  • Gender Equality In The 1960's

    but not to the extent that it should have. Women have faced various political problems in the United States. Women have been faced with two major political problems: an unbalanced representation of women in politics and various laws that restrict a woman’s right to make a decision regarding her own self. The feminist movement has helped these two political problems, but has not fully solved them because in the 21st century these issues are still currently present. The movement helped women have a better representation because it encouraged women to stand up and speak out against issues that they felt needed to be fixed. These women who stood up for their beliefs and demanded change are the reason that new policies came about. The unequal ratio of women to men in congress and politics still remains but to this day women are still slowly trying to gain political equality. This ties into laws that restrict a woman’s right because the majority of people voting on these laws are men; such as laws regarding abortion and birth control. Since these laws directly affect a woman and not necessarily men, it can be confusing to some as to why the group of people deciding these laws are mainly men. An example of this type of law that was controversial was the anti-abortion law that was put into place in various different U.S. states. The constitutionality of this law was eventually questioned when Roe v Wade occurred in 1973 in Texas. This case was about a pregnant woman who believed that…

  • Critical Thinking Reflection Paper

    For the past few weeks, I have learned about the concept of critical thinking.

The course on critical thinking has allowed me to analyze what I stand for and to recognize, strengthen, and even change my views by taking all sides of an argument into consideration to reach a conclusion. One of the…
