Instead, girls were forced to behave docilely and not participate in class for fear of being ridiculed. In both cases, the gender disparity is clear. Girls are treated inferiorly and boys are given preference, perpetuating gender bias and giving acceptance to gender based violence. To make matters worse, both Dunne (2007) and Mutekwe and Modiba (2013) found that it was common for male teachers to have the girls do housework for them. Not only does this reinforces heteronormative roles, but in some cases as a student reports, “Teachers will say they are in love with you so they will ask you clean their house, wash their clothes, but when you fall pregnant they will leave you to drop out of school and suffer” (Muteke and Modiva, 2013, p. 26).
Examine the role of Inspector Goole in the play “An Inspector Calls” by J.B. Priestley. “An inspector calls” by J.B. Priestley is a fairly unusual Murder-Mystery play as it does not have a single murderer, but a group that contributed to a young woman’s suicide. This peculiarity also continues in that all of those accused are totally unaware of their involvement until they are forced to work it out for themselves, with a little help from the Inspector. Inspector Goole, in the play “An Inspector Calls”, plays a very important role in the message the play gives. Set in 1912, a time of great confidence in the future of the country, but written in 1945, the play shows Priestley’s views of the world in 1945, but projects them, via the Inspector, onto the Birlings.
Nevertheless, in both pieces of literature Browning recognizes the status of women in society. In The Cry of the Children the poem focuses on the poor treatment of children, yet the role of women in Victorian England is still evident. Throughout the poem The Feminine Education of Aurora Leigh issues of gender inequality are apparent through the inadequate teachings and the repressed attitude of Aurora Leigh's aunt. In the poem, The Cry of the Children Browning explores the labour of children in mines and factories. The poem is written in response to the child abuse constituted from labour, yet the notion of gender... ... middle of paper ... ...n of Aurora Leigh.
This sociological analysis will define the role of sociological imagination when defining the social conflict of submissive female genders in the modern institution of marriage. Mills’ (1959) theory of sociological imagination defines the broader gender values that affect the submissive role of women as “domestic servants” in the patriarchal household. The “outcome” of gender role inequality is founded on dysfunctional families that cannot work past the conflict between men and women. More so, higher divorce rates are common factors that define why a patriarchal domestic sphere leads to fighting and stress between marital partners. Many women feel disempowered and angry at being seen as a “domestic servant” in their daily lives due to these
The Meaning Of An Inspector Calls by J.B. Priestley J.B.Priestley's "An Inspector Calls" is a good play that attacks the social problems of its time; it contains all the ingredients of a well-made play. This is because it is very dramatic, and it has the attention of the audience. It gets this by the use of climaxes, the slow plot of a detective with persevering style. Despite this the author is concerned with the darker side of the world. The play is Priestley's attempt to try to say this.
So the super natural adds an element of mystery and fear to audience appeal. To counter act this supernatural, Shakespeare adds violence just to spice up the play some more. Through out the play there is constant violence, murder and suspense. This is spoken of more than it is actually acted, but there is definitely a very violent under tone to the play. Which interests the audience immensely As this violence builds up as the play ends, the scenes become shorted to heighten this suspense.
The Irony of William Shakespeare's Othello Irony plays a great role in ?The Tragedy of Othello?. The villain, Iago, plans from the very beginning of the play to ruin Othello?s life. All the major characters in the play believe that Iago is an honest and trustworthy person. The tragic irony is that Iago fools them all. Throughout the whole play Iago manipulates the people around him and lies to them.
All three of the stories, “Full Circle”, “Wasp’s Nest”, and “The Uderly Perfect Murder” are examples of real cases being solved by skewing the law for the good and/or bad outcome of the case. Justice is always served and given to one person and not the other. In the three stories justice is given to two or more people. In “Full Circle” Caroline received justice because her murderer was then killed in a car accident. Caroline’s murderer however did not receive justice because he was not given a trial to have the opportunity to opt out of the punishment of murder (Grafton 753).
In this part of the play you learn a lot about the social system of that era, the way people acted, and the way they thought. The doorbell, and the arrival of an Inspector interrupt their 'celebration'. From now on the mood changes, contrasting the light-hearted and happy mood; it now becomes tense and serious. The Inspector reveals each characters involvement in the death of Eva Smith, side by side with the flaws and evils in each characters' personality. This slowly reveals to the audience that the Inspector is a lot more then he seems, and that the play is not only a 'murder mystery', but also resembles a moralistic play of the middle ages, but in it's own socialistic manner.
I could use this by relating how Nora realizes the stereotyped views on women in society and from there her whole perspective on the world changes. In A Doll’s House, Nora lives in the stereotypical world where women are looked at as inferior and this is looked at as normal. Even today people often think of women as having mainly household roles. Also, this source can connect with The Giver when it talks about cultural assimilation and how Jonah was taught the way of the world throughout his childhood and knew nothing else until he got his assignment. This source relates to my thesis in showing how stereotypical norms and cultural assimilation is often linked with corruption and the perception of the world.
