People have come to the conclusion that Planned Parenthood needs to be defunded because they provide abortions, and also because of their involvement in selling fetuses to stem cell research. Should they be defunded? Should their funds for such things like birth control or mammograms be
A contractual undertaking whereby the natural or surrogate mother, for a fee, agrees to conceive a child through artificial insemination with sperm of the natural father, to bear and deliver the child to the natural father, and to terminate all of her parental rights subsequent to the child’s birth.” The literal meaning of word ‘surrogate’ is ‘substitute’. Surrogacy arrangements are motivated by a desire for a genetically related child and the disincentive arising out of the prolix adoption procedures coupled with difficulty in finding suitable child for adoption. The word surrogate, from Latin surrogatus, means appointed to act in place of. Surrogacy is an arrangement between a woman and a couple or individual to carry and deliver a baby. A surrogate mother is a woman who carries a child for someone else, usually a couple struggling with fertility issues.
In contrast to past gender stereotypes, they argue that girls should be strong, independent, and intelligent. Orenstein takes a second wave feminism approach, meaning females are just as capable as males. She references how she commonly writes about feminism and warning parents of a “preoccupation of body and beauty” in order to pull for a change in society (327). The beauty standards give women an impossible set of goals deterring their confidence. In addition to unrealistic standards, Orenstein is alarmed by the growing popularity of princesses because she views them as “retrograde role models” (329).
Her mother gave her everything she desired, but still she wanted more. A prime example is when she faked her pregnancy to scam money from her “husband”. Veda was merely concerned about money, and how to obtain more of it. Money was her sense of happiness, and contributed to power.
Elizabeth The book Pride and Prejudice is a story of an empowered woman named Elizabeth living in a misogynistic world. The excerpt from A Vindication of the Rights of Women (AVOTROW) focuses on the misogynistic world that Elizabeth lives in and challenges it, much like Elizabeth. During that time, Elizabeth would have been considered a feminist, she did not fit into the social constructs given to her sex. She focused her energy into strengthening her mind, and she believed in marrying for love instead of money which was revolutionary. The Vindication of the Rights of Women state that at the time, women were unequal to men intellectually because they are women, and the only way for them to have a future is to marry for profit.
In Machinal, the role of the mother must be someone harsh, but also one who conforms to society’s standards. Meryl Strep specifically expresses this vibe. She would be able to effectively and convincingly be materialistic, as she wants her daughter (Young Women/Helen) to marry for money. Meryl Strep has a presence about her that would make anyone squirm (ex. Young Women).
Our social and cultural construct on women’s values society has created has only been about making a profit. Capitalist only care about mass profit disregard the dangerous effects on women. Such companies demean women by calling them fat or ugly because they don’t look like the ideal, forcing them to conform and buy products like makeup and “waist
In “America and I” Anzia envisions her American Dream as making a comfortable living off self-expression. However, she isn’t taken seriously and when she explains her dilemma with the vocational officer “shrugs her shoulder away from me with the look of pity we give to cripples and hopeless lunatics”. The use of metaphor indicates the consensus of society would perceive her as insane because her plan of attaining the American Dream is unheard of at the time. These are only a few examples of how women do not have the same chance of attaining the American Dream as their male counterparts, therefore proving that the American Dream does not reflect
Forcing her marry Tartuffe for the purpose of having children is another way he is exploiting his daughter in relation to money. Mariane is being taken advantage of for the sole purpose of money again, but now it is also in association with a child worthy of inheriting wealth. Both the husband and future child are seen as more important than the daughter is. In a way, the daughter is almost seen as nothing because she does not have a say in who she marries or what happens with the family wealth; even though she is a direct family member who, one would assume, has some role in. Moreover, it is clear that women are objectified and mainly seen as a way to control who the family’s wealth goes
