If we are able to frame this issue in a way that resonates with others then we will be able to recruit more individuals and create a social movement powerful enough to stop or at least minimize the dehumanization of women. In some cases people are just not aware of how the media plays such a huge role in shaping our society and they just need to be pushed in the right direct to realize the truth.

Historically, women in America have been behind other countries when it comes to sports. In the 1700’s Germany and France first realized that physical education should include women. Women in the US were not banned from sports, but it was looked down on. Even in Jordan Baker's era most men seemed to look down on women athletes. The Olympics allowed women to compete in 1900.
Even though women 's lives improved during the 1920s in many ways, they still faced inequality in the workplace. Women gained the right to vote and new freedom in the 1920 's, but they were still discriminated against in the workplace. They were prevented from most well-paying jobs and middle and upper-class white women were expected to stay home instead. Most poorer women still held jobs that were low paying and struggled to work to support themselves and their families. Women worked longer hours and got paid significantly less than men did.
Although many women did not question that way of life, there were some who hated it. In the article “Women and the Great depression” in the Gilmer Lehrman Institute of American History, Susan Ware wrote, “Women who sought relief or paid employment risked public scorn or worse for supposedly taking jobs and money away from more deserving men.” That quotation puts into perspective how women were treated as inferior to men. Women have also come a long way from the 1930s; they are now able to get almost any job they want. However, there still is a wage gap, and many men think they are better than women. In conclusion, women were not treated as equals to men, but they were still treated better than
Lady Macbeth was thought of as being “abnormal” or weird just because she wasn’t the stereotypical woman which really reflected how women were thought of back then. Wanting power does not make you a man and Lady Macbeth had no other way to gain power other than through her husband. Nowadays it’s more common for women to be in charge but men are still the more “powerful” ones which makes it harder for women to feel comfortable being a leader. This insecurity has built up over the years and still stays with women all over the world. LIke Lady Macbeth she felt like she couldn’t do anything herself and needed a manly figure to do her deeds.
What would come to mind if suddenly women had the right of fighting alongside men in combat on the frontlines? A place that was once strictly for a man 's mind only - where courageous women were forced to do else wise - not allowed to fight for her own country? More and more women are pushing for the right to fight, and while others oppose it, some highly support the idea. Women deserve the right to fight on the frontlines because they have the ability to reach the same strength goals as men, they would not have to disguise themselves anymore, and plenty of new jobs have the possibility of being created. The main issue here is that women feel, and want to try to prove, they have what it takes to fight with men.
Modern day sport for women has become an opportunity to generate income and publicity through the use of over-sexualised athletes on advertisements. The main questions regarding this issue are why athletes agree to do so and how it affects them and others that view these advertisements. The undermined publicity and funding for women, as opposed to men in elite sport, creates a larger desire for women to generate income by other means. As well as this, the hurtful stereotypes that are assigned to women who do not participate in ‘feminine ' activities add to this ambition. The media further increases this over-sexualised view by the points of focus during the recording of sport and gender marking.
Women deserve the same pay as men in society because women work just as hard as men. For most of history women did not have the same rights as men. They were not allowed to vote or to own property.

“The forces that drive pay inequity are complex, but among the likely reasons for Texas’ gaps are slow growth in state workers’ pay overall, the tendency of white men to get top-paying jobs and the state’s inattention to the issue” (Mcswane 2). Another thing that undermines all types of workers is the slow rate in which pay is increasing because men are the people with higher paid positions in jobs they are not obtaining more money and neither are women. Women must wait for the men above them to start earning more before they can get a raise but this still does not provide equal pay. Yes women are getting paid more but so are the men either stays the same or continues growing. “Women have struggled to regain jobs in the recovery and continue to face high levels of long-term unemployment, even as their families rely on them more heavily for financial support” (National Women’s Law Center 5).
This isn’t just about a football team getting paid or a basketball team getting paid. If only one of these teams are getting paid or even both. Many people in other sports will be aggravated because most athletes believe that they are just as athletic and should be paid if the others are. This is where college would struggle paying all the athletes because track teams do not bring in nearly the same amount of money as a football team does.
