This thinking has caused much heartache for young women across the world and could be rectified by further studying the differences between men’s and women’s social development. While this article may be older I think that the usefulness in writing a research paper on this topic would be beneficial. It has relevant ideas and examples on the topic of social development in regards to women. It could also be used as the cornerstone for further research on the topic of differing models for the social development of women versus the social development of men. Women are often thought to be not as competent in certain industries, because of the gender roles portrayed, such as in the Information Technology fields and this could article could help in this area and many other areas
On the other hand interpretivists do not agree with positivists. They argue that structured interviews produce a false picture of society because interviewers have little freedom to explain or clarify misunderstandings and any questions. Also feminists disagree with positivists because they are that the relationship between the interviewer and interviewee reflect the exploitive nature of gender relationships within patriarchal society. Graham takes this further by arguing to structured interviews give a distorted view on women’s experiences. They impose categories on women, making it difficult to express experiences, and therefore hiding the unequal power relationships between the sexes.
For example, with postal questionnaires the researcher cannot be sure whether the respondent has actually received the questionnaire. In other words, it can be unsure whether a respondent or a family member or friend of the respondent has answered the questionnaire. This can affect the validity and reliability of the research as the views would have come from someone else who may not be part of the population that the researcher is studying. Sociologists may also choose not to use questionnaires when conducting research as they can be because the respondents may not always give full or truthful answers. The respondents could be embarrassed or shy and may provide socially desirable answers.
Discrimination is when someone singles out someone or something because of characteristics they may have. Discrimination is different from stereotyping and prejudice because you may treat someone differently because of a characteristic they may. Whereas with stereotyping you automatically assume someone is a certain way because of how they may look. The way they dress could be an example of stereotyping, and prejudice is when you may not like someone because of your beliefs. Discrimination, prejudice, and stereotyping tend to get confused a lot of times, because people doesn’t know the true meaning of each word.
Lower in the band, answers will show both breadth and depth of knowledge of relevant theoretical and empirical material on feminist theory and research, although with some imbalances or shortcomings. They will show a sound understanding of important aspects of the question and of the issues that these raise. However, some significant aspects may be neglected or given limited attention. At this level answers might include: • conceptually detailed, accurate accounts of different feminist theories but with more limited consideration of empirical research or methodology • conceptually detailed, accurate accounts of feminist empirical research and methodology, but with more limited consideration of theoretical debates. Higher in the band, answers will show a thorough, accurate and conceptually detailed knowledge of a wide range of empirical and theoretical material on the set question and a sophisticated understanding of the question and of the issues that it raises.
However, not all of these urges are acted out because these women are worried about how they will be viewed by their peers and by society. There was also an issue of guilt felt by those who have been widowed. These women did not want to disrespect the memory of their
Though the feminist movement took a strong hold and the ideas of gender equality are promoted within the educational system, women still have limited opportunities for self-realization outside the family (Cho, 2002; Janelli & Yim, 2002). This situation naturally results in tension between the ambition of women who were educated to believe in gender equality and the realities of a male-dominated society. One possible reaction is to rebel and challenge the rules of the game; the other way is to accept the rules, master them and twist them to women’s advantage. The main female character, known as “the Girl,” chooses to do just that—and succeeds spectacularly. Not only she gets away with extreme sassiness and abusive behaviour, in the end, she gets rewarded with a caring guy who is willing to accommodate her crazy whims and temper tantrums.
I for one am tired of people holding onto stupid things such as race, gender, and different cultures. I for one would much rather have a qualified woman who has worked hard to get to where she is, and would do the country good, as president than a man, who really doesn’t deserve to be there for any special reason. Women have been working hard to get respect for
In her editorial “Restraining orders hurt women,” author Carey Roberts claims, “Restraining orders are not only ineffective, they can also escalate partner conflict.” But how can she support her claim that they are ineffective? Roberts is not looking at the whole story. Although there may be a small number of cases in which her opinion is true, it is impossible to know the number of cases in which restraining orders help those victims who need them. There may be vast numbers of people who have been deterred from physical or mental abuse because they did have fear of the law’s repercussions if they were to violate a restraining order that was taken out against them. There will always be a small number of people who will, regardless of penalty,
