The natives were afraid of the communism being brought into their culture. Besides, “The rising popularity of Ku Klux Klan”(alpha history), which were secret group of white people who used violence to oppose the revolution to equal right, somewhat influenced many whites. Many factors at that period of time resulted in the prejudice in education and Employment to Jewish Americans.

Her decision is based on the struggles she went through all her high school days. Also, during the second movie she fights with the parliament for her position as a queen knowing that she will not have a king by her side.

ABSTRACT This paper is an analysis of the feministic aspectof Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s Chronicle of a Death Foretold. Feminism is a crusade, which has some aim and dogmas, where a feminist seeks equal political, economic, cultural, personal and social rights for women. The storyhere provides feminists a rich ground in which one can explore the codes of sexual morality that the townspeople of Columbia reluctantly uphold. The portrayal of female characters in the novel shows their submissive nature and how often they have been exploited and forced to go against their free will just for the sake of false family honour and society. It also represents how patriarchy was constituted, constructed and re-invented in Latin American society in the 20th
Although women from all races and countries had to face gender inequality however, women from the Islamic countries have to face the brunt of gender discrimination at most. Khalid Hosseni in his novel, ‘A Thousand Splendid Suns’ depicts the plight of the Afghani women. The novel shows that despite being repressed by the conservative rule of the Talibans and the misogynistic thinking of men, the female characters emerge as strong Afghani women fighting for their rights, children and lives. The novel follows the story of two girls, Maryam and Laila. Maryam is the “Harami” child of a rich businessman Jalil and his former housekeeper Nana.
As Emma Watson, HeForShe Ambassador has said, "fighting for women's rights became synonymous with man-hating." Feminism has been the main force behind major social and political changes. It started out as a campaign to achieve women's rights such as women's suffrage, equal pay for women, equal job opportunities and so on. Thanks to Susan B. Anthony, a hero who played a pivotal role in this movement, who stood up for women’s rights. After all, without her and others who helped, there would be no equality between men and women.
Their claim was that all people are created equal and should not be denied equality of opportunity because of gender. Liberal Feminist focuses their efforts on social change through the construction of legislation and regulation of employment practices Male power and privilege is the basis of social relations. Sexism is the ultimate tool used by men to keep women oppressed. Men control the norms of acceptable sexual behavior, refusing to reproduce is the most effective way to escape the snares and to speak out against all social structures because they are created by men. The feminist attempted to criticize the dominant order.
In such an environment will be institutions are male-driven and the laws are interpreted time, women are the inferior and supporting to men. Liberal Feminists argue that due to the male oriented biased social setup, women are discriminated in all aspects of social life, such as inequitable scales in job markets and with getting women into positions of authority in the professions, government, and cultural institutions. Decisions regarding women’s empowerment and even their political affiliations are made by men. Women are deprived from contesting elections, casting their vote for enjoying their formal and legal entitlements (Lorber, 1997).The philosophy of Liberalism provides a technique for introducing change that may enable women to achieve equality with their male counterparts this is a productive approach in Baloch
Feminism, Misandry, Sexism and Patriarchy The word ‘feminist ‘ to me means a person, not generally a woman, who fights for women and their rights, it means that a person wants equality for both men and women Feminism started out as a movement which helped women gain rights. It was a social, political movement and it helped women win the right to vote, and so it helped decrease the wage gap at work, it helped women take maternity leave from work. Feminism helped women gain rights to work as judges, it inspired popular figures to speak about it, it helped women fight against the crimes and abuse etc. It was empowering and liberating when it made women realize that only they could control their lives, what they chose to work as, what they chose to wear.

Feminism, however, can be defined as: “a concern with action, political or personal, the struggle for equality; valuing the individual, respect for the individual; and having an awareness or consciousness of oppression which may be experienced by women directly or men vicariously through women’s experiences” (Allan, 1993). According to the Stanford Encyclopaedia of Philosophy, the true goal of feminism is not for women to have more power than men, but to eliminate sexism and for society to express equality for everyone (Haslanger & Tuana, 2004). Earlier, feminism and nursing were not interrelated; however, the integration of the ideals of feminism into nursing could change the
