However, men’s oppression of women in modern times rises from defensive resistance not in the interests of protecting women, but of preserving men’s privilege haven (Kimmel, 2010). One mechanism of maintaining masculine privilege in modern times is through soft influence tactics, such as rewards and praise rather than harsh influence tactics, like open acts of hostility (Kimmel, 2010). For example, stereotypes and norms of traditional and heterosexual paternalism are
(George,7). Some stereotypes include that women “ are not as strong as men” or that “women can’t be athletic”. This is an important problem that people need to bring awareness to because it affects individuals that prefer something else than what they are thought to do as a male or female, but feel shame in going against it because of stereotypes.

The Awakening goes against women and who they are and thinks of them poorly. Women struggle for freedom and are presented as weak individuals.

The Women’s Movement excluded women of color as well as queer women of color because the Anglo Women’s Movement focused on at least three positions: some wanted access to whatever men had access to, others felt that men had all the power and were responsible for women oppression, and others felt that women oppression was one of many in society that had to be corrected (NietoGomez 54). The Anglo Women’s Movement felt that they needed equal opportunities as men, while the Chicana Feminist Movement focused on racism, sexism, and classism. The Chicana Feminist Movement recognized that men did not have all the power because the Chicano men had no power, they made up for that lack of power through “male privilege” (NietoGomez 55). Due to so much oppression and machismo the Chicana Feminist Movement came to existence. The fact that there were two Women’s Movements hurt the strength of each movement because it was easier to divide and conquer; although it did hurt the movements strength,

Although few states allowed it, numerous states and countries still disapprove of same-sex marriage. However, the majority of the gay population are very open with their sexuality, and they’re demanding for marriage rights.
Adhering to all of the conceptual stances does not mean that race, class, and gender oppression are interchangeable. For example, whereas race, class, and gender oppression operate on the social structural level of institutions, gender oppression seems better able to annex the basic power of the erotic and intrude in personal relationships via family dynamics and within individual consciousness. This may be because racial oppression has fostered historically concrete communities among African-Americans and other racial/ethnic groups. These communities have stimulated cultures of resistance. While these communities segregate Blacks from whites, they simultaneously provide counter-institutional buffers that subordinate groups such as African-Americans
All actions are important, however, some are more meaningful than others. Most, if not all, actions create conflict, which may either be positive or negative depending on many factors. One of the most influential women in American history, Rosa Parks, comes about to be the most notorious for not letting another white passenger could take her seat while she stood in the back of the public bus.

Conversely, there were also other African Americans who resisted others who attempted to take their seats before Rosa Parks, showing Parks was indeed not the first to do so.

Gay rights has been a long protested issue by both sides, for it and against it. One of the most famous groups that go against is the Westboro Baptist Church, who have many protests against the LGBTQ+ community as well as other things, but that is besides the point. They are not the only people that do this as well, some do it presentations in school, some do it on online posts or videos. There are many ways you can show your voice now and protest, though many people, like WBC do still picket with signs and screaming and hate. Each side of this movement has their own protests and riots, a well known riot in the 60’s was the Stonewall Riots.
