Week 7 Assignment 2 Through history women and the GLBT, community has been looked down upon as inferior to men. As time has proven to be a good thing for women especially the last decade because it has been a time of great advancement for women in the workforce and the outlook that society has on them. I think that people in the United States are also becoming more comfortable with the GLBT community. More people are able to express themselves for who they really are and people are becoming more open to the idea of love without limits. I think it is important to look back from where we have come and see the progress that is being made from where we started to where we are today.
This is significant because since the books are explanations of the events in the authors’ lives, the use of first person point of view makes it a lot easier for the writers to connect with the audience. Also, the diction of both books is not very complex. Another similarity between these two books can be found in the themes of each book. As stated in the introduction, both books tell of a woman who, after being born with something that set them behind in life, used their own intelligence and perseverance to ultimately become successful. In Keller’s case,
Alexa Nickell Pre-Modern History 115 Roles of Women In Patriarchal Societies Exploring the Differences Between Egypt and Mesopotamia ! In an age where women are ﬁghting desperately to be on the level of their male counterparts, patriarchy is nearly unheard of, especially here in the United States. Patriarchy, an age old social system, allowed men to direct political, economic, and cultural life, causing the role of women in most societies to deteriorate almost completely. 1 So why, one might ask, did women allow this to happen? Well, for most women subordination to men was the norm, from childhood young girls were taught that the father was the head of the family.
The top management of the company were stakeholders in the company, making them virtually irreproachable. Employees who worked directly for the top management such as assistants, secretaries, and receptionists tended to be almost exclusively younger attractive women. The company was a service related industry with many branch offices, so the bulk of the company resided at locations other than the main office where she worked. She then detailed her work environment including the interaction with co-workers, both peer and superiors. When she began working for the company everybody was nice and supportive of her, but she noticed a high employee turnover amongst those working for top management.
It threw light on the fact that Roman women had more opportunities to participate in the cultural, political, and economic life than their Athenian counterparts. In a brief epilogue, Pomeroy draws some general conclusions about the respective status of Greek and of Roman women from evidence presented earlier. Critique: At the time Pomeroy wrote there was, she explains, "no comprehensive book on this subject in English". Although her study was not primarily intended as a college textbook, it soon became the standard text for women-in-antiquity courses. The fact that it has remained in use for almost twenty years indicates that it serves that purpose well.
At this time you did not need a college degree to work in this industry and she got the job after her first interview. She said she was pretty good looking and a very good people person at the time and she believes that was a lot of the reason she got her job. She thought job searching was fun, but yet frustrating because she needed a job as soon as possible to help put my father through college, because she was living with him at the age of eighteen out of high school. She thought that all the hard work at home and with various tasks that her parents made her do helped her keep a good work ethic when she acquired this first job. She thinks that if she would want to change something about her careers and choices it would be that she would try more things out rather than just sticking with the same job for her entire life.
ECII Essay #2 Man Giving Birth Have you ever wondered what it would be like if men could give birth to children? If they would be strong enough like women to go through all the hard labor of bearing a child? In the short story “Bloodchild,” by Octavia Butler is a science fiction story about the idea of man bearing children. For many years, people have debated about how men have it rougher than women. But people have not stop to think about the hardships women go through, such as giving birth, C-sections, menstrual cycle, menopause, and all the symptoms that go along with it.
Edgell says that women do most decision making frequently on a probably daily basis, but their decisions go unnoticed whereas men make fewer decisions more infrequently but they seem to be the more important decisions such as moving house or buying a car or other serious financial decisions. A radical feminist would say that Edgells study just outlines the fact that we are living in a patriarchal society and that men are viewed more highly and have more power and control in the relationship, and that women are just used for everyday menial tasks. In conclusion, there is much to y for both sides of the argument but it is difficult to decide either way. It appears that there is some equality but we have a long way to go before actual
Gender Differences in Leadership by Rosaline Berry Troy University MSM 6640 Dr. Checkwa ABSTRACT With more women assuming the role of leadership in business organizations, gender differences in leadership is becoming of great interest. Are there distinctive differences in the way men and women lead? Until recently, leadership positions have been mostly held by men. Men have been stereotyped as the more effective leader. In recent years, the gender gap between men and women in leadership roles are decreasing.
Traditionally, gender made it impossible for women to become leaders in any industry. Still, today males account for the majority of leadership functions. Furthermore, women face more barriers than men do to get a leadership role, especially if it is within a male dominated environment. As women increasingly enter leadership roles, which have been traditionally occupied largely by men, the possibility that the leadership styles of women and men differ continues to attract attention (Eagly and Johannesen-Schmidt). History and the Challenges Women Face A number of events have occurred over the last twenty-five years or so that have resulted in the rise of the female in the working world.
