When the United States grew involved in World War 1 the women who took part in the Silent Sentinel protests were labeled unpatriotic. How could people protest against the leader of their country during a time of war? How could women try to tear the country in half during a time where everyone must stand strong together? The women were harshly treated for their alienated actions. Paul, aware of the war and the accusations made against herself, continued to lead the Silent Sentinels in picketing ahead of the White House regardless of the disrespect they presented.

Europeans became helpless to these diseases, so by 1833, the British government banned the slavery. The end of slavery brought the Europeans interests in imperialism and conquering colonies.

As Conrad creates the atmosphere that Africa is seen as limited, in contrast, Paton and Achebe criticize it by... Joseph Conrad primarily perceives the westerners’ attitudes towards Africans similarly like most Europeans who believe they are higher and more developed. Although the author lightly criticizes the Europeans prejudices against the Natives and tries to make his character moderate of the situation, he still shows signs
So they came up with the idea to protest, which didn’t go as they planned. In the article, Life in the 1900s/Women’s Suffrage, it states, “Spectators assaulted the picketers, both verbally and physically. Police did nothing to protect the women. Soon, the police began arresting the suffragists on charges of obstructing traffic.” This text relays the more violent acts that were happening because of the women’s protests. Further into the article, you can read this passage, “By the time Alice Paul had been sent to prison, the fight for women’s suffrage had been going on for almost 70 years.
They became hostile toward them. In Jules Ferry’s speech (document 4), he talks about how the Europeans were the superior race and it was their duty to civilize the inferior races. This took place during the time of the Berlin Conference, when many European states tried to take power over most of Africa. Wilhelm Schallmayer (document 6) was a physician who wrote about how competition was driving out many of the native races, all where the Europeans had colonized and provided such competition. The purpose of him writing this essay was to show how the contrast in civilization was hurting the natives and was causing them to decline.
Anti Feminists continued to degrade and dehumanize women creating tension between the nation. The Philadelphia Public Ledger and Daily Transcript wrote, “ every true hearted female will instantly feel that the Seneca Falls Convention is unwomanly” this specific ledger sent the message that if a women is actually a women they should know that this convention was nonsense. This degraded women and hushed their voices. The statement shut women 's ideas out by saying to just go along with what everyone else thought about women. There was no reason that the Seneca Falls event was unwomanly.
hospitals during the 1960s and 1970s when many women, primarily Latina women were forced into sterilization in attempts of a population control mechanism. The film describes the negative affects these women faced from guilt and the rejection of their families and husbands. Although ten women who were affected from this forced sterilization filed a lawsuit to the supreme court, they lost the case due to a cultural difference that was unforeseen by doctors. Even though the ruling was clearly based off racial privilege, the awareness of the unspoken political agenda by systemic racism and was able to shed light into furthering women autonomy during medical visits. In the same way, the article mentioned earlier by Dorothy Roberts serves as a reinforcement of systematic discrimination done through larger institutions to retain ethnic oppression by regulating population
Where is all the improvement? That is a very frank question. Casually looking at his race one would think that the continent could not sustain development, however a thorough study of history will reveal the exploitation of Africa by the Europeans. The rich continent was subject to rude interruptions by unwanted visitors across the Atlantic. These came in the guise of bringing ‘civilization’ and ‘religion’ to the ‘barbarians’ in the land.
This movie was released in 1950, a delicate period for African countries. Trying to fight for decolonization after having been divided by western countries for their human and natural resources, this continent was not much acknowledged. The first thing to note is that at this specific time, after having discovered the mysterious continent and its inhabitants, the world had a very “savage” view of Africa and its people. “Native” Africans were more seen as uncivilized animals than actual humans with a different culture and history. This movie shows us how the contact between westerners and Africans was established but most importantly exposes a problematic view of Africa that is still present today in most of western societies.
Women used different methods to earn the right to vote in the women 's suffrage movement here are some.

the colonists responded by protesting. the boycotted, and also rioting. Rioting proved to be the most effective means of protesting. They signed petitions not to import British goods until the Stamp Act was repealed.

Shillington provides an in depth analysis of how many of these conquests affected Northern Africa centuries ago and today. On the surface, Africa is commonly viewed negatively. Here in America there is a stigma held that it is filled with nothing but poverty and malaria. Although many entitled Americans hold this perception of Africa, many of Greece’s aristocracy and army saw the potential of this great land.
Wells, angry of the evil attacked she wrote in her newspaper exposing the lynches that happened to innocent people.

She always kept exposing white violence and lynching defending black victims. The “following year she helped organize the National Association of Colored Women and she helped found the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People” (PBS) she was a big advocate of the needs of African Americans.
In reality, though, how much of an inconvenience was it to stand and listen to a community that feels it has been wronged by society and ignored by its representatives? Obviously, seeing these two women forcibly take control was frustrating, but it could not have been more frustrating than seeing one’s community be systematically murdered by law enforcement officials with no form of justice imposed on the perpetrators. Black Lives Matter has organized many demonstrations, but most have failed to receive adequate media coverage that explains their cause. This lack of attention to a life or death situation must have pushed these women to act, regardless of whether people wanted to
