Women today are finding cures for diseases or running their own businesses, instead of being the one at home yet, they do not get the same praise men do. There are still some people that view women as nothing more than just a housewife, there are still some men that believe women are their property. Women are continuously facing judgment and criticism for not being what men want them
Many of these thoughts stem from long-lived stereotypes and how women were treated in the past. Education has become much better, though and men and women both have access to great education. Therefore the reasoning to treat one gender differently from another should lessen. In the past employers could argue that women do not have the knowledge or capability of working for the same amount, but now they
Are women and men ever going to be truthly equal? Men have always dominated over women throughout the years, this occurred greatly in the 1930s. In the 1930’s women had a very important role in the household, but they were limited when it came to careers and wages. Women had important roles in the family, while men usually worked. “In the eyes of society, unless a woman was single and self-supporting, she was supposed to be a homemaker” (Press).
Humans have always had a unique perspective on gender roles. Throughout history, women have somehow became less superior to men. There are multiple variables to how and why this came to be. Whether it was the agriculture revolution, influential literature, or even climate events from the Mesopotamian civilization, males have managed to be more dominant. There has also been harmful sexism perspectives passed down each generation that could have triggered what women can and cannot do.

If women did not stand up for themselves then, women today would not be able to experience all of the freedom they have. Women today are able to receive the education they want and build their own career. However, they do not have the full equality due to men getting paid higher than women along with women getting paid higher than others based on their racial background. Will women ever get paid the same as men do? Or will women continue to be paid less than men?
The assumptions/stereotypes made about women were as if women were maids, powerless, and uneducated people. The nature of women has been judged constantly over the years. Women’s decision such as; the usage of birth control, the decision of abortion, and even women’s right to go to school or work has been judged. During the years of 1890-1925, the men thought of themselves as superior. Men also seen women as inferior to them, physically.
Men and women are human beings and equal in each rule in this life. Although there are differences between them, these differences make them unique and special. In fact, men always think that women are created to be treated as slaves. For instance, they prevent them from saying their opinions and forcing them to stay at home to cook and raise their children.
