(http://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu) Job environment, the way women are treated on the job, internal support for career development and other advancements are some problems that has affected female employees that work in Law enforcement. (http://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu) Approximately 1.4% of women have administrative positions in law enforcement. There are more men that are sworn officers than women in Law enforcement. Statistics state that female police officers not to involve themselves in violence when they encounter issues with citizens. It has also been said that female officers are more prepared than male officers to handle disputes and people are less likely to be arrested once female police officers handle it.
Females prisoners seem less committed to the inmate code . This is very serious in male prisoners as you break one code it could cost you your life . These is mainly because women serve shorter sentences then men , so women society is more fluid as new members join and other leave . The women and men culture is different in several ways . First , Over half of male inmates but only a third prisoners are serving time for violent offenses.
The people in the criminal justice system such as police, prosecutors, and judges are more sympathetic towards the female criminal. Although they are more lenient to the females, females still endure prejudice and difficulties in the criminal justice system. Female’s offenders commit numerous various types of crime in society but frequently recognize as less of a trouble. The three major crimes that the females commonly perpetrate and have a high rate of incarcerated are violent, property, and drug crimes. The incarceration percentage of the violent crimes is at 37.1 percent.
Most of the time, females are disregarded for being able to be a sexual predator just for the fact that they are women. Females are not seen as powerful enough to be able to commit sexual offense. They are seen as It is also assumed by society that if a female commits a sex crime that it was wanted by the victim because older females are seen as someone to try and seduce. Also, males are easily able to be tried for sexual assault crimes because of how the law explains sexual assault. These laws can be tricky to apply to females because of the fact that females cannot “penetrate” someone else
Some factors often prevent women from having the same health care resources as men. Statistics show that women are more likely than men to develop a variety of diseases and disorders. This includes mental health problems, all of which are very expensive to treat such as anxiety, depression, and eating disorders. Discrimination against women can have a negative effect on their health. Men’s mental disorder and disease rates are lower, and they face less violence and discrimination when compared to women.
This discrimination against sex is called sexist and America itself has embodied the definition of sexism through the unrealistic idea of women on TV, the pay gap, and the fact that there are very few women involved with politics. There is no voice for women being heard in these aspects and there must be a voice for women. As being a feminist, I find that it is completely sad that America is still holding up those stereotypes and is not finding ways to develop better quality between men and women, along with establishing a greater body of support for men and women. The media needs to change its stereotypical and sexist views of women to develop equality between the two and to see women not as the sex symbol but as the one who is powerful. That is something that seems to be missing in media.
They’d stop their laughing if they knew her true name, if they knew that this ‘jewel thief’ could skin them alive without a knife” (Maas, 2012, Pg.88) She generally shows disgust towards who look down on women as tools instead of equals. They judged her because of her gender not because of her ability or skill. This is an important chapter because gender inequality is still a big issue in society. Females are generally thought to be weaker and less intelligent than males. However in this book, the female main character is courageous, intelligent and stronger than most men in Adarlan.
One reason from the text would be, “ women may be less likely to participate in educational programs as well as other programs in the facility as a result of these anxieties surrounding their children.” Men do not have this problem because there are more prisons for males than females and so the females are placed further from their familys than the males typically are. This creates and anxiety for the women due to lack of visitaion from their familys which discourages them to take place in the educational
Some complain that women should not be involved in combat due to their body composition, which can make their level of performance lesser to that of a man. However, research has proved that women and men both perform equally when reducing and comparing their different body compositions. (Segal and Lane 12). Many argue it is not fair to rule out half of the population due to some which may not exceed some expectations, there are many humans of both genders who can reach the fitness maintenance of a
Women have been seen as less powerful and given less status in society that has traveled with them into prisons. Due to a low number of women in prisons; they have acquired the characteristic of being “less worthy.” Women have been placed in correctional systems that are designed for men, which has developed their needs as less valued. The war on drugs is dramatically increasing incarceration rates, which has allowed women to become more important and prominent. Before the “get-tough” movement, women were generally averted from prison, receiving probation or other alternatives. They were also given shorter sentences than males, which I find to be extremely interesting.
Second most reported barrier was personal health which included health related problems, followed by internal factors whereas many lacked determination and motivation to stay physically active. Finally, external factors refers to lack of social support, lack of transportation and financial cost of fitness facilities. There were also three perceived benefit theme: health promotion, improved roles, and physical fitness. Discussion Although many barriers and benefits reported by the women in the study are similar to what NHW women reported in other studies, cultural differences were still prominent. Furthermore, the older Latina women of this study did not report social interaction as a personal benefit of being physically active.
Women with physical disabilities experience assault at high rates, and are not viewed as credible victims. They are often “safe targets” for sexual assault; that is, they are less able to fight back and less likely to be believed by others that they were victims of violence. Randall (2010) wrote that “ 'real ' victims can prove their victim status and establish the credibility of their rape claims by demonstrating that they resisted the assault and that their resistance took a socially expected form” (p. 398). However, when
