This introduction to law, legal institutions and the legal environment will focus on the landmark 1973 U.S. Supreme Court case of Roe versus Wade. After describing the case, the effect of the case on religions in the United States will be discussed. This will be followed by discussion of the effects of this case on the freedoms enjoyed by Americans, particularly the rights of privacy and freedom of choice for the individual.
Roe versus Wade was the outgrowth of an unmarried pregnant woman filing a class action suit in the Dallas, Texas, federal district court. Wade is the name of the District Attorney involved in the suit, while Roe is a pseudonym used by the plaintiff in filing suit. The suit sought a declaratory judgment that the Texas criminal abortion laws were unconstitutional. Texas enacted its law in 1854, and the laws stood unchanged since

In her book Standing Again at Sinai, Judith Plaskow attempts to shape and describe a feminist Judaism, and she does so by describing the existing situation and how it developed, the meaning of a feminist Judaism, and how such a change might be brought about, assuming that it is determined that this would be a valuable addition to Judaic thought and practice. Plaskow begins by noting the contradictions that exist between a feminist conception of Judaism and the actuality, and she then considers different aspects of Jewish life and how women fit into them as well as how she believes women should fit into them. Her discussion echoes that of a number of other religious and feminist theorists who have considered the nature of religious thought today, the way a patriarchal religious society has developed, and how to regain some of what has been lost over the

THE WOMEN'S MOVEMENT IN EGYPT
The focus of this research is the contemporary women's movement in Egypt. Historical aspects of the issue of women's rights in Egypt are also addressed, however, because the contemporary women's movement is an outgrowth of earlier efforts to promote the status of women, and because the current status of women's rights in Egypt is a manifestation of the interaction of modern and traditional values and events.

This paper will be a discussion and analysis of two heroines from the Bible, Ruth and Esther, the tales of whom are told respectively in the Book of Ruth and the Book of Esther. There are many similarities between these two Old Testament heroines. This paper will give a brief synopsis of each heroine's story before discussing the many similarities between the two characters. Significant quotes from each book will be tied in to the discussion in order to illustrate and support these claims of similarity. A brief conclusion will debate the merits of the qualities each heroine represents in the book bearing her name for today's audience.

Almost from its inception, the United States has been undergoing demographic transitions. Still, although it has always been a multicultural society composed of different cultures from numerous parts of the world, its peoples have always been joined as one country; diverse cultures living together in the belief in the universality of the American principles of freedom, equality, and self-government. But the United States has also always been a complex and often contradictory society and clashes between its various ethnic groups have been prolonged and common throughout its history. The misunderstandings and prejudices that have caused such clashes, however, have the potential to be exacerbated in the future as technology moves the United States toward a more global society. Essentially, during the 1990s, the United States will have
