The film "Dadi 's family" is about a family in Northern India. In the movie, we are introduced to a family that consists of a big extended family living in one household. This film explores the idea of family and the roles that women play in Dadi’s household. In the film, we are introduced to six roles that are performed in the day to day household. The six roles exposed in this film are the roles of women as a daughter, mothers, mothers-in-laws, daughters-in-laws, sister-in-laws, and sisters. “Dadi 's Family” demonstrates how women in Dadi 's household fight to secure their status around the idea of the dominant patriarchal mentality which insists that females are the inferior caste. The dedication to the production of the film consists of following the life of Dadi and her daughters-in-law showing the viewers the struggles they encounter trying to maintain the traditional ways of living the gender roles that have been developed for generations. In Dadi 's Family, it is clear to see that there is a different role play that women and men play which demonstrates inequality between the different dynamics of gender and power.
The Maasai culture and the culture of most Americans are similar and different in a variety of ways. One way that America is like the Maasai is that, overall women, in America still tend to do housework while the men are expected to work and provide for the family. Although these roles are less enforced and defined in America, they still exist. Also, both cultures have partiarchial societies. Again, although this type of society is not as strict in America, it is still there. Secondly, throughout pubic schooling American children are kind of placed in age sets which go through a couple age grades together, specifically graduation. Although these age sets are not long-lasting like those within the Maasai culture, for the first eighteen years of an Americans life most people are placed in groups like age sets. Third, Americans also decorate their bodies in ways similar to the people of the Aaasai culture. Americans pierce their ears and other parts of their bodies, get tattoos, wear jewelry, etc. The Maasia also tend to pierce their ears, elongate their ear lobs, tattoo their bodies, and wear jewelery.
The first attempt and success to climb Mt. Everest occured in 1953. Since then, almost 4,000 people have been able to scale the mountain, but over 230 people have not been able to climb it successfully. There is a chance of accident or death when climbing this mountain or any dangerous activity. All people should should have the right to rescue services even if they knowingly put themselves at risk because there is always a chance of an accident happening, rangers are there to save people in danger, and there are rescue vehicles being produced to be used in case of an emergency.
For decades, immigration has been a problem for the United States. Due to the people traveling from their native lands to the United States seeking a better life for themselves, and more primarily for the family that has come with them. Immigration is the action of settling into a country of which one is not native. Despite the many legal immigrants not every immigrant enters the country with legal documents and most of these illegal immigrants are poor and uneducated. Some undocumented immigrants commit crimes such as drug smuggling, or terrorism. Our policies on illegal immigration can diminish the problem by enforcing immigration laws, revoking birthright autonomy, and demanding proof of citizenship when applying for social services. Immigration has become a major problem in this country and needs to be restricted.
“77% of Anti-Abortion Leaders are men, 100% of them will never be pregnant” (Barbara Kruger). Whether to continue or end a pregnancy, has been a long debated topic, extending long after the Roe v. Wade case that went all the way to the Supreme court (ProCon). Abortion is defined as the intentional termination of a pregnancy, frequently performed during the first 28 weeks of pregnancy (Oxford University Press). Each year, over one million women in America chose to have an abortion (WebMD). What would happen if that right to choose was taken away?

Even though arranged marriages are depicted as an incompetent commodity there are benefits of the marriage for both the husband as well as the wife and that is why there are still arranged marriages today.

What modern feminists refuse to admit is that feminism is only one side of a two-sided coin of inequality. A “movement” that advocates for the rights of one gender over another is sexist and unequal by nature. If feminists were striving for equality, then they wouldn’t be FEMinists. Being feminist, simply put, means that you want women to not only be equal to, but greater than men.. Thus, I believe that feminism is a poorly made masquerade to cover women’s desire to control men.
“Illegal immigration continues to be a major problem in the United States. We have people wanting to come here legally and we should not be rewarding people who have come here illegally,” said John Barrasso. The United States Government should not allow immigrants into America because they are having negative effects on our country. Some negative effects are citizens competing with illegals for jobs, immigrants expecting favors, and Americans not getting to work hard for their money.
In our advanced 21st century, it is hard to imagine our society as anything short of perfect. After all, we have come a long way from our seafaring ancestors. However, the reality is that despite how we may sometimes avoid seeing it, our society is anything but perfect. A very prevalent issue today is that despite laws being set in place to enforce the equal treatment of men and women, women all over the world today still face poor treatment and discrimination. Because of how deep and long this problem has run, revising discriminatory laws may not abolish discrimination and legislating laws that endorse gender equality may not necessarily create equality. However, without laws that promote and safeguard the laws of women, they remain vulnerable and lack the governmental support and legal standards necessary for equality.
Marriage by definition is “the legal union of a man and a woman as husband and wife.” Americans statistically fail in a marriage, (According to Susan Estrich)“with more than half of all marriages ending in divorce, families are not what they used to be. In modern marriages, one of the partners will get married to the other for the wrong reasons such as financial stability (wealth). (According to Emma Goldman)” Marriage is primarily an economic arrangement, an insurance pact.” This is a common mistake in marriages because you are marrying someone over money not love, and that's a bad way to approach any relationship. Money doesn't buy happiness and getting married to someone just because of the money is a bad thing to do. There are instances
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.
