Gender equality has three aspects: equal opportunities, equal treatment and equal entitlements for both, men and women. It is directly linked with human development.
The author says that patriarchy thrives on control of women’s sexuality, fertility and labour for male hegemony over economic resources. Economic institutions and policy can exacerbate existing gender inequalities instead of mitigating them.
Laws and policies too play a significant role in determining the extent of gender inequality that exists in a society. They can serve to protect women’s rights or to reduce them.
For example, in many countries, women still lack the legal right to inherit or own property and, in many

As human, we can change the way of how to say something without affecting others, language can be sexist but the key is how to use it. In my opinion, the language is changing as a result of how society is acting. If we permit offensive words in our culture or society, those words will be transferred to ours generations and then it will be impossible to change it. Women should be respected and not treated sexuality symbol the weak sex, women are such intelligent and strong as men, and may be stronger than them.

Pornography is also discouraged by some religious groups and supports any legal campaign which confines its publication. They believe that human beings have been created by God and sexual intercourse was introduced for the purpose of marriage and therefore they consider that through this sex-driven amusement, human sexuality is misrepresented.

What is more, vents et marees can be regarded as a hint of sensuality and sexuality. It impersonates force, strength and power. Wind and undulating sea might be understood as an expression of irrepressible passion. Vents et marrees are a part of nature, which is uncontrollable like the passions of human beings sometimes are. Neither vents, nor marees are eternal. Wind calms down as unexpectedly as it arises, so does passion. It is shown in the next line: ‘au loin deja’. Repeating the picture of “Demons et merveilles / vents et marees ”, the poet creates the impression of cyclical. Winds and tides, demons and marvels come out of the blue and disappear.

with globalisation comes the concept of cosmopolitan religion which provides choice in many different areas of life, such as diversity, sexuality, careers etc, and because of this choice there is an element of uncertainty. This also links in with the idea of ‘spiritual shopping’ in which people explore different aspects of regions and almost pick and chose which parts they like, without fully adopting every single belief and solid practises/teachings of one religion. Globalisation provides the necessary components to adapt to a postmodern society, and the fundamentalism is to refuse the adaptation, and return to the roots of their faith, and their faith only. As a result, promoting the idea

that the body tends to have to arousal. Additionally, there is another form of treatment that has been known to be successful. This treatment was developed by Dr. J. Semens in 1956, and, as like everything, was tweaked later by others. This treatment is intended to help both men and women to become more aware of the sensations that they are feeling leading up to orgasm. As they learn to distinguish between each phase, they are then able to modify their body movements in order to delay early ejaculation/orgasm. This treatment can last anywhere from several weeks to several months, until the patient regains most of the control over their bodies.

The history of sex education began in the 1980s when the debate of having sex education in schools really began to take off. Two of the major forces that drove this movement were the growing rates of STDs and prostitution. Therefore, "by 1989, 23 states had passed mandates for sexuality education, an additional 23 states strongly encouraged sex education, 33 mandated AIDS education and 17 additional states recommended it," (FOSE). Opponents had previously taken the stance that the topic sex should not be discussed in schools, but now they fought for the idea that the only message that should be

Technology has allowed people to only care about their own selfish desires, and have caused many to lose the human connection.

These are people who are born with complete physical characteristics and features of one sex, but often feel emotional and psychological belonging to the opposite sex. As such a male feels and acts like a female, and vice versa. Many people, including those with sufficient understanding in psychological and social issues argue that trans sexuality is the root cause of homosexuality and bisexuality Morrow et al 19).

The Psychological Causes and Effects of Masochism and Sadism

Masochism and sadism are very alike in nature. Masochism is a sexual perversion characterized by pleasure in being subjected to pain or humiliation; especially by a loved object. Sadism is the pleasure in being abused or dominated. Sadists have a taste for suffering. Masochism could be a means of escaping from one’s self. It could be a temporally extended identity. The awareness of one’s self is replaced by the focus on immediate present and on bodily sensations. Psychologists have found that the principle feature of masochism such

Abhorring rape is central to many feminist ideals. This aggressive and violent action is perhaps one of the most vivid representations of male dominance over females. Rape is an act of aggression, a classified war crime, and an assertion of men’s dominance and power. Emma Sulkowicz, a Columbia University student, was raped by a peer and is now calling her school and community to awareness and action by carrying around the scene of the crime: a dorm mattress. Sulkowicz’s experience of rape, while not connected with an official or militarized war like that of the United States-Mexico border, is part of a larger call to arms by transnational feminists and human rights activists around the

It appears as if the human body has been created to perform at its fullest potential according to just the right combination of hormones. Hormones are chemicals that are secreted from particular cells that flow into the bloodstream and then transported into a variety of body parts responsible for acting on certain tissues. These hormones affect physical and mental aspects of the human being. (Priya Johnson, 2011) The monthly menstrual cycle is just one of many biological factors that determine how hormones work in women. It is a very common for women to behave in a certain manner during

how Othello’s demise can be interpreted, and present all characters in varying light.
Between these three versions of Shakespeare’s play, the original work presents Othello’s change most clearly. In it, Othello’s transition from “good” to “bad” is very apparent. Shakespeare portrays Othello as a simplified human, perhaps to make him more relatable in vagueness, and in so doing makes his deterioration obvious. At the beginning of the play, the Duke addresses Othello as “Valiant Othello,” and values his advice on political matters (1.3.50). At this time, Othello (though disrespected on the issue of race) is a prized presence in his country and among his peers. His bravery is matched by

Low levels of GABA cause the brain to become too stimulated causing rapid speech, sleeplessness, and development of lavish ideas. Low levels are also associated with problems of self-control, hyper sexuality, excessive spending, reckless decisions, gambling, and temper tantrums. “Changes in neurotransmitter regulation that lead to bipolar disorder may be affected by the presence of another illness, stress, substance abuse, changes in diet and exercise, and hormonal changes” (Mark Zelman, 2010).

The Problem of Definition: In this chapter Oswalt discusses the many accepted definitions of a myth.

In Segal and Jaffe (2013), the affectional bond is simply but realistically defined as one's first love relationship.

The term nuclear family can be defined simply as a wife/mother, a husband/father, and their children. However, this straightforward structural definition is surrounded by a cloud of ambiguity and controversy. Most of the debates have centred around three questions.

Physical education is required in every American high school. Physical education programs engage students in regular physical activity and help students acquire skills and habits necessary to pursue an active lifestyle. There is evidence showing that Physical education can promote better classroom learning by keeping kids more on task and improving concentration. Physical education not only provides physical activity that can help a child in the short-term, but it can also teach students the behavioral and movement skills that will help them be physically active later in life. There are many reasons why physical education should be required, but perhaps the
