Today the forces of global engagement are helping some people identify themselves as global citizens, meaning that they have a sense of belonging to a world community. This growing global identity in large part is made possible by the forces of modern information, communication, and transportation technologies.

Housewives Institute was quickly eliminated in the 20s of the last century. Today, most women want to work. Firstly, there is no guarantee that the husband’s earnings will always be stable and that the marriage will not break up. Secondly, the social status of the housewife is very low.

    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.
