Violence distresses the lives of millions of women worldwide, in all socio-economic and educational classes. It cuts across cultural and religious obstructions, blocking the right of women to participate fully in society. Violence against women takes a disgusting variety of forms, from domestic abuse and rape to child marriages and female circumcision. In India women create nearly fifty percent of our population. Women are denied human rights from the framework to the grave..
Colonization led to the Indian Act (Bourassa et al., 2004). The Indian encouraged sexism, because it gave aboriginal women less rights than aboriginal men (Bourassa et al., 2004). This sexism had many negative implications for aboriginal women. According to the Indian Act of 1876, ‘Indian women would lose their status if they married a non-Indian man’ (Bourassa et al., 2004, p25). The Indian act also said that ‘Indian women could not own property, and once a woman left the reserve to marry she could not return to her reserve so she lost all property rights’ (Bourassa et al., 2004, p25).
“‘An unwanted pregnancy could derail a sailor’s chance for promotion, because sea duty is “career enhancing “she said(Book). Whether a Woman is pregnant could determine what position in the military she is or could even be bumped to a lower rank. Women should not be able to be in the military because so many are lost to pregnancy . Women in the military are also more likely to be tortured or raped (Herbert). Since most men are attracted to women this is the leading reasons women in the military are more likely to be raped than men .
For centuries, women have been exploited by the society. Events of women being prohibited from doing things like voting or working and being forced to behave the way it is considered to be socially acceptable have been jotted down in history. Until today women are still viewed as the weaker sex. In some countries, women are regarded less than human and are treated like slaves. Khaled Hosseini goes into the oppression of women in his novel A Thousand Splendid Suns.
(Cooper & Salomons, 2010) Despite that women in general are submitted to victimization, Aboriginal women not only experience it more severely, but more violently.

For example, an autobiography by Bates and autobiographies from the Little Rock Nine, a recorded interview manuscript, a personal letter from Bates to Roy Wilkins, monographs on women leaders in the Movement, as well as, on the Civil Rights Movement itself examining Bates’s leadership skills during the integration of Little Rock, monographs analyzing the actions on several women in the Civil Rights Movement, monographs reviewing Brown vs. Board of Education, monographs on the desegregation and crisis of Little Rock Central High School, newspaper article examining the integration crisis of Little Rock and biographies on Bates, provide necessary information on her roles as a leader in the community and in the Civil Rights Movement. The newspaper article, along with the biographies on Bates’s life and the monographs about women, Brown vs. Board of Education and Bates’s leadership skills, offer outside interpretation of events. In the newspaper article, I believe I will find a different viewpoint on the integration of Little Rock and how the president 's involvement allowed the integration to move forward. In monographs, I expect to find critical analysis of her work in the community as the president of the local NAACP chapter and her leadership skills in the integration of Little Rock Central High School. I also expect to find how she differed from other women leaders in the movement.

What did Trujillo do that people didn’t like?Well for example sinita wanted to shoot Trujillo with the bow and arrow because he did bad things to Sinitas family member. Also it seemed like Trujillo was had unequal rights to women in the country because Maria Teresa was talking about Trujillo and his unequal rights” it 's about time we women had a voice running in this country”and it meant Trujillo didn’t like women to go beyond themselves in the country. Trujillo really did have much power and many people just wanted equal rights over it. For example Maria teresa wanted to have power as a women and go to law school and some day make a change around the
In this way, he identified himself with the suppressed classes. Rosemarie Morgan thinks that continuous censure, criticism and frustration is precisely what increased his sympathy towards women who were coerced to conform to the men 's world (Morgan, 2006, p.15). This chapter of the paper makes an attempt to discuss the importance and the influence that the society with its prejudices had on the portrayal of women in the novel, with special focus on the protagonist Tess of the d 'Urbervilles. Social influences and prejudices include the oppression that Tess receives from her family, the church 's denial of a proper burial for her baby, and the society 's judgments on being a mother of an illegitimate child. The second one is gender restraints, illustrated through male
