Gender Jobs In Period Of Immigration To The North Essay

Male or female Roles In Season Of Migration To The North

Gender Roles in ​

SeasonВ ofВ MigrationВ toВ theВ NorthВ

SociallyВ constructedВ genderВ rolesВ haveВ beenВ enforcedВ throughoutВ many В societiesВ. В TheВ differentВ

rules В ofВ behaviorsВ andВ traitsВ aВ maleВ andВ femaleВ happen to be В expectedВ to В fulfillВ constrictВ theВ evolvementВ ofВ anВ individualВ andВ restrainВ themВ fromВ reachingВ theirВ desiredВ potential. В AlthoughВ differentВ societiesВ createВ differentВ standardsВ ofВ genderВ roles, В theВ endВ resultВ isВ stratificationВ betweenВ theВ twoВ sexes. В WeВ canВ seeВ justВ how В genderВ rolesВ affectВ individualsВ andВ theirВ societyВ throughВ theВ novel ​ SeasonВ ofВ MigrationВ toВ theВ

NorthВ byВ authorВ TayebВ Salih. В InВ thisВ storyВ SalihВ displaysВ theВ useВ ofВ genderВ rolesВ andВ theirВ negativeВ andВ inhibitingВ effectВ onВ anВ individual. В TheseВ preВ­determinedВ rolesВ thatВ areВ linkedВ toВ anВ individualВ basedВ onВ theirВ sexВ andВ genderВ hasВ shownВ toВ promoteВ stereotypesВ asВ wellВ asВ inequalities, В whichВ hinderВ theВ progressionВ ofВ theВ societyВ asВ aВ whole. В

DependingВ onВ whichВ societyВ isВ beingВ examined, В genderВ rolesВ areВ culturallyВ createdВ andВ learned. В

AsВ mentionedВ inВ theВ thesisВ byВ CameronВ PruvisВ and ​ CarillonВ RuthНѕВ genderВ andВ genderВ rolesВ areВ definedВ asВ " beingВ culturallyВ assignedВ toВ anВ individualВ onВ aВ basisВ ofВ sex” andВ thatВ genderВ isВ theВ " resultВ ofВ learningВ inВ accordanceВ withВ particularВ prescriptionsВ ofВ culture”(13). В In ​ SeasonВ ofВ MigrationВ toВ theВ

North ​

theВ menВ andВ womenВ exhibitВ genderВ rolesВ thatВ areВ establishedВ andВ enforcedВ byВ the В cultureВ ofВ theВ countryВ theyВ liveВ inНѕВ Sudan, В inВ particularВ theВ villageВ ofВ WedВ HamidВ whereВ mostВ ofВ theВ storyВ takesВ place. В В

TheВ cultureВ ofВ theВ villageВ ofВ WedВ HamidВ valuesВ traditionalВ implicationsВ ofВ genderВ roles. В TheВ

womanВ mustВ upholdВ herВ roleВ asВ aВ passive, В delicate, В docile, В motherlyВ specific. В OnВ theВ other В handВ theВ manВ isВ taking over, В well known, В well-informed, В strong, В andВ hard В working. В ThereВ isВ clearВ differenceВ inВ genderВ rolesВ inВ thisВ society, В whichВ the В charactersВ inВ thisВ storyВ adhereВ to. В HoweverВ thereВ isВ anВ exceptionВ

ofВ aВ fewВ charactersВ thatВ goВ againstВ theirВ socially В constructedВ genderВ rolesВ onlyВ toВ beВ facedВ withВ consequencesВ forВ strayingВ offВ theirВ genderВ paths. В

OneВ ofВ theВ mainВ charactersВ MustaphaВ Sa'eedВ createsВ aВ distinctionВ betweenВ theВ femaleВ andВ maleВ

genderВ derivedВ fromВ theВ storiesВ heВ recitesВ toВ theВ narrator. В ThroughВ Mustapha'sВ liaisonsВ withВ EuropeanВ girls, В heВ hasВ exhibitedВ commonВ men В characteristicsВ thatВ areВ promotedВ throughВ theВ SudaneseВ cultureВ suchВ asВ beingВ aggressive, В dominant, В intelligent, В andВ sexuallyВ prominent. В ThroughВ hisВ dialogueВ weВ getВ aВ senseВ ofВ dominanceВ andВ degradationВ ofВ theВ womenВ heВ definesВ asВ hisВ " prey”(26). В HisВ manipulationВ ofВ his В relationsВ withВ womenВ isВ alsoВ anВ exampleВ ofВ hisВ genderВ roleВ ofВ dominance В andВ sexual В power. В MustaphaВ statesВ " ThereВ isВ aВ poolВ inВ theВ depthsВ ofВ everyВ womanВ thatВ IВ knew В howВ toВ stir” which В is В anВ indicationВ ofВ howВ heВ usesВ hisВ powerВ ofВ dominanceВ toВ manipulateВ womenВ intoВ fulfillingВ hisВ desiresВ (27). В ManyВ ofВ hisВ relationsВ depictВ theВ inferiorityВ ofВ womanВ toВ MustaphaВ suchВ asВ hisВ relationshipsВ withВ SheilaВ Greenwood, В IsabellaВ Seymour В andВ AnnВ HammondВ whereВ heВ domineeredВ theirВ emotionsВ untilВ theyВ committedВ suicide. В

TheВ womenВ inВ thisВ novelВ areВ constantlyВ beingВ objectifiedВ andВ treatedВ as В subordinatesВ toВ their В

male counterparts.  There are many inequalities between the female and males  because of  their roles.  As cited in sociologists Barbara Reisman's ​

" Gender as a Structure”; ​

" В theВ continuingВ purposeВ ofВ genderВ

asВ aВ modernВ socialВ institutionВ isВ toВ constructВ womenВ asВ aВ groupВ toВ beВ subordinateВ toВ menВ asВ aВ group”(296). В InВ theВ village В ofВ WedВ Hamid, В menВ wereВ theВ onlyВ onesВ whomВ wereВ educatedВ andВ couldВ goВ overseasВ toВ...
