Muller’s attorney, however, argued that Oregon’s law violated women’s rights. He said, “we may regret that all women may not be sheltered in happy homes, free from the exacting demands upon them in pursuit of a living, but their right to pursue any honorable vocation is just as sacred as the same right enjoyed by men.” If this law was overturned, it would be a strike against the rights women were fighting for and open them up for more
Her claim was to argue the problems of how women are supposed to be seen as thin, long hair, and busty. She dismisses that argument as she focuses on her past problems that end up coming out as anger and just nagging. Also, reveals her own problems with her own race. Her bias is revealed as she called the man a “redneck” and called herself a “nigga,” as she stoops down to her offenders’ level. Her unsupportive argument is not to prove the misconceptions of what makes a woman a woman, really her arguments about her own anger and aggression towards her past.
In the story, the Awakening, Edna also rebelled against society by freely expressing herself. In her era, most people thought women had to be married and have children but she didn’t want that. This is a perfect example of how women can be rebellious against society’s view on
Although some perspectives on the subject claim women live in bad faith and put themselves in situations to be defined as a body part, if there was no routine of male’s looking or the notion to dominate and females attention starvation or feelings to please, there would be no need for a dominant and submissive relationship. Overall it seems woman will be in a constant battle overcoming their gender because it’s society and that’s just how it works. Whether it’s right or wrong, at the end of the day, if nothing drastic is done for change, then it is what it is and people will conform to
We can see that she feels guilty because she had already promised Maggie the quilt but as she feels that Dee is superior than her she also wants her to keep just to probably not having an argument with her.We Her word choice gave me the image that she might even be a little scared of her daughters Dee knowledge. While with Maggie she seems to feel equal and probably favors her in the way that she knows that she won’t let her heritage down but most importantly she would very feel embarrassed of where she came from. As dee showed whenever she was younger and would never take friends over. If it was written in any other point of view we wouldn’t be able to sense all the emotional feelings that the narrator is able to transmit by writing in first person. It would be only as if they were trying to explain what another is feeling.
They’re true gender cannot be discovered though. One woman said, “… She fears that if the members of her guild [a group who agrees to play together] were to discover not only her gender, but her age, she would lose their respect” (Pham 187). Because the players cannot risk being exposed, gender switching has become, “a test of skill” (Pham 185). While players lived as the opposite gender through their avatars they found it to be, “the ultimate challenge” (Pham 185). Men had to dodge sexual passes and other difficulties associated with their female avatars.
However, another reason they decide is because they want to keep the power and want to be in control- this is also a very common theme in the play. The women can refuse to get married, but can risk being disowned by their family and technically being thrown out onto the streets, so it is safer not to refuse and go ahead with the marriage. In my opinion, the Elizabethan society is not fair because of the fact that women have no rights and are just used for whatever the men wish. However this is because I live in a society where equality is the key to peace and a country where women have been in charge. Although if I lived in the Elizabethan times then I would not know what my opinion would be, as to whether I would think it is normal or unfair.
Because their relationship is an affair, they cannot see each other in the way they want to very often and especially not while other people are around. They are not married to each other which make their relationship very wrong in that community and time- more so wrong than it would be now. John Procter understands that their secret must be kept, but finished, but Abigail doesn’t care that they were caught once and could be caught again. She just wants their relationship back and says, “Oh, I marvel, how such a strong man may let such a sickly wife be-” (miller 22) Abigail then comes to claim that Elizabeth, john’s wife, is “Blackening me (her) name in the village!” She is telling lies about me (her)!” (Miller 22) but he just gets angry at himself because it’s true, and threatens to whip her for talking about his wife that
Franklin Roosevelt neglected women in a way that Eleanor strongly disagreed with. Roosevelt’s New Deal program not only neglected women, it also neglected workers and African Americans. Franklin did not ensure proper employment for women. Eleanor greatly opposed women’s suffrage, so she coordinated the League Legislative Program and laws providing equal representation for men and women. Eleanor was destined to ensure equal opportunities for women, and didn’t care what the consequences would be.
Additionally, basing the discrimination on the fact that women have periods and might see a man naked or be seen naked trivializes the desire these women have to be the best and to be recognized for it. These women have been in less than ideal conditions, as have their male counterparts and the minor adjustments that are made don’t seem to cause mission failures or lasting psychological damage. Additionally, speaking to the idea of how our nation feels about women killing or being killed in combat, I have to point out that women’s lives are no more or less valuable than men’s are. As the mother of sons, I don’t feel one bit different about my son dying in combat than anyone else would feel about their daughter doing the same. I believe very strongly in a woman’s right to choose what is right for her and her family.
