West Side Story Manhattans West Side Musical
647 wordsWest Side Story is one of the most influential musicals of all time.

I believe the United States has done a nice job of providing equal opportunities so that women have a choice of what they want to do. But not all places have done as well. In Israel, women are badly discriminating by the gender roles ...
