Are we still fighting for women's rights in the United States?
While we have come a long way in achieving rights for women we are far from equality. The political climate in the United States is still very much male focused. in 2019 only one third of elected officials are women at the local state and federal level. Twenty-two states have never had a female governor (She Should Run). For generations we have been fighting for women's rights, and we still are the right to control our bodies and the right to equality in the workplace (Time). It's now as easy as it ever was to pay women less than their male counterparts if you're employed by the government. Human Rights Watch has said that, "as a result of Trump's roll-backs of various equal pay protections, Large employers and federal contractors will not be required to provide disaggregated information about employees’ compensation to civil rights enforcement agencies." The think tank Center For American Progress said in 2017 that "proposed cuts to federal spending by the government would probably have catastrophic consequences for women who'd survived domestic violence, including limiting the funding for the National Domestic Violence Hotline and the Violence Against Women Act." Women are still fighting for rights, for our bodies, for our political rights, and even for health care. Women's rights have come a long way but we still have a long journey ahead of us.

Explain how European colonization has affected the political climate in India til this day.
According to Harvard's Business School, areas that experienced direct English colonization, still to this day have significantly lower access to education, health care , and roads. Factors like exploitation, and resource depletion have lead to dependency on those doing the colonizing. When the colonizers left India, they left the country with a lack of political structure, as well as a lack of natural resources.
According to the American Anthropological Association, race is considered to be a social construct, but at the same time it has very real implications. Giving examples explain how "race" is not a scientific biological fact, but how it can still affect an individual.
Today it is known that there is more variation between individuals than "racial" groups. Human variation can not be divided into races, it is we are more alike than different rent (AAA). "Race" still has very real social, cultural, and political consequences (Yolanda Moses). For example being African American still has powerful negative effects including educational inequalities as well as language and class barriers (Georgetown University Center for education).
