What does the ADA provide for people with disabilities?
ADA provide legal protection for people with disabilities; People with epilepsy, spinal cord injuries, schizophrenia, AIDS, deafness, blindness, mental retardation, [ and major learning disabilities would be examples of individuals who are "covered" by the ADA. That means that they are entitled to some legal protection using the provisions of the ADA (which we will soon learn about). On the
other hand, individuals with minor conditions which only last a short time - such as sprained ankles, broken limbs, or the flu - generally would not be covered.

It prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability in: employment, services rendered by state and local governments, places of public accommodation, transportation, telecommunications services.

What are some social and political issues relevant to women and GLBT people in the U.S.?
Weegy: Women's rights around the world is an important indicator to understand global well-being. A major global women?s rights treaty was ratified by the majority of the world?s nations a few decades ago. [ [ [ Yet, [ despite many successes in empowering women, numerous issues still exist in all areas of life, ranging from the cultural, political to the economic. For example, women often work more than men, yet are paid less; gender discrimination affects girls and women throughout their lifetime; and women and girls are often are the ones that suffer the most poverty. Many may think that women?s rights are only an issue in countries where religion is law, such as many Muslim countries. Or even worse, some may think this is no longer an issue at all. But reading this report about the United Nation?s Women?s Treaty and how an increasing number of countries are lodging reservations, will show otherwise. Gender equality furthers the cause of child survival and development for all of society, so the importance of women?s rights and gender equality should not be underestimated. ] ] ] (More)
