Rape and sexual assault does not only occur in the ancient times of The Scarlet Letter but is extremely prevalent in today’s society and is normalized through the depiction of rape culture presented in the media. In today’s society, it is imperative to address the rape culture that is being cultivated by the objectification of women, normalization of violence against them, and the recurring victimization of the victim because it leaves men confused in their relationships with women and women feeling disempowered and violated. One of the initial causes of rape culture is the way in which women are being objectified by men and the media as it creates a society that disregards women’s rights and safety. From a very young age, men are encouraged to believe that all women are property because of the media. In magazine advertisements, it has been tested that sexual objectification occurs more frequently for women than for men and that women are 3 times more likely to be dressed in a sexually provocative manner.
The Hobbit opens up with main character, Bilbo Baggins; a hobbit living a simple and peaceful life until a wizard, Gandalf comes to interrupt and change everything. Joining the two, the dwarves are also embarking on a great quest to reclaim their treasure from the dragon, Smaug. Along the way, Bilbo encounters many challenges that reflect Tolkien’s experiences in war. When faced with the Battle of Five Armies, Bilbo is a reflection of Tolkien in his challenges of war. The deaths, which pervade The Hobbit, parallel the deaths, which pervaded World War One.
Racism stems largely from fear, but also from stereotypes and psychological reasons like past experiences, or feelings of inferiority and blame. Racism is a word that encompasses various negative beliefs and behaviours towards different ethnic groups. It creates a barrier where there need not be, and creates antagonistic feelings between people who could have been good friends if it weren’t for the preconceived notions. An issue present all over the world, racism comes in many shapes and forms of varying offending degrees. Some may be jokes, but others can be harsh words delivered, quiet whispers behind others’ backs, or some may be straight out bullying or physical violence.
CHAPTER ONE 1.1 Introduction According to Bloom, (2008) gender violence includes sexual assault rape; relationship violence in the man and woman and same sex partnerships, harassment of sexual nature, stalking, prostitution and sex trafficking. Gender violence brings out the idea that at times violence serves to maintain structural gender inequalities which includes any violence against men, women, children and all of different sexual orientation. Gender relations greatly influence this type of violence. In order to address this issue, we have to address cultural matters that encourage violence as part of masculinity (Bloom 2008). Gender based violence is predominantly a male-patterned violence: a prevalent violence committed most often but not always by men and it is often motivated by aggression, revenge, competition, and entitlement.
In recent years, the Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community of Jamaica has become an international concern as individuals struggle to survive in the dangerously homophobic environment. The structural abuse, discrimination, and continued acts of violence have lead to hundreds of LGBT Jamaican citizens attempting to seek asylum in Great Britain, Canada, and the United States (Citation). In this paper, I will be investigating why the LGBT community Is the most persecuted group in Jamaica, how it relates to the human rights framework in terms of the rights violated and actions that are being taken, and why it matters. For many years, Jamaica has been called the most homophobic country in the world (Time magazine). Over 85% of
Examples of these crimes are racial attacks, sexism, arson, homophobia, rape, murder, harassment and hate speech etc. Such misconduct is a direct infringement to numerous human rights listed in the South African Bill of Rights. Some of these human rights are namely the right to equality (article 1), the right to dignity (article 2), gender rights (article 8) and the rights of association, religion, language and culture (article 5). Under close scrutiny, with hate crime issues still lingering within society, South Africa’s legal system and ‘rainbow nation’ under new democratic governance are put on the spot. Hate crimes in Meadowlands (including neighbouring communities) are prejudice-driven by locals, for specific incidents, on foreign nationals for residing in a South African community to which they feel, ‘outsiders’ do not belong/fit.
