Sexual assault was the lowest reported crime. Only 51.5 cases were reported in 2008. This could be because the majority of sexual abuse victims would feel too ashamed to tell anyone what had happened to them. The overall number recorded by the police is much lower than the BCS/CSEW because a lot of the crimes people report to the BCS about are not reported to the police unless thought to be very serious. People are also more likely to report the truth to the BCS than the police.
Walter fails to fulfill his dreams of becoming wealthy due to multiple aspects of the Great Migration, including racism, poverty, and a lack of education for African Americans. Poverty in the black communities is a significant factor in why Walter struggles and fails to achieve his dreams. Many black families struggled with poverty in Chicago: roughly thirty percent of African Americans fell below the poverty line during this time. In addition to that, eight percent of African Americans were unemployed, compared to only two percent of white folks (Bogira). In A Raisin in the Sun, Walter must work as a chauffeur and Ruth, his wife, as a maid.
Sexual harassment, unequal pay, and women lacking in leadership roles are contributing to an unwelcoming environment for women to thriving inside a technology company. All positions in this field are male-dominated, and female retention is low. Women are leaving at a 45 percent higher rate than their male coworkers (“Why Women Leave the Tech Industry”). Women are often excluded from meetings or asked to do things such as get coffee. Women are treated as sectaries rather than equals to their coworkers.
Obviously, men. According to Catalyst Research, female confront with the “glass ceiling” problem – which keep women at the bottom and bring barriers to reach to the top.Additionally, promotions are rarely given to female workers ( DONALD TOMASKOVIC-DEVEY, 2001). One of the recent case about gender segregation in the workplace has discuseed in the court. Eight women applied to the court in order to suit against Publix Super Markets. The female workers of one of the stores of this incorporation were denied to promition because the male supervisor told workers “women were not able of holding supervisory positions”.
Historically, for African Americans, the effects of slavery resulted in a “less instutionalized” (lecture) system of marriage, as women under slavery were not able to marry due to their restrictive conditions. After that, when African American women did begin to marry, many marriages were unsuccessful and troublesome due to conflicts with power. Because black women were used to being independent in living on their own and caring for their kids, the clash of power as well as roles between husband and wife restricted one or the other. The effects of slavery also influenced the economic life of African Americans. For men, stable, good paying jobs were and are scarce due to racial discrimination.
Many drug offenders are often forced into the drug business because of economic reasons, resulting from the increased difficulty of finding jobs after prison, due to the felony that is attached to their name. Employers are often discouraged from hiring a person that has committed a felony, because of the uncertainty in their behavior. A study done by the Urban Institute, found that only 45% of all Americans that had been to prison, had a job within a year of being released. It was even lower for drug offenders, as only 25% of all drug offenders in the United States were able to find a job once released (McVay). It’s hard enough finding a well paying job because of the current state of the economy in the United States.
African Americans were not given these rights; they were segregated, judged, and treated inhumanely. Society didn’t accept them, they were seen outcasts essentially everywhere in the U.S., and the government was afraid of them. Between 1800 and 1860, things were bleak and gloomy. Free blacks in the North faced limited freedoms and a variety of restrictions, politically, socially, educationally/economically, and religiously; however, the restrictions outweighed any possible freedoms they had. One of the many limited rights African Americans had was political, specifically suffrage and jury.
The first reason why the American dream cannot be achieved by all people is social inequality. Social inequality existed for many people in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s but it was primarily directed at two types of people, women and African Americans. From the dawn of time men have seen women as inferior and believed that they are only useful for reproduction and housekeeping purposes. In 1920 only about 8,346,896 women out of 76,212,168 total held jobs, that means only
Approximately half of rape kits are either lost or never tested to help find and prosecute the criminals. Furthermore, the few rapists that are ever found guilty get less sentencing than people who committed petty crimes. The worst of all is when loved ones do not even believe in the victim’s story. This was the case between Stella and Blanche when Stella said “I couldn’t believe her story and go on living with Stanley.”(1838; sc.11) Since Stella did not believe her, Blanche never got the justice that she deserved and in fact she was the one punished instead of Stanley. In “A Streetcar Named Desire” written by Tennessee Williams real relationships and problems are used
There is still clear discrimination going on in the workplace towards women today; two of these issues being the gender pay gap and sexual harassment. Women receive less pay than men based on their personal life, gender, age, race, and level of education. According to statistics women earn only 80% of what men earn, a pay gap of 20% (Miller). For instance, Hispanic/Latina women earn pay only 54% of what white men earn and African American women earn pay 63% of what white men earn. Second, when women have kids their employers assume they will work less so they pay them less.
Many people overlooked their major contributions because they were women. Black women oppression was very different from white women all because they were both black and a women. Overall women were invisible in this time in
