Divorce rates in America have been steadily rising. This can be said to be due to many reasons such as the law passed in 1969 stating that it did not have to be infidelity charges or physical abuse in order to get a divorce (Evolution). And this is true; due to this law it has become ever so much easier to get a divorce, and this would lead to people not caring as much about who or when they marry, because it doesn 't have to be forever anymore. The problem is people who do not put in the effort or time to fix their marriage, and rush into it not thinking about the long term commitment it is. In order to fix this, couples need to regain the moral value that once influenced long lasting marriages before.
Women gained the right to vote in 1920 by the 19th Amendment, although many states permitted women to vote before. This made the voting population almost double. Women vote in slightly higher percentages than men, but this has never influenced any election directly. Women also tend to vote Democrat, and so there is a gender gap. African Americans gained the right to vote by the 15th Amendment in 1870, but in the South especially, white people in power used loopholes to make it so that African Americans were not able to vote.
Prior to 1933, there was almost no federal aid for poor African Americans in the south, which meant that the establishment of nationwide federal aid was a huge boon towards African-Americans. However, Franklin Roosevelt did not have much concern for the racial divide at the time he took office. The real thing that made the Roosevelt Administration start pushing civil rights was the First Lady, Eleanor Roosevelt. While she was traveling the country with FDR, she visited several communities of poverty-stricken African Americans, but only realized the depth of institutional racism when attempting to pressure the Subsistence Homestead Administration to admit African Americans to new communities created by the New Deal. She eventually failed in this action, but this was an important step in the battle for racial
Even though the author made excellent claims, we notice a little confusion there. While reading this book, we have learned that the Cherokee culture were very close and similar to European, American culture, language, religion and even live hood. But in page 3 of the book, John Ehle said “A Cherokee women had more rights and power than European women……… and the man built a house for her which was considered her property.” This sentence is contrary the previews one because in European and American culture men had more right than omen and are more powerful. And from that perspective I do not see any kind of similarity between the Cherokee and the American and European. It might have a views others similarities but it is not this one for sure.
“One of the greatest glories of the public school was its success in Americanizing immigrants” Christakis quoted Ravitch in paragraph 20 is what surprised me because I have never heard of this concept before. Personally, I believe that would depend on the student. For example, one of my friends is from the Democratic Republic of Congo (Africa) and at first she was not really Americanized, like she did not use slang, she was not procrastinating. But, as time went on she made more American friends and became accustomed to America that was when she did start using slang and procrastinating. I agree with Christakis when she said “public schools also provide students with crucial exposure to people of different backgrounds and perspectives.” It
He imagines them as people contributing to society instead of them just serving man’s desires. Voltaire is again, light-years ahead of his peers in terms of social knowledge. Candide was written one hundred years before Les Miserables and Madame Bovary but still manages to be more tolerant and optimistic than the two of them combined. The prevalence of rape culture and victim blaming is felt very heavily in modern day, but especially in the time of all three authors. However it is felt most strongly in the ignorant moments of Les Miserables and Madame Bovary.
Obviously no one was looking at me in my plain old dress. When I asked Elizabeth why she wanted to cut her hair in such a way, she told me it was the “in” thing to do if you wanted to be the “new woman”. Then she showed me a magazine called Redbook (Roark, Johnson and Cohen 631-633). There I saw a woman that looked even more seductive than Elizabeth. There was something about Elizabeth that made me want to be like her despite all my upbringing.
O 'Brien seem passionate about the article and expressed ways that women can be enrolled in different programs instead of being incarcerated for nonviolent crimes. Man may have felt that she was being a sexist and the title was misleading because she focused on nonviolent crimes and the not overall "for anything" scenario. The article said 147,000 children with mother is in prison but how many fathers are in prison? If the prison can 't be closed down she want the expansion of prison to be slowed down by identifying women are needed in the community but if women have committed crimes, they aren 't going to better the community but harm it. O 'Brien concept of not incarcerating women for anything and shutting down women 's prison cannot be done and she wasn 't able to suggest with credibility that it will be a good idea for nonviolent crimes with evidence,
Even though the Civil Rights Act changed the public’s political views, it didn’t raise the women pursuing engineering degrees excessively. All through 1968 and 1978, there was an estimated one hundred percent increase of female science and engineering majors in the US. Between 1971 and 1972, a study of over four hundred and forty campuses nationwide displayed that about seventeen percent of the polled STEM majors were women (unintentionally, there was limited discrimination in the American Education System). For the women who applied to engineering programs were enlisted at the same rates as men. Unfortunately, it was estimated that women made up about five percent of engineering majors in that period.
Equality has been a topic of major discussion in the last decade. Equality, which definition consists of the state of being equal or the same, has not had a major impact on gender pay. Men are known to make more money than women do purely based on gender. The Equal Pay Act of 1963 was supported by President John F. Kennedy to cease the gender pay gap and allow women equal rights in wages as men. Although, it has been fifty four years since it went into effect, it seems as the battle for equal pay against the opposite gender is not
