Society is heavily reliant on many of the people who would be viewed as unintelligent and would begin to feel dismissed and oppressed by society, and would band together to incite change for the betterment of their lives and society as a whole. The more clear division among people that is introduced into a society, the more difficult it is to keep it stable. That is why it is essential to maintain a variety of definitions of intelligence circulating in the world otherwise many unique perspectives and
When someone hears the word stereotyping, people might think it only refers to the racial stereotype often found between white and black people. However, stereotyping is much deeper than a human color. Stereotyping is found between nation cultural, religion, age, race, and gender. People have been judgmental against other groups of people without knowing them it is all based on what the learn I school or what they hear from their family or friends or what they see on media which most of is not true we need to understand the true meaning behind stereotyping we need to stop it since stereotyping has become a real problem in our society today and much of our world's history is based upon such judgmental and hatred between people. Mass media play
Another reason people use stereotypes and misconceptions are to make one feel better about themselves by putting others down. All over the world there is thousands of stereotypes used everyday. Everyday someone is being judged by others using stereotypes and misconceptions. People that didn’t go to college hear these incorrect views that they are uneducated and are not successful in life from people who don’t even know them when the fact is they can have just as much success as one who received a degree. Misconceptions and stereotypes are quite similar as far as the definition of the two.
Despite the fact that lookism is widespread nowadays and people tend to appear as physically glamorous as possible through attaining plastic surgeries or excessive amount of makeup, it has negative causes and must be terminated, Judging people according to their physical appearance causes several psychological problems as well as it creates a gap in society, and finally results in cultural dilemma.

Since the beginning, humans have been held to certain standards regarding morality our rights as humans. History shows us leaders and rulers who, in their reign of power, have misused their power and attacked human’s rights to agency and liberty. By looking at all the wars, violence, criminals, and acts of immorality that humans have accomplished, many assume that humans are not good at fighting for the rights of others. However, in every war, and every act of violence, there is an opposing force. There will always be someone fighting for the good of others, whether it be one person or a whole army, which comes to show that humans are essentially good at fighting for the rights of others.
Throughout history, and this chapter provided several examples is that there are issues with power, issues with rule making, and issues with rule breaking. Individuals constantly and still constantly break the rules for what they believe in. Individuals constantly break the rules for a change, a change for the better. In my belief, I think the issue that is being addressed in this chapter is how there is power struggle within the society. The power the government has, the power the rich has, the potential power the people has individual or as a whole all have conflict against each other instead of coming together.
The theory known as the ‘glass ceiling’ is defined as “artificial barriers” based on attitudinal or organisational bias that prevent qualified individuals from advancing to positions of higher power which offers; Higher pay checks, more power and more authority. It has been known that women experience significant levels of frustration at every stage due to the barriers of progression even though the promotional roles are within sight and ability. Flanders suggests the barrier of the glass ceiling exists and is exerted upon women is because of societies attitude and prejudice towards women. Also the preconceived idea that managerial positions in a workplace are all male
The definition of discrimination is observing people’s or a groups’ dissimilarities, holding main differences against these people or groups and making them exposed to judge and sexism, racism and other forms of discrimination in cultures can’t be eliminated without changing the culture itself.Like Charlotte Bunch 's quote "Sexual, racial, gender violance and other forms of dicrimination in culture can not be eliminated without changing culture." As I stated in its description, discrimination is the experience of bias which people can’t change and can’t choose. In our lives, women are unfortunately all being exposed to discrimination due to their gender. Simply being a man or a woman is changing the way that how a person is being treated by society and sadly, most of the time, the difference is extreme. There is only one question at this point that we are not able to answer yet: Why does sexual discrimination exist?
Breaking Stereotypes: The Millennials Perception towards Gender Roles” Abstract Gender stereotypes are simplistic generalizations about the gender attributes, differences, and roles of individuals and/or groups. Stereotypes can be positive or negative, but they rarely communicate accurate information about others. Gender stereotyping can limit the development of the natural talents and abilities of girls and boys, women and men, as well as their educational and professional experiences and life opportunities in general. Stereotypes about women both result from, and are the cause of, deeply engrained attitudes, values, norms and prejudices against women. They are used to justify and maintain the historical relations of power
The research findings have been that there are quite dramatic differences in the ways men and women talk, which are sometimes the opposite of what you might expect. For example, the evidence strongly suggests that men on the whole talk far more than women, in contradiction of the stereotype. This is an important finding because it shows ideology at work. It is so much a part of our ‘common sense’ that women talk more than men, that we tend to assume it’s true despite plentiful evidence around us to the contrary. The fact that we tend to believe that women talk too much, when research shows men on average talk more than women, also indicates how women, and women’s activities, have tended to be undervalued.
