It takes knowledge to defeat ignorance and that is what Laye tries to accomplish in his book The Dark Child.

Discrimination of Women - Bill Copeland once said, "Not only is women's job never done, the definition keeps changing." This couldn't be any more true; women play multiple roles from wives to mothers to professionals. Today women are moving farther away from their traditional role as homemaker and housewife towards the role of a liberated, self-supporting individual. This new role is not so readily accepted in society and bias is widespread in the workplace. Under state and federal law, it is unlawful to discriminate on the basis of race, sex, color, religion, national origin, age or disability....   [tags: Gender Studies] 377 words

Everything was being questioned in France then, and for the first time, women were doing some of the questioning. Why couldn't women vote. Why couldn't women hold public office.

Muslim Women and Western Ideas of Feminism - Muslim Women and Western Ideas of Feminism Western feminists aim for completely equal rights for men and women. They want to liberate women from perceived oppressions from men. Their aims are to give women completely free choice in their decisions. Such examples are child-bearing. This is a good view to the extent that men and women were created equally and so they should be treated equally. However, their views would not work in an Islamic culture. The Qur’an does states that, “Women have the same (rights in relation to their husbands) as are expected in all decency from them; while men stand a step above them" As Western feminists want women to be treated as though they are on the same step as men, Muslim women would not be able to accept this....   [tags: Papers] 380 words
