Question Description

I have been debating on how to structure this discussion given the current political climate as well as all the issues that are being discussed in the news, including:

  • Black Lives Matter
  • Protesting the flag or the anthem
  • #Metoo Movement
  • Women's rights and the glass ceiling
  • Women's sexuality and the role of government and society in its regulation (including abortion)
  • Confederate flag and statues as a symbol of the south, not racism
  • The rise of the alt-right as a symbol of racism or nationalism
  • Bans on immigration of certain groups and/or registering them
  • Guns rights vs. regulation
  • Gender neutral bathrooms

Some of the issues of the mid-1800s have not been thoroughly resolved, or have given rise to new predicaments, or are lessons from which we can learn much about the enduring crises of our democratic society. So, I would like to take this final discussion and tie what you learn in Unit 5 to a current issue.

Step 1:

  • You will research and select 5 current events articles from respectable media outlets.
    • These articles can be from liberal, moderate or conservative media SO LONG AS they fall within the gray circle that says "Great Sources of News" and the green oval that says "Great In-Depth Sources of News" in the attached image.
    • NOTE: I do not count media outlets outside of the above circles as wholly and/or consistently credible, therefore, they should not be referenced in your discussion.

Step 2:

  • After reading the current events articles, create a minimum 750-word post to discuss the controversial topic you chose, as well as the articles you read that will be used to support your discussion (you must cite them throughout your discussion - not just when you use a quote).
  • Make sure to tie the current event back to the history of the time period studied in Unit 5 (or a previous unit as appropriate). Nothing exists in isolation! Make the connections across time like a historian. Underline these connections when you make them.
  • YOU MUST POSE A HIGH LEVEL, OPEN ENDED QUESTION TO GENERATE DISCUSSION - BOLD THIS QUESTION.
  • Please do not ask questions such as "What would have happened if ____ didn't happen?" Credible historians deal with what happened, not alternative history or what could have happened. Questions that can be answered with a simple Yes/No or Agree/Disagree do not count as high level/thought provoking.
  • Quotes should be limited to 0 or 1 and not more than 15 words long.
  • Provide in-text citations and create a Works Cited list in MLA format at the end. DUE WEDNESDAY, 5/1 BY 11:59 PM.

MAKE SURE TO PUT YOUR TOPIC ON THE SUBJECT LINE OF THE POST SO OTHERS KNOW WHAT YOU ARE WRITING ABOUT.

Introduction
Media houses are concerned with the discussion of the current political climate as well as
addressing issues of concern in the society. During such debates, dominant themes have been
revolving on issues such as gender roles, race, national security and other equality that affects
people in the society. It is not surprising that some of the issues being discussed were
experienced in the mid-1800s and have either transformed or persisted to current days. This
paper will analyze 5 current issues from reputable media outlets and link them to past historical
occurrences as well as asking an emerging question on the discussed issues.
Women’s sexuality and the role of government and society in regulation
One of the most analyzed issue in The New York Times is that Caster Semenya Loses case
to Compete as a Woman in All Races. According to the reports on 1st May 2019, the female
athlete must decrease testosterone hormone levels in order to participate in major Olympic
participation (The New York Times, pA1). This decision was arrived at following the 800m
Olympic champion winner who had challenged the proposed limitations to naturally elevated
testosterone hormones that enhance the mescaline performance among females. In a 2-to-1 Swiss
court ruling, decided that the testosterone homes levels act against female participation on major
field events.

The May 1 ruling can be traced back to The Women’s Right Movement, 1848-1920 where
women suffrage leaders' debate overtook their presentation to the Congress (O’Connor, p657).
The federal state was held in a dilemma to support reforms for equal women presentation as well
as considering violations of their rights that were advocated by activists like Jeannette Ranking.
Although the previous cases were on women oppression, the current event...
