Equal Rights in the 1900s

Discrimination and Women's Rights

Discrimination

By having black men and women in the south we used them as slaves so we didn't have to do the work. They did it for us. Blacks also couldn't didn't have the rights white people did. Black people couldn't sit on the bus. They had to stand. Rosa Parks didn't stand for that. When a white person told her to get up and go to the back of the bus, she said no. She was arrested and convicted of violating the laws of segregation, known as "Jim Crow laws." This helped a man called Martin Luther King Sr. and Jr. This helped them to campaign there problem against blacks. In the world there is HIV discrimination in the restaurant industry. At Subway recently, a guy was tested HIV positive and they thought that he would be a distraction in the work area so they fired him. Another discrimination fact is that if you are Muslim most people think that you are a terrorists. I think that people judge other people before they meet them because they look at someone and if they look weird they must think that they are weird and not nice to talk to when really they can be a nice person. Like recently in Australia a little girls name is Isis. Her aunt wanted to order her a jar of Nutella but the company wouldn't do it because her name is Isis and people might take it the wrong way. The mother said that she named her daughter after the Egyptian god Isis and had no intention of making the name dirty. The owner of Nutella is judging a five year old girl because of her name.

Womens rights

In the 1800s to 1900s men and women's rights were not equal. When women were married, they were not allowed to own a piece of land. Back then they weren't even allowed to really get a degree or a career. All they did was stay home and tend to the family.Women were not allowed to vote or sign any contract. Women were finally allowed to vote after decades though so that changed. Women are still treated differently than men now. Women weren't allowed to sign up for the military until a few years ago. Women are also treated differently in work places. When they go out to get hired there boss doesn't think they can do it because they are a women and the boss thinks that a man would do better. "When women are successful, they're often called "bitchy" and seen as less likable (Business insider)." There are also different expectations for men and women. People think that men can do more when really sometimes women can do more. Like if you see a big guy and you think he his strong but he really can't lift anything and a women comes over and she lifts more than him. That is why women and underrated. Malala Yousafza wanted to go to school and learn. She got shot in the head by a Taliban gunman. She survived the shot and now she is a spokesperson for womens rights of education
