Everyone in the U.S. has to be a legal citizen, and the States cannot deprive you from your rights, or make and enforce laws that aid the immunities of the citizen(s). The States and the U.S. cannot aid anyone monetarily or be obligated to anyone who is trying to rebel or against the United States. Any deal of the sort should be held as illegal and unconstitutional. The 19th Amendment states, “The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex.” This amendment came about after WWI. Activist such as Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton raised awareness about equal rights for women during this time.
As well as the colonists did citizen participation, they did equality terribly. Most people in the colonies, including women, slaves and muslims, were not treated as equals by white, Christian males. Also, there were tons of slaves, and slaves are not treated as equals. In colonial America, “...slavery existed in all thirteen colonies...” and slaves “...had no legal rights...”(Document: 5 Plan of a Slave Ship). One defining feature of democracy is that all people are equals, and America was certainly not displaying that at all.
After all, our Founding Fathers did not belong here either. They migrated from a different country to get away from what was wrong where they were. They took over the land from previous settlers whom were here far before they "found" America.A citizen is a person who lives somewhere permanently or on a long-term basis. Although people will not believe that illegal immigrants don’t have any type of rights, they do. In section one of the Constitution it states: "No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."
The very Constitution declares that when a government no longer has the safety and rights of their people in mind, then the people should take it upon themselves to abolish it, but women did not have a vote to exercise this right. Similarly, in their article, “Teaching the New Departure: The United States vs. Susan B. Anthony” Kathi Kern and Linda Levstik state,“For Anthony and hundreds of other women in the early years of Reconstruction, “taking” their freedom meant exacting their rights at the point where citizenship was “produced”: the polling booth” (Kern and Levstik 123). Voting was and is an essential part of citizenship in the United States,
Looking in from a citizen’s perspective one would think of it as harassment because it’s our amendment right to be able to protest. For Bishop to threaten their safety for not doing anything. but he claims he cares for his city, but what about the people who live in
In Brazil, abortion is legalised under limited occasions, permitting abortion in cases of rape and when it puts a woman’s life in danger. The main concerning issue is that the government has recently introduced a new amendment changing the country’s abortion law, called “Pec 181”. When we thought our country was finally moving forward and putting aside religion and personal beliefs for a matter of equality, this medieval law is announced introducing adjustments banning abortion and again narrowing, ignoring and shutting down the women’s voices. I still cannot wrap my head around the fact that the Brazilian government is trying to control the body of over 100 million women, highlighting the fact that the Brazilian parliament has no women representatives.
One of these factors is the restriction of people’s nature of freedom by cruel authorities through the idea of colonialism. As an enemy of freedom, colonialism determines the decisions and fate of people and forces them to repress their own freedom. To investigate in what way people repress their freedom within a colonial context, we can turn to Albert Camus’s story “The Guest”. Repressing one’s own free choice under the influence of colonialism, can lead to forfeiting his/her freedom since not being able to express one’s true conviction renders his/her morality and self-determination, which is illustrated by Albert Camus’s story “The Guest”. The tension between Arab culture and the French authority as a result of colonialism is palpable in Camus’s story.
Furthermore, it also hampered the culture of the native peoples, on the basis of a doctrine which is inherently and biased and oppressive. However, he seems reluctant to a practice that may or may not be legal or morally justifiable. He is bound to it because it constitutes the custom or practice under which the country has thus far been settled. He reiterates this point by saying “the history of America, from its discovery to the present day, proves, we think the universal recognition of these principles” (pg. 14).

(Wikipedia) In Cuba, citizens do not have access to information and cannot communicate certain ideas or opinions. Not only are they not free but they are not living according to the UN declaration of human rights which in article 19 states that “Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.”.

He decided to confine her to the attic of her/their house; an act that no human, ‘mad’ or sane, should have endured. The effects of colonialism showed just how different being a woman was, all the while the traditional, patriarchy system did nothing but devastate the livelihood of those around her including herself which played a vital role in regards to her torment and ultimately, her death.
