The second Girls Bills of Rights states, “Girls have the right to express themselves with originality and enthusiasm” ("Girls Inc. | Inspiring All Girls to Be Strong, Smart, & Bold"). Girls should be able to be themselves without any backlash from peers or anyone. Society has a bad habit of shunning and body shaming young females. Young girls are vulnerable and will not take criticism lightly, so it is best for them to be themselves. Girls should be comfortable and confident in their image.
Equality of genders is a basic human right that all should posses. However, in the novel A Thousand Splendid Suns, by Khaled Hosseini, the reader explores Afghanistan’s true nature of extreme gender inequality towards women and how it affects all the characters within the novel. The novel explores how within a marriage, women have unequal rights, undergo major amounts of physical abuse, and are emotionally and mentally tormented by their very own supposedly beloved husbands.

Have you ever thought about women 's rights and equality? It’s not as pretty or memorable as you think it is. But just like Shirley Chisholm said “at present, our country need’s womens idealism and determination, perhaps more in politics than anywhere else.” Which is true but back then it certainly wasn’t. Let me take you way back to when women and men were not equal, and when men had more power over women.
For as long as the world has existed there has been sexism. Even after the women rights act was passed in the 1920’s there has still been discrimination against women. Wether it be in the workforce, online, or just out in public sexism still happens. In the year 2018 women should not still be discriminated simply for their gender. Many people wonder as to what would be the best approach to end sexism. I believe the best approach to end sexism is an equality feminism approach. The only way to truly ever get rid of sexism would be to see women as equals and offer women the same resources and training that the men receive to help them succeed. If this were to happen it would show women have the same potential as men and that they just need the proper training. To do this we as a whole would have to find a way to end institutional sexism. So when it comes to looking for a solution an equality feminism would be the best way not only would it show men and women were created equal, for this to happen there would need to be an end to the levels of sexism, in the long run this would be the best way
What modern feminists refuse to admit is that feminism is only one side of a two-sided coin of inequality. A “movement” that advocates for the rights of one gender over another is sexist and unequal by nature. If feminists were striving for equality, then they wouldn’t be FEMinists. Being feminist, simply put, means that you want women to not only be equal to, but greater than men.. Thus, I believe that feminism is a poorly made masquerade to cover women’s desire to control men.
Being a girl is hard, women have been the second best since the beginning of time, women weren’t allowed to do a man's job in the military and it’s time that further evolves into women and men doing all of the same jobs. Although, some may argue that keeping women protected from the harsh realities of war is the reasonable thing to do and those people have a valid argument when they say women aren’t emotionally stable enough to fight on the front lines, or that women aren’t strong enough to serve; this applies to some women not all. Women have proven themselves capable of so much more than the standard that is set for them in the military: overcoming their physical differences and putting the excuses to rest. The excuses about being a distraction to men and that women are going to be prioritized over fighting.
The presentation by Dr. Mojola on HIV and the affect it has on the African women was outstanding. In Love, Money, and HIV, Dr. Mojola presents paradoxes and convincing arguments on the life of an African girl, and HIV. She explains thoroughly how employment, education, and wealth is the leading factor of life for the people in Africa. Many of the girls and women have to make the choices whether they choose education which could lead to employment, or find a lover at a young age and drop out of school because of money.
As a young girl, my mother always taught me to be independent. On a daily basis she reminded me of my rights as not only an American citizen, but as a (future) independent woman. Female empowerment has always been a topic of interest throughout my life. Having a mother who worked her way to America and built her life up from her monthly allowance she had made selling chocolate bars on the street in a province in the Philippines, I soon realized that I owed it to my mom to work hard and take advantage of the resources that she was not given. As a female American citizen, I recognize all of the opportunities that are simply handed to me on a silver platter. On the other hand, through my experience taking AP Human Geography, I also know what true poverty looks like. I believe that it is our duty as not only Americans but as humans, to help further the development of these periphery countries. More specifically, by addressing the extremely high total fertility rates
In our advanced 21st century, it is hard to imagine our society as anything short of perfect. After all, we have come a long way from our seafaring ancestors. However, the reality is that despite how we may sometimes avoid seeing it, our society is anything but perfect. A very prevalent issue today is that despite laws being set in place to enforce the equal treatment of men and women, women all over the world today still face poor treatment and discrimination. Because of how deep and long this problem has run, revising discriminatory laws may not abolish discrimination and legislating laws that endorse gender equality may not necessarily create equality. However, without laws that promote and safeguard the laws of women, they remain vulnerable and lack the governmental support and legal standards necessary for equality.
Everyone involved in our life has helped raise and teach us about almost everything as they all played a role in our lives. But how exactly did they play a role in our lives? In my opinion, they educated us on things that our time in school did not. In school, they teach us the same four subjects each year: English, Math, Science, and Social Studies. However, they are not teaching us things that we would have to learn from experience later in our lives. They are not focused on teaching us what to expect when we reach the age of adulthood, they are focused on teaching us about the subjects appointed by the Department of Education (DOE). This is the issue we face every day with the school system because although it is great to have a better understanding in these subjects, they should also focus on teaching us how to prepare for the real world. I strongly believe that they should be teaching us how to save money, how to be a better candidate for a job application, and how we are are going to need to be independent. Education should not just be about our academics or else we will never get anywhere. It should also be about how to prepare yourself for real-world problems.
A child is struggling to learn at his/ school. He is more of a visual learner, like learning with pictures and shapes in front of him. His school, however, does not have the power and funding to do such things for him, which leaves him struggling and get bad grades. Now, why does he have to struggle in a school system which can’t even support his learning style?
Gender equality is achieved when all genders enjoy the same rights and opportunities across all sectors of society, including economic participation and decision-making, and when the different behaviors, aspirations and needs of women and men are equally valued and favored.
