She believed that women were repressed in the hierarchy through the binary oppositions, which listed that men were calm and aggressive, which made them superior to women, who were considered emotional and submissive. This went to show, however, that the inferior must be ruled by the superior, which roughly translated to men should have dominance over women. She believed that dominance affected both genders, and it was also a binary concept. Power was dominating both genders by forcing them into ideologies that th... ... middle of paper ... ...t will appeal to people and their feelings is the perfect way to start changing and eradicating the one way with something like what is expressed in the video. They are telling the story of those who have been affected by these changes, and are telling it in a way to start changing and energizing minds to think about what the people involved have gone through, which is something that bell hooks would most definitely agree with.
The first line requests that women are allowed to be their own people: do not try to change them. Simply let women be who they are. The next two lines, together, point out that men are on top and still give themselves all the advantages. That is just the first half of it, however. The second half is making comment of how not only do they give themselves all the advantages they also fight about it.
There are many levels of freedom that can be applied such as physical and mental freedom. However to these authors mental freedom is the most important. Mental freedom is the liberty to use reason and thought to make decisions. To these authors, freedom means to be able to express themselves without being judged and be able to be independent from men. All three authors express their extreme desire for women to become independent and be taken into account by society as individuals and be treated equally as men.

Also, don't limit ourselves and just following the majority. For example, women shouldn't be in science major, or men shouldn't be in nursing. In order to stop this unequal social perception towards men and women, we should encourage girls to be involve in competitive activities that our traditional for boys only.
Civilization cannot exist without the existence of man, however, man never ceases to change the construct of his civilization. In his Civilization and Its Discontents Sigmund Freud explains the conflict in which humans experience self-entanglement, primarily due to the conflict with the self and civilization. Freud defines the conflict humans have between the self and culture, both of which are structured by civilization. Similar to Freud, Adrienne Rich also sees herself locked in conflict caused by society. However, in comparison to Freud, Rich describes these conflicts based on personal identity, whereas Freud describes conflicts based on personal desire.
Cloning should have never been banned, the action taken was inappropriate and had absolutely no factual reasoning. The statement that "Humans are not guinea pigs" is one of the most common claims made by those who oppose cloning. However, in all morally relevant respects, this is not true. Every one of us is an experiment; a result of a couple of people getting together in the back of a car, a hotel room, or some dark and secluded part of the house, throwing together the ingredients that created us. In many cases, the people who created us may not have even wanted to form a person by their actions, though they did.
Through the perspectives of a radical feminist the issue is we should see individuals, family, society or an organisation with close reference to their sociological, political, economical, race and cultural background and not based on their gender since women are considered as passive in comparison to men. The different interpretations made on the purpose of radical feminism might just be the case of this issue because radical feminist might interpret it as equality in terms of having the same freedom and opportunities as men but men are patriarchal in belief and dominance is inevitable. According to Theorizing Patriarchy (1990), Sylvia Walby suggests that patriarchy is ‘a system of social structures and practices in which men dominate, oppress and exploit women’ (1990:20). The dominance of men over women in many aspect of capi... ... middle of paper ... ... As for me, I am partially against the denial of women empowerment and influence in a society. I am not fully against this denial because I looked at it through the perspective of both men and women.
Societies run off the power of the people, and some societies use a democracy as a form of power. There are people who say that for a democracy to survive that people do not need to be educated on all subjects, they also believe that asking questions or challenging “long-held ideas” is a waste of time, because no results will be formed by them. Then there are the people that feel that someone needs to be educated just enough to survive and questions or voicing opinions on “long-held ideas” should only be done when it is absolutely mandatory. Finally, there are the people (like me) that disagree with the people above. These people believe that all education is important.
By blurring the roles of men and women, Stoker destroys all sexist beliefs held at the time, proving that women and men are equal and it is just the perception of that makes them seem unequal. The character of Mina Harker, shows the best of both men and women, creating her own role in society. She shows that it is in fact, left up to the individual, to determine what type of role he or she wants to play in society, rather than let society pick the role he or she

Although The Vindications is a response to texts written by men arguing against the rights of women, Wollstonecraft's ability to create a clear and logical argument ensured that her work would be bear considerable weight in society. Her ideas that virtue is a universal right that needs to be cultivated in men and women through education and reason is very clear and compelling. She demonstrates the benefits men would also enjoy if women were to be treated equally.
