G roup 8 The Role Women Play presentation
Article Analysis “Story of an hour” tells us about the woman who underwent a dramatic incident about her husbands death and finally died of heart attack. ◎ She had died of grief that kills. ◎ We can see this story as western women’s sadness of being constrained by men.
“Lost Lives of Women” tells another story about eastern world. ◎ Women equals to men’s belongings. ◎ Men own many concubines who would be discarded away once men lose interests.
◎ There are still many gender issues prop out every day and it seems that there is no solution to the problem.
Issue Discussion Labor force of women ◎ World War I leads to the shortage of labor due to men were sent to the battlefront. ◎ Western women’s status is keep rising by feminist campaigns.
◎ Until eastern countries become colonized by western explorers. ◎ Women have the chance to learn, to think, to challenge and change the old thinking.
Opinions of Taiwan Society ◎ UN Asia-Pacific Human Development Report pointed out that women in Asia- Pacific area lack powers of politics and economy.
◎ Women in Taiwan face dilemmas when they try to challenge higher positions. ◎ Men in Taiwan should adjust themselves to those new thoughts--a person's value can't be affected by his/her gender.
Difference between Western and Eastern cultures: the female military Thomas Chiu, a student from the University of Sydney. His opinion: There has been a significant increase of women serving in the military over the past century…
more women serving in the military ---a change for the better. However, in Taiwan, female military is not been paid highly attention to yet. The ratio of male generals to female generals is approximately 1400:4 in our history Taiwanese commonly see female military as tomboys and lacking of feminine temperament.
Self Reflection The basic problem is still there: MEN controlled almost all power and materials.
In Formosa Television’s film, the head of every company or ring are male, and the famous cartoon Doraemon has three boys but only a girl as leading character.
