'Law Of The Land': Documentary Analysis

Satisfactory Essays
This event was very effective in portraying it's message. Not only did the documentary use personal stories from women who have been oppressed, but they showed cases in which the United States Supreme Court decided in favor of the oppressors. I was shocked to hear that women were not guaranteed protection under the United States Constitution, a so called "Law of the Land". I do not understand how people can put themselves over others when it comes to things as simple as basic HUMAN rights. I asked my mother, "are you protected under the constitution?" her response, "Isn't everyone?" When I become a lawyer and politician, I hope to one day change the way our laws are misconstrued in order to fit into a company's agenda.
