    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.

I have decided to do my volunteer work with an organism related to homelessness. After doing some research on the volunteer opportunities close by, I chose to contact the Accueil Bonneau situated in the old Montreal. This organism has as a goal to welcome any homeless person or anyone who is at risk of homelessness by daily journeying with that person in responding to his basic needs and helping him achieve a better quality of life and well-being. The work I did there was to serve the people who came to have a lunch during the second service of the day.

  Lately, I have been working on inequalities we can find in the world. In fact, inequalities find anywhere in our daily life: we are indeed all subject to inequalities. To slow down their spread, many people put forward ideas all around the world. One woman is distinguishing herself by her flawless speeches and her work towards women’s rights: Emma Watson.

Inequalities have always been part of our world; some people will always have more than their neighbor. Indeed, the organization Oxfam recently released a report proclaiming that “48% of all global wealth is now held by the top 1% [of the world population]”. As individual, we try to understand this problematic and to slow down its growth. To do so, most of the time, we turn ourselves to the mass media. However, most of them tend to draw only a negative picture of the planet’s economic situation and don’t offer any relevant information concerning the resolution of the issue.

Since we are little, we are aware that we are lucky to have the lifestyle we live daily. We also know that other kids in poorer countries cannot have this chance. Indeed, on January 18th 2016, Oxfam published a report about inequalities and poverty worldwide. This report reveals that more than 25% of the money made in United Kingdom annually is in fact owned a thin percent of the British population.

  In the article "Let's Welcome Refugees Generously, but Abandon Multiculturalism", published in the Montreal Gazette on September 15, 2015, the lawyer Julius H. Grey share his opinion about the attitude of our societies towards the refugee waves in the world. He explains why people should be more open to taking refugees. Most of people are not open to this idea. They think that those people will steal their job, bring problems or destroy their culture. It is clear that those refugees are hard-working in the majority and they are themselves running away from problems.

     Recently, a lot of serious problems have been happening all over the world. Do you know anything about refugees? I think the refugees’ problem is the most serious problem. I think most of the young people don’t know much about the problem. Actually, I didn’t know anything about it. That’s why I focused on the refugees from Syria, and researched about their present circumstance, so I will mention about it. And also, I will tell you about Japanese Prime Minister’s opinion and my opinion.

After the Commission on Reasonable Accomodation (Bill 94) was announced in 2007 and the charter of Values of Quebec (Bill 61) was broadcasted all around radios and televisions by the Parti Quebecois in 2013, Muslim citizens have been going through a lot of obstacles. They have been misunderstood, and still are, because of their names, their looks, but mostly because of their religious faith. Hijabi women feel menaced by vicious looks in public places or simply when walking on the streets. Many Muslims are suspected to be “terrorists” only by the spooky feeling Arabic names give to them.
