Girl Power By: Layara, Alyssa, and Erika

When it comes to sexism, the first thing that comes to mind is men and women not being able to have the same rights. Women deserve the same rights and opportunities that men are able to have. For example, men get paid more than women do, there is no specific reason behind why men do, but men are usually favored over women. Women are seen as weak and undeserving. Also, women can come off as being too moody, pushy, or bossy even though it's not our intention, people will just assume what they want. Women are told they can't do this, or they can't wear that, but men can practically do whatever they want in this society. Women are seen as sex objects and are seen to only be there for a man's pleasure. There is a lot of things that need to change, but Hillary Clinton almost became president, which is a step in the right direction. Also Susan B. Anthony was an American social reformer and women's rights activist who played a pivotal role in the women's suffrage movement. Also, Rosie the Riveter is a cultural icon of the United States, representing the American women who worked in factories and shipyards during World War II, many of whom produced munitions and war supplies, which shows that women can do a "man's" job. Next, Ariana Grande is an open feminist and speaks openly about women's rights and how they should be important to everyone. Ariana Grande also went to the Women's March in Los Angeles with her mom, grandma, and older brother. I also went to a Women's March in Oakland, and it was very inspiring to see so many women and men standing up against inequality.
