1. In article 22, this is basically discussing the severe droughts on the west side of the United States. It talks about previous years that weren't so droughtful, such as 2015. The article does a good job of representing or telling the reader as to just how much water has been lost.
2. The purpose of the article is to alert and inform readers about the drought that has been taking place out west for a pretty long time now. Most easterners more than likely don't know much about the drought, or don't care because it doesn't affect them. Well, after reading this as an easterner I do feel more concerned.
3. The article is using a description text structure. I know this because the way it is written really helps me picture some of the images the writing is trying to portray in my head.
-The first text feature is the very large bold title that fits the article very well.
-The second text feature is a very large picture at the very top of the article that is a picture of a small lake with a lack of water in it.
-The third text feature is a photo of a person snowboarding down a mountain that has barely any snow on it, which is something that the article discussed; the lack of snow.
-The fifth text feature are the bold captions below each of the pictures that entail what is happening in them.
I think that women are so much more towards the side that they are treated like object is because they actually know what it's like to be treated like this and have experienced it. Yes, this is a few that don't feel this way but if the majority feels like this then there is an issue. The males are more balanced in their response. I think that this is because some guys see women being treated like this, and others may even possible treat women like this, or just are oblivious to it. Personally, with all the protests and marches I see from women, I would think that they are probably being treated like this rather frequently if they're always talking and protesting about it.
