Women Of The Incan Empire: Before And After The Conquest Of Peru, 2016 Southern Adventist Univeristy
Women Of The Incan Empire: Before And After The Conquest Of Peru, Sarah A. Hunt
This paper contrasts the life of Incan women before and after the Spanish conquest of Peru by Pizarro. Spanish colonization of Peru had a significant, negative impact on Incan women, across social, economic, and religious sectors. Before the conquest, women held fairly complimentary, rather than subordinate roles to men in society. Spanish rule introduced a strict patriarchy, which reduced Incan women to second-class citizens. The Spanish exploited women within the economy, and destroyed the once revered female religious institutions. Examining women in conquest history provides an intimate look at gender and power relations, socio-economics, and the shifting familial and cultural ...

The Bodies, Minds, Desires And Scorn Of Britain's "Stepdaughters Of War", Alexandra J. Lightle
All Graduate Works by Year: Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects
This thesis revolves around Evadne Price’s novel, Not So Quiet… Stepdaughters of War, published in 1930 under the pen name Helen Zenna Smith. The book delves into the inner life of a young female driver in a voluntary ambulance corps in France during World War I. Throughout the novel the reader is witness to the hardships of young women who left their sheltered drawing rooms only to be plunged into the apocalyptic landscape of the Western Front. They were ill informed as to what they were volunteering for and they struggled desperately to cope with the heretofore unimagined carnage ...
How Civility Works, 2016 Syracuse University
How Civility Works, Keith Bybee
Institute for the Study of the Judiciary, Politics, and the Media at Syracuse University
Is civility dead? Americans ask this question every election season, but their concern is hardly limited to political campaigns. Doubts about civility regularly arise in just about every aspect of American public life. Rudeness runs rampant. Our news media is saturated with aggressive bluster and vitriol. Our digital platforms teem with expressions of disrespect and trolls. Reflecting these conditions, surveys show that a significant majority of Americans believe we are living in an age of unusual anger and discord. Everywhere we look, there seems to be conflict and hostility, with shared respect and consideration nowhere to be found. In a ...

Body Autonomy During Pregnancy: Where Did It Go?, 2016 The College at Brockport
Body Autonomy During Pregnancy: Where Did It Go?, Brooke A. Ophardt
This paper takes a personal yet informative look at body autonomy during pregnancy, examining the laws that remove autonomy from pregnant women with a look at how that affects women overall. The paper uses feminist theory to examine how the commodification of reproduction has stripped women of their body autonomy during their pregnancies and argues how women throughout history have largely been valued only for reproductive purposes.
Women In Medicine: Excluding Women, 2016 The College at Brockport
Women In Medicine: Excluding Women, Natalia Manhertz
Throughout history, society has pushed women out of the public sphere of work and into the private sphere of home. The medical field is one example of this gender segregation of work. Even though the medical field today is not as male-dominated as it once was, different sub-specializations in medicine are gender segregated. My goal for this essay is to focus on gender segregation in the workplace to show how the field of medicine has been masculinized with a particular focus on the subspecialty area of surgery. This paper will discuss these two points from a personal point of view ...
Women And The Black Lives Matter Movement: Relevance Past To Present, 2016 The College at Brockport, State University of New York
Women And The Black Lives Matter Movement: Relevance Past To Present, Ronieka Burns
Traditional white American society wonders why the Black Lives Matter Movement is even taking place, since many Americans argue that racism doesn’t exist. This paper explores why women in the Black Lives Matter Movement are needed and relevant. This paper sets out to open readers’ eyes to the fact that, although this is the year 2016, the same trials and tribulations that have taken place throughout our nation’s history are still taking place. We still have a long way to go to end racism and sexism.
Cyberbullying: Feminine Vulnerability In Anonymous Spaces, 2016 The College at Brockport, State University of New York
Cyberbullying: Feminine Vulnerability In Anonymous Spaces, Christina A. Mahagan
In this paper, I examine the need for research on how cyberbullying and cyber victimization affect women and girls along with what tools women and girls use to cope with these affects. I also look at how ideas about the performance of gender and related societal norms exacerbate the problems of cyberbullying and cyber victimization for women and girls. In addition, I explore the theory that early lessons of gender affect identity and relationships in ways that matter in relation to cyberbullying and cyber victimization vulnerability, responses, and accessible networks of support.
Lesbians, Masculinities, And Privilege: The Privileging Of Gender And The Gendering Of Sexuality, 2016 The College at Brockport, State University of New York
Lesbians, Masculinities, And Privilege: The Privileging Of Gender And The Gendering Of Sexuality, Brooke E. Love
Though LGBTQ individuals, experiences, and communities have been increasingly recognized as valuable subjects of research, the existing body of research on and about this population is still significantly lacking. In a field so young and full of controversy, it is vital that research be done that gives voice and agency to LGBTQ individuals, their experiences and lifestyles. This paper will introduce readers to the concept of “female masculinity” and, specifically, the complicated relationships many lesbian identities have with different configurations of masculinity. I will introduce the concepts of “butch” lesbian identities and “femme” lesbian identities as well as their relation ...
Note From The Editor (Dv5), 2016 The College at Brockport, State University of New York
Note From The Editor (Dv5), Barbara Lesavoy
Dissenting Voices volume five showcases five diverse authors who employ traditional essay format to analyze an array of topics important to the Women and Gender Studies discipline. Opening the volume is a remarkable essay that uses a queer lens to examine ways concepts of female masculinity and male privilege operate in lesbian identity and lesbian relationships. A well-timed critique of cyberbullying in feminist spaces follows, where the author interrogates ways performance of gender norms exacerbates cyberbullying and cyber victimization among women and girls. Centering the volume is an important reading of women and the Black Lives Matter movement where the ...

“Reality” Tv: Portrayals Of Labor And Birth In A Mainstream Reality Series One Born Every Minute, 2016 Minnesota State University Mankato
“Reality” Tv: Portrayals Of Labor And Birth In A Mainstream Reality Series One Born Every Minute, Nicole Soley, Lauren Sobotta, Kyrsten Harper, Rebecca Rand
Journal of Undergraduate Research at Minnesota State University, Mankato
Today, the birthing process is predominantly medicalized in the United States. Compounding this phenomenon is the media, which has a strong influence on people’s perceptions, attitudes, and behavior, and can serve to reinforce cultural norms—specifically, mainstream media disproportionately promotes medicalized birth. The media often portrays labor and birth as a dangerous affair, and as a result, may contribute to the culture of fear around labor and birth. In this feminist, qualitative media analysis, we examined women’s experiences giving birth on a popular reality television series called One Born Every Minute. We analyzed how women’s births are ...
Fashion, Sexism, And The United States Federal Judiciary, 2016 NYU School of Law
Fashion, Sexism, And The United States Federal Judiciary, Charles E. Colman
The U.S. federal judiciary has frequently displayed a dismissive attitude toward "fashion," while simultaneously recognizing the great economic importance of clothing. As fashion was, from the formation of the United States until at least the late 1960s, associated primarily with the female sex, while judges during this time period were almost exclusively male, one naturally wonders whether the power dynamics of gender shaped the development of the law pertaining to fashion. There is good reason to believe that this has indeed been the case.
Into The Depths Of Reflexivity And Back Again—When Research Mirrors Personal Experience: A Personal Journey Into The Spaces Of Liminality, Katherine Janzen
The Qualitative Report
The context of this paper surrounds my Master’s thesis which was written in 2010 related to recovering crack cocaine addicted mothers who had lost custody of their children. Every qualitative thesis has a story attached to it—an impetus for engaging in the research. When the research combines sensitive topics and the research mirrors the experience of the researcher, decisions must be made considering the research processes and methods. This paper explores the reflexive processes that were employed in the 10 months preceding taking my first thesis course. Using the preface of my reflexive journal as data, three themes ...
Exposing The “Shadow Side”: Female-Female Competition In Jane Austen’S Emma, 2016 University of New Orleans
Exposing The “Shadow Side”: Female-Female Competition In Jane Austen’S Emma, Melissa M. Lyman
University of New Orleans Theses and Dissertations
Many critics have examined the shifting nature of female friendship in Jane Austen’s Emma from cultural and historical angles. However, a comprehensive scientific analysis of female-female alliance and competition in the novel remains incomplete. The Literary Darwinist approach considers the motivations of fictional characters from an evolutionary perspective, focusing primarily on human cognition and behaviors linked to reproductive success, social control, and survival. While overt physical displays of male competition are conspicuous in the actions of the human species and those of their closest primate relatives, female aggression is often brandished psychologically and indirectly, which makes for a much ...
