So It cannot be denied that gender inequality in workplaces is the most negatively effective on women , because at workplaces , employees should be treated on how they work not either they 're men or women. Despite the huge advances women have made , workplaces don 't recognize that women are equally qualified for the same jobs as men. The government and the society should work on providing fairness to the employees from both gender at workplaces. Gender inequality at workplaces is as any other problem in which there 're people for it and others against , the people with gender inequality sees that women are not able to do work as men , they don 't recognize how women may be qualified as men or even more. The other ones , who are with gender equality , sees the problem from another side.
Liberal feminists argue that our society holds the false belief that women are, by nature, less intelligent and physically incapable than men. It tends to discriminate women in the academy, the political forum, and the market place. Liberal feminists believe that women’s subordination is rooted in a set of customary and legal constraints. Such constraints block the women’s progress and success in the public world. Liberal feminist aims to show that as a human being the capacities of man and women are equal and it fights for the political, legal and economic equality for women.
Feminism is the political movement that achieved social, political and economic equality of the sexes and to change the hierarchical power relations between the sexes. We can say that Mary Wollstonecraft is the mather of feminism is not wrong. She said "if woman is not breeded with education as a head-friends of a man, some obstructions are formed on the spreading of information and virtue, because reality should be accesible otherwise it will be uneffective in the general application." and she makes this sentence a rule. O 'Neill argued that Wollstonecraft learned literacy that is a privilege male-specific in that period and she refused the marriage that is only means of living for girls, and then she left from her home.
The poem 'Phenomenal Woman' begins with directly addressing the stereotypes that are placed on women in society. This is done when Angelou states what she feels a woman's qualities are supposed to be by saying. 'I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size' which shows the reader that while she might be aware of the pressures and expectations that are placed on women, she is not willing to conform to these; an idea that comes from the fact that the first stanza is based around her successes despite being different from what some would call the "ideal woman". This is a way of presenting sexism in the poem because it shows that women are fully aware of the standards that are placed upon them and while this particular part in the poem can be seen as referring to successes, it also raises awareness to the fact that some may still be oppressed due to not adhering to these expectations.
Around the world, females are conjoined with taking care of others. Women are ascribed with the responsibility of their family more than men are. With a look into the family formation, if the daughter disrespects her parents or if the mother does not want to look after her child or if the wife leaves her husband women’s are seen more reprehensible then sons, fathers and husbands. The gender norms set all around the world hold back women by keeping them under pressure and not allowing them to set or reach their own goals. But with new developments the gender norms have and are still trying to change and gain new forms.
In the past, there is no doubt that women were being treated unfairly and live as an inferior to men who count themselves as a superior. Women were not allowed to get education nor had a chance to go to work in the society because they believe that women are born to complete indoor work likes doing the housework or looking after children. However, as the times have passed women nowadays have an equal right just like the men do. Therefore, we strongly support that gender equality policies at the work place should be supported based on a number of reasons including receiving the positive outcome of business, following the Gender Equality Act and promoting Feminism. First of all, promoting gender equality between man and women at the workplace has given a positive overall outcome to business sector .
Lauren Newland Professor Fitzgerald English 1310 25 February 2018 The Feminist Agenda Often times when I tell people that I am a proud feminist, I get a variety of different looks – some are positive and others are negative, but I believe that is because most people have absolutely no clue as to what feminism is really about. Many people believe that feminism is no longer needed in society; after all, women can vote now, so what is the purpose of it in the twenty-first century? Feminism is still needed because some women are still paid less than men (and that is only white women, Hispanic and African-American women make even less than that), even after the United States passed the Equal Pay Act. Feminism is still needed because instead of teaching people not to view women as objects, we teach women how to prevent being raped. Feminism is often looked down upon because of the common misperceptions surrounding the word, such as, being a feminist means hating men, thinking only women can be feminists and that feminists are angry, “butch,” bra-burning, non-shaving, lesbians – those assumptions are incorrect because being a feminist, according to Lauren Jauregui, means being a person who believes in the political, social and economic equality of the sexes.
The sympathy is even the working women who plays a dual role is not recognized. Be it a patriarchal society or matriarchal society, women should be honored and identified as equal to men. The atrocities against women should be stopped. Feminism should be wide spread to address the problems of women promising them a bright insight into the vision of forth coming
Traditionally, women (especially those in underdeveloped countries) have been unable to willingly take part in economic activity. Microcredit provides women with the financial support they need to start business ventures and actively participate in the economy.
