In Kondracki’s The Whistleblower, the government is portrayed as an organization filled with broad issues and mistrust. This film tackles misrepresentation of governmental power, the many threads connecting to lies and greed, and personal problems that stem from objectifying women. In “The Whistleblower,” many examples show women being the inferior object to men as Patriarchal women. The Patriarchal women explain that men typically has all the power in deciding what is right and what is wrong and that women should obey as if they are submissive like an animal. That being said, the movie portrays the external forces (i.e. cops, peace corps, military squads, etc.) are comprised of the majority of males taking that positions as good officers and one women who clearly shows she’s the odd one out to them. I’m about this one woman, as she is the one whom the movie is focusing on, in

Christine Jessop was a nine year old girl who after bring dropped off by the school bus at her home in Queensville, decided to ride her bike to the park nearby to meet with her friends. After stopping to buy some gum at the local store, she was last seen walking her bike up her driveway by her friend Kim Warren. She did not keep her appointment with her friend at the park, and would never be seen alive again (Anderson & Anderson, 2009). This small town instantly became involved in the search for the missing girl, but with very little evidence to go on time passed, and hope began to diminish for the safe return home of Jessop. On New Year’s Eve 1984, eighty-nine days after Jessop went missing, her body was found badly decomposed in a bush by Fred Patterson fifty-five kilometers from Queensville. An autopsy would later revival that she was raped and mutilated (Anderson & Anderson, 2009). The police still did not have a suspect in the case nor did they have any leads, but now that her body was found the police and the small town were the topic of media, increasing pressure on the police to figure out what had happened to this little girl.
Women bring unique skills and techniques to policing such as: compassion and understanding during undesirable and traumatic incidents. Although, women do not possess the muscles or physical strength as the male officers, they do have effective invaluable interpersonal skills. Females are viewed as threats by their male peers. Women face prejudice, peer bullying, and sometimes sexual harassment during their career in law enforcement (Criminal Justice School Info, 2014). The male officers believe that women have unfair advantages when it comes to getting promotions or advancements. In actuality, a lot of women in law enforcement are afraid to apply for higher positions due to fear of maltreatment by the male officers. Women who work in law enforcement often feel as if they must “prove themselves” beca...
Currently there are women directing seven major institutions in the federal and local government: the drug enforcement administration, secret service of D.C Metropolitan P.D, U.S Park Service, FBI’s Washington field office, U.S Marshals service and Amtrak P.D, and the Far-Flung agency (Johnson). Ground breaking events have happened in 2015 within the Secret Service and the Washington FBI’s field office two women, Julia Pierson and Valerie Parlave were appointed, making them the first women to direct these two institutions. Three other women heading agencies in Washington are Michele Leonhart, at the Drug Enforcement Agency; Stacia Hylton, the U.S Marshals Service; and Teresa Chambers, U.S. Park Police (Johnson). The hiring of these women are monumental, these women can stand as proof that sex has nothing to do with your ability to be in law
All women should hold rights equal to men because a society governed by men and women as a unit would promote stability and peace. In “The Destructive Male” written by Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Stanton argues through diction and the employment of ethos, pathos, and logos that giving rights to women, and allowing women to hold positions in politics and government, would be beneficial to the whole of society.
Women are often more disadvantaged due to gender biases that leave women invisible in the plight against them. According to Opotow, (2001) bystanders often show little to no empathy towards women and leave them in the shadows as problem solvers. Poor
Throughout all of humanity, people have been shunning other people for many reasons. Whether it be the differences between two people or the wrongdoings of a person, it almost seems like human nature for people to turn away from each other. A person would think that over time, society would become more accepting of others, but instead, it seems that the things that have been seen to be unfit for society in the past still hold true today. Traditions and beliefs are still prevalent today, and when someone goes against them, it is seen as a reason to create a pariah out of the person. Whether it’d be the lepers of the past or the whistleblowers of today, shunning is still commonplace in todays society.
In the majority of early cultures and societies, women have always been considered subservient and inferior to men. Since the first wave of feminism in the 19th century, women began to revolt against those prejudicial social boundaries by branching out of the submissive scope, achieving monumental advances in their roles in civilization. However, gender inequality is still prevalent in developed countries. Women frequently fall victim to gender-based assault and violence, suffer from superficial expectations, and face discriminatory barriers in achieving leadership roles in employment and equal pay. Undoubtedly, women have gained tremendous recognition in their leaps towards equal opportunity, but to condone these discrepancies, especially
Women, in the past decades, have undergone a revolution. They have earned the right to vote and the right to be a man’s equal under the law. They have confronted the obsolete values of male superiority. They have even manage to destabilize the firm belief that only men could be in power. Despite these accomplishments, women have also made a point that we are not equal, simply, men aren’t superior to any women.
In almost every society women have been oppressed at some point. Although things gave gotten better on women oppression by men is still there. In American society today, women do not make as much as men in the workplace but feminists still seek to be equal to me in every way. “The Yellow Wallpaper”, by Charlotte Perkins Gilman and “A Rose for Emily”, by William Faulkner, both give social critiques of the male dominated society that they are living in. While their critiques have both differences and similarities, “The Yellow Wallpaper”, not only gave this critique before “ A Rose for Emily”, but more effectively as well.
Through the intelligent use of various concrete appeals, Elizabeth Cady Stanton brings to light the injustices against women and provokes the audience to take action and form a better nation. Her words pull the heartstrings of the audience while adding emphasis to the wrongdoings happening every day. She calls for gender equality, not just in social life, but in civic and political as well. Among a plethora of inequality, her words ring true. “The right is ours,” she asserts. “The right is ours.”
As much as men are working, so are women, but ultimately they do not face the same obstacles. For example, “Even if one subscribes to a solely economic theory of oppression, how can one ignore that over half of the world's workers are female who suffer discrimination not only in the workplace, but also at home and in all the areas sex-related abuse” (Moraga 98). This gives readers a point of view in which women are marginalized in the work place, at home, and other areas alike. Here Moraga gives historical accounts of Chicana feminists and how they used their experiences to give speeches and create theories that would be of relevance. More so, Moraga states how the U.S. passes new bills that secretly oppress the poor and people of color, which their community falls under, and more specifically, women. For instance, “The form their misogyny takes is the dissolution of government-assisted abortions for the poor, bills to limit teenage girls’ right to birth control ... These backward political moves hurt all women, but most especially the poor and "colored." (Moraga 101). This creates women to feel powerless when it comes to control one’s body and leads them to be oppressed politically. This places the government to act as a protagonist, and the style of writing Moraga places them in, shines more light to the bad they can do, especially to women of color. Moraga uses the words, “backward moves”

Today more and more people are finding out about this sad industry. In Alaska my brother goes out in the streets to help save these girls in sex trafficking.

The Scarlet Letter can easily be seen as an early feminist piece of work. Nathaniel Hawthorne created a story that exemplifies Hester as a strong female character living with her choices, whether they were good or bad, and also as the protagonist. He also presents the daughter of Hester, Pearl, as an intelligent female, especially for her age. He goes on to prove man as imperfect through both the characters of Dimmesdale and of Chillingworth. With the situation that all the characters face, Hawthorne establishes the female as the triumphant one, accomplishing something that, during Nathaniel Hawthorne’s time, authors did not attempt.
A Call to Action: Women, Religion, Violence, and Power involves the issues of discrimination and injustice towards women all over the world. Former President Jimmy Carter has raised awareness to everyone in society and made them realize the pure wrongdoings that have occurred. Not only does Carter explain the horrible mistreatment of women throughout the world, he presents a “call to action” that can help stop the madness. Men always establish themselves to be above women and women have been mostly forgotten about. Today, things are much different and a lot of women play the dominant role in society. Women are continuing to propel in the work force and prove that they can do what men do.
