In addition, his dissatisfying slurs about Nurse Ratched’s body made him look like a terrible human being. Next, when McMurphy slammed his hand twice through the Nurses’ Stations glass he made a dangerous situation that should and was reprehensible. Lastly, with McMurphy’s indiscretions, Nurse Ratched had to make the safe decision by turning the other patient's opinions against McMurphy’s trip. The ultimate message was to portray that sometimes with the mentally ill there are right times when harsh, strict, and orderly rules enforced by someone who is strong is a good
Good thing my lips stitched together or I’d throw up.” (pg. 45-46). The cause of Melinda’s dreary mood obviously comes from IT’s abuse. Andy Evans constantly harassing Melinda in the hallways reminds her of the horrid rape and keeps the image in her mind. This is why Melinda cannot wake up from her nightmare and is emotionally unstable.
The Handmaid’s Tale – Response Assignment “We two legged wombs, That’s all: scared vessels, ambulatory chalices” (Atwood 171). In Margret Atwood’s Handmaid’s Tale, the repression of women is the main subject of satire. Atwood satirizes this subject effectively by using irony, and setting the story in a dystopian world. Firstly, Atwood successfully satirizes the repression of women because she effectively uses a dystopian world to convey her message. Right from the get go, we quickly learn that there is a hierarchy in the Gileadean society.
This is in addition to the societal expenses related to delivering and maintain health care, justice-related services to people who are victimized including the costs related to the criminal justice response to the accused (Johnson and Dawson 2011). In 2009, 76% of women who experienced violence disclosed only to family, friends and their neighbours (Impact of violence against women, 2015). The consequences of violence against women in can be far-reaching in general. The experiences of violence indirectly have the chances of reminding others in the society of the potential risk of being victimized also which in return increases the fear level within the society (Johnson and Dawson 2011). In particular, children are more likely to witness spousal violence.
From the start of the play Mary felt mistreated by her teachers. When she voiced her displeasure, she was often confronted with questions and ended up getting punished. Mary would often exaggerate her sorrows and faked illnesses to get out of punishments. Fearing that she would have to return to school, Mary persuaded her grandmother to let her stay by suggesting Karen and Martha are lesbians. Mary’s biggest challenge was that she needed liability from other students saying that they witnessed their teachers being sexually involved with one another.
Nice June thought she got rid of mean June until she saw her standing in a house on the way to her new house. Nice June slouched down in her seat, hoping mean June wouldn’t see her but she did! This story shows that being bullied affects nice June’s life in many ways. One reason that June’s life gets affected is by being bullied physically. In paragraph 35, mean June is hurting nice June in the locker room.
We are strength. We are determination. We have successfully explored today the methods of discrimination that our school and its staff members use against us female students. The learning environment we are surrounded by hs not proven itself successful and takes its toll on us. The teachers are also taking part in this silent crusade launched against us.
Aiken (2002) study shows that the nursing shortage has negatively affected communication, nurse patient relationships and timeliness of care and overall competence of nurse’s professional identity. For example, the Francis report in 2013 at the mid Staffordshire foundation trust investigation had bad indication on nurses, healthcare and all the staff in connection to the negative and culture that caused harm to patient. In order to resolve this issue the NHS has to reflect on the nurses’ professional identity, encourage nurses, provide support, and reorganise the work environment (Buerhaus, 2007). A research study conducted by Johnson and Johnson (2012), found that nurses fear that talking about their technical skills and medical knowledge somehow risks their reputation for caring and compassion. In order to protect nursing professional identity, they emphasised that nurses could leverage to have a greater voice in their professional identity and let compassion be the fundamental care to be delivered to patients.
A large topic in D. Spence’s (2010) review is that women are being over-diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome as a method of further oppressing women in the medical field. That is to say, D. Spence (2010) views the over-diagnosis “has made women anxious, paranoid, and unhappy and has undermined their sexuality” (p. 341). Women who have been diagnosed with Polycystic ovarian syndrome often feel like it is used as an excuse to ignore other problems further down the line. Hormone imbalances, weight problems, and depression are often all blamed on Polycystic ovarian syndrome once a woman has been diagnosed, regardless of whether it is the cause or not. It is in this way that the sexist medical practices perceived in modern practices oppress women, demeaning them and making their problems seem lesser than they are.
However, the punishment innocent individuals experience catalyzes various forms of violence. In The Handmaid’s Tale violence done by the handmaids, especially Moira, is subtle and secretive, targeting institutions. Even though, Moira’s first escape is unsuccessful, upon her return she perpetrates a more violent attempt in order to achieve her goal. Moira fakes an emergency in the washroom and when she calls aunt Lydia for an examination, Lydia “felt something hard and sharp and possibly a metallic jab into her ribs from behind” (Atwood 130). Through the agony Moira endured, it causes rebellious behavior and thus, she devises a violent plot against the rules of the government.
