Gender Roles and Gender Consciousness in a Changing Society
Author: Catherine Farris
Category: Business & Economics
Taiwan's rapid socio-economic and political transformation has given rise to a gender-conscious middle class that is attempting to redefine the roles of women in society, to restructure relationship patterns, and to organize in groups outside the family unit. This book examines internal psychological processes and external societal processes as the feminist movement in Taiwan expands and new gender roles are explored. The contributors represent a cross section of different disciplines - history, anthropology, and sociology - and different generations of China/Taiwan scholars. They place the issues facing Taiwan's women's movement in social, political, and economic contexts. The book examines gender relations, the role of women in Chinese society, and issues related to women in China throughout history. Feminism and gender relations are also viewed from the context of film and literature. The authors look at the contemporary roles that women play in Taiwan's work force today, how the sexes perceive each other in the workplace, and more.
This volume explores issues and themes related to violence against women. The contributing authors approach the topic from a Pentecostal perspective both in the way they assess the pervasiveness and urgency of the problem and in the solutions they propose.
Christians are the products of yesterday, today, and forever. It means that we have the past, present, and future. Everybody has past records; if not well handled with faith, it can ruin your future completely. You need faith in Jesus Christ to remain successful in life. Look for faith and make it the foundational stone that will hold your past, present, and future without any unnecessary anxieties. Friends are important when they are contributing to your success, but when you are the only one carrying their burdens, you will soon be like them-poor. Faith will make you survive when you are left alone. God will never visit you for a special miracle until men will leave you alone in the midst of trouble. There are two people you must trust for your future: Jesus Christ and yourself. A meaningful and outstanding future is the result of faith commanded into critical situation when all hope is lost. Everyone that wants to have a glorious future must look for faith to embrace. You cannot divorce faith and marry future. You never know how important faith is until you know how painful it is to live life without faith. The Bible says, "The just shall live by faith" (Romans 1:17, NKJV). Brethren, it is only those that have faith who will drive into future with fearless minds.
