When Life Hands You Lemons

You Take Them

How discrimination has effected and shaped America in the past:

  • In the past blacks were made fun of most of all.
  • Colleges started to accept more blacks into schools.
  • Asians and other people from different countries weren't welcome into the US easily.
  • Now everyone is welcome and blacks/different races are more accepted.

Examples of Discrimination in the World currently:

  • Some colleges still do not allow blacks or other races to be accepted into their college
  • In the workplace different races still get paid more than other race groups
  • Gender is also affected and can get paid less than others
  • Women are treated worse than men in the workplace and can get paid less

Examples of discrimination in America Currently:


  • Different races aren't allowed into certain colleges because of their skin color
  • Different religions are discriminated on, and some aren't even allowed to show any religious acts in public
  • People from different cultures or countries can be hated on for what they wear and for what they look like, just because they're different

Why people judge in school:

  • People with disabilities can be made fun of for how they're different.
  • At school you can be made fun of even for your political beliefs.
  • Religion, race, age, gender, and students with mental illnesses are judged very hard on in many schools.
I believe people judge one another because someone may not be or act like many other students. I believe discrimination and bullying in schools is awful because everyone is unique. People shouldn't be made fun of or excluded from things because they were born a certain way. They were born this way for a reason.

Women's rights:

  • Women aren't allowed to purchase their own property, vote, or even wear what they want in the United Nation
  • In Turkey, there's no protection for women being abused, so they are stuck in this dangerous situation
  • In Saudi Arabia women are not allowed to drive
  • Yemeni women are the least empowered women in the world
  • In Nepal, if a woman is raped or assaulted, the perpetrator isn't punished, or arrested

Major events in women's rights in the history of America:

  • In 1903 The National Women's Trade Union League is established to advocate for improved wages and working conditions for women.
  • Margaret Sanger founds the American Birth Control League, which evolves into the Planned Parenthood Federation of America in 1942.
  • In 1960 The Food and Drug Administration approves birth control pills.
  • California becomes the first state to adopt a "no fault" divorce law, which allows couples to divorce by mutual consent. By 1985 every state has adopted the similar law. Laws are also passed regarding the equal division of common property.

How women are treated differently than men in America currently:

  • In the workplace, men tend to get better treatment and more pay than women do
  • Pregnant women are not allowed to work at all, because then they are considered "disabled".
  • Women are judged for a lot of things such as being overweight, having a messy home, and even if they don't have children they are discriminated on.

How women are treated differently than men in the world currently:

  • In Saudi Arabia women do not have a lot of freedom to move around a lot. They aren't even allowed to drive.
  • Women in the Middle East don't have the right to pass citizenship on to their children, where men have the ability to pass it to their children and non-national wives.
  • In Turkey, the UK, and Slovakia, women are allowed to serve in the army, but not allowed to serve in front line combat.
  • In some countries the courts automatically grant custody rights to the father, and the women are left without any means of financial support
