youth memories


Growing up my favorite cartoons was called Candy Candy, the story was about this girl named candy who was an orphan. Early in the story she gets adopted by a rich family that sends her to boarding school. Throughout the story line she goes through tragic a event that changes her life drastically.
I watch the cartoons a long time ago; yet I never realized that they showed forms of discrimination against women. For example the main character Candy she wanted to become a doctor after the love of her life disappears, however she was not allowed by the school instead they put her in the school of nursing which was appropriate for “young ladies” to study.  For many years nursing has been considered a women’s job such so that some man today say the expression “yes I’m a male nurse” with some embarrassment when asked what they do for a living.
