Serial killers are rarely thought of as women. Perhaps this fallacy is based on the stereotype of women being delicate and sympathetic. For these barbarous killers, often the pretense of nurturing minimized any and all suspicions, but these women are just as immoral as their male counterparts. Patriarchal society is, by definition, male-centered, male-identified, and male-dominated (Johnson 24). Within the notion of male domination is the approval of male violence to implement male domination (Hooks 48).
Graff asks, “Why was she out so late at night, provoking men into rage by being openly female?” People blame women for being out so late and night, and it seems like women want men to enjoy them. It is absurd that people would blame women on everything, even when it is not women’s fault. Another cause of rape culture is that men as a whole are stronger than women. In the past women do not have more power than men and now they aren’t physically stronger than them so they would be over powered by men. For example most of the men can force women not to move with their strength, so women cannot escape from men.
A couple of examples are spousal murder and rape. (Gen 14 2012, p.24-26) Women who murder their husbands no matter what the circumstances find it hard to be treated sympathetically by the justice system. This is due to the historical cultural stereotypes of women and the Judicial Myopia of the judges and courts. (Gen 14 2012, p.23) Historically men are given greater latitude when it comes to spousal murder as women are seen as a man’s possession and any deviance from that is provocation. (Gen 14 2012, p.24) Women find it difficult to plead provocation as they are expected to be submissive whereas male stereotypes suggests it is acceptable to be aggressive and abusive to keep the women obedient and in her place.
Obviously, his behaviour of “sexually charged looks and gestures” and “unnecessary touching” such as hugging is a sexual harassment action to women if the women were not willing to. And first, we should confirm this issue that Haddad really had done those things to female staffs and his actions corresponded to the reports from at least 10 women. Sexual harassment cases are hard to confirm because it rarely has witnesses, so a proper investigation should take place to the authenticity of Haddad’s behaviour, If it corresponds to the reports that he allegedly sexually harassed to the female staffs, he have to be terminated. And there are three “progressive discipline policy” that written warnings, suspensions, and determination, the reason I think he should be terminated , not written warnings or suspensions is that he has high level position in the company he number of victims is more than ten, it is a sexual harassment case that by senior management personnel to numbers of female staffs. If he does not be fired, and his behaviour would go beyond the scope of the company’s definition of sexual harassment, then many female staffs would be “legally” harassed.
Outline and assess feminist explanations of crime and deviance. Feminist views toward crime and deviance usually challenge the theories, concepts, methods and assumptions of most of the people already involved in the study of crime. They believe that in most condition men dominate the subject of crime and validate more on the male subject. Feminist essentially outline that most crime is caused by men as they appear to offend six or seven times more than a women and through figures such as self-report studies men are still the majority. Crime and deviance is an issue in society however due to women being socially controlled within the patriarchal society it means they are less like to commit crime and therefore have a lower rate.
‘Pretending that such a sexist institution can bring ‘women’s rights’ to Afghanistan is a sickening piece of hypocrisy’ (Army’s rotten sexism: a product of training killers 2011). In addition, men that work in the army are exposed to violence, brutality, intense pain and witnessing of death very often. This may be the cause of the men acting in such barbaric ways as they need some sort of distraction of the problems that they may find difficult to face in the real world and turn to women as a form of amusement. Additionally, in modern societies, some women tend to expose themselves more due to their femininity. This can cause misunderstandings in a workplace and men may take this up as an invitation.
Reviving Ophelia Abusive relationships are not only reserved for married couples. There are plenty of teens caught up in these dangerous situations, and like older women, the teenage girls feel they are somehow responsible for the abuse they suffer at the hands of the men whom they love and who supposedly love them. This phenomenon is common among abused women. They make excuses for the beatings they take and their abusers insist it will never happen again. And yet it does the cycle of violence never end.
It’s pervasive, even when we’re pretty sure we believe in equality we find it hard to make calls on whether abuse in a relationship is conflict or mutual or something more sinister. We know that men who abuse tend to blame other people, alcohol or circumstances for their violence. And it’s not just abusers who have that attitude. A 2009 National Survey on Community Attitudes to Violence Against Women found that 18% of Australians thought that ‘relationship violence can be excused if it results from temporary anger’. Similarly 1 in 5 categorised ‘yelling abuse at a partner’ and ‘controlling a partner by denying them money’ as either ‘not that serious’ or ‘not serious at
Many writers argues that stereotypes causes many trouble to people's lives in kinds of aspects and bring them a lot of troubles. Cofer points out that media use the image of Latina women lead people to misunderstanding them. She describes the terrible experiences that the boss of Puerto Rican women proposed the unfair condition to decide their future of jobs in the factories and men would often misinterpret their tight skirts and jingling bracelets as a lure. In the same way, Gup provides the example that people believe the stereotypes and these stereotypes also place a crushing burden on Asian-Americans. Gup argues the stereotype makes people feel uncomfortable because that his teacher think he could and should do better just because he is a Jew.
Women are more often target of sexism; men can be victims of sexist assumptions. Examples of sexism directed against men are the assumption that men should not be employed in certain female dominated occupations, such as a nurse or elementary school teacher. The belief is that somehow more harmful for families when female soldiers are killed in battle than male soldiers. Sexism is interwoven with patriarchy- a hierarchical system of social organization in which men control cultural, political and economic structures. By contrast, matriarchy is the hierarchical system of social organization in which women control cultural political and economic structures; however few (if any) societies have been organized in this manner.
