Jonathan Maweu Gender Roles Mar/27/19 Society will often find a way to act unfairly to a specific group of people because of their ethnicity, nationality, or gender. 1 Throughout ancient and modern times, women have been specifically targeted to be pushed back by men simply because they have physical and emotional differences. 2 Because of this illogical thinking, sexism slowly seeped into the church, and for hundreds of years during the Middle Ages, false doctrines and beliefs were spewed from the pulpit. Many verses in the Bible were often taken out of context and women were being arrested for naïve church laws. No woman could speak out against the discrimination. The British Library states, Yet however powerful some women were in the Middle Ages; it is important to remember that the overwhelming majority were not. Most women, even those in privileged circumstances, had little control over the direction their lives took.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
