The dehumanization of women is a struggle that the female population has been subjected to for even longer than the earliest recorded history. Women have been made into scapegoats throughout our history that has fortified this ignorance of why women shouldn’t be treated as equals. The ideas that have been established (and are still constantly being created) have been reinforced by religions, governments and the policies/laws, cultures, and even commonly other women and are continuing an internalized oppression upon women. The conversation of equality for women is often hijacked by erroneous thinking that this is a problem of the past. They also have played a role in the suppression of women’s rights and still play a major role in prevention of actual equality.
Also the way men and women communicate are very different. Men are very different than women they do not like to communicate as much like women. Men don’t talk about their problems and women love to talk about them. Communication is seen as one major cause leading to a relationship failure. When couples get married the women is always looking for a good comuincator.
Judy Brady’s essay presents an effective approach on how wives should be given an equally chance in a household to express themselves with their dreams. Women are often portrayed by men as weak and not worthy of equality such as men. However, Brady removes the blindfold off many as she zoom’s the treatment of a wife just because she is a female. Likewise the continuous of the phrase “I want a wife” portrays men as weak because they are dependent on someone else in their life. The image that society creates on men and women continue on by people who don’t understand the value and worthiness of a female.
When John Steinbeck mocks feminism he is trying to show how woman in the story are dominated by a male or by a male society in general. The work is introduced by finding the fault against all women. In the times when John Steinbeck wrote the story, The Chrysanthemums, women were seen as inferior. Many times men and women would perform a equal task, but the women would be oppressed just because of their gender The women were not seen in the same respect in any aspect that men were. The portrayal of women greatly influenced the way John Steinbeck wrote this story.
Women’s rights has been a long standing issue, going back centuries. The idea has been around for so long that every other question of equality relates back to women’s rights. Startlingly, despite being an issue for centuries, the modern world has, yet, to give women the full extent of social, economic, and political rights as they give to men. The solution to this divide is simple, and lies in a modern ideology: feminism. Many people tune out when they hear the word ‘feminism’- they imagine a loud, screechy protestor who calls everything a man does sexist.
Galinda does not only represent the homema... ... middle of paper ... ...n her a strong-will that makes her intimidating to the men. Creon himself says that the need to control and defeat her is greater because she is a woman. Antigone rebels against gender roles and social structure (Jacobs). Conclusion Women and men fear the thought of an empowered woman and the thought of feminism. Women fear that will be punished by men if they stand against them and fear that being a feminist will make them cruel and lonely.
“Feminism is both an intellectual commitment and a political movement that seeks justice for women and the end of sexism in all forms” (Baptiste). Just as in the past, feminism continues to act as a controversial issue among men and women. In the 1960’s, women finally addressed workplace inequity and created woman organizations to achieve equality. In the early 1960’s, the Equal Pay Act and the Civil Rights Act set a milestone for women’s progression towards work equality. Though women have made great leaps towards true equality, women still face many challenges and continue to be categorized as the subservient gender.
Feministic Women in history were subjected to an oppressed role, which men were in control. Many of these women created groups to talk about these problems such as the Seneca Falls. Women fought for equality, but some were happy with the status quo, and some simply became the change. Initially, women fought for equality to end the oppressed rule of a man and wanted to be equal to a man in every way possible, women soon called themselves Feminists. Women in general, were forced to marry a man that the father saw fit to the daughter but this sometimes brought years of abuse and cruelty to the women.
Therefore, Nora's decision to leave her husband and family is ironic because it proves to be the "miracle" she is waiting for, rather than the one she originally expected. Nora becomes a feminist heroine in the play by showing what women can achieve, but rarely attempt. The determinism that many men force on their women partners in society (in forms of control, dominance, and power) restricts the women's ability to strengthen as individuals, and gain their own self-determinism.
Society defines gender roles where men are at the same disadvantage as women. Our society contemplates that gender roles affect how men and women are treated on a daily basis. Women are primarily the ones who are concerned about this and fear that men are treated as the better fragment but are they really? They are fighting to equate females to the same status as men, which are known to be called Feminist. These Feminists believe in the theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes.
