To be honest I didn’t have an idea of what Martha’s looks, physical status, and cognitive status would be like because in my personal life I have had relatives that were very independent and functional that lived into their nineties. On the other hand, I have known people that depended heavily on others by their sixties. You cannot stereotype people and you must see everyone for their individual traits rather than overgeneralize them. Martha is an independent, family-loving, religious woman that had grown up in hard times and lived a hard farmer’s life. You can see the spark of life in her eyes and hear the resilience in her voice even now. The areas of diversity between her and I are obviously age. Martha is also a female and a mother. Growing up the expectations of what her titles meant have changed. She did work outside the house once her children grew up. In today’s society children are growing up with both parents working or in households where the parents may not even be living…

    Society expects sexual empowerment to be an individual responsibility; therefore, sexual education in schools does not aim to empower students about sexuality but rather to educate them on the basics and expect them to learn other information on their own. The way in which sexual empowerment is portrayed today makes it appear “as an individualistic notion of self-improvement and personal responsibility” (Grose, Grabe, & Kohfeldt, 2014), making it about the individual rather than an institutional…
