Not only are the dominations of women and nature both patriarchally justified through the logic of domination, but the historical and social realistic conceptions of gender and nature are also both socially fabricated.
M2 - Use different sociological perspectives to discuss patterns and trends of health and illness in two different social groups
According to Durkheim, Social fact or social phenomenon are the main subject matter of sociology. He said in one of his pieces that social fact must be studied distinct from the biological and psychological phenomenon. Social order is the trend of behavior being used to exercise power over another person. It has become rules and regulations that have been set up by some authorities to be obeyed by another group of people who are being undermined in a society, it is a situation that oppressed people and limits them from their liberties. When people go through these situations they cannot function the way they are supposed to function because they are limited by their freedom. These social orders are not only laws but rather certain norms created by the authority to put a whole race into a situation where they are very far from freedom of speech, movement, and knowledge. African Americans are an example of a race that has been through discrimination at workplaces, schools, community etc. They are one race which has been a label or put in a class where the situation will never permit you to climb the ladder of success. Although you might have all the certification, qualification, the best schools, etc. but the fact that you came from the poor class or the lower class, it becomes very difficult for the Caucasian people to give you the opportunity you deserve, because of this, the citizens of American have been grouped into different classes which are upper, middle, working,
The two publications that best contextualize gender are the Lowell Offering and the Godey’s Lady Book periodicals as the articles found in both magazines depict traditional gender roles for males and females. For the Lowell Offering, this is best seen in the article entitled, “Woman’s Proper Sphere”, which focuses on the thoughts associated with oppression like, “Is it ambitious wish to shine as man’s equal, in the same scenes in which he mingles” or “Does she wish for a more extensive influence, than that which emanates from a woman’s home?” Yet these progressive questions are met with answers like “How necessary, then, that she should understand these pursuits (of men), that she may truly sympathize with and encourage those, with whom she may be associated. In this way…her influence must and

Able Camacho ID# 100357680 Section 1 Fall 2012 How would you describe your inner mind? crazy? genius? They say that both are two sides of the same side. Through my experiences, I shape the world around me, developing a unique perspective from my worldview. When it comes to how I perceive reality I just summarize it in these six concepts: culture, meaning, self, self-fulfilling prophecy, and scripts, and self-serving bias. My culture defines me down to my very genetic core. It explains why I drive the way I do, how I talk, what is socially acceptable, why I react to things the way I do , why I attend LIU, etc.

Edwidge Danticat’s The Farming of Bones and Julia Alvarez’s In the Time of Butterflies We have all heard the saying, “it’s a man’s world”. It appears that our world is governed according to a man’s perspective and thoughts as to how the world should be run, and women gracefully bow down to this perspective and internalize those male supremacist notions of patriarchal dominance. Even with this seemingly innate belief that men have, it is still apparent at times that there is another view that is often glossed over and ignored in the pursuit of extreme power and superiority. In Edwidge Danticat’s The Farming of Bones and Julia Alvarez’s In the Time of Butterflies, we are able to dissect society through the eyes of women who have had
1. Many people face and are prosecuted with life in prison and are granted no parole. This is a serious punishment that is partnered with equally distressful actions caused by a person or group of people. In Colorado, it is evident that this punishment was dealt out to many minors in a time of panic. According to the video, youth violence was on the rise and such violence was threatening the communities. Personally, I see no reason for a juvenile defendant to receive a drastic punishment like life in prison without parole; however, I do believe that adults (25 years or older) who committed heinous should receive such punishment.

Language: In On the Equality of the Sexes, there are a few phrases that seem to show some importance. “There is something new under the sun” is italicized in the text. She is saying that there is going to be some change coming soon with women’s education. She also uses the word superior, or superiority, quite a bit in the text. She questions whether or not mental superiority between sexes actually exists. She also talks about imagination a lot. She makes the point that society constricts how women use their imaginations. The way she uses domestication in the text is in a negative way. She uses the phrase “fertile brain of a female” and by doing this she is trying to show that females’ brains are productive and capable of becoming so much

In the article, “Nature’ and Environmental Justice” Mei Mei Evans demonstrates how the history that Western Europeans created had a drawback that created stereotypes that follow different cultures. The perceptions that were created characterizes what is “natural,” “wild,” or domestication became products of culture (Evans 182). Many of the cultures descriptions revolve upon white heterosexual men, they are able to manipulate the ideals of what is “natural” and enforce it in society because of their ancestors. People who attempt to be apart of their nature are rejected if they are not from their social identify. The people are left with not having access, “right to clean, uncontaminated environments in which to live and work” (Evans 183). This foreclosure creates tensions to not only heterosexuals of color, but for homosexuals
As a Professor of Comparative Literature and Program of Critical Theory, Judith Butler received her Ph.D. in Philosophy from Yale in 1984 and has received nine honorary degrees since then. Her work has an air of postmodern thought, focusing not on whether cultural practices are correct or not but goes in depth on the use language and its effect on how “gender” limits or even hinders women and those that don’t identify as either. In the 1990’s when Butler wrote this book during a time of great change in the portrayal of the female role. Women started having more empowered roles, no longer simply
Ecological feminists (Gaard, Heller) argue that culture defines the connection of women and nature. Men are as much part of nature as women are. However, the patriarchal culture identifies women with body, sex, irrationality, passivity, and earth. It is decided that women are closer to nature. Men identify with spirit, mind, action, and power; they are rational, stable, reliable, and intelligent.
