The Australian Eye & Females leaving[edit]

MandaG -

Week 6 comments re tutorial: Jane Elliott's film: You ask why no females left. I would say it's a little bit of socialisation happening - ie females 'knowing their place' being polite, behaving appropriately as they feel society expects them to. Generally females don't have as much power as males, therefore they tend to adjust to circumstances or manipulate them if they can. In this case I feel that 'blondie' , although very uncomfortable, was experiencing this battle and perhaps it was very difficult or too challenging to assert herself and walk out. Betsy, 30 August.

Gacaca courts[edit]

Re your comments about the restorative justice-type practices in Rwanda following the 1994 genocide, I thought you might be interested in checking out some more info about the Gacaca courts. -- Jtneill - Talk - c 12:58, 10 September 2008 (UTC)
