By 2050 70% of the world’s population growth will occur in 24 countries. These countries will have problems providing employment and quality education for their growing young population.

In Jane Addams excerpts from “Women and Internationalism” (1915) Addams discusses men and women and their different feelings about war. She briefly mentions that women experience something completely different in times of war, even if they themselves are not the ones fighting. She explains this by the fact that women are the ones who raise and protect those men from children, and watching them be destroyed is a whole different sensation than just fighting as a soldier. The theme expressed in her discussion is that often the ones fighting the battles, whether it is in war or in everyday life situations, are not the ones impacted the most. For soldiers, the journey that they endure during war is bewildering and often unimaginable, yet the struggle
In the article “The Ticking Bomb”, by Wade Davis, the author uses historical events to further evident his argument of the increase global tension and poverty due to the affluence western countries. The author starts the article with the 9/11 attack and, throughout the article, he examines the cause and effect of the attack. The author concludes that the United States is an omnipotent country, as they “dominate the geopolitical scene” (4). After the 9/11 attack, Americans declare a “war on terror” (G.W. Bush), which, as the author suggests, “[is an isolated phenomenon; however, the al-Qaeda organization, the organization that cause the attack, manifest into conflicts that are getting deeper and broader]” (5).

There is an increasing need for comprehensive care for women through the VA system that comes with the reproductive system and organs due to the increased number of women joining the military. Comprehensive care includes reproductive health, contraception, infertility evaluations and prenatal and obstetric care. In fact, “Women Veterans who experienced military sexual trauma (MST), defined as sexual assault or harassment while in the military, may face particular challenges in seeking reproductive healthcare and thus may be less likely to receive needed contraceptives.” (Goyal) However, the military is also required to handle all aspects of abortions including the monetary needs where the vets’ life is in danger but not if the pregnancy was due to rape.
This incident led to a soldier being dead at the scene and two missing. The bodies had been taken hostage; they were mutilated, beheaded, burned and booby-trapped with explosives. A few weeks later, March 2006, four U.S. soldiers had been part of a rape of a fourteen-year-old girl. During the rape the girls, father, mother and six-year-old sister were all killed. This crime was terrible, the girl had been raped, was murdered and her body was then burned by the U.S. soldiers.
Ella Dotzler GOV 40 Going Further Assignment Identifying Parts of The Process: While reading Dara Kay Cohen’s article, “Female Combatants and the Perpetration of Violence: Wartime Rape in the Sierra Leone Civil War,” there are multiple elements of variation that contribute to the argument. First, there is variation in determining which armed groups in the Sierra Leone conflict rape and which do not, there is variation in the groups in which men and women took part and the distribution of men and women in each armed group, there is variation in the abduction of fighters and the correlation with wartime rape, and there is significant variation in drug use among groups, all of which served as potential counters to Cohen’s argument. These elements

They do this through public shaming and exercising control by banning media. This means of attaining power parallels World War 2 and The Hunger Games. In World War 2, Nazis were known to make a public showing out of brutally torturing and killing. This was a power tactic in attempt to show Jews that they should turn themselves in, and to cause civilians to fear hiding Jews or disobeying. In The Hunger Games, a similar tactic is used.
Several women had to change themselves to survive during war and in Alexiyevich’s War’s Unwomanly Face we can see how women entered war in masculine ways that broke the social norms of what it meant to be a woman at the time. One of the interviewed women describes how, “Whenever I recall the past now I am seized with terror but at that time I could do anything, say, sleep next to a killed person, and I myself fired the rifle and saw blood; I remember only too well the especially strong smell of blood in the snow... It makes me feel unwell even to talk to you... It wasn’t that bad then and I could go through anything.” Some women were forced into war and had to adapt to their circumstances.
Russia invading Afghanistan in 1979 marked the beginning of the end for all the new freedoms the earlier decades had brought. (The Week UK) As Afghanistan has no doubt been known to be connected to war, these women have suffered the consequences. Over the last several decades, the country has been inhabited by U.S troops as well as communist soviet troops.

Soldiers train rigorously, preparing for the departure of war. They sacrifice all that they have to fight for their country.

That this one person even if not being able to do a lot materially to change the world, still has the power to inspire others and help that person changes the world. It may be hard to believe, but I have a strong belief that one person can set an example for others that may affect the outcome of any and every situation. I always ask myself this question and as Maya Angelou once said, “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel” and that is absolutely true.
Men think that they are only used to bare children and to obey men (Gbowee). Kony steals girls and gets his men to pick their ‘wives’, the higher rank you are the more wives you can have, these girls are raped, beaten, and sometimes killed if they do not obey. They are used as sex slaves, cooks, spies, and porters to serve Kony. There are female soldiers but they are either the wife of a high ranked man or if they are good at fighting and prove themselves in a battle. The Jewish girls often got beat and raped or they had sexual relations for food (Holocaust Encyclopedia).
