This was a successful form of resistance as the protests lead to a number of warrant chiefs resigning and also caused the colonial power to withdraw the new tax that was going to be implemented. This movement was remarkable as it included only women that were armed with their anger and grievances, these protests are great examples of anticolonial and feminist movements against colonial
Most of these girls come from broken homes where parents have given up or are absent; they’ve also dropped from school. Quérouil also states that “contrary to their male counterparts, who fight to gain control of a council estate block, those girls get into fights far from their homes and without any financial motivation” (2012). Where the boys try to keep low profiles especially for the police, those girls “want to be noticed, want to be heard, so that’s why they cause a ruckus” (Quérouil, 2012). And this sudden rise of female gangs is noticed in alarming numbers: the number of minor girls involved in criminal offences grows three times faster than the boys’ (Quérouil, 2012). But there is a deeper issue there, which can be noticed especially when the girls say that “violence comes from where we grew up.

Thousands of women have screamed at the top of their lungs, clawed at the patriarchy, and tirelessly fought for their rights as citizens of the United States of America. From the beginning of mankind, women have been labeled as inferior to men not only physically, but mentally and intellectually as well. Only in 1920 did women gain the right to voice their opinions in government elections with a vote, while wealthy white men received the expected right since the creation of the United States. A pioneer in women’s suffrage, Susan B. Anthony publicly spoke out against this hypocrisy in a time when women were only seen as child bearers and household keepers. Using the United State’s very own Constitution and Declaration as ammunition, Anthony wrote countless speeches and called for the right to vote in a country that boasted equality and freedom for all, yet women were not included.
Men and women of the past have fought through numerous trials in order to gain freedom for those living today. However, women have continuously been looked over despite the fact that they are imaginative, creative, and possess unlimited potential. While many have donated their efforts to women’s freedom, famous women such as Angelina Grimke, Annie Smith Peck, Bobbie Rosenfeld, Marilyn Monroe, Marian Anderson, and Eleanor Roosevelt, have made significant contributions. While men were leading the industry and everything around it, women rose and fought prejudices during the 1930s and beyond. Women all around have inspired millions, the fight started centuries ago with slavery, women’s rights, and religion.

Killing Abortion Is Worse Than Killing a Fetus A woman walks through a crowd of hatred. People scream and jeer at her as she traipses past their signs, calling her a sinner, a murderer, and a monster. The protestors care little for the living, breathing woman- they only care about her fetus. Abortion is a choice a woman makes when she does not want to continue her pregnancy, so she has her fetus removed. It has become demonized and twisted throughout the years, making the procedure harder and harder to obtain.
He responded with unnecessary harshness, to which Cassie felt humiliated and angry. She stood up for herself prominently by screaming at the man and had to be taken away by Stacey. Since she is a young and fiery, most of her retaliations are met with only further hatred. This doesn’t stop her from standing up, though. Another of her pop-ups were with Lillian Jean, a white girl who humiliated her in Strawberry.

During these protest these women would be harassed by police forces (similar to civil rights protest). This further shows the corruption in the justice system. The Mothers focused on the fact that many of their daughters have been kidnapped and nothing is being done about it by the government.

Since then the Mothers of Plaza de Mayo have help forge many other female organizations and provide a political voice for women (Speaking Truth to Power Madres of the Plaza De Mayo).
During the late 1800’s and early 1900’s women’s suffrage was a huge epidemic in the United States along with the rest of the world.
