Saying no to giving up her seat to a white man on a bus sparked a revolution and some social rethinking. People decided that if she could stand up for her rights, they could too. Because of this, others followed her lead, began straying from social bus standards, and eventually boycotted buses altogether. These people challenged the social standards, thus leading to a social change. The refusal to follow the guidelines of the society promotes social progress by causing people to have new ideas.
She was going through her daily routines, but then she could just feel that she wasn’t right on the bus. In Brinkley’s biography she states, “Park’s mind was more with the NAACP than her work duties” (lines 16-17). Rosa Parks was very dedicated to stopping all the differences between races. She was standing up for her beliefs, and didn’t want to be pushed around. In Brinkley’s biography, she says that Rosa Parks felt fear on the bus ride home.

Tituba was only worried about saving herself, if she would have told the truth their lives would have been spared. Some may say that Abigail could not have stopped the mass hysteria because it had already gotten out of hand. They may also claim that she was only a child and no one would have listened, but the children had a lot of power over the adults. They were listening to her lies so they would have listened to the truth as well. If she would have told the truth, then the other girls would not have felt obligated to play along with the lies.
Brown v. Board of Education opened doors to challenge the issue of segregation in many other areas as well, such as public transportation.

However, because white feminists at the time were focused on obtaining immediate rights to their bodies, they saw informed consent and a waiting period for sterilizations as inconveniences (Davis, 131). Failure to include protections for Chicanas allowed racial ideologies to affect birth controlling, leading to more forced sterilizations. While the Chicano movement did try to combat the racial economic barriers that Chicanas faced, they failed to understand the intersectionality of race and gender. Chicanas in the documentary No Más Bebés revealed that they did not tell their families about their sterilizations because women in their culture who could not give birth were deeply frowned upon. One women said she feared telling her husband about her coerced sterilization because she thought her husband would equate her to a prostitute and throw her out on the street.
“...The hunting accident...the leg had been literally blasted off” (O’Connor 484), this sentence mentioned by the author symbolizes Hulga’s personality, because when something very valuable is taken away from someone and they are aware of it, but are not able to react to it, it could change a person drastically. Hulga could have been a totally different women if she had her leg, that’s why the author decided to give her a wooden leg. In the story the author mentions how Hulga does not care about her appearance at all. When she goes on a date with Manley Pointer she wears a dirty white shirt, applies Vapex as perfume, and never smiles. “...She didn’t like dogs or cats or birds or flowers or nature or nice young men” (O’Connor 485), Hulga’s personality might be like this because of her wooden leg.
During times of difficulty, it’s hard to see the positive outcome that can happen in the situation. Sometimes we jump to the conclusion that nothing positive can help in the situation we face, and we tend to give up. However I believe that if we use the examples of Rosa Parks and the Women suffrage, that it’s possible to turn something negative into something positive. Rosa Parks, an American civil rights activist during the civil rights movement. Her story began in a public bus.
John F. Kennedy once said that "it ought to to be possible... for every American to enjoy the privileges of being American without regard to his race or his color." The Civil Rights Movement, which began when the infamous Rosa Parks was harassed by the police when she refused to give up her seat on the bus to a white passenger, was just one campaign that fought to bring Kennedy 's views to life. The Supreme Court also had a hand in the equalization of the races in America, but it was not always positive. The Supreme Court has influenced the views of civil rights advocates throughout the years: Dred Scott vs. Sanford, Plessy vs. Ferguson, and Loving vs. Virginia. To start off, Dred Scott and his wife lived in Wisconsin with their owner, Dr. John Emerson.

Also, Schlafly believed that women were unhappy because of the unjust society and discrimination to them; for this reason the government needed to do something to solve these kinds of problems. Phyllis Schlafly was a very exceptional woman living in the 20th century. When she was against the women’s liberation movement, many agreed with her opinions, but some disagreed as well. The Equal Rights Amendment was an amendment that was being proposed by the government that would give equal rights to any individual regardless of their race or sex. Schlafly opposed the idea because she believed that if women were given equal rights, they would be enrolled into the military, and that same sex marriage would be legalized; of course none of these actions were correct.
