Crumpler’s aunt was a woman who spent much of her time caring for sick neighbors and friends. In the beginning of her book, A Book of Medical Discourses, she explained that being surrounded by the work of her aunt is what made her form a liking to relieving the suffering of others, which is what pushed her to go into medicine.

She also brought up how he treats women by saying most people look at the statue of liberty and think of liberty while Donald Trump looks at her and gives her a 4 maybe a 5 if she put down the torch and tablet and changed her hair. What she said there was ridiculous on the account of her husband 's standing with women, which is far far far worse than the mere words Trump has said about women which are said by every man. Also no one has more respect for women than Donald Trump which is proven by the only nice things a woman who was in a pageant he held in 1997 had to say to a news reporter but they didn’t print it because the most media doesn’t want positive remarks towards Trump. In conclusion they both had their ups and downs throughout the night, but the one thing for certain is that it was not like most Alfred E Smith

fter nearly 20 years of being treated like a punchline, Marcia Clark’s story got a feminist re-examination thanks to Ryan Murphy’s “The People vs. O.J.” The miniseries shed light on the misogyny that dominated much of the coverage of Clark when she was prosecuting O.J. Simpson. She was called hysterical; the press and judge criticized her hairstyles and outfits; a tabloid published topless photos sold by an ex. Two decades later, these incidents read as so obviously disgusting that they require a reckoning. Clark deserves to (finally) have a voice, to tell her story on her own terms.
