Modern Feminism and Violence Against Women - ... (Dekeserdy, 2011, para.1). Violence against women such as rape, harassment or assault against women is not a simply issues that affects individual women but rather a social phenomenon because it is the imbalance of power between men and women. Throughout history women were seeing as property of men. VanNatta (2005) stated that, “many men grew up believing that they have a right to assert their property in whatever way they deem fit. Traditional male gender socialization often encourages men to be aggressive and to combine aggression and sexuality.” Whereby the forms of violence or the fear of violence depicted by men has created a invaluable social control for men and a patriarchy traditions which now enable women to be submissive thus resulting in women restricting certain activities and accepting what is term womanly roles and as a result women are less likely to challenge their male counterparts for male dominant jobs or debate them on certain issues....   [tags: Gender Studies]

Media Violence Against Women - Media Violence Against Women       In the United States, as well as throughout the majority of the world, people are bombarded with information on a daily basis.  The majority of the information that it seen or heard is a direct result of someone  aiming the information at the masses.  Whether it is a company that would like us to buy it's product, or a newspaper that would have us believe a certain "fact" that they are reporting, someone has decided how the information will be presented.  This notion brings me to the issue of how our society perpetuates violence against women through the use of the media and television shows.  I would argue that, because we are socialized on a daily basis to believe certain ideas, this same process contributes to the violence aimed toward women.  This encompasses the concept that impressionable young men may remain unaware of the impact of this violence by the omission of certain facts from news articles.  It is also important to  see how the media contributes to the way in which the abused women see their role in the "creation" of this violence.  Furthermore, I would reason that these media outlets create a certain type of apathy in our society that has caused many people to either blame the victim, or just turn their heads and consider domestic violence a "family" problem, thus ignoring the legal ramifications altogether....   [tags: Argumentative Persuasive Topics]
