There are 4 types of discrimination: unfair discrimination, direct discrimination, indirect discrimination, and positive discrimination. Unfair discrimination is when a person is treated unfairly compared to someone else. For example when there are 2 people going for a job with the same qualifications but only 1 of them is considered for the job. Direct discrimination is when someone is rude or offensive to someone because they’re different. For example calling someone names because of their weight. Indirect discrimination is harder to recognise. An example of this is a manager may be friendly to one member of staff but rude to another. Positive discrimination is when a decision is made in a persons favour because there is something different about them. For example a job may be advertised for someone with fair skin and red hair.

Life in the twenty-first century has its perks. There have been some amazing advances in the world, with major breakthroughs in science, medicine, technology, and more. But the part we take for granted most is our ability to be human beings. For the majority of history, women were seen as lesser than men. Men thought that they were emotional, hormone driven creatures with no greater purpose in life than to bear children. The enormous pressure on women to reproduce made it nearly impossible for them to advance politically or academically. With no ability to control their fertility, women were pushed to the background and were expected to stay there. However, through the course of history, many brave women and even men have done everything in
Title IX has played a significant role in the lives of women and will continue to do so if school administrators, policymakers, and community leaders have a better understanding of the law and use it accordingly to benefit those in need of it. By understanding its implications for mothers and creating programs that represents the law and its purpose, school institutions can better facilitate education for them. Mothers have often been neglected when it comes to Title IX because school administrators did not understand the law’s effects on and intentions for mothers (Fershee, 2009; McNeeley, 2008).

Each person has a different and unique reason to be pro-choice. Someone’s own body is their property, and no one can use it without permission or consent. I am pro-choice because I don't think there is any reasoning why a woman should have to face all the ramifications or consequences from something that she did not do alone. If a guy can get a woman pregnant and then flee, there is no reason why she should be the only one responsible for everything. Having more options puts a woman on a more equal position with men, instead of being someone that can be taken advantage of. In addition, I think that it is best for a child to not be born at all than to be born loathed, by a mother who is forced to have him because she has no other options, and not because she wants the child.

Discrimination is the treatment of a person based on prejudice and biases. For example, speaking up for women’s education under a Taliban Regime that spoke against women going to school, Malala Yousafzai got shot in the head and neck and lived. After miraculously living Malala became a symbol for the struggle of rights of girls and women across the globe.

In some regions of the world women aren’t worth much neither capable of doing anything. We hear many cases of woman around the world being deprived of their rights around the world and forced to be nothing but objects or trophies that men “win”. Being judged on unrealistic expectations, and not being heard based on
