One of her biggest challenges was working with Douglas Henry, who was the company’s key punch and computer sections supervisor (Bennett-Alexander & Hartman, 2009). Rabidue and other female colleagues were exposed to Henry’s vulgarity, hateful comments towards women, and obscene posters demoralizing women. Upper management had been informed of it, but had only given Henry friendly advice to curb the behavior, which had not been effective. Rabidue was also faced with challenges of not being able to perform her duties or receive the same courtesies and benefits as the other managers such as: free lunches, free gasoline, a telephone credit card or entertainment privileges (Bennett-Alexander & Hartman, 2009). She was unable to take clients to lunch because of how it would be perceived.
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.
Some of the tactics they employ include starvation, beatings, rape, and gang rape. Also, the traffickers are not the only ones to perpetrate violence. Reading ahead, I noticed we will be learning about Power and Social Justice and this subject fits in perfectly because there is no answer to why people hurt one another. Our previous assignments focused on issues in society such as the one in Enrique’s Journey and Loaves and Fishes and George Orwell’s 1984. Most humans have fear in speaking against something that is unjust and a violation of our dignity because it gives power to the higher authority to control.
The U.S. Supreme Court did acknowledge in its holding that tort liability might result from its decision but that such liability was often used as a guise or cover for gender discrimination. The position of many of the employers is that even if there were evidence linking the toxins to birth defects, the women took the jobs with knowledge about the risk and agreed to that risk. Any employer will have difficulty trying to reconcile antidiscrimination laws against risks of exposure as concerned by Sam, the Title VII bans sex-specific fetal-protection policies. The best an employer could do is to fully inform the women of the risk and not to act negligently. Congress has left this choice to the woman as hers to make, thus, Newcorp should allow Paula to make her own informed decision and allowed to transfer if she pleases (Net Industries,
This ad is completely demoralizing towards women. It portrays this woman as just a sex object to the consumer, which supports Jean Kilbourne’s ideas of dehumanizing women. This is a horrible ad to publish because normal women are going to see this ad and think that they have to behave and act like that because that’s when men want. The Tom Ford brand may have gotten attention with this tactic, but he also alienated a lot of the public who thought the ads were
“The construction of gender stereotyping of both males and females in the media is based on outdated and unfounded beliefs and therefore has had and continues to have a detrimental impact on society.” (Yes!) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CUyfD1F7k1I Women are subjected to many stereotypes in today’s society. Movies and television shows suggest that all women are airheads, whose sole purpose in life is to please men and rear children. Magazines and other advertisements push photographs of very slender, over groomed and “sexy women” into our minds. Men’s magazines write articles on how to seduce a girl into sleeping with them.
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.
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. Haigh wrote “it did the reputation of the Virgin Queen no good if the maids kept getting pregnant.” As a womanly down fall it was jealousy that was the main reason for her opposition to marriage. “Queen Elizabeth made her emotions a tool of politics.” The cause of much of her conflicts was due to her inability to widen her range of toleration. She kept a small close council and court, which excluded much of the nation.
Valenti provides many statistics of abuse against women here in the United States as well as examples of evidence for the mistreatment of women. Valenti's appeals began before she had written a single word, mainly due to her being a woman. She appeals to the emotional side of her readers, writing that we “cry with Oprah and laugh with Tina Fey”, that we are “fooling ourselves” into believing that a “mirage of equality...is the real thing." She is trying to explain that it is a sort of ignorance-is-bliss situation: look at all these successful women on television so how could equality not exist? She also cites facts, while maintaining an emotion, by mentioning George Sodini, who specifically targeted women in his shooting “killing three women and injuring nine others."
A female impersonator by the name of Lady Victoria is one drag queen that does take this issue to heart. He states that he “ hates the term drag because over the years, it’s been made out to be something trashy” and prefers to be referred to using more “professional” terms in his eyes. According to this article many interviewees identify being a drag queen as simply a male in woman’s clothing specifically someone named Sushi who identifies a drag queen as being “ somebody who knows he has a dick and balls”, so make no mistake when thinking that a drag
