Sample Text:
Sex work refers to prostitution, which is a sexual exchange for money or other valuables, the term ‘sex work’ is thus considered to convey the professionalism of the sex worker rather than her or his lack of worth as seen by much of the society. To argue whether sex work is a victimless crime, it is essential to establish whether there is actually a crime. By legal definition, crime is whatever the state identifies as a crime, that is, if it is written into the criminal law and is subject to state sanction in the form of a specific penalty then that activity is a crime.

This student studied:
University of Southern Queensland - INR1000 - International Relations in a Globalizing Era

The drug trade is having significant effects on rural Mexico society and government must take legitimate steps in order to end the war against drugs once and for all. This essay will argue that in order for the ‘Pact for Mexico’ to be successful this will solely depend on the actions of the new prime minister and political parties. The essay will begin by addressing the current governmental and policy issues that surround poverty, education and drug abuse.

It will then examine the inequality and segregation of women and children in rural society and how this negatively feeds the drug trade industry. This essay will then argue that if Pena Neito does not take action on his vows he will not succeed with the war against drugs and the outcome will be devastating.

The relationship between gender and the law

This student studied:
RMIT University - SOCU2095 - Sociology of Law

This essay will argue that the reality of the criminal justice system is not gender neutral (and is thereby gendered) by examining cases where women have been marginalised by legal institutions, with a direct focus on the outcomes for sex workers. Moreover, this analysis will show that the treatment of female sex workers by the patriarchal law enforcement and legal systems as well as the Australian government is sub standard when compared to the treatment of others. This will be done by examining the relationship between gender and the law through a feminist perspective by defining the concepts of law as they relate to gender and feminism, followed by an analysis of the interaction between gender inequalities faced by women in society.
