The writer urges that women should be given the same kind of treatment and moral standard like men. It is not because women are stronger or better than men but simply because they are also human beings that should be treated like other human being. Just like skin color, gender should not a reason to discriminate someone. I personally agree that women should be treated equally; this is like what is stated in the passage an a priori fact. A sane human being should be able to know think straight that women too are just like others. In some culture, baby girls are killed because they are said to bring shame and disgrace to the family. Logically, how is that possible? Culture and the society should be blamed for such kind of mind set. After all, women are the ones that bear children into this world. Unfortunately, what Anna Julia has been fighting for the past 20 years or so is still a struggle for our society today. Although the discrimination against women is not that big of an issue right now, and although there are women leaders everywhere, there are still issues related to this that should not be happening in today’s world. For example, women employees are not paid equally as their male counterparts simple because they are women. Some corporations even came up with many reasons to justify this stating that, since women are highly likely to take maternity leave then they should not be paid equally. There might be a logic and this kind of reasoning might be seen…

Anna dressed in blood
By Kendare Blake
I never was quite a fan of horror books but I always loved the fantasy and mysteries and that is what attracted me to this book at the beginning.
After I start to read the first 2 chapters I have thrown away the book because it really scared me, but only because I made the mistake to read it at night, after 12a.m and when I was alone in the whole flat. Worst combination ever.
I picked it up after a while because I’ve heard many…
while reading The Good Mother is: Why did Anna let it happen? Of course, this question must be included among many others, most of which elicit ambiguous answers: What really happened? Was there fault to be assigned? If so, who was at fault? What is a good mother? Can a woman be a good lover and a good mother? Where must sexual boundaries be drawn between children and couples in a household?
Regardless of what it is, the answer to the question Why did Anna let it happen is that she was rendered…

The fairy tales that our parents have read to us night after night and the Disney movies we all know and love. What we didn’t know was how the authors of these stories were strengthening the stereotypical gender performances and social constructions…

This quote explains the everyday struggle of blacks living in the apartheid of South Africa. Apartheid is a policy of racial segregation and white supremacy by the South African government and was used to limit the governing power and place of residence of blacks…

Throughout the entire civilized western world, we’ve come to acknowledge the right that no man or woman is greater than the next. However, this is a fairly early belief which existed even during the Elizabethan period, when Shakespeare wrote various different plays, such as Julius Caesar, where William Shakespeare places very few female characters. Contrary belief states that Julius Caesar was akin to all other Shakespearean plays…

In the Julia North thought experiment, Julia North’s brain is transplanted into a different body. The underlying question arising from this case is does Julia North continue to exist after the operation? In this paper I will explore how the same-brain view, the bodily view, and the psychological linkage view would answer this question and provide evidence as to why I believe that the psychological linkage view in general and the indirect memory view in particular provide the most compelling answer…
