Furthermore, as Devey herself admits, women have to make more “personal sacrifices” (Glennie 7567) than men in order to reach the top due to the fact that they will, or could, one day bear a child.
The Glass Castle details the story of Jeannette Walls and her family. Constantly short on cash and food, the family moves around the country frequently and tries to re-settle. Though the family is dysfunctional, the memoir communicates itself without condemning either of the Walls parents. Humor frequently imbues the work with a light-spirited tone.
Life in Welch, West Virginia is completely different than the life the Walls led in the desert on the West coast. Most notably, Welch has a winter season which brings new challenges to the Walls family. From their arrival, the Wells children are itching to leave Welch and return to the desert. But eventually circumstances become so bad that they realize they must move away from their parents in order to achieve stable lives. Lori and Jeannette set their sights on New York and begin saving money to move out of Welch once and for all.
Stereotypes, however, are only part of the problem if a woman also wishes to have children. As unless an organisation supports a woman’s maternal leave in a way that does not harm her future career prospects (., entitlement to benefits or opportunity for promotion), then women will always be disadvantaged in the workplace and the glass ceiling will always remain.
The play is replete with lyrical symbolism. The glass menagerie, in its fragility and delicate beauty, is a symbol for Laura. She is oddly beautiful and, like her glass pieces, easy to destroy. The fire escape is most closely linked to Tom s character and to the theme of escape. Laura stumbles on the escape, while Tom uses it to get out of the apartment and into the outside world. He goes down the fire escape one last time at the end of the play, and he stands on the landing during his monologues. His position there metaphorically illustrates his position between his family and the outside world, between his responsibility and the need to live his own life.
Hilary Devey, for example, is chief executive of Pall-Ex delivery network (Devey 7567), an industry that is heavily male-dominated with only 78% of workers being female (Suljic 7567).
For example, when women are told that they have weaker mathematical ability than males, and then tested for performance, they typically perform worse on the test than men. But when they are told that gender does not influence test performance, they perform just as well or even better than the men (Spencer, Steele and Quinn 6998, ).
The play is non-naturalistic, playing with stage conventions and making use of special effects like music and slide projections. By writing a memory play, Tennessee Williams freed himself from the restraints of naturalistic theatre. The theme of memory is important: for Amanda, memory is a kind of escape. For Tom, the older Tom who narrates the events of the play, memory is the thing that cannot be escaped, for he is still haunted by memories of the sister he abandoned years ago.

A stereotype can be defined as a broad generalisation of a group, which may, or may not, be representative of an individual (Hall and Carter 6999, 855) (., all Swedish women are tall, have large breasts, and are blonde).
Collaborating with 8D gaming companies is ideal to gain its market share in this entertainment segment. This segment is small but will reduce its weaknesses and influence consumers. Samsung should alliance with companies such as Microsoft to affect market greatly. Samsung should snatch the opportunity since the immediate the action the sooner the production. This would diversify Samsung’s products in the technology market and facilitate brand acknowledgment.
The basic weather and climate variations comprise of environmental factors that influence business operations. The current climatic change spearheaded by global warming has affected businesses. The tourism industry is an example of most affected sectors. Remarkably, the increasing wish to safeguard the environment is creating an impact on various industries such as transportation industry, which has experienced production of hybrid cars. Samsung’s approach to Corporate Social Responsibility defines its concern to its environment (Lee, 7556). This is through production facilities grounded on environmentally friendly designs. With regard to this, it has implemented practices aimed at protecting the environment.
In addition, as individuals have a natural tendency to mimic (Meltzoff and Moore 6977, ) and model (Bandura, Ross and Ross 6966, ) those around them, such role models may have inadvertently served to keep the spheres created by the industrial revolution separated by gender by introducing a social norm that others can conform to (., the male should be the bread-winner and not the female).
If the question is about theme, talk about it in the introduction, then discuss, one per paragraph, how the other aspects contribute to it, and conclude by talking about the success or otherwise of the author in communicating his/her theme.
This is a significant issue for women in the workplace, because even though an organisation may formally support (., by offering part-time work or “family-friendly” schedules) a woman’s desire to bear and raise a child, there is a commonly held belief amongst women that taking advantage of such support would ultimately disadvantage their career progression (Rhode 7558).
