The Progression Of Female Athletes - 1,367 words
Women throughout history have made extreme progress in expanding their rights and freedoms. They have also made it a point to prove that they are as equal as men through their careers, lives, and their athletic abilities. Women have come a long way in becoming well- rounded athletes, but the discrimination is still present. Although they have substantiated themselves in many ways, women are still viewed as inferior to men, especially as athletes. Women have always participated in extracurricular activities, and some even in sports. However, because women were the members in the households who cooked, cleaned, and took care of the family, they were limited to their activities. Women were to b ...

Schools need to make policies so that people will understand the boundaries (Van Biema 61). There are two documentsthat protect and limit prayer in public schools. The obvious one would be the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights; the less known one is the Equal Access Act. This document reads that all federally funded schools have to allow religious meetings if they also host other clubs, not related to the curriculum (Newcomb 1).

A Vision Of Hope In The Industrial Revolution - 1,168 words
The Industrial Revolution was a crucial point in the history of the world, and also a very difficult time to endure, especially for the working class. In the late eighteenth century, a young poet and artist by the name of William Blake became outraged and inspired by the inhumane treatment of young boys called chimney sweeps. Thus he produced a protest in the form of simple poetry. Wicksteed says, Deeper knowledge of Blake will reveal no darkly buried meaning, only a deeper sense in the meaning obvious to all. (Hirsch, 7) This is precisely the case in the protest Blake calls The Chimney Sweeper. Blake utilizes realism, rather than deep symbolism, in the form of imagery to portray the brutali ...
