1 WHAT CAN WE DO? Becoming Part of the Solution Allan G. Johnson By: Meg, Catherine, and Ally

2 Stubborn Ounces (To One Who Doubts the Worth of Doing Anything if You Cant Do Everything) You say the little efforts that I make will do no good; they will never prevail to tip the hovering scale where Justice hangs in balance. I dont think I ever thought they would. But I am prejudiced beyond debate In favor of my right to choose which side shall feel the stubborn ounces of my weight.

3 Summary The article WHAT CAN WE DO? Becoming Part of the Solution by Allan G. Johnson addresses the idea of acknowledging how oppression is a general part of life. Not only in third world countries, but in countries that are considered first world too. This article does not focus on one type of oppression; Johnson addresses the problems of gender inequality, race, and sexual orientation. Johnson believes that although we may never achieve complete equality in everyday life, we are making huge strides each day. He focuses on the awareness of these issues not as a solution but as a step to making a change.
