Why is it okay for a boy to come down to the girls floor without a note, in a teachers opinion, yet a girl gets told off even if she goes to the boys floor with a permission slip. How is it fair that teachers find it okay to be more strict in terms of grading girls assessments just because they’re girls and re supposed to do better than boys. Aren’t boys and girl in the same grade level supposed to have the same in intellectual capabilities? Teachers are hand in hand with the administration when it comes to oppressing female students and allowing them to suffer. The mental effects of categorizing us girls will eventually take its toll on our tolerance and cooperation.
Scout believes Miss Caroline, her school teacher, is not kind because of things that had happened on her first day of school. She was told that Atticus needed to stop teaching her to read, and was punished for being disruptive during class. Atticus explains the situation to Scout by saying,“‘You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view... until you climb into his skin and walk around in it” (Lee 33). Miss Caroline is new to the town and is looked down upon by other teachers. To see it from Miss Caroline’s point of view is important because one could be biased and seeing it from another’s point of view can explain why they are the way they are or why they did something.
Most—if not all—students who are affected by the dress code policy is girls, and since these girls are told by the dress code to cover almost their whole bodies, they are, inevitably, left with nothing but shame and insecurity towards their figures. “The limitations of the dress code, especially for females, can make a young woman feel insecure, concerned, or even ashamed of their natural feminine figure” (Martens, 2014). Additionally, since students are pressured to follow unreasonable rules inside the school,
She views her teachers and principle as a symbol of the regime, and she acts out against it. Even though Marji was a troublemaker and could have listened better in school, because she had the opportunity to go to school, she shows us as readers that it's important to stand up for your rights, both male and female rights. She showed us that just because someone is telling you can’t do something because they don’t like what you stand for, doesn’t mean you have to conform to their ideas.

The second chapter of the book is explicitly questioning men, (specifically Jean Jacques Rousseau), who have argued over the ages that women don 't have enough mental strength to become morally sound on their own and that they need the guidance of men to make rational decisions in life. But Wollstonecraft believes that if women have souls, then they must have the same rational powers as men. The only other opposition to this is to claim that women don 't have souls, which even the worst misogynists in the world would hesitate to argue. The biggest challenge to women 's education seems to be the belief that women should be kept innocent like children and taught nothing other than the skills for pleasing their future husbands. The kind of education that these authors were promoting, she felt, was making women incompetent and counterproductive, making the text degrade the other half of the human species and teach women to please people all their lives in the name of virtue.
It shows the disadvantages that many students face in public schools, such as being placed in lower level classes where the students are considered notoriously rude and ignorant by the school administrators. The movie works to disprove the idea of the students being lazy by showing the hard work they put into their notebook and the passion they show when Miss Gruwell teaches them with an attitude that shows she believes they are just as capable of any other students. “Freedom Writers” addresses the problem of the structure of the education system, showing the viewers how the system makes it more likely for certain students to be left behind or left out of academic success. The movie “Freedom Writers” contains fatal flaws in its portrayal of the characters. The content is riddles with racist and classist connotations that reduce the efficacy of the movie’s attempt to seem like a progressive film.

Adolescence can be a hazardous and perplexing time and for teens, girls especially, and they do not deserve to have their authority figures teach them that their bodies and their natural human desires are things that are shameful. No adult should teach a child that they should cover or hide their bodies in disgrace. For preteens and young adults, living in one 's own skin is already hard enough, the added disrespect is not at all necessary or helpful. Abstinence only curriculums often promote sexism and can leave young people, especially girls, with the impressions that doing something that is very natural somehow degrades them, lessens their worth, or makes them dirty. This is detrimental to not only the way women view themselves but also to the way that men perceive female sexuality.
Violence is a constant, a catalyst for the cycle of life and death that has existed since the beginnings of life. However, humans have now, and have been, using violence for senseless pain and suffering. _ _ In James Gilligan’s novel, Preventing Violence, Gilligan discusses that a major cause of violence is feelings of shame, which usually roots from social factors and views of masculinity.

About 57.1% of all female students are targets of educator sexual misconduct (Sexual Abuse of Students). Based on the New York Times article titled “‘Private Hell’: Prep School Sex abuse Inquiry Paints Grim Picture,” 61 Prep school students were abused by staff members and fellow students at a prestigious private boarding school.

Toxic Masculinity is the root of men’s oppression, and it requires our attention to be adequately addressed. This is because in the United States we teach boys that demeaning women make them more valuable to society. The idea is that women are only around to give men pleasure and to be seen as objects. In the documentary, we are also told by Joe Ehrmann that in addition to demeaning women we are taught that we need to strive for money and positions of power to obtain money with the help of media and film perpetuating the idea. He also added that if that we look at what society is telling boys, they will lose what is truly important in life.
