A Feminist Reading of Cheever’s The Five-Forty-Eight

- A Feminist Reading of The Five-Forty-Eight The short story "The Five-Forty-Eight" by John Cheever concerns the issue of a woman scorned by the inhumane treatment she has received by men, most notably that of Blake, whose oppression serves as the turning point in her life. This generalization is often the focus of a feminist criticism. Feminists believe that women should have equal rights as men, and they seek to "correct or supplement what they regard as a predominantly male-dominated critical perspective with a feminist consciousness" (Meyer 2014)....   [tags: Cheever five-forty-eight Essays]

- Ordinary Men or Ordinary Killers. Tens of thousands of men, women and children were shot by the Reserve Police Battalion 101 during the mass execution of the Jewish race. It is easy to believe that all who were involved in the systematic killing of the Jews were die-hard Nazis. In fact, society tells us to believe that all participants in the Holocaust were Nazi fanatics who would do anything to rid Europe of the racially unfit, but that was not always the case.

Japan's Economic History in the Last Forty Years

- ... The Japanese population has historically saved a lot and consumed little. During the times of high-speed growth, these savings, which were in banks, fueled private industry through bank loans. These funds were used to build and expand the country’s industrial infrastructure (Okimoto, 2004). Conversely, after the asset bubble burst, the economy slowed down because consumers started saving in excess (Kuepper, n.d.). One reason for why people saved more is the deflationary expectation that encouraged people to wait for their money to increase in value before spending it....   [tags: admired economies in the world]

Her theory says that Americans subscribe to a "sexuo-economic system" which reduces men to "mere earning mechanisms" and forces women to "become parasitic wives" (6, 4)....   [tags: Barbara Ehrenrech Gender Equality Essays]
