As the minority population increases, the economy will not be able to sustain itself. This is because the gender pay gap is even worse for African and Hispanic women than it is for white women. Although it is true that some minorities are not from America, they make up a lot of the workforce, and their demographic power will grow. If African American mothers are making 64 cents on every white paternal dollar, it will be hard for them to provide for their children which are the future of America. When one weighs all of the evidence, one can conclude that women not only have a right to equal pay, but they deserve it.
There are some that denounce that there is a wage gap at all. The first reason why women are paid less than men is because women choose lower earning college majors. Women are significantly more likely to attend and graduate from college but many of them choose majors in the social sciences and the liberal arts. This results in women disproportionally getting jobs in lower paid professions like elementary school education and nursing. The disparity has been justified that women make less money than men are based on what seem to be logical reasons but According to a 2010 study done by the U.S. Census Bureau, the average of all working women earn 78% of what men makes and 64% for black women.
What makes people want a racist, sexist, homophobe with bad hair and companies that have gone bankrupt multiple times to run the country? I know I don 't. The list of things wrong with Trump 's outlook is too long to mention all of but here 's what I think are the most pressing. Sexism. To say that Trump falls under this category is a major understatement.
Shakespeare’s play “Taming of the Shrew” has quite a controversial plot, theme, and dialogue. Many accuse Shakespeare of being sexist, and having a hatred towards women. People tend to compare this old play to modern times, and compare Petruchio 's actions to what is socially acceptable in our generation. We can’t help but compare. Growing up in a culture where women are treated generally well (for the most part,) makes this play seem disturbing, alarming, and difficult to comprehend.
Body image is “An intellectual or idealized image of what one 's body is or should be like that is sometimes misconceived in such mental disorders anorexia nervosa” (dictionary.com). All genders around the world struggle to impress themselves and others with body image. In a world that promotes unrealistic body images, it is very difficult not to compare yourself with these unrealistic standards. According to Glamour magazines in the United States, 40% of women are unhappy with their body image (Dreisbach, 2009). Female models have been getting thinner and thinner over the past 100 years.
Sex discrimination is one of the “glass ceiling” for women that make holds them from career advancement. “Back in the 1960’s and the 1970’s, when women first entered the job market by the millions, females in male-dominated professions, like finance, kept quite about sexual harassment because they were afraid losing their job” (Driscoll & Goldberg, 1993, pp. 174-175). V: Conclusion: A. short-review: 1. Mostly gender roles have been assigned by the culture sensitive which is appreciate from the society and social norm which depends on the context that lead to have the different roles in society based by they gender since we born with, but women sometimes dissatisfy for their less heavy works which could change to make more impact and value for themselves and their family.
When comparing Julia Roberts' cover to Blake Shelton's it becomes apparent how there is a double-standard when it comes to how the media portrays men and women. Other ads and magazines, as well as other forms of media, have shown throughout the history to repeat the same unrealistic beauty standard, focusing on perfection rather than realistic women and their true selves. Further, it demonstrates how women are not allowed to be sexy once they reach a certain age, while men become sexier with age and often are praised for signs of aging, such as grey hair. Magazines such as these can lead to self-esteem issues in women, particularly young girls who look at forms of media to get a sense of societal expectations. In order to fix this issue, magazines need to be cognizant of how their images and portrayals of women and men can impact people's images of themselves and others.
Misogyny in The Female We all enjoy the freedoms we have as American citizens and part of it is expression of oneself. Today we are so busy with self image and politics one may forget how fortunate and privileged one might be. In the Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood and Scarlett Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne the society is misogynistic and women are oppressed. The sexism and misogyny within the society has pressured women to internalize the and truly believe in an unequal society. When analyzing the characters of the Handmaid's Tale and the Scarlet Letter through the feminist lense, sexism has become so internalized that women work to maintain the system through prejudice and belittling one another for not fulfilling orthodox gender roles.
Media messages tend to conceptualize beauty in a detrimental and distorted manner. Young women are usually more affected by these potentially harmful messages for they are exposed to these at very young age, therefore, impacts of those messages persist all through their lives. In reality, nobody knows for sure what real beauty really is, enabling advertisers to form the unrealistic picture
She tried to do this by writing in a satirical tone in hopes that readers would see that these beauty standards are wrong and need to be changed. Another example of how degrading the beauty standards were can be seen in this quote, “‘she is almost pretty to-day’ were words which caught her ears now and then; and how welcome were the sounds! (Austen 3). By hearing this type of talk every day it can be seen as very degrading and can make women feel very self-consciousness about the way they
In the reading for this week, Friedlander discusses how the rise of female musicians in the early 1960s reflected the sexism inherent in society at the time through the labelling of talented performers simply as “girl groups” (pg. 72). This term infantilized artists like The Ronettes, The Shirelles and The Crystals, and by extension, implied that rock music was still a male domain. This is supported by the fact that the production teams behind hit records such as ‘Be My Baby’ were predominantly male. According to Friedlander, if a “girl group” achieved a million-seller record in the early 1960s, they would collectively only receive around $30,000-$40,000 to split between members thanks to a 3-4% royalty rate (pg.
Why would a woman as capable as a man to run a company will earn less than they do and this is just in corporate America. We even see this with actors and actresses where the female counterparts to the men earn much more less than they do of course we see improvements but there is still so much more to go. Of course this is one of the main focuses in America’s society, but worldwide there are many other factors to be focused on. Let us address women’s equality around the world where women are not allowed to vote, get an education or state their wishes or demand rights. Because women are viewed as less than men, many cultures do very little to protect their women against sexual crimes and or get justice for them.
