Back in Cady Stanton's time the women were seen as property to men, and if the women did not have men they would not even be considered women, they would be slaves. “After depriving her of her rights as a married woman, if single he taxed her to support a government which recognizes her only when her property can be made profitable to it” ( Stanton 115). Because Cady Stanton changed the way women were treated and looked at by men Maya Angelou was allowed to speak freely about her beliefs on life. When maya Angelou discussed equality she thought of it as a privilege that because men and women are equal all ethnicities should be equal. “The asian, the hispanic, the jew.
Although women can be the boss and the provider in this period, many men still find that they’re better than women in all ways. Something about women being better than men puts their pride down and shatters it. It’s not women that destroy their pride, it’s their jealousy and sense of being sexist is what destroys their pride. They base
Women” (Quindlen 73). It is beyond the scope of this paper to discuss why men and women think differently. However, what I see is both cases supporting the claim of a divide between the sexes, whether this is regarding the opinion of intellectual abilities or the planting of a flower. I suggest it is an important fact to consider that, if the idea of women being intellectually inferior to men is perpetuated, it is easy just to give in and agree with that false way of thinking,

The Army fought them at a certain disadvantage,the Army had to learn to become half indian before it could fight the indians on anything like even terms. We seem not so much to have coveted the lands in the trails than for the soil.The Indians themselves had lived there all their lives,had conquered their environment and were happy in it. They made a bitter fight,which they can’t be blamed for.The Indians was protecting what had been theirs for a long time. What was they supposed to, just lay down and let harm be done to their families and friends . wouldn't you defend what was yours from someone trying to unlawfully take something of
Where they differ, they are not comparable. A perfect woman and a perfect man ought not to resemble each other in mind any more than in looks, and perfection is not susceptible of more or less. In the union of the sexes each contributes equally to the common aim, but not in the same way. From this diversity arises the first assignable difference in the moral relations of the two sexes.” Rousseau states that women should be "passive and weak", "put up little resistance" and are "made specially to please man". Wollstonecraft wonders how someone as Rousseau “lowers his sentiments when describing women and interprets his words as the rationalization that women are in fact, considered either moral beings, or extremely weak that they must be entirely subject to “the supreme faculties of men.
The belief that sexism is no longer a problem in today 's world 2. That programs designed to help women are not necessary 3. That women who complain about sexism are just causing trouble Essentially, modern sexism tries to make the argument that men and women have equal opportunities in today 's world, so people trying to end sexism are actually hurting men. Modern sexism ignores national problems, such as the fact that women are paid less than men for the same job, and instead, it argues that modern policies are unfairly favoring women. Because these beliefs use equality as their surface value, modern sexism is a common argument with today 's politicians and policy-makers.
It’s no surprise, that Shakespeare’s Macbeth was clearly constructed as a rebellion against femininity roles of the time. During the Elizabethan era, women were raised to believe they were inferior to men since men obtained desired masculine qualities such as strength, and loyalty, whereas women were viewed as figures of hospitality (1; 6; 28-31). Obviously, not being tempted by the luxury of subservient women, William Shakespeare rebuked this twisted belief, applying that women deserve more respect than their kitchen tables. However, if transcending female expectations was used as a weapon than for good, is it still considered an act of femininity? Of course not!
The first argument is that everyone believes the truth to be what they’re told is true and what they’re used to as it seems almost paradoxical to question it or study it seriously and objectively, one such thing people believe to be the truth is that women are inferior to men. The second argument argues that as women have never been in power before, it is only because of this that men believe that women are inferior and would be incapable of holding power as they are regarded as the weaker sex. This in effect makes women themselves believe that they would not be successful leaders and instead they bow down to the opinion of men about themselves. The third argument presented is that the past has aided to the faulty opinion that the sexes are not equal. In the past when both men and women were considered equal, the women began to become weak due to the aftermath of childbirth and so they spent their time more inside taking care of the children.
Antigone’s efforts to execute her will on Creon and his men resulted in her being viewed as weak. Creon asks Haimon, “Is a woman stronger than we?”(Sophocles 218). His question clearly implies the sexist and patriarchal values and beliefs ingrained in him just like plenty of men at that time, which is that women are subservient to men and that’s the way it should be. Creon goes on to call Haimon an “adolescent fool!”(Sophocles 221), all because he defended Antigone’s actions. Ironically, Haimon admits to finding Creon’s wisdom more valuable than his marriage; even the nicest of men have their biased perceptions of superiority.
He also stated Jackson refused to listen to many people, and he refused to let Indians live. Theodore believed that the Natives could’ve just assimilated into America’s culture and they 'd be fine.The prosecution then showed that Theodore had a religious bias to this case, which made his statement feel as if they had less weight on the case. They also proved that Van Buren was the president during The Trail of Tears, not
