DRAFT WITH OUTLINE
Working Women As children we are brought up to have the future in mind. What we will have as fully functioning, working adults in society, what we will do as those working adults, and who we will have next to us on our journey. Children of both genders say firefighters, policemen, doctors, actors, astronauts, president, jobs that are glorified to be fun, exciting, difficult, and high paying. As children grow they start to realize that there are walls blocking them from their younger dreams. Boys are told they can do anything they set their mind to, girls are too but they are also told they must be married, have a family, and make a home among many other things that are considered womanly. This is where young girls meet the first glass ceiling when fathers, mothers, peers, and schools tell them their place is in the home and not in the workforce. A glass ceiling is defined in Merriam-Webster as “an unfair system or set of attitudes that prevents some people (such as women or people of a certain race) from getting the most powerful jobs.”

The first glass ceiling women break through is the cultural norms ceiling. This ceiling says that a woman’s work is in the home and supporting a family. When women were needed in the workforce in the early 1940s this ceiling was shattered. Women took factory jobs, they were wielding and making supplies for the war, they were truck drivers, served as radio operators, each military branch started to incorporate women help beyond needing nurses. The fact that women gained a foot hole in the work force was great however it was sad to see the gain lost when soldiers returning from war were given their old jobs and careers back and women were forced out (Women in WWII). Women started to move from the traditional norm that they belong in the household. Women are now taking on roles…...

Breast Feeding

...Viola Ngandu WOST-B399. November, 20th 2011 Breastfeeding Breastfeeding is the most precious gift a mother can give her baby. Breast feeding is natural and healthier for the baby. The bond the mother and child get when they breast feed is amazing. Breast milk helps the infant with their health, their bone structure, and their immunity. Breast milk contains growth factors and antibodies which help the baby grow and protect the baby from illness such as ear infections, allergies, diarrhea, and other serious illnesses. The first milk which comes from a mother is yellowish in color, and it is called colostrum; it has antibodies that protect the baby from infections. The antibodies found in breast milk cannot be found in formula. Breast milk comes in three different types; colostrum, transitional milk and mature milk. Colostrum (0 to 5 days after birth) is high in protein, low in fat; it also helps the baby’s bowels to move early and often. Transitional (5 to 10 days) is the amount of sugar, fat and calories increases. Mature milk (after 10 days it is produced) is high in protein, fat and calories. The white milk comes later after a few days and its temperature and texture is just right for the baby. Breast milk is easier to digest for the baby than the cow milk. Breastfeeding is a great method for feeding the baby and it offers many benefits for both the mother and the baby. It is cost effective to breast feed, offers convenience, and it has many......

The Origins and Development of the English Language (Textbook)

...lines from Chaucer’s House of Fame, for instance, an erudite eagle explains to Chaucer what speech really is: 5 Soune ys noght but eyre ybroken And every spech that ys yspoken, Lowde or pryvee, foule or faire, In his substaunce ys but aire; For as flaumbe ys but lyghted smoke, Ryght soo soune ys aire y-broke. But this may be in many wyse, Of which I wil the twoo devyse: Of soune that cometh of pipe or harpe. the middle english period (1100–1500) 10 15 121 For when a pipe is blowen sharpe The aire ys twyst with violence And rent. Loo, thys ys my sentence. Eke, when men harpe strynges smyte, Whether hyt be moche or lyte, Loo, with the stroke the ayre to-breketh And right so breketh it when men speketh: Thus wost thou wel what thinge is speche. Now compare Chaucer’s English, much like our own, with that of the following excerpt from the Bruce: 5 Þan wist he weill þai wald him sla, And for he wald his lord succour He put his lif in aventur And stud intill a busk lurkand Quhill þat þe hund com at his hand, And with ane arrow soyn hym slew And throu the wod syne hym withdrew. Scots needs to be translated to be easily understood: 5 Then he knew well they wished to slay him, And because he wished to succor his lord He put his life in fortune’s hands And stood lurking in a bush While the hound came to his hand, And with one arrow immediately slew him And through the wood afterward withdrew himself.

Lilith

...Wost 280 – Women Studies Professor Beth Rudnick Lenda J. Wilson January 19, 2010 The Woman Lililth Beware for the small male child. Lilith flies around at night seeking his life by kidnap or strangulation. She refuses male leadership and weakens them by seducing them at night as they lie in dream state. Lilith is she an image of truth, fiction, legend or just a lie? The bible scripture holds firm that she is nothing more than a Jewish myth. In contrast while Eve was taken from Adam side, Lilith is believed to be taken from the dirt right beside him. The Christian faith supports the belief presented in the book of Genesis concerning Adam and Eve. Eve was Adam’s first and only wife. Research of the Jewish commentary relates Lilith to Adam as his first wife who was band from Eden, not because of marital problems, but for her blatant disrespect to Gad, himself. This has always been taboo in the Jewish culture. She became the wife of Satan and was responsible for male genocide. Well we had to blame someone. Eve is quite the opposite of Lilith. Adam boasts in the book of Genesis that “she is bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh”. Her perfection is hard for any woman to live up to, because women’s tragic behavior was always resulted in immediate condemnation. We believe what we want to believe according to our culture. However, the Christian faith would not give way to any suggestion that theologians missed significant details of the life of Adam....
