Young adults have historically been both subject to and perpetrators of violence, regardless of social class or culture of provenience. In the 20th and 21st century, literature and media have paid special attention to this relationship, focusing particularly on how violence shapes youths who will become the "leaders of tomorrow." Different cultures assign distinct values to the threats and challenges young adults face and, likewise, demonstrate varying responses to violence against or by youths.
My name is Laura Bauer and I’m the film studies editor of Women Studies: An Interdisciplinary Journal. I am also the co-editor of All Things Dickinson: An Encyclopedia of Emily Dickinson's World published by ABC-CLIO in 2014. Hollywood Heroines: The Most Influential Women in Film History is a reference work that provides comprehensive and wide-ranging categories not often found together in a single volume on film.
As Holocaust survivors were liberated from concentration camps, prisons, and places of hiding—among other compromised milieus they were forced to inhabit from 1939–45—they brought the memories and the trauma of the Holocaust to the places they eventually came to call “home.” Bringing such emotional and psychological burdens with them, many survivors settled abroad—from Argentina to Canada and from the United States to Israel—and established families, rearing those who would later be called “second-generation” Holocaust witnesses. These children of Holocaust survivors (and their children) have become the carriers and bearers of their parents’ memories and trauma that came to define the domestic experience of survivor households.

In 1995, Star Trek: Voyager launched in a way very different from its predecessor series. Voyager took place thousands of light years from the Federation, and it contained a multi-ethnic crew with a female captain.

The series challenged the nature of the American mindset at the time.
