Gender Bias in U.S Court System
Intro #1
Throughout U.S history women had been known as properties belonging to a man. Women are seen as objects while the men are seen as an individual self. It took many years before the U.S Government amends and adopted new laws in order for women to be label as equals’ of men. One of the biggest movements in U.S history was the Feminist Movement in the 1960’s where groups of women fought to gain equality for women in the life, workplace, home and also to bring awareness to violence against women. Shame on all those women of the 2000’s who now use these laws to their advantage in family, civil and criminal court to bring men to their knees, and to erase fathers from the lives of their children. False allegations by women of child abuse, domestic violence, and stalking are almost never questioned by judges for fear of being politically incorrect. Intro #2 In the late 1980’s there was a controversial murder case where two people, brother and sister both of whom committed the same crime. They were tried and found guilty of murder of a woman who was the girlfriend of the sister’s ex-husband. What's most shocking is the sentence that was handed to them. As Marc Angelucci puts it, a Time columnist writer, “She gets 10 years in prison. He gets the death sentence.” This is just one of many absurd cases of discrimination against men in the U.S Court system.

...Business Ethics – Term Paper March 21/13 Discrimination Introduction Discrimination is defined as distinguishing something from something else (i.e. don’t hire him because he has no experience). Unjustified discrimination is distinguishing something from something else on a basis that is not justified (i.e. don’t hire him because he is black). The term discrimination commonly replaces the term unjustified discrimination in business, philosophy, psychology and day-to-day community life. In a just and fair society, such as we Canadians aspire to, a job applicant’s race, ethnic origin, colour, religion, sex, age, orientation, mental ability, or physical condition should not disadvantage them in career choices or job competitions. If a short Asian female firefighter can do the job, she should get the job. Conversely she should not expect to receive concessions that are not available to all; that is in effect also discrimination. Unfortunately, discrimination often arises in business in regards to hiring, job placement, wage, and promotion. Affirmative Action Ideally, discrimination should be of no concern at all; everyone should have an equal opportunity to anything. In a perfect world a hiring manager would not have to think thoughts such as, “They are disabled, they are women, they are aboriginal,” and would only think, “This person will be perfect for the job because….” Unfortunately this may never completely happen. For example if a person in a wheelchair applies...

...Battling Discrimination at Work ​Discrimination at work is unfair. The reason why is because everybody is a human being and everyone should be treated equal. Companies don’t always get the best workers because they tend to pick what they think will work, when in reality if they took the time to study them they would realize how the person works and or who they really are. ​First of all everyone should be treated equal because everyone is the same, some people might be short, others tall, some skinny and some fat but that doesn’t matter because deep inside we are all the same. Also people should be treated equally so that everyone has the chance to do something in life. Some employers hire individuals based on their ability to get a job done. Some employers hire people based on their qualifications and their experiences concerning a particular job. However, there are employers out there that hire someone based purely on how the person looks. Whether it be based on their skin color, age, gender, or sexual orientation. Discrimination is everywhere no matter where we look, but it should stop because it is just not fair, everyone should be treated equal. ​Companies do not always get the best workers, they tend to go for the people who are good looking and people they think will bring more business and costumers. For example a lot of Mexican people come to this country to become successful and do something about their lives, but the system of the united states decides to block......

...Job Discrimination: Its Nature * Discrimination in its root meaning refers to the act of distinguishing one object from another. * In modern usage, the term refers to "wrongful discrimination," or distinguishing among people on the basis of prejudice instead of individual merit. * Discrimination in employment involves three basic elements: * It must be a decision not based on individual merit. * The decision must derive from racial or sexual prejudice. * The decision must have a harmful impact on the interest of employees Forms of Discrimination: Intentional and Institutional Aspects * Discriminatory acts can be categorized according to the extent to which they are intentional and institutionalized. * An act may be part of the isolated behavior of an individual:  * Intentionally discriminates based on personal prejudice. * An act may be part of the routine, institutionalized behavior of a group. * The act must intentionally discriminate out of personal prejudice. * An act may be part of the isolated behavior of a single individual who unintentionally discriminates because he or she uncritically adopts the practices and stereotypes of his or her society * An act may be part of the systematic routine of a group that unintentionally discriminates because group members uncritically incorporate the discriminatory practices of society.

...Discrimination The term discrimination refers to a distinct treatment of something or someone, based on a predisposed judgment. Discrimination is the act of being bias or in favor of something based on factors which make up the persons social and physical being, for example someone’s class, job, appearance, race, age or sex. Why does discrimination exist? Discrimination occurs because individuals or groups feel they are superior to others; therefore try to create prejudices and stereotypes which bring another group down. An example of this would be a case of racism in the 1800’s where white boys would not let black children join in with their games such as football due to the fact they were of different ethnicity. This could be because they were raised by racist parents who do not want their own children mixing with other races, or simply because they feel threatened by the black children’s talent and athleticism so do not let them join in at all. I believe that as long as there are negative human qualities such as hate, anger, jealousy and envy in the world, discrimination will always exist as people judge their own opinions to be more accurate and do not accept the views of others. This is also caused by ignorance and naivety with the common “I am superior to you” attitude that a small percentage of the human race still holds. There is such competition in the world today that discrimination has come to surface because people are always looking for a step up, or a......

...Discrimination Against Women in the Workplace SOC203 March 25, 2013 Discrimination against Women in the Workplace Although some of the worst employment discrimination was eliminated by the Civil Rights Act in 1964, many women continue to undergo unfair and unlawful discrimination in the workplace. Even though women have come a long way, they are still being discriminated against in certain fields of work. High-end jobs, most commonly large companies and medical fields, continue to discriminate against women even though they have the same job qualifications as men. This qualifies as a social problem because women deal with discrimination in the workplace especially large corporations and also in the medical field. Many women have the same qualifications but still are paid less than most men. There are many different ways in which women are discriminated against in the workplace. The exclusion of women altogether solely due to their gender is a now rare example of how women are discriminated against. Although women have gained overall access to the workplace, sex discrimination still persists in additional ways. There multiple examples of potentially unlawful gender discrimination that women face. Hiring and firing are the first two problems women often face within the workplace. An example of this is woman applying for a job in which they have experience and excellent qualifications, but are not hired because some of the company's clients are more......

...Harassment and Discrimination BUS:311 Business Law I Instructor: Marla Muse 9/26/2013 Many of us who are a part of the workforce wake up every day and think about what needs to be accomplished at work today? Work can be frustrating and sometimes enjoyable, at no point should an individual feel that their security is in jeopardy or also that they are being verbally attacked because of their gender, race, or age. With providing facts this will prove that there the law protects the working force from harassment and discrimination in the workplace. Most of us who have jobs realize that there are times where either harassment or discrimination takes place. Even in today’s modern world these situations still presents itself. The focus of my argument is to show that these acts do not go unseen or unheard from a legal standpoint. Harassment and discrimination is highly illegal and very unethical within the workplace or any business. There are laws out there that protect individuals who are subjected to this type of behavior, so much so that companies spend a vast amount of time and money trying to educate employees about harassment and discrimination. My stance on this topic is very clear, these acts should not occur and the law is fair in the consequences that follow when a business is involved in a harassment or discrimination act. I understand that every company cannot speak for each employee; however there should be policies and procedures that are addressed. At no......

...Discrimination against women First and for most let’s look into the meaning of the word discrimination. “Discrimination is define as a positive or negative attitude toward an individual based on his/her religious, race or other groups”(Webster new Word Dictionary). Despite numerous laws implemented to help stop discrimination in society, discrimination still exists among society today. People will denied this allegation, however if discrimination did not exists, why are there laws set in place to prevent it from happening? The problem with discrimination is that it is not just limited to races or ethnic groups; it also exists among gender preference, and economic equality. People are constantly generating questions around the topic of discrimination, but the truth of the matter is that discrimination will never be abolished, it is here to stay. The reason being is that discrimination is based on the opinion, and beliefs of each individual. Everyone has created in their own mind what they belief should be the accepted norm, therefore anything outside of that becomes a target for discrimination. The discrimination topic I choose today is women discrimination. Discrimination can begin at any stage of a women life. It has been noted that in some countries like China, people use diagnostic ultrasound to find the sex of the baby. If they are pregnant with a girl they will terminate the pregnancy or give her up for adoption at the time of birth. Some countries believe......

...Discrimination and Stereotypes In Everyday Life Discrimination and stereotypes are a huge problem in the world today. This is not a problem that has recently started occurring, for there have been examples of this hundreds of years ago. Discrimination can root from not just skin color, but age, ethnicity, and many other factors as well. Discrimination is apparent in all races and ethnicities. It is a sick problem that many people have to face while looking for a job and even everyday life. The fact that people believe that someone is not capable of a task is disgusting and absurd. The biggest culprits of discrimination and stereotypes are children and teens. However, in their heads they mean it as a joke rather than being mean. They may think it is funny, but it can seriously hurt someone's feelings even if they laugh at it. The worst part about children discriminating is that they are most likely learning it from their parents. Studies have been done to prove that discrimination is not something people are born with, but it is inherited. As children grow up making stereotypes and discriminating they may become comfortable expressing such feelings which may lead to racism. High school is a huge mixing pot of races and ethnicities so discrimination and stereotypes are very prevalent here. Most of the time they are just jokes, however even if the person that the stereotype is directed to laughs they may be severely hurt. Gender is also a big factor......

...Discrimination has been around as long as humans have been in existence. It has enslaved millions and millions it has forced entire tribes to migrate from state to state. It has locked up countless number of innocent people and it stripped the right to vote for many, even when it was promised to them. It even denied entry into this country. Skin color, gender or even social class greatly affected the way one was treated. But during the 1800s it was mainly skin color that determined how you were going to be treated. If you were white then you were always treated with great respect. Equality is a very simple concept but why doesn’t everyone always get it? My mother always used to stress this to me “Treat others the way you want them to treat you”. We all want to live in a world of perfect harmony and interaction. But for equality to truly exist everyone has to sacrifice some of there pride and present respect in the same manner they wish to receive it in. As simple as the concept of it may be, the meaning of it however never seems to be exact not to even mention unachievable. Whenever philosophers, lawyers or professors elaborate on the “principle” of equality, no conclusion can ever be drawn. If you were to compare two toy dolls from the same make and the same exact model, they both will look similar or equal in proportion. However in reality there is no such thing because every object however similar they seem, can be perceived from a different angle because the objects or...

...The criminal justice system uses a lot of terminology that can be hard to understand, two words commonly used are disparity and discrimination. In this essay I will define and give current examples of the terminology. I will also explain why knowing the difference between the two is important in the criminal justice system. Disparity and discrimination are similar terms. You might be asking yourself what is disparity? Disparity can be defined as a lack of similarity or equality. Diversity can be defined as the condition of having or being composed of differing elements. One current and highly controversial form of discrimination that we are facing worldwide is same sex marriages. No matter if you are for it or against it you have seen or been affected in some way by the topic. By not allowing same sex marriages to be validated we are discriminating against the gay and lesbian community. There are still many forms of discrimination that take place in today’s society; unfortunately a lot of discrimination is racially based. We also see a lot of gender based discrimination; typically men are still paid more than women for the exact same job. America is the most racially diverse demographic nation in the world. Many people working the criminal justice systems are aware of the racial disparity and would like to counteract it. Racial disparity in the criminal justice system exists when the proportion of the racial or ethnic group within control of the system is greater than......

...Akwinder Kaur Professor: Monica Tapiarene English 100 10/30/2014 Discrimination Discriminations against people has been around for so many years. People don’t like another person because they just look different. More and more people are discriminated because of their religion, disability, skin color and many more injustices. Once an innocent person gets discriminated by someone, than the person many turns bad too, and that person wants to discriminate others. Person gets rejected by people because people think he/she does not fit in certain groups and humans get aggressive and show evil behavior towards everyone. People also are hating because they are not perfect and they have weird facial features and body. The creature in Marry Shelley’s Frankenstein Novel, his creator Victor Frankenstein hated and abandoned the creature just because he the creature didn’t look like a normal human. It was interesting to research about this topic because I will learn how human are discriminated in so many different ways. And how people get abandoned because they are not normal like a normal human and because of other differences. I have already known about this topic, “Kid Bullied to Leave School Because He Wasn’t Black Enough” is how people are hate one another just because they are different from them and doesn’t like like them.

...been the primary targets of the discrimination in this society exercised not only by governmental institutions in this country, but also by the majority of the white population in this country. With the end of the Jim Crow era, proponents of white supremacy were now faced with a new dilemma, how to continue the oppression of African Americans in this country in a “post-racial” society. American society began to be seen as a “color-blind” environment, which made the discrimination of individuals based on race non-permissible. Discrimination now had taken a new form, instead of discriminating against African Americans based on race; supporters of white supremacy now criminalized and labeled them as criminals. Michelle Alexander in her book The New Jim Crow, explains how this new form of discrimination continued the same oppression towards African Americans that was exercised in the Jim Crow era and was now “justified” by discriminating them on the basis of criminal behavior. Through the creation of this new system of criminalization, Michelle Alexander explains how the stigma and discriminatory legislation that followed which she terms as the “cruel hand” perpetuated the marginalization of African American individuals and inhibited their social and economic progress. As long as there are proponents of white supremacy and as long as racist sentiments continue to permeate social institutions in this country, we will continue to see discrimination and marginalization of minority...

...Equality and Discrimination Hundreds of millions of people suffer from discrimination in the world of work. This not only violates a basic human right, but has wider social and economic consequences which perpetuate poverty and inequality while worsening social tensions. Lessening discrimination could help the world dramatically decrease poverty and promote decent work for all. Unions can play a crucial role in fighting discrimination nationally and internationally through political action and collective bargaining. But, their leaders and members are themselves subject to discrimination as workers are penalized for joining unions or participating in union activities. However, by better understanding discrimination in its many forms and devising strategies to combat it, unions could help eliminate discrimination and, at the same time, strengthen their organizations. What is discrimination? Discrimination in employment and occupation takes many forms, and occurs in all kinds of work settings. It entails treating people differently because of certain characteristics, such as race, colour or sex, which results in the impairment of equality of opportunity and treatment. In other words, discrimination results in, and reinforces, inequalities. With discrimination the freedom of human beings to develop their capabilities and to choose and pursue their professional and personal aspirations is restricted without regard for ability. Because of discrimination, skills and......

...Sample CONSOLIDATED CHICKEN PRODUCTS Sex discrimination in the workplace comes with many different faces. In its most basic form, it involves outright exclusion of women, solely by reason of their gender. However, even where women have gained access to the workplace, sex discrimination may persist in other ways. Examples include identification of particular jobs as “man–only” or “woman–only” or through the existence of a “glass ceiling” that ensures women will only go so far on the corporate ladder (Brayton Purcell 2010). Reasonable basis for discriminating Based on the case study I believe that the company was discriminating against the women with regards to pay. The analysis stated that all women performing the same functions as men were paid about $3.68 less than their counterparts. I know that this study was based back in the 1980’s were it was common for men to make more than women doing the same jobs and discrimination was shun upon at that time and if the employee felt like that there was the door. Also in the office jobs (secretaries) the company had a labor grade system and the office staff which by the way were all women where listed under the labor grade 1 which paid an average wage of $7.05-$10.50 per hour but the women were paid $7.15-$7.35 per hour well below the labor grade. Discrimination is clearly seen here because the organization didn’t pay their women employees the labor grade they had listed. The company needed to......
