Her dad did not like this and refused to let Ruby go to school but Ruby's mom talked him in to letting her go to school. The next day when she went to school her parents came with her and they spent the entire day in the principal's office. She spent it there so that they were not tortured by the class. Today she continues to fight for more rights for African Americans.
The Ewell’s had little to no money at all, and struggled with class. The family lived behind a dump. In the trial with Tom Robinson, Mayella was scared to tell the truth because of the looks her dad was giving her when it was her turn to speak. Mayella was almost forced to say Tom Robinson raped her or her dad would have beaten her.

On November 22, 1943 many people say that a miracle of women’s was born. This miracle was born in Long Beach, California. The ever so called pure tennis talent was given the name Billie Jean Moffitt, later known as Billie Jean King. Billie Jean King had many different difficulties and obstacles she had to overcome while all of this creating lots of controversy. While fighting against the viewpoints of society and creating lots of controversy, Billie Jean King overcame this and is now considered one of the best women tennis players of all time, as well as one of the first prominent U.S. athletes to announce that she was a lesbian, and a huge defender of women’s equal rights.
Beth shows that she has an obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) because she shows mental and interpersonal control, she’s preoccupied with orderliness, and always trying to perfect everything. For example, Beth was trying to control what Calvin wore to Bucks funeral and to be honest, it really didn’t matter what Calvin wore to their son’s funeral. By Beth getting mad at what Calvin wore, it really confused him as to why it mattered if what he wore would affect grieving over Buck. Beth tries to controls everyone so she can live this “perfect” life. By being this type of person, it leads to her leaving Conrad and
Johnson is an African American physicist and mathematician, and the most powerful character in the movie because of her ability to write trajectory equations that launched space shuttles into orbit. For me, the remaining characters in the film appeared to be extras, except for astronaut John Glenn, who had high respect for Johnson’s knowledge in the field of mathematics and the sciences. Johnson is a genius because of her ability to use more of her brain functions them most people. My mother taught me that we all have the ability to be geniuses; however, it requires a person to think a certain way that challenges their full capacity of their brain. Every day, I aspire to use the full capacity of my brain in an effort to achieve academic excellence.
Another reason is because she is a single mother with three kids. Last one I am going to state in this essay is because of the way she talks. Her language is very dirty (she says a lot of curse words.) Erin Brockovich faced a few of conflicts/injustice that I will explain, in the beginning of the movie Erin was in a vehicle crash with a doctor, she took him to court, but because he is a doctor the judge believed that it was her fault. Desperate for income Erin was in search for a job, she went to many places looking for employment but nobody would hire her.
You can’t just apologize and think that it is going to make the “scar” go away. That person is always going to remember what you did to them. An example would be in middle school there was a girl in my class that was always bullied, finally one day I had enough this poor girl hadn’t done anything to deserve it and I stood up to all the people bullying her and told them that it wasn’t necessary and that they were just tearing her down to build themselves up. I needed courage to say this because no one really liked this girl and if I were to stand up for her I would make a lot of people mad but in the end it was worth standing up for her because she felt like she could trust me and help her stand up to those people.
In the small town of Maycomb, Alabama, an abused young lady named Mayella Ewell shakes the town with accusing an African American named Tom Robinson of rape. Mayella has no power and that will be shown throughout her life and what people have said and done to her. Mayella’s power is shown by class, race, and gender in Harper Lee’s book To Kill a Mockingbird. When it comes to class Mayella has very little power because she lives behind the town dump, the windows were merely open spaces in the walls, and the so called fence was broken tree limbs , broomsticks and tool shafts. Mayella did not have a lot going for her because she tried to keep clean, but she was still considered dirty.

Although some people might argue that Shirley Chisholm does not demonstrate leadership qualities, a closer examination proves that the former congresswoman was a strong leader because of her independence, perseverance,and willingness to take risks. Shirley Chisholm is a great leader because she blazed a trail by being the first African American Congresswoman. For example, “Chisholm indulged her maverick nature in a spectacular gesture. She became the first black woman to run for president” (Morin pg1).This proves that she was the first black individual in her field to run for president so this makes her a trailblazer because all leaders should possess this for the reason that no leader can lead from behind.
If you were to look up the word great in the dictionary you’d get “of an extent, amount, or intensity considerably above the normal or average,” which I feel, seems to define Andrew Jackson as a president. Jackson had grown up with very little as opposed to other presidents. He was poorly educated and at a young age he preferred to focus on other things, horse-racing and cockfighting, as opposed to going to school. Unlike past presidents, who had all come from wealthy or moderate backgrounds and were all well educated, Jackson was able to rise up from what little he had, the bottom of the social structure of society. He knew he wanted to be something more, and despite his background, he began to teach himself to read and write.
Organizations are most productive when individuals work as a whole to gather knowledge and when leaders rule effectively in order to gain respect. A leader rules most effectively when they use cruelty to instill fear in their followers (Source D). For example, a coach on a football team will have better results during practice and games if he coaches so that his players fear rather than love him. A way to do this is if the coach uses harsh punishments, like conditioning, when his players step out of line.
