The protests intensified as the women became more aggressive and damaged European colonial property. Colonial arms were ordered to put an end to the riot, this lead to the death of a number of women. This was a successful form of resistance as the protests lead to a number of warrant chiefs resigning and also caused the colonial power to withdraw the new tax that was going to be implemented. This movement was remarkable as it included only women that were armed with their anger and grievances, these protests are great examples of anticolonial and feminist movements against colonial
It was obviously her race that played a part in this tragic event in Hamer’s life. The numerous racial slurs that that Hamer and the other activists were subjected to made it clear that the crime was racially motivated. Her womanhood was stripped of her during this event as well. She was not given the decency of being treated like a lady because of her skin color. If Hamer was a white woman she would not have experienced Winona in the manner that she did, she would not have been subjected to that assault.
The blacks also stated that the constitution was disobeyed since constitutional rights towards them were broken. The 1960s were the highest point of African-American struggle towards equality and many historically important events that changed the course of history for these people took place. The 1950s gave the blacks hope for an improving and better future without being violent. Many groups such as SCLC (Southern Christian Leadership Conference), SNCC (Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee) were formed by the African-Americans including young aged activists in order to peacefully change the situation and circumstances they had to deal with. Yearning for equality and trying to prove it right, African-Americans began to capture the attention of the media.
Hester's change in appearance was looked at negatively by Salem society because they could never understand it's true underlying meaning; that beauty is a board standard determined by society as a whole instead of individually. “The Scarlet Letter had not done its office.” (Wahl) It was presented to Hester as a cruel punishment for bearing a child outside of her marriage. It was meant to humiliate her in public for the rest of her days. The Scarlet Letter was meant to make its victim an outcast of society and instead it empowered Hester and helped her realize the damaging gender standards in her
Despite the beneficial projects Planned Parenthood has participated in, riots have broken out against the facility. According to The Daily Signal, “Students for Life of America organized ‘Women Betrayed’ rallies nationwide to protest taxpayer funding for the nation’s largest abortion provider” (Scanlon). The protests could eventually lead to a decrease in funding for Planned Parenthood. The riots do not only affect the business, they also affect the patients. On June 28, 2014, a six-hour, non-violent protest broke out in front of the Boston Planned Parenthood.
However, sometimes it just is not worth it. For example when she and her husband ran into the police and risked both her husband’s reputation and her marriage just because she wanted justice. If I would have been in her seat during that scene I would have reacted just like her because the way the police officer was treating them crossed all lines. Personally I think that Christine is a hard working woman struggling against the stereotype. I can resemble with her as I myself am a second generation immigrant.
Was it because she was so broken she could not think logically and used whatever she could to somehow avenge herself? Another thing that I could not fathom was, knowing how cruel and dangerous their enemies were, the principal characters seemed unconcerned with their safety, apparently welcoming vulnerability for all the Prestons to exploit take full advantage of. They never learned; Brian pointed a gun at Rafe and yet they continued to consider a killer and rapist in their plan? I could only shake my head in irritation and
Something that the men only brushed off as a joke when the women brought it up. The oppression of women was not at the top of the list in everyday conversation because people did not think it was something that was an everyday occurrence, however, Susan Glaspell changed this when she wrote her short play Trifles. The female characters stand up for Mrs. Wright and defend her from the scrutinizing remarks of their husbands and hide her dead bird that could have been used against her as a motivation in her trial for the murder of her husband. Susan Glaspell uses Trifles, a realist piece, to shows women 's oppression in everyday life, her text is very influential to the women 's movement by showing women they need to unite and stand up for one another. Mrs. Hale and Mrs. Peters are two everyday house wives during the early 1900 's but they do something very special and controversial.
The rest of the civil rights movement started from this boycott and now she is known as the Mother of the Civil Rights Movement. She was tired of being treated differently so she decided to break the law so she could be treated equally. This inspired people and associations to protest and to try to put a stop to these laws. Some people break the law by stealing so they can provide food, clothing, or shelter to themselves or for their family. They might not have jobs and maybe they can’t get one so the only option for them is to steal from the back of restaurants, people, or even from stores so they could be able to protect their families and be able to feed them.
Certain laws are unfair that's why people should protest, Rosa Parks is one of many women who believed she and every other African American should be treated equal. Rosa was tired of being told what to do just because she was a different color so she stood up for herself and refused to move from her seat for a white man, because of her actions she was arrested on December 1, 1955. “Even before Parks's
The biggest shocker wasn 't that I wasn 't able to go, the biggest shocker was that this woman once she heard about my legal status suddenly thought I wasn 't deserving of this opportunity. At that moment I felt dirty my feelings were a mixture of intense anger towards my parents for putting me in this situation I did not agree, disgusted with myself and excluded from everybody else around me. Before this incident I was okay with being an immigrant, but after this I have never been okay with my immigration status because everyday it feels like I’m the one free criminal breaking the law. I think what she was thinking was “This kid is not American, therefore no benefits for her” or something among those lines. To be honest I am not completely sure what her stereotype I just know this has been one of the most traumatic experiences Ive experienced in
