In England, gender division of work is delimited by the occidental society,and as we already know, there is a type of discrimination in this society where women receive less payment than men for the same work, and in the occidental society, there are many paradigms that tend to make women specialize more in emotional, caring services in the health, social work and education sectors, such as being nurses, teachers, secretarial occupations, social workers, psychologists, nanny, etc. In Western society women also do unpaid works in the home such as being housewives and moms. On the other hand, men tend to work in business, engineering, hard manual labor,industries, etc. Also according to our society, men should work for more hours because they are the money providers.

Relationship with social aspects
Differences emerge among Bank of England rate-setters in February





February 18
The Bank of England sees the possibility of keeping the interest rates below 0.5%.
The Bank of England.
Inflation may turn weaker than expected, and this means England will have it fastest growth since 2006.
Inflation could fall below zero thanks to the low oil prices.
Mark Carney
*Carney is one of the most important politic figures in England.

*He is the BoE (Bank of England) governor.

* "UK inflation predicted to fall to lowest level in 25 years".
(Inman, P. 2015)
Martin Weale
*He is a Monetary Policy Committee Member.

*"Inflation is likely to stay very low until the sharp fall in oil prices lies more than a year in the past."

*He is acting with the bank, in order to get inflation back to target.
(The Guardian, 2015).
The interest rate is keeping on hold lower than 0.5 percent because inflation fell last month to 0.3 percent. The main reason for this to happen is the decreasing price of oil. So, inflation is likely to stay at a very low rate.
This affects:
The fact that inflation, interest, and oil price rate is at a very low percentage affects all the population because its affecting all of the country's economy.

Because families with at least one parent that has an addiction need help with their kids all over England.
for Education
*Is the institution responsible for providing education to addicted parents.

*Is the one who provides foster families while parents go through the intoxication process.

Edward Timpson MP
*He is the man who is appealing to the court in order for this to treat more cases.

*Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Children and Families.

*"Importantly, FDAC has the support of parents themselves, which is crucial to its success."

(Gov.uk, 2015)
The FDAC is extending because there is a considerable big amount of parents that are addicts to drugs. There is the need in England for all of them to have access to a court case, so their kids have a future insured.
This affects:
A lot of single mothers, and dysfunctional families. The FDAC is providing help for them so their kids can have a healthy family. As well, they are reducing the opportunity for a kid to be having alcohol and drugs problems when growing up.
The fact that this court is expanding is a relief to many families that have problems with drugs and alcohols.
This court is providing the option of being clean and stop consuming addictive substances, so families are having the opportunity of being healthy for their kids.

"The England form of Government is a constitutional monarchy, which combines a monarch head of state with a parliamentary system. While many consider the England form of government a democracy, which it is in practice, the Queen of England has many titular roles and is officially the head of state, although in practice, she has little political power or influence. The true influence and power in the England form of government comes from the prime minister and the Parliament." (Englandmu, 2013)
The grandmother was walking alongside when the river and strong gust of wind pushed the pram with a 6-month-old baby, felling down into the river.
Di Steer
The Chief Executive Officer of Royal Life Saving Society UK was the one who think that the three of them deserved to be recognized because not everybody does that.
(rlss.org.uk, 2014)
He was the man who jumped straight into the water even though the dangerous it could be. He had struggles because she was strapped in a pushchair but he safe her.
It affects the society because this men are an example for the society and let us know how important is for Britain society the value that is given to Heroism and

Many people after the performance, recognized them as heroes like Det Insp Paul Mathis.

Also, the fact that the baby fell, let them think that they have to be more alert from any danger.

This new was important because it let us now that humanity is not lost. There is still people that care for the others and can do anything to save a life.
What we have to accept is that in this situations like Patricia said, England has to innovate new solutions, to work different which is going to be easier for them than for another country because they have a culture of innovation. This new isn’t particularly going to affect a minority group or gender. Because the economy of all Cumbria will be affected.
