The Depiction of Women in Combat Roles

- According to the observations of Vogel, Porter and Kebbell (2014: 91), women who are associated with violence e.g. within terrorist or counter-terrorist operations, are treated with fascination, or are put forward as examples of the abnormal. As a consequence, these views also perpetrates a pervasive discourse that still sees women as are an unusual presence on the frontline of battlefields, with the “large-scale participation” of women in what is still seen as a male-dominated role treated in a dismissive nature (91)....   [tags: social issues, women's role]

Historical Monograph And The Depiction Of The Film

- There are still fairly serious discrepancies between Davis’s actual historical monograph and the depiction in the film. Most importantly, we see the trail in Toulouse in the film opened for the public while the fact is that “sixteenth-century criminal justice is always secret; there are no spectators until the sentence is read.” Moreover, the monograph positions Bertrande as being opposed to having an imposter for a husband as she openly rejected him as soon as she realised that he was not Martin Guerre....   [tags: Capital punishment, Prison, Identity theft]

This Unrealistic Depiction of Nurses on Television

- When one imagines a female nurse in America, one may think of a smiling woman in pink scrubs helping a new mother care for her baby, a comforting hand to hold in a time of need, or even a soft voice counting, “One, two, three...” before administering an injection. Nursing is a profession that is dominated by women at ninety-two percent (US Department of Labor) and is accurately characterized by its commitment to the care for individuals and the promotion of healthy living. According to the American Nursing Association’s Code of Ethics, “The nurse, in all professional relationships, practices with compassion and respect for the inherent dignity, worth, and uniqueness of every individual, unr...   [tags: Nursing]

Depiction Of Women By Nathaniel Hawthorne

- Throughout literary history, the depiction of women has taken on various forms. One may attempt to assign feminism to a distinct category. However, it can be analyzed that even within one author’s collection of writings, contradictions are present. Within many of Nathaniel Hawthorne’s works women are portrayed as vulnerable, weak and submissive, this image of women was accepted by many during Hawthorne’s time. Conversely, this image of vile and submissive behavior was disrupted when Hawthorne came out with Scarlet Letter, which depicted women as the heroine rather than the damsel in distress....   [tags: Young Goodman Brown, Nathaniel Hawthorne]

The Depiction Of Native Americans

- The depiction of Native Americans to the current day youth in the United States is a colorful fantasy used to cover up an unwarranted past. Native people are dressed from head to toe in feathers and paint while dancing around fires. They attempt to make good relations with European settlers but were then taken advantage of their “hippie” ways. However, this dramatized view is particularly portrayed through media and mainstream culture. It is also the one perspective every person remembers because they grew up being taught these views....   [tags: Native Americans in the United States]

Depiction of Trans Women in Mainstream Television

- The depiction of trans women in mainstream television has been offensive, insulting and derogatory, and it can be argued that this depiction reflects mainstream and heteronormative America’s opinions on transgender life. Television has presented trans women as imposters, placing them into two categories: deceptive or pathetic. The GLAAD article “Victims or Villains: Examining Ten Years of Transgender Images on Television,” examines over 100 episodes on mainstream television that contained transgender characters since 2002....   [tags: Offensive, Insulting, Derogatory, Television]

The Atomic Model Is Not A Concrete Depiction Of An Atom

- The atomic model is not a concrete depiction of an atom. Scientists cannot base their models on actual observations because the atom is too small to be seen even with the most sensitive instruments. Due to this restriction, scientists have had to come up with a model that accounts for the observations that they make. As new observations are made, the atomic model evolves. The most notable contributions to the atomic model were made by Democritus, John Dalton, J.J. Thompson, Ernest Rutherford, and Niels Bohr....   [tags: Atom, Electron, Electric charge, Niels Bohr]
