Society has made an effect on every person, it could affect you positively or negatively. Mildred, Montag’s wife, in the book Fahrenheit 451, by Ray Bradbury, is not the world’s best wife. Society has brought her down to this level because the community does not want the civilians to be thinking for themselves. It is as if the generation is being controlled with what they are able to say, or even do. These people are not allowed to live their own lives because of the fact that the society doesn’t want them to do so.
Katso Sebina 1623703 Anthropology Annotated Bibliography An annotated bibliography discussing the different perspectives of female circumcision This bibliography discusses the different anthropological aspects of female circumcision, which mostly occurs in Northern Africa. The different sources show that female circumcision is closely tied to religion, particularly Islam, and does not only occur in Northern Africa. Some are heavily against the practice; while others believe that it is necessary due to hygienic factors. Silverman, Eric K. "Anthropology And Circumcision | Annual Review Of Anthropology".

Women in the 1600s to the 1800s were very harshly treated. They were seen as objects rather than people. They were stay-at-home women because people didn’t trust them to hold jobs. They were seen as little or weak. Women living in this time period had to have their fathers choose their husbands.
Abstract women have been living very miserable lives throughout the history somewhere because of gender differences and somewhere base on lame excuses of religion. They do not have equal rights, freedom, opportunities as men and have been suffering gender-based violence perpetuated towards them in the male dominated society. Afghan women show great strength and resistance in the face of adverse circumstances. They have developed traumatic problems and in reaction to their problems, they have grown very resilience to the Afghan tradition and men harsh treatment. The research entitled “Trauma and Resistance of Afghan Women: A Critical Study of Khaled Hosseini’s Novel “A Thousand Splendid Suns”, was intended to critically analyze the novel to explore trauma and resistance of Afghan women.
For example Anthony says, “but this oligarchy of sex, which makes father, brothers, husband, sons, the oligarchs over the mother and sisters, the wife and daughters, of every household” This is very sad since women and girls should not be ruled or told what to do because they are thought of to be less than man. The constitution is in place to have a unified country not to have an oligarchy of men lead households. The pathos appeal is used to show what suffering women are going through due to men ruling them, and not knowing how to fight back. Susan B. Anthony in her speech also says, “Are women persons?.....and no state has the right to make a law, or to enforce an old law, that shall abridge their privileges and immunities.”, which also connects with the emotions of the audience. She is trying to make people feel bad that women are treated less even though they are just as righteous as men to have the same privileges.
Killer Women The old days were somewhat different because women had no right to decide anything of their own lives. Unfortunately these stories show in common these two women who like many others are dedicated to their husbands by 100%. Often women are not valued as good wives and are battered and bruised and in other cases are left aside by things deemed men are more important. These stories show us that for many years there is mistreatment of women and divorces. Today abuse and divorce are more and more in everyday life.
Woman’s dreams of making it big have been crushed since the beginning of time because of the fact that they are women. People thinking they can’t make it because of the simple fact that others looked down on them because of their gender. Having others bringing them down because there’s no way that a woman can make it in movies and in pictures in the 30’s. It tore down Curley’s Wife until she was nothing. She probably felt like nothing hence the reason why she felt the need to push herself on anybody who was willing to show her attention, that didn’t end well for her.
This proved to be difficult when the suffragists tried to get their point across. They were often scoffed at and seen as crazy and disrespectful. Women could not keep their own money, their husbands would be in charge of all finances, so getting the funding for suffrage programs was difficult. A lot of wealthy women who believed in the cause could not donate their money because their husbands simply would not allow
Societies do not accept the idea of women being successful in their life and feel that women are a threat. In consequence we can see clearly how Erin Brockovich addresses many ideas as reversal of gender roles, sexual objectification, and inequality. Erin is mistreated and misjudged throughout the movie by men, and by her society for falling into a certain category, which is being a divorced woman. She is thus given a certain role, and is looked down upon by people, because to them she has failed the most important task in a woman’s life, which is to get married and stay married. It is thus a movie about self-awareness, and female
Many women limit themselves by stay home and not taking on their own jobs, not driving because their husbands don’t want them to, and not following their aspirations because of what their husbands need. It’s almost implied that it has to be that way in many places. Especially in countries like India and countries in the middle east, it’s socially and physically extremely hard for women to to have a position of power similar to what men do. Even if women do get a good job, or a political position, most men don’t take them seriously and don’t respect them. The disrespect doesn’t just fall in India and the middle east, even American women are subjected to oppression that is now a part of the
“Some women accepted their status, but many rebelled against it, More and more women came to realize that, in order to be effective social reformers they would first need to acquire legal rights as women.” (The women’s rights) After the women had realized that they needed the legal rights, they tried everything to get those rights, but the men did not like the idea of their women or any women having rights to do anything. Especially to vote. They hated that they wanted their own legal rights and tried anything to convince them different. The idea of their lady have an opinion or any rights made them sick to their stomachs. Power with a women was not a good idea to them.
The Middle East has long struggled to show their women the rights and freedoms offered to most other women of the world. The struggle to gain equality amongst men has been unsuccessful as women today are still oppressed. They’re forced to cover the bodies and sometimes their faces, they can’t leave their homes without the company of a man, and they aren’t allowed to receive an education usually past middle school. These are just some of the things women are forced to deal with. Despite these restrictions seeming cruel and pointless, there are people who support this, including women.
Throughout history women have struggled to be recognized as equals. Women had been denied their rights and were considered slave to men. This discrimination, over the years, has been the cause of many uprisings. Now many have amended their beliefs and women have earned their well deserved respect but there are still those of conservative thoughts and practices. Women, to this day, face unequal job opportunities, dowry, and harassment etc.
Rhetorical Analysis of “Women’s Rights are Human Rights” For a long time, women have been treated badly by the society that they live in. They have been killed because of dowry, they have been suffering from rape, and they haven’t been treated equal as men. Women were not allowed to take important decisions of their life, and they didn’t have a right to speak up for themselves. Therefore, Hillary Clinton was supporting women’s right in her speech, “Women’s right are Human rights” by talking about how women do not have equal rights as men, and how they have to go through tough situations. She also mentions that women’s rights should be equal to Human rights.
