According to Treiman and Terrell (1975) women’s status in society was based upon the success of their husband and therefore education was seen as less important for women to achieve than their spouses, education was thought to be a luxury for women rather than a right like it was thought to be for men. This concept of education lead women to believe the education they received was a reward (Mickelson, 1989). The traditional assumption of a woman’s lack of right for an education can lead women to allow themselves to value their opportunities in their academics. This concept brought about a role reversal for males and females in education, beginning in the 1990’s
She ultimately wants to have a purpose in society instead of others seeing her an object through her appearance. Similar to Monica, Vivie does not want her position in society to have a duty as a woman. Instead she explains “I must have work and must make more money then I spend. But my work is not your work” (Shaw 1828) to illustrate the difference between herself and her mother. Thus, Vivie challenges her mother by separating her mother and daughter relationship and prove her
She explains that “a women at a certain age not married is considered a deep personal failure, but a man who is unmarried they think he just hasn 't come around to making his pick.” In society, we hold different standards for both male and female this is were feminists demand for equality plays a vital role. In addition, Adichie explains how when she was a teacher she was not worried about the material she would teach; instead she was worried about the professional female appearance she would have to uphold. She claims if she looked more serous and perfusion all she would be more respected but the males in the class. Based off this topic many might say, well the way women dress is a power they have. Adichie calls this power “bottom power”.
Because of some statistics about women 's work, Hekker views her work as unique work which needs special care. However, the author mentions that people view her as an outsider, shamed, and out-of-date person because of her occupation. Hekker adds that other newer statistics put her hope down as the number of housewife mother is decreasing. Thus, the author clarifies that she must be treated as an important and unique creature because she is going to be one of the few housewives. Hekker concludes by mentioning that being a housewife is a heroic job if and only if the works that a housewife does is for children, husband, and house of someone else.
Typically, society and family are the forerunners on what is believed by each new generation, leaving little room for change. Having a system based in tradition could, and most likely will, result in poor outcomes. Traditionally, women are seen as the weaker sex, the homemaker. This began to pose a problem when there became need for women to go out and find work in order to keep their families and themselves alive. Within the United States, immigration played a role in this.
Despite being given suffrage and the ability to be employed many women voted to return to a more classic system. The contrast is stark, “while American feminists were demanding entry into the paid work, poorly paid German women dreamed of escaping from it.” This compounded with a poor economy that Weimar intentionally caused led to a sense of relief in someone who wanted to bring economic prosperity like Hitler. People often say they would support a system that is live and let live, but this tends to not be the case when it impacts their family. Nazi women condemned Weimar for its “Cultural decadence, sexual license, materialism, and disorder” which gave them a moral stance to oppose liberalism. The decline in birth rates also caused further unrest drawing in more religious women, especially Protestants, causing “national alarm
Interventions and assessments do not always persuade victims who are emotionally involved. This study did not talk about the emotional connection these women have with their abusers. This may be due to it being socially acceptable or that they feel they will not be loved by anyone else so they let it happen. In past articles, we have discussed how socioeconomic status and educational properties play a role in how a person may carry out their life. In this article, educated women were more likely to leave an abuser than a lesser educated woman.
All they need is education and encouragement.” With education, girls and women can start businesses, and have more success with financial services. It is argued that due to lack of education, women may not be able to understand the loans they are taking out or keep track of their finances, “leading to an accumulation of debt the women are unable to repay,” (The Hidden Ways Microfinance Hurts Women, paragraph 5). However, when women have the money for education for themselves and their daughters, they can understand their loans and financial situation so that they can profit. Micro-loans empower women to save money for schooling for the purpose of understanding how to run a business, and how to pay back their loans. They make it possible for women to educate their daughters, so that their daughters will understand be able to gain success from microfinance, and be able to stay out of
Just because we are taught jobs have a set gender. That if a woman actually enjoys something only boys are supposed to like, then they are “fake” and “doing it for attention.” For women who actually achieve what they want in life, they are accused of “being selfish” Wow, I wonder who she slept with? Does she even love her family? She must be a secretary for the boss.While she could be the co- owner of the company, she is still looked down on, like she hasn’t earned it. Women are expected to make life choices such as choosing the right partner, get married or not, have children or not.
Gender inequality will be reduced when people change their mindset that woman have no greater uses other than child birthing and taking care of the house, and open up their eyes to see that a woman's potential is as great as any man's. Society needs to stop pressuring and moulding not just females but people as a whole into playing preordained roles, for this would cause the cycle of gender inequality to go on forever. To make a change, people have to start thinking differently, and when prejudice against women is come pelts eradicated, the complete eradication of gender inequality will
