    The book I read is called Feminism Opposing Viewpoints by Jennifer. This book does not have any specific characters nor setting. According to the 2005 poll that was conducted by CBS News, this was a tough time to be feminist. I found this book in the library. The title caught my interest because I have always wanted to learn more about the topic feminism. I always wanted a clearer definition about the word. Yes my book does focus on issue that is important in today's society.Feminism is still relevant, because our society is still ran discriminatory by men. Women still make less than men, on average, in almost every career field. Violence towards women gets unsuitable every second.  

    This book has a wide diversity of opinions and viewpoints towards feminism. But I would really like to focus on this question that was stated in the book “How has feminism impacted females “. Feminism has affected women in several different ways such as prostitution, trafficking, arresting, jobs and so many more negative things. Some people believe that these acts should be eliminated  because they think that this is just wrong. They often times have family members that are affected by this. Most of the time it's women that have been through this or have a connection with other people .Some people think they should stay because they are just angry little devil they like to see people in pain most of the time it is the men. I believe that all negative acts should be stopped now. This has affected so many women in the households.

    I don’t like how this book ended. But this ended by talking about gay marriage, rights for gay people, history about lesbian rights same sex dominance. I am for gay rights but it  just was not a good way to wrap up a book. I was thinking the book was going to end with different ways to end all these terrible things that are happening .  they ended it with a number problem in the world. I was just expecting a more calming ending.  My favorite quote is “It is because I still believe so strongly in the right of a women to protect her body that I now oppose abortion.”

    If you are reading this book you must have an open mind and be prepared for others options on certain situations’ think that people that like are indecisive or don’t know the meaning this would be the perfect book you. After reading this book I have gained so much knowledge about this topic I feel like a pro.

    I have opinions about each of the chapters but I have education to deal with all the factors in Ch 2.
    So even though this book is intended for teenagers, This chapter does not take up the issues from the point of a teenager. Teenage sexuality, pregnancy and abortion are hotly debated but except for the Preface, this chapter is written about and for adults. So let us take up writing for teens.

    Pornography is harmful to teenagers.

    The author who takes up "pornography is harmful to women" starts by asking how much money the porn industry makes. Presumably she's concerned that women don't make their share of the profits. But this is not particularly relevant to teenagers. Then she questions the role of porn in the "average American boy"'s life. American (white) boys have been seeing porn in their preteen years for at least a century. I'm interested in the role of porn in girls'lives - whether girls get to see pornography. Although porn is not good sex education, it has been the only sex education available to a lot of boys, and girls have been deprived of even that. Girls don't know what their sex organs look like or even where some of them are. Boys can see and touch theirs. Then the author takes up the question of what kind of women make pornography - "Over two-thirds of women in pornography experienced childhood sex abuse before entering the industry." How is this relevant? Do they do sex wrong? Is this different from the rate of abuse among the general population? I'm not in favor of child sex abuse, but this section is supposed to be about pornography. Children are not supposed to make porn; everyone agrees that that's illegal. Children see plenty of porn online, and they could use adults who know how to look at porn and could have a useful discussion. Teenagers have sex. Teenagers have always had sex. Poor teenagers learn about sex by having sex with adults. When it isn't violent, the main problem is that such sex is exploitive and no one will help the teen negotiate for a fair share of sexual power in the relationship. Middle-class teens generally have sex with each other, and this doesn't work any better, because girls do it "to keep their boyfriend" rather than for pleasure, and boys do it for status and power. As far as I'm concerned, these sexual experiences are not a sexual relationship, although they might be training for marriage.
