We as an American society can all work together to help change some of our ways. To help decrease the discrimination and oppression on many different socio-cultural groups. We are a country of one and need to remember that when we’re talking about others. I was really inspired by the video posted about the Women Before Us. I thought that was a very powerful piece and I am proud of the way the woman in the video expressed herself. She talked about how she was taught by her mother to use her voice and express her choice. I thought that was wonderful. After being a part of this class and learning about the different types of discrimination and oppression, advantages and privileges, I myself will make sure that my voice will be used to help stop this trend. I feel that by using my voice and providing good examples for the younger individuals in my life, I will be able to affect these people and influence them in a positive way. I can explain what I’ve learned through this class and try to open their eyes. I may even show them some of the videos presented or even lend them the textbooks used. I think it’s very important that we spread the word and use our voices as a powerful way of doing that along with our actions. I will use what I’ve learned in my life to help me survive and know that I’m helping make the world a better place. When I leave this world I will feel like I’ve achieved something by helping those in hard times and experiencing these types of pain. I will be able to rest easy knowing that someone who used to experience oppression that doesn’t anymore will be able to rest easy as well.
