Moreover, men see themselves superior than woman because of patriarchy system. In the film, McMurphy did not listen to Miss Ratchet as a leader and is against all of her decisions as well. McMurphy refuse to listen to her because she is a female. She may be a leader in the mental institution but not to his
Discuss the factors that contribute to prejudice and discrimination and identify some techniques for reducing the development of prejudice and discrimination. Prejudice and discrimination have been prevalent throughout human history. Prejudice has to do with a negative attitude held by a person about members of a particular group, while discrimination refers to behaviors directed differently against people because of prejudice toward the social group they belong to. Prejudice is the attitude and discrimination is the behavior that can result from the attitude. Discrimination can be controlled by laws, but the prejudicial attitude can’t be easily controlled.
However, her actions breaks the ‘ACA Code of Ethics’. According to American Correctional Association, “Members shall refrain from accepting any gifts, services, or favors that is or appears to be improper or implies an obligation inconsistent with the free and objective exercise of professional duties,” expressing that no one should accept gifts from inmates. By my coworker accepting candy her credibility became murky water. If I do not report her imprudent actions I will be as ethical irresponsible as her which will not fly. On the other hand, other coworkers would not report her so, they could have power over her by blackmailing but this action is against American Correctional Association Code of Ethics, as well.
Stereotypes lead people to expect certain actions from members of social groups. These stereotype-based expectations may lead to self-fulfilling prophecies, in which one's inaccurate expectations about a person's behavior, through social interaction, prompts that person to act in stereotype-consistent ways, thus confirming one's erroneous expectations and validating the stereotype. (Page 94–97) Often time’s people are fairly ignorant of the customs and
Further to this, it would also depend on at which point in the play we are making our judgement. For example, Katherina may be offending against her society’s expectations about women at the start of Taming of the Shrew, but does not necessarily do this towards the end of the play. It could be argued that in Much Ado about Nothing and The Taming of the Shrew, Shakespeare presents Beatrice and Katherina as offending against their society’s expectations of women – the expectation that women should be submissive and act somewhat inferior to the male members of society; this also includes the view that women should not be outspoken. One of the only female characters who speak in the first scene of Much Ado is Beatrice, which portrays her to the audience as an outspoken character, and in this way she would be offending against her society’s expectations of women. Beatrice is a woman who openly defies both the courtly and bourgeois traditions of this time, ‘No, uncle, I’ll none: Adam’s sons are my brethren; and, truly, I hold it a sin to match in my kindred’, (II i, 431-55) in this speech to Leonato, Beatrice explains why
When Cofer attended her first public poetry reading, Cofer says that, “She ordered a cup of coffee from me, assuming that I was the waitress” (350). Cofer explicitly remembers an older woman ordering coffee from her because she thought the poems Cofer is holding were menus. Cofer’s American Dream is to allow people to achieve their American Dream without regard to their skin color, accent or
I don't really think the narrator feels sympathy for Emily. I see the narrator as one of the gossipy townspeople that only take interest in Emily for selfish amusement, and to interfere with her life. I see the townspeoples' comments "Poor Emily" more as a statement of pity that she couldn't be like the rest of them, than as a statement of real concern and sympathy for her. 3. I don't think that it's believable that the pharmacist would give Miss Emily the poison, because, as he stated, she had to state her reasons for wanting the arsenic by law, and she clearly refused to.
Ironically, she is admitting Summers’ first point by herself implying that even she does not want to work 80 hours and she further argues that women are discouraged from making these time commitments because of discrimination in terms of earnings. This is ironic because Tong states that Summers is wrong and then through her offered proof confirms that women are hesitant to work 80 hours per week because it isn’t necessary or because they will suffer discrimination in terms of earnings. Unintentionally, Tong seems
This brings one to the conclusion that it is impossible to assume there is one shared morality because different opinions exist. One side of the spectrum might view prostitution beneficial to the City of Pooh, while the other may find it immoral or criminal. Hence, society is not threatened by the diversity of opinions; it is threatened when those opinions do not leave room for change and the exchange of ideas. The opinions of the opposition; however, do not adequately support their stance on criminalizing prostitution because it lacks reason and conducive evidence. Based on the political theories of John Stewart Mill, John Locke, and Patrick Devlin, the City of Pooh should approve the proposal to legalize prostitution.
That our Nation, founded on principles of equal rights, with laws protecting us from discrimination, endorses discrimination based on gender in its own institution, is particularly disturbing. Refusing admittance to females based on physical standards which don’t pertain to job effectiveness or based on stereotypes of women’s physical abilities is also disturbing. Basically, the idea is, we don’t think a woman can do it so we aren’t going to let her try. This stereotype completely discounts the women who successfully compete in triathlons, iron man competitions and various other physical challenges all over the world. Additionally, basing the discrimination on the fact that women have periods and might see a man naked or be seen naked trivializes the desire these women have to be the best and to be recognized for it.
