Affirmative Action
Affirmative Action Anonymous Affirmative action is an extremely ineffective plan to equalize minorities and majorities in the work force. This equality is supposed to be attained by requiring employers to fill racial quotas. A racial quota is a percent of employees that belong to a minority group that the employer must achieve. If the employer doesn?t meet the quota, he/she is penalized. One setback of this idea is the fact that people, who belong to a minority, don?t have to work as hard to att

Women's Liberation Carolyn Hennig In early societies, women bore children, cared for the home, and helped maintain the family's economic production. Men hunted, made war, and, in settled societies, assumed primary responsibility for field crop production. Male dominance, however, was important from the time of the earliest written historical records, probably as a result of men's discovery of their role in development of hunting and warfare as status activities.

Is Government Interference Right? Anonymous Should government have the right to interfere in our private lives?

Titanic The film Titanic is riddled with moral dilemmas. In one of the scenes, the owner of Star Line, the shipping company that owned the now-sinking Unsinkable, joins a lowered life-boat. The tortured expression on his face demonstrates that even he experiences more than unease at his own conduct. Prior to the disaster, he instructs the captain to adopt a policy dangerous to the ship. Indeed, it proves fatal. A complicating factor was the fact that only women and children were allowed by the

Liberated from the superstitions of the past, he doubts even the reality of his own existence. Superficially relaxed and tolerant, he finds little use for dogmas of racial and ethnic purity but at the same time forfeits the security of group loyalties and regards everyone as a rival for the favors conferred by a paternalistic sta

Feminism And Gender Equality In The 1990's Unknown Overall, the rights and status of women have improved considerably in the last century; however, gender equality has recently been threatened within the last decade. Blatantly sexist laws and practices are slowly being eliminated while social perceptions of women's roles continue to stagnate and even degrade back to traditional ideals.
