Equality is not just a word; however, it means too much when it comes to social life. Both men and women should work hard together in order to achieve high goals in work place and also at their homes. In fact, we both needs some motivation either from a friend or parents to do a change in our life. Woman should not feel that they are unnecessary or out of place, because both men and women are human beings and they have same abilities and potentials. If we can sometimes change the roles of the genders by giving the man work at home and let the woman run an organization, it would help maintaining a good
Throughout history equality has impacted many people’s lives. There are numerous equality problems that the United States has faced through the years.

A group is a set of people or things that are considered and classified together who frequently interact and mutually influence each other. Whereas each individual of a group differs greatly from one another, each member shares a common goal or expectations. Universities, for example, are groups of students who
Equal Opportunity has been an important facet of our society in America, particularly since Martin Luther King, Jr. gave his well-known speech, “I have a dream,” to our nation on August 28, 1963 (Historybits: Exploring True History). There have been many social programs started in order to make changes in

19). In his article “Band Mentality and Large Group Mentality”, Mikio Ohgushi, outlines the development of the band mentality and the large group mentality, and how they differ from each other. He describes his perceptions on the “older, organic, and non- hierarchical band mentality”, and the “newer, abstract, hierarchical, and impersonal large group mentality” ( Ohgushi, 1998, p.1). He states that in prehistoric hunting tribes the band mentality was useful because the members of the band were close from personal experiences, and shared similar goals. The bands were small, so that the groups could “provide enough food, and still have the protection of numbers” (Ohgushi, 1998, p.1). This mentality disappeared, for the most part, when larger and larger groups of people began to form, and we had to develop “a new way to organize ourselves as a functional group” (Ohgushi, 1998, p. 1). He says that in a large group society “people divert from instinct in order to make us feel at ease in the large group” (Ohgushi, 1998, p.2).

Better relationships (probably from all the face time and fun the people in the activities are having together)
The question that I intend to study is: How do shy people react in a crowd? (do they become aggressive/ assertive as per mob psychology, or shrink as per their personality)? There are various theories regarding the mode of behavior in a crowd. Some, such as Freud, posit that people'
Throughout weeks 2-7, I learnt the theoretical meaning of ‘groupwork’, and grasped a deeper understanding of ‘group-life’. Firstly, I was able to comprehend the importance of groups in a broader perspective than the one I previously had. For instance, Johnson and Johnson (2012, p. 3) state that as humans we
This past October, my legal studies professor informed me of a Women’s Rights presentation occurring in the School of Arts and Sciences building. I felt this was a perfect moment to combine my legal studies and social justice interests with my Core Science class. The presentation consisted of about a 90-minute documentary followed by a roughly 45-minute discussion between 15 students, two professors, and two women who are women’s rights activists. During this discussion, we talked about various issues such as income disparities between men and women, why this discrimination is happening in the workplace, and future of the women’s rights movement.
In McGregor's Theory XY, I learned it is likely that people need structure even if they are motivated. For example, working together as one is important in order to ensure productivity along with new ideas for companies. This is because I feel that a team will create a concept that suits the diverse needs of the company by providing products to a broad customer base. The design of groups is important so that the team will know exactly what to do. However, in working in groups may seem challenging because there are so many different personalities working together as one. Even though this is true, people want to belong to groups in order to be a part of something to avoid being ostracized. From a Theoretical Standpoint, social support from others is critical to psychological and physiological well being. People have evolved as social beings, working for the group secures membership. Therefore, working in groups brings employees together, which enhances new ideas for the company. With that, by letting employees work in groups, it would bring the company much success in the long run.
