In the renaissance period, the status and the presentation of women was oppressive and restrictive. Women were allowed to enjoy very few economic and political rights and acted submissively in front of their fathers and husbands. They were forced to remain in the domestic part of their society. Their roles as daughters, mothers and wives were considered significant in the renaissance age. Their reproductive capabilities was extremely important for inheritances and for maintaining the family line.
Discipline was very important, so there was no time for child games. To teach the girls self-control, the girls had to sit perfectly still without speaking. When a girl left school, it was usually to be married or, if she chose, she stayed to become a priestess. The boys had two types of schools, which were divided between the normal citizen, including slaves, and the wealthy or the noble. However, both schools served the same purpose which was to prepare the young boys to serve the gods as well as go to war.
Cormac McCarthy’s novel, Suttree, demonstrates the prejudice deeply ingrained within society, as well as the way it largely affects its readers. The misogynistic attitude is certainly not a new one. Women have been oppressed and viewed as less than men, in personal accounts and in narratives, for a long time. In the minds of the men in this novel, women are seen as merely an addition to men or an afterthought, and certainly not able to hold the value of a whole person on their own. The only real relationships with women the reader observes are Cornelius Suttree’s romance with Wanda, and then with Joyce.
The slavery issue in the West and the gender inequality in the East both brought unimaginable damage for not only the groups of people who were mistreated, but also the society which is supposed to be peaceful, fair and justice. In the modern century, for most countries around world it seemed that gender inequality is cruel and unreasonable, but countries in mid-Asia are exceptions. According to the report from The Global Gender Gap in 2015, Yemen and Pakistan ranked bottom of the list of gender gap which means the distances in economic and politic between men and women in those two areas was the furthest (International Rankings). Similar levels appear on the other mid-Asian countries too. The world citizens held different viewpoints.
The role they were groom to do at a very young age was to be the perfect wife and mother, learning proper manners and how to be submissive and meek. The roles that the women in the 21st century were playing are those of what morals their parents place in them, don’t let a man control you, you are your own woman and so on. The differences are that the women of yesterday were taught that because they are women they don’t do what men do and that they are the weaker sex even though women give birth, clean the house and take care of everyone. The women of today can do whatever they want if they put their mind to it because we have learned that men and women are the equal, that a woman can be a CEO and/or work in a male dominated trade skill that requires manual labor, long hours, and getting dirty. Thanks to all the women suffrages who fought for our right to do whatever we want; we can vote, sue, divorce, adopted, have abortions, and even drive
African Americans should not have to be scared to go outside any day thinking they might not make it home. African Americans feel targeted in today’s society because so many innocent African Americans are being incarcerated, shot, and killed. Since 2001, it is 6.1 times likelier to be incarcerated as a black man than a white man. This is all because of skin color.

We judge these people and never take the time to understand where this hatred for this set of people came from. Racism doesn't just grow overnight because some black kid decided that it would be a good idea to push you out of his way on the way to school, its deeper than that, and the same can go for all psychological issues that we face as a people today. We don't just one day decide oh i'm
