There was a Pakistani girl named Malala Yousafzai who got hurt for saying that women deserve an education in her country. She didn’t care if that’s what her society thought to be acceptable, she knew it wasn’t right and so she rebelled against the whole idea of it. She survived her injuries, and now she protests for women to have a better education. There are a lot of women all over the world just like her that rebel against society’s view of women. In the story, the Awakening, Edna also rebelled against society by freely expressing herself.
Women all over were rounded up and stolen as “prostitutes” (sex-slaves) for the Japanese soldiers. Houses were broken into at random, and girls who were barely old enough to walk, and old women who were so crippled by time that they too could barely walk, were raped in from of their entire families. Women and girls were gang-raped in the streets so violently that those who ruptured and bled out were the lucky ones, for the survivors had to deal with the mental and physical scarring for years to come; a startling number committed suicide. Chang speaks of massive numbers of women a time later who, after giving birth to Japanese babies and were in such emotional turmoil that they threw themselves into the Yangzi River. In homes, incest was forced upon families.
We'd found an old Boche dug-out, and he knew, And gave us hell, for shell on frantic shell Hammered on top, but never quite burst through. Rain, guttering down in waterfalls of slime Kept slush waist high, that rising hour by hour, Choked up the steps too thick with clay to climb. What murk of air remained stank old, and sour With fumes of whizz-bangs, and the smell of men Who'd lived there years, and left their curse in the den, If not their corpses. . .

“The mother was beaten to death. She has dozens of broken bones, a fractured skull, and as you can see, she is not recognizable at all.” The detective was shocked by the brutality of the beating, “Jesus Christ!” he exclaimed. “What about the rest?” “Jim, the father. He was slightly starved, but the cause of death is dehydration.” “It’s like he just neglected him completely… left the bastard to die while killing the rest of ‘em.” The coroner moved to the next set of corpses. They stank and made the air smell rotten.

"Hounding the Innocent" Summary In “Hounding the Innocent” by Bob Herbert talks about how there has been more people being pulled over just so they can be humiliated by the police. The people that are being humiliated are Hispanics and African Americans but it’s really the minorities. The minorities are being stopped for no reason just so they can be seen as the “bad” people.

Most of us might blame the situation of Saudi women on a strict and intolerant religion, a lack of education or even a lack of awareness of Saudi women about their rights. Some of these assumptions may be partially or entirely correct, but why is it that other Muslim countries such as Jordan, treat their women better? Can religion be blamed for the treatment of Saudi women? According to popular belief, the women’s biggest oppressor in Saudi Arabia is the Sharia laws, or Islamic law. Surprisingly Sharia laws ought to have offered liberation to women across Saudi (Rahman p 356-9).
“When I grow up, I’m still going to be a fireman.” Using this as her conclusion and never going into depth about it makes Orenstein’s entire article seem to be a waist on time. She didn’t continue to say well maybe she was wrong or it’s just a phase that they grow through. She just ends it. Orenstein confused her readers and showed that princesses weren’t never really a problem, because throughout the entire article she contradicts herself about it. She blamed Mooney and all of these other things for what was changing the way her daughter and Americas younger generation think and act, but in the end of it all her daughter still says she wants to be a
The values of heritage seem to have been lost with the gain of knowledge when Dee has gone to college. Her actions she displays when she comes home for a visit are shocking to her family. It is almost as if Dee is using them for a show, rather than a visit that has been well overdue. It’s one thing to know what heritage is but another to understand what your heritage is. Mama was always one who could not say “no” to her daughter and she always tried to please her regardless if her daughter appreciated it or not.
