Symbolism In “A Jury of Her Peers” Susan Glaspell’s, “A Jury of Her Peers”, took place during the early 1900s and focuses on the issues of sexism and social injustice that still exists today. In this feminist classic, Sheriff Peters and his wife, Mr. Hale and his wife, and the county attorney, Mr. Henderson go to the Wright Household to look for evidence to use against Mrs. Wright. When they arrive, the men disregard everything associated with women, whereas, the women look in debt, put themselves in Mrs. Wright's shoes, and find clues that could potentially prove that she killed her husband. While living in a male dominated society and continuously being belittled by the men, the women decide to not only break the law, but go against their husbands by hiding evidence. Throughout the story, Glaspell uses the symbols of the dead canary, the kitchen and the quilt to not only promote gender inequality roles but show what life must’ve been like for Minnie; imprisoned by her husband.

According to George Washington, “The basis of our political system is the right of the people to make and to alter their constitutions of government.” Replace ‘people’ with ‘students’ and this becomes a powerful declaration about the politics within the organization of the California Future Farmers of America (FFA). As with any political arena the FFA is an organization where power bases and allies are developed; however, it is the students who define those relationships. The five underlying principles of the political frame are clearly present within the FFA. Bolman and Deal suggest that the first guiding concept is that organizations are coalitions made up of individuals and interest groups (2008) and in order to build a strong coalition an organization must

It claims “If one girl with an education can change the world, what can 130 million do?” According to “Life After Bully” by Hannah Rand Alex Libby collected money to make some t-shirts that said “I stand for the silent.” “Turning E-Waste Into E-Treasure” claims that Alex Lin collected E-Waste, refurbished it and sold it to other people. Teen activists need to be hard working and give hope to people affected by the bad things in life. The second reason that teen activists need to be hardworking is that they have to go all the way to the big men/women in the court to change laws about their cause. “How to Help,” by Karen Fanning tells us that. Iqbal changed the laws about child labor “for six years, he spent his days crouched over a loom.” then he spoke out against his slavery and changed the laws about
Go Set a Watchman is a novel written by Harper Lee depicting the ideological conflict that the protagonist, Jean Louise Finch, encounters after coming back to her hometown Maycomb. This written task is an interview conducted a day after Jean Louise witnessed her father Atticus and her friend and potential love interest Hank attending the Maycomb City Council meeting. The intended audience is the fans of the novel who are interested in Jean Louise’s reaction to the shocking reveal of Atticus and Hank’s racist beliefs. Throughout this interview, I intended to fully express Jean Louise’s emotion after finding out her loved ones are in fact racists. I chose to do so in the form of an interview because depending on the questions asked by the interviewer, the character, Jean Louise Finch, can fully reveal her current state of mind.
In Mi Familia, the mother of the family is deported without good cause by the U.S. government based on nothing more than blind American prejudice, signifying the racial tension that exists between white and Latino communities and to which Chicanos must adapt as they establish livelihoods in America. This theme is also presented symbolically throughout the film by the white owl, which appears when Chu Cho’s mother crosses the river and almost drowns herself and her son, and also just before he is killed by the police. The owl represents the chokehold that fate has on Chu Cho’s life from the time he was born—unfortunately symbolizing the burden of poverty, domestic abuse, crime, or narcotic involvement that some in the Chicano community bring with them from Mexico into the United States. As remarked by the narrator, “Chu Cho was living on borrowed time”—his life fully belongs to the unfortunate destiny that harasses many Chicano communities within the United States (Mi Familia). At the end of the film, the father remarks to his son Jimmy: ‘the corn is strong but so are the weeds,” metaphorically referring to the failure of two of his sons—Chu Cho and Jimmy—to succeed in life because of how they succumbed to lives of crime and failed to live up to his expectations.
Amanda Knox from Seattle, Washington, Kercher’s twenty-year old roommate was identified as a suspect. In 2009 the Italian court found Knox, her boyfriend Rafael Sollecito and Rudy Guede guilty of Kercher’s murder (Mirabella, 2014). Rudy Guede, a drifter, was the primary offender and led to the reversal of Knox and Sollecito’s prosecution which turned to favour Amanda and Soillecito. Rudy 's DNA was found in Kercher 's purse, sweatshirt and also touch DNA in her body. These evidences were strong and overwhelming to prove his crime.
“The language that one utilizes in organizing work may be the most critical component of community organizing practice” (Gregory, 1999). Language helps frames and communicate messages. In an article by Cathy J. Cohen, Millennials & the Myth of the Post-Racial Society: Black Youth, Intra-generational Divisions & the Continuing Racial Divide in American Politics (2011), Cohen states that the "millennials" will dominate the political arena, many of the thorny social issues that have caused great debate and consternation among the American public will be resolved. This suggests that young voters will take over policy-making and leadership. In 2013, the Supreme Court of the United States of America ruled that section four of the Voter’s Registration
By developing a new kind of party activist and supporting strong candidates willing to reach across the political divide, we could move past politics as usual. It was this understanding which attracted me to my first post-college job as a Houston field organizer for Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s gubernatorial campaign. I was inspired by Governor Abbott’s personal story as a man able to overcome his circumstances to become the state’s first wheelchair aided governor. I believed fundamentally in the campaign mission of building a stronger Republican Party through improved engagement with historically neglected minority communities. The campaign shared my belief that a successful political party in the 21st Century requires elected officials who reflect the diversity of its people, and that Republicans have a special obligation to show that our values are universal ideals applicable to people of all faiths, races, abilities and sexual
