Oregon-Doc. 7). The only job that women needed was motherhood because they were labeled as the idol to their children.According to this women had little independence and were diversified form men.Proper to the stereotype of women, in 1908 the Supreme Court accepted the political constitution of law to protecting women labor and the discrimination of both gender.Women were bias to the stereotype of gender roles and their rights and independence.They were given responsibilities of being mothers and weren’t offered new opportunities.The role that they were given consisted of cooking,cleaning and taking care of their family.In the late 1800s women began to work outside of their homes and started working in factories,farms and etc.Women then began to work male profession jobs The sentiment of this was that men thought that they were better than women and the Supreme Court affirmed that they would limit the working hours for women to protect their health because of public interest for the future of the generation to
The women’s rights movement being an extensive movement helped women to occupy better jobs and higher positions “Increased access to leadership positions is an important achievement because – in terms of gender – the field is more level now: some women will be allies, some are not, but no one is excluded only for being a woman”. Today, women can choose to occupy the jobs that were once titled only for men and they have an equal employment opportunity “Because of workplace rights, women enjoy freedom to work in almost any position they choose. They join the armed forces, work as cab drivers, own businesses and become executives in large corporations” Women can now become ministers, juries, senates, and even the president “1975 — In Taylor v. Louisiana, the court denies states the right to exclude women from juries….1981 — Sandra Day O’Connor is appointed as the first female U.S. Supreme Court Justice… 1997 — Madeleine Albright is sworn in as U.S. Secretary of State. She is the first woman in this position.” The women’s rights movement encouraged women to fear nothing and to refuse to be a part of the crowd or go with the flow, but to act as individuals that have values and
Although heated with the increase in women 's employment households, they became more and more feel the unequal status of men and women, wishing to change their static diligent housework labor low role, demanding equal rights and chances with men. Famous women leader Betty was representative of the contemporary American women 's movement. She wrote a Book of servility secret, revealing the traditional American culture on women 's role imprisonment and definition and called on that the majority of families and women should break the family bound to seek self-value of life. This thought had awakened many American traditional family women, and they began to be not satisfied with the family to bring the sense of accomplishment, began to find their own identity and the right social role. In particular, a lot of knowledged women, due to a good education, had a stable income base.
Because men thought less of women in this time period, the fact that Skeeter has such enthusiasm about starting her writing career causes everyone to make her feel very discouraged. According to Stockett, people believe that because she is a woman, Skeeter isn’t capable of upholding a job that is so prestigious as to be a writer. Because of this, Skeeter has to fight back to everyone to prove that she is smart enough and able to pursue a career in this field. Because most women are known for holding the role of a stay at home mother who dedicates their lives to their families, Skeeter’s motivation to reach for her dreams is very dampened considering everyone doubts her abilities. This is quite significant because even though people are making it very clear that they don’t believe she can achieve her dreams, Skeeter is putting forth all her might to prove them wrong.
Slaughter response some critics said that she was setting a poor example for career women. While others found an interest in Ms. Slaughters preaching about a feminist focus on the problems of the rich and powerful. Ms. Slaughter has now expanded her views into a book. “We often cannot control the fate of our career and family,” (Slaughter).
Schlafly argued that women’s goal was ‘to love and be loved’ or to have a family and children. She backed her argument up with how women can achieve this goal quicker than men even who instead ’search 30 to 40 years for accomplishment in their profession.’ NOW wanted women in professions and wanted them have a sense of fulfillment from it. They wanted to see girls interested in their abilities and education and women entering colleges and the professional field. They wanted to see women their for work and skills and not simply as the ‘token appointment’ in various unnecessary positions for show. Women being in the workforce were not a priority for Schlafly.
Both woman tried to advance at the peak of motherhood while tending to a family of children. However, Tillie Olsen viewed motherhood as a hindrance to her success. She allowed herself to indulge in self-pity, at times seeming regretful to her parenting position. Although she never swayed from her mothering duties, an image of depression marks her character and a jealousy towards the male class is portrayed, as she relates in her story: "But where it is forced because of the circumstances for the sex into which one is born – a choice men of the same class do not have to make in order to do their work." In contrast, Anne Tyler, while assuming the identical role of a mother with similar obstacles in her career advancement, accepted her destiny and embraced it with love and a sense of fulfillment, as quoted in her essay: "They may have slowed down my writing for a while... after all who else do you have to love, no matter what?"
Harriet Martineau she also studied society in political, religious, and race relations. The most interesting thing I pick this theory is because of education and work of women. “She was well aware that intellectual occupation was not assumed best fit for girls in society” (Spender, 1983). According to her, she had observed at her young age that it was not consider proper in society for ladies to study conspicuously and holding pen in her hands. In ‘Supporting the early campaign for higher education for women, Martineau ironically dismissed those who thought the whole purpose of such was merely to fit women to be ‘companions to men’ and ‘mothers of heroes’.
The Unemployment Insurance (UI) Act helped to achieve this objective. It was believed that the married women were draining the unemployment insurance fund and therefore, an amendment to the UI Act disqualified married women from UI benefits unless certain conditions were fulfilled that proved her attachment to the labour force. Additionally, the lack of childcare facilities made most women see home as their first priority so as to nurture her young ones. A survey of married women in the labour force conducted by the Department of Labour in 1958 in eight cities in Canada found that only a minority had recourse to organized daycare facilities and in the absence of such facilities, grandmothers and other relatives, older children and neighbours looked after young children while mothers had to go to
Not only can removing the gender factor reduce the number of barriers associated with females, but it can show that a company is willing to give every employee an equal chance which can lead to attracting newer potential experienced employees of both genders. Ultimately, gender equality can boost a company’s overall economic
