In the movie “Fire Eyes,” Soraya Mire creates a personal connection with the audience by choosing to showcase bloody, painful responses rather than solely focusing on multiple retellings of women who experienced circumcision. The few personal stories from the women who experienced circumcision offer powerful additions to the horrifying nature of genital mutilation and how the poorly done operation forever ruins the women’s hygiene and health. The result of Soraya Mire’s choice to only showcase the graphic parts of female circumcision takes away the cultural meaning and importance of the practice. Soraya Mire’s strong opinion on female circumcision relates closely with the Western approach to viewing external cultures and disagreeing with practices that
Our data for the water treatment group showed no change in glucose (remained negative), little to no change in the protein, pH was around 6.5 after the ninety minutes and experience little change, while the specific gravity for each subject varied, some decreased, and others increased; the average was 1.000. For our glucose treatment group, there was no change in glucose (negative), no change in the protein, the average pH after the ninety minutes was around 6.9- each subject experience an increase or stayed the same, and lastly, the specific gravity was relatively constant around 1.010. For the last treatment group: salt there was no change in glucose (remained negative), no chance in protein, average pH after the ninety minutes was 7, and specific gravity was around 1.005. The pH changed for the salt groups which we expected to become more acidic and we expected the water group to be a more neutral; while there was no change in pH for the glucose and protein groups. The specific gravity of the salt group increased as expected, the water group experienced various results and their results could have been affected by how hydrated they were before they performed the experiment.
One women said she feared telling her husband about her coerced sterilization because she thought her husband would equate her to a prostitute and throw her out on the street. (No Más Bebés). Although including race as a factor birth control rights was essential to preventing continued forced sterilization, the Chicano movement wanted nothing to deal with the feminist movement because they saw birth control as a tool to destroy families. Chicanas, left unaccounted for in both movements, continued to be victims of
I also feel Dorothy Smith theory on women is very subjective. She wrote her book base on her experience. It’s over generalize. There are women today who goes against all the values and norms that man place on her.. For example: heavily tattooed women. Tattoo is consider very masculinity and something women should not have in her body.
A woman was referred to as a whore if she initiated sex, a prude for refusing it, a dangerous monster that could not be in control in literature and as a slut for being a prostitute. A prostitute was additionally excluded from society, and had to dress differently so that it would be easy to differentiate between a whore and “good girl”. The thoughts and beliefs of the origin cultures on subordinating women were cruel and insensitive. A woman should be granted the freedom to choose her life and how she wants to live it, rather than be deprived from it and given standards to live up to. Although these ideas may not continue to shape our society as dramatically as they use to, they are still present.
Margaret Sanger was an American birth control activist during the progressive era. She aided in legalizing birth control. Although she was a strong leader for women’s rights, many claimed she was racist and a supporter of abortion and eugenics. Despite these allegations, Sanger’s negative views of the disabled, fueled her inspiration to promote birth control, not that she wanted to exterminate the black race or that she didn’t value human life.. “Anti-choicers wield misattributed and often outright false quotes about Sanger as weapons to shame Black women” (Gandy 1). Anti-choice believers spread false information about Sanger as a way to make her and her ideals, goals, and achievements look bad.
Why Abortion Should Be Illegal Abortion has been a popular debate in the United States, especially after the Supreme Court ruling in 1973 stating a woman has the right to an abortion. In my opinion, abortion is wrong and very unethical. There are some specific instances where abortion may be acceptable, but for the most part, abortion is an evil act. Abortion should be illegal because it is the killing of an innocent human, even if he or she has not been born yet. In fact, it is proven that babies can feel pain during an abortion.
They believe that the Planned Parenthood clinic is immoral and has even been called a “scandal-plagued organization” by Senator Joni Ernst (R-IA), because of their “lack of compassion towards women and unborn children.” Congress claims that there will be no reduction to the funding of women’s health, only that it will go to a clinic that does not provide abortion services. The problem with this new plan is that many low-income women rely on Planned Parenthood for most of their healthcare services, and defunding the clinic would leave these women with no service. Although Republican congressmen claim that there are 9,000 other clinics around the country that provide women’s healthcare without providing abortions, they are still diminishing the amount of services that women have around the country. Not to mention that abortion is a basic and essential health need for women all around the world. Lawmakers are trying to regulate women’s bodies, and in turn, giving dead bodies more rights to their body than to pregnant women.
Female circumcision, or female genital mutilation (FGM), is a form of modification to the female sexual anatomy. There are many forms, some much more extensive in nature than others. Nearly all include an excision of the clitoris. The clitoris is one of the primary erogenous zones associated with a women 's enjoyment of oral and penetrative intercourse. More extreme examples may additionally include the removal of all external genitalia, as well as infibulation, or the act of stitching the vaginal opening shut aside from a tiny hole for urine and menstrual blood to pass.
The amount of physical activity recommended to get mental health benefits is the same of that of obtaining academic benefits, which is 30-60 minutes per day. Another study at the U.S. National Institute of Health had participants do yoga every day for eight weeks, and take brain scans before and after. These scans showed that a part of the brain called the amygdala, which controls fear, anxiety and stress, had shrunk after the 8 weeks of yoga practice. Physical activity/exercise helps increase the chemical norepinephine which helps relieve stress. Exercise also helps increase endorphins in the brain which makes people feel happier and less
If the acidity or alkalinity levels were high scientists would have to find a way to neutralize the acid and alkaline. We also did not find a high level of phosphates and nitrates in the water. My group also did a dissolved oxygen test on the water. The velocity of the surface water of the creek is at a normal rate. The Conodoguinet Creek appears to be healthy right now.
The organization was originally created during a time both birth control and abortion were illegal, so its presence was villainized from the get go. The group was continuously shut down, but since its conception illegal and backroom abortion rates dropped. As a result of women having means to prevent and ultimately end unwanted or dangerous pregnancies they abandoned, dangerous alternatives that were common practice in such situations. Planned Parenthood offered women a sense of control over their own bodies, something they had never experienced before and thus saved many of their lives. Often woman without the means or money to have legal abortions would go to dangerous lengths to rid themselves of the fetus, a majority of these procedures they underwent were life threatening.
In fact, Dabul and Russo contend that much of the stress experienced by women who get abortions may stem not from the procedure itself but from the simple fact that the pregnancy is unwanted.” Now that you know most women are less likely to have serious psychological trauma to getting an abortion. And the trauma that they do face does not stem from having an abortion but is rooted down deeper and is past the stage of
Yet, there are many resources that report that adoption is not a popular choice amongst women with the option of abortion or adoption. An article from Adoption Statistics, for example, stated that 2% of unmarried women decided to place their children in adoption. More specifically, an even smaller percentage of black unmarried women and white unmarried women chose adoption over abortion. While this pro-life argument has good intentions, it does not apply to every woman’s
Abortion rights have lessened the health risk of a black market abortions for women. Women who are made pregnant after being raped and are made to keep the child, face challenging consequences and difficulties. Mary Meehan, author of “Rape & Abortion: A Double Injustice” says that in some cases it is impossible to for some women to avoid another injustice when a child is conceived out of rape. The article “Rape & Abortion: A Double Injustice” states, “It is unjust that a woman must carry to term a child conceived through rape” (Meehan 31). A woman should not be forced to carry a baby if she has been raped.
