The type of work women do when trafficked is of direct consequence of gender hierarchies and reflects the social standing and limitations set upon women. The work is feminized and more often takes the form of emotional labor. Trafficked women who perform emotional labor, through prostitution and other services, work “primarily through a gender lens” (Kang). The ‘femaleness’ associated to women creates a sexual division of labor whereas women perform internal household duties which further isolates them within the private sphere. Women in Southeast Asia are less empowered than men due to societal constraints.
This changes the perception of feminism as it highlights the necessity to alter the gender roles and gender identity. Additionally, Macdonald (2005), explains transgender individuals experience discrimination from their reassigned gender community and their previous gender community. For instance, women who transition to a man appear as though they are abandoning womanhood. Whereas, men who transition to become a woman are disregarded as truly being a woman who can participate in the feminist movement. This signifies the continued limited scope feminism abides under.
Not only students but also teachers exposed to discrimination. Students feel that male teachers are ‘more intelligent’ than female teachers, but female teachers are ‘more caring’ than male teachers. Unfortunately, it has become a tradition for societies on Earth. Although women is the crucial part of the labor force, their successes and presences are ignored. Many inequalities and discrimination based on gender discrimination is applied in business.
This results in women taking jobs in lower positions or that pay low, since their lack of recent experience and hours worked in the past are found unappealing to employers who seek employees who are motivated and committed. This absence of female employment in high paying professions is directly correlated to the gender pay gap. Although women can be just as ambitious as men, motherhood greatly decreases their average income and affects which jobs they will be hired for in the future as well. One common theme that emerges from these sources is the emphasis that women take different career paths and career choices than men, resulting in a misinforming gender pay gap by the media. This is also an example of how social norms is an important factor to this wage gap.
The most prominent point of The Second Sex is to illustrate how women are segregated from society by men, something which happens a lot in Heart of Darkness. De Beauvoir explains to the audience that men and women often do not understand one other and because men hold a higher social status in a patriarchal society, they have made women the ‘Other’ group in society. This is made evident by De Beauvoir’s following quote: “To pose Woman is to pose the absolute Other, without reciprocity, denying against all experience that she is a subject, a fellow human being.” (De Beauvoir 1266). As a consequence of not understanding women, De Beauvoir explains, men use this false sense of mystery as an excuse not to understand women or their problems. In Heart of Darkness the narrator Marlow believes that women live in their own naïve little world and that they should not interfere with the affairs of men, which he states in the following
(Zinn, 2005) Women are not represented appropriately at all levels of governments’ decision making in community, but specifically at national and regional levels. The legal system in most of the countries discriminates particularly against women in the fields of inheritance, family law, land ownership, property, criminal law and citizenship. The prosecution of cases, in most of the countries, involving violence against women is difficult and complex. The discrimination specifically against girls and women- including economic discrimination, gender-based violence, harmful conventional practices and reproductive health inequities- remains the most persistent and pervasive form of inequality. Moreover, girls and women bear extra hardship during, as well as, after conflict and different humanitarian emergencies.
So such inequalities oppress women and they lose opportunities like less accessibility to education, become dependent on males socially and economically. Providing girls with an education could be advantageous in a number of ways. For instance, many economical and sociological theories speculate that women’s education empower women through contribution in a labor force (Benavot 17). As a result this increased labor force contributes to high level of GDP. Yet Pakistan is very unfortunate in educating women and comparatively lack basic female education.
In the 1930s, women did not have as many options for the workplace because men were preferred for most jobs because they knew they needed to support their families; although, employers also wanted to employ women because they did not have to pay them as much money. “You must do the things you think you cannot do.” said Eleanor Roosevelt (BrainyQuote).One always has to believe in themselves no matter what. Women today do not get paid less than men. It all depends on the job. So, as one can see, the world has changed quite a bit since the 1930s.
Some followers of the Hadith support this because it mentions, “Women are not suited for positions of power.” However, by having women not able to receive an education, they cannot as easily find work, are unable to provide for themselves and their families, and are dependent upon their husbands. This can force women to marry men and stay with them when they do not wish to because they rely on them for the income. On top of that, the 25% of women who are working, do not have the same job opportunities as there are many “male only” jobs. Furthermore, they are getting paid way less than men. The Muslims world’s governments need to change and support women empowerment by allowing women to advance in their careers, be able to get high authoritative positions, and start paying women equally.
to be overlooked for promotions or opportunities because of subtle gender bias about leadership aptitude. to take a career break or a less ambitious job because affordable childcare isn 't readily available in Australia, or because of traditional cultural expectations in Hong Kong where almost a quarter of women stop working when they get married.” This shows that women don’t have it as good as men when it comes to pay income, And when it comes to society. This also shows that society needs to make a change and make everyone equal no matter what their gender is or what they
