        Our world is full of people, some who had a biggest importance than others, some famous, some respected and recognized. Human story have seen lots of men and women who changed the world by their acts. That’s why I’m going to talk about “Myths and Heroes”. Myths are defined as stories about gods or heroes, it can be a popular belief or a tradition. A hero can be a mythological figure, a person who is admired for his or her achievements, a superhero or maybe a role model or an icon. The 60’s were very important years in the history of Great Britain. Thanks to the bravery of many people, the change was enabled in this society. This brings us to ask the following question: In which way can we consider the 60’s in Great Britain as a period full of heroism? Firstly, I will talk about the memories of the 60’s, and then I will explain why this decade is synonym with heroism.

        During the 60’s, people of Great Britain were in times of change. The territory was becoming modern, loads of new technological inventions appeared, and the English culture had an important impact on the world. Indeed in the document “Memories of the 60’s”, we realized that the coloured TV, as well as the Concord, the famous English plane, were invented at this time. Furthermore, the society ran into a revolution in all fields. In the text “Times are changing”, we learnt that London was called the fashion capital of the world. Actually, some celebrities like Twiggy or the Rolling Stones contributed to make Great Britain a powerful economic and cultural force. English people during the 60’s were enthusiastic and optimistic, it was a fabulous and fresh period, unprecedented in the history of England.

        There are many people who participated in these shifts, and most of them can be considered as heroes. The young acted against the principles of the society, they wanted peace, and protested against the Viet Nam war, despite the threats of the government to stop their demonstrations. They also played an important role in the replacement of British culture. As said in the article “The real story behind Britain’s rock’n’roll”,  young anchored off the coast of England, in old fishing ships, in order to broadcast forbidden music, such as the rolling Stones or the Beatles. They risked their lives when they were at sea, and also because they were outlaws. Some other people like Beatrix Campbell also acted as heroes when they stood up against the H-Bomb, during Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament’s march, every year. But the real heroines were women who fought for their rights and sex equality. This struggle is shown in the movie “Made in Dagenham”, in which Rita demands to be on an equal footing with men in a Ford Factory, even if she could lose everything and be denied. She is opposed against Members of Parliament and never gives in, her bravery is worthy of a heroine.

        To conclude, we can say that the 60’s was a very famous and important decade in the history of Great Britain. People who acted as heroes, especially the young, contributed to the evolution of the society, and today their bravery is cheered and told in the whole world.
