Heart of Flesh: A Book Review
[ send me this paper ]

Is Telecommuting Unfair To Women # 2 ?
[ send me this paper ]
In this well-argued 6 page paper, the point is made that tele-commuting does little more for women than keep them at home-- where they were a century ago. Women who work from their home office/computer are expected not only to handle corporate business from 9 - 5, they are also usually expected to take care of household affairs and even to raise children during the same time. This stands in contrast with men who cyber-commute but who are not expected to do anything other than work during the course of the business day. Various other relevant ethical issues are discussed and it is ultimately concluded that women have very little to gain in today's workplace. Bibliography lists 2 sources.

Lorraine Code's 'What Can She Know?: Feminist Theory And The Construction Of Knowledge'
[ send me this paper ]
8 pages in length. Lorraine Code's 'What Can She Know?' is a celebration of gender, with particular emphasis upon issues of feminism and patriarchal control. Indeed, Code portrays the perpetuation of feminism; not only are her writings a solid reflection of her sentiments of a lacking Anglo-American epistemology but so is the manner in which she reflects the female reawakening. Code displays her craft well and does not hesitate to apply her talent as more of a social statement than one of mere entertainment. Thus is the case with her ongoing assertion that there was truly no separation of the sexes in reality, short of the obvious physical differences; rather, her perpetual argument clearly makes the point that the female gender -- no matter how seemingly fragile and delicate -- is indeed just as much an emotionally strong and self-reliant individual as her socially-accepted male counterpart. The writer discusses Code's book as it relates to feminism and patriarchy. No additional sources cited.

Abortion And The Women's Movement
[ send me this paper ]
It is naturally assumed and probably correct that the women's movement began in the latter two decades of the nineteenth century. By the early 1930's, it was believed that gender roles had been culturally constructed in such a manner as to preclude such access by perpetrating a system of subjugation and beliefs that women were inferior to men. This opened the gates to advocating changes in social structure and cultural norms. From a women's history point of view the issue of abortion has run the gamut from total opposition to advocating for safe and economic access. The nineteenth-century women's rights advocates were unanimous in opposing abortion. This 5 page paper presents, in essay form, a brief history of the women's movement and the changes in attitude, within the movement, concerning abortion.

Fictional Portrayals of Women: William Faulkner Contrasted with Margaret Atwood
[ send me this paper ]
A 5 page comparison of the portrayals of women found in William Faulkner's "As I Lay Dying" and Margaret Atwood's "The Handmaid's Tale". Observes that the characterization of women in "As I Lay Dying" differs significantly from that in "The Handmaid's Tale". While the women in Faulkner's book are presented as simpletons and immoral, Atwood's women are presented as highly intelligent despite the societal prohibitions for being so and highly moral despite the forced circumstances of their lives. Both portrayals, however, are replete with stereotypical representations of women. In "The Handmaid's Tale", however, we are reassured that women are not shallow, not by nature promiscuous, despite the societal circumstances in which they may be forced to live.

Partial Birth Abortions
[ send me this paper ]
5 pages in length. Considered by some to be nothing more than a veiled lack of responsibility, partial birth abortions have come to the forefront of controversy. As if abortion, in and of itself, was not a hot enough issue for debate, both the procedure and reasoning behind partial birth abortion are under fire. Women whose fetuses have known birth defects most commonly utilize this highly invasive procedure as a means by which to terminate the late-term pregnancy. After the baby is purposely turned in the breach position, the doctor pulls it down through the birth canal until the only part left inside the mother's body is the head, which legally maintains its fetus status. The brain is then suctioned out and the skull crushed before the body is completely expelled. Indeed, the primary arguments about this particular procedure revolve around the status of personhood, as well as the reasons to even employ such a horrific alternative. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

Role Of Women: Renaissance And Today
[ send me this paper ]
5 pages in length. Throughout the renaissance, patriarchy was responsible for designing women’s role in society; many of these devices used in earlier centuries were related to religion. Certain scripture regularly challenged women to disprove that they were inferior—to not agree was heresy. When religion did not work alone, scientific theory was included as a factor in the equation that supported the ideal that women are inferior. Based on a conviction of inferiority, male authorities were then able to design lifestyles for women, including approved activities, mannerism, education, sexuality and religious pursuits. Contemporary society, however, has witnessed a metamorphosis of gender oppression, clearly demonstrated through popular culture. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

The position that women now occupy is vastly improved over that of prior generations, even though contemporary struggles would mask the gains that have been made. As written, the Declaration's goals have been achieved. As interpreted in light of the philosophers under whose influence the Declaration was written, there is still much more ground to gain - not in terms of technicalities, but rather in attitudes.

[ send me this paper ]
A 5 page paper discussing man’s "oppression" of women based on examples given in three feminist articles.

The paper labels that failure as lying with the artist, rather than with the audience, and extrapolates O’Keeffe’s experience to corporate America, where the failure of some women to rise to senior management levels is blamed on the glass ceiling, rather than the inherent abilities of the women that have been passed over.

A 10 page analysis in which the writer argues that Theda Skocpol in her book "Protecting Soldiers and Mothers," and also Kristi Andersen in her book "After Suffrage" address similar territory in that both of these political scientists look at how female participation in the American political process in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries has largely been under-appreciated or ignored completely. Both of these authors demonstrate that this participation must be viewed within the context of political framework of their time in order to be understood properly. Bibliography lists 8 sources.
