In the article Gender Roles and the American academe, is about the intersection between the structure of the American academic environment and women’s blended identities as student mothers. It focuses on women that spend a good amount of time, energy, and money into raising their children. Being a mother is a natural goal in a women’s life, and women have the qualities to be the caregivers as well. Both words caregiver and mother represent what they are in a child’s life. It is an identity fulfilled by a female identity. Once a woman is a mother, she is bound to the child and puts the needs of her child before her own. The cultural aspects about motherhood affects the women’s status with the paid labor force. This is the commitment of work and family that women experience in the world through different experiences.
Simone de Beauvoir relates back to this saying that only women who is well balanced, healthy and aware of her responsibilities is capable of being a “good” mother. The nature around being a woman can never dictate a moral choice preconception. This means that the maternity of a woman is enough in most cases to crown a woman’s life. The child is sure to be happy being in the mother’s arms. Basically, what Simone de Beauvoir is trying to tell us is that being a mother and a woman influences us. A woman is a housekeeper, wife, mother, unique and discriminated. “One is not born a woman, one becomes a woman” means that being a woman is an act, not a state. Women make

Gender Equality is a big issue throughout the world, but what exactly is it? Well to answer that, it is the view that everyone should receive equal treatment and not be discriminated against based on gender. Today, most women are getting treated differently compared to men. Whether it is based on pay gap, power, or strength the problem comes up. Men think they are stronger and better than women and this upsets women because it makes them feel like they don’t have a place in this world. This is where feminism comes into place. I chose this topic because I can relate to it more than the racial option, although now it could be about the same.
A woman has many decisions and sacrifices to make when balancing work and family. Ann-Marie Slaughter is the author of “Why Women Still Can’t Have It All” where she explains what it is like to hold a higher ranking position and have children at home. She begins by building her credibility with personal facts and sources, citing other women in younger and older generations. Slaughter fills her essay with high emotion to empower women to be able to have a higher profession without giving up the time with the ones you love. She describes what it is like to lead her business life, and struggle to guide her children, when she doesn’t even have time for herself.
Suffragist, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, in her speech, "The destructive Male," argues for a new amendment concerning women's rights. Stanton's purpose is to not only rally the women who have suffered unfair treatment because of the existing patriarchy, but to ultimately construct these ideas into the minds of congressmen. She adopts a cloying tone to furthermore emphasize her ideas to ultimately change the course of rights for women.
In pre-ap english, I interviewed Jacquelyn who is a freshman at Macarthur High School in Lawton, Oklahoma. In our society, we are often subjected to gender roles. Gender roles is the act of assigning certain emotions or behaviors to men or woman. In response to finding out what gender roles actually are, Jacquelyn does not agree with the idea of them and states that people should “be able to do what they want.” Gender roles often prevent us from being the person we want to be. For example, if a guy were to wear makeup there are people who would judge him harshly and possibly even outcast him, simply because they believe women are the only ones who can wear makeup. Same thing goes for women, like if a girl wanted to play football many would
“Guys vs. Men” presents the idea that the term Man gives more bad qualities in males, unlike the term “Guy”, which, lets guys be free to indulge in stereotypical characteristic. A man is more mature responsible, and a sense of control, who knows when to be serious and show respect. A guy may have less responsibilities, more fun loving, a bit insensitive and is more relaxed. The distinguishing "guy characteristics” that Barry introduces to us is guys like neat stuff, guys like a really pointless challenge, and guys do not have a rigid and well defined moral code. Barry uses these characteristic to organize his entire essay by giving his audience examples of what the topic means and he doesn’t go off track about the topic. in the end I thought
A lot can be learned about rhetoric by looking at these two articles: “5 Charts That Show Sexism Is Still Alive and Well in Gaming” and “The Integrity of Women and Gender Studies”. One portrays the gaming community as sexist and underrepresenting women (Kleeman) while the other condemns modern feminism for treating women as victims and “vilifying” men (Frohlich). The first uses many logical arguments that are used to bring emotion to the reader, and make them feel like certain things are ethically wrong (Kleeman). The second uses a slightly different technique, since it is explicitly an opinion piece (Frohlich). It leads the author to be trusted by the reader, and then presents the author’s opinions that are backed by logical arguments (Frohlich). It also causes the reader to experience emotional and ethical feelings (Frohlich).
Stop the Oppression of Women is a visual ad created by the ISHR, the International Society for Human Rights. The ISHR is a non-governmental, non-profit organisation that focuses on trying to improve the quality of human rights across the world. This visual focuses on the oppression of women in Islamic countries where hijab, the traditional veil that Islamic women are required to wear. There are a few main points of rhetoric to analyze from this advertisement from the ISHR, including the ethos, logos, and pathos of the visual.
However, in this process there are other things that come into place which tend to affect people at both side. On the one hand, many women find themselves trying to balance between having a career and having a family, and in many cases, women find themselves with the obligation of sacrificing their own personal goal (having a family or spending time with their love one) and happiness in order to prove that as men, women also can do it all. Women have been fighting to eliminate the gap and gender discrimination; although, they have make a great progress of closing or over-passing the gap in some educational and professional field, they are still a long way to go. On the other hand, This process has not been easy for men, not only the gap on gender is closing, but also men are founding themselves in a situation that did not exist 50 or 60 years ago, forcing to share the responsibility at home to the point that “men are being judged as fathers now in a way that I think they never have been before” (Dorment, 2015, p.
Throughout this paper I will be discussing the role of women in the American society. I will reference the importance of gender and gender inequality. The definition of gender aims to clarify for of all the historical framework of the topic, the role of women in the American society. The paper will lead from the role women were given around World War II and then transition into the role women can now choose in the American society today. Addition to the role of women I will also discuss the differences of how the genders are treated in the same places, for example work place. Men and women are culturally molded when referring to gender in the American society. The gender roles play a lead part into how the model family, education, and liberty are. The reason I chose to write about this topic is due to my strong belief that although I don’t agree with the characteristics society gave to gender, I do believe in gender equality.
In the 1960s to 1970s, a feminist movement began and sparked a change in attitudes towards women in familial roles and pushed against gender inequality. This movement’s effects trickled down to the opinions and actions of people in the later 1970s to mid-1980s. The period saw a decline in the backing of the traditional family wife role for women and greater acceptance for women finding employment (Mason, K.O., Lu, Y., 1988). However, the change also encountered backlash, with the growth of employed mothers came concerns of the negative effects on the children and their relationship with the mother (Mason, K.O., Lu, Y., 1988). This triggered an inconsistent time for family structure. The nineties saw
Themes like adolescent changes and pregnancy, labour and child-birth, lactation and nurturing, caring and child-rearing, are recurrent themes related to the biological aspects of motherhood, in the poems written by women. This phase of maternity and the changes that accompany it, whether biological, psychological or socio-cultural, have been depicted from a variety of perspectives by women writers. Eunice De’Souza in her poem, “Catholic Mother”(1, see the appendix for full poem) depicts in a nutshell the issues that politicise motherhood. De’Souza, through the use of brief and cryptic sentences, depicts the predicament of a woman as mother.
