Generally, in the past, women in Upper Canada lived according to their social classes and most of all, according to the norms that society has dictated on them. Women who possess wealth, power, and influence are relatively treated differently by society as compared to the women who belong to the lower class. Aside from social status, another major factor that determines how women were treated in Upper Canada in the past was their race or color. It is well-known that during that time non-whites were generally considered as the lower forms of human beings while the white people were the superior ones. In the past, those who were not members of the white race or in other words, the minority, were discriminated. However, while the treatment towards minority groups was the same for both genders, the actions of and perceptions toward women was significantly different.read more
Dances had been a part of every country’s culture. Often times, dances are being held to mark a significant event or occasion and these are more likely to be inclined in religious and social functions. Like any other remarkable indigenous dances, powwow dances are held to gather American Indians signalling the end of a season and meeting the beginning of a new one (Our History). In this event, Native Americans congregate to give thanks for the good happenings of the past season and ask for the persistence of such prosperity for the coming season. Such dances are entertaining to be seen but in the viewpoint of the dancers and the elders, it holds a sacred meaning.
The Powwow is a collection of various dances which is basically composed of several dances including men's traditional dance, men’s fancy dance, men’s grass dance, women’s traditional dance, women’s fancy shawl dance, tiny tots dance and the women’s jingle dress dance (Powwow dances). Each and every dance is distinct from one another and depicts different stories and meanings. Movements or steps in the mentioned dances also varies and are performed by dancers within different age range (one of the dances is performed by children aged six and below).
Eleanor (1996) has pointed out that the women’s right to vote was one of the key issues covered under the women's suffrage movement and it refers to the economic and political reform movement that was aimed at the right to vote for women. Blackburn (1 April 1999) argues that the manufacturing industry opposed women’s suffrage because they knew if the rights were granted, women would prohibit child labor, women slavery, and sweat shops.read more
The women’s right movement during the 19th century was concerned with women suffrage. In the 1800s women were becoming more educated, their roles were slowly shifting as society gradually adjusted to intellectual women who knew politics and other concerns previously under the male’s domain. This awakening period made most of these educated women question the norms, especially their lack of stand during elections. The movement at this time was focused on the right to vote, as the fighters believe that winning suffrage will just be the beginning of other women’s right in the society. It was also a struggle to prove that women can be just as good as men.read more

Human trafficking is not a novel issue that the Southeast-Asian region is faced with. In fact, it is noteworthy that this issue has been haunting this part of Asia for years now.

The Things They Carried is a novel describing the War in Vietnam as seen by a soldier who is both the narrator and the protagonist of the 22 stories that make up the book. Although the events are fictional, it is worth noting that the author, Tim O’Brien – who is also the narrator/character – was deployed in Vietnam, so the descriptions of events and people are done using very realistic details, a technique called verisimilitude, which gives the novel a sense of authenticity. Women appear to play a small role in the novel but in fact they are crucial both to the story and the character. Present or not, named or unnamed, the role of women is incredibly important to understanding not only the novel itself, but particularly the characters. Thesis statement: the women in The Things They Carried are idealized by men and this ideal image is seen as a means of surviving the war, but in the end, their ideals are shattered by reality.read more
America has a very rich and interesting history. America’s history has been filled with both triumphs and tragedies. In fact, it seems that America’s tragedies have become its triumphs as well. This is due to the fact that through all of its ups and downs America has had its share of heroes. Nobody will forget George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Abraham Lincoln. In addition, nobody will ever forget Martin Luther King Jr. for his courageous crusade during the Civil Rights Movement. We will also never forget Rosa Parks for her bravery by refusing to give up her seat on a bus to a white passenger. We remember Rosa Parks’ bravery and she was a hero. However, it seems that on balance throughout American history while the media has focused on the events that have shaped the world and covered the heroes of those events, it has glossed over or completely ignored the unsung heroines over these events. Sadly, the media has not changed a bit when women heroines are concerned especially concerning events at Ground Zero after New York was attacked by terrorists.read more
