If college students continue to cut out the aspects of education that may be upsetting, it is very likely that things worth learning will disappear. When classrooms are meant to comply with a certain level of safety and well being, the freedom of real curiosity and discovery are removed and unreal expectations for life are generated. Your Analysis: I found this article to be thought provoking and well written. The author, Peggy Noonan, brings up a number of points that I believe to be relevant in today’s education system. It’s definitely probable that if universities continually remove and edit classroom material and discussions, the kind of learning that results in actual progress will be inhibited.
There were significant divisions between the political and industrial wing of the labour movement after the government refused to introduce a price referendum. The industrial wing, according to Maclean, was furious, viewing the government’s actions as a “capitulation to business and the interests of the economic class”. But more practically, Scott argues that it cannot be overlooked that “men and women were feeling the pinch” of the poor economic conditions the war brought. The economy contracted 10% in the first year of war, unemployment rose, and, while the average weekly wage rose 12% for men and 8% for women, this never kept pace with the rate of inflation. Geoffrey Blainey writes these poor conditions caused the “trade unions to complain that workers were the economic victims of war”, with growing tensions seeing 2405 industrial disputes between 1914 – 1919, 1.7 million days lost to industrial action and strikes, and rowdy women-led cost of living strikes in Melbourne in 1917.

For instance, many women worked within the Bolshevik government, giving them a figure of authority rarely seen before in a powerful and influenceable country. This can be seen through the condemning tone used by Mariia Fedorovna to accuse individuals who see women as inferior against the ruling government. The point of view presented in this document is that respectable people think of all members in their societies as equal, with governments that make their primary goal to give all of their citizens the same resources and opportunities. Also, the high percentage of women among research and professional personnel in the Soviet Union demonstrates the true economic power women gained during the communist Soviet Union, being one of the primary forces driving the Soviet Union’s economy(Doc.4). Women were highly involved in education, giving them the power to encourage equality as a primary value, pursuing nationalism.

Because of sexist opinions of the time, many people believed that a woman had no power to create change, especially in government since she could not vote. Women themselves believed this societal expectation, and although Grimke does not reject society’s idea of femininity and womanhood entirely, she specifically rejects their supposed political incompetence in a rebuttal. Using evidence from general and specific political movements in England, all of which were greatly aided by the support of women petitioning the government, Grimke assured her audience that “When the women of these States send up to Congress such a petition our legislators will arise, as did those of England, and say: ‘When all the maids and matrons of the land are knocking at our doors we must legislate.’” (Grimke, 192) This summary of her somewhat vague past points is similarly nonspecific; however, this is still effective since simply alluding to historical events rather than explaining them was sufficient for an audience that knew more about England and its history than contemporary Americans do today.
Nowadays our world is changing hourly – its political, social and economic global picture depends on the decisions (more or less important, but still important), which are taken every minute. Sometimes it seems that all significant events have taken place, moreover it was a long time ago. At the same time we forget that there are areas of life, our daily lives, which have been completely different recently. In modern Western societies the right to receive education and to vote for women is natural part of life, contrast to the Third world counties, where women still do not have opportunity to take part in decision-making and influence various spheres of life in their countries. Skeptics may wonder: “What is so special about the fact that women are allowed to vote?”
For anybody, being employed can have a crucial impact on their lives. It also has great importance on our social and material well being. Income, self-esteem, identity and sense of independence are just a number of benefits that people can gain from being an active and useful member of the workforce. Yet from a historical perspective, many disabled people have been denied such benefits because of their exclusion from mainstream social and societal activities such as worthwhile employment in particular. Interestingly, disable workers have in the past found themselves welcomed and encouraged into employment during time of shortage of able bodied workers during times of war (Barnes, Mercer & Shakespeare 1999, p.22).
However, the unemployment rate had not changed much within those years. With a significant amount of individual unemployed the nation suffers. As the number of unemployed continues to climb or the longer they are without work the more money the government has to pay them in benefits. The effects of being unemployed also affect other businesses; due to unemployed individuals are not being able to spend money as they would if they were working businesses suffer, over long periods of time that particular business may lay off staff; increasing the number of people unemployed or potentially lose the business. Furthermore, the lack of being employed affects a family, Britney’s mother was affected tremendously and caused her hospitalization because she couldn’t deal with the stress of her family lacking an income.

The “Misogyny” speech by Julia Gillard, the prime minister during the time, was performed in the house of representatives on 9th of October 2012. Clear usage of her role as prime minister, her gender and word choice are shown as effective shaming of the leader of the opposition, Tony Abbot. The speech was given because of Abbots sexist and Misogynistic statements.

In doing so she was able to defend her standpoint as a female minister of Parliament.
