It has become unsafe for any women to walk down the busiest streets of Egypt. Frustration and violence are the result of sexual desire being kept underground by a controlling society that shows little regard for women’s rights. Until this rout is addressed, women will continue to see their freedoms and rights shattered. Egyptian women need a double revolution, one against the corrupted government of Egypt, and another against the wrong misinterpretation of culture and religion that ruins women’s lives. The poor representation pf women leads to the absence of women’s issues from the priorities of the local council, and increases the poor services provided to them.
In Arthur Miller’s, The Crucible, passions turned into problems. Witchcraft in Salem Massachusetts became a remembered event since 1692. Three girls were said to have interactions with the devil. When they were confronted about it they denied every interaction the people who were convicted they would say they weren’t a witch and would bring someone else’s name into the equation. Those who would admit to being a witch would go to jail, but for those who denied having interaction with the devil would have been trialed and hung, so really, anyway you put it it’s a lose-lose situation.
The outcome also represents the misogyny of Pakistan 's judicial system as it is impulsively unsympathetic to women. Moreover, a girl named Maria committed suicide after being ordered by the Panchayat to be raped in revenge for her father’s attempt to rape a minor. These cases unfold that under the cloak of justice and local customs, women, and children are treated as a tool of compensation. This form of structural violence has got passive acceptance among marginalized groups. However, these cases resulted in huge outcry by the women and human right activists resulting in parliament passing
In contras, each year in Indonesia, millions of women become pregnant unintentionally, and many choose to end their pregnancies, despite the fact that abortion is generally illegal. Abortion due to unwanted pregnancy is considered the best solution. Whereas it is the same as solving the problem with a new problem. Like many pregnant women by “accident” in many developing countries where abortion is stigmatized and highly restricted, Indonesian women often seek abortion with harm procedures performed by untrained providers (for example; dukun). Some women already know the negative impact of having an abortion but most women tend to ignore it.
hospitals during the 1960s and 1970s when many women, primarily Latina women were forced into sterilization in attempts of a population control mechanism. The film describes the negative affects these women faced from guilt and the rejection of their families and husbands. Although ten women who were affected from this forced sterilization filed a lawsuit to the supreme court, they lost the case due to a cultural difference that was unforeseen by doctors. Even though the ruling was clearly based off racial privilege, the awareness of the unspoken political agenda by systemic racism and was able to shed light into furthering women autonomy during medical visits. In the same way, the article mentioned earlier by Dorothy Roberts serves as a reinforcement of systematic discrimination done through larger institutions to retain ethnic oppression by regulating population
The Roe v. Wade case decision has been very controversial even today when it comes to abortion. This case argued that abortion should be legal and that women should have the right to decide such important decision. Roe v. Wade divided the nation during the 1970s like no other case has before. In the 1970's every state had different laws and regulations in regards to abortion but most states banned abortion unless the health of the mother could be at risk if she was to give birth (McBride). There were a few states were abortions were legal but not too many women could afford to travel and have the procedure there so underground abortion clinics began to appear in states were abortion was illegal and the people performing these procedures were
Haiti’s political system in 1969 was very dark. They did not believe in women’s rights and many children and babies were dying there like in chapter five when Marie finds a dead body and talks about her miscarriages to it. Or in chapter four where a prostitute has sex with other men next to her sons bed at night. I think this shaped Danticat’s life by making her angry. She becomes a writer even though she knows that female writers can be killed and she writes about all these tragedies and deaths of people.
Sadly, this is not the case especially for women. The conditions for modern day Afghan women is still very terrible. A majority of women experience some kind of violence in their lives be it by their own husbands or someone close by to them. According to Joya Malalai, there are still many women who are forced into marriage, resort to prostitution in order to survive since it is still they are still not allowed to work, and they hold the highest rate for depression. Girls are not safe to go to school causing many girls from the villages would learn their lessons from sitting in the dirt for it is too dangerous.
In long-term relationships, it is hard for a couple to separate, even when the male in the relationship is being abusive towards his partner being the female because the female is simply scared of the consequences, also, in the journal ‘Female domestic violence victims ' experiences of hospital care’ it states that “Several women chose not to disclose the domestic violence because their partner was present whilst being questioned by the health care professional” Gasser, H. I. (2008). Female domestic violence victims ' experiences of hospital care--a literature review. P295., In my opinion, I don’t think any partner should be in the same room as the abused individual because there could be a lot of missing information if the suspect is present during the questioning about the assault. While the victim being, the female is being questioned about the assault she could possibly be scared mentally while the health care professional is asking her questions because the person who abused her is watching her at the same time, I believe that when the abused individual is in the room as the health care professional and the abuser is not, the victim of the domestic violence can tell the truth about what really happened and justice could be served, there were a lot of cases where the spouse simply didn’t say anything because they were scared of the consequences because for one if the abuser finds out most likely they will abuse the victim even
Today, things just aren't the same. When I hear another article about a woman who says she is afraid to walk out the door every day because she is afraid of rapists, I laugh. Look, everyone knows what rape is and it does happen. You can’t say that everyone is afraid to walk out the door because of things like shootings, terrorism, and kidnapping. But seriously, why is the media telling us the women are so discriminated?
Some people opposed to abortion say it gives a means of getting out of another issue. Megan Clancy an abortion oppose has written “There are women who are raped and become pregnant; the problem is that they were raped, not that they are pregnant. There are women who are starving who become pregnant; the problem is that they are starving, not that they are pregnant. There are women in abusive relationships who become pregnant; the problem is that they are in abusive relationships, not that they are pregnant.” A number of people are against abortion as it can be problematic for the women in the future while others are opposed as they say it will not ‘free women’ (BBC,
