous movie we had watched, North Country. The two movies were very similar in the fact that women face harassment while at work, although rape in the fields case did not get the justice they deserved. This film shows human rights violations against illegal immigrant women in the farm fields. The Rape in the Fields has been at the forefront of dialogue to further investigate the sexual crimes migrant women must endure in the agricultural industry.
It is bizarre that only 50 years ago a woman's sole purpose and responsibility was to care for her children and tend to the needs of the home. In the early 1960's, to think a woman could contribute to society in the same way men could was a ludicrous idea. It was unorthodox for women to receive an education. Imagining women holding high positions in society while still managing to take care of the motherhood duties was inconceivable. Today, many women are relied on for holding some of the most successful job positions in the country.

Lastly, the third reason why I believe this article should be published in The Shorthorn is because of its overall message.
Patrick Holt English 802 Joshua Lukin Temple University 1/25/16 The debate about how to help young boys perform better in school is anything but simple. There are many different views and opinions on the matter. Some believe that it is very feminine environment that boys are introduced to in the classroom and making the classroom more appealing to boys is the best solution. This view is championed by the article How Boys Learn, written by Michael Gurian and Kathy Stevens.
The above picture is a digital photo of the Tetons and the “Snake River” by Ansel Adams. The river is shaped in a curved motion streaming of water with a background view of clouds. The experience I am viewing is not very clear in color and the picture is blurry.
Brent Staple’s essay "Why Colleges Shower Their Students with A's" had various elements that helped provided evidence and persuade the readers. The first thing I noticed when reading this essay was the comparison between the marketplace and college. This comparison helps to develop Staple’s argument because it explains something that is unfamiliar by comparing it to something that is more familiar. I can assume that the target readers were business men and women. Since I am unfamiliar with some business terms, I found that this essay explained something that was unfamiliar with something else that was unfamiliar.
This instruction comes directly from the Bible, and in essence, solidifies the belief that women should be subordinate to their husbands. This idea was to be carried on for centuries later, until at least the 1800s, where women were finally afforded certain rights with the emergence of the Women’s Movement in 1848. The Movement is a political and social movement that sought for the equal rights and opportunities for men and women in areas such as politics, economics, and especially in areas such as their personal lives (Burkett, 2015). It also gave rise to the ideology of feminism and a second-wave movement of feminism in the latter part of the second half of the 20th century.

Everyone has thought about what a perfect world would look like. The beauty and the happyness that you would see every day. The thing is that there is no such thing as perfect world.

I have always admired and played with trains as a child. The trains I had as gifts at Christmas were not the fancy battery operated ones. These were the manual kid powered trains one might push around the track and watch it go. However, I did experience playing with expensive train sets. There would be feet and feet of track for the train to run on.
