Women are equal to men speech

Women are equal to men speech.

I think we have all had a brain wash. We think women don't mind not getting paid the same amount of pay as men, or the derogatory female stereotypes and the push backs. But we do mind. 

So say I was strolling through the mall and and I was going to Kmart and I am so excited because I'm a girl so I really like shopping, I'm walking into Kmart and I need new underwear, all I want is a plain pair of white undies and guess what there is none there's pink and purple ones or frilly ones but no plain ones. It's so unfair men and boys have plain ones, for ballet I don't want people seeing my undies through my ballet tight and also it's not like my friends are going to ask what undies I'm wearing. Why can't girls and women have plain undies. 

Are girls related to cats because I'm beginning to think that lots of people are thinking that because generally  if girls have a fight it's called a cat fight because apparently we are always
catty if we have a fight but boys just called fights. And also it's not like we have the same amount as Hair as cats. Plus people think boys are better because boys don't fight as much, but for a matter of fact they do. 

So if I travelled back in time about 120 years My mum would probably stay at home and look after the house, look after the children and wish she could have a say in the vote, at that time women in New Zealand and all around the world women couldn't vote because men thought that women were only good at housemaid jobs and looking after children and weren't fit for the rough and tumble of politics. Finally in 1891 a woman called Kate Shepherd stepped up and lead a petition. In 1891 she gathered 9000 signatures and in 1892 20,000 signatures were gathered and finally in 1893 they got 32,000 signatures that's almost a quarter of the women population of New Zealand. 

A form of inequality is that some women don't get paid the same amount as men just because they are not men which is not a good enough excuse because they just look different and they work as hard and maybe harder than other men. For example statistical research shows that women in New Zealand are likely to earn 11% less than men.

A form of disrespect is that men are scared of what women might do, so they discourage them to go for strong and public jobs, so women back out. But some women don't back out like the president candidate Hillary Clinton. She would be the first women president of America but a lot of men don't like her because she is a woman. 

Women and girls have been stereotyped for centuries starting with when we had to walk on a particular side of the road because we couldn’t handle getting sprayed with dirt or mud from passing horses on the road, through to getting stereotyped that we are only good at house jobs like buying groceries or looking after a family, through to now we have the ‘Bic pen company’ releasing a new pen line called ‘bic for her’ which has created a stereotype that girls and women are too delicate for other pens and only like ‘her’ colours pink and purple.  


A World War Two hero Nancy Wake believed that if you were a women you could do anything and you don't have to have a family or have to travel with a chaperone. In conclusion we need to all help make this world a fair and happy place for all genders, so girls and women it's time to be brave, keep running ‘like a girl’, keep throwing ‘like a girl’, squash those stereotypes. Let’s hear your voice because your opinions do matter.

Women are equal to men

Women are equal to men.

In the world there are a lot of women who are treated unfairly because they are not men and do not have the same rights as men. People are mistaken in thinking women are equal to men I firmly believe and know that this is wrong, here are some reasons.

A form of disrespect is that some women don't get paid the same amount as men just because they are not men which is not a good enough excuse because they just look different and they work as hard and maybe harder than other men. For example statistical research shows that women are likely to earn £300,000 less than men over their working lives.

A second form of disrespect is that men are scared of what women might do, so they discourage them to go for strong and public jobs, so women back out. But some women don't back out like the presidental candidate Hillary Clinton. She would be the first women president of America but a lot of men don't like her because she is a woman. 

A long time ago women in New Zealand and all around the world women couldn't vote because men thought that women were only good at housemaid jobs and looking after children and weren't fit for the rough and tumble of politics. Finally in 1891 a New Zealand woman called Kate Shepherd stepped up and lead a petition. In 1891 she gathered 9000 signatures and in 1892 20,000 signatures were gathered and finally in 1893 they got 32,000 signatures that's almost a quarter of the adult European population of New Zealand. 

Women and girls have been stereotyped for centuries starting with we had to walk on a particular side of the road because  we couldn’t handle getting sprayed with dirt or mud from a horse on the road through to getting stereotyped that we are only good at house jobs like buying groceries or looking after a family through to now a ‘Bic pen company’ has released a new pen line called ‘bic for her’ which has caused a stereotype that girls and women are too delicate for other pens and only like ‘her’ colours pink and purple.  

A World War Two hero Nancy Wake believed that if you were a women you could do anything and you don't have to have a family or have to travel with a man.

Proud

Proud
The Speech Competition 

The judges had been talking for a long time, and I was beginning to lose my last dose of patience. Finally in what seemed like forever the judges strode out of the room. Miss Hudson climbed the stairs in her inky black shoes. I took notice of every little detail because it was so quiet and exhaustingly exiting. All at once the daring words came into the air rushing like a bullet train. The speech competition results came speeding out.  Suddenly out of the silence came these exhilarating words that hit me like I was falling asleep “ we have decided that this year's yr3 speech competition winner is Natalya !” That was when I felt amazingly proud.




Empathy writing

Empathy 
I empathise with the farmers and the children of the North Canterbury district, because they are in a drought which means there is practically no rain which leads to the grass becoming too dry for the animals to eat and if the the animals aren't big enough then they can't sell them. There money revolves around selling animals so if they can't sell it’s harder to pull money out for things. How I empathise is because I have gone up there an experienced how dry it is. Once when we went altogether to the feed out the hay but it was mouldy because it was the cheap hay.
I hope I can help with the drought.

Camp writing

Orienteering 
Speckled toadstools watch adventurers pass.
Orienteerers pass through the woods, and the vivid blackberries stain their clothes.
The shimmering stream sprinkles people with water as they trudge on the rugged path.
Rusty pine cones guard the trees that have glowing leaves.
Then we come to the clearing, and the crunchy grass comforts my feet.
The children scurry around looking for Number Six. 
We find Number Six but our opponents are advancing on us, so we hide under an enormous tree. 
Hidden stamps still wait to be found.
The finish line stays out of reach until we, the Sporty Adventures, reach it first.

Little Kaiteriteri Beach Poem

Little Kaiteriteri Beach Poem 

Fierce waves crash into braced sand. 
Slanted into the sand colourful umbrellas cover roasting bodies. 
Inviting smells of fish and chips cloak the air. 
Rocks clam to the ground holding bodies of warm salt water for mysterious creatures. 
My beastly fears crumble away from me.
Balmy waves of happiness shield me from somber thoughts. 
I can't feel depressed , I am wandering in my special place 
Little Kaiteriteri Beach.
