How softball being re-added to the Olympics would create a better world for women. These two combined are effective in the sense that she is creating passion and using her bias in an effective way. She is using her love for softball to tell them she isn’t the only one who cares this much, but that there are millions of others like her. She wants the audience to know how much this affects her and many others like her who are passionate about the sport. She also uses bias to convey the audience when she wraps up her ideas at the end.
However, the main purpose is to stop using federal money to support sex discrimination in programs. Title IX still exists to open up opportunities for women, offering equality for all people, and to advance women in professional sports while preparing them for the world. Title IX levels the playing field as well as opens up
Gender Inequality in sports is an issue as old as sport itself. I choose this topic because we as a society seem to sweep it under the rug time after time. Women in sports however, try to address the issue only to have it go on deaf ears, leaving them to continue in the sport hoping something will change. Over the last few decades, strides have been made, but he sport remains an institution dominated by men. These women, whether they are in sport or in the business world, want a fair chance to be on the same level as their male counterparts.
Federally funded universities and institutions were required to give women the same athletic opportunities and funding as men. “Research has found that girls who play sports are less likely to get pregnant or take drugs than those who don’t play sports” (“athletics”). Women who participate in sports will make better social decisions than other women who do not play sports. Title IX also improves women athletes’ health. Because of constant workouts and games, athletes have better health overall.
So Sofia tried to beat the bully without using violence or being mean back, she tried to use her mental and athletic ability to beat the bully. At the end of the story Amy is more true to herself whereas Sofia tries to beat the bully and stand up for who she is. In the stories “Fish Cheeks” and “Taco Head” both narrators learn similar lessons about being themselves. They should be proud of who they are because as Dr. Seuss says, “Why fit in when you were born to stand out?”
This document written by Elizabeth Cady Stanton, demanded social status equality as well as legal rights, and the right to vote. The successes of the Women’s Suffrage Movement was that the 19th amendment granted women the right to vote. During this movement job opportunities were open to more women which also caused this movement to make working conditions better to work in and gave women a better paying wage. Women were also able to take birth control which worked on issues such as childbirth during the period.
Females who participate in sports grow more professional work ethic, good school manners, developed thinking skills, higher self-esteem, and better college aspirations and ambitions. According to Brad Wolverton (2006), college graduation rates for female athletes are notably
Mixed gender sports are covered more than women’s. Since women are seen as the weaker sex they are not given the recognition they rightfully deserve. Many may think that women are of the weaker sex since this has been instilled in people’s minds for decades. However, both must receive equal opportunities in all aspects of life. The mere fact that there are numerous sources for this,shows that it is an issue that needs a new solution which can be started through simple
Professional athletes are getting paid more than individuals that help our society in a good and helpful way. In fact, they are getting way overpaid. “Unless you’re finding a cure for cancer or creating world peace, I don't know if anybody deserves to get that much money,” said Drew Brees, quarterback for NFL team New Orleans Saints, after signing the 5 year 100$ million dollar contract. I believe that this is true, that professional athletes are indeed getting overpaid. There are many individuals that affect our society in a positive strong way and are receiving less money than professional athletes do.
2017 has been a year supporting female empowerment, expression, and confidence with your body. So why should girls feel ashamed of their bodies in the environment where they should feel the safest? The dress code should be less restrictive because, it’s unfairly targeted at females, it makes women feel less confident, and it restricts most athletic clothing made for girls. Schools continually enforce rules that they’ve had since they were founded. Times change, and rules need to too.
It is an imperative matter that we take a look at the impact of Title IX on sports as well as why it should be viewed from a multidimensional perspective. Women’s opportunities for competitive physical activity were restricted in America up until Federal Legislation, commonly referred to as Title IX, which later became law. It required American society to recognize a woman’s right to participate in sports on a plane equivalent to that of men. Prior to 1870, activities for women were recreational rather than sport-specific in nature. They were informal, noncompetitive, rule-less; they emphasized physical activity rather than competition.
Before Title IX was passed, the classes that were offered in high school for girls to take were ones like cooking and sewing, while boys could take woodworking and metalworking classes. Schools were allowed to deny these girls the training in these fields that were considered inappropriate. Therefore, women trained primarily for low-wage jobs, such as health aides, cosmetologists and housewives. The majority of women working in education taught in elementary and secondary schools.
