In addition, document 3 also expresses that factory conditions in Japan were harsher than in India. Document 3, from the viewpoint of two Japanese women, describes their experiences in textile factories. The first woman recalls the lack of heat and food present in the factory compared to the large amount of labor executed by the women. The second woman discusses the illnesses people contracted which led to the death of her thirteen-year-old sister. This reveals the harsh conditions experienced in Japanese factories and that women mainly worked in these factories.
Sandberg uses statistics to show that highly trained women are drooping out of the workplace at a rapid place because of the fear they have their male opponents. She also focuses on the absence of ambition among females in the labor pool and why women in today 's culture are fearful of being ambitions. Factors that cause a so called "leadership ambition gap" are discussed along with why women feel devalued within a professional
Shirley Chisholm once claimed, “The emotional, sexual, and psychological stereotyping of females begins when the doctor says, ‘It 's a girl.’” Throughout history, women have been told that they are not smart enough, pretty enough, or strong enough to do what is classified as “male work”. In more traditional environments, women are expected to hold certain jobs such as nursing or cleaning. The possibility to obtain the more “advanced jobs” such as a doctor or a lawyer was unsubstantial. This harsh stereotyping enables women to capitulate to their male counterparts causing the oppression of women. The theme of oppression of women is exemplified in the novels The Color Purple and Fried Green Tomatoes.
Sexual harassment is a common problem for women in the workplace. The trauma they suffer as a result is extensive. More than half a million women work in the fields and a majority are undocumented immigrants. The documentary Rape in the Fields, addresses some of the struggles these workers face. Due to their immigrant status the women are powerless, subject to unwelcome sexual advances and unable to seek help from the authorities.
Thus, when women’s movements claim the ‘right to leave home and work’, they forget that there are women who have always done this, but not as an achievement, but to not to starve until the death. The result of this forgetfulness, in Brazil, was the advancement of the white woman in the labor market based on the exploitation of the black woman's domestic service (she went on to 'wash dirty panties' of the white/rich women, for they work 'in the office'). Therefore, Sueli Carneiro points out the feminism cannot be linked to a single form of oppression. It must fight against all forms, looking to gender, race, class, etc. (Carneiro, 2002; Carneiro, 2003a; Carneiro, 2003b; Carneiro,
Women recognize that her punishment stemmed in part from the town father’s sexism, and they come to Hester seeking shelter from the sexist forces under which they themselves suffer” (Wang 897). Wang is saying that other women in the society look up to Hester and realize that she was punished by the sexist males of the society. They confide in her for the strength they need to stand up to the male leaders. This shows a big change in gender roles because previously women were too fearful to stand up to
The Justification of the Townswomen There are certain types of people, that everyone eventually meets, that tends to make matters worse. In The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne, all of the townswomen that occupy Boston, Massachusetts, may believe that women should stick together, but, obviously, show differently. They constantly pester Hester and Pearl by forgetting their human nature and letting go of their morals. Little do they realize, the bullying they instigate, is just as bad as the adultery that Hester had committed. As if public humiliation, and being a single mother, is not already enough, she has fellow women antagonizing her in multiple different ways.
BACKGROUND: Historically, in western society women’s sexuality has been suppressed and controlled by male power. Women 's sexuality before the Victorian age was seen as a volatile, all-consuming, dangerous phenomenon, a wild and destructive force that must be tamed (by threat of rape/violence and by actual rape/violence), all of which preserves patriarchy. The vagina was said to have teeth, representing the dangers of the sexually irrepressible vagina as consuming male flesh. It was commonly held that women 's sexual appetite was insatiable, and that men could not keep up. This made men fearful that their women would be unfaithful; women were at this time considered property, after all, little more than chattle whores.
There are many negative beliefs towards the male gender because of the stereotypes society believes in. When people hear about a news of a rape incident between both genders, they automatically assume the female is the victim and the male is the offender. They make this assumption based on real statistics - since 99% of sex offenders are male and over 80% of the victims are female (sapac.umich.edu). For this reason, parents with daughters feel skeptical when their daughters is around a male since they believe she might be forced into sexual conducts. Society believe when males have a high tendency to feel sexual pleasure, they can not control themselves and will force another individual into sexual conducts in order to satisfy their urge.
Javaid (2015) examined police responses to the male victims that do report the crimes that were committed. Javaid (2015) and Denov’s (2001) findings were very similar in that police officers do not treat male rape seriously. They believe that no man would say no to sex and that they themselves would want to be sexually assaulted by a female. Frei (2008) states that due to the gender roles in society, the media reports extensively on the few female sex offenders that are charged. They show the women as sick and perverted since she deviated from her stereotypical role of a care giver.
