In her image “five-day forecast” she has two words in each day such as; misdescription, misidentifies and mistranslate. When the audience sees this particular image they think of race and identity because Lorna has her arms crossed in each box but it happens to be so that as the days pass by her shirt starts getting wrinkled.

As a result of her declining to make the promise, she was given an option of a fine or a jail sentence. She ended up choosing to spend thirty days, in the Queens County Penitentiary, to finish her sentence without incident (Posts about Comstock Law on Margaret Sanger Paper Project). Right after, in 1942, Sanger founded the American Birth Control League, which eventually became known as the Planned Parenthood Federation of America (Margaret Sanger (1872-1966)). According to Sanger, “The most important force is remaking if the world is free motherhood” (Sanger 2). Sanger will see how in the future, in a world where women can create their own paths will benefit the world.
She once said, “My mother told me to be a lady. And for her, that meant to be your own person, be independent.” Her mother instilled the importance of education and feminism into her brain. Ginsburg also said, “The law was something most unusual for those times because for most girls growing up in the ‘40s, the most important degree was not your B.A. but your M.R.S.” Her mother made sure that despite what society thought, if Ruth was independent and pushed herself, she could truly become anything she wanted. Sadly, her mother passed away a day before Ginsburg graduated from James Madison High School and she was never able to see all of the life changing events that her
However, he does not want to marry her: “[…] [I]sn’t it a mad thing I’m saying again that you’d be asking marriage of me” (TW I. 4). Likewise, Michael’s mother does not approve of such a marriage and she says: “[…] I never knew till this day it was a black born fool I had for a son” (TW II. 34). Despite the scorn of his mother, Michael eventually decides to marry Sarah because, like a bourgeois, he has patriarchal economic reasons for tying up his woman as wife as she earns a great deal of money.
I learned that families are not always going to have the same views and are definitely not always going to agree on social issues. For instance, I brought up planned parenthood in the interview and while me and Lisa love and support planned parenthood my grandma did not know much about it and referred to it as an abortion clinic. I quickly pulled out a powerpoint I made to prevent defunding planned parenthood to show her all the other services planned parenthood offers and how abortions were only the tiniest sliver. I taught her about it and she said she was going to look into it more and learn more about it. Overall this was a great experience and I am blessed to have such strong independent women in my

Set of characteristics in which a person/ thing is definitively recognizable is what defines oneself true identity. Luckily we are able to see how this takes place within three stories. “What If Shakespeare Had a Sister” by Virginia Woolf (1882-1941) this story demonstrates the different opportunities women and men had at the time. Proving that women had no value and had no identity at the time, women were made to feel like their thoughts and ideas were not valued what so ever and had no choices or life on their own. In the story “Two Ways to Belong in America” by Bharati Mukherjee’s talks about two sisters Mira in which she came to Detroit in 1960 to become a preschool teacher and married an Indian student.
Judy herself worked up the courage to make this lithograph as she was realistically rejected by the “Rejection Lunitet.” Five of her different works were originally inspired before this one and several experiences Judy has held in her life during this final process. Finally, she stood up against society, just like I have every day as a Deaf person- I immediately felt what she felt. At the bottom of this piece Judy Chicago couragely writes in beautiful cursive, “This is a print made from the center drawing of the Rejection Luiintet five works originally inspired by several experiences I had in Chicago; one with a male collector, both of whom made me feel rejected and diminished as a women. I decided to deal with my feelings of rejection and in so doing confronted the fact that I was still hiding the real subject matter of my art behind a geometric structure as I was afraid that if I revealed my true self, I would be rejected. In the first drawing, I asked: “How does it feel to be rejected?” and answered: “It’s like having your flower split open.” In the last drawing, I asked: “How does it feel to explore your real identity?” and answered: “It’s like opening your flower and no longer being afraid it will be rejected.” In this, the transitional image, I “pulled” back the structure to reveal the formerly hidden form.” What a relief to finally say, “Here I am, a woman, with a woman’s body and a woman’s point of view.”-Judy Chicago in her piece of
In this article Rebel Wilson, an Australian comedian, is being called out by Black Lives Matter activists. At the VMAs the comedian attempted to joke about people having problems out of the police but how she dislikes police strippers. She went on to say that she is tired of the injustice, after telling the story of how she hired a police stripper for her grandmother’s birthday and the back massage only lasted for an hour.

This result from the ostracization from society is not a new one, mirrored in the revolutions for civil rights by people of color, women, non heterosexual citizens and anyone that isn’t apart of the dominant group. Anna Mansoon McGinty, a professor in the Department of Geography, Women 's Studies Program, at the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee writes in her article, “Emotional geographies of veiling: the meanings of the hijab for five Palestinian American Muslim women ”,“The first decade of the twenty-first century has witnessed a wave of activism among American Muslim women in the USA…. In response to racialization, discrimination, and exclusion, Arab and South Asian Americans and Muslim Americans in general have become more visible participants.... in public discourses on civil and racial justice. (Naber 2008, 2; see also Cainkar 2009; Nagel and Staeheli 2008).”(qtd. in Mansoon McGinty 683).
