Female Genital Mutilation Controversy
The removal of external female genitalia has been part of a celebrated ritual in the lives of girls and women in some cultures and countries for centuries. Despite growing international campaign to abolish female genital mutilation (FGM), many still see this tradition as an effective and acceptable method of controlling women's attitudes toward sex and sexuality and of ensuring their virginity and suitability for marriage. An estimated 120 million girls and women have undergone FGM, and approximately 2 million procedures are performed annually on girls under the age of 11, most commonly performed in Africa, it is also practiced in

Female Friends vs. Male Friends
Everyone chooses who they will become friends with very early on in his or her life. If one is a male, he tends to choose a male friend over a female friend. On the other hand, if one is a female, she tends to choose a female friend over a male friend. Although many people choose a friend simply based on what common interests they share, others will just choose a friend just to have a friend. Female friends are by far the best kind of friend to have if one is a female herself. Having a female friend is more beneficial than having a male friend because female friends give better advice, relate better to another female, and have more things in common

â€œAnd Hereâ€™s to You, Mrs. Robinsonâ€¦â€ Female Sex Offenders: Itâ€™s Nothing to Sing About.
The stereotype is out there that in prison, the worst type of criminal is a sex offender, especially those that target children and teenagers. Often people will make comments like, â€œWait until they get to prison, then justice will be served.â€ Referring to the mistreatment that sex offenders are subjected to by other inmates. There is one type of sex offender that does not receive the same treatment. In fact, many donâ€™t even consider the perpetrator to be a sex offender at all.

Queen Jezebel, Elizabeth Bathory, Belle Gunness, Anne Bonny, and Mary Suratt; what do all of these women have in common? They were cold and ruthless criminals. Many of them we are very familiar with, even more so than male criminals. Why; because female criminals are far and few in between. According to recent LegalMatch case data from the last three months, the majority of individuals facing criminal charges are men who outnumber women by a ratio of 3.3 to 1.

Female Circumcision in Africa

Diversity: Dr. Saleem
There are an estimated 130 million girls and women alive today whose human rights have been violated by female genital mutilation/cutting (FGM/C). This harmful practice not only affects girls and women in Africa and the Middle East, where it is traditionally carried out, but also touches the lives of girls and women living in migrant communities in industrialized countries. Although collaborative advocacy has worked over recent decades has generated widespread commitment to end this practice, success in eliminating FGM/C has been limited, with some significant expectations.

Female friendships on the other hand, are almost exactly the same, just like the male. Females can also be looked upon as a sister to others because they know how to support, comfort, talk, share things the right way, and understands your strengths and weaknesses. They have that mentality of helping out others in need and know how to understand you without being made fun of when showing your soft side. Even though most females are

Person? A Flash Movie” by John Riviello, this may come to mind while you’re reading it. In the reading they used an example where an image of an original Barbie doll was on one side and on the other side was an image of supermodel Laetita Casta. They had started making changes to the supermodel’s body to make her look similar to the Barbie doll on the opposite side. At the end of the experiment, Laetita Casta didn’t oh so pretty. People shouldn’t change their bodies to look like something that isn’t real.

What substantive differences exist between the performance of male and female leaders? What perceived differences exist between the performance of male and female leaders? What do the answers to these questions mean for females that aspire to leadership positions?
A fair amount of research has explored sex differences in business leadership. Although mostly survey research, a number of themes appear consistently, suggesting that there are some substantive differences between men and women with regard to leadership performance. For example, with regard to global leadership, research by Javidan et al. (2016) suggest that women demonstrate stronger leadership

On January 23rd, 1849, Elizabeth Blackwell graduated from Geneva Medical College and became the first female medical doctor in the United States. After graduating, she traveled to London and Paris where she studied to be a midwife, but what she really wanted to do was become a surgeon. In 1851 Elizabeth went back to New York City with the dream of being a surgeon gone, because she had become blind in one eye. Upon her return, Elizabeth started up her own practice but had very few patients because of her being a woman and many doctors did not want to help her because she was a woman.

In addition to information on annual income, this study also looks at hourly wage data, which is a more precise measure as the earnings data series takes into account the price of labour as well as quantity (i.e. individuals’ work/leisure preferences). This study looks at the variables of race, highest achieved level of education as well as age to examine the existence of a wage gap. Like other studies, we have found that males have a higher wage in each of these areas, with females earning an average

Female Genital Mutilation
I first learned about this topic when I was watching American Next Top Model. There was this 21 year old Somalian girl who had made a confession about being circumcised at the age of 13. She began crying because of the pain that she endured and the fact that she would never know what it feels like to be with a man. Once I read the African Rites of Passage and learned that that procedure was done a lot in as a ritual. I couldnâ€™t help, but research more information about female genital mutilation.

ANATOMY OF THE FEMALE REPRODUCTIVE SYSTEM
The female reproductive system consists of external and internal structures. Other anatomic structures that affect the female re- productive system include the hypothalamus and pituitary gland of the endocrine system.
The external genitalia (the vulva) include two thick folds of tissue called the labia majora and two smaller lips of delicate tissue called the labia minora, which lie within the labia majora. The upper por- tions of the labia minora unite, forming a partial covering for the clitoris, a highly sensitive organ composed of erectile tissue. Be- tween the labia minora, below and posterior to the clitoris

The power dynamics model is one that integrates the aspects of the power being utilized, the leader’s potential energy and the power that has already been mastered within the context of leadership. According to the theory, the potential power available to the leader emanates from the two-dimensional co-existence perpetuated among the people relating with one another. The theory maintains the position that, a person’s aggregate power is evident from their ability to influence the conduct of the others, especially the led.

Female Artists during the Medieval Ages
In the extremely hierarchical medieval society the social classes differed greatly from each other in their legal rights, economic circumstances and modes of living. Feudal society consisted of three classes, the Worshipers, Warriors, and the Workers. With few exceptions, women were ranked according to their husband’s or father’s status. They rarely achieved any status outside of their relationship with men as wives, mothers, and daughters. For this reason, it is interesting to explore how and why certain women were able to live separately from men in convents and create works of artistic value that survive today.

So, the previous question would allow me to investigate whether the stereotype was true or not. Then, I would ask if they had been affected by the dangers of eating or mental disorders. Do they believe the disorders are caused by body dissatisfaction caused by media influences? I would conclude my interview by asking if the interviewee would like to add any information. Finally, before leaving, I think it’s important to thank them for their cooperation.

â€œâ€™The Yellow Wallpaperâ€™ is a striking story of female confinement and escape,â€ according to Sandra M. Gilbert and Susan Gubar. This story exemplifies the domesticated, male-dominant treatment of women in the nineteenth-century through the eyes of a narrator undergoing treatment for what is presently known as post-partum depression. In The Yellow Wallpaper, there are many images and aesthetics used to portray the narratorâ€™s physical and symbolic confinement. This paper will also examine the narratorâ€™s reaction to her confinement, or her â€œescapeâ€, as well as the cause for such bizarre behavior.

Reasons for early marriages
The main reasons girls are forced to marry early are for the parents to acquire wealth and to be respected in the community (Ondiwo, 2002). Within the Maasai community the male spouses are likely to be a few years older than the girls; some may be more than twice their age, and most of them are wealthy.

Never before have women gained as much equality as they are gaining now. Slowly, since the women right movements, they have moved into various area that were once totally foreign to them such as politics, economy and business. A question then arises whether or not women can joint and measure up to their male counterparts in the field of military, as they do in other fields. People tend either to agree or disagree on this issue. Some, who doubt women's ability, don't know where to stand and take a middle position.

A lasting piece of literature is a work that accurately reflects the role of the people during certain time period eloquently. This is best perpetuated in the short novel Kitchen written by Banana Yoshimoto and the play The Importance of Being Ernest by Oscar Wilde. While the main characters Mikage in the novella and Gwendolyn in the play reflect the shifting role of women in the Japanese society and Victorian era respectively, Yuichi and Algernon, on the other hand, however reflects the role of men through unconventional means.

Her story revolves around her internal desires for romantic love and to become "the complement of the male romantic sensibility"(41). And as in Cinderella or Sleeping Beauty, the romantic heroine's story ends when her one true love sweeps her away into the happily ever after of domesticity (42).In contrast, the modern day plot of Bone, the heroine in Dorothy Allison's Bastard out of Carolina, does not end so
