What Disney Teaches

Although they were out for the blood of anybody who was not an Amazon, it could be told in all seriousness that men had it worse. As in “secret experimentation camps created without Diana’s knowledge because they were too horrible even for her ” worse, in Flashpoint. A particularly extreme and unpopular example was the New 52 arc that revolved around the revelation that the Amazons reproduced by abducting, raping, and killing men, and then sold the boy children that resulted to Hephaestos as slaves although he then treated them pretty well.

My feminist dating story starts in my sixth-grade classroom, as I watched my first major crush, Chris, ask my best friend, Erica, if she would “go out” with him.

After researching all wedding traditions there are three that earn the top obsolete, sexist and promoting inequality — engagement rings, bridal showers and name change. There are three reasons why the tradition of women adopting their spouses names exists. The second reasons exist because before paternity testing existed, the only way to prove a child was the rightful heir to a man was through name. Without the fathers name, the kid was considered a bastard.

The only way to get his name was for the mother to be married to the father. Marriage being the only option for a secure life for women. None of these reasons exist anymore. The third reason name change exist was for inheritance reasons. The legal, non-bastard kid had to have his fathers name to legally claim his inheritance, title and property. The mother for a long time, even with the husbands name, had no rights to inheriting any of her dowry or family estate, it all passed to her son who also shared the family name.

This reason also no longer exist. Here are the modern reasons why women chose to take their husbands name: Where do I begin with these reasons. This might be one of the worst reasons behind changing it.

Too short of a time period for this trend to be the result of genetic disposition alone. To review, the past 60 years have seen more unmarried women and more of them engaged in sexual activity, leading more of them to become pregnant, even as fewer married women today get pregnant or give birth. Shotgun marriage has declined, and over the past 40 years declining rates of unintended pregnancy among unmarried women and rising acceptability of unwed childbearing have led to fewer abortions.

Rising unwed pregnancies, declining shotgun marriage, and falling abortion produced more unwed births. All of those trends increased the share of births to unmarried women. How important were each of these changes in raising the share of births that occur to unmarried women? We can roughly simulate counterfactual scenarios in which some factors changed as they actually did while others are kept at their early s levels. In Figure 14, the top line shows the estimated increase in the share of births that were to unwed mothers from the early s to the late s, an increase from 8 percent to 43 percent.

Many people might be inclined to see this rise and attribute it to an increase in pregnancy among single women. But the next line down indicates that this factor is a minor one. It shows that the share of births to unwed mothers would still have risen to 36 percent if the nonmarital pregnancy rate had stayed as low as it was in the early s while everything else changed—the share of women who were married, marital pregnancy rates, marital abortion rates, nonmarital abortion rates, and shotgun marriage rates.

Jewish feminism is a movement that seeks to make the religious, legal, and social status of Jewish women equal to that of Jewish men. Feminist movements, with varying approaches and successes, have opened up within all major branches of Judaism. Various versions of feminist theology exist within the Jewish community. Some of these theologies promote the idea that it is important to have a feminine characterisation of God within the siddur Jewish prayerbook and service.

In , Rita Gross published the article “Female God Language in a Jewish Context” Davka Magazine 17 , which Jewish scholar and feminist Judith Plaskow considers “probably the first article to deal theoretically with the issue of female God-language in a Jewish context”. The experience of praying with Siddur Nashim [the first Sabbath prayer book to refer to God using female pronouns and imagery] For the first time, I understood what it meant to be made in God’s image.

To think of God as a woman like myself, to see Her as both powerful and nurturing, to see Her imaged with a woman’s body, with womb, with breasts — this was an experience of ultimate significance. Was this the relationship that men have had with God for all these millennia? How wonderful to gain access to those feelings and perceptions.
