The identity established by women-selves have a larger impact on female sexuality because it representing who she wants to be. Messages and advises in book, magazines, movies and television shows seems to direct young women what they “ought to” do. But those messages are contradictory against each other, therefore, those messages confused twenty-something young women when they had not yet figure out what they want. Bell argues that “these contradictory directives leave young women in a bind, and without much help in figuring out what they actually want”(Bell 27). Yong women nowadays receive a good training on academic and career field.
Extensive research, endless stories and our personal histories have shown us the long-lasting impact on relational aggression amongst young girls in middle school. Regardless of the ways in which this aggression is played out in our schools, the adverse effects on adolescent girls are massive and damaging. Rather than consistently socializing these young women to believe that they are inherently different – more fragile, more emotional, ‘less than’, we as teachers need to be working at the grassroots level to show their commonality in the same struggles, and how building community with one another will not only save their lives but assist them in becoming successful global citizens. Relational aggression comes in a myriad of ways and those can change daily thanks to our ever-evolving technological world. While just 10-15 years ago another girl spreading a rumor about another girl at school could have been immensely damaging, those same rumors today could be spread via social media outlets such as Facebook or Twitter, and those same insults can reach hundreds, if not thousands of other students (and parents) each day.
Her story is too common around America’s high schools. Girls with low self esteem are affected in all areas of their lives including relationships with family members, teachers, and friends. Even though the low self esteem may stem from circumstances involving the teen’s family, there are resources that can help teens if the school will open the door to providing these tools to teens through classes. These classes may be the ticket helping the Phoebe Prince’s of the world to feel like they have something to live for after all.
In addition, to point out the difficulties that school counselors experienced to help students with high risk mental problems. For example, due to the limited time that a school counselor has to actually use to the fullest his or her counseling skills in a school setting, the school counselor may face difficulties identifying students’ mental health problems (Gruman, et al., 2013). The main purpose of this article was to explain the importance of the elements that were used to transform the school program, and how incorporating counseling interventions in a school setting helps the students academically and their overall well-being. One important element of this transformation was the Navigation 101 guidance program, which is a program where teachers, administration, school counselors, and parents had access to input and track the student status. This program with the help of those who worked and care for students help t... ... middle of paper ... ... lost when it comes to school counseling duties, school systems, or programs that are allow to used in a school setting, but this article gave me a understanding of how programs can help school counselors on assisting students' needs.
But too many people are too quick to pass judgment; the word elicits a preconceived political map and people chart my beliefs in relation to that word, thinking that because they know I am a feminist, they know exactly what I am about. Wrong. The tragedy is that these misconceptions have steered people away from issues of feminism. I have encountered many strong-willed, independent-minded young women who sympathize with the movement's goals but who refuse to call themselves feminists because they fear the assumptions that others will make about them. Society needs to stop assuming and start understanding.
It is often treated as another form of bullying (Sadker, 1999). While this is a good policy, too often the concerns of female students are written off as them being overdramatic or not understanding boys (Hand & Sanchez, 2000). This allows the hostile environment to continue, something that is a clear violation of Title IX (Stone, 2015). After a study into the issue of sexual harassment in schools (van der Zande, 2008), the America Association of University Women developed a resource guide to train students and staff alike in how to prevent and appropriately address sexual harassment. This program addresses the seriousness of the behaviour and empowers students to stand up for themselves and report sexual harassment.
Advertisers spend large amounts of money on psychological research and focus groups, and what have they learned? That women are vulnerable to the promise of a relationship with a product and these advertisers make use of this on the basis that purchasing and use of certain products will resolve women’s social, emotional, and financial difficulties. We’ve all heard the phrase ‘You can never be too rich or too thin.’ The most widely read magazine among teenage girls, Seventeen, states that it ‘encourages independence’ and is a girl’s ‘Bible,’ but more than half of the magazine is fashion, beauty, and boys. It teaches adolescents that the most important thing on their minds should be appearance and attracting men. Through advertising, these young women are encouraged to portray themselves as sweet and passive, but sexy and attractive.
Barbie became a huge success despite the negative feedback they received. In 1963, Barbie released an additional doll which included a book in her packaging title “How to lose weight and recommended “Don’t eat”!”. “From the beginning, the 11.5-inch toy has also been a proxy for battles over the role of women in society.” (Dockterman). As the doll carries much controversy of how a women’s body is supposed to look like, the National Organization for Women begin a strike in New York in 1970. “Some marchers carry signs reading “I Am Not a Barbie Doll.” (Dockterman).
The statistics in this article provide logical proof to appeal to the audience. Britz's main goal in the article is to make people understand the prejudice against girls and reasons why it is there. She mostly uses pathos in her article, but also mixes in some ethos and logos. The pathos comes through the sympathy for her daughter and the rejected girls. Being both a mother and admissions officer the author gains credibility and the trust of the reader.
