They still can't get over the bombing on Pearl Harbor. After the war Japanese Americans saw a huge change in their everyday lives.

Soon after her move to the Norcom’s estate, Dr. Norcom began pursuing her. Along with the constant sexual harassment, Jacobs suffered the wrath of a jealous Mrs. Norcom. After attempting to escape the evils of Dr. Norcom by bearing two children to a white lawyer, Jacobs suffering only worsened due to the fact Dr. Norcom now had leverage over her.

In her absence the children would not be sent to the plantation” (“Harriet Jacobs”).
Maureen Shaw, the author of "Becoming a Mother Made Me Even More Pro-Choice," clearly states her position in the moot of abortion. The main topic of her article is about how pro-life/anti-choice harms women and their child(ren) and why pro-choice should be more widely accepted. Shaw claims that pro-life supporters misconstrue women who get abortions for being teens who made rash decisions, but " it 's not irresponsibility that makes women and girls seek abortion care. It’s their awareness of just how massive a commitment parenting is." She uses her personal experience as a mother to describe how difficult raising a child can be, so women who get abortions typically are doing the best for their unborn child.
The last main cause of World War 1 is nationalism, the spirit that In Document I, it states Serbia’s reason for war, “The war between Serbia and Austria...is inevitable. If Serbia wants to live in honor, she can only do this by war. This war is determined by our obligation from the duty of our race which will not permit itself to be assimilated.” This quote comes from a newspaper that is ran by Colonel Dragutin Dimitrijevic, head of Serbian Military Intelligence and founder of the secret society “The Black Hand”, the ones responsible for the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand. This document states that the reason that they are going to war is because it is inevitable, it is tradition and culture, and because it is their duty. This document shows that nationalism plays a factor in the start of World War 1 because the Serbians that were lead by Dragutin were given a raise in morale with a speech that explained their sole duty, which was
In The Myth of Seneca Falls, Lisa Tetrault challenges an enduring myth that was produced by a social movement in the United States. While including detailed facts of the women’s suffrage movement, she also analyzes the truths and myths of the Seneca Falls convention. This is so important because this is possibly one of the longest lasting mythologies in U.s history. Her primary goal is to undo the story and along with the memories to determine how and why these events came to be the myth of Seneca Falls. While Lisa Tetrault analyzes the myth of Seneca Falls she allows the reader to learn about the event as well.
