Within thirty-nine years, from 1964 until 2003, there were six eras consisting of King Zahir Shah, Mohammad Daoud Khan’s Republic, communist rule, mujahideen’s conflict after the Soviet troops left, the arrival of the Taliban, and the presidency of Hamid Karzai. In the novel A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini, politics play an important role in women’s rights. It began with King Zahir Shah and Najibullah, with rights that allowed women education and career; later the Taliban took over and ended freedom in women; ending with the Taliban’s surrender following 9/11, again allowing women more rights. Mariam and Laila were affected mostly negatively by the political rules put into place regarding women.
A recent federal lawsuit has been filed by the American Civil Liberties Union’s (ACLU) challenging the constitutionality of three provisions of the Setonia’s Abortion Laws. The three provisions ACLU are challenging are as follows (McCauliff): • Law which prevents state health officials from renewing or issuing licenses to abortion clinics located with 2000 feet of an elementary school (McCauliff). • Law which requires physicians performing abortions to complete 10 hours annually of continuing medical education on abortion procedures (McCauliff). • Law which requires abortion providers to give every patient a copy of her medical records, regardless of whether the patient requests such records (McCauliff).
I read the book, “Contraception and Abortion in 19th-Century America” by Janet Farrell Brodie. She teaches history at Claremont Graduate School and is the Program Coordinator at the Claremont Graduate Humanities Center. Brodie’s choice of interests is in the 19th-20th century American history. During this time, many looked up to her, because of her careful research of contraception and abortion information and the practices in the 19th century. Brodie reached an achievement of modifying our sense of reproduction control.
After realizing she did not want to do this, she went to the New York School of Philanthropy, but she soon realized that she did not enjoy this either. Eight years later she went to the University of Washington, where she joined the state suffrage organization (History). She had many great accomplishments in life and was an important figure during the 1900s. Jeannette Rankin lived during the time of World War I, the 18th Amendment being ratified, the 19th Amendment being ratified, and World War II.
Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucy Stone (Riegel 495). Lucy Stone is an important figure to the Woman’s Rights Movement who brought to light the issue of domestic violence in the United States. Stone and her husband made several efforts through legislation and the Woman’s Journal to promote women as citizens instead of property. Stone was the first in the United States to introduce legislation supporting divorce in cases of domestic abuse. The proposed bill granted to assaulted wife a legal separation, custody of the children and economic support from the husband.
She began writing and publishing as a teenager eventually achieving national fame for her 1945 collection “A Street In Bronzeville”, she was a postwar poet. She wrote during the Civil Rights activism period. Gwendolyn Brooks wrote thirty-nine poems and they were mostly about Racism, Feminism, and the struggles and celebrations of ordinary people from her own community.

Most abortion arguments discussed today revolve around the premise that a fetus is a human being at conception. In Judith Thomson’s essay, “A Defense to Abortion”, she argues on the topic of abortions. She defends the mother’s right to choose what happens to her body on the assumption that a baby becomes a human at conception. In the argument, she gives the famous Violinist analogy. I will argue in this essay that her argumentative analogy is not sound because of the difference in social importance.
The WPP became the Women 's International League for Peace and Freedom in 1919, and in recognition of her work, Addams was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1931 (Gumery, Keith). For these efforts she shared the 1931 Nobel Peace Prize with Nicholas Murray Butler, a prominent educator and longtime president of Columbia University in New York City ("Addams, Jane").

Sanger’s movement was a stepping stone for many societal advances. “Sanger established the American Birth Control League, a precursor to Planned Parenthood Federation of America and served as its president... Sanger started the National Committee of Federal Legislation for Birth Control” (“Margaret Sanger”). In her lifetime, Sanger got to see progress of women’s reproductive rights in America. Many laws have changed in order to accommodate the things she was working for.
She was a feminist formed the term “birth control.” This is the devise help to prevent the pregnant. She try to promote the women’s rights and hope women to protect their own body and decided to give a birth control. Birth control changed a lot of women because they can consider weather they want a child or not. Sanger later founded the American Birth Control League.
Abortion serves as an alternative to those who face the highest costs of bearing and raising children like young women who have not finished school yet, couples who face the expectation of a child that will have severe physical complications, contraceptive failure, and those who are poor or are not able to afford children, especially, in the event that these children will be raised by a single parent. Abortion as a legal business emerged following the Supreme Court’s, Roe v. Wade, decision to constitutionalize abortion in 1973. Since the Supreme Court ruling of Roe v. Wade, the market for abortion has become an important part of America’s economy. For years following those decisions, abortion opponents have attacked patients, passing laws that restrict abortion access. Some of those laws include: requiring parental involvement in a minor’s decision to have an
I will argue that abortion is wrong and shouldn’t be allowed. I am then considered pro-life. To help support me I could use information from the Roe Vs. Wade Abortion court case in 1973. Abortion is an issue because you are taking an innocent fetuses life.
You mentioned that mostly half of women of color received all the legal abortions. I just want to add some statistic that Davis explains on her article. During several years preceding the decriminalization of abortions in New York state, 80% of the illegal abortions were involved Black and Puerto Rican women. Also, just you said, immediately afterward, women of color received about 50% of the legal abortions. This is not because they have more freedom or reproductive rights than the white women, but it rather shows how miserable living and working condition they were in.
