Antigone understands what she is fighting for, and begins to tell her Nanny. She says, “ Save your tears, Nanny, save them, Nanny dear; you may still need them.

She is a white, mother of two, and this highlights that AIDS is an epidemic that no one is safe from. “Though I am white and a mother, I am one with a black infant struggling with tubes in a Philadelphia hospital. Though I am female and contracted this disease in marriage and enjoy the warm support of my family, I am one with the lonely gay man sheltering a flickering candle from the cold wind of his family’s rejection” (Fisher). Fisher earned the opportunity to deliver her message by speaking out about the issue of HIV and AIDS at platform hearings. “Less than three months ago at platform hearings in Salt Lake City, I asked the Republican Party to lift the shroud of silence which has been draped over the issue of HIV and AIDS” (Fisher).

To explain, Rowlandson compares the troubles she faces during her captivity with the hardships Job endured by expressing that she “only am escaped alone to tell the News” (Rowlandson 259). Rowlandson compares her surviving the initial attack by the Native Americans to Job’s servants escaping various tragedies in order to share the news of what happened. Likewise, Bradstreet compares her housing burning to Job losing all his possessions by explaining that she, like Job, “blest His name that gave and took” (Bradstreet 14). Both Rowlandson and Bradstreet compare their situations to the story of Job as a model to understand the meaning behind why God would give them such burdens and to help them get through their situations. Additionally, Rowlandson explains that before her captivity and before she “knew what affliction meant, [she] was ready sometimes to wish for it” (Rowlandson 288).
It is an imperative matter that we take a look at the impact of Title IX on sports as well as why it should be viewed from a multidimensional perspective. Women’s opportunities for competitive physical activity were restricted in America up until Federal Legislation, commonly referred to as Title IX, which later became law. It required American society to recognize a woman’s right to participate in sports on a plane equivalent to that of men. Prior to 1870, activities for women were recreational rather than sport-specific in nature. They were informal, noncompetitive, rule-less; they emphasized physical activity rather than competition.
