Moreover, Jean Hastings Ardell, author of Breaking Into Baseball: Women and the National Pastime, commented on how Title IX has blown away limitations for half the country (Nauen). This statement sums up the numerous positive effects that Title IX has had on the female athletic world, such as empowerment, ambition, and healthy habits. Secondly, Title IX has had a positive effect on the Olympics with more female participants. For example, the increase in female athletes after Title IX is captured in the article written by Doris Nhan , entitled “U.S. Women, Title IX Wins Big in Olympics.” The author informs the reader about how for the first time in history the female athletes outnumbered male athletes in the most recent Olympics.
The Adjusting 20s “They must often change, who would be constant in happiness or wisdom.” – Confucius “The 1920s were an age of dramatic, social, and political change and the nation’s total wealth more than doubled between 1920 and 1929.” There were many other major changes that happened in the 20s that are still very effective to this day. The 20s really were action-packed and there were so many events that formed America into what it was today. The 20s were the end of the Women’s Right Movement and it led up to women being able to vote. In our society nowadays, women aren’t only voting, but running as state officials or for presidency. A reason our economy could had been flourishing at this time could have been from the selling and
"Over the past century, women in the United States and around the world have made great strides in the fight to gain economic, social and political equality. Since 1950, the percentage of women participating in the labor force has nearly doubled, from about 34 percent of women holding jobs outside the home. . ." Although men hated the fact that women wanted the right to vote and
In fact, “By 2001, nearly 2.8 million girls participated in athletics, representing 41.5 percent of varsity athletes in American high schools—more than an 847 percent increase from 1971” (Women’s Sports Foundation). An 847 percent increase is difficult to even comprehend. This means that the final amount has increased by a little more than nine times the original amount. To see that much of a difference from 295,000 women participants prior to Title IX is amazing progress toward the end goal of creating equality between the two sexes. There will always be those who question how much of Title IX is actually responsible for these changes.
From this passage we can see that muslims face racism in their daily lives, a muslim girl could not get a job because of the way she was dressed. Does this sound like equality? Was she given her rights being a U.S citizen? This relates to The Crucible, because the innocent individuals that were accused of practicing witchcraft were not being treated equal. Those men and women were not given any rights they deserved, they were treated like animals by the judges and court
Women must hide their skin, and they are taught to be ashamed of their sexuality. When Asayesh complains, “The men aren 't hot,” to a woman on the Caspian Sea’s shore, the woman’s companion is shocked. “Sister, this isn 't about men and women…this is about Islam,” she says. (188) However, that is fallacious: these rules cause Asayesh to feel ashamed and conscious of her bare skin. For example, by wearing a skimpy scarf, she risks “being accused of stepping on the blood of the martyrs who died in the war with Iraq.” (187) Paragraph 11 compares sex with Islam, “the veil masks erotic freedom, but it advocates believe hijab transcends the erotic-or expands it…where I come from, people are more likely to find delirious passion in the mosque than in the bedroom” (188).

In the article, there is a section talks about how women within the community become infuriated with the phrase broken family structure. The women in this community are more concerned with keeping themselves and their children alive, than they are with their marriage. These women would rather spend time with their children than being in a relationship with a man that knows he is a failure and brings negative energy to the family. One of the priests that Kozol spoke to told him that, of course the family structure would break in a place like the south Bronx, where everything breaks from pipes to hearts, so it only makes sense that the family would break too. Moral conservatives would never want to add family’s to this community for the chance of it being
Women are more likely to fight against the men or against other women because they want to identify with what the other deny them (Melucci, 1996). In other words, women and girls are more likely to continue to fight and pursue jobs of power in order to be identified as powerful, accomplished, strong women, which is what they are denied by other people. However, in order for that to happen we need to be recognized by others in order to confirm and determine who we are. Along with identity, collective identity is another tactic used in the film. Seen in the documentary there is a collective interest of feminists to prevent the objectification of women.
Hmong identities are often influenced by three major factors that dictate patriarchal gender roles in Hmong families and communities. The importance of family, marriage, and roles by birth has significant contribution in shaping Hmong cultural expectations for men and women. The generational conflicts between these factors have influenced how men and women are expected to behave, but education has slowly paved the way for gender equality as Hmong has always found a way to change their ways of life in accordance to every nation they have come across (Vang, 2016). Ngo (2011) found that Hmong cultural values create a sense of oppression for Hmong girls as they are expected to be submissive while the boys are expected to be decisive. This

Before Title IX was passed, women and young girls were usually excluded from any athletic opportunity that they had. Since the law was passed, women and girls have increased opportunities to participate and the rate has increased exponentially. Greater numbers of participation are shown in more elite competitions including the Olympics, World Championships, and Professional leagues, and stunning achievements have been made. However, many schools across the country still refuse to provide equal opportunities for girls to participate in sports. Attacks on Title IX often spring from misconceptions about how the law
