Some women do not have access to the opportunity of working. Some women are forced to be stay at home mom’s because their husbands or families think that women should just stay home and have children. These women do not have the “rank” in society to deserve higher paying jobs, or even equal pay. In society women are always “ranked” lower than the men
Whatever in the family, in education or in the working place, women always could not consider the same as men, and most of these thinking past down to the modern society. According to Reilly, Kevin, “If the wife of a seignior has been caught while lying with another man, they shall bind them and throw them into the water.” However, according to Peggy Mclntosh’s article, even if a man slept with many women, he will not be thinking of “slut.” These two sentences show that how the society treat male and female differently. Even the woman did the same thing as man they will have totally different result. It showed that women had a very low social position, they even can’t have right to say anything. But, men can do the same without any explanation or they even did not need to
These behaviours are passed on from generation to generation and shape the gender norms in the society which are often more disadvantageous towards females. In the past, women were not entitled to the rights and privileges men had and it was commonly believed that a woman's place was at home dealing with domestic affairs. Day by day, we see gender gaps decreasing and more people pushing for a gender balanced community. Today, even as statistics show that women are deemed to be weak, inferior and in most parts of the world less worth than men, women have all the legal rights men have and maybe even more. Growing up, I have never felt oppressed or denied anything just because I was female.
One hundred years ago, women were to stay at home and care for the children. Since women now have a role like only the men used to, they invest time in their jobs just as much as the mean do. In turn, children can feel neglected from lack of attention from their parents because of the energy they put towards their money and economic goals. The assets that people thought would make marriage more fulfilling has actually made it more fragile. The partners in these relationships want the best of both worlds.
Background Before the Kent State shooting, the United State was already in a stir because of the Vietnam War that started in 1954. The involvement of the war damaged America in many different ways, one of them being the economy. Over 168 billion dollars were used towards military supplies and trade overseas that caused budget conflicts. The second conflict was the drafting, the Vietnam War took many lives so men of the ages 18 and up were drafted to attend the war in 1969. This caused uprising conflicts between the government and the people.
Women are also stereotyped as stay at home mothers. There is an invisible restriction put on women by men that they can’t be a mother and have a full time job at the same time. Neil French, the WPP Group PLC executive stated women “Don’t make it to the top because they don’t deserve to” and that “women are rarities in the senior corporate positions because most are unwilling to make the personal sacrifices of time and energy required to be the boss” (Maich). The words spoken by this successful male go to show the inequality faced by women every day. Women have an even harder job balancing household obligations and a job.
The government is inefficient and corruption prevails. According to the residence, there is no government service at all but collect tax much as it can. 90% of children cannot go to school to study for economic reason and fewer of them finish the study (The Economist, 2015). Most of the children have to help their parent solve the economic problem and they can hardly have a good job after they grow up. One of the most symbolic examples is China, it was the poorest country in the world after the Second World War, but more than 600 million Chinese people got rid of poverty since the 1970s.
It is a common misconception that women never worked before the war and that large amounts of women suddenly streamed into the workforce picking up work that they have never done before. However, contrary to popular belief, that is not entirely true. It was definitely the case that middle to upper class American families could afford to let the woman stay at home as they were not required to work or to contribute to the household expenses. However, many women of a lower economic status and minority groups had to work. They were not able to enjoy the luxury that was staying home to look after their kids or husband.
For example, the beliefs that it is women job to stay home and take care of their children and also women are unable to be leaders considering men physically strong and women emotionally sensitive. These terms, gender discrimination and stereotypes, are widely known in human history and even though some says that the equality between the sexes has been achieved, there are still many people out there, mostly women who become victims under these discriminations. Not to mention that there is another term related to it which is male chauvinism. According to the Oxford Dictionary, male chauvinism means male prejudice against women; the belief that men are superior in terms of ability, intelligence, etc. Plus whether you realize it or not, many people out there are male chauvinists, as they always prefer male over the female to do most things.
Gender discrimination a common practice when both men and women are trying to show their sovereignty and show the desire of altering their duties without giving importance to each other. Men and women both can face gender discrimination but women are more vulnerable due to delicacy and fragile looks. Examples of Gender discrimination include discrimination in family law, discrimination at workplace, discrimination in education, social restrictions etc. gender discrimination in education is the most prevalent issue in many developing countries such as Nigeria, Iran , Bangladesh, India. In education, most women experience differential treatment from their families and the society.
