Gender equality: the pinnacle concept that American society is not-so desperately trying to achieve. Many Americans have convinced themselves that gender equality was remedied by the Nineteenth Amendment and the Second Feminist Movement, and have not considered the thousands of steps that are left on the journey. In recent years, a matter of public interest has been the gender wage gap, stating that women are earning significantly less money than men for doing an equivalent amount of work. Critics of the effort to “break the glass ceiling” claim that a pay gap does not exist, and that if it does, it is because women either do not work as hard, have to tend to their families, or hold lower paying jobs. However, the gender pay gap has been proven to exist in a variety of different forms,
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
Woman suffrage was a rough time for woman. They proved in many ways, to men and the government, that they were capable of having the responsibility to vote. Except, no one seemed to care and thought that they were not ready. Allowing women to vote is a right because otherwise it would be considered oppression, women are just as capable as men to vote, and they will help improve the government. First of all, if women were not granted the right to vote, it would be considered oppression.
The first-hand account Ehrenreich provides as a low-wage workers may not be enough to warrant the audience’s trust in her claims, so she sprinkles in actual studies/statistics to make her claims more convincing. She states “Preamble Center for Public Policy was estimating that the odds against a typical welfare recipient’s landing of a job at such a ‘living wage’ were about 97 to 1” (3). Ehrenreich’s main point is that it is very hard to get by with minimum wage, especially without any help from friends or family. Referencing a reputable source that follows her claims made through her experience makes the narration seem more trustworthy. In addition, Ehrenreich notes “rents…have to be less than 30 percent of one’s income to be considered ‘affordable’” and then cites “Housing analyst Peter Dreier” who reports that the majority of poor renters spend “50 percent of their income on shelter” (170).
One of the question is Why does the government response to the economic crisis have a particular impact on women? And the other is Can the Equality Act 2010 protect women? The focus of the topic was to clarify the impact of austerity to a particular gender. Implementing austerity was to cut on public spending were majority of women works under public sector rather than private and they were paid less and due to the austerity it became worse. But it was not mention in article the negative effects for the society due to this inequality.
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
This discrimination against sex is called sexist and America itself has embodied the definition of sexism through the unrealistic idea of women on TV, the pay gap, and the fact that there are very few women involved with politics. There is no voice for women being heard in these aspects and there must be a voice for women. As being a feminist, I find that it is completely sad that America is still holding up those stereotypes and is not finding ways to develop better quality between men and women, along with establishing a greater body of support for men and women. The media needs to change its stereotypical and sexist views of women to develop equality between the two and to see women not as the sex symbol but as the one who is powerful. That is something that seems to be missing in media.
Minimum Wage Low-skilled workers are steadily pressing to raise the minimum wage, but this would be a disastrous idea. There are many people giving input on why the pay should be raised and saying they cannot live on such a low wage, but the minimum wage is not for someone 's career, it is for people with low skills to get eased into the workforce like teenagers. They do not realize how detrimental a hike in the minimum wage would be on them in the long haul. The people need to be informed on what they are asking for before they get an even worse outcome than before. The people who make minimum wage very clearly express their theory that higher pay will benefit them and show many valid points on why it should be increased.
Also human poverty includes a plethora of things and she doesn’t specify which ones need to be prioritized .She advocates for the use of HPI as a measure but the problem with it is that it has only two categories of countries which are developing and industrial. She advocates for a feminist approach to understand the gender implications of poverty ,taking in consideration the restrictions that women face which men don’t ,which would help formulate better policies
For example, Duvander and Andersson (2008) stated on their study that the usage of parental leave to represent gender equity is not an accurate depiction of gender equality. Such that, it can be interpreted as a positive influence in the right direction of gender equality by the father’s support in the division of household labour which is a close depiction of gender equity. Moreover, most studies are focused on either women or men solely; the comparison of men and women is often neglected and the absence of a macro-level standpoint does not allow them to understand the change at a societal level particular among various countries (Leerife, 2012). Likewise, the models used were trivialized for its lack of focus on the study of fertility within the confines of its social and cultural framework (Mcdonald, 2000). So, another approach suggested is to include different society-level measures of both women and men in different areas while the focus will solely be on Japan instead of several countries.
Why is the new Constitution is doing this, because the under the Articles of Confederation,states regulate their own trade and other states tax one another’s products and looks seems like this is a separate nation; and the free flow of goods from one state to another is necessary for America to progress. So this why the new Constitution should be ratified and so this problem could be fixed and change to make us our nation a better
