黒人、汚いやつ、悪そうなやつ、電車を待っている
電車来てうつ準備するが誰もおりてこない。と思ったらハーモニカの音。「フランクは?」「雇い主だ」
ハーモニカ、3人を射殺。ハーモニカも左肩うたれる。

ジル急いでるのに止まってお店入る。「ニューオーリンズからきた」
シャイアン登場。手錠してる。
ハーモニカの音がきこえてくる。ハーモニカの左肩の傷みてニヤ。銃を手に取りハーモニカにパス「銃をとれ」横の男が銃に手をやるのをとめるシャイアン
その男に手錠をはずさせる。シャイアンの仲間到着。
ハーモニカ、俺の銃「このダスターみた」シャイアン「それは妙な話だ①俺の身内出なきゃ着る度胸はない②身内は殺されん」
「ハーモニカ吹いてろ。変な音吹くなよ」変な音吹く

「町に帰りましょう」「いいえ、あなた帰って」「まさか1人でここに」「Why not? This is my home.」

慌ててなにかを探してる。ない。悲しみにふける。ベッドに腰掛け、横になり、部屋を見渡す。

雨の中でぶはいってくる。でぶ外に。ハーモニカが部屋のあかりつける。ドアを明けてデブに殴りかかる。投げつける。「ウォルブス、フランクじゃなく三人の子分が来た」「話を通しただけだ。行かなかったのは何故か知らない」「マクベインの農場にいたからだ」「それはシャイアンの仕業だ」「フランクのトリックだ、証拠のねつ造」

ジル、家の模型、STATION、大事そうに見る。写真見てるとハーモニカの音。銃の準備「だれ?」銃打ってもハーモニカの音する。朝になる、鏡見てぼーっとする。どこみてるのかわからない。なめて顔に塗る。
鞄もって出て行こうとすると、シャイアン一味がいる。シャイアンだけ中に。「コーヒ入れろ。寝てない。黒服の一団が追ってきやがった。砂漠でまいてやった」
ジル、火つけられない。シャイアン「あいつら俺を吊るしたがってる(hang me)俺は何でも殺すが子供だけは殺さない。神父を殺すようなもんだ。」ジル、包丁準備。「噂ほどひどいやつじゃない。誰かが殺そうとすればかっとなる。そんな男はレディーに見られたくない」ジル、しまう。「怒らせないことだ」
「そんな値打ちか。同じ服をきたやつが罪をきせた。ただ理由がわからない」「わたしも」「理由を探したね」「殺しの動機は丸くて黄色いものかもれないな=金」「でもなかった」

モーガンは結核、その前に太平洋が見たいフランク「短期になったけど他はかわらない」「君は変わったよ自分で処理したのにいまはbackground、命令するだけ」「あなたにはパートナーが必要だね」モーガンの椅子に座った気分は銃をかまえたときよりもpowerful フランク「マクベインの件、腹案がある」モ「頑張ってるようだが私のようにはなれん、理解できないことが多いからだ」フランク警戒して銃構える。「武器に勝るのは金だ」
電車とまる。(カウボーイ達見てる)「私の武器は単純だが問題解決には役立つ。マクベイン夫人の解決にも」

ジル「世間を知り尽くしてなにも驚かない私にふと知り合った善人が澄んだ目で結婚を申し込む、ねがってもない金持ちだという。ニューオリンズがなによ。田舎も良い。子どもが何人いてもいい、家の面倒見る気になった。神様もお忙しいでしょうがマクベインの魂を救いたまえ」「彼は金を隠している」「探すが良いわMrs. Macbain goes back to civilization 夫はいなくても未来がある」
シャイアン「幸せになれるyou deserve better」「そう言った人は墓のしたよ」

シャイアンが窓の外から手下打つ。何人か打つ。残りはモーガンだけ。ハーモニカ、シャイアンにひもはずしてもらう。「このぶた線路をたどればいつでも探せる、今殺さなくてもいい」「もういっこの豚追おう」

工事。Stationとかくのよ。
模型探してたら、フランク「これか?」モーガン「女まで殺す必要ない、土地はお金で買えば良い」「怖いくせにでかい口たたいて」「君と張り合う暇ない」「立てもしないくせに。汽車にとじこめとけ。」

郵便局や給水塔、これはなんだ?「駅だ、マクベインの町だ、偉大な計画だ、アイルランド人らしい。荒れ地だがかえはここと決めつましく暮らしてきた。鉄道がくるのをまって。蒸気機関車に水がいるが水場はここだけだ。彼は自分の駅をもちたかった。権利もある。でも鉄道が通るときに駅できてないと件売りを失う」「工事はそこまできてる。鉄道中心の町か、金になるぞ」「それはmillionだよ」「駅を作るんだ!彼女が戻ったら見せてやる」

フランク脱がせる。「亭主を殺した男でも抱かれたいか、このあばずれ、生きるためなら何でもか」「そうよ」「ニューオリンズでは高級娼家が君がいなくてないてる。マクベインは知ってただろうな、知ってて結婚したのか。結婚しよう。でも亭主失格だ、もっと簡単ではやい手を考えよう」

...Higher History - Attitudes to Women Essay Model Answer "Changing attitudes in Britain Society towards women was the major reason why some women received the vote in 1918". How accurate is this view? During the 1900s, many women were beginning to stand up for themselves and no longer wanted to be inferior to men. Prior to 1918, women were disrespected and under - valued in society. There was a change in attitudes towards women as the image of the "New Women" began to arise. They were becoming involved in various different jobs, having the ability to be better educated and get involved in politics. However, this view that the "New Women" was the only factor that contributed to women getting the vote is untrue. Women began their own campaigns in order to get the vote. This included the Suffragists and the Suffragettes as both organisations were tired of being ignored and seen as "undeserving"of the vote. Furthermore, another addition to the factors is the "Reward Theory". Women during World War 1 became greatly involved in helping Britain in the war (e.g taking up jobs which were dangerous and only men would have normally done them). Therefore, the views upon women had changed and had a great impact on the reason women got the vote, but this is not the only factor that aided their achievement. Due to the break-down of the "separate spheres" during the 1900s, women were able to become more ambitious and better themselves. Before hand, women were not allowed to earn their own...

...The reality is that women do face discrimination in the IT field. Llewellyn and Usselman (as cited in Cohoon and Aspray, 2006) found that female college graduates in the US were considerably more likely to report having been discriminated against in their jobs. They most commonly reported the following barriers and challenges at their jobs: “promotions, family responsibilities, politics, discrimination, upper management’s problematic attitudes, and problems with respect”. Other challenges reported were departmental barriers, age, limited access to decision makers, and “men taking control”. Interestingly, they also found that organizations with fewer women seemed to be paid and promoted on par with men, while organizations that employed proportionately more female IT professionals tended to earn less, had less experience, and be slightly less well educated. I think that these findings represent a challenge to me as a female going into this profession in the future. The best way to handle these challenges is to gain as much knowledge and experience I can, build my skills and network with potential employers. This way I will be able to better demonstrate my technical skills and capabilities in the workplace. After conducting this research about the work of a business systems analyst, I find that I am more motivated to pursue this career. I have a better understanding of what skills and experience I require in order to go into this field. There will be potential challenges for......

...When women say they want real men, they’re talking about a guy who is both “Bad” and “sweet.” An abundance of women tend to label the men they prefer as “bad boys” when in all actuality they are referring to someone who is sexy, bold, and ambitious. As in sexy I mean someone who is not afraid to express their attraction for another person. Sexiness can be shown in many ways such as through flirtatious stares, gestures, or conversations. Of course not every man is sexy, but may hold another prominent characteristic trait every women desire, which is “sweetness.” Women sometimes overestimate their true predilection, and they believe what they really want is a sweet and caring man. In reality they really want someone who is willing to listen to them, embrace them, and care for them - a gentleman, someone who is polite (respectful, well educated, and friendly). Now, we all certainly know that women are always searching for the “perfect guy.” Any women, who searches for a “bad boy” and receives anything physical, other than affection, misunderstood their true desire of a bad guy. And any women who accept a “sweet” man who doesn’t embrace everything they have to offer then they are definitely misled. Men, if you read this please take this into consideration and try to find it in you to be the best at being both sexy and polite {of course at the appropriate time (place never really matters ;)} I bet your woman would be so satisfied that the love you crave and desire would be 2......

...Women’s roles are constantly changing. In early America, society believed that women were wives to their husbands and mothers to their children. They were there to serve the men in their lives. Young girls were required to obey the commands of their fathers, and women were to fulfill the wishes of their husbands. The men believed that this was their right. They believed that women’s job was to bolster the men’s self-esteem and to ensure that men were forever kings of their own domains. However, this belief changed drastically in the mid-nineteenth century, and by early twentieth century, women began to make statements of their own. They wanted women’s rights in marriage, voting and employment. Women became outspoken people with their own views and wishes. This change was neither simple nor easy. It took time for women’s power to emerge. Many women were successful in establishing their own identities. Freeman portrays both single and married women as strong willed characters. The women “actively determine and maintain places of their own choosing and enclosing [enclose] themselves in situations and choices that reflect personalities and purpose conducive to the affirmation” (Daniel 2). They act only to maintain their true selves. These women do not care what society will think of them or how men will react. They strongly believe that what they are doing will better themselves as people and as women. “A New England Nun” is an accurate portrayal of a self-sufficient woman......

...advanced. She discovers a state ruled by women, where men are timid and passive, and trained to cook and clean. In other words, Ladyland is an imaginary country where women are dominant over men, and women hold supreme power. Additionally, Ladyland turns out to be futuristic ideal world where women are beyond the segregated Purdah, and men live in isolation and secluded in quarters called mardana (Hossain 1905; 8-9). Ladyland is ruled politically and socially by women and they take place in a public sphere whereas men are confined to private and hidden world. Men are not taken into much consideration in Ladyland. By creating a fantasy world in which women play a dominant role, “Sultana’s Dream” compels us to perceive women’s potential to innovate, to create our own world and to exercise power in men’s world in which women are not demoralized. The proverb “Men and women are two wheels of the same chariot, without one the other cannot exist” or “Men and women are two sides of the same coin” tend to equalize men and women in every aspects of life. However, both the proverbs turn out to be fictional. Here, in world of discrimination, no women get equal priorities and opportunities that men take advantage off. The fact is that the world is conquered by men only from generations, where as women suffer from sub ordination and oppression. The practice of Purdah is tied with family status and honor that reflects respect in the community. Women are allowed with limited freedom where......

...Media representation of women Media have been reflectors of dominant values and work as an active agency aiming at reinforcing and strengthening dominant value structure. There is no doubt that mass media like TV, film, radio newspapers and magazines mould opinion, thinking, attitudes and behaviour. TV and films are more powerful as their reach and impact is greater than that of other media. All of these media have greater reach among men than women, but what catches the attention of the feminists and other concerned people is the unrealistic, negative portrayal of women in these media. Mass media do give coverage to women and their issues but damage done by media to women is more than the help offered to them. The role of media in the development of women and enhancement of their status in the society is very depressing. All mass media are being blamed for this. Mass media have been powerful agents of social influence but they have not been effective in portraying women in meaningful, respectable and positive manner. In 1978, a major UNESCO study on the portrayal and participation of women in the media found that the portrayal of women in the mass media globally was consistently poor. The study also confirmed that there was severe under-representation of women in the upper cadres of all media organizations, and that the average media woman earns less than her male counter-parts. Studies carried out in South Asia in 1986 confirm that women are portrayed either as docile...

...What Was Cannot Always Be For decades women have fought for their rights for equality in a manly dominated world. Their right to have their voices heard rather than be shunned away into a hidden corner, their right to vote, and their right to be able to work in the professional fields as men do. They have struggled for their Godly given right, yet even after many women struggled just so that the women of today may be able to voice their opinions in an advancing world such as that of the 21st century, it is unfortunate to see that many women still continue to suffer, as they become victims of abuse, rape, and murder. India is a country where in a world of tradition which dates back to more centuries than one can count, education and moral values have always been held at a high level. However in a country where that is so, the Indian women are degraded daily as they become victims of the ignorance of many so to speak, as the criminals of the cities kidnap, rape, and murder these helpless women. It has become so that the further we step into the future, the more unsafe the streets have become for the women whether it is to walk around by themselves, and to carry on an errand or for a child to even go to school as some of the men have turned out to be some of the top rated criminals in the country have become the filth which degrades the nation of India, our values, and our women. These filthy scum’s are known are rapists. It isn’t something of an awe to call them as such,......

...have greater of fewer mixes of religion. Changes are inevitable. One of the most influential changes witnessed by the Arab world is the change in role of women. There was a time in the past when the women were suppressed and treated like a different species. They were confined to their homes, especially the walls of the kitchen. Later on, waves of feminism were seen in workplaces and outside. The percentage of women in workforce has quadrupled in 4 decades. The number of Arab women attending schools and universities have increased from 13% to 70% in 3 decades. The tremendous economic development over time has had an enormous impact on women. In UAE, the discovery of oil has contributed in women's role in workplace. We find Arab women not only behind the curtains of their houses but also as entrepreneurs, designers, in the field of science, IT, commerce, media, cinema, law and even in the army. Improved health care, education, jobs, facilities have made Arab women independent and self confident. Interlaq project in UAE encourages women to take up jobs in government departments. Most of the Arab nations have recognized and appreciated women although there are places even now where they do not enjoy full freedom. Even in leadership , women are at par with men. The Arab parliaments approved constitutional amendments to give women full potential rights, starting from Syria in 1949, Lebanon in 1952 to Kuwait in 2005 and Saudi Arabia in 2015.

...In India, today, women appear to rule the roost. India as a nation is revered in a feminine form i.e. ‘the Bharat Mata’, the first citizen of our country presently is a woman, many important government posts are occupied by women and educated women are pouring into the professional workforce with profound implications for national and multinational corporations. However, ironically, these are accompanied by news about dowry killings, female infanticide, domestic violence against women, sexual harassment, rape, illegal trafficking and prostitution and myriad others of the same ilk. Gender discrimination prevails in almost all areas, be it social, cultural, economic or educational. An effective remedy for these evils needs to be sought in order to ensure the Right to Equality guaranteed by the Constitution of India, to the fairer sex. Gender equality facilitates the empowerment of women. Since education begins at home, the upliftment of women would be accompanied by the development of the family, the society and in turn, would lead towards a holistic development of the nation.Among these problems the foremost that needs to be addressed is the atrocity committed against females at birth and during childhood. Female infanticide i.e. killing of the female child is still a common practice in many of the rural areas. Further female foeticide is common in some parts of India, despite the passage of ‘Prenatal Diagnostic techniques (Prohibition of Sex Selection) Act in 1994. In case......

...“During the twentieth century, poor women in the Caribbean were pulled into a predictable, gendered, labor pattern operating at investment sites in the region. In this pattern poor men leave home to find temporary, labor-intensive employment in the initial phases of economic development. Women follow later to take up more permanent service employment as maids, domestics, and cleaners” (Almer, 99). The significance of the quote is its showing the emergence of a labor model that has shaped the Caribbean for generations. In the beginning of the twentieth century poor eastern Caribbean women followed male migrant workers to various places such as: the Panama Canal, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Trinidad, Curacao, and Aruba in order to provide for their families. Eastern Caribbean women have developed their own family model, which include non-marital relationships and freedom to travel for work. According to eastern Caribbean social norms poor women are expected to have children and support them financially. This results in women leaving their children with extended family and supporting them by working in distant places (99). During the Pre-1960s women migrant workers found employment as seamstresses, cooks, laundresses, and maids at labor camps located in the Panama Canal Zone, Cuba, and the Dominican Republic (100). When employment on these islands decreased, women followed the labor migrant pattern again by traveling to Trinidad, Curacao and Aruba to perform domestic work......

...Women Weight Loss Promotion Transitioning between the different trends is like a new driver trying to learn how to drive a stick shift. In the United States women have a fear of not looking their best or in style. As a result women turn to magazines to keep themselves updated on the latest fashion. Throughout America having a fit and slim body has been a popular trend. Magazines advertise dietary supplements and workouts to help encourage women to look thinner and get in better shape. Magazines pull women in when women see weight loss supplements that are said to work. Women who are trying to achieve the body that is in style might pay more attention to an ad in the magazine other than women who are already meeting societies’ standards. Magazines show pictures of smaller women in their ads to help encourage larger women to get their bodies like the women in the magazine ads.The women in the ads are extremely pretty, trying to make other women jealous. The picture is also placed on the right side of the ad, that way when someone were to turn the page, the picture of the girl would be the first thing someone would see. That was to draw the attention to the girl of the ad. According to Andrew Mitchell, a professor of marketing at the University of Toronto, says, “Most advertisements contain visual elements, and many advertisements provide little product attribute information. The latter advertisements seem to be designed to either trigger an emotional reaction or portray......

...WOMEN Women in the UAE have been encouraged and empowered since the foundation of the state. This policy is spearheaded by the country's leadership and backed by the UAE Constitution, which guarantees equal rights for men and women in accordance with the precepts of Islam. As a result, the role of women in society has evolved considerably over the years. Today, the economic and social benefits of diversity are universally recognised and embraced and women are viewed as partners in achieving sustainable development. In the twenty-first century, Emirati women are well represented in all echelons of society, including the political arena, diplomatic corps, judiciary and the commercial sector. Four women hold ministerial position in the Cabinet and women form 17.5 per cent of the UAE's partially elected representative body, the Federal National Council. Three of the UAE's ambassadors, one consul general and the UAE's representative to the United Nations in New York are women. Four women have been appointed as judges, two as public prosecutors and 17 as assistant public prosecutors and marriage officials. Women also serve in the armed forces, customs and police. Prestigious government entities, such as twofour54 media free zone, Tecom Business Park and Jebel Ali Free Zone Authority, are headed by women.

...war 500,000 people had joined up and by 1916 this had grown to a massive 2.5 million. Before the war, many women had been fighting to get the vote. These women were called Suffragettes. When the war broke out; women had to pull together to support the war effort. Their hard work led to women over 30 getting the vote In 1918. Before the outbreak of war in August 1914, women held very traditional roles in family life. Working class women were still tied to home or continued to work for very low wages in factories, on farms or as domestic servants. The expansion of women’s education allowed some women to enter careers that were deemed suitable, such as teaching, nursing and office work. Mobilisation of industry was a key factor during the First World War. The side which produced the greater amount of munitions (guns, tanks etc.) stood a better chance of victory. The government extended its power over the economy. There was a huge shortage of workers. Industry and agriculture demanded men but so did the army. The labour shortage needed to be dealt with and women were seen as the perfect people to fill this gap. Although many working class women were already in employment, they mainly held traditional female roles in domestic service or in textile factories and mills. During the war, more opportunities opened up to women and the types of jobs they undertook changed. Women began to make war products such as guns and ammunition, taking on jobs operating heavy machinery and......
