Like many feminist writer, Cockerline focuses her emphasis on how social norm discriminate women by inhibit their job opportunities. Throughout the history, social norm restricts women’s power by only allow them to contribute to certain job tasks such as maid, cook, and house keeper. In the beginning of the story, Elizabeth’s father “refuses[s] to pay her school fees” since “his wife had finally birthed a son” directly supports the idea that men are more superior to women. Since education is one of the key elements that lead to better chances of having a job, the narrator eliminates this opportunity to contribute to Elizabeth’s misfortune. Furthermore, the narrator indicates “[i]t can be a hard place for a
Throughout the article, she references women and the culture of overwork, completely disregarding the men in society today that are “workaholics” in order to support their families. Because of her feminist beliefs, she takes a primary view of the issue as one the only effects women in this article. There are however a large number of men who become workaholics in order to support a family, where the woman chooses to stay home with the children for example. When Rebick states “women need to make overwork a major public policy issue,” she is being prejudice towards the male population that is also effected by overwork. She only references woman in her advice on how to overcome the issue, therefore leaving out a major demographic in the workforce.
Thus a woman’s existence and recognition is dependent on a man’s acknowledgement. De Beauvoir argued that men and women approach love differently due to social and economical inequalities. Because man is the Subject and women is the Other (De Beauvoir 1983, p. 16), women’s freedom is socially forbidden, “but women, not being able to fulfil herself through projects and objectives, is forced to find her reality in the immanence of her person” (641). Thus if the woman is denied the

The word ‘jailbait’ In the 1930’s was a sexual connotation that is very sexist in the way George uses it. This insinuates that CW is not equal to the workmen, as she is believed to be weak willed and a troublemaker. Steinbeck uses short sentences to create tension among the bunkhouse as George is sending a message across to Lennie that CW is dangerous and nasty to be around.
In this way Hero exemplified everything that a women was expected to be. The character of Beatrice on the other hand, was not. Beatrice knew the restrictions that were placed on women and she deliberately was able to escape them by refusing to marry. The women’s opinions and statements are also not as valued as the men’s. This is evident in the disastrous wedding scene between Hero and Claudio.
All that chaos contributed to the male chauvinism we see in our current society. Women had to handle that change without any moral support. It is also important to remember the important role women took in both world wars. A “Jury of Her Peers”, demonstrates how hard marriage was for all women who did not enjoy their relationships. Women in those types of relationships were treated as objects instead of being valued as women of freedom which represent intelligence, compassion, love and beauty.
This has made women to be illiterate as the men acquire the best education. The Kosgei 2 reason they are doing this is because the belief women are inferior over the men and should not have anything good.

Such cultures make women to be slaves of men and deny them freedom of education. Some religion in the society has been unable to move with the time, they reject modern education claiming that it is a threat to their beliefs and the way of life.Consequently,the children of such house hold are also deprived the opportunity to study in modern schools and free their minds from conservative ideologies.
She would listen to the “gossip” of the court to fish out the truth that was not shown. She often became angry when the women of court would want to get married.

She kept a small close council and court, which excluded much of the nation.
This was a label attached by men saying that women were getting out of control because times were changing where women were allowed to have opinions. They did this to try and control women. Symptoms of the said ‘illness’ were nervousness, faintness, insomnia, shortness of breath, loss of appetite for food or sex and more. In today’s society none of these add up to a certain illness, hysteria was just a way to keep women in line when men didn’t want to hear what they had to say.

He believes their opinions are immoral and that they don’t have the ability to rule a city. While in Merchant of Venice law doesn’t prohibits women to many of their rights, but they aren’t able to obtain their desires without permission of a man or without going through a situation pretending you are a man. For instance, Portia has to dress up to attend court to free Antonio from forfeiting the bond with Shylock. Portia was a “living daughter [controlled] by the will of a dead father”, which means she can’t chose her own husband.
