Rhetorical Analysis of “Women Who Wear Makeup Are Paid More” Over the past years, women have struggled and made strides for the fight to gain economic, social and political equality.

Women who work full-time make only seventy-seven cents for every dollar a man who works full-time makes. This difference is known as the, ‘gender wage-gap.’ Due to this gap, full-time women employees are presented with less money and job opportunities. The stereotype behind all of this is that, ‘women aren’t worth as much as men.’ This stereotype is entirely outdated and insulting. The stereotype that women aren’t worth as much as men, is false. Currently, more women attend college than men, are just as qualified to work the same jobs as men and can perform the same tasks any man can.
Though Japan is the third most developed economy in the world, the World Economic Forum ranked the country 105th out of 136 countries in its recent global gender-gap report, putting it behind countries such as Cameroon and Tajikistan. Women participation in the labor force is at around 62% compared to the 80% participation rate among men. There is also only a 63% employment rate among women compared to the 65% rate among men.

In addition to this, a study which carried out by the Workplace Gender Equality Agency found a 266 dollar a week overall difference between what men and women in full-time work earn.

Single mothers are 10% of workers affected by an incrementation but they make up only 5.7 of the overall work force.

In today’s world, America has tried to compensate for past inequalities so that both genders can have equal opportunities in life. However, it is still not perfect. Meghan Casserly, a member of the Forbes Entrepreneurs team, analyzed the 2012 American Community Survey by the U.S. Census Bureau to discover that, “this year a total of 16 states boast women earning 80 cents or more to every male dollar, twice the count of 2010”. This shows how women are close to earning equivalent salaries to their male counterparts, but the gap is not quite closed yet. It is excellent that people are now paying attention to gender inequality and trying to do something about it.
In the society that we live in, there is a strong belief that because acts have been passed that we have reached equality between men and women in all forms. Many in society continuously state that there is no need for feminism or any type of movement for women 's rights because they have not been taught the truth and are fed the lies that people around them have constructed. “Women just starting their careers are earning wages closer to their male counterparts today than in previous decades. But researchers say men can quickly surpass women in both pay and seniority, especially in the private sector” (Mcswane 3). There have been many improvements in women 's wages but men are more likely to get raises or have a larger salary because of their sex.
