Gender role refers to those behaviors and attitudes that are considered to belong to one sex. Gender role is based on femininity and masculinity that differentiate women and men by giving men some roles and women which results to gender inequality. There some work in society that is regarded to belong to women such as cooking, taking care of children and other less important roles while men are given roles that makes them superior than women. Most of the gender roles associated with women makes them inferior and creates a room to be oppressed. Gender roles are constructed by society and attributed to women or men.
The truth regarding the gender pay gap is that it affects females from different backgrounds, ages, races and educational levels. This ongoing issue does not seem likely to go away on its own. Women, who are as equally trained and educated, with the same experience as men are not getting equal pay. In today’s society, stereotypes are generated concerning women’s capabilities and this result in discrimination. Gender discrimination in work circumstances takes on many different forms; ranging from different payments between men and women who perform the same duties equally as well as when the income of men and women and retirement savings are stacked up against their health care cost and life expectancies, women are much farther behind than men are.
Besides that I will also mention that not just white women make less than men other cultures make even less than them, and I also will share real people speaking up about them being paid less than men. Although I strongly believe that gender equality matters, I will mention the few things I found against my claim as well. Just to make it clear the gender pay gap needs to come to an end so women can get their equal pay. Men
Role of Women in Ancient Empires Throughout the modern world, we mention the concept of equality between men and women and try to equalize their positions in society. It is illogical for women to ask and try to prove that they are equal with men because equality is something that are already given to humanity, but contradicting the role of women by men is what created the gap between them. By looking at history, we can say that accomplishing that goal of making their position equal is not easy. Whenever we start reading a historical context or myth, it is obvious that the role of women is not considered as important compared to men, and women won glory that time when they are mentioned in the arguments the least. If there are women that are mentioned as protagonist, the women usually are described because of their 'outrageous behavior '.
Back in Cady Stanton's time the women were seen as property to men, and if the women did not have men they would not even be considered women, they would be slaves. “After depriving her of her rights as a married woman, if single he taxed her to support a government which recognizes her only when her property can be made profitable to it” ( Stanton 115). Because Cady Stanton changed the way women were treated and looked at by men Maya Angelou was allowed to speak freely about her beliefs on life. When maya Angelou discussed equality she thought of it as a privilege that because men and women are equal all ethnicities should be equal. “The asian, the hispanic, the jew.
Women are fighting very hard to bridge the pay gap. But in order to make men and women equal we must speak up about how the job market is unfair. I believe if you name the problem, give the solution, and get the community involved in supporting to fix this error then you can make change. Something has to be done because there are too many jobs I can think of where women should be getting paid more than men because they are more qualified for example: a doctor because they have a motherly touch, a counselor or psychiatrist because women are known to listen more, and a physical therapist because women are more sensual with their movement and can display that in a massage. Instead it 's the opposite due to this minor thing called gender.
Liberal feminists argue that women have the same capacity as men for moral reasoning and work habits, but that patriarchy, particularly the sexist division of labor, has historically denied women the opportunity to express and practice this reasoning. These dynamics serve to shove women into the private sphere of the household and to exclude them from full participation in public life. Hence, gender inequality is a hazard not only to the highly capable, talented and deserving women but also to the economy as a whole. Both awareness of the existing gender inequality and implementation of policies that address gender inequities need to be strengthened. Reducing the amount of time women spend on unpaid work is also essential.
He attempts to prove that each arguments made by Shackleton is wrong. Even the women that have chosen a well-paid career and completed high levels of education seeking to get bigger earns, they found that men will still be making more money while getting more education as well. Lips also states that even when women enter male-dominated jobs they will get more, but not more than males. For women the dream of narrowing the gender wage gap means to impose in a world made for males. Another suggestion made by Lips was that if the employers continue to consider women’s work such as domestic and caretaker less important, then the gap will never be closed or it will only be good for those women who decide to not to have children.
For example, the nurse states to Juliet “No less? Nay, bigger! Woman grow by men “ (I.iii.96). This quote indicates how men only care about appearance and not what a woman has to show affection for the men. This quote is important to keep thought of because some men can be very open minded and pleasing, but men only care about getting woman pregnant and leaving them afterwards.
