Katie is described as a simple woman with simple views of the world but she is not naïve or dumb. Rather, she sees things clearly. At first, she is not interested in politics in the way that she would actually plan to make a career in it. Unlike the stereotype farmer’s daughter, Katie is really outspoken, expressive and knowledgeable in politics. She just believes that the country needs good politicians and she knows when somebody is good and when somebody is not.
Polly’s sensibility is one of her most noticeable traits, Polly does not usually over react to things or spend money foolishly on objects she does not need. After Polly moved to the city and became a music teacher, she saved most of the money she earned and used it to pay for her brother’s education. Although Polly’s family did not have the money to pay for Wills education, Polly had no problem earning the needed money for her brother. Polly can also be very frugal, she makes and mends most of her own clothes rather than buying new ones like most of the other ladies, later she even helps Fanny and Maud make their own dresses, hats, and other garments. Polly does not find mending clothes a chore, she finds the activity rather fun and relaxing.
Ulrich wrote the slogan “Well-behaved women seldom make history”, and refers to those women who are respected greatly for their actions, since they make good choices; also, these women aren’t trying to be remembered, yet everyone hears them because they are well-behaved; they are doing what seems reasonable or natural to them. This slogan is seen all around the world today, and it still contains a powerful meaning. Many objects are sold with this slogan on them, yet many of them represent different interpretations of the slogan. Those selling the objects perceive the slogan differently; likewise, the buyers who purchase it. First off, a store by the name of “Tesoro Jewelry” sells key chains with
This bolsters her image as an independent, resourceful and “do-it yourself type of woman. “In Pittman if a woman would have tried to have her own tire store she would have been run out of business”(p.59). This quote not only reinforces Mattie's independence as a single woman running a whole business, but also describes how women did not have opportunities in Pittman outside of traditional gender
It is not an ideal situation for either party involved. I understand the family values and if her story becomes public knowledge it was impact the image of the organization due to the nature of whom she decided to stay in a relationship with. On the other hand, is this fair to the employee? Her decisions did not affect the quality of work, she continued to give excellence while she going through the situation. Can employers determine who one will be in a relationship with?
Malinowski uses paraphrasing when she mentions that a working Indian women fells free now that she is making money to pay for her education. In doing this she says the same thing Friedman did just in different words so the reader can understand what she is talking about. Another time she is uses paraphrasing is when she mentions that at the end of Friedman’s article that the world is now safer and that Friedman does not favor Indian employment over American employment. In doing this Malinowski raises questions because in the article that Friedman wrote he never mentioned anything about global safety and he also never mentioned anything about American
The class book, Principle of Management, states if a company uses diversity when hiring employees, they can help avoid lawsuits. It further explains, that this is because two thirds of all lawsuits are lost with an average settlement of more than $600,000. It can be very costly for a company to not use diversity when hiring. I do not think that Hooters is discriminating against men, because it is their concept of having the Hooter girls serve the customers. It is their way of marketing their business and everyone who applies their knows they only hire girls as servers.
Unlike the girl, I’m lucky that my mom and grandma are coupon queens and save on everything. So I consider myself lucky to have skin care, lotion, and decent clothes. I’m not some fashion queen so I don’t need super fashionable clothing. All in all, I seem to relate to this girl quite a bit. With our similarities being acne, ashy knees, missing family, money being an issue, and depression, I believe that I relate to the girl in the
Connie wanted two things in her life, freedom, and escape. All she ever wanted was to leave her house and go out with her friends and live a normal teenager life, simple. She felt trapped and forced to be a certain way by her family. Her mother wanted Connie to be more like her older sister June. June was nice, quiet, respectful woman and was a secretary at a school.
But they all say the same things and nobody says anything different from anyone else” (Bradbury 28). In their society, no one sees their isolation or bothers to think that they could socialize differently. They’re busy with their commercialized lives- too busy to see any issues with the lives they lead. This means that the civilians are easily swayed into abiding by the laws created by their corrupt government. (STEWE-2) There is an instance where this submissive, ignorant behavior appears and displays the disconnect.
