If these statistics have been true for the past decade, there should be more women in higher roles in the workplace. There are still many more men bosses than women although more women earn Bachelor’s degrees. Recently, “women are being cleared to play a greater role in combat — and vie for thousands of jobs — after the military conducted an internal review of how they might perform in artillery, armor and infantry roles” (Chappell). Although it is great that women are now going to be able to have roles in combat, it took many years for them to reach these roles. Since the 1970’s, women have been able to attend service academies.
Women’s contribution to World War I has made a positive impact on politicians and the general public. British women started to earn the respect and admiration they all longed for.

However, the 19th century saw many important works regarding women’s rights being published. One of the most significant of these was John Stuart Mill and his wife Harriet’s 1869 book The Subjection of Women (832). Mill used his unique position as a member of Parliament to have his opinion be heard and carry weight. His wife contributed to the book prior to her untimely death, and the arguments presented were an affront to the norms of European society (“The Subjection”). His opinions defending women’s rights were logical and appealed to humanistic values, arguing that humankind was being held back from its full potential by confining half of the population to the household and not educating them (“The Subjection”).
For many hundreds of years women have endeavored towards gaining equality with men. They have been repressed and opportunities have been taken from them due to the fact that they are women.

The Women’s Sports Foundation recorded that “Male athletes receive $133 million, or 36 percent more, than female athletes in college athletic scholarships each year at NCAA member institutions” ( "Title IX Is Necessary to Reduce Sexual Discrimination in Sports"). Over 100 million dollars more is reserved for men’s athletics rather than splitting up that huge amount of money to offer to female athletes.
