Women face getting treated differently, lower paying positions, the opinions of men, and the idea that because they are women they are not capable of the same kind of work men are capable of. The more people that support the different movements for women’s rights the better chance of this issue becoming more well known. Although some may know the struggle women go through to be compared as equally to men, there is still room for more to learn about this issue. Just because women were brought on earth to make more lives does not mean they are weaker and should have to go through this everyday of their
Women faced many large challenges when they left the home. One of the greatest was the need for childcare. Many women did not have access to daycares, which made it difficult to work as they could not leave their children, especially of their children are young. The government tried to make childcare easily available, but their solutions only helped a small majority of the struggling women. Women were highly criticized for their choice to join the workforce.
In the most complicated of cases, where specific conditions mean that the mother cannot follow the same work routine or fulfill all of her duties within the workplace, compromise can be achieved , such as the now common working from home scenario, that would allow the mother to overcome most difficulties. (Poduval, et.Al., 2009). As for those who claim that a working mother fails at being a mother, statistical evidence would prove otherwise, as an increasing number of mothers are electing to leave the household and work, without any significant damage to the relationship that they share with their husbands and children. Women can be responsible mothers, wives and professionals, as proven by the increased household satisfaction levels witnessed within households with working
In the dystopian genre, the role women play in these stories vary greatly from strong heroines to submissive housewives. In the novel titled The Chrysalids by John Wyndham, the women are portrayed far more like the latter throughout the story. This is a constantly repeated theme displaying to the reader that in this society, the women are expected to always be supportive and in constant servitude of their husband; the women who stray away from these preset quotas of how they must act are ridiculed; and a woman’s main purpose that defines her worth is her ability to produce normal, healthy children.. In Waknuk,the women are expected to act as one dimensional stereotypes. The women of Waknuk are expected to always stay supportive and
Throughout decades the roles of women in society constantly evolves. However, society continues to limit the natural progression of women, who want more for themselves. In “Why Women Smile” by Amy Cunningham and in “The Feminine Mystique” by Betty Friedan, both discuss how the majority of time, women are always expected to act on the role given to them by society. Due to these notions that are set by society, the social roles of women have not progressed to their full potential. In the article, “Why Women Smile” Cunningham argues the significance behind a fake smile put on by women around the world, in order to mask their true feelings.
In fact still now the position of women has not changed. Many people stills think women should be at home raising their children and doing domestic work .Women who wants to have careered are difficult to balance with their domestic with career. Now a day’s career is more demanding and time consuming. However there are a large number of women who have broken the glass ceiling and have proved that atmosphere in workplace has changed, employees are getting more support and better working environment has been created. Even though the law has been power, the glass ceiling is cracking up its going to take many more years to see any kind of extremely noticeable changes and improvement in women’s
Jobs customarily and historically held mainly by women were often denied to men based on social stigmas. Educated female is in a better position to know how to keep balance between her job and family as compared to uneducated female because of well awareness and
Some believe that they do not deserve equal pay because eventually, most women have children and will have to take time off. The employers sometimes think that women do not work hard enough.In fact, 58% of women with children under the age of one work either full or part-time jobs. Some employers also believe that women are not as smart or that they are the second source of income for a household. There are many misconceptions about women and their ability in the workplace. Many of these thoughts stem from long-lived stereotypes and how women were treated in the past.
She expresses her points of view by showing the reason why more and more people deny to get married today, and one of them because of women’s liberation movement – “As more women earned college degrees, entered the workforce and delayed motherhood, marriage became less necessary for their economic survival.” The more developed the world is, the more independent women are. Unlike hundreds years ago, women today have choices and chances in the workplace just like men do; therefore, there is no reason for them to give up their dreams, passions and talents to become a stay – at – home moms like their grandmothers did. Because of this reason, matrimony would be a huge impediment to
Stereotypes are only a part of the problem as unless an organization wholeheartedly supports a woman’s life journey (ex. maternity and child care) such that it does not hamper her future career progression (or men start to deliver babies themselves), women will always continue to be disadvantaged in the workplace, and the glass ceiling, will always remain in some form or the other. Given the size of the women in the labour force and the scarcity of leadership talent, utilization of their talents and skills is necessary not just from the micro-perspective of the company but from a country’s growth perspective as well. It is important to note that women who are not active in the workforce are still making investment decisions on behalf of the family and therefore ignoring the woman as a customer is a colossal mistake. More and more companies are recognizing this and have developed
I think the stereotype that women are the ones who work at home and care for the kids should be gone, because frankly, not all women want to do that. Some want to start successful businesses, and to do so, they are going to need a proper education. (80

It’s not like I’m making these facts up or that this research is biased; the hard truth is that gender equality has not been achieved in our society” (Sinn 7). People claim that discrimination in our country no longer exist between race and gender.
Nowadays, a women is not a plain housewife anymore rather be a working mom now. Although most spouse will be happy with the additional income, many have found it hard to accept or difficult to adjust with their wife’s new roles as a working mom and wife. Being a woman having an income of her own, a busy schedule and having a new outside friendship, it may cause a husband to feel neglected and insecure. A recent studies showing that more divorce among American family now than
There’s only life.” This quote perfectly sums up this article in saying that balancing work, and family can be one of the biggest deterrents for women to go into executive roles, and that since this is known large companies should be helping their mothers, not abandoning them. The article also sheds light on the fact that mothers, and most women do not have the choice to work; although they are becoming more educated women are not being rewarded in the same way. Because working is necessary for most women, if society was organized to be equal in the workforce people would realize that mothers just want the best for their children,
