    Over the time thousands of bloody wars fought for the sakes of land, money, and goods. Debatably, the most brutal wars have been fought for something much less materialistic: equality. Although most American citizens are lucky enough to live in a country striving toward equality more than ever before, equal opportunity is still far from being something felt by all.

The article looked at an “invisible barrier” that kept women from advancing past certain points in their careers. And although the timestamp on this particular news article may make the issue sound outdated, it has proven to be timeless. According to The Civil Rights Monitor, although 57 percent of the workforce is…

    While I was growing up, I didn’t think the issue of women’s rights will ever affect me. My mom always talked about how much women are treated unequally. But at the age of fifth-teen, I finally realized how much I really do need women’s rights in my life. Not only did I feel it personally, but watching it happen all around me. “I raise up my voice-not so I can shout, but so that those without a voice can be heard…we cannot succeed when half of us are held back.” This quote by Malala Yousafzai…

Postcolonialism critiques the knowledge that the…
