), attitudes not to hold (want to be a stay-at-home dad, it is okay for my wife to earn more money than me, etc.) and ways not present themselves (don’t wear a dress, don’t have long hair, etc.) There are many debates about the nature and support of gender roles.

Feminism is seen as man-hating and feminists’ actions are seen as too strong, too aggressive, isolating, anti-men, and, unattractive. Emma needs men to have a more active role in women’s rights. Gender equality can only be achieved if men and boys take full responsibility, working side by side with women and girls, to readdress the dynamics that delay progress. “Men—I would like to take this opportunity to extend your formal invitation.

Why does being a woman make living life a constant struggle rather than living life as a man, where men everywhere seem to live a more satisfying life than us women do.

With a change in public opinion, the expectation is that women would now be more willing to enter into the political fray. In the 2009 Latinobarométro (cited in Htun and Piscopo, 2014) people were asked whether they felt men were better political leaders than women. The majority of respondents in Latin America either disagreed or strongly disagreed with this sentiment, however in Ecuador this was not the case. If the theory that female participation increases with changing public opinion on women in politics, we would expect that the Latin American countries with favourable societal views would have a higher rate of female political participation than countries where public opinion wasn’t as favourable such as Ecuador. However, when we examine the data, the Ecuadorian executive is approximately 25% women, while a number of the other Latin American countries (El Salvador, Uruguay, and the Dominican Republic) fall below 15%.
