THE LIFE OF A WOMAN IN ANCIENT CHINA
The life of a woman in ancient china was a really cruel and harsh one. Many of the things that were a popular practise back then are now against the law universally now days. Men had absolute power of women, women’s feet were bound, women had specific clothes they had to wear and they developed a secret language.
Foot binding was a very strong practice in ancient china. Young girls from the age of about five or six had their feet bound by their MOTHERS. It started at this age because the feet were not fully grown (there for they were very small), and easy to change shape. This prosses was begun by breaking the toes and folding them as far back as

A Reflection on the two Chinese films ‘Together’ and ‘Eat, Drink, Man, Woman’
Mainland China’s Together tells the story of a young boy named Xiaochun who happens to be a brilliant violinist, and the sacrifices that he and his father had to make in pursuit of his musical success. On the other hand, Taiwan’s Eat, Drink, Man, Woman revolves on the relationship of an elderly master chef with his three grown-up daughters. These are two films which tackle how Chinese people interact and relate to one another as members of one family while pursuing their own personal goals in life. Both films exhibit the Chinese people’s love for the arts, such as music and cuisine, and their usually unspoken

chances of miscarriage also increase. Drugs that a pregnant woman takes can affect the fetus in several ways. They can act directly on the fetus causing damage or abnormal development leading to birth defects or death. They can also alter the function of the placenta usually by constricting blood vessels and reducing the blood supply of oxygen and nutrients to the fetus from the mother and thus resulting in a baby that is underweight and underdeveloped. Moreover they can cause the muscles of the uterus to contract forcefully; indirectly injuring the fetus by reducing the blood supply or triggering pre-term labor and delivery. 
In my opinion, pregnant women should be punished for

In today's society woman have fought hard to be recognized in every aspect of our every being. It was hard back in the 1900's to be who we want to be without being told no or we couldn't do it. All we were to men were house workers and baby makers. We were not allowed to voice our opinion nor were we allowed to vote. It was almost like we were in prison in our own home.

As a man in America you are not pressured as much to hold a self-imagine. In fact a man can be judge of social status by the woman he has on his arm. Yet being a woman of great social value and worth requires you to have a husband, better yet a husband of great financial worth.

Women in the Qur'an and Bible
Gender equality has been a controversial topic within religions, especially in Christianity and Islam. In fact, both Holy books in these religions (the Bible and Qur’an) have a lot to say. There is a common conception that holy books, especially the Qur’an and Bible depict women in a negative light. In fact, in the West, it is believed that Islam treats women a lot harsher than Christianity. For instance, each year in alliance with Sharia Law, thousands of Muslim husbands and sons kill their wives and daughters in accordance with “honor killings.” They are beheaded strangled, stoned and shot. If a Muslim woman suffers rape, Muslim men blame the woman

Should it be illegal for a pregnant woman to consume alcohol? Consider the legal and health ramifications of your answer.
Allow me to start by saying, that I am unequivocally against drinking alcohol while pregnant. There is no reason for a woman who is foreseeing having a newborn child or already pregnant to drink. Drinking while pregnant can cause many different defects to an unborn baby. Talking from an utilitarian point of view, I would say that she is doing harm to an anticipated individual. Many children have develop Fetal Alcohol Syndrome due to mothers exposing their unborn child to frequent alcohol abuse.

These laws and amendments often have a positive affect on society. Two major laws and amendments that impacted American Society were the Pure Food and Drug Act of 1906 and the 19th amendment giving woman rights.

In the first minute of the film, a lot about the woman’s character is revealed. The opening sequence shows many homeless people in the station but the woman noticeably ignores them. Next, a hurried man bumps into the woman, causing her purse to fall to the ground. He attempts to help her gather the items, but she snaps at him, shoves her items into her purse, and runs to her train. Of course, she misses it. Through all this it is obvious that the woman does not feel comfortable or safe. She seems to be a wealthy woman, obviously nervous to be in the station alone. She also is very suspicious of people around her. Finally, there are underlying racial issues. The man who bumps into her in the

Depiction of Women
Women are depicted as subordinate creatures in both the Tanakh and Antigone, yet throughout history, they continue to fight this hierarchy in one way or another. Within this paper, there will be examples of the ways women are treated and how they react to this treatment. It will also discuss various situations that strengthen this argument.
In the Tanakh, when God created man, God took a look at man and decided that he needed someone to help him. God did not create woman to be his equal, but God created her to be his helper. In Genesis 2, the Tanakh somewhat puts women in the same category with the animals, but one step higher due to the fact that she was made from

Nick is an insecure and naive boy, but he develops a lot through the story. In the course of the story he goes from just having a slight idea of what it is to die, to actually experience the results of human suicide. Also seeing a woman giving birth made him grow, and gave him knowledge.
In some respects he’s weak, for example when his father is going to put on some stitches on the woman, Nick don’t want to look. But on the other hand he’s strong. When the husband has committed suicide, it doesn’t seem to affect him that much, but that might also be because of the chock he gets.

A man and a woman are having some drinks at the bar in the station as they wait for the train to Barcelona. The woman’s name is jig and the man’s name is unknown to us. As the couple drinks, the woman tells that man that the hills in the distance remind her of "white elephants." (Hemingway). The man says that he does not think they look like white elephants.

There has long been a big debate among abortion supporters and those who oppose abortions, as to just when it is considered that human life begins. It has been a question for centuries whether the unborn is truly a “person”. If we consider the unborn to be a “person” then the unborn should also have an inalienable right to life just as everyone else does. Human life has many stages; a human embryo and the human fetus are early stages of human life. According to Lugosi (2005) historically common law determined that when a

A current issue of controversy is abortion, which has polarized the national community and is a current hot topic in the Presidential debates. Two groups of abortion include the people who are pro-life who believe that there is a right to life before conception. This is based on moral and ethical issues as well as religious implications. The opposing group believes that life does not begin until after the baby is born and that the family has the right to choose.
A feminist would describe the roots of this problem as based in the woman’s reproductive right to choose. A woman should have the right to their body and their health and that they should the freedom to choose their own life

He has his adventures--but if he has fond memories of their early days together, his and hers, she may be sure that she matters. A commotion means the end of everything. She should be quiet and generous, and when something comes up that quite properly arouses her resentment she should make it known by delicate hints.” Women were not supposed to object to any man; this is why they resorted to such an extreme measure of communication.

Corporates viewed women as weaker and less committed than male counterparts. “Lady Candidates Need Not Apply”- was the common last line in job advertisements.

Abortion is the removal of an embryo or fetus from the uterus in order to end a pregnancy. Abortion is one of the most controversial issues around and it will remain an issue that will never be agreed upon. The issue of morals has been put into the question of whether it should be legal to have an abortion thus elevating the subject to a higher level. Some people no longer look at abortion as a question of choice but as a question of morality, and these perceptions have led to a full-blown debate over something that should not be questioned.

Upon reading Pride and Prejudice, by Jane Austin, I believe the novel reinforces sexist stereotypes of women. One of the things that really struck me was the desire the women had to find themselves a husband. A husband who was wealthy was at the utmost importance for most of the women. A woman could talk bad of another woman in hopes of deterring a man of his interest in a particular woman as to give them a better opportunity that this man would desire them as their wife instead of any other woman.
The very opening words of Pride and Prejudice give the reader their first taste of what to expect:

In today’s society there are many different ways to exemplify one’s sexiness and even ways to hide it. Much of the time, the media portrays a woman as being sexy by wearing tight clothing or even no clothes and having an in-shape body with tan skin. The media, and most of society, also judge a woman’s attractiveness based on how skinny she is.

. Therefore, abortion is not allowed in every single religion, however he also mentions that as long as there is pregnancies, moments will come that can only be solved in one way. So this means that even though some religions are against abortion, there will still be cases where doing the abortion actually is better.
Secondly, there is the case where a woman could have been raped or been put through incest, thus leading to an unintended pregnancy. According to Wikipedia, 38% of all pregnancies in 1999 were unintended, that is around 80 million pregnancies. Of course, not all of these pregnancies came from rape or incest, most of them happened because they lacked protection. But there are still
