We see the feminist theory in the documentary when the managers or supervisors sexually abuse of their workers. They take the advantage of them being stronger and being in a higher position to manipulate their workers. So, they force them to have sex and afterward they laugh at them because they won’t listen to them and won’t believe them. Which in some of the cases they believe it and don’t report it at the moment and when they report it to the police and to the company it’s too hard to get evidence. Like in the case of one of the janitors, she reported what happened to her too
The reasoning behind the evil woman hypothesis was that woman have violated gender roles as well as laws, which is consistent with hostile sexism. Women may receive more assistant and help post prison compared to men since women typically are not as psychologically as stable compared to men. Men should also be offered this same options as the women are instead of being stereotyped into one category as everyone being the same as one another. People believe that more women are offered more assistance after being released from jail compared to men because men typically want to play the “tough man” role to prove that they do not need any help compared to women once being released from jail. Another factor to as why women receive more options compared to men is that women are usually more targeted by those who they may have gotten to know in jail or even prior to being in jail and also tend to be a victim rather than being a recurring
In the article "Dear Men It's You, Too" by Roxane Gay her main argument is that men are focusing on the critiques they get to justify ignoring the real issue behind why they are being criticized. For instance, "Skeptics are willing to perform all kinds of mental acrobatics to avoid facing the very stark realities of living in this world as a woman"(3). Santagati shares this similar close-minded view of the horrors women face surrounded by rape culture. He is ignorant of the issue of sexual harassment and the consequences women face for attempting to speak up. After finding out about the girl who was killed for confronting her accuser from Seales he is taken aback but not before responding with extreme protection suggestions for
While people of affluence may still commit crimes, they have access to resources the working class do not (expensive legal representation) and often commit different types of crime (white collar versus street crime.) When punished, they commonly receive less time incarcerated for the same crime committed. Differential treatment towards minorities is apparent in OITNB, with prison life shown from the perspective of many women from very different class and racial backgrounds. Racist behaviour and mentality is exhibited towards inmates, with harsher punishments towards those of colour. Faced with trouble in prison, Sophia is sent to SHU despite being the victim of hate-crimes because she is the minority in the situation (being both a racial minority and transgender.)
Through this section, Gross spoke about how laws existed to protect people, but black women were considered to be extremely sexual beings thus the law said that black women did not deserve to be protected. Gross used the experience of a woman named Hester and the using this experience in Gross’s writing made the talk about slavery much more effective. Furthermore, women were actually punishable by death if they choose to fight against their captors. Which further discussed the issues of being denied protection but fatally condemned by it at the same time. The last argument that Gross makes discussed how even though there were less African American living in a city compared to Caucasian or Latinos, but, female African Americans still took up 47.5% of prisoners.
Toni Morrison in Beloved emphasizes Paul D’s weakness by humiliating him at the hands of so-called weak and restless women, contrasting to the patriarchal tendencies. But the question is wouldn’t men be agonized just as much the women when they are raped? Be it physical, mental. Rather than taking a stand on assault on men, it’s better for us to know what happens to the oppressing gender when oppressed by the society that they created. The idea of male rape is tabooed.
The pain these people suffer are a result of their actions, they are not innocent. The true victims are the ones who suffer the most, and they did nothing to deserve these heinous results. So this really a light and easy trade off for what they have done. Other people believe that the minor crimes on the list like the ones I listed earlier should be taken off as a whole, the most common being sex with a minor Crimes like sex with a consenting minor and many others (previously mentioned) should still remain on If you are above the age of of 18 and having sex with minors you are still a criminal. In a lot of cases Adults having sex with these minors are taking advantage of the minors inability to tell real love from a fling.
Those differences are not easily dismissed… however those differences do not condone gender discrimination in society, and certainly not in the workplace.” (Malkin, 2005) Women mostly have unequal access to health services and education, face glass ceiling at work place. Social customs that force or encourage girls into early child bearing and teenage marriages have dangerous and direct consequences for their health. There are much high levels of brutality and violence against women almost in all nations around the world. This could be among their families where it is treated a normal custom. Violence, in the span of armed conflict, is used to humiliate the rivals and also to undermine resistance and
They are constantly pushed to prove their masculinity and the worst deviation from hegemonic masculinity is homosexuality. An attitude that rendered the life of my friend, Luigi, difficult since he was not willing to hide his sexual orientation and faced disapproval and discrimination including from his family. The relationship between masculinity and morality is complicated since masculinity requires auto-control and a high sense of morality, while men are perceived as violent and predatory. The concept of overly dominant violent heads of family is rejected today and violence against women is condemned. However, on one occasion I had the questionable pleasure of talking to a young man that told me with great pride about beating his supposedly unfaithful girlfriend and her supposed lover severely.
Functionalists believe that if a married man was not able to diversify his sexual life with the help pf prostitutes, for whom he does not have any moral responsibilities, he would seek for serious relationships with other women, which can create a serious threat to his marriage. Without this type of social institution, the number of sexual crimes, especially rape, would increase noticeably. There is another significant factor that forces men to turn to prostitutes, it is called “temporary sexual isolation” or in other words the state of divorce, widowhood, separation from the family due to the work circumstances etc. along with these normal, natural and
