The woman might not want to stay with a man that does not truly love her. However, she has no choice but to stay with her husband and his new wife. This is why one of the reasons Hammurabi’s code is unjust. Another law that is unjust to women, is law 213, document E, if a man kills the baby inside a daughter of a free man, he will pay 2 shekels of silver. This is unfair to the woman because the man killed the baby and he does not need to pay much for it.
In my opinion, I think one of his bad characteristic is that he is untrustworthy. I find him untrustworthy because he went and had sex with another woman and in all honesty, I think he could have stopped her from doing anything to him. Even though he cheated (or at least I think so), he still thinks of his wife. No woman matters to him but, his wife. This tells me that even if he were to marry someone else, it wouldn’t mean anything to him because he loves his wife and he would rather have his wife than any other woman.
John Proctor’s actions of flawed conderdicted many times with those of honorable, however the flawed actions proved to overshadowed why he may have chosen to act with honor. In this play, Elizabeth Proctor’s romantic jealousy relates to how people in modern day may act if their spouse cheats on them. In modern day, it is more likely to get married to someone like John Proctor who has no respect and goes around sleeping with others, because it a common thing. Another thing that modern day people do is avoid telling other anything that could make them look bad, unless it comes to the point where you have to. This is because everyone is always worried about themselves in modern day society, whiv
It was thought to be improper to see a woman give birth. “Childbirth was one area of life that was distinctly female; men...generally excluded from the birthing chamber” (Married Life). Although this allows for many sexist ideas to be shared, it also allows for the beautiful relationships between women to be created. Women had to stick together in a world run by men. They became a strong, quiet network of friends and families that wove their way through hard times and
In addition to that, her inner turmoil further leads her to doubt her own reliability of keeping Pearl and she begins to consider committing suicide; she fears that if the child would rather be better off without her. “The scarlet letter had not done its office” (Hawthorne, 182). Towards the end, Hawthorne develops a tone of irony as he describes the affect the scarlet letter had on her. Instead of severely punishing and humiliating her, the scarlet letter did the opposite of its intended
“‘I get lonely,’ she said. ‘You can talk to people, but I can’t talk to nobody but Curley. Else he gets mad’” (87). Curley’s wife dreamed of being an actor, but instead settled for less when she married Curley out of fear of getting nowhere. She acts out because she wishes she would’ve followed her dreams to be a successful actress and be happy.
Taking traditional gender roles into account, women submit and sacrifice more of their lives for their husband. In a healthy marriage, or any relationship, one member cannot have full autonomy, or else risk the relationship. Independence and relationships do not mesh
Small lies that we subconsciously tell ourselves mean nothing in the grand scheme of things, but if we tell ourselves small fibs on a regular bases over small and miniscule problems, what’s to stop us from saying bigger lies when bigger issues arise? One of the biggest issues, gender discrimination, must be abolished since women struggle with the gender pay gap, and unfair treatment in sports, while men struggle with the gender discrimination in divorce cases, mostimes leaving their gender as the main reason the mother receives custody over the child or children. Women may be able to participate in the same profession as men, but the large gap in pay between genders fails to attribute to the positives of said situation. The members of the Institute for Women 's Policy Research have used statistics over the past hundred years to conclude that: “Hispanic women will have to wait until 2233 and Black women will wait until 2124 for equal pay” (Pay Equity). The IWPR states that, “According to our research, if change continues at the same slow pace as it has done for the past fifty years, it will take 44 years—or until 2059—for women to finally reach pay parity.”
While Hero is willing to have a controlling husband, Beatrice shows that she wants to have her own and answer to no man. She 's not having that. Her favorite target is Benedick, with whom she has something of a history, to the extent that she exercises her talent for mocking him on the poor unsuspecting messenger and takes the first opportunity to needle him once he arrives. She really doesn’t have any interest of having a husband. Her slick mouth and attitude will truly prevent her from
It happens that girls are discouraged from entering certain fields of study with claims that they should make more feminine choices. In many parts of the world this discrimination prevents girls from for filling their academic ambitions and therefore eventually grow up to feel inferior to the men that were able to fulfill their ambitions and become more successful later on. There are several overlaps of the different understandings of what feminism actually is, one main idea that many need to cancel out is the belief that feminism is an anti-make movement. In fact, feminism targets the equality of society as a whole, it addresses the equality of both males and females so that we live in a more peaceful and civilized manner. By General definition, feminism is a philosophy that values women and their contributions to society, and well as giving these contributions the importance which they truly deserve.
On the other end, when looking at the practice of monogamous marriage versus polygamous marriages we begin to run a very fine line. It cannot be forgotten that Canada has a prevalent history of colonization and Canadian laws were formed on this basis. In the discourse, monogamous marriage is often cited as being essential to Canadian national identity and that to threaten this institution would be to threaten Canadian social cohesion and values (Benedet, 2013; Wray, Reimer, & Cameron, 2015). Despite the movement towards having more secular laws, it needs to be taken with caution that the laws and legislation in Canada are not assimilating other religions in to western or Christian ideologies which are prevalent in Canada. On that note, it is important to recognize, as Gaucher (2016) speaks to, that monogamous marriage in Canada has not been without its own pitfalls.
