In order to do this, a mission statement, and plan of operation has to be completed. Management should begin fundraising projects. Letters should be mailed to request monetary donations, supplies, and volunteers for the business. Management should contact local churches, restaurants, stores and ask if they are interested in adopting this project. Another good thing for management to be would to contact women dominated business and local YWCA. These businesses are more likely to become main contributors.

...The business world today is competitive. It's full of fierce, educated, and motivated people. For some people it's tough to rise to the top and for some people it comes much easier. It's not always about hard work! One might ask for a map to the yellow brick road, but few people are ever provided with it. Most people are stuck in an ocean making calculated guesses as to how they can reach land. Which route is the best? How much school is enough? How many certificates of accreditation is enough? How much work experience is enough? All of us ask these questions attempting to navigate our ships in a competitive world were only a few individuals ever get to their targeted career position. How many of those in leadership positions are women? How many of them men? Generally the few who navigate their way to the top have learned to read their maps, but there is a surprising disparity as to who makes it and who doesn't. People in leadership positions face overwhelming challenges to get to their positions. Not surprisingly the ones who make it to the top are predominately men, yet it's even more of a challenge if you're a women.

...Women vs. Men in Business. Should They Have the Same Rights? Women’s movement for equality with men appeared in the end of the XVIII century. The main idea was that women were oppressed in patriarchal society, which was concentrated on men. Not until the end of the XIX - the beginning of the XX century did women begin to attain rights: suffrage, a right to study in a university, to own property etc. Nowadays in many spheres of life, particularly in family life, women are equal with men. However, business is not one of them. In business, men prevail. For example, according to an Associated Press analysis of Standard & Poor's 500 companies there are no women in a list of 10 highest-paid CEOs. Women CEOs are paid much lesser. This is not to say that women are not strong or intelligent enough, it has simply been like that since the beginning, when a man was at the wheel. Of course, there are outstanding examples of women, who have achieved everything they have by themselves, but these examples are sporadic. According to Forbes Woman, in some countries women don’t even have the right to inherit business, to get bank loans or the right to education. Nevertheless, the number of businesswomen grows every year. More that 50% of students in the world are women. Women play a more important role in the world's economy than before. There are countries, where the number of female entrepreneurs is bigger than the number of male entrepreneurs (e.g. Switzerland, Singapore,......

The Business of Women- a Book Review

...Literature pertaining to entrepreneurial women is very limited. There are numerous books that depict the lives of wage-earning women in Canada; however works on self-employed women are uncommon. The Business of Women- Marriage, Family, and Entrepreneurship in British Columbia, 1901-1951, was written by Melanie Buddle in 2010, under UBC Press. In The Business of Women, Buddle attempts to highlight the key features of entrepreneurial women in the 1900’s in Western Canada, exploring how and why women entered the business world. In this book, Buddle examines case studies and primary documents in order to expose the world of female entrepreneurs. Buddle focuses on issues of gender and class relations that influenced the ability of women to become self-employed. Although the information presented in this book represent the period of 1901 to 1951, I will attempt to draw connections, through the use of a summary and analysis, between the materials presented in this book to 21st century businesswomen. In the first part of The Business of Women, Buddle addresses reasons why women were more likely to be self-employed in British Columbia. Buddle highlights frontier characteristics that depict why a larger proportion of women in British Columbia were married and were self-employed. In British Columbia, women married in higher proportion, compared to the rest of Canada. Many males arrived in British Columbia in the 1850’s during the gold rush and many men settled in Western Canada in......

Women in Psychology Paper

...Over the years psychology has grown and become more prevalent in society as people are more inclined to know more about the mind, behaviors, and how it all relates to psychology itself. There have been some major influences on psychology and what it is today. At first thought, one would only be able to think of a man who may have contributed to psychology but in contrast, there are many women who have contributed to psychology and what it has become. Anna Freud is one profound woman that had a lot to contribute to the world of psychology. She was born in Vienna on December 3, 1895. She is the youngest daughter of Sigmund Freud’s six children, and she is the only one of the children that became a psychoanalyst. Freud was the founder of child psychoanalysis, and she added to the understanding of how the ego and consciousness functions in preventing painful thoughts, ideas, and urges (Anna Freud, 2013). Of all Sigmund Freud’s children, Anna was closest to him, and she related to him in ways that the other kids did not. Freud’s mother was closer to her other children while Anna identified with her father. Freud and her mother had a strained relationship. Added to their already strained relationship, Freud’s mother was a total skeptic when it came to psychoanalysis. Sigmund Freud noticed his daughter’s intelligence and how interested she was in psychoanalysis. However, he did not send her to the schools that would prepare her for university. Alternatively, she attended Cottage......

...Women in Psychology Paper PSY/310- History and Systems of Psychology September 16, 2012 Laura Rolen Like women, members of minority groups have been on the outside looking in for most of psychology’s history. Unlike the case for women, however, significant gains for blacks and most other minorities were not made in the years following World War II, and minorities continue to be underrepresented in psychology (Goodwin & Wiley & Sons inc., Chapter 15, 2008). In this paper I will be discussing Mary Whiton Calkins (1863-1930), Calkins was an American philosopher and she was the first of her generation of women to enter into psychology. Calkins was born on March 30, 1963 in Hartford, Connecticut she was the eldest of five children who were born to Charlotte Whiton Calkins (mother) and Wolcott Calkins (father). Calkins father was a Presbyterian minister her and her siblings lived and grew up in Buffalo New York, and at the age of 17-years-old her and her family moved to Newton, Massachusetts. Calkins started taking college classes at Smith College in 1882 where she was......

Battered Women

...There are many reasons why men abuse women. A one reason men abuse woman is because the men feel like they need to be in control all the time. Another reason is because they might have been surrounded by it as a child. Third reason is they have no respect for women. These men keep getting away with beating and harming these innocent women, and the women are not doing anything about it. “Statistics say, 71,000 episodes of domestic violence statewide in 1994, resulting in the deaths of 42 women (Battered Wives Remembered).” Men think that it is their job to be the boss in the relationship, and to take control. Men believe that they wear the “pants” in the relationship, and that they are a loud to make all the decisions, for both the women and themselves. There is a process to the men abusing these women. Stage one is Honeymoon. Honeymoon is where the men manipulate the women into thinking they are great, wonderful boyfriends, and that they are the one and only, and then they treat their partner like a princess. Once their women are all buttered up, they make promises to these women and then they slowly move into the second stage. Stage two is known as tension. Tension is the stage where the men fight, argue, push, shove, hit, kick, smack, punch, the women and break them down physically and emotionally. Once the tension builds up the couple goes into stage three. Stage three is called explosion. Explosion is when the men beat and abuse their women worse than in stage two.......

...successful for women-owned business throughout the years? When President John F. Kennedy signed Executive Order 10925 on March 6, 1961, which established Equal Employment Opportunity, it has opened doors for minorities. (OFCCP, 1961) The order informed contractors doing business with government take affirmative action to ensure that applicants are employed, and that employees are treated during employment without regard to their race, creed, color, or national origin. Four years later, President Lyndon B. Johnson issued Executive Order 11246, which prohibits employment discrimination based on race, color, religion, and national origin for those organization receiving federal contracts and subcontract. (OFCCP, 1961) In 1967 President Johnson amended the order to include sex. This order was designed to end discrimination by guaranteeing women-owned business was included in the pool to get a government contracts. The United States is the world’s largest purchaser of goods and services, with the average spending of $500 billion or more each year, of that $25 billion is directed to women-owned business and minority-owned firms. We have seen minority owned business on the rise in the past years.

Gender Women Studies Paper

...Hannah Pelfresne Christine Garlough GWS-102 Section 306 17 December 2014 Final Exam Women face problems while working in terms of harassment, hostile reputations, and unequal pay. According to lecture, harassment is defined as the verbal and physical misconduct because of race, gender, etc. to intimidate and create hostile environments. Harassment in white male dominated work occurs most often with women especially women of minority (Berdahl and Moore). This discourages women from feeling comfortable and taking initiative in the workforce out of fear. It can also have long-lasting emotional and physical effects on women. Also, women who hold high positions often face hostility from their counterparts. For example, if a man holds a high position at a company he is seen as a strong, commanding leader. Women are often seen as bossy or unapproachable. Although women make up 46.7% of the workforce, they still aren’t receiving equal pay compared to their male coworkers (Patten and Parker). According to lecture, the Gender Wage Gap reports women currently earning 78 cents to a man’s dollar. So one can infer that about half of the workforce is earning twenty-two cents less the other half just because of their biological makeup. This leads to thousands of dollars in lost wages, or lost income that would help drive the economy (Garlough). There are negative effects to women’s role in work because of how society is socially constructed. For example, being a......

Battered Womens Syndrome

...Capitalism and Patriarchy’s Effect on Battered Women’s Syndrome and Abuse Introduction Domestic violence has existed for centuries and is still prevalent in present day society (Flowers, 1996: 131). Domestic violence generally involves violence towards women and children (Sev’er, 2007: 235).This generally includes physical, sexual, verbal, and emotional violence directed towards a spouse, girlfriend, wife, or partner (DeKeseredy, 2005: 234). One of the debates surrounding domestic violence is the legitimacy of battered women’s syndrome. There are arguments over whether or not battered woman’s syndrome is a justifiable defence or just an excuse (Fumento, 1996: 158). The aim of this paper is to justify the legitimacy of Battered Women’s Syndrome, or BWS for short. I will look at the history of violence to better understand the credibility of BWS as well as why it is discredited. I will analyze how the patriarchal capitalist society we live in affects the views regarding BWS and abuse. The purpose of this section is to understand how the patriarchal capitalist society attempts to protect male status by discrediting the validity of spousal abuse and BWS. Definition and History Battered women’s syndrome results from a pattern of abuse from a partner (Barnett & LaViolette, 1996: 158). Spousal abuse has had a long history, and has grown since the middle ages (Flowers, 1996: 131). Social scientist Friedrich Engels noted that spousal abuse began “with the emergence of......

Response to Lived Realities and Formula Stories of "Battered Women”

...Lived Realities and Formula Stories of "Battered Women” This article talks about how there has been a formulaic story attributed to battered women’s testimonies. In the title of this piece battered women is written in parenthesis because the author, Loseke believes that women are being trapped into taking the role of the defenseless woman who was a victimized by male violence. Loseke studies the behaviors at 4 different battered women’s support shelter organizations and pays close attention to the verbiage used amongst the residence during group discussions. In these group discussions we see that the mediator will try to keep the women talking only about their physical abuse experienced. If the conversations begin to digress, the staff member will redirect the discussion to the more formulaic, socially accepted story line of the “battered women” and the “abusive man”. The formula story talked about in this article is one that points to the accepted concept of gender in society. The gender binary we have says that men hare stronger, faster, bigger, taller, and smarter. The gender binary also says that women are delicate, vulnerable, passive, and weak. Therefore these formula stories that are so popular, practically encouraged, highlight the perceived differences between the genders and dramatize the role of the defenseless woman and the powerful aggressive male. In “Vunerability and Dangerousness The Construction of Gender through Conversation about Violnce”......

Business Ethics- Women in Power

...Business Ethics Term Paper Women in Power Women are not making it to the top of any profession anywhere in the world. The percentage of women in corporate governance remains low in comparison to men. The evidence presents itself through numbers. There are 190 heads of state, only nine are women. The percentage of women who are at positions such as chief executive officers, senior executives, and board members is significantly low in large, publicly-held companies. Women are not only underrepresented in the United States but all around the globe. Multiple surveys were conducted by the Pew Research Center concluding the general finding that “according to the majority of Americans, women are every bit as capable of being good political leaders as men and the same can be said about their ability to dominate the corporate boardroom.” Yet, 43 percent of women are held to higher standards in regards to top executive business positions and 38% of women in regards to high political offices. What causes the absence of women leaders in corporate governance? Do the causes follow ethical guidelines? Looking at the Pew Research Center survey, a major reason that more women are not in top executive business positions is because they are healed to higher standards than men and many businesses are not ready to hire women for top executive positions. A minor reason is that family responsibilities get in the way of women committing time to run a major corporation, women......

Review of Article of Battered Women in Prison

...need for screening women within the prison system to see if they had been victims of domestic violence. The author Barbara L Zust, PhD, RN, associate professor of nursing, wanted the readers to understand how many women are incarcerated for illegal activity they were forced by their abuser to commit with the alternative of them being killed. She presented how the judicial system blamed them for not leaving and the criminal justice system has ultimately wrongfully punished them in many cases by not allowing them to even present evidence at the trial of abuse. She states how statistics are not collected on a consistent basis throughout prisons, but in 2005 a random survey was given by the Bureau of Justice finding that 50% of the women in prison had been raped or abused by their partner prior to being convicted. Anecdotal data provided by prison health care providers indicated an even higher percentage of 90-95% of women being victims of domestic violence. The author also informs the readers that the United States is the only country in the world that has male guards overseeing the women prisoners. The lack of recognition of the abuse of these women, results in lack of programs to help them. Many of the victims then begin experiencing severe PTSD due to pat downs, searches, and use of restraints by the male prison guards. The author in trying to become more aware of the needs of these women has conducted a telephone survey which is still underway to women prisons......

Women & Business

...In many cultures throughout the world women are patronized and viewed as the weaker sex. Women are commonly perceived as being unfit for any forms of higher education and because of societal pressure and expectations retreat to a life of raising children and cooking meals for their husbands. Our society’s stereotypical views about women’s suffrage, educational expectations and athletic abilities have all advanced over the years. In many aspects of our society, women are now expected to compete with their male counterparts. Currently, it is not uncommon to hear of a women CEO or Vice President in businesses or even a women politician. Women have now emerged from laundry rooms and kitchens across the country and changed the demographics of the American workforce. However women are yet to take the medical workplace by storm and redefine the preconceived notions society upholds about leaders in medical professions. Many women may be happy assisting a male doctor but the growing number of female doctors illustrates the point that women want the power and control that their male counterparts currently maintain. Western female thought through the centuries has identified the relationship between patriarchy and gender as crucial to the women’s subordinate position. For two hundred years, patriarchy precluded women from having a legal or political identity and the legislation and attitudes supporting this provided the model for slavery. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries...
