How to use oppressed in a sentence?

  1. Germaine Greer:

    Women over fifty already form one of the largest groups in the population structure of the western world. As long as they like themselves, they will not be an oppressed minority.

  5. Anuj Somany:

    The lies spoken selflessly for the advantage of an oppressed person are far better than the truth spoken for the benefit of own and/or other depressed, selfish people.
