The law of the land instructs murder of those that deserve it. The law can inform our federal government with ways to deal with people that are convicted of a crime. The rule breakers publicize to the world as being criminals and they are forced to be shape into a new system. If the crimes are a taboo, then a stricter punishment will follow. That strict punishment adds death into the equation. Our federal system supports rules that are created by the justice department. The rules are people that are convicted of horrible crimes such as, raped murder, and arm robber to a higher degree, should be placed on death row. Not only that, but our federal government wants the punishment of the death penalty to be a warning to those that are
Another thing that I thought about after watching this documentary is what my mom has told, my mom tells me that “Jerome you can be right all you want but if you don’t be quiet you can get caught up in situations” and this documentary has opened my eyes to this because once I feel that i’m right there is nothing that you can tell me and I would try to prove you wrong, but after watching this i’m going to have to change my ways. Another thing that I’ve heard a lot was “the top 10% ruled the country” after hearing about ALEC 80% of me believes this, I mean Alec has proposed a lot of the bills that we have today. Overall I feel that this documentary was very informative and has opened my eyes wider on the issue of
The documentary "Before Stonewall" was very educational and interesting because it shows a retail group that fought for the right to integrate into the society and was where the homosexual revolution occurred. Also, through this fight, the "LGBT" was born. The documentary shows how homosexual people enjoyed and shared with each other. Also, the documentary shows their participation in World War II and how the government discriminated and oppressed them even denying the right to federal
Although most of the material was that in the movie related to something we have learned previously in the course, it still offered new insight to certain aspects. One of the things I liked most about the documentary was as stated before was its ability to incorporate relatively everything we learned in the class. Such as having people from other documentaries, books and articles. Another thing I liked about the documentary was how despite reviewing a lot of material, it also gave real-life accounts of what was going on during that time. Overall the documentary sparked the interest in me to understanding more about how minorities, homosexuals, and hemophiliacs were treated before after and during the AIDS
When hearing the topic “Comfort Women” that would be discussed at the presentation being held in the ABC building and thoughts ran through my head that it would be about programs that created were created to help women all over the world that may need comfort for situations that may be going on in their family. Come to find out “Comfort Women” actually has to do with women and girls who were forced into sexual slavery for the Japanese soldiers during World War 2. Hearing something like this is very heartbreaking and disturbing especially because it is something I have never heard about. It is inhumane to hold someone as a sex slave and it is basically stripping them of their natural born human rights. Though I do not know the right those who
The historic march on Washington was a call of humanity to the world. It was a turning point in the American history after the abolishing of slavery. African American women struggled for justice and equality to be given to all mankind but, unfortunately, women were forgotten. They were stripped of all their rights, when men got all the benefit. African American men, who supposed to be their nature supporters and protectors, also turned their back at them. Women found themselves all alone facing the society constraints that were hemmed upon them. Despite the significant contribution women made toward the struggle for equal right, they had no representation in most of the March activities and their issues were not addressed. They were concerned that they would not get their fair share benefits from the struggle.
During the researching process we contacted three major people who were involved in the protest, Mrs. Carol Hanisch who was one of the organizers of the protest, Mrs. Terry Meeuwsen who was an anti-protester, and most importantly, Mrs. Judith Ford Nash who was the Miss America Winner in 1968. We had a facetime call with Mrs. Ford who told us all about how she found out about the protest and how she reacted to it. Mrs. Hanisch told us all about why the Women’s Liberation Movement chose 1968 to do the protest and all about her experience throughout the protest. And lastly Mrs. Meeuwsen told us about her experience anti-picketing the pageant and defending the pageant. She ended up going back to Atlantic City and winning the Miss America Pageant. We also
As this campaign kept getting bigger and spreading to different cities the first two years, the organizers used this as a easy way to find new ways to spread this campaign all around the world. This also helped give African Americans faith that there is other people out there that go through the same sort of things on a daily basis. Also that there is people trying to make a difference, trying to stop the discrimination. Tamir Rice, Tanisha Anderson, Mya Hall, Walter Scott, Sandra Bland these names are just some of the women
The 1963 March on Washington was one of the most memorable events of the Civil Rights Movement. Thousands of U.S. citizens of various racial backgrounds gathered in the nation's capital to protest the racial inequality prevalent in U.S. society during that time. Of the numerous speakers and civil rights organizations represented, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "I Have A Dream" had the most impact on the minds of Americans because it challenged U.S. citizens to consider the nation's future without racial equality. However, while King and other March speakers spoke of racial equality for all members of the human race, the voice of one very important group was denied its say. Women, particularly black women, were not given the opportunity to participate directly in the March.
Throughout all of these speeches there was one idea and that idea was freedom amongst all. At this time it was hard for certain people to get the freedom and equality they deserved. Each speaker gave their own opinions towards how they feel about the roles women play like how they get treated, and how they should be looked at, and if they should be granted the same rights as men, and in reality they should be allowed the same rights I mean no matter what their gender is they are still human. Which shows that women are just as important as men, they should have the same rights as men and should be able to work and voice their opinions. They should be able to have a job that doesn't keep them home all day cleaning and cooking for the family. They should not be looked down upon for being a girl because if you think about it women play a huge role in
Despite my overall positive opinion of the documentary, I did have some problems with the documentary. I feel that the documentary does not effectively focus in on the ideologies that defined the movement. They are mentioned occasionally but I felt like they should have been woven more thoroughly into the narrative like gray area between Black Power, socialism, and Marxism theories. Also, there seem to be a large focus on that type of sensationalized media that we are always warned about in this course. The division between Newton and Cleaver sections was portrayed in my opinion as a superficial squabble not a true conflict of ideology and the direction of the movement. Instead of just focusing on their public quarrels like the phone calls maybe they could have interviewed more people that chose a side and their reasonings behind doing that. In addition to interviewing those people, I think the documentary would have benefitted from interviews by more women. The documentary states that women were a large portion of the “rank and file” but if I am recalling correctly less than seven were interviewed in comparison to far more men. Nelson made it seem like the themes of gender and sexuality in the movement would be explored but it barely skated the surface like where was the discussion of womanism in the movement. I think that is a big problem that
In my opinion I believe that it is important to remain progressive when it comes to culture, media, and morally correct laws. Therefore, I found this documentary more interesting to watch, rather than upsetting. It was amazing to see how media and advertisement changed over time based on what was trending. Because this documentary is
This was the Million Women March on Washington the day after Donald Trump’s inauguration. There were over 500,000 people present for this march. In this march, no one was arrested in Washington and it was a peaceful event. The main purpose for this march was to proclaim women’s, and other communities such as LGTBQ’s, civil rights. This was caused by the President elect’s comments on women’s rights. There were performances and activists present. This march wasn’t just on Washington, it was worldwide in cities such as Paris, Berlin, Sydney, etc. Just Like Martin Luther King Jr., the Million Women’s March brought about a positive awareness of women’s civil
During the 1970’s most fail to recognize how the women’s liberation movement resurrected the “woman question. This has then done the job of rebuilding our world with being more conscious of the exploitation and oppression of women. Women never had a strong voice and were never heard. When the mass movements in the 70’s created a differentiation along class and political lines women’s liberation have come to be dominated by a middle class leadership. The whole idea for this era was to raise conscious levels of organizing around someone’s own oppression. Most women around this time had a difficult time admitting that they had been oppressed, when in reality countless numbers of women and not only been oppressed but gathered a larger amount of frustration, anger and bitterness. In Fact while reading the rise and demise of
She touched on the statistics that 1-10 husbands beat their wives, they have no safe house to escape too and there weren’t many faculties for abused women to go to, to seek help. She started the movement on ‘violence against women’ in BC. At some point in the video they mentioned as a female we are told we should not there we are free to walk around the streets thinking we have the freedom/choice to be treated equally in our career and dear to speak out on an issue. But as women, it is important not to be blinded and to take a stand not only for us to for the equality of other women of our
