Tonight, right now, over two thousand infuriated Irishmen and Women have gathered outside the Dáil in protest over the death of Savita Halappanavar, who died of septicaemia in Galway University Hospital after she had a miscarriage. They protest over our governements failure to legislate for the X Case.
This was a protest organised over a matter of hours. The response has been overwhelming.
Ireland needs a change. All these people are there to voice this chance.
Why is Pepper Ann such a great show? Well, let’s start off with the main character. She’s pizza-eating, tv-watching, comic book-reading, hard rock-loving kind of girl who loves to rollerblade. She’s great at soccer, average in school and worries a lot about being cool. What’s interesting about Pepper Ann is that she’s definitely the most aggressive character in the show, and is never penalized for that. Her lack of feminine passivity is always shown to be a good thing. In fact, the entire show is full of strong-willed females who respect and accept themselves for who they are. Like her single, feminist mom, Lydia Pearson, who supports her family and encourages her daughters to be independent and to believe in themselves. Her younger sister, Moose, looks and sounds like a boy, yet this is never commented on in the show. Moose just is who she is, and nobody cares that she doesn’t fit in to the typical female role. One of Pepper Ann’s best friends, Milo, is a sensitive artist and in one episode he comes to the conclusion that there is no typical way to be a guy. The main females characters of the show rarely worry about their physical appearance and Pepper Ann often learns that traits like honesty and integrity are more important than being cool. When it comes down to it, this show is amazing because it sends the right message about girls and women. The show is centred on strong female characters, and portrays a world where gender really doesn’t matter.
Sarah was a cheerleader for the Dallas cowboys when she was 19. She wasnt even there for a whole season,yet she made the cover of their calender. She decided to join after a friend told her they`d been on Saturday Night Live a few years earlier.
“There was one point in my life where I lost faith in Disney. I thought it was changing too much, and I wanted it to still be the Disney of my childhood. And then my friend got me to watch Tangled and The Princess and the Frog, and my faith was resorted. Disney will always be apart of my childhood. And i couldn’t live without it.”
I kind of agree. There was a time where, I don’t think, the movies were as good. Like after 1999 (with the exception of one or two of those movies.)
