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 outcome also represents the misogyny of Pakistan 's judicial system as it is impulsively unsympathetic to women. Moreover, a girl named Maria committed suicide after being ordered by the Panchayat to be raped in revenge for her father’s attempt to rape a minor. These cases unfold that under the cloak of justice and local customs, women, and children are treated as a tool of compensation. This form of structural violence has got passive acceptance among marginalized groups. However, these cases resulted in huge outcry by the women and human right activists resulting in parliament passing
Because of sensationalized murder, the upper class began to worry about the affects of sensationalized murder on juveniles and a moral panic ensued. According to Cohen, a moral panic is registered as a threat to the established order and results in public hysteria. This happened when the upper class became concerned with the effects of Penny Dreadfuls on juvenile society. A Penny dreadful is similar to the modern television series with each publication representing an episode in the saga. According to Flanders, Penny dreadful found success with stories of true crime, especially murder.
Mary Warren is a character who generally has good intentions but does not have the bravery and uprightness to follow through with these intentions. She becomes part of the court that condemns witches and seems to be proud of it and enjoys the power that comes to her with it, but she begins to feel guilty when innocent people are being harmed because of it. When it seems that she will do what is honourable and just, she breaks down and proclaims that “[Proctor] wake me every night, his eyes were like coals and his fingers claw my neck” (119). Here, Mary is snapping under the pressure when she cannot do what is right by revealing the truth but rather being corrupted by Abigail and doing what lacks any uprightness and scapegoating John by accusing him of witchcraft, which ultimately leads to his death. Another character who is used to show the dangers of acting without integrity is Reverend Parris.
The majority of the people in the world, though, never like to hear that someone has been murdered, just as Mary and many other “unfortunates” were. I see this issue of crimes against prostitutes not being cared about as a result of the media, which I guess at the time of the play, would be the newspaper. Crimes against prostitutes are never reported like they are for other victims of the same crime, I think because the crimes are against criminals, prostitutes. This is a very hard topic to come to terms with. Personally, a crime committed against anybody is terrible.
[...] It would take a publicly advertised gang rape or her head on a pole to wipe the slate.” The consequences of her rebellious action - that is kicking Blanco’s head “without even thinking” - is rather similar to those in The Handmaid’s Tale. Women are not allowed, let alone having the freedom, to have what the desire and to be siding the opposition against the figurehead of the authority - men. Hence, in order for men to sustain their power and authority over the women, fear is injected into the society as a medium for conformity. In other words, fear among women is essential so that they would comply to whatever norms and beliefs the society uphold. In the cases of both texts, fear is used to exacerbate the oppression of females and ultimately, the commodification of
Sexual harassment, high rates of female genital cutting, and violence against women increased after the revolution. It has become unsafe for women to walk in the streets. With Mubarak stepping aside, chaos rose around the country. Women were even found guilty when they were being sexually assaulted as people found them dressed inappropriate. There was a clear absence of a higher power to punish these criminals.
Early on in the Ripper investigation, the murderer was assumed to be a ‘prostitute killer’, even though many of his victims were not selling their sexual services (Wattis, 2015). Wattis (2015, p.2) noted that the case was an “iconic criminal event” and that it had a big impact on women and their fear of violence and murder. She also noted that it placed a number of temporal and spatial restrictions on their lives. Another impact that the Ripper case may have had on society is the police approach to prostitution. In the decades following this case, many changes to legislation have been made with the welfare of sex workers being seen as more important and more emphasis is put on ensuring they are safe (Wattis, 2015).
Segragation.One of the worst words in the entire human vocabulary.This word has caused people to be murdered,whipped,hanged,and so much more.There have been smaller cases where this is not always the case.However their impact on history is just as important as the darker side of this evil.Such as the various tales of these few men and women who put much on the line to stop this unreasonable action.These are the tales of heros. Rosa parks.Rosa parks was a extremely known activist and was known as the mother of civil rights.She was known as the mother of civil rights because of one of her most remember acts where she refused to get up from her seat on the bus.Rosa parks and just got on the bus on her way home after a long day,and refused to get up just because she was black and white people wanted her seat and three other african americans.The three got up,but Rosa stayed rooted to the spot.The driver went up to rosa and said,”Are you going to get up?”,but Rosa looked straight at the driver and said,”No’’.This caused Rosa to be arrested,but this began
The antagonism between me and my nurse Ratched is the most interesting part of the story. We are in conflict because of our almost opposing characters. While the nurse is geared towards punishing and demoralizing law breakers, I am geared towards breaking the law and having fun, especially since my discharge date from the hospital is uncertain. In the first instance, I am denied permission to go out of the hospital having broken Ratched’s window. She would have been justified to do so since my intention was to escape with a prostitute I had acquainted myself with while in Portland.
Why does a street sweeper dare come into here?” (Rand 62) As Equality walked in there he felt very looked down on, and they saw him as nothing important. The council thought they were more important than him. Collectivism was showing in this part by the council thinking they were higher than Equality when he walked into there home. Before he found the Subway underground he used to think that the everybody thought of everybody as the same people except for the council of scholars, who are the smart people of the society and look down upon people who are less superior than them. All in all people do not think of everybody as the same people, some people think they are higher than the person next to
Within Act 2, the most momentous event in my eyes was the warrant sent out for Elizabeth Proctors arrest. The element that surprised me the most was not the fact Elizabeth was arrested. But the fact that girls like Abigail are so afraid to get in trouble that they will do almost anything, including blaming it on other people like Elizabeth Proctor to avoid the truth. Because of the accusations they have given out, the town has put these girls on a pedestal where they have achieved an unnecessary and strange amount of authority over women in the Salem community. The following quote from Elizabeth on page fifty-five shows her awareness of Abigail and the other girls influence in the court, “The town’s gone wild, I think.
Some tried to stop while others continued to build up the hysteria. However, Abigail is the most responsible for the witch hysteria. Due to her selfishness and jealousy, she created this huge chaos and the people who did not want to get involved in this would get caught in the middle of it. Even after it was over, she did not show any remorse for it. Instead of admitting to the truth, she left the town because she knew how much trouble she would be in if she stayed.
Prejudice towards people of German, Russian, and Chinese descent is still felt today, when an ignorant person calls them a “Communist”, because of the damaging affects the Second Red Scare had. The Salem Witch Trials affected society by realizing that not all those who cry victim should be believed, especially when ulterior motives, such as the girls in The Crucible.These horrific events demonstrate how mass hysteria, mob mentality, and corrupt politicians created an atmosphere of substantial coercion that caused the destruction of innocent people’s
The women sensed this and therefore withheld information that would be vital in proving Mrs. Wright’s guilt in the murder of her husband. Had the men truly cared about what the women had found, perhaps the women would have shed light on their findings. The women are the rightful owners of the reader’s sympathy because they had often felt what Mrs. Wright had, the men had wrongfully acted in disrespect, and the women were written off as unhelpful before they ever had a chance to help. Because of the feelings of the women and the actions of the men, this case would grow cold and justice would not be
