Question;Films/Clips----The Life and Times of Rosie the Riveter1. How did the propaganda films make connections between domestic labor andwomen's job skills in the industrial workplace? Why did the films make thisconnection?2. What backgrounds did these women come from before the war?3. What sort of labor segregation did they experience, both with regards to race and togender?4. After the war, what were the women war workers expected to do? What did theworkers themselves expect? Did they resist expectations that they would give up theirwork?5. What did these women do with the rest of their lives?Having it all? responses to Sandbergs book Lean In:Given my Chinese mothers Tiger Mom tendencies and the having-it-all zeitgeist, the phrasewasnt so out of place. But it struck a conflicted chord in me. Since Sheryl Sandbergs bookLean In came out earlier this year, I have become an enthusiastic disciple of her movement.Ive repeated the title phrase to countless friends, joined a Lean In circle on Facebook FB, anddeveloped minor lumbar problems from all the leaning Ive been doing at work. But I oftenwonder whether I am embracing the right leadership qualities.Sandberg glorifies traditionally male characteristicsoutspokenness, credit-taking, andconstant presence in the work environment. These values may be linked with individualprofessional success, but do they actually translate to success for society as a whole? Lost inthe debate about how and how much we should be leaning in, we miss the point. Rather thantelling women to match mens behavior, we should be encouraging everyone to lean back, toemulate a more feminine leadership style that is better correlated with societys well-being.(Catherine Vaughan, a 2008 graduate of Harvard College)Rather than telling women to be more confident and ambitious, I think that it is moreimportant to talk about how workplaces need to adapt to the whole person, both womenand men. This way everyone can strike a better balance between working and spending timewith family, friends, and their community.Women have caught up with men in terms of education. In fact, in the United States and anumber of other countries, women now actually surpass men in educational achievement.So there is not a problem with female achievement. The problem enters in when young adultstry to balance work and family, and women end up carrying nearly all of the caregivingresponsibilities.(Mary Brinton, the Reischauer Institute Professor of Sociology at Harvard University).Reading Question:1. Are you more in agreement with Sandberg or the above authors? That is, shouldwomen lean in or lean back? Support your opinion.Masturbation Among Young Women and Associations with Sexual Health:An Exploratory Study1. Summarize the findings of the study. How can these findings be applied to help girls feelmore comfortable with their own sexuality?Hooking Up1. Sociologist Kathleen Bogle argues that hooking up has become the normative path torelationships on campus.Theres something about the way people define college life as a time to party and a timeto kick back. Theyre postponing marriage, so they have time to play the field.(Jayson 2007).Do you agree or disagree with the above statement? Support your position.
