Courage is the practice of determination and perseverance. Something like, an unwillingness to abandon a dream even when the pressures of society weigh down on your shoulders; society will make you feel tired, humiliated, broken, and confused. Actually, it can be effortlessly said that daily courage is more significant than bouts of great deeds. Since everybody undergoes demanding circumstances on a daily basis, and most of us will not be called to perform a great deed, courage comes from those daily struggles and successes....   [tags: Gender theory, writing] 1199 words

Child Language Acquisition, Language and Gender and Attitudes to Language - ... Further more, the topic on how language reinforces notions of gender has had a significant influence on my understanding of language. Gender inequality, gender difference, sexism and other common concepts that are related to language and gender all have a very interesting background from a linguistic point of view. While gender inequality is the lack of access to power and resources, gender difference is having access to such power and resources but the choice of not using such power. If in a society, women are given all the membership roles while men are given leadership positions, then such will be gender inequality but if women deliberately refuse to choose leadership roles although they do have access, such will be a form of gender difference....   [tags: Linguistic Anthropology]

Attitudes Regarding Europe's Poor, 1450-1700 - Between 1450 and 1700, attitudes toward the European poor changed dynamically, roughly following a three-part cycle. In the late 1400's, the poor were regarded with sympathy and compassion; generous aid from both public and religious institutions was common. By the 16th Century, however, the poor were treated with suspicion and harsh measures, to ensure that they were not becoming lazy, using welfare as a substitute for labor. Beginning in the 17th Century, the attitudes toward the poor again shifted, returning to more sympathetic views and responses, though many members of the upper-class still retained the negative outlook on the destitute of the 16th Century....   [tags: European History] 675 words
