As stated previously, women in modern Australia have the right to make their own money, meaning that they do not need to get their husband’s consent to work. This proves that women’s life in Australia has changed over the years for the better, giving women an enhanced opportunity to do work of their choosing in a more equal
Under Stephen Harpers government in 2011, women held ¼ of the seats in the house of common. The 2011 election included 452 women candidates out of 1587 in total in which people were running for. The representation of women in politics is not just about the numbers, but is also about the representation of women’s issues such as childcare, pay gap, and other issues that cannot directly be addressed by men. There must be equal voices for Canada to represent both men and women, and therefore, a gender balanced government is important to
Canada’s culture name is Canadian. Canada is a multiracial and multi-religious country; therefore, it was difficult to define a “real” Canadian (Canadian Culture). Although it is hard to define a true Canadian, many of Canada’s art and architectural design, and literature come from the French and the British (Canadian Culture and Traditions). The website, Canadian Culture and Traditions, mentions that because Canadians architectural design originates from the French and the British, Canadians homes are architectural styled from the neoclassical movement. Here are some cultural traditions and etiquette that exemplifies many Canadians.
There are great obstacles hindering women from being represented in government. For example, despite Rwanda having the world’s best representation of women, with 58 percent, President Paul Kagame runs the show. Mexico, in seventh place, tops all of the Scandinavian countries but however, the women have little to no real power. Attitudes about gender-appropriate work and stereotypes about the aptitudes of women are a factor limiting women’s opportunities to gain access to top posts in
After Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation, many men, women, and children led the effort in achieving equality for all people everywhere--regardless of race, religious beliefs, or gender--through nonviolent protests and radical movements. Besides equality between races, equal opportunity between genders is another prominent matter. Many feminists today would argue that while women’s rights have come a long way, the way present-day society portrays women would just prove that we still have a long way to go before gender equality is achieved. Also, in many countries such as Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, and Nepal, women are treated significantly worse than men
Women have been fighting for gender equality for many years. Although humanity is composed by two different genders, females have been more discriminated than males in job positions or education. Race, economic status or ethnicity also made a difference in a women to success. Sheryl Sandberg, in her essay "Lean In: What Could You Do If You Weren't Afraid?", seriously discusses the possible facts that may be impeding the equal success between genders.
Another example would be the Democratic Republic of Congo. Daniele Selby wrote an article about the ten worst countries to live, and she says about the DRC that it is filled with violence and rape. For example, she says ”more than 60% of Congolese women aged 15-49 have experienced violence — around 50% as recently as the past year.” This shows that women living
The mother from Laos, told me that most women in her country were expected to stay home with the children, as was the case in Nicaragua. In Laos, however, if a woman wanted to get a job, a bribe of some kind would need to be offered because the cost of living is low there, and it is expected that both parents would not need to work. Men and women have equal opportunity to education in Laos, but many women do not pursue it once they get married and have children. Women there don’t have to work if they don’t want to, unlike women in the US.
In Canada in 1972 the act for "equal justice under law" called Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) was passed. Despite the fact that women have contended energetically for fairness with respect to balance in workforce there is far to go. Some of the barriers women faces are lack of education in equality, having to leave work for family and society. This holds them back from being empowered and from reaching the top. Their barriers are stopping them from getting to the top and causes underrepresentation of women.
Aubrey Rose A, Barangot English 27B Title Gender Equality: An Established Human Right Thesis Gender Equality and Stereotypes Inroduction The gender equality has been accepted and acknowledged as human rights’ principles since the adoption of charter of United Nations in 1945. Most of the international agreements such as ‘the Millennium Development Goals (2000)’ and ‘the World Conference on Human Rights (1993) have highlighted and stressed the grave need for nations to take appropriate actions against such discriminatory practices. To give clarity to this research, the researcher uses the following definitions: “Everyone has a fundamental right to live free of violence.
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.
