Companies would ignore the women’s compliments of them being sexually abused and receiving sexual harassment. Its disappointing because this companies where the biggest cleaning companies and still had problems resolving these types of problems. I think it’s unfair because if this same problem happened inside an office or in a higher position, the company would have taken an immediate response to this problem and probably terminated the abuser in that same time. I think these companies de-value women’s work, because they see it as a simple task that they don’t need a degree or certificate to do it. Most of these women are undocumented and most of them don’t know their rights, which companies take advantage of
These lines also explain the elevated tension between the lady and the apartment now on the sexual level; she cannot be herself or even allow herself the freedom to be comfortable in her own skin not only because of the lack of space, but also for fear of being objectified and sexualized by the other tenants. The use of figures of speech such as simile and metonymy is also evident in these lines. The persona likened the steps that the persona to a trespasser, on one level, this is to emphasize the measures that she must take as she stays in the apartment; but on the other hand, this could also signify that she remains an outsider in spite of living there, that she truly does not belong in the apartment. The use of metonymy in these lines: “lazy Susan” for the dining room, the “toilet” in place of the comfort room was effective because it emphasized the rooms and its purpose without having to explain them thoroughly. Aside from
Elevator social experiment; a few people (actors - that were in on the experiment - knew what was happening and was playing a part in allowing the experiment to be conducted smoothly) entered an elevator, all facing the back (instead of what is ‘normal’; facing the door/front) a stranger/subject enters the lift of people facing away from the elevator door it was observed if the subject ‘conformed’ to their environment; whether if they slowly turned to ‘fit’ or ‘blend’ into their surroundings the actors swapped in and out of the elevator, the ones entering also facing the back of the elevator to allow the surrounding to seem more ‘normal’ a large majority of the ‘test subjects’ that entered the elevator had originally stood facing the door,
In all my conversations, we had a consensus that Nurse Ratched was essentially a metaphor for society at large in trying to control people. Thus, I held in high regards the piece of evidence when there are people, thanks to McMurphy, “drunk and running” and “carrying on with women” to the point, and Chief comes to believe that “maybe the Combine wasn’t all-powerful.” (305) In causing an actual change to the mindset of patients like Chief, McMurphy had truly mentally liberated the patients from the control of not Nurse Ratched but that of the entire Combine. Nevertheless, in my second conversation, my partner pointed out that this very same event had left to the physical
Nothomb uses contrasting sentence structure between Amélie 's thoughts and her dialogue and actions to demonstrate the way that Westerners often ignore other cultures despite knowing better because they view themselves as more important. Amélie displays this exact behavior when she jokes about Fubuki 's struggles despite understanding how serious they are and again later when she follows Fubuki into the bathroom even knowing the consequences of her actions. In her writing style, Nothomb often breaks from the story to teach the readers about Japanese culture. During these breaks, Nothomb explains Japanese culture in great detail, spending especially long on a women’s role in Japanese society. She rants on about the “physical and mental corsets,...constraints, crushing denials, absurd restrictions, dogmas, heartbreaks,” and “conspiracies of silence and humiliation” that plague women in Japanese culture (65).
This term is often used by retailers trying to get rid of excess stock that isn't selling, mostly just to give the impression of deep discounts. An “Elephant in The Room” is something very obvious but is extremely uncomfortable to talk about. A family issue that might cause discord if brought up in discussion is one example. The coined phrase is, “Addressing the Elephant in the Room”. She also exchanged the color white for pink in the title of this work, which can also speak to her awareness of white washing and privilege even within our society’s color selection with phrases and terminology.
Something will always need to be fixed in society because society is a reflection of us, and we are not perfect. Recently, there’s been many issues that have caught the attention of people living all across the world. Things such as police brutality, sexual assault in the workplace, and immigration law, just to name a few, but there’s also been an underlying issue that people are becoming more informed about, and that I believe matters - prison reform. Prison reform matters because in many instances, prisoners are treated inhumanely when they are locked up, and aren’t treated as humans when they have served their time. I believe we can bring about change in the prison system by changing the way we punish people who do commit crimes and focusing more on actual rehabilitation.
Many explanations to why people tend to not see the change that occurred in the concept of the room would be because growing up, according to our experience and knowledge with living and looking inside of houses, that rooms are perfectly parallel so assumptions are therefore made that just because we have seen rooms before, means automatically that the Ames room is also parallel. Our perspective in one corner of the Ames room gives us a reason to believe that a figure is smaller than the second figure in the other corner of the room but even thought people or figures cannot logically get taller instantly, our brain makes that assumption based on the past events we have encountered with being in rooms and such etc. The room is completely distorted and there are no right angles. The windows or decorations in the room are changed to make our perception much stronger to make us believe that the room is not distorted and that the figures did get bigger when in reality they did not. The Ames room is executed as a perfect optical illusion for the reason that is uses: distance, depth, and varying sizes to be playing games with our brains and make us think one way rather than the other
As the United States evolved as a country, many issues began to surface. A specific factor that acted as a tumour within the country was “an intolerable conformism that threatened to swallow up the individual, to render the individual human being invalid.” (Poel 6) Chief Bromden serves as the platform that Kesey uses to highlight these issues. The Chief makes constant references to the fog he says is swirling around his head within the institute, clouding his mind and thoughts. He uses the fog as a way to hide himself from the issues facing other inmates and problems within himself. It is only when McMurphy arrives, that he begins to be drawn out of
