Most of people answer this question negatively because they have several reasons for being opposed. They think it is a disadvantage for the army. Nevertheless, women should not be discouraged in the field of military service because of their physical appearancesI believe that women can serve in the army despite disadvantages. Most of women are against the war and why are women the natural enemies of war? Women are more patient than men and it affects them a lot.
It could also be viewed as the plastic meaning suffocation and overpowering material goods that are not needed but somehow are the most important subjects to these women. These respectable women however in Duffy view are artificial and fake. They only talk about trivial subjects because, language embarrassed them. This could mean a literal language such as swearing or a subject which is rude or not talked of in high society. Or meanings that they are uneducated or cannot express themselves well and therefore find it hard to communicate with each other.
So I asked a few people, who uses this word so freely. Why must we be directed this way? Friend or not I should not be your Bitch. I was told that some woman are called the B-word because they are belligerent, unreasonable, malicious, rudely intrusive, unpleasant and hard to get along with. Does that make it okay to call me a Bitch?
Hard Life for Women in the 21st Century According to the article “‘Bossy’, the Other B-word” by Sheryl Sandberg and Anna Maria Chavez, confident girls with leadership skills are often called bossy and struggled most of the time. It is a man’s nature to be leader, confident and opinionated, but when a girl shows the same qualities she is called bossy or other inappropriate words. Sandberg and Chavez write that girls are labeled as “aggressive”, “overly ambitious” or “too ambitious”. They talk about how the stereotypes about genders are affecting both, the little girls and powerful women. They talked how hard it is to be ambitious woman, who knows what she wants and all the negativities about being powerful woman.
women's lives are individually trivial, and their only strength and/or success can come from banding together" (1). Such assertion construes women through male social law and endorses the masculine value system. But, as illustrated in the ironically-named Trifles, where male calumny proved misfortune as the women used domestic intuition and invisibility to supersede the law in the name of justice, Susan Glaspell shows that during this time period, women held a kind of power. This “power” is delicate and one of the key themes in Trifles. Although critics disagree on how the vastly different gender perceptions within the play are used to portray the theme of women’s power within law and justice, all of their arguments tie back to the fact that the women in the story act as a surrogate for the female society of that time, showing them that they have more power than they realize.
The Role of Women Women continue to be depicted on screen with negative stereotypes. They are misrepresented and underrepresented. One might argue that there has been a lot of changes made with the rise of action roles for women but these roles are extremely sexualized and the majority of female in such action characters are not images of empowerment; they do not draw upon their femininity as a source of power, and they are not operating outside the boundaries of traditional gender restrictions. Instead, they operate inside highly socially constructed gender norms, rely on the strength and guidance of a dominant male action character, and end up re-articulating gender stereotypes just like many other type of female roles, therefore, not much progress has been made. Along with being sexualized women are also portrayed as submissive, week, desperate, psychotic, emotional, or gentle and affectionate while men are aggressive, independent, ambitious and self-confident.
We know this is not true because women have done everything in this world that men have including dangerous adventure sports yet they considered to be lower than men .Their talents are not as recognized as men’s talents are and they are mostly looked upon as not being fit for the same jobs as men are. These issues are presented in the texts examined in this essay. The song “What it feels like for a Girl” by Madonna and the essay “Fifty one percent Minority” by Doris Anderson are about Gender Inequality and how women are treated in society. The song by Madonna describes the pressure women feel to conform to social norms of politeness and subservience and the essay by Doris Anderson is about discriminatory practises that are done against women in Canada. Anderson is also one of Canada’s leading advocates of women rights.
Despite the occasional positive examples of women in roles that defy stereotype, too often they are forced to adhere to stereotypes or are even ridiculed for failing to adhere to stereotype. An example of this is the catch-22 that Hillary Clinton, the first serious female contender for the U.S. presidency, faces. She has been criticized for lacking feminine qualities; however, if she did display stereotypical feminine traits, she would be accused of lacking the strength and composure required for the job of president. Generally, we associate women with jobs such as nurses, secretaries, and maids. These kinds of jobs most people would consider as a caring and supportive jobs that are fitting to the stereotypical feminine nature.
Whilst any gender can be subjected to sexist behaviour, it is most commonly women who tend to be on the receiving end of it`. Functionalist and right wing sociologists might argue that sexism hardly exists in society today. Feminists would argue against this. Feminists have fought against the injustices endured by women, they do not believe in male supremacy. The fundamental principles that have existed in a western patriarchal society made women second-class citizens in comparison to men.
