Society is the reason why women have been treated differently and how women view themselves in the workplace.

As it states in Family Policies, “Society has appeared to reinforce women’s tendency to compromise on convenient working in female-typed jobs and to deter them from attaining high-paying positions” (Mandel and Moshe 952). Society has tried to tell women which jobs they should try to obtain but society has never tried to lead the
Companies would ignore the women’s compliments of them being sexually abused and receiving sexual harassment. Its disappointing because this companies where the biggest cleaning companies and still had problems resolving these types of problems. I think it’s unfair because if this same problem happened inside an office or in a higher position, the company would have taken an immediate response to this problem and probably terminated the abuser in that same time. I think these companies de-value women’s work, because they see it as a simple task that they don’t need a degree or certificate to do it. Most of these women are undocumented and most of them don’t know their rights, which companies take advantage of

All Phoebe did was express her feeling in a polite manner, and this man who made a sexual joke is making her feel like a bad person. She has the right to feel angry because this would not happen with a white woman. Most white woman are known for complaining to customer service and it is not a problem. However, if a black woman were to do it she would appear rude and difficult. Therefore, we need intersectionality in feminism because women are facing many challenges because they are not only women; they are also their ethnicity, sexual orientation, and career.

Ledbetter, Petitioner V. The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company, Inc., 2007).Regardless the plant’s manager’s personal beliefs, the manager did not have to share his opinion on female presences in the organization with Led Better while representing and being a part of the organization. In the case, this behavior suggested that it was implied that the organization believed that women’s involvement had an adverse effect on its operations. However, Goodyear hired female employees due to their qualifications and expected contribution to the organization. The contrasts in viewpoints are blatantly
In Don't Give Up The Fight, Ava held back, she didn’t give the bullies the fulfillment they needed to figure out she was hurt. If she fought back, the whole story would have changed. Ava wouldn’t of needed help from a friend and the story would have ended sooner without all of Ava’s suffering and defeat.

If she didn’t stand up like she did, she would have accepted defeat, making the women's rights movement even more vulnerable.

Let us not be oppressed by our womanhood!
