Also Rosa was a civil right activist before her arrest. The bus driver how Parks had prior encounter with was James Blake he also demanded that she vacate her seat. But the other problem is that she was not sitting in the only white people area she was sitting in the middle of the bus in those days most people rode in cars or walked and so when Rosa boycotted the bus she was not sitting there because her feet were tired.

(“Women’s Rights”, March 25 2013) This movement, also known as the Women’s Liberation Movement “aimed to dismantle traditional attitudes towards sexuality, family and reproductive rights, while also raising awareness of sexual harassment and violence. It also fought to end discrimination against women in the workplace and other sectors of American society.” (“Women’s Rights”,
The social evil ordinance didn’t allow for street prostitution and it funneled much that activity indoors. For instance, the Chief of Police, James McDonough, stated in his annual report of 1872 that the number of street prostitutes “have been almost entirely discontinued” and child prostitution “has been greatly diminished, if not wholly removed.” These results should have spurred further debate as to how to modify their regulatory system to include common-sense, middle-ground compromises to ensure the women’s basic rights.
