However, some could say that wage equality is a bad thing because it will cost too much. Women athletes should be paid the same as men athletes. If women are paid the same they will be treated the same. “The International Cricket Council funded all the men's teams to fly business class but, only paid for the women’s teams to fly economy class”(Wigmore).
In Korea nowadays, the personality of a person is not judged based on their sex. Women are not expected to be shy and passive; not all women are clean and organized. Men are not expected to be tough and belligerent; not all men are lazy and disorganized. Although gender expectation greatly impacts the Youngers by categorizing them to superior and inferior, it scarcely affects people’s identity in
In the Victorian Era, women hardly had any rights from having jobs to abiding by a dress code. Before they were even married, they experienced prejudice . According to the “The Working and Middle Classes in Victorian Era England”, women were seen (by men) as emotional and unstable to the point where “they were incapable of making rational decisions.” This was completely unfair for women because the fact that they raised kids and managed domestic life showed their responsibility proved that they could make rational decisions. This denies their basic human rights because women have the freedom to think and make decisions.
Equal pay is something women have fought over for a long time, but still haven’t got it. Just because women have only a little less experience as they have to take care of children doesn’t mean they shouldn’t get the same salary. Equal pay is favorable since it boosts the economy, makes the company look better, and helps everyone. Why would equal pay boost the economy, though? Foremost of all, women spend a sizable portion of their income, which leads to higher demand.
The American Women were voiceless, they had no say in society, however the reform movement would change that. Married women had very little rights compared to husband. One major human right violation was women 's lack of property rights.. Even if the property belonged to their family, once they were married that land became their husbands. In divorce and custody battles, mostly favored the husband.
but it is looked down upon in the society. Compared to guys they can be who they wanna be but women can’t due to this role. The society doesn’t see that a person is a person no matter what gender they have. They also don’t see that people don’t have any control of their gender when they are born. The same thing goes for black people in this book.
This does not add up to ‘because her mother is transphobic’. Then, in Save the I-Hotel, opposition could argue that the quote,“Nobody knows you here, just the work you do, just the color of your face” is just a practical implication that Filipino workers simply feel underappreciated by their bosses. Nevertheless, the author cleverly uses words since all of the parts of the sentence perfectly align with each other. The quote, “Nobody knows you here, just the work you do, just the color of your face” has words that represent a tool: “just the work you do, just the color of your face” talk about the characteristics of how we see a tool, which are seeing if the tools works and rusty color of the tool. All of these words placed are with thought.
Is that the point the feminists want to get to. We will live in a country where all will be equal; no freedoms will be granted because with freedoms comes unequal ways in which people are treated. So if they gained their rights years ago why are they still fighting for rights? The right to be treated equal? We cannot control what people say or how they treat you.
While in fact, the wage gap increases as the level of education increases. A woman’s bachelor degree earns only 71.4 % of a man’s salary, and a woman’s graduate degree is worth even less and earns 69% of men with graduate degrees salaries. While in today’s world, students are strongly encouraged to pursue higher degrees to earn more, but for women this is disheartening seeing that the extra effort of pursuing a higher education being unmatched for their efforts. This is the 21st century and America is the land of opportunity, it is pure common sense that hard-working people should receive equal rewards for their efforts.
Small lies that we subconsciously tell ourselves mean nothing in the grand scheme of things, but if we tell ourselves small fibs on a regular bases over small and miniscule problems, what’s to stop us from saying bigger lies when bigger issues arise? One of the biggest issues, gender discrimination, must be abolished since women struggle with the gender pay gap, and unfair treatment in sports, while men struggle with the gender discrimination in divorce cases, mostimes leaving their gender as the main reason the mother receives custody over the child or children. Women may be able to participate in the same profession as men, but the large gap in pay between genders fails to attribute to the positives of said situation. The members of the Institute for Women 's Policy Research have used statistics over the past hundred years to conclude that: “Hispanic women will have to wait until 2233 and Black women will wait until 2124 for equal pay” (Pay Equity). The IWPR states that, “According to our research, if change continues at the same slow pace as it has done for the past fifty years, it will take 44 years—or until 2059—for women to finally reach pay parity.”
2). Women should not have to wait for approval from men. If women want equal rights they should receive them without having to wait on men to come to their senses. I do not understand why men have to “let” women receive what they are entitled to. Also, I did not agree when she said, “you need not be afraid to give us our rights for fear we will take too much – for we won’t take more than our pint will hold” (p. 2).
The equal rights amendment for the United States constitution would allow congress to enforce equal rights between men and women. This amendment would allow women the equal rights to wages, benefits, and opportunities that have been skewed towards men throughout time. However, there is not an amendment currently that enforces these regulations that could create equality for women. As a result, women receive oppression and inequality that can be seen clearly through many statistics and studies. For example, women only receive 83% of men’s wages who obtain equal qualifications.
Based on if you were a woman or a person of color the laws and promises of a free country did not apply. It was unfair that the color of their skin or if they were women determine what rights they had. They were divided into a nation that was supposed to bring people together as one. Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness did not exist at the time. The unfair and lack of rights the Declaration of Independence stated that “all men are equal” did not apply to all.
Another a big issue going around right now, is the one of women being paid less than men for the same job. I have read arguments that this is not true that women just simply pick lower paying jobs like being a teacher. This is a myth, full time women make around .78 cents to the dollar that men make. “President Obama supports passage of the Paycheck Fairness Act, a comprehensive and commonsense bill that updates and strengthens the Equal Pay Act of 1963, which made it illegal for employers to pay unequal wages to men and women who perform substantially equal work. ”(Did
“women should be discouraged from working for wages, as the resultant labor market competition could lower wages for male heads of household; and women needed to abstain from workplaces to uphold their duties as “mothers of the race,” and to provide for other unpaid services in the home.” Novak, Mikayla.
