It is with great pleasure that I offer my highest recommendation for Kayana Cobb’s admission into your law program. (credentials) I have been __________and before that__________, at __________for x years. I have known Kayana for several years and served as a mentor to her. In the time that I have known her she has demonstrated outstanding qualities far beyond comparison to many other individuals I have mentored. I fully support Kayana’s decision to attend law school and believe her commitment to altruism will enable her success as a law student and later as an attorney.
in Turnbull 197). After the novel failed to achieve the commercial success he so much desired he wrote: “Women do not like it. They do not like to be emotionally passive.” (ibid. 507) Fitzgerald consciously gives them secondary roles in the story, which keeps with the traditional view that women do not have a voice. Though these women have tremendous effects on men, which are often detrimental, they are portrayed as “mere complements” to the men(Mardsen).
In the quote, Esperanza reveals one reason she doesn’t have friends is because of the gender norm in which boys do not talk to girls in public. If a boy and girl are together, the boy and girl could be deemed not appropriate or acceptable being together because of social scripts in place in society. Esperanza also says,”And since she (Nenny) comes right after me she is my responsibility”(#8). Esperanza has a distaste
It is like our manhood is consumed by these ranks and by people who still remind us that we are not fit for society and that we do not deserve to be men just because we do things that are not considered to be manly enough. The brilliant minds of other men will change slowly, people will start to do things or start acting in a different way than men want others too. The problem is that men are afraid of other men because they think that they will reflect their image of manhood and how a man should act. They are afraid that these people who are homosexual or those who look and act like a women will ruin the image of manhood. In order to restore their image as men, they start to mock these people, have conflicts with them, bully them until they start to feel desperate in life, which will lead them to hurting themselves or commit suicide because they think they are wrong and should not even
The inequality of genders is further developed when it is determined that many of Esther's problems stem from her conflicting views of “[hating] the idea of serving men in any way” (Plath 14). Esther’s discomfort of serving men and having to remain subordinate to them demonstrates her inability to conform to what is traditionally expected of her. However as a female in a male controlled society there is not much she can do or say without receiving discrimination from the dominate sex. As well, the concept of female sexuality and its relativity to virginity also furthers the presence of gender inequality. The expression of love or passion is obsolete
May or may not be true but some women see beauty as a threat to steal their man away from them. They can not trust their man/women to be around such beauty because they think one has more beauty than them, so that is what makes them feel threatened. Some believe people who have beauty get it all so easily, especially if it shines when they are young. They tend to end up evil or selfish and “do not need to learn anything” because they get
Stereotyping is a main reason why people don’t seize the opportunity to watch or play a sport. Games such as rugby have connotations of masculinity, strength, aggression all of which are perceived by socialisation as unattractive traits in a women meaning the engagement from both sex’s is very lopsided with heavy coverage and engagement from men yet a smaller participation in women. Sports such as gymnastics also possess these stereotypical views of flexibility and to be associated with girls completely meaning men across the world will be sceptical about declaring there interest in that sport out of fear from being discriminated against or viewed negatively from peers colleagues and society its self-narrowing the sports audience and participants
However, the reasons for this discrimination they face/have faced are very different. Women were, and arguably still are, oppressed due to misogyny, or the dislike, contempt for, or ingrained prejudice against women. An example of a misogynistic belief is the idea that women are inherently intellectually inferior to men, or that women shouldn’t have authority over their own bodies while men should. This is usually caused by sexist stereotypes and beliefs that are present in the media (“Shocking: What [female celebrity] Looks like with No Makeup On!” “New Covergirl Is a Man! ?”) and in children’s upbringing (“boys are strong, girls are weak”, “boys go to
She explains that “a women at a certain age not married is considered a deep personal failure, but a man who is unmarried they think he just hasn 't come around to making his pick.” In society, we hold different standards for both male and female this is were feminists demand for equality plays a vital role. In addition, Adichie explains how when she was a teacher she was not worried about the material she would teach; instead she was worried about the professional female appearance she would have to uphold. She claims if she looked more serous and perfusion all she would be more respected but the males in the class. Based off this topic many might say, well the way women dress is a power they have. Adichie calls this power “bottom power”.
With the latter two categories not in favour of equality then the only remaining category, if you are in favour of equality, is feminism. Misandrist feminist beliefs have negative ideas that men should suffer for their past suppression of women. This deters many people from labeling themselves as feminists. Sandra Kim addresses this in her article “How Most Things You Know About Feminists Are Vicious Conservative Lies”: Misrepresentations of feminism are so powerful that many progressives and liberals today don’t necessarily want to self-identify as a feminist even when they believe in what feminism stands for. They don’t want women or anyone else to be abused, raped, exploited and discriminated against.
