Thousands of women have screamed at the top of their lungs, clawed at the patriarchy, and tirelessly fought for their rights as citizens of the United States of America. From the beginning of mankind, women have been labeled as inferior to men not only physically, but mentally and intellectually as well. Only in 1920 did women gain the right to voice their opinions in government elections while wealthy white men received the expected right since the creation of the United States. A pioneer in women’s suffrage, Susan B. Anthony publicly spoke out against this hypocrisy in a time when women were only seen as child bearers and household keepers. Using the United State’s very own Constitution and Declaration as ammunition, Anthony wrote countless
Abigail is later presented as autocratic and flirtatious. This is apparent when she tells John to ‘Give’ her ‘a word’. The use of the imperative verb ‘give’ portrays Abigail as very authoritative and controlling – suggesting she is a confident and strong character (and implies the relationship to be rather one-sided). She continues to describe his word as ‘soft’. This implies that Abigail has a flirtatious and provocative nature (who desires attention from

You stand there taking deep breaths and trying to remember every move you’re about to make. You watch your competition and fix their mistakes in your head, you smile and tell them they did wonderful. You stand there taking deep breaths, and go over the same words you’ve said a hundred times. You wait for your name which will come soon and when it does you take one last deep breath, smile, and take that step on to the stage never moving your eyes from the judges.
“Play for the name on the front of jersey, not the back.” A popular quote for sports players. What does it mean? Anyone who’s seen any sports game with a team uniform would know that the team name is located on the top of the front side of the jersey and the player’s last name goes on the top of the backside of the jersey. So, the quote means play for your team and not for yourself. This kind of philosophy is something that you can get only from sports, but I’m only interested in playing one sport. Or should I say, lucky for my dear parents, I only want to play one sport. How could you possibly pick just one, out of all the variety? It was a challenge, but I managed to pick softball.

There are so many topics I believe that Richard Wright would've talked about today that it is hard to narrow down to just three. If someone told him that we would have a black president in the next century we definitely would have looked at you like you were crazy but if he were here today he would be proud of how much better we have come today. We have improved as a country today for equal rights and treatment of black people but we also still have a long way to go for we are not perfect. For example he would be very ashamed how black people are still getting killed just because of their skin color. He would also be disappointed that blacks are still getting paid less statistically less than whites considering how many jobs Richard had growing up.
