The feminist perspective gives modern society the best view of The Merchant of Venice it examines the strong female role in society. Even though the males treated the women with the utmost respect and tried to do everything right for them, the role males play in society is overpowered and it would cause feminism to come into play. Jessica and Portia play major roles in the lives of the men. They were supportive, reliable, and they resolved each and every problem because they were the backbone the men don 't have , they were limited to certain choices that they could make on their own. In this time period the women were often portrayed in films and books as vulnerable, weak and submissive and the men were portrayed as strong, brave and independent still to this day it is the same thing.
So whether it is this robustness , toughness or just some inner superhuman power , even science can’t fully understand our survival ability and it definitely cracks away at the stereotype that we are the weaker sex. While men are faster and stronger than women in competitive sports there are certain athletic endeavours where women have the edge. So while women are unlikely to break the 100m sprint record, when it comes to endurance events such as 160km ultra marathons and long distance swimming they are capable of giving their male rivals a run for their money. Women are statistically better drivers than men. They are also objectively better with money.
While men are lauded for being strong, intelligent heroes, it seems that the only achievement women can accomplish is being beautiful. For instance, Penelope is never described as anything more than beautiful or loyal, as if those two traits that define her. Eurymakhos’ arrogance highlights this well, when he tells Telemakhos that the suitors will “share his meat...as long as [Penelope] delays and maddens [them]. It is a long, long time [they] have been waiting in rivalry for this
Rady, who was in the rescue helicopter with Walden, says that “she gave her life for those men”. This shows that Rady admired her and he believed that she was a hero. This quote from Yellow Woman and the Beauty of the Spirit also contradicts what the other men in the film thought about Captain Walden, they did not admire her because she was a woman. After the rescue mission had failed, Monfriez argues with Walden about her course of action and what to do next, he believed that her ideas about what to do were wrong because she was a woman. “No job was a man 's job or a woman 's job; the most able person did the work” (Silko, 66), this quote sheds light on to the fact that Walden was the commanding officer for this mission because she was the most qualified person to do this job, and that she
Global Perspectives: - Although progression towards neutralization of gender inequality continues, some people have that stereotypical mindset that women can only be best in some fields. Jumping back into history, the title IX was the law that swapped the future of girls in sports in the U.S.A. The title claims, “No person in the US shall on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination.” Before this, there were very less women participating in sports at college level. But after the introduction of the title IX, it increased by 41%. Yet the number of female sportspersons continues to be way less than men.
Yet they are still treated as second class citizens. The media continuously emphasizes gender stereotypes and trivializes the seriousness of women’s sports. Women need to speak up and defend the right for girls to play. Although, men are physiologically bigger, faster, and stronger, female athletes deserve to be celebrated and respected for their talent and not just their bodies. Females deserve to be a recognized part of the athletic community.
Lord Henry even gave particular offense for female of the species, he said to Dorian Gray that ‘women are a decorative sex, no woman is a genius and women represent the triumph of matter over mind’. But, Dorian ignores Lord Henry’s advice and even invited him and Basil Hallward to watch Sibyl Vane’s act. This part was my favorite because Dorian Gray did not care what other people thought and truly believed himself that Sibyl Vane was a women that suites him and he was confident in his decision. The way of Oscar Wilde wrote this book was interesting because of good plot and twisted ending that made me hard to predict which is great. I loved it when this story touched about beauty and consequences if we did wrong, that was when Dorian Gray tried to kill the portrait, reflected as his soul made him killed himself.
Gender inequality is defined as the unequal treatment or perceptions of individuals wholly or partly due to their gender. Gender inequality within sports can refer to unequal pay rates between male and female athletes and the athletes being treated differently. As of today, many female athletes suffer from discrimination based on gender. There are companies choose to sponsor male teams over female teams, making the wage gap even larger between male and female athletes. The second major medium for gender inequality within sports is simply the biasly split attention society has.
To relieve this disadvantage, in fact, advantage points were given to applicants who completed military service but this was judged unconstitutional. After this judgment, still many men argued in favor of the advantage points system. But they were unsuccessful. Besides the military service, men complain about the positive discrimination because some of it discriminates against men rather than helping women. Some women misuse the positive discrimination to damage innocent men because weak women can be protected by the law more easily than strong men.
This is an example of man vs. society conflict because the options for what a woman could do are very restricted during this time. For Mabel, none of the suggestions made by her brothers really interests her, and she doesn’t give much attention to them. These suggestions, however, are her only options in her society and she realizes this. Another example
