As you will recall, the concept of Ren, or humanness, is the most important principle in Confucian ethics. This is the idea of treating others with compassion. Ren frames all other virtues (both moral and non-moral). For this assignment, demonstrate your understanding of Ren and other key concepts of Confucian ethics by choosing one of the following options: Write a Poem Write lyrics and/or record a Song (may be an original tune or a parody) Write a script and/or record a TV or Radio Commercial Create a PowerPoint Presentation Create a Movie Poster Create a Travel Brochure While you may choose any of the above formats, you must cover some of the basics surrounding Ren. Include a definition of it, examples of Ren in everyday life, why Ren is an important tenet in Confucian ethics, and how does one show Ren towards others? What you submit to the drop box below will vary depending on which form of expression you choose above. However, it is your responsibility to ensure that what you submit can be easily viewed by an average person using a computer equipped with Internet access and Microsoft Office. Some examples might include: Poem: would likely take the form of a Microsoft Word document. Song: lyrics would likely be done in a Word document. Song: audio recording would ideally be in an NIP3 format (to ensure that the file is small enough to submit).
Myers & Crowther, 2007 analyzed how feminist identity could be a moderating factor sociocultural pressures, thin-ideal internalization, self-objectification and body dissatisfaction. Similar to our study feminist beliefs were used as the moderator but it this study feminist beliefs were used to moderate the relationship between sociocultural pressures on thin-ideal and body dissatisfaction. 195 female undergraduates completed self-report measures assessing socio cultural influences, feminist beliefs, thin-ideal internalization, self-objectification and body dissatisfaction (Myers & Crowther, 2007). The findings of this study are relevant because feminist beliefs did have a moderating effect on the relationship between media awareness and thin-ideal internalization. It was hypothesized that feminist identity can impact the way women view advertisements causing them to be less likely to self-objectify which is supported by the findings in the study completed by Myers & Crowther, 2007). Feminist identity can be looked at as a powerful resource contrasting the negative stereotypes and stigmas surrounding women. Sabik & Tylka, 2006, specifically looked into feminist identify and its effect against sexist events toward distorted eating. Using hierarchical moderated regression, the study found two types of feminist identity; synthesis and active commitment (Sabik & Tylka, 2006). These two out of the five feminist identity styles they evaluated were the only ones that affected the relationship between disordered eating and assumed sexist events. The results found that non-feminist women were impacted greater by sexist events than feminist women, meaning non-feminist women receied more psychological distress when faced with sexist events. This is helpful because feminist consciousness were proven to be a unique factor that could weaken the relationship between sexist events and psychological distress. In order to clarify and advance the findings of previous studies, we will measure Feminist Identity using the Feminist Beliefs and Behavior scale (Zucker, 2004). The scale contains three items about the cardinal beliefs of feminists answered in a yes/no format followed by one dichotomous question to access the participants’ willingness to identify as a feminist. Examples of items include, “Girls and women have not been treated as well as boys and men in our society” and “Women and men should be paid equally for the same work”. Participants will answer to each item in a dichotomous, yes/no format. Based on previous research, we expect out hypothesis, “Women who identify themselves as feminists or have core beliefs of feminists will be less likely to self-objectify due to menstrual taboo” to be true. Every movement made by feminist is to express their confidence and acceptance of oneself. In doing so the disdain and taboos of menstruation will shift, creating confidence in all woman to be>GET ANSWER
