This proves she is intelligent because to get all A's she needed to work hard at school and pay attention. Another reason for why Lupe is admirable is she won many academic awards. Some of the many awards she has won are spelling bee champ, Winner of the reading contest, and blue ribbon awardee at the science fair. Even in the story, it states ¨Lupe had a razor sharp mind” meaning she is very intelligent.
I had made some friends of my own, but did not feel entirely welcomed by others. I struggled to fit in with the girls and could not figure out why I felt so alienated. I was always nice and friendly so it confused me why I was not accepted. While it was nothing entirely mean, rumors were spread that some of my sorority sisters felt I did not fit because I did not party like they did or because they simply could not see me as their sister. It hurt my self-esteem to hear that the values I cherished were not
Women working wasn 't a topic usually discussed because women weren’t really allowed to voice their opinion on many topics that were important to them. This was seen as off putting and unacceptable. Men basically ruled women, women had to run every idea or opinion by their husband and nine times out of ten it wasn 't even really listened to or acknowledged. In the 60’s the movement came to a head, even so women were still thought to be too emotional for jobs of a man. Women were not taken seriously by men and rarely appreciated, just demeaned and seen as a lesser group of individuals.
And yet its not just a few acres of land or a building or any place in particular that makes a high school. Its basically all the different kinds of people that come together in a place that makes our experience memorable (be it either torture or salvation). Or rather its those little groups or as we know it ‘stereotypical cliques’, that we associate every single one of our classmates with (willingly or not) that we remember the most of our time there, along with where you are in the social hierarchy.
At first i was confused because as a 9 year old with no experience with racism I did not know what was going on. I thought I was doing something wrong but when I asked my mom why all these things were happening she explained that many people in our area were not accustomed to seeing hispanics or people from different races like I was. She told me to ignore the remarks and to try to be a good person so that they could see me for who I really was instead of the race that I was. Some time passed and the racist remarks did not get better, I tried being nice and people still treated me like an outcast. As I grew older I learned that
So sometimes people find themselves after they hit rock bottom, and build themselves back up. That’s what this girl did and here is her story. Throughout high school there are certain cliques, which everyone wants to be a part of one. One girl had a clique of her own where she was happy and comfortable. She has had the same clique for as long as she could remember, and the same best friend.
Kate Winslet posted a photo of herself on Facebook with no make-up on, to urge women to embrace themselves and battle negative body image. Kate wrote on her page, "I know I am chubby, I have big feet, and have bad hair days. When I was growing up and even now, I hardly hear any positive reinforcement about body image from any female. I mostly hear negative feedbacks. But I know, most of the negatives comes from the people who are busy rejoicing over other people ' insults by liking demeaning post on Facebook when in reality they don 't even like themselves."
Women of colour are often met with lack of empathy and ambivalence when coming forth with their stories about sexual assault. A much-publicized case is when Harvey Weinstein quickly refused sexual claims from the coloured actress Lupita N’yongo, while mostly remaining silent when accused by other white females. In addition, the lack of recognition to the true creator of the “Me too” movement: Tarana Burke, has left many African American women resentful. Before the movement became viral through white females’ statements, the movement had actually existed for more than a decade without the same attention. As a result, some African Americans refuse to support an exclusive movement.
“Red Flag” emerged from her conversation with four other women about menstruation and how it is a taboo issue that was never discussed in art or literature. Menstruation is still is a taboo subject, an ignored mark of “otherness” suggesting the inadequacy in women. It is a natural bodily substance and bodily process women go through, so why could it not be discussed with admiration in art? The fetishization of women is acceptable in our society but this image a natural, everyday act is considered obscene and offensive. Red Flag rejects the normative patterns of domination and submission in our social order; women are no longer hiding behind the conventional, yet restricting, veil of
Many of her teachers from Garrison Middle School were vital to this process. Gaby said that she felt relieved and very happy when she found out she had made it. She had put lots of effort into getting excellent grades and having a spotless record. Gaby said that if she had not been accepted, she probably wouldn’t believe in herself as much or put effort into her schoolwork. This has changed her as a person.
