The creation of a happy, peaceful home and the raising of successful children is…” (Cozy) Japanese women have struggled and have been discriminated on the standards men expect of them
While women flooded the workforce and in many cases became the main breadwinner of the family, the jobs that they had were in traditionally female areas, and thereby helped reinforce what was viewed as feminine jobs and what was viewed as masculine jobs.

A women should have a good job, but still be the main care taker of the family. A woman should be strong, but not too strong or shes masculine.

To expose the torment women face, Clinton uses anaphora to conjure feelings of sympathy. She deliberately repeats the same phrase in the beginning of each sentence to emphasize the violation of rights women face and make the idea prominent to the audience. She also emphasizes the “duties” that women are sometimes obligated to do within the family when she states that “families rely on mothers and wives for emotional support and care. Families rely on women for labor in the home. And increasingly, everywhere, families rely on women for income needed to raise healthy children and care for other relatives.” She is able to clarify how women are as equally, if not more important than men when it comes to the responsibilities and how their rights should be treated as
Since the establishment of the roles of society, women have been entitled to feminine roles that focus on family and nurturing. This roles allows for the subordination of women in the workplace since it makes distinctions between ideological constraints between genders. This opens up for the construction of gendered processes, that focus on the placement of roles that only “women” are allowed to acquire because of their practices. The author makes the example of how the managers contribute to gender gap and placement of roles that do not allow for the advancement of women in an organization.

Gender equity faces obstacles like the lack of education for both boys and girls, and the challenges of deviating from societal stereotypes and norms. Nevertheless, if actors from the private and public sector come together, public policy can be created to strengthen women’s lives and rights. Why Gender Equality is Important A Social Justice Issue Women cannot escape poverty, be adroit, nor become autonomous, if they do not have a good-paying job. This is difficult to attain without higher education, in a society who dismisses their employment applications and that teaches women they are submissive and physically, cognitively, and psychologically inferior to men. As opposed to female advancement, women are bombarded with housewife stereotypes that emphasize their role as a sexual being whose job is to serve and please, create a family, and acquiescently look after children and the home.
was very small. This was because women were not allowed to fulfill these jobs successfully (Martin and Jurik). The Equal Pay Act of 1963 says that no employer should treat his or her workers differently because of their gender Everyone that has the same position should be paid the same (Portal-to-Portal Act of 1947). If not paying someone because of their gender is said to be illegal, then
For one, the title of this article barely correlates to what the essay talks about. The Diaspora of Camptown: The Forgotten War’s Monstrous Family is the title, yet the article does not give as much background as to why there was a diaspora in Camptown in the first place, or how there was a forgotten internal war at this site, to begin with. The title lacked correlation to what the essay is written about; instead, the title of this essay should be: The threats within Camptown: The trauma experienced by women as agents and victims of Korea WWII. Thus, with this, the readers would not be misled as to what they 're about to read. In addition, even though this essay used subtitles, the essay was confusing to read.
In our advanced 21st century, it is hard to imagine our society as anything short of perfect. After all, we have come a long way from our seafaring ancestors. However, the reality is that despite how we may sometimes avoid seeing it, our society is anything but perfect. A very prevalent issue today is that despite laws being set in place to enforce the equal treatment of men and women, women all over the world today still face poor treatment and discrimination. Because of how deep and long this problem has run, revising discriminatory laws may not abolish discrimination and legislating laws that endorse gender equality may not necessarily create equality.
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.” The same institute claims that the time span will stretch from a 41 - 215 year wait for equal pay.
