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.
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. For men, school was very important in order to perform sacrifices. The priests had to be well educated in mathematics, astronomy, glyph reading and writing, religious poetry, music
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.
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. Some believed gender inequality benefits people and some protests it, so what exactly is correct way to value and evaluate gender inequality?
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 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. Black Lives Matter (BLM) was a group created to raise awareness for the heinous acts the have presented itself to the black community
Deenies mother is always saying deenie needs to be a model when she hasn’t even asked deenie what she wants she is trying to live the life she wanted through her children like her other daugter (Deenies sister) helen who is "the brains of the family" she is always telling helen she needs to study because shes the brains but deenie never has to study because she the face of the family which is very unfair to not only helen but also deenie.

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
In all over the world, in every country women had limited rights and works for the men. In India devdasi system, sati system and baal vivah system was very unpleasant to the women’s rights. In America there was no suffrage for the women and in Europe also women were in very worse condition. They were treated as a slave of men. In history Women’s rights is the fight for the idea that women should have equal rights with men.
Coates saw the system and not the individual as responsible. Ta-Nehesi Coates ability to make the reader feel these events and emotions makes a psychological impact on many as it did the author himself. Living through the words of the author and feeling the experience. All these events make the reader question, what kind of country is America that it can make a reasonable person like me live in perpetual fear for my life, and for a better future alongside the thought whether that future can be obtained. Between the author and reader’s self-examination and critical interrogation of the world, concerns with questions as much as the answers do as
Another issue that was mentioned in your speech was about police brutality. African Americans fear the knowledge that police brutality towards other African American victims is happening around them. Like you said, “We can never be satisfied as long as the Negro is the victim of the unspeakable horrors of police brutality.” Police brutality has gotten milder but it 's still out there and to be honest, you would like how the world turned out.
However there is no doubt that there are still problems associated with it. It never explicitly addresses the rights of all the people including slaves, or of women. It’s problematic that the constitution is so highly regarded and followed even when these groups of people are left out, due to the fact that it divides the society by race and sex, and if you were apart of the persecution, it was because you were seen to be inferior, and should not have the same rights of white men. All throughout history we have become keenly familiar with some of the costs of this problem such as how african americans have been persecuted for generations even after the end of slavery. Women weren’t treated any better when you look at how they couldn’t vote until the 1930’s.
Black Lives do Matter Unless you live under a rock, you have atleast heard of black lives matter and understand what this movement mean as a whole. In case you don 't know or understand, Black Lives Matter is a Civil Rights movement against police brutality, wrongful killing of blacks , and being subjective to racism and white supremacist on a daily basis. Some people believe that this movement is racist ,Anti-American, and not a civil rights movement , they believe this just a bunch of thugs that are anti-police ,anti-American and that we are just “pulling the race card” to get what we want in America and to get head in life. Some people also try to change Black Lives Matter to “All Lives Matter” because they do not fully understand the meaning
