women right's

Grade: 7 | Year: 2013 Published On: 2013-11-07

What would you do if you could not vote? Own land? Get a proper education? Would you be upset, furious, frustrated or annoyed? That is how most women feel when they heard this. How would you feel if that happen to you and maybe even your daughter? For many years women have been trying to claim their rights while men have many privileges that women do not have. Many countries deny putting women’s rights into action. Everyone is entitled to have freedom especially women. Women’s rights let women be independent and treated fairly. Some of the most common rights they fight for are the right to vote, equal pay, owning land and getting an education. These types of problems usually occur in both under developed and developing countries. Over the years more people are respecting women’s rights. Multiple groups and organization such as IWRP also known as International Women’s Rights Project has been helping establish women’s rights around the globe for over two centuries.

Importance of Adult education

Grade: 11 | Year: 2009 Published On: 2013-10-28

Democracy without education is meaningless. It is education and enlightenment that lifts a nation to the heights of progress and greatness. Unfortunately, the situation as it obtains in India in respect of education is not only distressing but disgraceful and deplorable. At present about 60% of the people in India are illiterate; they cannot differentiate a buffalo from a black mole. Adult education is needed because it is a powerful auxiliary and an essential incentive to primary education. No program of compulsory universal education can bear fruit without the active support and co-operation of adults.

I walk into the classroom. Everyone giggles, and laughs. I try to ignore it. But, it cannot be done. I walk to my seat and sit down. A girl looks at me and whispers "Your'e so ugly today". It doesn't seem fair. I sat, and thought. Is there something wrong with me? Or, am I what they call, "The Victim"?


Grade: 8 | Year: 2013 Published On: 2013-03-16

A few weeks ago people in my school began talking about speeches. I’ve only written a few speeches and did pretty good. But seeing how many different topics there were to choose from, I began to feel discouraged. I never realized how hard it is to write a good speech! Who am I kidding? It’s difficult to write a speech in general. But that’s not why I became discouraged. I became discouraged because I was overwhelmed by all the emotions I felt. Hello teachers, peers and guests my name is Jessica and today I’m going to talk to you about emotions.


Grade: 8 | Year: 2008 Published On: 2012-08-09

Love is known to be one of the most important human values. Everyone wants to love and be loved.
