She mentions that men are women’s kings and governors; they care for women and work day and night to cater to their needs therefore women should take their boots off when they arrive home; women owe men obedience. Pieces of writing like these promote gender stereotype and assists its prevalence. However, in the Hunger Games the roles are exchanged. When Katniss’s dad dies, she essentially becomes the ‘man’ of the house providing her family with food and what is necessary for them to survive. She’s an exceptional hunter and hardworking survivor whose main priority is her family’s well being.
Many workers started their work day at five in the morning and would not return home until seven in the evening. During this time they were allowed two half-hour breaks, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, and one hour break for dinner. Girls no longer could lea... ... middle of paper ... ...

One thing my grandma would always say every time she was doing work around the house is that, “A woman’s work is never done.” Posted on an online magazine website author, Jessica Grose, wrote an article titled “Cleaning: The Final Feminist Frontier,” published March 13th, 2013. As she got into the article she argues that men in our lives more recently started taking on more of the childcare and cooking, while the cleaning still falls unfairly on women. Jessica Grose starts to build her credibility with personal facts and using reputable sources. As she is starting out her article she begins to set the stage with an image in your mind of her own specific event of her being trapped inside her apartment with her husband for thirty-six hours. While his father was going to come over after being trapped inside, she insisted on cleaning up the house even though her husband said his dad didn’t mind the house being messy due to magazines, beef jerky wrappers and empty soup cans.
Having compassion for others is important because you can learn new things from others and possibly get a different view on things. Cleanliness is important to me because It keeps my body healthy and fresh of foul odors. Family is a big one for me because they are what can usually always come back to for support and help with things in life. . Persistence is a great core value to have because usually when things start to get difficult some people tend to just give up.
“Of the 41.8 million children under 15 who lived with two parents last year, more than 25% had mothers who did not work and stayed home, according to a Census Bureau report,” Genaro Armas writes. This is an increase of stay at home parents which maybe because of the economic boom. Many people are wondering why you would give up a job, and economic security just to raise your kids. What most don’t realize is that you are taking on another job when you take care if your kids. The Census Bureau also reported that 55% of women who gave birth between July 1999 and July 2000 returned to the labor force within a year of having their babies.
They are against day care because they think day care is not safe for children. These men share with their wives everything they experience . In my opinion, men and women should have equity for career work and inside the home. I believe if women have the same jobs men do, they should get the same pay and opportunity as men. For instance, women have the same pressure, responsibility, and accountability.
These women are not as well off as the aforementioned groups of women. These women are expected to not only fit into their place in society, but also to guide their husband in the right financial place. Where widows were to get advisors to help make their decisions, artisans’ wives were to “…firmly…convince him to accept any work,” unless he could not complete it with skill. This woman was incharge of reigning in her husband. De Pizan writes that “she should also encourage her husband to let them live within their income so that their expenses will not be greater than their earnings, (de Pizan).” This is crucial for this time period because there was nowhere an artisan could get a loan if he were in trouble.
The Ellen Goodman quote on page 168, “the cultural consensus still says that professional mothers should be home with the kids while welfare mothers should be out working” is really funny to me that there is such a strong hypocrisy about whether mothers should work or not. It’s as if everyone has a the perfect simple solution, but it‘s not perfect. You are poor then you should work, but if you work, then you are not a good mother. A single mother cannot win! Also on page 168 a court case was mentioned where a felon father was granted custody over a child, rather than giving custody to the child’s lesbian mother.
Men should have authority. Women should have a share of authority to keep from have complete dominance from women. Husbands and wives should have a share of equal responsibilities and a share of should have an equal workload rather than having the wife stay at home all day and do house duties and men working all day. A majority of things in a relationship should be equal. Works Cited Rhoads,Steven E.

This may partially be due to his work obligations, and the fact that his wife died which Scout was only a baby. Instead of their mother, his colored house maid and cook, Calpurnia, is a positive influence on the children and maintains order in the home. His sister, Aunt Alexandra, is critical of this parenting approach. She is especially particular about making Scout into a lady, declaring that Scout “wasn’t supposed to be doing things that required pants” and that she should “behave like a sunbeam” to brighten her father’s lonely life (Lee 81).
