My 5 grade class is studying about women and slaves in history. My fifth grade social studies teacher is letting us read books about slaves and women during the revolutionary and civil wars and how important they are.
I would like to give my opinion on the subject of equal rights. Women and African Americans should have equal rights. Men and slaves had the right to vote before women of any race had the right. Then womenÕs place was in the home which was not right. This might seem boring to others and it may seem a little out of date but in some places this rule is still obeyed. some military academyÕs wont let girls and women stay here just because they are females. Which is not fair.
It is also not fair for these thin actresses to get all the good roles in movies because they are thin and have plastic surgery to get that thin. I have great respect for women like Roseanne and Rosie OÕDonnell who aren't afraid to be a little chubby.
