It is true that women back then on television were stereotyped as housewives and displayed as mindless and inferior to their male counterparts. However, if feminists allow this male stereotyping to happen, then it goes against their core belief in their cause. This is irritating to many men alike, in which the media allows themselves to be ridiculed and humorized on a regular
His reference to her strong opinions as “Garbo routine’ clearly suggests that he does not respect her thoughts and modern world views. All of the above strongly confirms how he sees the female gender as inferior to men and how he uses his gender to dictate what he wants from her. He displays annoyance towards her modern views and also finds it funny that she wishes to become a doctor once again highlighting the stereotypes men has towards women. This clearly suggests that the play was written at a time when women are not very driven into bettering themselves because they are conditioned to thinking that they have no other place in male dominated society other than being wives, home-makers and mothers. All these statements
Comparison of Why I Want a Wife and Sex, Lies, and Conversation Since we are kids, there has been a battle between men and women. The conflict is also of misunderstanding reactions of each one to problems with authority, financial problems, communication, etc. Women blame men for not wanting the relationship to work, while men defend themselves, saying that women are too emotional. These happen because men and women look for different behavior from the other one. Anyhow, is important to know that the missing piece of a relationship is communication, and understand that men and women are different.
This discrimination against sex is called sexist and America itself has embodied the definition of sexism through the unrealistic idea of women on TV, the pay gap, and the fact that there are very few women involved with politics. There is no voice for women being heard in these aspects and there must be a voice for women. As being a feminist, I find that it is completely sad that America is still holding up those stereotypes and is not finding ways to develop better quality between men and women, along with establishing a greater body of support for men and women. The media needs to change its stereotypical and sexist views of women to develop equality between the two and to see women not as the sex symbol but as the one who is powerful. That is something that seems to be missing in media.
At the same time, women think that men do not go shopping as it is most common that women go shopping. These accusations are also known as gender stereotypes where certain activities are done by a certain gender only. Most of the time, such labels construct the development of unfair and unequal treatment for either one of the genders. In some cases, religion also contribute to the rise of gender inequality. Many women especially in a Muslim country suffer gender discrimination as many believe that women are not compatible to become the leader of the country and think that men are more capable to take up the responsibility to become a leader.
Just because we are taught jobs have a set gender. That if a woman actually enjoys something only boys are supposed to like, then they are “fake” and “doing it for attention.” For women who actually achieve what they want in life, they are accused of “being selfish” Wow, I wonder who she slept with? Does she even love her family? She must be a secretary for the boss.While she could be the co- owner of the company, she is still looked down on, like she hasn’t earned it. Women are expected to make life choices such as choosing the right partner, get married or not, have children or not.
Gender is something people learn, that is, it is culturally constructed. For many people, gender seems natural because we start learning how to be women or men from the moment we are born. The stereotypes shown in these advertisements connect with the inequalities seen in adult life. Advertising potentially has the ability to shape the way children view careers and what an acceptable job might look like for a boy versus a girl. Therefore, when boys and girls are alienated from playing with certain toys as a young age, they are taught to alienate those who do not fit this gender binary, leading to a lack of awareness, understanding, and tolerance.
It did not work that way for the women. Women were not given the luxury of feeling comfortable saying what they wished without getting scolded by their husbands. Ma somewhat followed that set role, but she also got frustrated sometimes and could not help but say what she really felt. Other than the men and women being given certain roles, everyone everywhere solely wished for happiness. The Grapes of Wrath portrays how men and women handle difficult situations differently.
Although, that might be the case there is not an excuse to justify these horrible acts. This is something parent should teach their children this isn’t a thing that should be accepted and should respect each other’s boundaries. There are some cases where men were victims of sexual assault but its similar to sexual assault or sexual harassment in the workplace they have too much pride to come forward to say they have been sexually assaulted. They are in fear that they’ll be made fun of and lose their manhood which isn’t true at all. In conclusion, there are differences between men and women when it comes to sexual assault/sexual harassment.
Most men are disturbed by hatred and fear of women, by male violence against women, even the men who perpetuate this violence. But they fear letting go of the benefits. They were not certain about what will happen to the world they know most intimately if patriarchy changes. So they find it easier to passively support male domination ' ' ( Hooks xiii) The previous quotation reflects many characteristics of many men characters in ' ' The Color Purple ' '. Alphanso, Celie 's stepfather, is a person who sees women as servants their jobs is to take care of his home and for sex.
