Women's Rights and Discrimination


Discrimination is the unjust or prejudicial treatment of different categories of people or things, especially on the grounds of race, age, or sex.

How Discrimination Shaped America

Discrimination happens in all different shapes and forms. Discrimination in America mainly affected Women and African-Americans Since these people were being left out so much, they rebelled which cause our country to fix things and become the country that we are now.

How Discrimination Still Affects America Today

Americans bully people and leave them out from some things at school. And also, discrimination against African-American and women is still out there more than you think. Also, there is a lot of discrimination going on in schools these days because kids leave other kids out.

How discrimination is still very common in the outside world today

In other countries, the government could be bad so people really take advantage of it. The hurt other people emotionally by leaving them out or even physically by abusing them. They discriminate with religion, color, race, and even sex, far worse than we do/did in America

Why do people leave others out like this?

People usually leave others out of bully them because the person either doesn't fit in, or they are just jealous of what the other person has. People think that since he has a pretty girlfriend or she has nice earrings that they should leave them out.

Do they really think that it is cool

In the past few years there have been a lot of fight against bullying and other kinds of discrimination. School boards have been starting to realize that kids are starting to be depressed a lot more than they used to because every day at school, they would get bullied. Since there have been a lot of laws passed that involve this in the past few years which makes the people realize that they are doing something very wrong.
Types of Discrimination

Women's Rights

Women's rights are rights that promote a position of legal and social equality of women with men.

What are the major events in history of Women's Rights in America

In 1850: Harriet Tubman joined the Underground Railroad efforts, leading slaves to freedom.

In May, 1869: The National Woman Suffrage Association is founded by Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton

On November 18, 1869, The American Woman Suffrage Association was created.

In 1911: About 3,000 suffrage supporters march in the second New York City parade, with an estimated 10,000 onlookers.

In 1916: Jeannette Rankin becomes the first woman elected to Congress.

On August 26, 1920: The 19th Amendment is quietly signed into law by Secretary of State Bainbridge Colby, granting women the right to vote.

So after all of this work, the women finally earned what they should have. They worked tremendously hard and finally got what they wanted and needed.

Who are some of the major figures supporting women's rights in America currently

Sometimes, there is not just one figure that is supporting and helping with women's rights but it could be groups or even men. For example, there are now women referees in the NFL which there never were before and there are also a lot of sports teams in America that are starting to include girls along with boys so that the girls who want to play sports can do so and not be left out.

Why shouldn't they be doing this?

There is no reason why women shouldn't be trying to get their rights. Women are human beings and things on Earth are all supposed to be equal and there is no reason why women should be discriminated.

How are women treated differently than men in America currently

Women in America get sexually abused very often but it is really starting to decrease based on some new laws that have been created. Women are not really being discriminated as much, but they are being looked at as people who don't know what they are talking about and don't know what they're doing. Women definitely get the short end of the stick with men because men in the world seem like the superiors all the time when a lot of things are being done by women.

How are they fixing this

Instead of rebelling and having strikes, they are doing things more personally and slowly than what they have been doing before. Women are starting to think instead of the down side of things, they are appreciating what they have and why it is so important.

Novel connections

In the Novel, La'Vaughn at the beginning of the story is constantly being discriminated being of what she has which is close to nothing. It is just like how women's rights and discrimination came along but in a short period of time. By the end of the novel it seemed like everyone treated her correctly just like how things are now
