Ward’s intention for creating such a book to not only explain the significance of the Laveau’s in New Orleans Voodoo History but to also educate the mainstream American audience about the alternative narrative regarding this religion. Because of the author’s personal admiration for the city of New Orleans, by way of the Laveau’s biographies, she is able to convey the rich culture that has been built on and around creole culture. In the introduction specifically, Ward explains she has been confronted with questions by her peers that discuss voodoo in a negative light, such as: “Isn’t Voodoo dangerous? What happens to you if you tell its secrets?” Ward accomplished her goal demystifying the religion by explaining the significance behind its rituals and traditions that have often been misinterpreted by popular culture and used to demonize voodoo as a whole. Specially, Ward chose to highlight how the Laveaus were heroines of New Orlean’s for saving countless lives from the diseases rapturing the city as well as spearheading anti-slavery movements.
"we need to be suspicious when neat cultural icons are plastered over messier historical and political narratives, so we need to be wary when lord Cromer in British-ruled Egypt, French ladies in Algeria, and laura bush, all with military troops behind them, claim to be saving or liberating Muslim women."

It is in this way that the sexist medical practices perceived in modern practices oppress women, demeaning them and making their problems seem lesser than they are. Comparatively, R. Levinson’s Sexism in medicine (1976) discusses the major implications that sexism within medical practices can have. One large example of this can be found in the practice of victim blaming. Most notable examples of this fall under the blaming of rape victims for the crime committed but can also be found, in less obvious terms, for any woman. Women seeking help in the medical field often feel ignored or ridiculed for seeking help, feeling as if they are
The two goals from our course that I selected are goal 5 ( Gender Equality ) and goal 9 ( Industry, innovation, and innovative forms). Goal 5 talks about , achieving gender equality and empower all women and girls to have the same rights as men and boys. Goal 9 talks about building resilient ( strong ) infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster or rare innovation. In Rome and Carthage we can relate the GSDG , to the goals 9 and 5. In Rome gender equality was not present and must have been achieved, because for example girls could not rule kingdoms or have kids since they were girl priests.
In the ethnographic documentary “Fire Eyes,” director Soraya Mire presented a biased opinion on the nature of female circumcision by emphasizing graphic content like gore and pain. While Mire’s documentary presents the terrifying nature of female circumcision, the use of graphic content and imagery successfully conveys Mire’s strong opinion opposing female circumcision. However, Mire neglects to discuss the cultural values behind the mutilation and instead prioritizes how she views the act as unethical. The importance in conveying the horrifying nature of female circumcision through graphic content evokes emotional responses in the audience and easily persuades the audience to follow the director’s own beliefs. In the movie “Fire Eyes,” Soraya Mire creates a personal connection with the audience by choosing to showcase bloody, painful responses rather than solely focusing on multiple retellings of women who experienced circumcision.
Chicana’s experienced machismo within the Chicano Movement because they were seen useful only to perform sexual activities or support the men. The third issue women dealt with was wanting to have access to free and safe abortions, free child care, and birth control. Chicana feminist’s challenged sexism and cultural nationalism by writing
Women in the ancient world had no voice or opinion to share to others and were considered as inferior to men. Back then men were encouraged superiority by looking down upon women. Later on women started to gain some of their right and New Zealand became the first country to grant women the right to vote in 1893. In the present-day almost all the women have the right to vote, yet there is still progress to be made for women in politics. Sexism has changed over the years but sexism has never stopped existing and it still exists today and it is very noticeable from the media, press, work, life styles and in society.
Misogynistic ideas have been a huge problem in U.S history and other parts of the world. Misogyny can be defined as “A hatred of women” according to the Merriam Webster Dictionary. Not only does misogyny exist today, but it’s motivating sexism as well. Why do these ideas continue to exist and who or what is fueling these ideas? A documentary called Generation Me: Misogyny in Media and Culture explains how misogynistic ideas and sexism is represented in our media and culture.
A surrogate is a substitute; a person deputizing for another in a specific role or office, according to dictionary.reference.com. In the terms of motherhood, surrogate mothers are women who get paid to carry and deliver babies for people who cannot conceive children, otherwise known as commercial surrogacy. Many people who want to get children out of the process of surrogacy are homosexual couples, or couples that can not have children. But, most countries have banned surrogacy. Surrogacy should not be banned.

The women did not want it to die. They were going to fight for what they wanted. Susan B. Anthony was inspired to start helping women earn this right through many things. She first got the idea to help the women when she was campaigning to ban alcohol. Because she was a woman, no one from the conferences would let her speak, as women were not allowed to speak at the conferences.
Former late- term abortion clinic workers stated that approximately 50% of 3rd trimester abortions are performed on healthy babies. In my opinion it seems that doctors quite often reffered women to late term abortion providers who were pregnant with healthy babies, but they wanted the abortion because they had either broken up with the baby 's father, lost their job, or something similar. Women have right s to do a late term abortion or any abortion at that. During one of the Presedential debate between the two campaigns Hilailary Clinton and Donald Trumph had debated about late term abortions. Donald Trumph had presented a irrelevant view of abortion in the United States and had misled his interpretation of Hilary 's position on late term abortions.
So her desire to create a team to offer women, who she saw as trapped within the patriarchy, was understandable. She saw that women were conditioned to believe there was nothing wrong with their life and as such “they had to be made aware of how they were being shackled [by society], and roused to mutiny” (Shaw 38) to gain any rights. Planned Parenthood was a major step in the right direction for the Women’s Rights movement, removing it and its services that gave women so much freedom would destroy any progress
