  • Battered Women's Movement

    A woman on the Edge Gender Inequality There have many elements of gender inequality discussed throughout the semester. One point that I found interesting was, the ideal that the reproductive ability of women created a power imbalance so strong that the society of the future has to come up with a way to remove this imbalance by industuralinzing in a sense reproduction. (K immer & Messner, 1998) I have mixed feelings about this, because on the one hand I feel that men desires to conquer women does...

In Law and Community, David M. Engel explores how ordinary people in a small, rural, Illinois town perceive the law, courts, litigants, and community. By analyzing the legal practices and relations in Sander County, it is evident that law and the courts play a cent...

Included among these cooperative colonies were the societies of Shakers, Rappites and Zoarites. All three commun...

  • Chesapeake And New England Societies

    Although New England and the Chesapeake regions were both settled largely by people of English origin, by the 1770's, these areas had developed into distinctly different societies.

  • Black Veil And The Community
    697 words
    In today's society, American literature illustrates the way a society or a community can affect an individual. It shows the ways of what a society can do to others, whether it is positive or negative.

In comparing early Americans to Americans today, I think these influences are the same, but in another way they are different. Today, people are more aware of all...
  • Hester's Condemnation And Alienation From Society
    584 words
    Hawthorne's Hester Prynne is a common character among Romantic writers; a rebel who refuses to conform to society's codes. However, in the novel, society is not made out as the sole evil force. While most readers would instinctively feel sympathy for Hester's nonconformist attitude, society had reasons for condemning her. An argument can be made in favor of society insisting that adultery is a crime deserving of a punishment. What Hester and Dimmesdale did was wrong, both of them admit to it, an...
  • Collective Society
    361 words
    In comparing the collective society in Anthem by Ayn Rand, and the society that Prometheus envisions at the end of the book, there are many differences, and few similarities. The collective society is all about unity, and people living, breathing and doing everything together, while the way of life Prometheus dreams of and is hoping to create is free and not limited. There are no pecuniary concerns in either group, because there is no money. It seems there is not a need for capital. The people c...
