The Sherman Antitrust Act was passed by Congress in 1890. The Sherman Antitrust Act was the first measure put in place to allow free trade without any restrictions, and prohibited trusts in order to end them. This act gave Congress the right to regulate interstate commerce. Any restriction on free trade was marked as illegal and could result in fines and jail time. The Sherman Antitrust Act was basically a shield to protect people from the restriction of big corporations; in addition, this act had an immediate, threatening impact on the dominate businesses in the economy. The Standard Oil Company owned by John D. Rockefeller had a huge restriction on trade, resulting in violation of the Sherman Antitrust
In The Guide “Best Practice Guide from Implementation of Creating Breastfeeding Friendly Space by Jeff Spitz, Sharon Marshall-Taylor, Natalie Felida an entire page was dedicated to describe the problem that led to the need of The Breastfeeding and Policy Intern: “The Brooklyn Breastfeeding Empowerment Zone (BFEZ) is a community-based initiative that addresses the unique structural and cultural barriers which impact breastfeeding rates in Bedford Stuyvesant and Brownsville. The goal of the Brooklyn Breastfeeding Empowerment Zone is to develop a sustainable, replicable, community-based model in North/Central Brooklyn where breastfeeding is the norm and is seen as the default choice for families”. It does so by promoting and empowering community
Evidence base practice (EBP) is a proactive methodology to improving patient care. Nurses are now called upon to research, identify and analyze practice problems so that questions can be answered on how to deliver care. Therefore, the translation of research into practice require strategies such as protocol and guideline to disseminate EBP within an organization (Yoder-Wise, 2015). By researching barriers to breastfeeding in the neonatal intensive care (NICU), policy changes are noted to be indicated. The objective of this Dissemination Plan is to identify and organize the activities to be performed in order to promote breastfeeding in the NICU to the key stakeholder and the greater community.
Pregnancy and birth for the modern Ojibwe woman differs very little from current American practices. Both AN and her brother were born in a hospital, their mother received prenatal care, and both were formula fed. When asked about breastfeeding views patient was unsure if she would want to breastfeed when she has children as her mother didn’t and she feels that it would be very embarrassing to breastfeed in public. AN states that Ojibwe women are very modest and do not feel comfortable being exposed in public no do they feel it is appropriate.
Over the past 50 years, our sense of style has evolved tremendously. With the evolution of fashion has come dress codes and what this society thinks is appropriate clothing choices. Many women and girls are faced with the everyday challenge of fitting into todays society. This article definitely showed how women need to stop feeling degraded by other people, equality between women and men, and also how us women should have a voice in what we want to wear.
In today’s society a woman’s private choice has never been so public. In the United States, abortion was illegal for most of the 20th century; however, in the 1960s, when the women’s rights movement began to grow, abortion was argued, by feminists, as a women’s control of her body (“Abortion.”). Whose choice is it now? Is it the governments’, the politician’s, the president’s? No, it is a woman’s choice to receive an abortion. Pro-life activists have been succeeding in the termination of the access to an abortion, however; pro-life activists do not realize the dangers behind the termination of the accessibility to an abortion.

In the Chicago Tribune, August 1, 2000, Darryl E. Owens (Knight Ridder) writes about a birthing practice used for thousands of years that has made a renewed entrance into American Healthcare entitled, “Childbirth ‘Doulas’ Take Root” (Owens, 2000). I found this article to be very interesting as I am studying to enter nursing school, and I have a desire to work as a nurse in women’s health, especially obstetrics. This article describes a different approach to preparing and supporting expecting families before, during and immediately after childbirth.
Everyday people line up outside of abortion clinics protesting against it. But these people are only worried about saving the baby’s life for that moment. Five years later that baby that they saved from death could end up living on the street. If they want to save the child they should adopt it as well. It’s wrong to judge others for their own personal mistakes.
Meet Natalie. Today Natalie woke up a little the other. She woke up and wore the first thing she saw which was a loose workout tank top that had short sleeves and some yoga pants. She just wanted to get to school and get the day over with. The day was going by fast up until a teacher wrote her up for dress code violation. Not only did a teacher write her up, but she had to go the nurse’s office, change clothes, and wear a baggy, bright shirt that said “dress code violator.” Natalie refused to wear the shirt and when she asked why she couldn’t wear what she had on since according to the rules, she wasn’t violating anything, the nurse answered like any other worker in an American school: “the yoga pants are too tight and revealing, and we just don’t want any distractions.” Ever since Natalie’s dress code violation, her school banned yoga pants and leggings. You would think these are made up stories, but these are actual school situations that have made headlines on news articles. Hillary Clinton once said, ‘human rights are women’s rights and women’s rights are human rights. Let us forget that among those rights are the right to speak freely – and the right to be heard.” Some people might say
In the Province of Ontario, Canada, the Ontario’s Employment Standards Act, have their own set of legislation concerning pregnancy. The Act prohibits the discrimination of mothers who are breastfeeding in public places such as theaters, restaurants, and parks to name a few.

What do you think is much better, breastfeeding or formula?. Many women have realized the advantages and the benefits of breastfeeding over many years. At the same time, lots of women opposite the idea of breastfeeding and they prefer formula over it but they are wrong. In fact, some women prefer breastfeeding since it is free and on its ease of use. Breastfeeding is comfortable; it doesn’t require to do bottle feeding.

Breastfeeding has been around forever now, but it’s now not being accepted to be done in public. Women will hear comments like,” could you please cover up,” or ,“ do you really have to do that infront of me?” Women should not have to be judged for something that is natural and healthy. Now, women are starting to fight back towards these comments and won’t stand for what people have to say about them feeding their child. Women should not have to suffer through the harassment of people saying how it’s inappropriate because it is healthy, natural, and legal.
