  • Ronnie, there are so many things that I agree with from your post. I liked how you said the issue of reproductive rights use to be “black and white”. It also frustrated me that there are two sides to this argument but neither side cares to make much progress with this issue. You may find this article helpful with future research: htt…Read More

    • Liv, I really enjoyed this because this is something that is relevant in our lives as women. I agree that we need to start being paid the same as men because it is only fair. We work just as hard or even harder and we still aren’t recognized for our duties.

    • Olivia,I am in awe of your insight. This is a question that I wished in 2018 we would not have to ask. I liked the fact that you included research and statistics of how women are excelling in education, “women were projected to get 58% of masters and bachelor’s degrees, and over half of PhD degrees for the 2011-2012 academic year”; yet still get paid less than men. The sad part is that in some industries, women who have higher degrees than their male counterparts still get paid less. How can this change? Will it ever change?

  • Treyvone,
    I really enjoyed your post and agree with everything you said. I found it interesting that you said we are becoming desensitised to the world around us at the beginning. I think that when we are accustomed to seeing certain things everyday, that we may not see if we did not have technology, we become used to it and do not necessarily…Read More
