“For the concept of the monstrous feminine, as constructed within/by a patriarchal and phallocentric ideology, is related intimately to the problem of sexual differences and castration.” (Creed, 1993, p.2) Creed takes an interesting approach to Kristeva theory of abjection and Freud’s theory of castration and applies it to horror film. Taking Kristeva’s theory of the abject and the archaic mother, she constructs monstrous representations of the abject woman. The monstrous womb which is the representation of mans fear of woman’s maternal functions. “Fear of the archaic mother turns out to be essentially fear of her generative power. It is this power, a dreaded one, that patrilineal filiation has the burden of subduing.” (Kristeva, 1982, p.77) Freud argued that woman terrifies because she is castrated.

The modern music industry is an issue that surprisingly, women have yet to tackle.
Discuss the major contributions of feminist theory to the understanding of social And political life. Feminist theory has come to be recognised as an influential theory that has singled out the social exclusion of women. This could be seen as its main premise but it is a far broader perspective. Feminism has articulated that gender differences subjected to sex as argued have played a secondary role to men in the most influential decision making and power positions in society. This has caused the invisibility of women, which has become an indicator of inequality.
Furthermore, Atwood, who was surrounded by the intellect of the female faculty members at Victoria College, often portrays female characters dominated by the patriarchal society in her poems. She also elucidates on women 's social oppression as a result of male sovereignty. Atwood studies “power, and how it operates and how it deforms or shapes the people who are living within that kind of regime” (Oppenheim). Perhaps, Atwood’s greatest feminist poems, related to the empowerment of women and their role in society, are “This Photograph of Me” and “Siren Song”. Atwood uses symbolism to express the thoughts of the speaker and the theme of female oppression.
The relation of power with special emphasis laid upon the role of women in the society is a never- ending debate. While some authors focussed on the strengths of women by vitalising their role with the protagonist in their novels, some covered the pain and agony faced by women at the hands of brutal men. J. M. Coetzee is definite in sharing the realities of post-war torment on women population through serious character depictions in his novels. Post-colonialism is the central theme in the works of J.M. Coetzee, and every work of the controversial author reveals some point of pain accepted by meek women.
Introduction Women’s living domestic violence is a vulnerable population, and therefore, has huge concerns to social work issues. Social work is commitment to this population because the DV generates gender inequalities, social injustice, discrimination, and in some cases, generates weakness of basic human needs. In short, DV has a strong relation with social work commitments. Domestic Violence (DV) is an extensive phenomenon, with millions of women attacked by intimate partners and ex partners (Black, 2011). The term DV denotes an ongoing pattern of coercive control maintained through psychological, physical, sexual, and/or economic abuse that fluctuates in severity and chronicity.
Ads also have subliminal or in some cases really open meanings. Women are portrayed in several different ways in ads. There are lots of sexist ads around and most of which are about women. Sexism is defined as the attitudes based on traditional stereotypes of gender roles. In a society that men and women are competing for the same business position or looking at the big picture all genders having the same rights why are women used as sexual objects?
Gender can be formally defined as the social differences of being feminine or masculine that are influenced by society (Holmes, 2007, p. 2). Young children are strongly influenced by school, peers and family/primary carers; these institutions are the first points of contact for children in understanding and learning gender. Society influences and contributes towards a sense of self, identity and therefore gender. Although some individuals have agency and the ability to make their own choices to some extent, these choices are often restrained by social structures
To begin with, one of the fundamental aspects of social interaction depends on an individuals´ gender identity. By interacting with others, individuals within a society create their gender identity through their sense of dominating cultural ideology, and “it is through these interactions that one of the most fundamental divisions of society, male and female, is legitimated” (West & Zimmerman, 1987, p. 126). That is to say, society creates gender, not vice versa. This gender categorization and basic distinction between genders, children learn early on from their parents and other influencing adult figures. As a result, when children mature they take on these adopted characteristics of their societal attributes and emerge into intermediate adolescence

A Catchy Title Bio 100-02 Various abortion practices have been circulating for thousands of years. Before our technological advancements in medicine and surgery, women had to resort to more dangerous means for wanted abortions. The various methods range from jumping from a high point and inducing a miscarriage by landing on the stomach to deliberately standing in the snow for long periods of time in attempt to contract hypothermia, which was believed to be fatal for the fetus; however, these methods today would be dubbed as “back-alley,” or illegal, abortions due to their risky nature. It was not until the 1880’s did medical practitioners even begin to perform surgical abortions; and even then, there was a high risk
