- to avoid preconceptions whereas men can make superficial decisions ranging incomparably narrow. In addition, Tannen suggests an example where women can be simply judged based on their titles - “Ms.” and “Mrs.” Tannen adds on by referring to Ralph Fasold’s research that it is actually the male that is marked. She writes, “Fasold points out that girls are born with fully female bodies, while boys are born with modified female bodies.” Tannen admits that she herself who is writing about the inequality between genders could be seen as a feminist, yet doubted that anyone would put that label on Fasold. Tannen concludes that she is unhappy about women not having the freedom to be unmarked as men had. Some days she just wants to get dressed and go about her business.
Similarly, source 3 suggests that women should know their place and not seek for ‘anything higher’. This could be referring to women wanting to be able to voice their opinion by voting or at least having a say in decisions regarding their family, however they were not seen as clever enough to do so. On the other hand, source 1 says that ‘to soften each other’ a man and a woman have to ‘unite’, which could perhaps mean marriage and children. The phrase ‘soften each other’ portrays a couple as equal partners with different, but equally as important, features that make a marriage work. In the same way, source 2 says that because of the differences ‘it is impossible to
The Issue of Gender Bias in Nursing NUSC 4P60 Marlee Heywood 4918116 Andrea Bodnar October 29th, 2014 Introduction In the healthcare field, nursing is predominately viewed as a female-concentrated occupation. The viewpoint of McLaughlin, Muldoon, and Moutray (2009) states that despite the historical fact that men are considered “pioneers” of the nursing profession, if they choose to pursue this occupation they can expect to be considered an “anomaly” to their gender orientation. The notion that nursing is not an appropriate career from men stems from the socialized view that caring is a uniquely feminine trait essential for nursing practice (McLaughlin et al, 2009). In society, women are viewed as caring, nurturing, and kind. Men, on the other hand, are viewed as strong, aggressive, and dominant.
In analyzing both of these positions, the thought that comes to mind it is a woman’s prerogative in what she wishes to do with her body. Even if the unborn are considered to be human beings, they have less rights than the woman. A woman should not be expected to donate her body as if it were a life support system for someone else. Once one grants that the unborn are human beings, it should resolve the question of their right to live. The right to be in this world does not add to with one’s age or size, because if it was so then toddlers and young adults would have a less right to live than adults.
Robert Prendergast Dr. Cherukuri Response Paper 1 9.20.11 This section of the reading dealt with how scientific research and science in general has shaped the way people in societies perceive women. Each reading brought another argument on the table, which had a direct correlation to science and women but were all viewed from different standpoints ranging from the connection between magic and science to scientific research about women’s brains. Throughout the readings my reoccurring thought was the interesting juxtaposition that played between the ignorance of western science when dealing with topics of scientific research on gender studies and the clout that western science still holds despite their biases and sheer favoritism to one sex. I found the reading on “Women’s Brains” by Stephen Jay Gould the most intriguing because it dealt with all the factors of scientific research on a specific gender, partiality to one sex, and ignorance boosted by falsified research in the past. I find this research to have many holes and extremely ignorant when considering the simple biological idea that since women have smaller brains than men
Sex in the Workplace Logan Elliott Scopes and Methods POL 2703 Ayala 8/5/2012 Literature Review The research question that this paper will investigate is how does one’s gender affect the amount of income that person will generate in the workplace? This research paper looks at the inequalities of males and females within their careers when comparing them to one another and will attempt to discover if there is an unfair advantage of income distribution that favors males over females, even in instances where both sexes ensure the same job requirements as well as education and experience. It is a well-known and controversial subject in arguing that males tend to dominate in acquiring a higher income than do their female counterparts. Men tend to be seen as higher earners than women, which then inclines the association between masculinity being an attribute of wealth. This stereotype in itself can be attributed in perpetuating the wage gap at both the conscious and non-conscious levels thus leading to a sever inequality and a wage gap.
In now days education is a big deal, and absent of fathers interaction effect female interest in academic advancement. Franklin Bkron and Zoe Bogon states � Mathematics is typically associated with masculinity therefore females without fathers may have less interest than male peers":(598 pg) this quote make perfect sense even in a male perspective, in life we all have a key mentor who leads us to the fountain of knowledge and if a father is not there to lead the child, the encouragement of gaining interest in Mathematics and Science can be more difficult, and settle for a low or regular education (Furr pg 533). The effect of Fatherless children in society is so critical *71% of all high school dropouts are from fatherless homes (Bkron and Bogon 2-3pg 598) and in record to having the lowest scores in schools. education can be a thing to grasps and with mothers playing their original roll she can not by herself fill the father's roll which in complicating, and social demanding leave the child handicap. Absentee of fathers also affects their children's opportunity.
‘Making a Nation out of Words’ Words may seem nondescript but they actually shape the thinking of generations, cultures and in turn nations. Reiteration of such rhetoric phrases which are non-committal for its users, however; they have immense negative connotations for the people they are intended for. Pakistan being a male dominated society regards females as subordinate and an inferior . This gender bias reflects in our use of language. “Hum ne choorian toh nahi pehni Hui” (We are not wearing bangles) is one such commonly used phrase which completely represents the idea of femininity being regarded as an abuse in the society particularly in the political community.
Flanagan wishes to know if the total liberation of females must include their sexuality, and if so, can humanity change or eliminate the scrutiny of young women caught in precarious situations resulting from the consequences of their sexuality. Flanagan believes that males “can’t imagine” the consequences that females face as a result of accidental pregnancy, abortion, or giving a child up for adoption. While I agree that a female can definitely carry a more severe or different kind of burden than a male does in this type of situation, I believe a man can understand the biological and psychological implications. A man doesn’t have to carry a child and, therefore, is absent of the maternal instincts and emotions involved with pregnancy. Being responsible for a living organism that is growing inside of you is something that is very difficult for men to relate to due to the fact that they will never have the opportunity to experience it.
One of the arguments of co-education is the idea that it provides too many distractions for students. Several scholars have argued that these distractions have led to less attention on school work and class participation, due to girls and boys trying to impress each other. Furthermore, it has also been argued that students who are intimidated by the opposite sex may also be affected by low performance and low grades. Many educators believe that single-sex education does not enforce any type of gender-based stereotypes or adolescent subculture. Due to this, single-sex schools have been established to combat these issues.
