However, the main purpose is to stop using federal money to support sex discrimination in programs. Title IX still exists to open up opportunities for women, offering equality for all people, and to advance women in professional sports while preparing them for the world. Title IX levels the playing field as well as opens up
For instance, in a study done by Dr. Katherine Young and Paul Nathanson, they concluded that men are additionally derided, rejected, and even abused in media in addition to being unintelligent, and that these same actions would never be done in the media with female characters in our culture (Abernethy 351). This is a prime example of gender inequality in our TV media nowadays, which shows the lack of television programs with intelligent men and women combined nowadays. This also shows that if a show featured an unintelligent woman and an intelligent man (its vice versa for many shows nowadays), it would be either be heavily criticized by feminist groups or receive no positive support in modern America culture. Astonishingly, even many men would be not in favor for that idea of a show, since it would ridicule a woman the same way the media ridicules men on modern television programs. This is irritating to many men because the modern media allows programs that depict men negatively to air on a regular basis, resulting in gender inequality in the media.
People should be allowed to compete with other people if they have either high or low level of testosterone. For example, if a female gender is born with more testosterone, then they should still be allowed to compete with other female contesters. In this case, for example, Caster Semenya was banned because she had an abnormal amount of testosterone level than what the IOC declared for female levels of
College isn’t for everyone. A lot of high school students drop out, so what makes people think that they’ll go through college? From DoSomething.org, I found that 1.2 million high school students drop out just in the U.S. alone. That’s a student every 26 seconds or 7,000 a day. Some statistics show that 25% of freshmen in high school don’t finish high school on time.
The statistics vary, but the average female worker is said to earn $0.77 cents for every dollar a man earns doing the same job. Likewise, Yale University conducted a study where they gave identical job resumes to potential employers labeling one with the name John and the other Jennifer, and John was offered, on average, $4,000 more in annual income. Both “John” and “Jennifer” had the same qualifications and the same amount of education, though for some unknown reason, the male candidate was viewed as more valuable. This kind of gender discrimination displays how women have an unfair disadvantage in the American workplace.
Many studies have proven to show that male sports have been portrayed and highlighted more often than female sports (Morris, 2016). Personally, as a student athlete at Seoul Foreign School, I have also noticed the difference in attendance for female student games in contrary to male student games. It is perplexing to know that approximately 40 years ago, women and girls were deprived of the opportunity to play sports at all. Including universities, colleges, high schools, junior high schools and major events. Therefore, gender inequality is prominent within
These accusations are also known as gender stereotypes where certain activities are done by a certain gender only. Most of the time, such labels construct the development of unfair and unequal treatment for either one of the genders. In some cases, religion also contribute to the rise of gender inequality. Many women especially in a Muslim country suffer gender discrimination as many believe that women are not compatible to become the leader of the country and think that men are more capable to take up the responsibility to become a leader. Women in Muslim countries most of the time are known to be housewives and look after the children.
Although men and women are equal to each other under the law, they are certainly not viewed equally in the world of sports. The media can shape the publics perception of women in sports whether that means they are talented, skilled, athletic women, or women who are only playing sports to appeal to an audience. Whether reporters are asking Eugenie Bouchard to ‘twirl’ to show off her outfit or calling women ‘girls’, the media is minimizing women’s talent in the sport industry. The sex appeal of women is more prevalent in the sports industry rather than the skills and talent that a female athlete attributes.
A study conducted at Ohio State University showed that high school students suffered catastrophic head injuries three times more frequently than college players in American football. One of the main reasons for the large amount of head injuries is that in high school a medic isn’t present to make the students stop playing. The student will then either keep playing or return to the sport too soon (Gunner). The most common injuries for girls happen in cheerleading and basketball. Cheerleading leads with sixty-five percent of all head injuries in 2015.
First of all the lack of women at high ranged jobs leaves the women who are situated in middle management to turn to male mentors. Cross-gender mentor relationships are more challenging than same-gender mentor relationships. This can be explained by the perceptions men, and women have to each other (Ragins & Cotton, 1991). Women are more reluctant to start a mentor relationship with a higher positioned male because choosing an opposite sex for mentoring can be perceived as a sexual advance and can cause a lot of gossip and harm the public image of both partners (Ragins & Cotton, 1991). It is known that women and men are more at ease building a professional relationship with the same sex as they experience the same prejudices and can relate with one
Diana Taurasi is the all time best female basketball player. She trains and plays as hard as the NBA players do. So why does she not get paid as much as they do? Here are some reasons why the (WNBA) Women’s National Basketball Association should get paid more.
In the first place, to address the ratio between boys and girls sport activity, the gap is closing. In fact, in 1970 female participation was nearly 0 percent in high school sports then by 1980 it rose to 50 percent and in 2000 increased another 20 percent (par. 5). That is extraordinary change, however it is not because if the institute of title IX but instead it is the result of a major culture shift within the United States and had nothing to do with title IX. Back in the 1970s girls weren’t prevented from playing sports but it was a stigma of females in
All through 1968 and 1978, there was an estimated one hundred percent increase of female science and engineering majors in the US. Between 1971 and 1972, a study of over four hundred and forty campuses nationwide displayed that about seventeen percent of the polled STEM majors were women (unintentionally, there was limited discrimination in the American Education System). For the women who applied to engineering programs were enlisted at the same rates as men. Unfortunately, it was estimated that women made up about five percent of engineering majors in that period. Similar efforts and supporting actions were enforced throughout the US to increase recruitment rates in the STEM system.
If the players or team aren’t very talented then tickets won’t sell, jerseys won’t sell and college won’t be supported, therefore making less money. However, if the team is very exceptional then the opposite occurs the college receives a glorious payday every weekend. Many others agree that college players should be paid as well. In a survey conducted at Hillsborough Middle School, in Pod 7/8c, 14 out of 20 students believe that college athletes should be paid. The other 30% of students believe that college athletes shouldn’t be paid only because of their age, only being in highschool and because they haven’t made it big.
First, scholarships aren’t being benefited from due to the lack of time the athlete has. Second, student-athletes often end up with low paying jobs, so a pay rate in college could help them out after finishing school. Third, college sports have profited millions of dollars off of these student-athletes and they only receive a scholarship. Make it or break it, one former athlete works a minimum wage job, while a rookie in the professional league is making millions. The lesson learned is that college athletes are being exploited.
