Wives especially are expected to be submissive and weaker than their male counterparts. Within marriage, wives are frequently assumed as homemakers while their husbands pursue the paycheck. As a result, husbands are viewed as more successful and powerful financially, politically, and socially. However, much of this success can actually be attributed to their wives, Without the
Throughout American society, Women have been downgraded in the face of men. In america’s past, women were seen purely as housewives, and had no place in a higher position. Today women have many more rights, putting them on much more equal terms as men. With this, women have shown their capabilities and their worth to society, leading its progression, and proving that the arguments of the anti-suffrage movement were initially the opposite of what women could really do. The arguments that women’s place is only at home and that men have the sole job of running government and society has been proven wrong by women in contemporary society.
We have grown so much as a country and women have more rights but our roots of sexism and rape culture will never be gone. It seems as if though women have fought so hard just to take tiny steps. On the other hand, a man can take tiny steps and gain so much. Men are protected from all the dangers of the world including the dangers they have created
Therefore, women should have equal rights and not be treated differently. When it comes to higher wages women are often paid less even though they do the same work as men. Women earn an average of seventy-seven cents for every dollar earned my men(Anonymous). Women aren’t being represented in higher paying fields meaning that men are most likely taking those jobs and leaving the women without a chance to get in and getting a similar wage.The median annual earning for white females is
The author touches on the subject of rape and its relation to black women’s history of oppression, and how the word may be sensitive to some women because of that exact history. I found this aspect of the reading to be very interesting, and even hurtful to read. The author also touches on the idea that younger generations are taking feminism in a new direction, while older feminists are feeling left out and not included in activist movements like the “Slut Walk”. I personally, have always sort of found something off about activist movements like this and have realized, being to a few that there can still be a severe divide in women when it comes to race, age and sexual orientation. If the point of these activist movements is to bring women closer together, Reger makes me wonder if these movements are doing the opposite.
The Right To Women The life to a woman is not comparable to a man. Unfortunately, today some members of society still perceive women as individuals operating under these same limited expectations. Therefore, women continue to be affected by stereotypes concerning prejudice. In Kate Chopin’s short story of “The Story of An Hour”, the Eavan Boland poem “It’s A Woman’s World”, the non-fiction piece “The Good Housewife”, and Zora Neale Hurston’s novel of Their Eyes Were Watching God, the authors argue that male dominance over women can make them convinced they are set to a lower standard. Women are blinded to the inequality they receive from society until they are set free.
Like the fact that women make up the majority of the lowest paying jobs. Raising the minimum wage would make a significant differences, said Graves. Others have said the increase is a result in the decline of men in the labor force -- not improved conditions for women. For some women, it 's even bleaker. Black women make 64 cents and Latinas make 56 cents for every dollar earned by a white man.” (cnnmoney) Now this really gets me upset because we know the gender pay gap is there but nothing is helping or getting fixed.
Even though many changes have been made in an effort to stop this problem, it is not fully over yet. Women are still being discriminated against in the workplace even when they do an equal job. Women should not have to endure some discrimination just because of their genders. It is unfair for employees to decide that women are worth less than men. This problem has caused many women to come forward and fight, but that alone cannot solve the problem.
These high profit companies are able to cheapen, and mass produce their products because of higher workers from less developed countries. With no laws to protect those natives, companies are not forced to pay a minimum wage or even provide health benefits or even a safe environment for workers these situations are classified as sweat shops. Developing these relationships with less developed countries only increase profit margins for the companies. With companies only wanting more money, more and more Americans are loosing their job and having their pay cut because of companies still having traditional work environments in America having to compete with rivals who do not have to adhere to worker
Especially in a country where we pride ourselves in being united there’s not much unity on this topic. Hopefully it won’t take 81 years for women to have the same pay as men. There’s a big difference in what women are being paid compared to men, it’s not just something that happens to adults and the United States isn’t even the worst , though it’s also not the best. The goal should be for women to unite around the world and say they’ve had enough. Women should be more worried about this than they appear to be, because this affects all women, not just your neighbor or a friend but every person that prides themselves in being a woman.
The MRM uses the experiences of male rape victims to put down, and silence, the female victims. They don’t treat the sentence ‘Men get raped’ as a complete sentence they feel the need to add the word ‘too’ at the end, suggesting that rape can’t be a feminist problem because it’s also been experienced by men. The MRM are a part of the war on women even if they don’t believe that the war on women is real. Movements like the MRM are the reason that many of women’s achievements, and most of feminism, were omitted from history
