    There is so much problems on the planet that could be overcomed by stronger wills of inhabitants. Most problems that we face nowadays are caused by men “cleverness” that sometimes can be very destructive. The planet is starting to age, because of her tiredness of men’s fights. Citizens, children, women, men, foreigners are tagged, but  now it is time to stop putting names on what we see and start being one whole that support each other. Oxfam

In my latest project, I studied what are the problems in our everyday lives that keep us from going forward in the gender equality matter. I looked at impartial articles on gender studies, men's studies and sociology to find the general causes of gender inequality in our social environment and found out that the major factors in that issue were that women are expected to work a double shift of work when they get home because of gender role. Also gender generalization in our society prevents us from being equal with everybody who doesn't fit the mold our society puts them into.

Education has been my main subject on News Activist. I wrote about the issues concerning women, students and teachers in the educational environment. In this last post, I will introduce you to the inequalities of the women’s post-education and, then, I will introduce you to an event I have went to called “Marche Monde” organized by Oxfam Québec.

Words are very important. They allow us, amongst many other things, to communicate our thoughts, feelings, and ideas. Some words, however, are more delicate than others, especially when they define someone’s identity or have a very heavy and dark past such as “faggot” or “nigger”.

In my previous posts about education, I talked a lot about children and their literacy. Today, I will be focused on the situation of the teachers, more precisely, on the International Summit on the Teaching Profession of 2016.

Serious problems are all around the world. Some of them like the environment or the poverty are more important than loosing a hockey game or braking a IPhone. We are so stuck with our own belly button that we can not see what is outside and owe us to understand it even for a minute. First of all, lets see how serious the problem is.

South Korea’s schools are killing their students. Physical and psychological issues are hitting the learners in an exaggerated overwhelming way. For instance, the article “The Assault Upon our Children” by See-Wong Koo directly says: “Among young South Koreans who confessed to feeling suicidal in 2010, an alarming 53 percent identified inadequate academic performance as the main reason for such thoughts.” Koreans might be part of the smartest kids in the world by belonging to the class that has among the highest ranks on international education tests.

        The advertisement shows a woman wearing nothing but leggings. Thankfully, the advertisement itself “American Apparel” covers her private parts. The photograph appears to be taken in a home on a sofa covered with blanket, so that it looks like a bed. Sex happens on the bed which could be why she is there. The image incorrectly portrays woman in many ways: the advertisement contains partial nudity, creates an unattainable “perfect” body, send the message that woman should be sexy, is problematic to youth, is sexually suggestive, and invites the audience “in” with explicit imagery.

Some of them are irreversible and only get worse as some cancer or as Alzheimer, but others are curable like the influenza and other type of cancer. Recently, Quebec passed a bill called “Bill 52”. This law makes it legal to a doctor to help a patient dying with the patient’s authorization.

The article ‘’ The effects of pollution on fish health’’ published on December 1998, on the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), the US National Library of Medicine, suggest that the large number of deaths in marine animals are caused by all the pollutants and the heavy metals  released in the water by the humans. The pollutants released into the water do affect marine animals that live there but also, on a long-term, will affect us. It can leads to a lot of incurable diseases.

It is commonly known that the conditions of education in Quebec have recently been subjected to some changes. Students took to the street to manifest their discontent about their rights. Although they had good reasons to disapprove the government proposition, some countries do have more to complain about. South Africa is a good example of it.

            Canada may have a very high rate of enrolement for post-secondary education, but it does not erase it’s multiple flaws. The three major flaws that have been increasing noticed among the federal government has been: the accessibility, the quality of education, and financing education in general. An article that was written a while back “Education in Canada: Current Issues” by Helen McKenzie published in May 1994 brought the attention of Canadians to acknowledge that the educational system is better than before, but has a long way to go till it can be percieved as perfect.
