The poem “Mother to Son” by Langston Hughes is another example of an individual making a choice based on the betterment of others. In this case, the mother is helping her son through life when it gets difficult. One of the main points made by the mother is that “Life for me ain’t been no crystal stair” (Hughes line 20). The mother has not had an easy life, and she wants her son to understand this and learn from it. The mother is telling her son that life isn’t a clear-cut, easy path, but that he must keep working hard and face life’s adversities.

Far more than just a juxtaposition to the father’s frailness, the mother’s action serve as an idealized metaphor for Jason’s own struggles. By watching his mom stand up to people of a higher, privileged class, Jason is meant to be inspired to reject torment from the ‘elite’ of his own grade school microcosm(the bullies). Though rocky at the start of the novel, the relationship between Jason and his sister Julia develops with the plot and, upon conclusion, she also reveals herself as a role model and advocate of Jason’s “Inside-You”. In a way that echoes the actions of her mother, Julia too stands up to an arrogant authority. She tells Uncle Brian that “I intend to study law in Edinburg, and all the Brian Lambs of tomorrow will have to do their networking without me”(52).

The model celebrates marriage and also the strict division of labour between husband and wife. The husband’s role is to be the head of the house hold and it is his duty to provide for his family through full time employment, whereas the wife’s role is to provide care to her husband and children and to make the house a home (Sainsbury, 1996). In the United Kingdom, this model influenced Beveridge’s plan for social security, he assumed that the wife’s role was in the home and that this would make marriage the sole occupation of the married woman. He therefor excluded married women from insurance protection through the offer of reduced contributions with no entitlements to benefits because he believe that the husband would/ should be able to provide income support here (Alcock, 2003). Beveridges model was applied to Irish social policy under the National Insurance Act in
It is in this way that the sexist medical practices perceived in modern practices oppress women, demeaning them and making their problems seem lesser than they are. Comparatively, R. Levinson’s Sexism in medicine (1976) discusses the major implications that sexism within medical practices can have. One large example of this can be found in the practice of victim blaming.

This prospect is the underlying theme of Sashi Deshpande’s novel, That Long Silence, in which her lead protagonist, Jaya, undergoes profound changes against the backdrop of an India that is also evolving.
Initially, the society stigmatized women from acting in films (Ganti 2004). So, when women started acting, the directors had to comply with the social norms in the portrayal of women. Women mostly played the roles of a daughter (taking care of her brothers, helping the mother in the kitchen, and marrying the man of her father 's choice), a great wife (who was responsible for all household chores, taking great care of her husband, children, and would lead the rest of her life by embracing her husband 's memories, once she became a widow), and of a great mother (who is selfsacrificing) (Gokulsing & Dissanayake 2004).
