Womens Relationships With Their Governing Electorates.

3401 words - 14 pages

As we've undoubtedly seen throughout the waves of time, the relationships between women and their governing electorates can be deemed as both fragile as well as deceptive. When analyzing a society in which common practice can be considered the imposition of values and norms (targeted towards women), couldn't it be argued that the state may in fact play the greatest role of all? Isn't it (to some degree) the state that governs and herds its subordinate society's practices via the implementation of laws as well as encouraging active participation from all players? It's a most perplexing spectacle to witness a government 'hard' at work while wearing a smug mask of supposed equality when on many levels, its plain to see that; their conscious eased by loose morals barely supports the perpetual shroud they present. Some governing bodies even go so far as to state that women enjoy their suppressed existence under their male counterparts. It's a well documented fact that most systems of government can't uphold themselves without the support of its patrons, yet how can it be deemed 'rational' to justify belief in a state that's left you behind?The series of sickly events in which the most fundamental women's rights have been cast aside by their governing electorates only begs the question(s):To what degree do political bodies or factions impose an unnecessarily immense level of unjustified legislation over women (both past and present)? How can these injustices be properly addressed to prevent further occurrences, which only result in the suppression of a fully capable unit of persons? What type of mindset must an electorate body encompass to allow for such degradation to be projected unto its subordinates?Within a world hell-bent on the exploitation and extinguishment of apparent terrorism, it's difficult for the individual to stand up and be heard speaking on an issue not directly related to that in focus. Not only does the individual suffer the hardships of ignorance, as various groups often find themselves being sucked in via the undertow. Oftentimes, these groups or factions are comprised solely of women protesting the gaping bias under which they find themselves living. But in an effort to stand up and be counted, many women find themselves shunned, silenced, and screaming into the dark. Yet today, these once shunned voices are finding themselves raised to new levels of amplification via the implementation of various agencies touting their alternative mission statement. Could it be said that these definitive groups erected with the sole purpose of liberating women from unfair and improperly imposed legislation, are alone responsible for these cries being heard? To a significant degree, yes, but the largest fire is still ignited with the spark of a single match. The 'single match' metaphorically describes women (as defined by gender) and their projected demands for rights and privileges, deemed necessity in sustaining a livable existence. These...
