theorist and ardent advocate of forced sterilization. She also had an affair with H. G. Wells, the self-avowed champion of “liberal fascism.” Her marriage soon fell apart and one of her children, whom she had admitted to neglecting, died of pneumonia at the age of four. She always acknowledged that she wasn’t right for family life, admitting she was not a “fit person for love or home or children or anything which needs attention or consideration” (Hemschemeyer.)
In 1921, Sanger established the American Birth Control League, a precursor to today's Planned Parenthood and served as president until 1928. Under the banner of “reproductive freedom,” she worked to ban reproduction of the unfit and

specific. Gender roles can be easily viewed throughout texts from the 1600s and 1700s such as Tartuffe by Moliere, Candide by Voltaire and Story of the Duchess of C*** by Mary S. Trouille, proving that over time these roles of women being viewed as unequal to man have stayed stagnant just to maintain tradition.
According to the Oxford Dictionary and Planned Parenthood, gender roles are the roles or behavior learned by a person as appropriate to their gender, determined by the prevailing cultural norms or, how we’re expected to act, speak, dress, groom, and conduct ourselves based upon our assigned sex. This all means that there is a supposed specific way that each gender has to behave in

are too uncomfortable to discuss sexuality, and sexual health. The negative effects of avoiding these important discussions fall on the education programs for young students, and the state of healthcare for women specifically. The way sexuality and sex health has been discussed in this country creates a sex-negative culture, which ultimately leads to legislations constricting women’s health options, and defunding agencies like Planned Parenthood[footnoteRef:9]. The issues of sexuality and sexual health in society today can all be stemmed back to the education we provide our young students in k-12, college, and even medical school. ASHA, American Sexual Health Association, has been working to

Ernest Hemingway’s Hills like White Elephants
The short story Hills like White Elephants by Ernest Hemingway is a story about a man and woman who are sitting at a bar at a small train station somewhere in Spain. They seem to be having a heated conversation about a mysterious “operation”. The author never explicitly says what the issue is between the man and woman, but it can be assumed it is about a huge and personal decision they have to make because of the literary devices the author uses. Throughout the story the author hints at what the mysterious operation really is. Hemingway uses symbolism, setting, and imagery to convey

Walter Freeman and the Invention of the Lobotomy
In Steely Library’s digital archives, one of the postcards from the Gilliam family collection is entitled Western Kentucky Asylum for the Insane, Hopkinsville, KY. The postcard dates back to 1915 and portrays a beautiful building, complete with red bricks and white columns. Many of the insane asylums around this time were built similarly, but even their picturesque exterior could not hide the horrors which occurred within. Insane asylums built in the early to mid 1900s were still getting on their feet, and many of them encountered problems with patient care early on

When I was a child, my late father and I would spend every moment of the summer season on
the sparkling white sand of the beach near our home. We would dance, kicking up the shiny
surface so that the droplets glimmered like diamonds in the sunlight. We would lie on our backs
and stare at the sky, until the swirling clouds began to take on our imaginative shapes mingled
together by our fantastical minds. We would grip imaginary weapons and fight, thrusting swords
like the most violent of fantasy pirates. These unforgettable days went on and on, a never ending
cycle of blue skies, imprinted forever in my mind. My earliest memories are filled with images
of my father in these

How much of a threat does the robotics revolution represent for human employment in New Zealand in the next 30 years?
In order to understand the threats that robotics may pose to human employment in the future, it is important to examine the ways in which robots and computerization are already influencing different employment industries today, and how they have changed our labor practices in the past. If this information is then compared with current trends and statistics in New Zealand’s employment market conclusions can be drawn about how robotics might influence New Zealand employment in the next thirty years.
Evolution in employment methods has been seen in the

Comparison Between the Portrayal of Tom Buchanan and Jay Gatsby in Chapters 1 to 6
Fitzgerald purposefully portrays Jay Gatsby and Tom Buchanan in contrasting ways to emphasise the variety of money within the American market, during the era in which the novel is set. A major difference between the two men is ‘new money’ and ‘old money’, where Gatsby represents ‘new money’, but Daisy and Tom represent ‘old money’. The contrast between the two comes down to where the money originated from; "Old money" families have fortunes dating from the 19th century or before, have built up powerful and influential social connections and tend to hide their wealth and

A home automation system typically connects controlled devices to a central hub or "gateway". The user interface for control of the system uses either wall-mounted terminals, tablet or desktop computers, a mobile phone application, or a Web interface, that may also be accessible off-site through the Internet. Also it will control lighting, climate, entertainment systems, and appliances. It may also include home security such as access control and alarm systems. When they are connected with the Internet, home devices are an important constituent of the Internet of Things.
