She shows how strength comes in in all different manners. Power can come from a person 's physical features, through good deeds, or money. Janie 's hair is an example of a woman 's power, and Hurston uses Janie 's hair as a way to introduce the idea that strength causes conflict in the world. Hurston used this conflict throughout the book warn society about how it could be running itself off the rails, and by giving an early warning Hurston shows that she believes that society will be able to correct its own course by becoming more accepting. Zora Neale Hurston uses a woman 's suffering as well as black inequality to warn the world about their inherent fate.
At one point during this discussion she talks about self-reliance, stating, “…because the position I early was enabled to take was one of self-reliance. And were all women as sure of their wants as I was, the result would be the same. The difficulty is to get them to the point where they shall naturally develop self-respect…” (754). She talks about how hard it was to develop this kind of independent mind set. For women who did not grow up with Fuller’s advantages, it was a very daunting task.
Since the establishment of the roles of society, women have been entitled to feminine roles that focus on family and nurturing. This roles allows for the subordination of women in the workplace since it makes distinctions between ideological constraints between genders. This opens up for the construction of gendered processes, that focus on the placement of roles that only “women” are allowed to acquire because of their practices. The author makes the example of how the managers contribute to gender gap and placement of roles that do not allow for the advancement of women in an organization. Acker argued, “…the production of gender divisions.
Dana Seitler argued that “it is not a monster, but often a mother who negotiates, threatens, and ultimately restores a sense of cultural survival and national futurity to the social world” (Seitler 63). By this she means that in spite of women being treated differently than what was considered the male “norm,” women were ultimately in charge of the shift in power that was soon to come forth. Also, the way women were treated served as an escape for feministic views and “exciting proof of the on-going fight for liberation” (Seitler 63). As time went by, the structure of society began to shift with women fighting for their rights, as well as rights to be able to work a job. As the world began to be more industrialized, with women participating
Pollitt states, “Difference feminists want to give women credit for these good behaviors by raising them from the level of instinct or passivity- the Camille Paglia vision of femininity- to the level of moral choice and principled decision” (407). Pollitt maybe thinks that logically women only follow difference feminism because it makes them feel good, this shouldn’t be the case. Pollitt may be suggesting that the ideas of difference feminism can be countered by looking at the world. Difference feminists claim that the lives of men and women are distinct. Pollitt logically claims that, “The ultimate paradox of difference feminism is that it has come to the fore at a moment when the lives of the sexes are becoming less distinct than they ever have been in the West” (411).
It is stated that Murray was one of the first women who argued “women’s capacity to reason.” Murray argued for the same men and women educational facilities, inaugurating change within the socialization. Murray also joined reformations with other women against the reconstruction of gender equality. Galewski’s close reading of Murray’s text reveals two types of irony used within, romantic and dialectical. The ironies coordinate within each other in the text which makes the argument more persuasive. However, Murray’s argument successfully conveys women’s mental potential.
By being aware of their rights women will be able to enshrine themselves from harassment or conflicts. Kaur alleges that the companies which deal with gender diversity in society should include some education and training programs related to gender equality in order to make women be aware of their rights. It is hard not to comply with her that women are less confident and unskilled for senior positions, therefore, for eliminating this problem they should develop their leadership skills, and be aware of their rights in order to be successful in their
The speech was delivered as a political movement and it specifically addressed the women of that time period. The context of the text was to support women’s rights by encouraging women to better themselves as wives by valuing intelligence and culture over beauty. The audience that this speech is targeted towards is women. She specifies women as the audience by tailoring her speech towards women and appealing to their emotions, situations, and circumstances. For example, she says, “I could not believe that God gad created so many homely women, and suffered all to lose their beauty in the very maturity of their powers, and yet made it our duty
Schlafly argued that women’s goal was ‘to love and be loved’ or to have a family and children. She backed her argument up with how women can achieve this goal quicker than men even who instead ’search 30 to 40 years for accomplishment in their profession.’ NOW wanted women in professions and wanted them have a sense of fulfillment from it. They wanted to see girls interested in their abilities and education and women entering colleges and the professional field. They wanted to see women their for work and skills and not simply as the ‘token appointment’ in various unnecessary positions for show. Women being in the workforce were not a priority for Schlafly.
The way society views women and the way a woman represents herself. In “Enlightened Sexism” author Susan Douglas restates a comment cited in her paper, “While enlightened sexism seems to support women’s equality, it is dedicated to the undoing of feminism.” (Douglas 2010, P. 285) Society seems to continuously devise a system to separate
