In Stagecoach, the prostitute and outlaw Dallas and Ringo defy society’s definition of what it means to be a “bad guy” versus a “good guy.” Each is a victim of circumstance having lost their families to murderers. Through their actions both together and apart, they prove to be good people. This illustrates that society judges people by their jobs, not by their characters. This shows that the movie makers think civilization is bad. This idea would be popular in 1939 because many people were poor and didn’t want to be defined by their social standing.
The distinction between the ruled and the ruling class was created. Humanity was lost and the ruling class became crueler and enjoyed the power. The rulers became dictators. People do not rebel against brutal dictators out offear -they are afraid of retribution if their rebellion fails, they do not know what atrocities the brutal dictator can do to them so they are afraid. Here the workers work even though their body hurts, they have pain they have to work because they are powerless “the powerful tend to believe they deserve the success they have had and that the powerless have bought their problems on themselves” (Holmes 44).
Woman suffrage was a rough time for woman. They proved in many ways, to men and the government, that they were capable of having the responsibility to vote. Except, no one seemed to care and thought that they were not ready. Allowing women to vote is a right because otherwise it would be considered oppression, women are just as capable as men to vote, and they will help improve the government. First of all, if women were not granted the right to vote, it would be considered oppression.
Paul 's mother Hester can be described as bitter at best. She was a pretty woman but that was as far as her beauty went. She did not really love her three children, but felt the need to keep up a sick facade of being a good rich mother. She lived a double life and valued keeping up her social position so much so that she felt the need to have servants despite not having the finances to do so. She also irritably claimed that the reason they had no money was because the kids ' father and her husband was an unlucky man.
Ulrich discusses that this slogan succeeded in today’s world so well because women have always had a specific stereotype. They are only known to be the caretakers to the real laborers, therefore women were easily forgotten. If women were seen out of the home doing something or trying to do a “man 's job”, individuals look poorly upon them ultimately leaving women’s history in the dust. “The problems with this argument is not only that it limits women. It also limits
The Victorian Era is known for a pious, sexless society where women were considered inferior. While strides have been taken, there is still an inherent bias against sexually liberated women. This shame is still relevant to society today because of its abuse by those in power. Day by day, political scandals involving sexual assault and rape are being revealed on the news. This is only indicative of the willingness of the elite to abuse those working under them- especially young naive women.
Looking at the modern office there are many “glass ceilings” that Steele refers to not only apply to minorities but to genders in general. Some bosses may stop people from being promoted because they are intimidated by women and do not think they should be placed on the same level as themselves, even though they are equally qualified for the position. Steele also talks about how a misused privileged can turn out to be a disadvantage such as the concept of welfare, because people use it to their advantage so much that it become a crutch for the rest of their lives. Wiley addresses a more individual process of failing to meet educational standards hence; “You get ballplayers who could barely form a compound sentence to keep a dog off them.” This statement is still true to this day due to the fact that so many people get accepted on full ride sports scholarships but their academics are below par, so that if something happens that keeps them from competing in sports they can not afford to stay in college nor can they keep their grades
Companies would ignore the women’s compliments of them being sexually abused and receiving sexual harassment. Its disappointing because this companies where the biggest cleaning companies and still had problems resolving these types of problems. I think it’s unfair because if this same problem happened inside an office or in a higher position, the company would have taken an immediate response to this problem and probably terminated the abuser in that same time. I think these companies de-value women’s work, because they see it as a simple task that they don’t need a degree or certificate to do it. Most of these women are undocumented and most of them don’t know their rights, which companies take advantage of
It is something I didn’t and I’m sure a lot of people don’t know much of, like the author points out. It didn’t surprise me because with her overcoming what she did it makes sense that she would want to help and be sympathetic towards others with handicaps, especially those becoming handicap because of the class they are in. I feel like the answer to why her adult life isn’t in public memory is answered in the reading when it says, “her conversion to socialism caused a new storm of publicity – this time outraged” (Loewen 14). The public, and I’m sure the government, didn’t like that she became a socialist. With that said, I don’t think they would teach students, especially in elementary and middle school, that maybe the way the class system and the government is set up, kind of sucks.
Since laws were published to force factory owners to pay out the minimum wage to the workers, the working class began to make more money. On the other hand, middle class has emerged out of the wealthy upper class, this leads to a better life for everyone. Besides all those positive impacts about the Industrial Revolution, there are also some negative impacts on working conditions. First of all, factories are mostly dirty and dangerous. There were no legal minimum wage or safety issues.
The businesses took advantage of their workers by extending work hours but also leaving their wages the same. They were trying to work them for every penny they could not caring who they were hurting in the process. The people also disfavored the new political system they did not agree with politicians no longer listening to the opinions of the people, they felt that they were being silenced and they could do nothing about it. The corporations may have lowered the costs of a few accommodations but it was outweighed by the unfairness the people had to deal with. The growing of large businesses in size, number, and influenced changed the United States severely.
The British population had split opinions on their first female Prime Minister. Thatcher was a polarizing leader, where some hated her and others loved her. On one side, she was a strong and firm ruler who bettered the British economy. On the other, there were high taxes and unemployment. Thatcher’s war against the unions was very unpopular among the union members, but her followers claim the unions had too much power and that Thatcher was right to defeat them.
In the society that we live in, there is a strong belief that because acts have been passed that we have reached equality between men and women in all forms. Many in society continuously state that there is no need for feminism or any type of movement for women 's rights because they have not been taught the truth and are fed the lies that people around them have constructed. “Women just starting their careers are earning wages closer to their male counterparts today than in previous decades. But researchers say men can quickly surpass women in both pay and seniority, especially in the private sector” (Mcswane 3). There have been many improvements in women 's wages but men are more likely to get raises or have a larger salary because of their sex.
“They ain 't rich folks. Rich folks don 't try so hard.” (1.15, Stockett). The women who own these houses that the maid are cleaning are so focused on society status that they do not even realized how consumed in the “money” that they are. This quote relates to the universal definition, because it shows how blood thirsty some people are to receive the perfect and ideal life. “A bitter seed was planted inside of me.
After this event she learned that not everything is as it seems. Also Josie is jealous of all of the other students because they have what Josie does not have and that is wealth. Especially Ivy Lloyd even though she hides it from everyone else. Then when John Barton suicides, Josie and Ivy settled their differences and became friends. And after John Barton suicides Michael Andretti said to Josie, a person doesn’t necessarily have to be happy just because they have social standing and material wealth.
