American Women During Wwii - 1,808 words
... during the war years for many men hoped that marriage would defer conscription to the war. This alone suggests that women's roles as wives and mothers were still dominant during the war because the nation witnessed a 25 percent rise in the population aged five and under. The popularity of marriage and the traditional gender roles that marriage carried, was exploited during the war.

President Roosevelt soon denied the OWI was being used for propaganda , yet only months after the OWI was formed, wartime propaganda began to likened women's war work to domestic chores.

Positive Changes In The Workplace - 1,255 words
"Hi ho, hi ho, it's off to work we go." So sang the charmingly quirky dwarfs in Disney's Snow White. In many ways they stood for the hopes of mid-century Americans: Hold down a secure job, produce your share of goods or products, do what the boss says, go with the program, and earn enough to support a comfortable lifestyle for yourself and your family. Things haven't really changed all that much--or have they? Only a few of us are currently involved in any type of manual labor or production. In fact, more than 80% of the workforce is in a service position according to most of the information we receive in our Human Resource office.

The Family - 546 words
For the last two decades, Chinese families have gone through a lot of changes. Much of the old structure and many of the old values of the traditional family have been replaced with a modern twist. The stereotyped view of the Chinese family was that of a large family, with several generations and immediate families all living together, being self sufficient, providing child and elderly care. Some of this is no longer true for the modern Chinese family that mainly has a structure of a husband and a wife living with their children, and sometimes with their parents. Only a small number of Chinese families may have relatives living nearby. Because of that the Chinese family no longer performs th ...
