...za 8)” AEI uses Shrinks expert opinion to illustrate why China is so involved with countries like Sudan and Iran. AEIs prescribed role for government is for government to take care of its constituents. AEI advocates for the government not to tax the rich and to get rid of things like federal regulations in the economic market. They would also advocate for the government to get rid of expensive federal benefit programs. AEI would get along with interest groups like the National Review, Cato Institute, and The American Conservative Union because they all share some of the similar values or prescribed role for government. In conclusion this analysis shows that while Interest groups advocate for their different prescribed roles for government they go about influencing public opinion in the same way. They also more or less argue using the same types of methods.

Kennedy signed the Equal Pay Act of 1963 into law, he hoped that it would allow working women to finally earn the same amount of money as men; however, more than half a century later, men continue to out earn women in almost every field of work (Lipman para. 4).

- First-wave feminists fought for equality between men and women, so that women could have their own rights. One of the rights that women fought for was the ability to get post-secondary education (Lorber, 2010, p. 2). As a result, women had the ability to attend post-secondary education, and have been exercising this right ever since. In 2005, 58% of women received all bachelor’s degrees (Snyder & Dillow, 2007, p. 325). Yet once graduation occurs, there is a different form of gender inequality found at the workplace....

- Pay Inequality for Female Doctors It has long been known that in the United States, women do not make the same amount of money as men do in the workforce. Women have gained so many rights that have previously been unavailable to them in the past few centuries, so why are women in 2015 still not receiving the same pay benefits as men.
