A issue I care about is sexism, specifically in media because I feel that people today are influenced by what they see in tv and social media with all the trends happening. The entertainment today show off women
Shakespeare talks about race, religion, and sexuality this is why it’s important to learn his stories in school because it’s things that still happen to this day. Some of his stories are still relevant today.
Throughout creating this scene, I learn how to adapt a Shakespeare scene using images like the drink because before killing Desdemona, Othello had a drink. I have also answered the many questions I had fo
Dear Yesenia :
I am angered by your post, “Oakland Police Solutions – A Solution?,” because I as well am in a agreement that oakland police and some police all over the country do abuse their power. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “In the past, many have tried to make police relations better- such as the Black Panther Party…[Read more]
I would suggest using examples for this research. If your looking for a way to prove that women are over sexualized on t.v and on media, then look up pictures. Or even look up debates on the subject. Use both sides of the story and find evidence to support both and see which on you agree with most.
These Olympians are amazing, strong, women, yet the media still makes comments about the outfits they wear while competing instead of their outstanding achievements. They are labeled as so and so’s husband, instead of their own name, etc. Not to mention, the males in the Olympics in some ways overshadowed the women. The ways they were reported in magazines and newspapers made men Olympians out to be more important than women Olympians.
I am interested by your post, “Should Government Fund Education” because I also think the government should be able to fund our education. Countries like Sweden and Germany actually pay you to go to a university and get your education.
One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is that ”to decrease federal funding to other more non e…[Read more]
I agree, I think that sexism is not recognized as a big issue in our society. This may be contributed to the fact that our society has always portrayed women a certain way.

Do you think that sexism is being improved, getting worse, or staying constant in our society?
I am enraged by, your post “Checking Claims In A Wikipedia Article About Sexism,” because this is something that happens everyday and that is very much alive, and it isn’t talked as much as it should be. It something that happens to man and women everyday, especially to women. Women have always been been seen as less than men, but mostly in media.
This is a youth-powered social network that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It's easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other's work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it's been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
