In the Oubre v. Entergy Operations, Inc. Case, Dolores Oubre the plaintiff was a scheduler at power plant in Killona, Louisiana, which is run by Entergy Operations, Inc. (the defendant). In 1994, Oubre’s employer gave her two options: she can either improve her job performance or accept a severance pay. While accepting the severance package, Oubre signed a document that released her employer Entergy of all claims. Although the employer Entergy Operations was released of all claims, it failed to meet specific standards or requirements for a release under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), as decided or set forth in the Older Workers Benefit Protection Act (OWBPA). In procuring the release, Entergy failed to comply in at least three respects with the requirements for a release under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, as set forth in the Older Workers Benefit Protection Act: It did not (1) give Oubre enough time to consider her options, (2) give her seven days to change her mind, or (3) make specific reference to ADEA claims (Twomey, 2013, p. 548).

During the play the county attorney states, “But you know juries when it comes to women... a thing that would connect...” (Glaspell, 191). In the setting of this play, women were not allowed to become juries meaning that they cannot influence many courts’ decision when women were being accused of a crime. In result, men hold the power to make many decisions in the legal system, while it also enhance their power and influence in society. Furthermore, the county attorney reminded Mrs. Peters, “For that matter, a sheriff’s wife is married to the law” (Glaspell, 192).
Adichie 's Purple Hibiscus is a women 's activist work that difficulties the dehumanizing inclinations of the menfolk as clear in the character of Mama (Beatrice Achike) who in the long run uncovered the African origination of a perfect lady who keeps stupid even notwithstanding mortification, exploitation, and ruthlessness in order to be seen as a decent lady. We will put forth a resonating defense to depict that Achike has a place with the class of liberal woman 's rights. In any case, as occasions unfurls,
Throughout history individuals are characterized based on their gender, race and age. Decades ago, Americans were criticized based on their physical characteristics rather than their qualities. In the past, people were stripped of their rights because they might have been a woman, African American, or older in age. Since then mindsets have changed, now people have been given back their rights.

It was wide than just the salary increments to equate them. The Willmar 8 served as eye opening to the culture, society structures, a traditional family set up, plight of women before several society aspects and the way they handled them. Ironically, the Willmar’s Citizens national underpaid women while there was a law the equal pay act of 1963 prohibiting unequal payment to women and men.

The scientific community and the media are guilty of viewing Henrietta and her family as abstractions; they did not give the Lacks family a fair trial, they’ve yet to give her family any form of compensation for the success of her cell line, and operated on Henrietta like a science fair project. In the non-fiction narrative The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, written by Rebecca Skloot, it states, “The fact that no one had sued over the growth or ownership of the HeLa cell line, he said, illustrated that patients didn’t mind when doctors took their cells and turned them into commercial products.” (204) This is unfair to the Lacks family because the fraud lawyer, Keenan Kester Cofield, deceived them. Although he is a con artist, he has a wide spectrum of knowledge about law than the Lackses really have about anything; they’ve had little to no education, and they barely knew anything about the HeLa cell line.

Ida B. Wells-Barnett targeted racism and segregation through the world of journalism. For example, In the article Ida B. Wells-Barnett (1862-1931) that was reprinted from the National Women 's History Museums cyber exhibit, author Kristina Gupta stated, wells-Barnett published scornful stories about lynching 's and injustice acts that took place in Memphis.

“Governor John Winthrop of Massachusetts is here discussing the wife of the governor of Connecticut, and his feeling that this woman has violated the roles rightly reserved for women by participating in “manly” activities. He believes her violation of “her place” has driven her into madness”, meaning the woman broke the rules of doing a many activity that she wasn 't supposed to do. This supports my claim that is was not a land of opportunity for women because, this means that during when woman were in colonies they mostly worked their whole lives, meaning that men were against women doing manly activities which she should of been doing when she broke the law, but the women should of been able to do manly activities not just teach kids or do child care. This quote “i’m obnoxious who disagree with women doing manly activities they should just sew, the disease a woman poet, a good poem from a women just means stolen or lucky”, means that men were against women poets because they thought if a woman wrote a poem it must of been lucky or stolen so they didn’t care about women and what poetry they wrote. This supports my claim because men were against any manly activities women did such as poetry, if women wrote poetry the men thought that it was just luck and or it could 've been stolen.
