Who invented these everyday items? Women. Women’s involvement in the working world have contributed to many items that would be missing from the world today; if they had not been allowed to work.. Women have struggled with sexism in the workplace since before they were even given the chance to try to work. They were taught from a young age that their job was to provide children, cook, and clean for their husbands, while the husband worked and provided the money. What men did not know however was that women were capable of so much more(Jewell, Hannah).
Socialization Gender stereotypes are over-generalizations about the characteristics of an entire group based on gender. Even though gender stereotypes have been perceived as having negative connotations, they can also have positive ones as well. We typically are defined by society due to gender roles which refers to the attitudes, behavior, and activities that are socially defined as for each sex and are learned through the socialization process. I believe when you have a society that has a manual on how to be a “REAL MAN” or “REAL WOMAN” and each sex has to have certain attitudes, behavior, and activities in order to be considered that is when stereotypes come into hand. We forget that men or women may do what the other does in their everyday
A women should have a good job, but still be the main care taker of the family. A woman should be strong, but not too strong or shes masculine. These stereotypes are not helpful to society and only lead to judgement. Gender roles don’t just effect women, they hurt men too. "Men are Stuck" Emily Alpert Reyes discusses the stereotypes that surround men.
Gender role refers to those behaviors and attitudes that are considered to belong to one sex. Gender role is based on femininity and masculinity that differentiate women and men by giving men some roles and women which results to gender inequality. There some work in society that is regarded to belong to women such as cooking, taking care of children and other less important roles while men are given roles that makes them superior than women. Most of the gender roles associated with women makes them inferior and creates a room to be oppressed. Gender roles are constructed by society and attributed to women or men.
Why are gender inequalities proving so difficult to surpass? I think it is because gender stereotypes are simply in the mind, but we need to change that now! People just assume that women should stay at home and men should do the work even though laws state that all men and women are equal. This stereotyping is something that seems natural to people. If we all work together, we can change this state of thinking about men and women’s roles in society.
Such type of women who use misandry as a tool for feminism, go against the very idea of what feminism stood for and stands for i.e., achieving egalitarianism by letting women work alongside men and by empowering women so that they could be equal to men in every aspect. Some sections of feminists seem to think that the world would be a better place if matriarchy replaces patriarchy, and if they could be dominant instead of men. It’s the extremist thinking which has made feminism look like a conspiracy or a man hating cult which wants to replace patriarchy with matriarchy instead of striving for equality between men and women. The problem arises when some women start hating men as a whole, and want to be the dominant sex or when women are ridiculed by women for their choice of relationships like marriage and when they criticize women for wanting to stay at home instead of working. Furthermore, when feminists choose to blame all men instead of the few, just because they have been oppressed or offended by some, they are being sexist as sexism means, discrimination based on sex or gender, or the belief that men are superior to women and thus discrimination is
The issue of status as regards the males and the females is what dictates the way in which males and females are regarded in the event that they violate the prescribed code of conduct that is attributed to their respective genders. According to Feinman, in relation to the social status model, he writes that the men have a status that is superior to that of women. Going by the model on social status, then men will more often than not face an unfavorable evaluation, should they violate the prescribed code of conduct for their gender this is because, the violation means that they lose class when they deviate from a status of a higher nature to a status that is low. For women whenever they deviate from perceived traits are assumed to be transforming from a lower status to a higher status. Hence the social perception with regard to the violation of gender role stereotypes is positive to a large extent.
We have been programed to assume that males should act one way and females should act one way. When these genders act a way that is out of society’s lines, then it is looked down upon and considered a sanction. Less people felt comfortable to come out into the LGBT community so, it was less understood. Now in today’s society, more people are comfortable coming out, and we are becoming more understanding and breaking down the walls of the definition that confines gender to act a certain way. I agree with this because who are we to limit someone to act a way that they believe they were born
He also argues that men and women are equal and any inequality that exists is not natural but a social construct. Since men and women are equal morally and intellectually, women should not be placed in an inferior position to men. The arguments of Mill’s are still relevant because women still suffer humiliations from the society. In Western Europe and North America, women have made tremendous progress in the fight for equality with men, but that is not the case in many parts of Africa and Asia. In Saudi Arabia, for example, women cannot drive or move freely without accompaniment of a male relative as a chaperon.
Being feminist is about wanting everybody to have equal rights, so that includes men. Not many men are encouraged to be feminist. That's because they see feminist as a term or belief that only applies to women. They think feminism is about women having the power and the rights. Men are now being invited to be feminist and be in campaigns.
