  • Make Prostitution Legal - 1,238 words
    Make Prostitution Legal Prostitution Theory 101 by Yvonne Abraham with Sarah McNaught Few things have divided feminists as much as the sex industry. Theorists who agree on a vast swath of issues -- economic equality, affirmative action, even sexual liberation -- often find themselves bitterly opposed over pornography and prostitution. Most 19th-century feminists opposed prostitution and considered prostitutes to be victims of male exploitation. But just as the suffragette and temperance movements were bound together at the turn of the century, so too were feminist and contemporary moral objections to prostitution. Women, the argument went, were repositories of moral virtue, and prostitution ...

  • Shiloh - 563 words
    Shiloh The setting in the short story "Shiloh" by Bobbie Ann Mason works well to accentuate the theme of the story.

  • Shiloh And Log Cabin - 1,167 words
    Shiloh And Log Cabin Many assumptions can be made about what the log cabin symbolizes or what its significance is in the story. However, one correlation stands out stronger than any other in my mind. The log cabin is a symbol of the state of Leroys and Norma Jeans relationship.

If the word log cabin is replaced with either relationship or marriage the translation should not change any of the meaning in the story and in the majority of ...
