The author’s challenging of other historical viewpoints were two different thoughts to be. The Indians believed that it was alright for the same sex to marry each other while the spanish thought is was inconsiderate to do.

I suggest people to read I am Malala by Malala Yousafzai with Patricia Mccormick because this books talks about women's rights and it is a well known example of a historic event about how women stood up for each
