It is an honor for me to be invited to join such an exclusive society of distinguished people. I am excited about being part of the National Honor Society in view of the limitless opportunities and the strong support system it represents for me. I consider myself a scholar, by reason of the fact that I thrive to excel in my academics and accomplish my best in any achievable way. Through my years as a student I have worked on helping my classmates and my community in any way I possibly can. By offering equine therapy to participating in the climate reality project I have demonstrated leadership and service to my community.
483) to support her claim, all of which appeals to ethos. She also incorporates her own personal life experiences such as “Poverty was no disgrace in our household. We were socialized early on, by grandparents and parents, to assume that nobody’s value could be measured by material standards” (hooks, p.484) to indicate that she has firsthand knowledge about growing up poor. By citing prominent source her audience is able to think that hooks (1994) is aware of the issue and writing of her life experiences validates the argument she was going to shortly make. Adding to her ethos appeal, hooks (1994) uses perceptive appeal to pathos.
Her actions in the early stages were drawn towards the Ethics of Care principle, which later were subjected under the Utilitarian principle, as per which she first, determined the ethical nature of dilemma and then further on influenced others to believe so. The Utilitarian Principle speaks about morality concerning the majority; most good, least harm. That was the ideology of Erin Brockovich. She taught herself of the fallacies PG&E was under; sacrificing for the good of most, disregarding her personal life under which were influenced the lives of her three infants along with her boyfriend. She devoted herself to her job, making sure the majority that need her help or were unaware of the happenings, get a share of influence and say over the matters pertaining to their lives with their involvement to a superior
They learned about how to be good mothers and wives instead of learning skills for jobs, which completely restricted them from outside job opportunities. Women have always struggled with equality throughout our global history, and the Han Dynasty is a great example of this
Personal possessions are nonexistent, individual preferences are condemned, and love is forbidden. Obedience is deeply ingrained that the word “I” is erased from the language. Ayn Rand went through some of this herself. She was always expected to say “we” instead of “I” because her siblings would always be with her since she was the oldest of 3. For example, in the book “Anthem” whenever
She gives the audience a glimpse into women’s life in a patriarchal society. When Antigone insinuated the idea of burying Polynices, Ismene firstly does not understand Antigone. This is indicated in the phrase, "What work, What's the risk? What do you mean?". She is clueless since people in the ancient world never go against the law and especially women are supposed to be obedient and are less significant.
It reminds me of the constant humiliation me and my best friend at the time received because we were tomboys, and weren’t dating like my sisters had. (13-16 years old mind you) It is a constant reminder that I’m not the only person who has gone through this, many other people probably experienced the very same judgement. And this judgement continues till this very day. Just a few weeks ago my Mother told me I need to watch my mouth, because it’s not “ladylike.” My one question that I kept coming back to is, “is gender really such a big deal?” I’ve never felt like I completely fit into either of the boxes, and I’m okay with that. I don’t need a permanent label either, I’m a female but I’m also just me.
A great author once said “It can be overwhelming to see the variety among moral perspectives and the different directions they might lead us when it comes to practical moral issues” (370 Cowan). Through my interview with my Aunt I can say I say that I too felt very overwhelmed by the array of answers she gave me as I discussed God and philosophy with her. Going into the phone call I knew that her answers would make for a good paper simply because she is a non-practicing wicca (non-practicing being that she does not belong in a coven currently). My Aunt married into my family when I was 18 and she has brought a very interesting and very diverse beliefs to my presbyterian family. Through this dialogue I was able to see where she was weak in her faith and where she held strong.
While some differences between “My Mother Never Worked” and “I Want a Wife” are evident, the similarities are noticeable. Most of Society has the belief that because a woman is just a housewife, she does not work. The federal government saids “a woman who is a homemaker, who has never been a wage earner, is eligble for Social Security benefits only through the earnings of her deceased husband (Smith-Yackel 118). Bonnie Smith-Yackel I believe is shocked, and upset as she has realized, how hard her mother really did work. Martha Smith did
Most people believe that it is what jumpstarts a prosperous future. The fact that Sandra went to graduate school after completing her undergrad studies is a feat in itself. However, in her father’s eyes his daughter could not achieve what her brothers could because she is a woman. Luckily Sandra Cisneros ignored her father’s wishes and became the amazing writer that she is, because it is what she believed was her destiny in life. One could argue that gender roles are a part of sacred traditions that should not be broken.
