This occurs because of the stereotype that women usually occupy the lower standard jobs; the less important ones, in other words. The positions women usually occupy include: secretaries, librarians, and teachers, because women are viewed as incapable of withholding job options such as managers, administrators, doctors, lawyers, and Members of Congress. As Shirley Chisholm declares in her speech, “The unspoken assump... ... middle of paper ... ...unately still exists today. Both Shirky and Chisholm work at publicizing this issue to society, however represent different reasons for why this issue exists. Shirky believes women are not as aggressive in demanding self-promotion as well as equality, while Shirley believes the root of gender inequality is the low amount of opportunities women are given in the workplace in comparison to men.
In turn, their political beliefs take a back seat to personality pieces, hindering their campaigns. Female candidates are then viewed less seriously as politicians, when their portrayal is so one-dimensional. Women don’t get the opportunity to engage in political discourse, when they have to spend time talking about their family, taste, and clothing. This Personal trivia then drowns out dialogue on serious issues. Women perceive the electoral arena as sexist and biased, because female candidates politics are valued less than their personality, family and appearance.
Dressing as a man is the way the women protect themselves, but as the plays progress the roles they play as men begin to influencing their actions and attitudes. The definition of a man by what he wears is so strong that in Twelfth Night Orsino still refers to Viola as her male name Cersario even after he learns she is a woman and decides to marry her.

We’re a close family, and when something unfortunate like this happens, it’s hard on everyone. I can’t imagine how tough it must be to not get to see Nana before she died. He’s really upset that I told him she was going to be okay, but I was wrong. He’s having trouble facing the grief, and instead, those intense emotions are redirected at me in the form of anger. His gender may be impacting the way he is expressing his emotions; men tend to engage in aggressive, hostile, and competitive behaviors that follow the emotion of anger.
Inner Conflict Over the course of the play Hamlet has a number of ongoing conflicts within himself. These conflicts, in my opinion, serve as Hamlet’s greatest opposition. Hamlet is first shown in a state of mourning due to the death of his father. “With such dexterity to incestuous sheets! It is not nor it cannot come to good: But break, my heart; for I must hold my tongue.” (Hamlet to self, Act I, Scene II, p. 1642) Hamlet’s failure to reveal his true feelings puts his personality into perspective and shows th...
Budget handling and debt arising out of low or reduced income is an example of a financial cause of divorce. Fighting over how to budget becomes a major problem in the marriage. In most cases, one of the partners is not content with the overspending habits of the other individual. This will cause a stressful situation which leads to an unwholesome relationship and result in a divorce. A couple struggling to make ends meet has the potential to cause conflict within the marriage.
Iago says, "I'm not what I am." Henry V says, "Presume not that I am the thing I was." What Shakespeare seems to be doing is breaking down identities. We develop a discourse of pattern-based predictions about who people are and how they will behave. When people act differently or out of our perception of their character we assume something is wrong.
215-222). Iago makes him believe that he is only telling him about his wife’s infidelity because he loves him. He uses his closeness to Othello against him by making him think that he is looking out for his best interest, even though he is actually making him out to be a fool. Hamlet also has a problem when it comes to being manipulated. Claudius tried to fool Hamlet and the entire kingdom that he knew nothing about his brother’s death.
This insecurity proves his undoing. His positive self-image gone, he is left a choice between "the Moor" or nothingness. The moment Emilia realizes Othello is the murderer she reverts to calling him expressions connected to the negative image of "the Moor": "And you the blacker devil!...thou art a devil." (V, ii, 129, 131) He can't stand being this person, the only one society and the symbolic order can offer him. To construct his own identity has proven impossible.

Upon looking at this secondary criticism it shows us another dimension of argument for Gertrude's innocence as a character. Gertrude's character is very equivocal in that she can be interpreted in many ways, and there be strong arguments for both sides. Gertrude's character is strongly influenced by her stage portrayal. I think Shakespeare did this intentionally to keep a certain ambiguity about the character.
