“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world,” are the words of famous abolitionist Harriet Tubman. With feminism and equality petitioning on the rise, it's no surprise to find that the $20 bill is now adapting to accommodate equality.
Harriet Tubman is a famous African-American leader in history. She escaped Southern slavery and led hundreds of other African Americans to freedom through the Underground Railroad. This consisted of a network of safehouses and hidden paths to help African American slaves escape to free states.
Tubman left the South in hopes of becoming an abolitionist and fighting against slavery and segregation in Maryland. She is one of the most famous civil rights activists due to her role in the operation of the Underground Railroad.
When asked about the topic, students’ opinions divided greatly.

Feminism. One word, four syllables, meaning the theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes. One would think that it is a simple concept that’s easy to digest, yet so many seem to misinterpret what feminism actually is.
I am a feminist in every sense. That being said, I am not a misandrist (man-hater). I do not want women to overpower men and take over the world in a sudden rage of PMS. I do not want to burn my bras and anything else that has to do with patriarchy. My actions are not outrageous and unjustified just because I am not afraid to label myself with the f-word.

John is a typical high school football player. He’s muscular, because he works out with the team several times a week. One day during practice, he was missing blocks and was always a step behind his teammates.
John’s teammates use supplements before workouts and he doesn’t.
Now John has a question: “Should I take supplements or not?”
Many student athletes are facing this same question, but they get mixed messages about the risks and benefits of taking a regiment of supplements.

In 2014, a single occurrence of measles turned into over 300 unvaccinated people catching the disease, the biggest outbreak of measles in 20 years.
Many parents around the U.S. have been deciding not to vaccinate their children. It is believed that the reliability of the vaccines in comparison to their possible side effects isn’t proportional. It’s also believed that such diseases that vaccines protect against don’t exist anymore and that being vaccinated isn’t necessary.
