What is equality? It is believed that no matter what race, sex, and religion everyone is equal. It is believed to be that way because there is no equality and never has been. It is the year 2015 and no one treats each other equal. There is fights, robberies, and murders because of race. People believe that they are being rejected or chosen last because of racism. Racism has become a massive problem since the 14th Amendment was ratified. If we all followed the 14th Amendment we would not have as many problems as we do now, but everyone chooses to believe they are all victims of the world. We should stand behind the phrase most parents tell their children, treat others how you want to be treated.
In the last month we have had cops killed because of one situation where someone believed a criminal was killed because of his color. The 14th Amendment states …show more content…
Women are objectified and men are viewed as laborers. This issue has played an important role in today's society as well as the others I mentioned above. Women are seen to stay at home, clean, and care for family. Men are seen to provide for his family and pay for all the bills. This is not equality either, men and women should be able to go on with their lives as they want. Neither should be judged for going against the stereotypes or society's wishes. Women should be able to work and pay for their bills and be single if they wish. Men can be stay at home parents or tend to their family or spouse if they wish. Equality is where everyone has their own free will and are able to go on with their lives without someone intruding and making them feel bad or bullying them for what they do. In some cases things can get physical or violent. I have physically seen where someone's house was damaged because that person did not like how those people were living their lives. Everyone should be able to live in peace and not worry about being hurt for someone else's
Equality is so important because it makes people of all cultures and races comfortable. Race should not be a reason why a person is judged differently. Acceptance is a major part to this, respect yourself, ideas, and beliefs, but also everyone else. Others have to tolerated by everyone. The book tells everyone is equal by saying “No matter what you do you will always stay the same” (Rand 18).
The meaning of equality can be completely different to certain people. A particular environment and perspective can impel someone to have a definition of equality that can differ greatly from the standard dictionary definition. In the case of Jefferson and the men who revised the Declaration of Independence, when they said, ¨All men are created equal¨ their views on equality of all men excluded: slaves, women, and Native Americans. When Jefferson wrote that infamous quote, it is safe to assume that by all men, he meant all white men. Freedom and equality is relative to the specific individual in question; our country has made great strides for complete freedom and equality, but here still is room for improvement.
Equality is important because it gives everyone equal rights and opportunities. Diana Pham said that here daughters graduating from college would not be possible without out country’s belief in equality (Doc A). Now, everyone is treated fairly and treated with respect no matter what your gender, race, religion, or cultural background is. With equality, everyone is able to reach their full potential.
Equality insures that individuals have the same opportunities and not discriminating them for their: race, sexuality, culture or beliefs. Example: if a care worker declines one of the service user the right to join in group activities because of their race or disability. This would be known as failed to apply equality in their work.
Racism is a continuing battle for people of color because they are considered the “inferior” race by many. The reason for this is because America was built on white slave owners. People of color were pretty much always considered the “inferior” race because white people though they were entitled to owning everything, including people. But some don’t see people as being inferior because of their race. Some don’t “see” race at all; to them, they are just people.
This idea has been diffused over centuries, but people now are trying to impede gender disparity and efface it. To conclude, we find ourselves on a dilemma. On one side we have machism and men thinking they are better than women and vice versa. On the other, we have people who are just looking for gender equality.
Anthem is a book that makes oneself contemplate the future and what evils are bestowed upon it. In this novel, the reader is caught in the life of Equality. Equality’s life is placed in the future, where the feared reality of communism has conquered all but the souls of few weary men. Equality is one of those few men who have a light that is invulnerable to a ravaging wind. Equality’s time captive before his extraordinary escape has taken a toll on his body and mind and now at the end of his journey forces him to question whether the decisions he’s made are full of sin or teeming with righteousness.
Equality is something people want till people actually have it. Equality often limits a person’s abilities and disables to do something for themselves or inspire themselves. Equality's, the main character in the book Anthem, the primary motivation is proving that he is smart enough to become a scholar. Equality has a right to be motivated in this way since he believes that he can help the society so he is giving into the collectivism. I think that if everyone was motivated in this way, there would be a more progressive society where people sought to improve themselves and society at the same time.
Citizens of Equality's society live in a dehumanized state. When children are born they go straight to the house of the infants, they never get to see or meet their parents and the parents never know them. Kids never get the support a family would give you emotionally and physically. Plus parents get matched with random people to have a kid with and Equality describes it as a messy and shameful. Another way they are dehumanized is making them wear the same white robes as everyone else all the time.
Women face getting treated differently, lower paying positions, the opinions of men, and the idea that because they are women they are not capable of the same kind of work men are capable of. The more people that support the different movements for women’s rights the better chance of this issue becoming more well known. Although some may know the struggle women go through to be compared as equally to men, there is still room for more to learn about this issue. Just because women were brought on earth to make more lives does not mean they are weaker and should have to go through this everyday of their
It is important for teachers to create an environment that promotes fairness in order for students to succeed. Equality and equity are both needed to do this. Equality in a class means every student has the same opportunity to succeed. Making accommodations for students is called equity. This is needed in a class to ensure an equal opportunity to succeed is possible for every student.
Gender Equality is the only way forward. What is gender equality? Gender equality is achieved when all genders enjoy the same rights and opportunities across all sectors of society, including economic participation and decision-making, and when the different behaviors, aspirations and needs of women and men are equally valued and favored.
