Spotlight

An aspect of the film, Spotlight, that showed me something I had not thought of thoroughly before, was how priests have been molesting young children for decades. Thinking of the Catholic church, your first thought is not to compare the church and molested children.  However, it taught me a new part of the story and…

The Kite Runner – comparison

It opens up our eyes when we hear about the world’s problems from people with a closer connection to these different situations.  The lecture…

“One girl with courage is a revolution”

This is my thoughts and meanings about the movie Girl Rising. It is a film about the benefit of educating girls. The story that made the greatest impression on me during this film was Amina’s story.

Gender equality and quality education

Quality education and gender equality are much better today than it was a couple of years ago.

The actual problem about this…
