"A woman's place is in the home." This is a very old saying, and has today I think come to mean something very specific. When people use this expression today, it is usually in ridicule of someone else, and suggesting that they have very old-fashioned and reprehensible beliefs. The notion is that people who actually believe that the saying is true, believe that all women should be forced to stay in their homes, and not go out to work, or have careers, and that they should busy and content themselves with tidying up and decorating the home, to make it a pleasant place to be for their husbands who will appreciate this. On top of this, they must do the cooking and washing. If this is what the saying means, then I disagree with it.

The saying refers to a very large and complicated topic: that of people's roles in society, and if I were forced to state that I either agreed or disagreed with the statement, then whichever answer I gave would be a simplification so great that it would be untrue. However, I may surprise you by stating that I am more in agreement with the statement than against it.

The standard modern belief seems to be that the saying is wrong. Modern people also seem to believe that those who agree with the saying have old-fashioned views. Actually, I think that there is a confusion between modernity and older ways on this issue. The notion that a woman must stay at…...

Jack Wright Case 7

...of the Mega Corporation Board of Directors, Jack Wright felt confident in his assessment of the functionality of the organization. Wright found that the company had a strong balance sheet, several successfully operating businesses, and some other businesses that could be sold. Yet Wright also found that there were several issues that were not being addressed. Wright found that somehow Sam Bigger was keeping John Rock from changing the governance structure of Mega. Bigger’s control of the company is the first barrier towards Mega’s progress as a company. The situation with Sam Bigger is a very common one with entrepreneurs. Sam Bigger started the company many years ago and has experienced a great deal of success. It is a difficult thing for a well accomplished business man to admit that the ways things have always been done are no longer effective. It has become evident that changes are needed in order to stimulate growth and improve business operations. Sam Bigger has so much control of the company that he is a hindrance to Mega and its operations moving forward. The question now is what action should John Wright take in order to break through the entrenchment of Sam Bigger? There are a few options that Jack Wright could take in this situation. Wright considered going directly to Bigger for a face-to-face discussion. Wright chose not to go that because he felt he did not understand his motives well enough. I believe that Wright should have done this first. He may have been......

Elizabeth Wright Dies

...Views. Elizabeth Wright Dies Jared Taylor, American Renaissance, August 24, 2011 Elizabeth Wright, the editor of Issues and Views, has died. The Booker T. Washington Society posted a brief notice of her death, but I know of no other mention, in paper or on the Internet, of the passing of this remarkable woman. On June 20, she had posted an ominous notice on her blog, in which she wrote that “If all goes according to plan, I shall be entering a hospice for cancer care.” I wrote to her usual e-mail address, asking for more details about her health, but got no reply. It pained me that her final blog notice was titled, “To All Those Friends I Never Met.” I was one of those friends she never met. It would not be an exaggeration to say that I have been fascinated by Elizabeth Wright ever since I became aware of her many years ago, when Issues and Views was still a paper publication. I discovered that Elizabeth had a piercingly clear understanding of race, and wrote in an uncompromising style. We corresponded, and AR posted several of her essays—and yet I never really knew her. Elizabeth wanted it that way. We spoke on the phone only a few times, and she spoke as she wrote—clearly and vigorously. And yet she kept me at a distance. The last time we spoke I was in New York City, where she lived, and I practically begged her to let me meet her. She declined. She wasn’t keen on meeting people, she said. There was a great deal I wanted to know about Elizabeth Wright. How did......

Woman's Suffrage

...Riley Flynn Woman’s Suffrage Now days when you turn eighteen in the United States. you can vote in the election but that was not always true for woman. Before 1920 woman were not allowed to vote only men could. It all began in 1848, at the first woman’s rights convention in New York, and didn’t end until 1920 when the 19th amendment, which gave women the right to vote, was finally ratified and became a law on August 26, 1920. Many brave woman and organizations fought for the right to be considered equal to men. Organizations such as NWSA, founded by Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and AWSA, founded by Lucy Stone and Henry Blackwell. These people, as well as many others, took a stand so that woman could have the rights that they do today, the right to vote. Woman’s suffrage was one of the most influential things in history because it allowed men and woman to be treated as equals, and without it, America would not be where it is today. During World War One women stepped up their role and took on the men’s jobs while they were fighting, without them, the country would not have survived. Woman who campaigned for the vote stopped their radical actions to aid Britain in a time of need. Women assisted by going to special training camps to become doctors, they helped in food production, factories, and even worked in the fields planting and harvesting doing all the things men would have been responsible for before the war. Women put their feelings aside, stepped...

Wright Family

...Life With The Wright Family One day the Wright family decided to take a vacation. The first thing they had to decide was who would be left at home since there was not enough room in the Wright family car for all of them. Mr. Wright decided that Aunt Linda Wright would be the one left at home. Of course this made Aunt Linda Wright so mad that she left the house immediately yelling “It will be a right cold day before I return.” The Wright family now bundled up the children, Tommy Wright, Susan Wright, Timmy Wright, and Shelly Wright and got in the car and left. Unfortunately, as they turned out of the driveway someone had left a trash can in the street so they had to turn right around and stop the car. They told Timmy Wright to get out of the car and move the trash can so they could get going. Tommy took so long that they almost left him in the street. Once the Wright family got on the road, Mother Wright wondered if she had left the stove on. Father Wright told her not to worry he had checked the stove and she had not left it on. As they turned right at the corner, everyone started to think about other things that they might have left undone. No need to worry now, they were off on a right fine vacation. When they arrived at the gas station, Father Wright put gas in the car and then discovered that he had left his wallet at home. So Timmy Wright ran home to get the money that was left behind. After Timmy had left, Susan Wright started to feel sick. She left the car saying that...

A Woman's Role in Mankind

...A Woman’s Role In Mankind Since the beginning of mankind and the early records of literature it has always been man that has been superior over women. Many see women as supporters of man and consider them naturally weaker than men. After reading and analyzing the early literatures of The Hebrew Bible and The Epic Of Gilgamesh I believe there is more to a women’s part in history than it appears. Whether it is for better or for worse it is apparent that women have played a key role in shaping the future of man. In genesis, the story of Eve has given men reasons to suppress women. Eve, although a women she played a vital part in the story. Eve was fist to be tempted by the serpent and the first to sin. It was the woman who was deceived. She could be identified as a temptress to Adam, the one you persuaded him to commit sin. This is why the role that Eve plays is similar to that of the serpent. In any case her part was not for the better of man. It portrays women as sinister and evil. In the story it justified that women are guilty for the misery that mankind had to suffer. In literature women did not always play as evil individuals that held back the potential of man. In The Epic of Gilgamesh it shows that women can be powerful with the ability to influence men with their delicacy and intellect. In the epic women represents not only power but also great wisdom. The Priestess Shamhat, the temple herlot is an example of that. She was able to tame the wild man, Enkidu. She......

The Wright Report

...Wright Report There are numerous ways to view Jesus. His life, teachings, and impact on the world have different meanings to people around the world. In Simply Jesus, N.T. Wright takes a look into Jesus’ life as well as the world in which he lived and the people he lived among. By diving deep into history, Wright attempts to portray Jesus as something larger than people often times imagine. Wright begins Simply Jesus with one of the most important visualizations of Jesus: his entry into Jerusalem on a donkey. Through years of academic study and contemporary events, such as Jesus Christ Superstar, Wright has come to believe that “Jesus – the Jesus we might discover if we really looked! – is larger, more disturbing, more urgent than we – than the church! – had ever imagined” (4-5). In part one, Wright compares Jesus’ life to a “perfect storm,” where a set of circumstances combine to create unexpected and unmatched conditions. This “perfect storm” is composed of skepticism and conservatism, the growing and dominating power of Rome, and the divinity of God’s kingdom, with Jesus striding out into the eye of the storm. Part two focuses on how Jesus brought the kingdom of God to the Jews of the first century. Wright shows how Jesus himself had, in a way, become a new Temple for the Jews. Jesus taught the Jews with parables, spoke of a great battle against “a satan” (119), and the cleansing and rebuilding of the Temple. Jesus both fit into and yet did not fit the roles......

Frank Lloyd Wright

...Frank Lloyd Wright and Japanese Influence Frank Lloyd Wright was one of America’s greatest architects, but one question continues after his death: how much did Japanese culture influence his style and design philosophy? There has been much debate and literature written about how Wright cultivated his craft. He never gave credit to any influence and was also very critical of other architects’ work. I believe that several factors contributed to the incredible talent of this self- absorbed, egotistical artist. In 1887, Wright started work for the architectural firm of Adler and Sullivan. Louis Sullivan designed the first skyscraper, the Wainwright Building (Hart 10) in St. Louis. Sullivan’s style was form follows function, giving more importance to the interior of a building than the exterior. Being part of new ideas and styles in architecture was very intriguing to Wright. Sullivan was a great influence to Wright and helped shape his style. After the Civil War, there was a shift of wealth in this country from a couple of millionaires to many. This allowed more people to have expendable income and a culture began of buying large homes and the collectables to fill them. When Frank Lloyd Wright was 26, he attended the 1893 Columbian Exposition in Chicago which brought “Japonism” (Puechler) as a cultural phenomenon to America. It was here that Wright found a common connection between his philosophy and that of Japanese culture. He liked clean......

Wright Brothers

...Introduction: The Wright brothers, Orville (August 19, 1871 – January 30, 1948) and Wilbur (April 16, 1867 – May 30, 1912), were two Americans who are generally credited with inventing and building the world's first successful airplane and making the first controlled, powered and sustained heavier-than-air human flight, on December 17, 1903. In the two years afterward, the brothers developed their flying machine into the first practical fixed-wing aircraft. Although not the first to build and fly experimental aircraft, the Wright brothers were the first to invent aircraft controls that made fixed-wing powered flight possible Wilber Wright: Birth date and birthplace: April 16, 1867(1867-04-16)Millville, Indiana Orville Wright: Birth date and Birthplace: August 19, 1871(1871-08-19)Dayton, Ohio Family Life: The Wright brothers were two of seven children born to Milton Wright (1828–1917) and Susan Catherine Koerner (1831–1889). Wilbur Wright was born near Millville, Indiana in 1867; Orville in Dayton, Ohio in 1871. The brothers never married. The other Wright siblings were named Reuchlin (1861–1920), Lorin (1862–1939), Katharine (1874–1929), and twins Otis and Ida (born 1870, died in infancy). In elementary school, Orville was given to mischief and was once expelled. In 1878 their father, who traveled often as a bishop in the Church of the United Brethren in Christ, brought home a toy "helicopter" for his two younger sons. The device was based on an invention...

Gavin Wright Book Re

...Slavery and American Economic Development. Gavin Wright. LSU Press. 2006. 162 pp. $25 paper. ISBN: 978-0807131831, Gavin Wright’s Slavery and American Economic Development is a read that dwells deep into American slavery and deep south economy. The book recollects the impact of slavery on the American South during the 19th century. Gavin Wright presents his work through an examination of slavery as an economic establishment that help convince the reader that salves were viewed as property. Wright’s central point in the book is what he calls “property rights”, which slaves are property first, and humans second. He believes that this is the reason for the South’s slave economy economy during the antebellum period and how it boomed throughout the time period. Using this as a theme, Wright creates the distinction between slavery as a form of work and slavery as property rights. This allows the southerners to treat their slaves as a form of property that they can control and will not have any consequences if one “breaks down”. This free labor allowed the plantation owners to put the slaves to work for free in such harsh condition. These conditions would never attract free labor and it allowed them to views the slaves as property. Labeling them as property and inferior helped justify their brutal tactics when controlling their plantations. Another point Wright makes in his book is when he compares the economic growth of the workforce in the north with the slaves......

Jack Wright Case 1

...August 25, 2015 Jack Wright Case 1 Jack Wright, Director Jack Wright would be considered an extremely successful businessman by today’s standards. Being a CEO of a prosperous major company in the Midwest, Dryden Corporation, Wright over the previous ten years has led the company to even more accomplishments than he originally thought possible. Through dozens of acquisitions, Wright managed to grow annual revenues to over a staggering two billion dollars. At the age of only 55, Wright had gained respect and a healthy reputation in the surrounding community and the industry itself. While Wright was very fruitful in his success, he was very interested in what one of his notable friends, John Rock, approached him with. Rock, the CEO of Mega Corporation, came to Wright in 2002 with the proposition of joining Mega’s board of directors. Mega Corporation was a large company with headquarters in the southeast. With eleven subsidiaries operating throughout the region, Mega’s sales averaged around seven billion, much larger than Dryden. Without looking at any other facts, it seems clear that Wright should accept this position on the board. However, at a closer look, maybe Wright should kindly decline the offer. From the beginning, Wright had been invited to many social gatherings involving other members of the board of Mega. These events included many dinners and a golf outing, in which Wright was able to network with Mega’s employees. Wright did not even realize......

When a Woman's Had Enough

...Jamie Lyons November 2, 2015 Profess A. Berlin English 201-06 When A Woman’s Had Enough Walking away from a dysfunctional relationship, whether it is romantic or otherwise, instills a sense of power and brings control back into our lives. We tend to become powerless because we’re insecure and too trusting of our partner. Although being insecure isn’t a terrible thing, when we are in love and insecure with ourselves, we’re more likely to be in a vulnerable state. Frequently, we miss the flawed character of our lover and give them undue credit. As a result, we can easily be manipulated and be seen as weak or invaluable, just like a pawn in the game of chess. In the story Mauser, by Louise Erdrich, we learn the only thing left for a woman with a broken heart is revenge, and we witness bravery in the face of danger; even death and strong-will are traits that are sought out on the ones who wronged her. When one’s insecurities and state of vulnerability is combined, being manipulated is an easy task. As a contender for heartbreak and continuous failed relationships, the narrator falls victim to Travis, a charming, but vain construction worker she works with at Mauser’s company. Although she knows Travis likes to play games, and thinks he can get anything he wants because of his smooth character and charming looks, the narrator still gives in to his manipulating ways. Sadly, Travis is not only known for manipulating women, but also manipulating his controlling boss......

C. Wright

...C. Wright Mills described the sociological imagination as the vivid awareness of the relationship between experience and the wider society. Also the sociological imagination allows us to understand the connection between history and biography. When he mentioned history, he referred to the environment and the society that introduces us to our characteristics. When he mention biography referred to the experiences within the historic setting, which gives us our position in life. Also, we do what we do because we inherited some internal mechanism. The environment I have lived in throughout my life is Jamaica Queens. Throughout my childhood I did not have everything. I did was unable to have the latest clothes, better yet clothes of my own. I hated it. I was the youngest of four and the clothes and shoes I wore handed down to me. When I was able to get clothes of my own, I had more than enough. Now that I have two daughters I buy two of everything, and things, such as clothes, shoes and toys, get donated when the girls out grow them. Other than the textbook, I searched the sociological imagination on Youtube and watch various videos, some of the videos were slideshow and some were lectures. Sociologists are well aware that all is not as it seems. Here is an interesting article for you to consider. Comment on this article. What does it mean? Also, read the section on the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis on page 49 of the textbook for more information on language and perception. How does......

Chuck Wright

...Chuck Wright: A New Sheriff in Town Chuck Wright: A New Sheriff in Town All public positions no matter the jurisdiction come with a great deal of scrutiny that their appointees have to endure and this is no different for the Sheriff of Spartanburg County. Chuck Wright was elected to be the 40th Sheriff of Spartanburg County in 2005 and he put himself in position to managing a large and complex government bureaucracy. The Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Department is a goal directed organization, tasked with protecting the citizens within the County. In today’s modern society leadership in the police force is very important to the existence of the community. There is a belief that “the age of modern leaders is declining” but I believe that Sheriff Chuck Wright is a modern leader (Ages, 2011). I had the pleasure of watching Sheriff at a Town Hall Meeting in Spartanburg County where he addressed the issues that were plaguing the citizens of the county and some of his recent comments that had been in the media. Sheriff Wright stood by his record as a leader in Spartanburg County. He spoke in front of hundreds of people packed into a meeting room to listen to him discuss protections tips, including everything from cutting back bushes around home to carrying guns. In my opinion for someone to be a positive leader they must put the department’s goals ahead of fulfilling his personal needs of achievement. Since, his election in 2005 Sheriff Wright has continually but......

A Woman's Perspective

...A Woman’s Perspective Over the course of time, women have played various roles in politics and literature often mirroring the circumstances of the age and time they lived in. A few people dared go against the norm and Susan Glaspell was one of them. Set in an age where women were considered inferior to men, her stories usually challenged that perception, often having a female heroine or displaying with remarkable subtlety the necessity of a woman’s insight. In Susan Glaspell’s “A Jury of Her Peers,” because Mrs. Hale and Mrs. Peters look at the state of the Wright house, the dead canary, and Mr. Wright’s behavior from a different perspective from their trained husbands, they come to a quicker and more accurate understanding of the events leading up to the murder. Almost as soon as they step into the Wright home, it is obvious Mrs. Hale and Mrs. Peters are not going see things the same way their husbands do. Straightaway, the women draw different conclusions from the state of the house than the men. The women observe the unusual state of general disarray the house is in, noting the unwashed kitchen utensils and the dirty towels. So while the men make jokes about Mrs. Wright’s skills as a housekeeper, the women deduce that there must be a reason for the general state of disarray because it is odd for a woman to leave her home in that state. This is also why they make excuses about the state of the house to their husbands. For instance Mrs. Hale says: “There’s a......
