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
“One early state case, Barefield v. Leach (1974), demonstrated that the opportunities and programs for female inmates were clearly inferior to those for male inmates” (Schmalleger & Smykia, 2015, p. 377). Rights were important because people wanted to be treated fairly and women wanted to be offered the same opportunities as men. In this chapter I have learned about Legal
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.)
Her being paid less is telling us that unjust in Hollywood against women is a reality. Claim #2: less films portraying female protagonist. Context: There are a lot of films that portray male protagonist but very less when it comes to women. Evidence: In an article, “Women in Hollywood” argues that:
As indicated by Bartollas and Siegel, there is evidence which lends to the widely perceived view by many that a correlation exists between an individual’s social class and the type of justice and consequently the sentence an individual receives. As lower socio-economic offenders are less likely to afford quality legal representation, often enduring to suffer the consequences of the overworked public defender and be compelled into accepting a plea or are unable to secure to make bail, thus, as Bartollas states, “lower-class offenders have typically expected to receive longer prison sentences than higher class defendants” (2013). While justice should be blind to the gender of the offender, Bartollas states “women receive more favorable outcomes
Another important idea in the Victorian era is the slow recognition of sexual repression and the start of liberation that opened up better opportunity for women to express themselves. Back then, women were seen as the weaker, more innocent sex who had little or no sexual desires. It was difficult for women to gain social status as equal to men. This character is portrayed by the
3.2 Intersectionality and violence against women Monk (2011, pp. 113-114) observed that intersectionality has an ambiguity and somewhat confusing but it offers comprehensive tools for violence against women. Violence against women can specifically be analysed with intersectionality in the same context it actually executed (Monk, 2011, p. 106). In Pakistan degree of violence against women is different and depends on classes and rural/urban areas because rural areas has strong patriarchal structures than urban areas and women of upper and middle class has more control over their lives because of their efforts in education and employment and thus have lower percentage of violence (Ballantine, et al., 2017, pp. 2-5).
He relates it to stress because stress results in less achievement, so women with negative body image would stress themselves to look better and would concentrate on their academic performance. This also shows that as women who pursue their higher education are not bothered about the body image issues and are satisfied with their looks and body type and do not try to fit into the societal definition of the ideal women. They are most likely to have a very position body image (Miles, 2009) Alasker and Flammer in their book on the adolescent experiences among the American and Europeans say that a lot of changes come in an adolescent’s body during the age of poverty and the change brings along a lot of consciousness. The way a child perceives the change at that times forms their self-esteem and the way they look at their bodies. They go through the process of accepting change and building a whole new self which is very crucial in the development of the Body Image.
It reduces potential competition from men who are the ‘superior’ sex in other markets and from surrounding areas. 2. It downplays the male contributions in the society. This Demonstrates that the feminine gender have the upper hand in the community. With this society, as any other, there are subgroups of people who cleave to different beliefs, and have conflicting values and goals to others.
