Karen Hill Unit 3 Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in Work with children and young people 1. Understand the importance of promoting equality and diversity in work with children and young people 1.1 Identify the current legislation and codes of practice relevant to the promotion of equality and valuing of diversity At The Meadows Community Primary School there are a range of policies which set out guidelines and procedures for ensuring equality. These must take into account the rights of all individuals and groups within the school. Policies must also pay regard to the values and practice which are apart of all aspects of school life. It is important for myself to understand relevant legislation and it’s purpose, as this will help me in my role as a teaching assistant and make me aware of my responsibilities.
Dorothea L. Dix PSY 310 December 19th, 2010 Dorothea L. Dix Dorothea L. Dix was a woman of many splendors. She was not one who wanted credit for her accomplishments for she acted simply in a matter that would best help people. She was driven by the purest desire to help individuals obtain a better life. “There are few cases in history where a social movement of such proportions can be attributed to the work of a single individual” (Gardner & Kovach, 1972). Dorothea accomplished extreme reform for the treatment of the mentally ill.
The first permitted women to serve o federal juries, the second required that all workers-women as well as men-be paid on an “equal pay for equal work” basis, and the third became the bulwark of the fight against sex discrimination in employment.” (Lingren, pg.40) Congress gave a listening ear to the voice of the women crying out for individual freedom that encompasses rights that were bestowed upon the opposite sex just because they were born male. Congress made the first steps in investigating women’s petition on equal rights and put laws and regulations into effect to uphold women’s rights and
All the income that derived from these projects all went to charity. Many look at the “the First Lady” as just the president’s wife, but, she was much more than that. Eleanor always said “I never wanted to be a President's wife." Eleanor redefined the typical role of the First Lady, not only because of her feminist views. Eleanor had regular press conferences, something that the first lady had never done.
Restricted by Their Beliefs Elias Monsalve “I attest that this paper upholds the Manhattan College Honor Code as well as the expectations of and responsibilities for academic integrity outlined in The Community Standards Handbook.” Elias Monsalve Elias Monsalve April 15, 2014 Religion 110 Section 06 Dr. Shefferman Restricted by Their Beliefs History has revealed to us that women have been treated unequally up until the early 20th century in The United States, and other countries have followed in our footsteps. Although all this good is happening, Islam tends to restrict opportunities to women of all ages. The Middle East is a cultural region full of rich history, but does not see forward progress due to restrictions placed on women for employment, education, and even lifestyle. It is not only just that women are treated equally but a moral obligation to mankind. Whether you are a devote Jew, Christian, Muslim, Buddhist or atheist, it is a human beings right to get an education, work where her heart pleases her, marry who she wants, or even be allowed to wear what clothes she desires.
This was a big change as, before this period, women hadn’t been able to put forth ideas to even challenge legislation let alone contribute to the making of new laws. The custody of children act 1839 played a big part in this change. This act came about when a woman - Caroline Norton - wrote a pamphlet which she named ‘The natural claim of a mother to the custody of her children as affected by the common law rights of the father’. Within this pamphlet Norton talked about the unfairness of the current laws which allowed the father to have absolute rights to the custody of his children no matter what, yet a mother, even if not proven guilty of adultery or any other
Anthony, the opposition of women’s rights became more clearly defined. Text from the trial furthermore invoked the need for women to become demanding and continue the fight for freedom and equality. The judge made one thing very clear, Women’s rights were not going to be obtained the natural God given way, or through the court system that had been designed to protect citizens and their rights. The discrimination faced by women in 1873 can be clearly seen in the recounting of this trail. Nowhere in the United States Constitution does it state women cannot vote, nor has it ever.
She was also put on trial and fined. She refused to pay the unjust fine which denied her chance to appeal, but was not imprisoned for it. Congress laughed at her when she gathered petitions from twenty six states and ten thousand signatures asking for passage of a suffrage movement. In territories where women had the vote, Anthony campaigned to make sure they were not blocked from joining the union (“Biography” 3). She composed and published “The History of Women Suffrage”, founded the International Council of Women, and the International Woman Suffrage Council.
Leon B. Bacon, a niece of Susan B. Anthony, stated later in life that “because of Aunt Susan's love for women and perseverance in her cause, I have today the enjoyment of a great many more rights and privileges than my mother had.” When Aunt Susan herself was young, there were no such things as woman's rights; all the rights were masculine. Women were ruled by a government and a law in which she had no voice. If she felt herself wronged in any way she had no way of making the fact known before the law. It was an unheard of thing for a woman to speak in public. None of the colleges or universities admitted women students.
Due to the fact that women could control when they had children, they could now finish college and have more consistent jobs. Feminists fought to broaden the opportunities that the Pill helped make possible and in 1972 Title IX was enacted, “ending discrimination in education, throwing open the doors of colleges, law schools, and med schools to women” (Gibbs 8). The assumption that if women were to be accepted into these schools they would just get pregnant and drop out was no longer a valid reason to reject female applicants as it was once before. Subsequently, the Feminist Movement not only brought more rights and opportunities to women it also caused an uprising in sexual freedom of women and the US
