Gender Inequality: Is it just a mere slogan? -By Maitree Patel
Do you often wonder how smart you are? Possibly by calculating the average of your grades. But your grades don't define how intelligent you are, rather several individuals have multiple intelligence categories, which they can be dominant in. One common misconception about these is that, it represents the same concept as learning styles. Instead, the intelligence types represent different intellectual abilities.
In a futuristic universe, with illusions of a perfect society is portrayed in Marian Engel’s “Sophie 1990” which may be perceived as the opposite of a Utopian living condition. A short story developed from science fiction expresses an oppressive behaviour of individuals that can arise from inferences of living in the future. Living in a dystopian world, the protagonist Sophie conquers critical issues where resources are limited, showing sympathy for her beloved, dying child and questioning the government as to let the woman work. Firstly, Sophie encounters an issue of limited access to resources in her current living situation. For instance, the vegetable population was decreasing as “She (Sophie) could almost hear the parsley and onions growing (Engel, 269) along with wool being valuable as “all the sheep had died in the Freeze and the cattle. Now we (characters) dress in wood pulp” (Engel, 270). To analyze, Sophie responds with a laugh, while acknowledging the fact that she lives in a ‘funny’ world as well, with a decrease of resources to keep individuals alive, Sophie accepts the reality as her needs were being taken care of while grasping on to hope, meanwhile, living in a poor contemporary condition.
For instance, my top three most dominant intelligence's are verbal, visual and musical intelligence categories. In verbal intelligence, I am able to utilize language arts to express emotions or persuade others. With visual intelligence, I am able to perceive visual and spatial information and create effective mental pictures. Also, with music smart, I have the ability to recognize, create music using emotions from rhythms.
To begin with, I am most dominant with verbal/linguistic intelligence due to my comfort-ability and skills at explaining my emotions both in writing and verbally. For instance, I have showed multiple writing and verbal skills through my grade 9 English final assessment. I have done a presentation on gender inequality (a critical topic). In this presentation I have excelled in well researching from good sources, several details were provided for preventing the serious issue and I expressed enthusiasm for both genders. As well, I provided questions to the audience for thinking and reflection for themselves. Overall, in my presentation I also created a P.S.A which showed my analysis of the topic and several symbolism pieces associated with inequality.
Another example, which I have demonstrated my writing skills was for an English 10 written paragraph assignment. In this task we were assigned to demonstrate our writing skills using a proper paragraph structure. In this specific task I demonstrated my writing skills by using sophisticated vocabulary, detailed analysis and even integrating quotes which are more complex.
*Some Written Evidence on "Sophie 1990"
I expressed a song which shows a sudden change in a relationship from sadness to happiness. In the painting I have created I portrayed two sides which one showed an undeveloped relationship connected with nature being furious with rain and plants withering and dying as well my colour choice was dark colours to show the gloomy, and unhappy part of the song. On the other half of the painting, I expressed the feeling “euphoria” meaning an intense state of happiness. This side showed nature all grown up. having a visual and a healthy look which symbolized the individuals who grew mature, along with blooming flowers, a grown mountain and birds.
