Athenian men thought women were both morally and physically weak to an extent. Laws related to Athenian women suggest women were morally and physically weak. In Athenian Courts, women are debarred from participating in any political or legal processes and if they were involved in any situation of that sort, their identity would go unnamed, if they of respectful/honourable kind. Women were also seen as an asset to the oikos and always need to be under a guardianship of the kurios, which is usually either their fathers and later, after marriage, their husbands. And if a woman succumbs to acts adultery, this is seen as a great threat for the Oikos as the women can no longer be seen as honourable or chase, casting doubt on children’s legitimacy.
Those two traits are nonexistent without the proper and precise application of positive reinforcement. Paying Marines the appropriate acknowledgements breeds morale, which has a direct affect on retention and overall mission accomplishment. America’s servicemen and women, at the very least, deserve an intangible debt of gratitude. Absent this, and any other positive reinforcement, and Marines might as well go and negotiate the formidable battlefields of civilian
How can anyone look into a soldier's eyes and question if they have any pride in serving in the military? Especially a soldier who has just gotten back from being stationed in Afghanistan for a year. A soldier who has left his or her family to go and defend our country. A soldier who while fighting lost an arm and became deaf from a road side bomb. The only thing someone should say the next time they look into a soldier's eyes is thank you.
The book is written for modern Americans, and modern Americans would find it in severe distaste to see a girl being blindly obedient to her father even when what he asks of her goes against her own wishes. Modern Americans want to see a strong female character that fights the norms to do what she wants. This is something that is highly valued in modern American culture. For instance, the suffragettes are highly respected historical figures because although it went against all cultural norms, they fought for what they believed in. Similarly, Birdy fights for what she believes in; the right to pick who she marries: I saw Shaggy Beard’s messengers in the yard, talking solemnly to each other.
Female Soldiers on the Front Line Currently, women in the military are not allowed to serve on the front lines of battle and I agree with this decision. On television you see the commercials with the slogan “Anything you can do I can do better.” Maybe some women can be better soldiers than some men, but that doesn't mean that women should be allowed to be on the front lines during battle. Putting a woman on the front lines of battle with men will compromise the mission. Men are human and will go out of their way to protect a woman, even if it costs him his life. And, until our country is ready to treat a captured, raped, tortured and mutilated female soldier just like a man, women should not be placed on the front lines of battle.
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.
Many individuals feel that tattoos are for second class citizens or criminals when in fact for some it is simply a hobby or dedication to a lost family member, child, or a way to label themselves with something meaningful for them. Feminist are often seen as women who hate men, when in fact they can actually be the core reason for the act of choice in other women, and the reason women are allowed to vote in today’s society without having to do anything with whether they like or dislike men at all, and also senior citizens are also believed to be co-dependent and fragile when in fact there are many elder individuals who are healthier than some young adults. These stereotypes are often used negatively towards these groups of people and often effect how one addresses the needs, thoughts, or actions of these individual groups. Stereotypes often bring in prejudice that doesn’t exist into a topic when discussing a group of individuals. These biases can affect how
Without Soldiers applying “LDRSHIP” to their work and personal life the Army would screech to a halt. Does every From the day we enter basic training the seven Army Values: Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Selfless Service, Honor, Soldier live up to these values? Unfortunately no, when all of the Values are applied you have ‘leadership’; and every leader in the Army has these values. All leaders have the ability to instill the Army Values in a Soldier. An interesting point about the Army Values is that none of them are physical traits.
I feel if everyone tried to live their lives by the army values the world would be a better place. The first army value is loyalty. Loyalty to me means always being there for your friends and family. Loyalty is important to me, because in the army you have to know the person to your left and right are going to do what they need to so that everything works out in the end. That can go into life outside the army as well.
