The representation of stars could be presented in the poem to mention her lack of interest, lack of knowledge, and mainly the lack of proficient skills in science. In addition, Plath feels she is a disappointing creation to culture and systems that values the scientific ability of its native people; this can be linked back to when she criticized the American Education system. This would come forth because of not living to the ideal stereotypical ideal woman of the 1950’s, because of Plath’s differences, she sees herself a disappointment towards her family and friends. Though it’s questionable whether Plath intended to subject herself to the envisioned or real pressures, which women of today could easily relate to, the pressure of societal expectations, presentation pressure, practically everyday pressure of being an ‘ideal woman’. The first verse “The hill steps into whiteness”, this could anticipates the felling of worthlessness through the rest of the stanza, which contributes a glimpse to the reader into Plath’s imaginative world.
Because Frado is of mixed race, she experiences an even worse sort of degradation than she would have if both of her parents had been black, a situation which leads to her position as a societal outcast. For example, Mrs. Bellmont’s hatred for Frado and the strength of her cruelty progressively increase throughout the story in part because Frado “was not many shades darker than Mary now,” suggesting that Mrs. Bellmont fears the power that black people could gain if they were treated as equals to whites in the North (Wilson 39). For example, Mrs. Bellmont forbids Frado from sheltering her skin from the sun in an attempt to make Frado darker. She fears that her peers will notice that Frado is not much darker than Mary: “what a calamity it would be to ever hear that contrast spoken of.... Mrs. Bellmont was determined the sun should have full power to darken the shade which nature had first bestowed on her as best fitting” (Wilson 39). Although Mrs. Bellmont has already alienated Frado as a result of her skin color, she attempts to further remove Frado by attempting to expel Frado from the liminal space she occupies as a mulatto by making her darker skinned.
The book contains many social issues. One of the issues is a racial issue in which Society 's outlook differently towards unmarried mothers of that time. They were disapproved of and would sometimes regarded as social outcasts. Miss Emily Brent 's housekeeper Beatrice Taylor got pregnant and at that point killed herself. Despite the fact, rather than any sensitivity or Christian forgiveness, she is absolutely unaffected by her death which she could have prevented ‘Her own action-her own sin-that was what drove her to it…none of this would have happened’.
These laws were to prohibit and limit a women’s rights due to the fact they are married to their spouse; an example of these laws was “denied... the facilities for obtaining a through education” (149) to clarify this quotation women weren’t allowed to receive an education due to being married. In the end she claims that the removal is necessary due to its unjust laws that oppresses women. She continues to claim that women should be treated equally just as American citizens; should be free and equal. To compare; both writers express their concerns and thoughts in their own writings but addresses towards different issues. In addition, they both use Pathos and Logos to convey
It is striking that complications from unsafe abortion are estimated to result in 13 per cent of maternal deaths worldwide.” The ban of abortion can put many women at risk. The suppression of these services is extremely unfair, and in many ways diminishing the rights of women. Women have been treated as inferior for many generations, with society pushing aside their ideas, allowing them to only act a certain “ladylike” way, and denying them certain, yet important rights. Oscar Wilde, a famous play writer once said “Women are meant to be loved, not to be understood.” Women want to be understood,
One mistake can be caught on camera by those who are distrustful of nurses. Overall, Fowler article was extremely unsuccessful at pusadering her audience to take action and become a part of policy making in healthcare because of her structural errors and usage of irrelevant sources in a failed attempt to build credibility with her audience. Fowler’s structural weaknesses in her organization and thesis statement was not persuasive, thus leaving her readers confused. Fowler first begins her article with background information about her topic, stating the history of Nursing. She outlines extensive details about the founding of the code of ethics for three paragraphs, which was not necessary for her argument.
Dr.Flint threatened to kill Jacobs if she tells anybody, especially her grandmother. Jacobs did all she could to avoid Dr.Flint, because of this she also faced psychological effects from the harassment. From the very beginning it is noticed that Jacobs was raised to be a lady and to be pure and Jacobs held on to that purity, nevertheless finally she had to let that go in order to escape Dr.Flint. Jacobs got pregnant by a white man to whom she had no feelings of love for. She saw it as something that had to be done, since she knew that Dr.Flint would lose interest in her, and that he would send her away.
Canadian health services delivery has not been sufficient in serving Aboriginal women. Practices and policies of the system has continue to marginalize many aboriginal women in the health care structure (indigenous women, 2005), this is structural violence. “Determinant of health such as gender, cultural heritage, aboriginal status is influenced by the quality and quantity of a variety of resources that a society makes available to its members” (Donna, Jessie, Susan, Buffy, 2008). Many Aboriginal women have low self-esteem (Indigenous politics, 2005), these “internal struggles” have led to many health and social related problems such as alcohol and drug abuse (YWCA Canada). In 2001 the life expectancy was 77 years for Aboriginal women (YWCA
Moreover, she refuses to have a physical relationship with him, even in her diary. She cannot, even by imagination, defy the social restrains that are forced over women during that age. In fact, Marion 's diary writing proves that she is confined in the gender role that is previously set to her by the dominating patriarchal
But during this time, women could not benefit from law because of the grounds of divorce had double standards between men and women. The divorce law was inclined to protect men’s right to divorce, it was hard for women to divorce. The Abortion Act was introduced in the UK, for women who were up to 24 weeks pregnant. However the abortion had to been done for the correct reasons such as it would be either be harmful to the woman’s mental or physical
An author by the name of Gloria Jahoda describes how an Indian population dropped and how the responsible ones for this action due to the whites. Johoda make all Indians to be an image of defenseless as she states in her readings. I believe that she felt that excuses for Indians because they were not fighting for what was rightfully theirs. Indians did not know how to stand up for themselves, and instead let the whites bully them. Unfortunately citizenship was granted with and exception to the Choctaws not living their everyday life style and due to this fact under citizenship, the tribal government was abolished.
Not only did the authorities silence these issues, but when these women were molested, the women themselves kept quiet, as it was a personal issue, and they feared they would be shunned, rather than the molester themselves. Rape amongst the greater Aboriginal population became so frequent, that almost every Indigenous girl would be raped at least once in their life. The crime rate against female Aboriginals was so high that no longer were these sins being shunned and dealt with properly, but overlooked. The Government, in the meantime, showed lack of responsibility in the desperate times of need. While the
Colonization lead to the separation of the sexes and the belief that man is superior to woman. Native American women were portrayed in popular media such as Westerns as inhuman, which sent a negative message about Native American women and all women. This excerpt describes the way that women were described, “rarely speaking or showing any emotion, these women were often depicted as nearer to animals than human beings, and their dehumanization was compounded by their depiction as beasts of burden or slaves to their owners- their husbands” (Anderson and Young 165). The colonization of Native Americans has had a lasting effect on the women and men, however the women seem to be underrepresented. “As a result of colonial policies, Indigenous women are overrepresented in recent statistical data on issues such as domestic violence, imprisonment, suicide and general poor health” (Anderson and Young 173).
