Males tend to be physically stronger and more aggressive. While females can be both of those things, people still believe that these qualities can give men power. These differences in the genders are the basis for the social expectations. In the wizarding world, power does not come from strength and aggression. It comes from the
We could often see the inscription written by Ge Zhengqi, the husband of Li Yin, on Li Yin’s paintings. Inscription of husbands on wives’ art works indicate the support offered by the husbands, and it assists to the construction of the women artistic personae in providing a favorable condition for their wives to develop. In addition, some of the people also treated the appearance of inscription as one of the considerable features to prove that the art piece is not a counterfeit. In a patriarchy society, giving birth to a daughter is somehow a loss as she would not be able to provide benefits to the family since she is not allowed to work outside. The appearance of the Chinese women artists is one of the cases that changed this concept.
She also retaliated against common misconceptions of female weakness by holding her prestigious military position. Traditional women 's roles involved following the husband and not having an opinion. Women, similar to slaves, were thought of as property and their sole purpose was to tend to domestic work so the men could become the breadwinners. Those ignorant assumptions were oppressive, but proved to be very effective in military combat because few expected them to excel as spies or soldiers. Each woman had a different role in helping their respected side.
Even though she did not win she was able to show that men are not the only ones who carry the power women are just as important politicians. To add on women are not behind the scenes writing the scripts like people would like to believe, these women are dedicating their life to politics. Politicians are just misunderstood because many people are still holding on to the belief that women are still in the same position in which no power is granted to them. However it is obvious that politicians are not only men women also share this
The Kypselli women in the film were degraded and perceived to be bad luck and as such were not allowed to be in areas, for example, wine caves for fear they will spoil the wine or the courtyards where the men smoke and relax. Watching the film it was very apparent the men were superior over the women, they determined the rules in which the women followed and as a result were exploited within the village. The women, perceived to be deceitful and not to be trusted, the men marry the women but only for economic reasons, not for love. Time is rarely spent with their husbands and although they live in the same house they are separated by rooms. Fascinatingly enough, the men are not allowed near the baking/cooking process although they can observe.
Being in a more patriarchal society, it shows that the majority of men didn’t really notice their status over their females since the idea of women wanting power was unthought of until he was told by the older lady. That same older lady didn’t just give the knight that information without any benefit to herself, within the whole scenario the knight still was underneath the control of women. Something that at the time was very unknown and many could claim that it’s the epitome of what women have struggled
Women in the 300 BCE-600 CE time period had few rights, which varied from country to country. They were responsible for household chores, upbringing of the child, and to be faithful to their husband. Failure to do so would result in public humiliation or death.Within the Roman civilization, women played a large role in helping shape their family life, business, religious rituals and even in politics. However, in the Han dynasty of China women were not considered citizens and were viewed as inferior to men. During the time period of the Roman civilization, women were considered inferior to men, but they still had an influence on their family.
For example, when hiring for a job like construction or mechanic the employer is way more likely to chose a male. The employer won’t say it but they are sexest when it comes to jobs. People automatically think this a man’s job and they think that women can’t do it. In this case men and women are treated unequally.
However, others could say that “Feminism” means men should be the more respected sex. It is simply absurd how people chose to use this universal term lightly. Despite these multitudes of definitions, my version is to believe that “Feminism” means that both sexes are to be treated fairly, politically, economically and socially. I stand strongly that women are not the weaker sex but the equal one.
Nieva and Gutek (1981) bring up two explanations for the fact that women miss out on the opportunity of having a mentor. First of all women are perceived as people who lack perseverance and are presumed to have an unreliable career commitment. Many male sponsors assume that women miss the drive to engage in a long-term professional involvement. As sponsors expect that their grooming and support will encourage the protégés to build on the foundation they created (Nieva & Gutek, 1981). Also, women are less aware of the fact that a mentor can open a lot of doors and can be very beneficial to their future career and progress in an organization.
