Cauldwell wrote extensively on sexual behavior, especially "deviant" sexual behavior, and specialized in writing about transvestism, transsexuality, and hermaphroditism. 1 ° Cauldwell's first Haldeman-Julius booklet was written in 1947 on transvestism. It was entitled Strange Stories, Weird Confessions, Historical Data and
Scientific Explanations of Transvestism and this title precisely summarizes its contents.
He repeated this formula in his later booklets, which consisted mainly of letters sent to him by his Sexology readers, historical examples interspersed with descriptions of the medical and scientific knowledge of the period, and his own advice and comments. 11
This formula is very much in evidence in Cauldwell's Effects of Castration on Men and
Women. Cauldwell rarely referred to specific medical or scientific writers in his publications, although he was very well read on sexological literature.
Cauldwell stated that he wrote to fight ignorance and intolerance and his approach was mainly tolerant. He was sympathetic towards the homosexual nurses he worked with after his graduation and he stated that his attitude toward homosexuals

Men and Women

...which, in my opinion, are the most basic ones. Genders represent the differences and also similarities between female and male, or women and men. In general, men undertake different responsibilities, tasks and women too. From history to modern time, the border –differences- between women and men hasn’t changed exactly yet. However, many people pretend not to see the similarities between men and women. In my opinion, it may be claimed that there are some differences and similarities between men and women in terms of responsibilities and tasks. First of all, we can say that there are some resemblance between men and women in terms of their responsibilities. According to many ancient and modern philosophers, people born in equal conditions. Their appereances may exactly be different, but they have same intelligence, opinions such as beliving God, living in a good way, helping each other, etc. However, their social environment changes from people to other people. Then the differences begin since people continue their own individual way, and the basic reason of these differences is being a man or woman. In addition, many married couples share their duties in their homes equally and similarly. For example, in many countries, men and women prepare meals with helping each other. Especially, in developed country, they help each other since both women and men work in their job. Moreover, married couples are more sensitive at loking after their children than their previous......

The History of Women

...The History of Women HIS 204 American History Since 1865 The History of Women What would the world be if not for the powerful women who have helped to guide the path of women’s rights in the nation? Would women enjoy the same freedoms or would women still be prisoners to the home? Thankfully women don’t need to spend much time contemplating this as we did have strong, powerful women that fought for women’s rights for centuries. Women encouraged other women to fight for equality, fight for freedom, fight for the opportunity to be a strong independent woman in a nation of strong independent men. This paper will discuss several significant events that shaped the future for women in America. Events driven by women that wanted their voices to be heard through a sea of men, women that wanted men to realize that women had a lot to offer this world we live in. The first event this paper will discuss is the American Equal Rights Association started in 1866 by Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. This association would shine a light on women’s suffrage in the nation and later inspire a more radical group called The National Woman Suffrage Association. World War I was another event that that the shaped the future for women in America and around the world. Women left their homes to become nurses that would care for wounded soldiers around the world. Another event is the passage of the 19th amendment in 1920. The 19th amendment gave women a voice in elections......

The History of Women

...HISTORY SUMMARY 1865-19901865-1900In the years following the Civil War the United States was transformed by the enormous growth of industry. Once, the United States was mainly a nation of small farms. By 1900, it was a nation of growing cities, of coal, steel, and of engines and fast communications. Though living standards generally rose, millions of industrial workers lived in crowded, unsanitary slums.In the north, industrial violence was common and occurred on numerous occasions. The most violent confrontation between labor and employers was probably the Great Railway Strike of 1877. The nation had been in the grip of a severe depression for four years. During that time, the railroads had decreased the wages of railway workers by 20 percent. Many trainmen complained that they could not support their families adequately, and there was little that the trainmen could do about the wage decreases. At that time, unions were weak and workers feared going on strike; there were too many unemployed men who might take their jobs. Some workers secretly formed a Trainmen's Union to oppose the railroads. In the last quarter of the century, the textile, metal, and machinery industries equaled the railroads in size. In 1870, the typical iron and steel firm employed fewer than 100 workers. Thirty years later, the force was four times as large. By 1900, more than 1,000 factories had work forces ranging from 500 to 1,000 workers. From 1860 to 1900 some 15 million immigrants from southern and...

Are Women Equal to Men

...the same respect and without discrimination. Throughout history, the gender role of women has been questioned and scrutinized in comparison to the gender role of men. Thus the notion of sexual equality plays an important role in determining the treatment of women. The central claim of this paper is that women should be treated equal to men. According to the human rights act 1998, every human has the right to equality therefore there is no reason for women to not be treated unequally (Human rights act, n.d.). I will also argue that women are not naturally inferior to men as this is a social stigma believed (Chambers, 2006). Singer (1975) defined a human person as individuals who are able to create moral reasoning. Hence there are human rights to identify what is moral. Women have these same rights regardless of their gender as they too are considered as moral human beings (Whipps, 2011). There is a right to equality established in the human rights act 1998 thus the unequal treatment of women is deemed immoral. However Sharp (2012) puts forward a view that women do not have the intellectual capacities to make moral decisions. It is believed that there is a psychological difference between the sexes and that women have a more hyperactive imagination than men (Conley, 2009). Therefore preventing them to implement moral reason. Since Singer (1975) definition of a human involves the ability to make moral decisions, women would not be considered as humans due to their......

Women in History

...Women Studies 101 11 February 2014 Woman that are put into history have done wonderful things in the world. One woman that should be written into history is Oprah Winfrey; she is the first African American to be a billionaire. She is really committed to help others and people look up to her. It does not matter who you are, where you came from. The ability to successes begins with you. Although Oprah Winfrey is famous for her work in media, she deserves to be written into history because of her work in making a difference in the world as well. As a result, history will be enriched in all the things she can do to change others lives. Oprah Winfrey lived with her grandmother in Mississippi. She comes from a poor family and even though she went through stuff she had her grandmothers and church support. At age 13 she moved to Milwaukee to live with her mother. That was when trouble came into her life. While she was living with her mother she faced sexual abuse and molestation; by her male relatives and her uncle. Sapiro says, "About 80 percent of women and 64 percent of men defined" a relative having sexual intercourse with a teenager under the age of 18" as rape"(Sapiro 402). Just to think that any teenage under the age of 18 can be raped by a relative is hard to imagine. Children that get raped at such a young do not always make a life out of themselves. They keep it all in and that damages them. Oprah never told anyone she kept it a secret and it all turned into anger...

Men and Women

...Amanda Popular Culture Pop. Culture Essay #1 Addressing the Issue: Men’s Men and Women’s Women The vast majority of people, with the exception of transvestites and other people with physical deformities, can be put into one of two categories; man or woman. Generally, the views and expectations one has for their own gender and the views and expectations one has for the opposite gender can be described as gendered stereotypes. Although stereotypes are not always close to the truth, in some cases they can hold some weight to an argument when they present the generalized representation of a certain group or groups. In this essay I will show how gendered stereotypes are used by advertising companies to appeal to each gender. Here in the U.S., you need not go far to bear witness the very apparent signs of genderfication and gendered stereotypes, tools used by advertisers that play important roles in our consumer-styled society. One only needs to go as far as their living room couch and turn on the television to be bombarded with shows and advertisements containing gendered images of the expectations our society has for its men and women by men and women. Author Steve Craig puts these gendered ideals into four distinct categories; Men’s men, Men’s women, Women’s men, and Women’s women (Craig). For this essay I will analyze four video advertisements, and, using Craig’s criteria, I will try to see under which of his categories each advertisement would fall and why.......

Men and Women Are Insolvent

...Men and Women are Insolvent By understanding unconditional love, it would make one to realize the true meaning of love. Two people who are madly in love may become enemies over night because they are different creatures. Men and women believe that they have and show immense affection to the person who they care for. Men of misconception are women only need their attention and nurturing. However, men do not realize women’s desires which are important in order for women to interact with men. Women just want to have random conversations and an attentive listener. Also, they possess different thoughts, behaviors and feelings these little gaps in personal view results in men and women to dissociate from each other. They both demand their opposite sexes to change without willing to change him or her. The egoistic behavior cause disappoint and less affection between the two sexes. Men’s instinct forces men to seek reality than fantasy. They seek capability, efficiency and achievement to gain satisfaction and identify their own self-inversion. Men obsess over cars, computers, high-technology and new machines which help them to achieve success. Men are more realistic than women and consider what is more useful for them. To save time, men eat out to avoid all the chores that come from cooking. But women’s reason to eat out is for relationship and conversation. Men desire to show their ability and lead other peers because men desire respect. Women value friendship, conversation and......

...What Is The Difference Between Men And Women Shavers Related Articles * » Women's Bathing Suits * » Trendy Hairstyles For Women * » Types Of Women’s Shoes * » Tattoo Ideas For Women * » Spring Fashions For Women Just like men’s shaving needs and women’s shaving needs are different, so are their products. Shaving products have been designed differently for both men and women with different features that cater to their various requirements. Razors for women are designed to take care of their delicate skin around the shin bone of the leg, plus the area around the knee and the calf. While men’s razors are designed simply to get their hair from the beard removed. Men’s shavers enable them to easily shave under and around the nose and lip without worrying about cuts or nicks. Likewise, women’s shavers help them get rid of the tiny hair after waxing that grows pretty fast. Read through the following lines to find out the difference between men and women shavers.   Women Vs Men Razors * Men’s razors are typically masculine and straightforward. Women’s shaving products, on the other hand, are of a softer shade and offer a larger and more comfortable handle. * Men’s shavers have a straight handle. Conversely, women’s shavers have a longer handle for a longer reach or a paddle-shaped handle to allow for a lengthwise grip. You can also find specialized handle designs for shaving areas, such as the underarms or the bikini line. * Although......

Leadership Styles of Men and Women

...Leadership Styles of Men and Women Executive Summary A research study on the main characteristics that lay the foundation for leadership styles of men and women is carried out in this paper. The key focus emphasized in this paper is on recognizing and studying the differences between the 2 sexes with respect to leadership attributes. Factors that lead to this distinction are highlighted, along with the traditional reasons that lead to these differences. A historical insight into the various trends that dominated different societies is given, in a view to engage the reader and lead him/her to understand how the gender roles evolved as the societies evolved. Many challenges that women encountered in the past are described that further aid in this understanding. The outcomes of this comparative study are then observed. These outcomes include gender-stereotypic expectations by the leaders, mental health of the individuals, efficiency at the job role, industrial pressure and gender discrimination. Generic leadership traits for men and women are observed and described, which tie to the gender-stereotypes. These observations distinguish the women to possess an interpersonal-oriented leadership style, as opposed to men, who possess task-oriented style of leadership. Different leadership studies are implemented to understand the impact of these styles. The impact varies for organizational studies, laboratory experiments and assessment studies. Other traits like how the leadership......

Better Managers: Men or Women

...WOMEN ARE BETTER MANAGERS THAN MEN – AGREE OR DISAGREE? To determine if women are better managers than men, we will have to look at what qualities define a ‘good manager.’ While examining the qualities that make a good manager, we will have to be mindful that these qualities are ultimately decided by the perception of beholder. During this examination we will also have to look at gender and its impact relative to the qualities of a good manager, if any. Gender may or may not have an impact, but even then, one would have to decide how important each quality is in the scope of determining what makes a good manager as a first step. Each quality would then have to be weighed in relation to a male or female and what that means, if anything, to come to a conclusion on whether I would agree or disagree with the statement, “Women are better managers than men.” I believe that the first and most important quality of a good manager is the relationship that he or she builds and maintains with their staff. If a manager has a good relationship with their staff, then they will always have a solid foundation to build off of when performing job responsibilities such as pushing staff for optimal performance, delivering constructive criticism, motivating and invigorating staff, maintaining ethical and moral practices within the organization, developing staff skill set and providing career guidance, among others benefits. When led by an effective manager, all of these things combined......

Men and Women

...Is there any Possibility that Men and Women can be Friends? Firstly, I would like to say that everyone knows that relationships between men and women are often complicated. A man and a woman meet, fall in love, go out for some time and then break up. It happens. A woman can meet a lot of guys and never meet someone, who is really special. One man can be a friend to another man and the same with women, but as for the friendship between men and women? It is the question to be answered. Being children, boys and girls can be friends, they go, for example, to the same kindergarten, share toys, play the same games. Growing, they visit school, speak on different topics, they have different interests from that, that were in childhood, but all the same, they communicate with each other and share joy and miseries. When they are teenagers already they can be attracted to each other and then it is more than a friendship, it is an attraction. They begin looking at one another from the other side and even in some years these relationships can become stronger and grow into love. That's the way it is. Secondly, there is the other side of the coin. You can fall in love with your friend, then you fall apart and there is nothing left, only hate towards each other. But in my opinion, there can be friendship between men and women. You can have a person, who is close to you, who helps you when you have problems, who is supportive and never turns back from you. A friend is one who believes in......
