His mother, who was caring mother who had protected the young Hitler from brutal father, influenced Hitler’s views about women. Because of his mother, Hitler thought that the only role for woman was domestic; these views were expressed in “Mein Kampf”. Women in Nazi Germany after marriage were expected to leave their job, however in 1937 as Germany prepared for war, women were needed to supplement the male workforce. Hitler believes that women were kinder, gentler than men. Slogan for woman in Nazi was: Kinder, Kirche, Kuche (children, church and cooking) .
This showed that the Nazis viewed that the only job of the women was to produce as many children as possible in order to grow its empire. Next slide For example, this is a propaganda produced by Nazi party, promoting ‘Law for the Encouragement of Marriage’ which I’ve just talked about. The parents produced four children. The husband is holding the family together, and the mother is taking care of the baby. The husband and the boys have tough looks on their faces, representing that the males should be manly.
Critics say that the main focus of Educating Rita is the English class system and the clash of cultures, however there are many other themes portrayed in the play that are of equal importance. As the title would suggest, one of the key themes in Educating Rita is indeed education. Rita strives to become educated after taking school for granted before. Frank asks her “what do you want to know?” and Rita replies “everything” showing her thirst for knowledge and her enthusiasm to learn. However, when Rita first meets Frank she is a working class, pop cultured hairdresser who knows nothing of English Literature, shown when asking Frank “what is assonance?” But, through education she learns more than just literature, which she exposes when, at the end, she reveals she can make her own choices, “I’ll make a decision.” This displays how education has a huge impact on both Rita and the play, making it a very important theme in the play.
They were forbidden to work, leave the house without a male escort, not allowed to seek medical help from a male doctor, and forced to cover themselves from head to toe, even covering their eyes. Women who were doctors and teachers before, suddenly were forced to be beggars and even prostitutes in order to feed their families. Since the fall of the Taliban in late 2001, many would agree that the political and cultural position of Afghan women has improved substantially. The recently adopted Afghan constitution states that "the citizens of Afghanistan - whether man or woman- have equal rights and duties before the law". So far, women have been allowed to return back to work, the government no longer forces them to wear the all covering burqa, and they even have been appointed to prominent positions in the government.
Etiquette lessons were essential to the curriculum of the college, as it was to prepare the girls to become the perfect housewife when they get married. Betty Warren, one of the main characters, firmly believes a woman's only role is to be a wife and mother. She strongly opposes Katherine’s way of teaching and writes a newspaper article that tries to make everyone in the college go against Katherine. Out of anger, Katherine Watson shows her students four advertisements in her upcoming lesson, which showed contented housewives with their modern appliances, she then asks them to question what the future will think of the idea that women are born into the roles of wives and mothers. The surrounding darkness of this scene with light focusing on the screen emphasises the main idea: women in the 1960s were expected to solely
Shatamara Towler Professor Flowers EDUC 2120 25 June 2014 Gender Biases and Socialization in Education in “The Mona Lisa Smile” As teachers, we recognize that schools are places of cultural governments. Schools are a set of public, literal and optical traditions aimed to produce the creation of values and needs that affect people’s sense of their future identities and possibilities. The traditions and ideologies concerning women’s role in society in The Mona Lisa Smile, affects the students desires and identities, and the role of social change. The film speaks on the culture of young women in prestigious schools preparing to give up their education for the education of their children, and serve as wives to privileged males, rather than following their own dreams. Katherine Watson, the teacher, challenges the girls by portraying liberal ideas to the students.
According to Rust (1999) the use of manipulatives is not a new idea. They have been around since ancient time. The human race is familiar with taking real life objects and manipulating them for understanding and knowledge. Like the ancestors of the past, manipulated materials make it possible for students to see the reality in the math concepts that are being used. “Base-ten blocks, algebra tiles, Unifix Cubes, Cuisienaire rods, fraction pieces pattern blocks and geometric solids are examples of manipulaives that can make abstract ideas and symbols more meaningful and understandable for students” (Durmus & Karakirik, 2006, p. 17).
Mead, born in 1901, grew up in “an atmosphere that was socially unconventional at the time. She was led to believe that women could have their own careers and was encouraged to play with children of all racial and economic backgrounds” (http://www.age-of-the-sage.org/scientist/margaret_mead.html). Due to this type of atmosphere and beliefs she held, many of her peers at the first college she attended excluded her from social groups and she later transferred to Barnard College in New York City. Here at Barnard College her interest migrated towards anthropology. One of her professors, the famous anthropologist Franz Boas taught her “the importance of studying cultures that were rapidly disappearing around the world” (http://www.age-of-the-sage.org/scientist/margaret_mead.html).
The Spanish Government is fully cognizant of the issues women face in combining their work and family responsibilities. Therefore, they are now trying to pass a bill to require fathers to contribute to the household and childrearing responsibilities. This bill if made into law would require fathers to take a more active role in the household responsibilities. Education –“The social costs are great if girls are not educated” (Dr Shapiro) Under the dictatorship of Franco, boys and girls were educated separately, and girls were not given the same opportunities as the boys. In Spanish society at that time, men were in charge and women subordinate to them: the wives were seen as “obligated to their families.
The Cult of True Womanhood was a widespread ideology in the United States in the nineteenth century. This male dominated way of thinking of a woman’s femininity would focus a woman’s role in society as a creature of domesticity. Although this was widely upheld as the premier ideology by the middle class, it carried with it many contradictions because of the ever changing hardships that came along with the growth and expansion of America. The consistent struggle between the illusion of True Womanhood and the ever changing demands put on women. It was assumed that True Womanhood would be naturally adopted because of women’s deeper religious connections and because of her purity.
