Since President Trump has started his office, many decisions he has taken has been criticized around the world. Here are the main reasons to oppose his decision.
Trump’s campaign was full of racial remarks. He has chosen Steve Bannon of the white nationalist Breitbart news to be his Chief Strategist. His Attorney General nominee is Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III who was considered unfit as a federal judge in 1986. This was due to his role in various racist incidents. He has shown his hostile attitude towards people of other color, women, immigrants and LGBTQ communities for all these years.
Hostile attitude towards Muslims and immigrants
Jeff Sessions supported Trump’s plan of building a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. He has supported the anti-immigrant legislation for a long time. He has also indicated ban his support on the ban on immigrants from majority Muslim countries. Sessions will thus have the authority to detain and deport millions of immigrants.
Hostile attitude towards Women’s and LGBTQ rights
Jeff Sessions supported the efforts to restrict women’s and LGBTQ rights for many years. He gave his support to the amendment to ban same-sex marriage and doesn’t support reauthorizing the equal pay for women and the Violence Against Women Act.
These decisions and many others have given rise to lots of opposition and criticism regarding Trump and his Cabinet’s decisions. Many people believe that the democratic rights of people have been deeply affected.…
Four male undergraduates from North Carolina State University designed a nail polish that would detect unwanted drugs in a woman’s drink. All she needs to do is stir the drink with a finger. The drink would change color if GHB, a common type of date rape drug, is added. This is a great step taken by these guys to fight rape. The number of rape incidents has been on the rise. Here are three ways we can solve the rape problem in our society.
1. Teach men that they shouldn’t rape
We should teach men not to rape women. Women should buy products that will make them safer. As the four young guys from North Carolina State University, men should take responsibility regarding their behavior. They should become the advocate to speak against rape.
2. Make sure the legal system doesn’t blame women for rape
In most cases, rapists don’t spend a day in jail. They go out free. The legal system, in some cases, goes against the victims instead of the rapist. An Australian jury lets a rapist go free as the victim was wearing ‘skinny jeans.’ These perspectives must change. The legal system should give justice to the people.
3. Improve campus administration to deal with sexual assault
Rape is very common on college campuses. 1 in 5 college women become a victim of rape. There should be clear college reporting system so that the rate of rape cases decrease. If the administrative response can be strengthened in colleges, then the incidents of sexual assault on campus will decrease.
By taking these steps, we will be able to lower the number of rape incidents that take place in colleges and the society. Rapists must be punished severely so that they don’t repeat this type of act in future.
Many people in the world are still deprived of education. The world is improving, the living standard of people is getting better, but some countries are still much behind in this race of progress. There are still many countries that don’t let women the right to education. Here is a list of such countries.
In many places in India, virginity and purity are more important than education. Also, due to the poor economic condition of the country, many girls have to work at a very young age to support the family. So, they cannot get a proper education.
The Khmer Rouge came to power in 1970; the entire educated class was eradicated in Cambodia. The education of most women stops before, or the moment they reach puberty. Only 15% of the women in this country seek higher education. The majority of women has to suffer from domestic violence, work in rice fields, or work as prostitutes from the age of 13.
We had a clear picture of the education system of Pakistan when Malala Yousafzai was attacked by the Taliban. In Pakistan, the rate of educated women is one of the lowest in the world. More than half of Pakistani girls are not educated. It also has the second lowest rate of female employment.
Afghanistan is one of the hardest places to live for a woman. It is found that 9 out of 10 women are illiterate in Afghanistan. About 40% of girls there attend elementary school, and 1 in 20 girls study beyond the sixth grade.
These shocking findings show that the light of civilization hasn’t reached many parts of the world yet. The violence against women continues to grow in many parts of the world.
