Athenian men thought women were both morally and physically weak to an extent. Laws related to Athenian women suggest women were morally and physically weak. In Athenian Courts, women are debarred from participating in any political or legal processes and if they were involved in any situation of that sort, their identity would go unnamed, if they of respectful/honourable kind. Women were also seen as an asset to the oikos and always need to be under a guardianship of the kurios, which is usually either their fathers and later, after marriage, their husbands. And if a woman succumbs to acts adultery, this is seen as a great threat for the Oikos as the women can no longer be seen as honourable or chase, casting doubt on children’s legitimacy.
Hamilton was an ardent believer that the states were incapable of uniting the people politically and economically. He feared the interests of the states would lead to chaos due to “an excess of the spirit of liberty, which has made the particular states show a jealousy of all power not in their own hands” (Morse, 1890). Hamilton was leery of state power because of how ineffective the Articles of Confederation were in promoting a national identity capable of defending the homeland and creating the basic foundation for economic development. Unlike many of his colleagues, Hamilton did not grow up a child of privilege and carried with him the stigma of being a bastard because his mother was previously married and his biological father abandoned the family. He grew up on the small Caribbean island of Nevis that “generated more wealth for Britain than all of her North American colonies combined” (Chernow, 2004).
But due to Brutus being mislead and easily manipulated by Cassius, Brutus would be a more suitable leader to lead Post-Caesar Rome than Cassius, but not to convincingly lead the conspiracy against Caesar. But neither are able to lead the conspiracy and Rome as a whole. Both Cassius and Brutus are friends of Caesar, Brutus respects and loves Caesar but he believes that he would bring chaos to the state of Rome, in comparison to Cassius whom he despises out of jealously and resents the fact that Caesar shows him no favour and is clearly envious of Caesar's growing power and popularity. In the first Act of the play, Cassius was clearly trying to persuade Brutus into removing Caesar from power, but Brutus is uncertain to do so, as he loves Caesar out of respect. " I would not Cassius, yet I love him well..Set honour in one eye and death I'th' other And I will look on both indifferently.." This shows that Brutus is indecisive of Caesar and is unfazed by Cassius's attempt to manipulate him to conspire against Caesar.
The constant struggles to achieve authority and power greatly influence the fate of the characters. Agamemnon is a signifier for political power. He thinks that a “person will wince at the thought of opposing [him] as an equal” (Lawall, p.111, lines 196-197), demonstrating his military and political strength. The warlord refuses the ransom Chryses offers him for his daughter “and [dismisses] Chryses with a rough speech” (Lawall, p.108, line 33). The reason for his refusal was not the girl herself but rather what she represents to him; Chryseis represents his dominance over a territory because she was the prize given to him after the conquest of Thebes.
One of the main reasons feminism has lost supporters is that business have worked to over-power the image that represents feminists. Feminists are portrayed as bra burning, hairy-legged, man- hating, and lesbians. This image of a theory as caused women to back down from the fight, and that’s exactly what organizations against the theory want. Many women are against being feminist, they find the word unappealing. The stereotype attached to feminism isn't considered beautiful by our cultural standards and as a result, this stance becomes unappealing to women because the worst thing you can call a woman in our culture is ugly.
Zeus wouldn’t help those who lied or those who were dishonest (Hamilton 27). Also, Zeus was angry with men, so he made women as a punishment, and he made unmarried men cursed, so that they would grow old without anyone to care for them. This could have affected why women didn’t have as
Mr. Darcy is telling Mr. Bingley that Elizabeth is not pretty so he has no interest in her. These words were caught by Elizabeth, which makes her think that Mr. Darcy has excessive pride and starts to hate him. This situation, where Elizabeth dislikes Mr. Darcy, could be prevented if Mr. Darcy had not say these words out loud. So people should be careful of what they say if they would like to prevent a hard situation. Because prejudice builds up as time goes on, it can be magnified if the situation is not clarified immediately.
I think it’s also an insult to men. To make them believe that by just using Axe product, girls would go crazy over them. According to Huffington post, Axe's ad isn't just bad for women. The campaign also insults and undermines men. "This ad promotes the belief that all men… are incapable of controlling themselves when women are nearby," Escobar wrote.
By not allowing same sex marriage it can cause psychological distress with those who are homosexual, and those who support it. Denying somebody a chance to be happy takes a toll. Imagine this; You and your fiancé want to get married right away but the hotel won’t marry you simply because of your origin or how you look. You feel alienated and the stress not only takes a toll on your body but also your mind. “The Stigma and harm caused by denying committed lesbian and gay couples the choice to marry fuels a vicious cycle.” (U.S. Study) Herdt primarily wants to inform us that denying people something they want causes not only anger, sadness and or misery, but also changes the way people think about the world that we as Americans live in today.
Yet, in the 1990’s and continuing now in the twenty-first century, both the men and women of American society are impeding feminism because their shared responsibility is overlooked, especially in cases of rape and other sexual assaults. It is clear when we look at a topic like rape that both sexes can be at fault, not only for the action at hand, but for the deterioration of equality in gender issues caused by that action. It is a well-established fact that men do not rape for sex, but rather for power. Men already have power just because they are men living in a male dominated society. Why on earth would a member of this "dominant" group feel the need to physically take over another person’s body in order to feel powerful?
