Yousafzai first started to speak up for her rights when a mafti wanted her father’s school to close. The mafti had tried to close the school because the school allowed girls to go to school and because he considered it “a disgrace to the community”(Yousafzai 90) Malala Yousafzai was afraid that once she spoke out, she would be silenced by the Taliban just like how the mafti had tried to close her father’s school down. Even though Yousafzai was doubting herself, she continued to fight for
Aunt Alexandra is stubborn and says Scout cannot invite or spend time with Walter because quote on quote “he is trash”. The scene ends with Jem explaining how the class system works in Maycomb, the whites(The Finches), the farmers(The Cunninghams) in the woods, the trash(the Ewells) who live in the dumps, and the african americans(First Purchase Church), and each class looks down upon the one below it. This scene in the book shows that regardless of how nice,kind,loyal, and respectful the cunninghams are they aren't treated equally just because of their class. In conclusion, Walter is a character in To Kill a Mockingbird who is discriminated against. He is discriminated by teachers like Miss Caroline, by his friends like Scout, and even adults like Aunt Alexandra just because of his class.
Malala has this trait because even when the Taliban put death her, she still spoke out for her and children like her’s rights. She wanted people like her to get an education. She knew that what the Taliban was doing was wrong and she stood up to them. She did what she could to change the world for the better. Carey Faye has this trait because she didn’t want to see suffering dogs, desperate for new homes.
If she would give herself to the Imperials, they would have not found out her secret They would have know that she was not one of them, but from a totaly different civilzation. Jarel said "She had expected to die. Yet she had not been in despair; she had done what she did not out of rebellion against a horrifying fate, but solely out of concern for the keeping of her secret.” This really shows how dedicated she was to not letting the Imperials finding out anything about her and showed her bravery to have the idea to sacrafice
“Assef gritted his teeth. ‘Put it down, you motherless Hazara.’ Please leave us be, Agha’ Hassan said’” (Hosseini, 41). This scene is an example of how daring Hassan is because he is threatening someone who could easily hurt him, but he’s doing it because he feels as if he has no choice, and he believes he needs to protect not only himself but his friend, Amir. Hassan continues to show courage throughout the
The thought of bringing posters home for their daughter caused so much fear and worriedness in Marji’s parents lives because the government forbids any westernized life and the posters contained a western band on them. Therefore, Satrapi clearly showed their emotion through facial expressions. This is significant to the main purpose of the chapter because even though we can clearly interoperate that they are fearful and worried for their lives, they still tried to smuggle the posters over the boarder despite the government’s oppressive law not
Antigone knew that she would be put to death if she buried Polyneices but she would rather die doing the right thing, rather than living and being surrounded with evil. Likewise, Rosa Parks believed that God was not pleased with racism and segregation. Rosa Parks thanks God that she was able to hold her ground and said, “I was fortunate God provided me with the strength I needed at the precise time conditions were ripe for change. I am thankful for Him every day that he gave me the strength not to move”(Hare 1). Rosa Parks was quiet and respectful to others, and she expected the same kind of respect in return.
Sexist dress codes, shaming young girls for our country’s high teen pregnancy rate, sexual harassment, domestic violence are just a few ways how women are treated unjustly in our society. Dress Codes Dress codes in school systems are one of the largest one-sided and unjust issues in today’s society. Maureen Downey explains how “schools waste a lot of time enforcing dress codes, most of which focus on preventing young girls from distracting young boys” (2014. para 1). It is beyond unfair that girls are forbidden from wearing certain clothing articles to ensure that the immature boys next to them focus on their work instead of

Recently, the events in Charlottesville, spurred by confusion and hate have the nation pointing fingers, when in contrast we should be uniting as fellow Americans. Megan Boehnke, a writer for USA TODAY tackles the task of purposing adults and teachers that it is vital for children to be informed not only about the events at Charlottesville, but the national unrest of racial bias as well. She describes how children may not understand the events, but they notice that adults around them are discussing these topics, are acting differently. Instead of leaving children blind of what is happening, one should try to inform children of all ages. One may begin the conversation by asking students what they know and what they have heard.
She continued to wave it, even as they shot at her, she knew that if she died it would not be in vain, but she didn’t die. Stonewall Jackson, a leader of the Confederacy, told his troops to stop shooting. He felt guilty and in that moment he realized that what he was doing wasn’t morally justifiable. Even while having her life in danger she kept waving the flag to show what side of the war she supported. All three were merely ordinary people who came across a moral dilemma, whether to stand up for what they believed in and do something that might cause them danger, or let others suffer.
In the Epilogue, Hammurabi states how the laws should be done (Document A). People followed the laws because they would be punished and also be disobeying their religion and Hammurabi, which brings bad luck, according to Hammurabi. Nevertheless, they didn’t know it was just Hammurabi, and only Hammurabi, who created the laws for everyone to
