(see also Harell, Panagos, Matthews 2011). Furthermore, it was apparent that Aboriginals supported and lacked support for opposite groups of the general population. The support for the NDP party was where the gender gap among Aboriginals was the most vivid. Aboriginal women were more likely to vote NDP, whereas Aboriginal men were more likely to vote Liberal. The colonialism view on this finding is that the NDP party has been supportive of the rights of Aboriginals since the 1960’s.
By addressing Tony Abbott as the “leader of the opposition” in her speech she takes away his personal identity and leaves him just with a superficial political title. This act shows her dominance, power and hierarchy in parliament. The Degradation of Tony Abbott is the first light attack for his unacceptable statements against women. As Gillard is the first non-male prime minister of Australia she sets the Standard with her own register of language. With this female register Gillard promotes more power as the content originates from a female minister of Parliament.
Lower value of women in the society or family may be a cause for their invisibility in economic activities of the country (Chaudhuri, 2013).Gender discrimination in Canada is not that high as compared to past, but still discrimination exist in the workforce. Some of the study prove that 15% of the workers are facing discrimination at their work place (Relations, 2016).On the other hand Canada is a world leader in the promotion and protection of women’s rights and gender equality. These issues are central to Canada’s foreign and domestic policies. Canada is committed to the view that gender equality is not only a human rights issue, but is also an essential component of sustainable development, social justice, peace, and security (Canada,
This theoretical paper assesses the progress or lack thereof made over time with regards to racialize/visible minority and gender participation/progress in Canada’s workplaces. This research statement and ultimately the final research paper would answer the following questions: • Is gender still a hindrance in Canada’s workplaces? • Are there evidence of increasing racial and gender diversity in workplaces? • Are there evidence of increasing gender diversity in workplaces? • Is racial diversity and gender a hindrance or benefit to organizational culture?
She relates the weak status of women of Canada and her narrative becomes the narrative of Canada as weak victim. Women are depicted as a colony in male dominated society and Atwood”s portrayal of women in texts becomes the portrayal of Canada as a colony in the context of Americanization of Canada. Atwood novels deal with gender politics and questions the role of gender and patriarchal structures and searches for woman’s identity. Christine Gomez states “At the thematic level, Atwood‟s novels examine themes related to the politics of gender such as the enforced alienation of women under patriarchy, the patriarchal attempt to annihilate the selfhood of women, the gradual carving out of female space by women through various strategies and women quest for identity, self-definition and autonomy….” (1994:74). Atwood links the subjugation of woman by patriarchal structure with wealthy American culture of Canada, and she marks the attention of Canadian ecology and
The power struggle between the two main parties causes conflict within governments and between governments and their people when the people are not properly represented, and trifectas can cause bills that represents a minority of the overall population to quickly become law and legislations, distancing themselves from the people that they are supposed to govern. Minorities, such as women and people of color, are underrepresented under a two-party system, and third and independent parties rarely get elected seats. In the end, America would benefit from a new system that would create more options and provide better representation than the current two-party system that is in place. As J.T. Young
For example, using these single narratives of minority groups, especially in the aspect of economic success, leads to a double consciousness, causing minorities to view themselves in the eyes of the majority group rather than their own viewpoints as a minority group member (DuBois 1899). I would say, “this double consciousness resulting from your single perspective leads to members of a minority group feeling as though they cannot create a true identity for themselves in a society that views them very differently from how they view themselves, which leaves a very harmful mark. Although you used a single perspective which detrimentally leads to double consciousness, there is a way to find a solution for this damage. This solution can be found in redemption, which is a healing process found through apology and action by the perpetrator (LaDuke 2011). In this situation, you will carry the guilt of causing harm to and creating identities for people of a minority group highlighted in the statements and actions you have demonstrated tonight.
Another study was done in India that looked at the causes of gender inequality within the country attributes this mentality of the superiority of men stems directly from the lack of education amongst women. The article gives two explanations as to why women do not participate in the labor market as much as men do which is due to: “The first explanation attributes the gap to labor market discrimination: if employers value women’s education less than that of men’s education, then economic incentives to educate girls are lower (Kingdon 1998). The second explanation relates to kinship norms in India, which often dictate that a daughter will leave the household after marriage” (Rammohan and Patrick 2018:143). Both journal articles simply emphasize the culture’s distaste for women in education and how societal expectations make it a challenge for women to get an education. The negative connotation about women being educated rather than focusing on marriage has caused many to grow up believing that education was unimportant and that
While, at times, detention of immigrants may be justified, the seeming inability to challenge being detained and the variation in decisions according to where you are detained is troubling (End Immigration Detention Network, 2014, p.4). However, I am somewhat sceptical of the exact degree of and reason for the variation that they assert. While, certainly, variations in decision making may be due to personal biases of those reviewing a case, there may be substantial differences between the types of people detained across the country and the reasons for their detention. As such, I think more information is necessary before detention review can completely be regarded as “at the whims of an appointed board member” (End Immigration Detention Network, 2014,
Notably so, forceful government initiative in maintaining diversity among schools of higher education would lead to the mandating of a specific quota for a diverse student body, therein increasing biased admissions disregarding academic skill to satisfy requirements. Such a conception would only serve to hinder the very individuals that the government is attempting to help, as is explained in Richard H. Sander’s study, wherein affirmative action and its implications on black law students were observed. It was revealed that individuals become increasingly susceptible to “drop[ping] out and fail[ing]” due to such persons being “in over their heads academically” (Source B). Unprepared students lacking the necessary skills are admitted and overwhelmed,
In other words, Republicans are claiming that fraudulent voting is an issue in the electoral process and having to provide further identification such as a photo ID is a solution. “Democrats say the changes have little to do with fraud prevention and more to do with placing obstacles in the way of possible Democratic voters, including young people and minorities” (Lizette A1). In other words, Democrats do not see this is a real issue because there is “scant evidence of voter-impersonation fraud” (Lizette A1) and say that Republicans are just using this as a better sounding defense in order to accomplish more voter discrimination towards particular groups of
This inequality has caused minorities to lose faith in the American system of democracy. The shortage of political rights has caused a significant partition between majority and minority. Minorities are defined as a group of people who deviate from the social, economical and political majority standards. The division of humans among these differences is diminishing the standards of humanity between
Salvarez: Yes, the general public does not always have the education to be able to elect a suitable candidate for this demanding job. The voting public is also not always interested in what is best, sometimes it is what is aesthetically pleasing or a political facade. Ms. Mejia: Could you explain to our listeners what judicial review is? Mrs. Salvarez: Of course, the quickest way to summarize judicial review is having the power to review and cancel laws if they are determined unconstitutional, it also holds the power to undo public policy. Ms. Mejia: Do you have an example from a recent case that you could provide?
Autumn, I like that you brought up the research and how it failed to acknowledge other races and cultures. I felt that the research was flawed as it had left out the intersectionalities of the various cultures and races that help make up our society. I found this research to perpetuate the metanarratives and moral panic within society that emphasizes what attractive and fit means. In leaving out the other cultures and racial groups within our society there are also marginalized identities that are excluded from this conversation. As the reading, What Is Intersectionality?
