But why have men failed to embrace this change? Following Rosin’s essay was a prompt written by Phillip Cohen titled, “Still a Man’s World”. In his essay, Cohen brings into question the ideas presented by Rosin.

However, while Finney creates anxiety among the readers through description, Connell creates tension through the characters speech, thought, and describing the actions of others. Although Connell uses more elements to create angst, Finney 's method of creating suspense draws the reader in more effectively. Jack Finney masterfully manipulates the reader’s mood, creating tension in his audience and capturing their attention. Finney effectively describes the main characters dire situation, expertly fashioning the mood of the story. Within the story, Tom Benecke, the main character, sits on the verge of a promotion, and everything relies on a piece of paper that flies out of the window.
After all it is the problem of today, the establishment of new relations, or the adjustment of the old ones, between men and women” The one essential feature of life, as it is lived, is the constant change in judgements and attitudes. The attitudes and judgements of men and women towards each other are ever changing and shifting, and it is this shift, this change or conflict in human attitudes that Lawrence presents in his novels. No doubt, his characters are drawn psychologically while his heroes are by and large his own projections, his heroines are drawn from real women whom he met and experienced in his life. As Alan Friedman put it, “Lawrence’s women are some of the most interesting women in all fiction” (P 390) Thanks to the dominant character of the feminine Element in his own nature, Lawrence possessed a greater insight in the mysterious depths
She uses her opinions in her narration and reveals her thoughts about society through the use of an ironic tone. The author also uses her characters to add irony to the story. Elizabeth and her father are the main tools that Austin uses to include irony in the novel as they are the most sarcastic characters of the story.

According to Collins & Singh, (2006) the organisational culture barriers are due to unfairness that are held by men which prevent women from being appointed into executive positions. It was further elaborated by Straub (2007, p. 292) who stated that “different gender roles are imposed on males and females from early childhood”. According to Straub (2000), state that the traditional role of women is to raise children whilst the role of the men is to work and provide for the family. According to Oakley (2000), women perceive gender bias to be one of the biggest challenges they have faced in their professional careers. Women have been faced with assumptions that they were hired or promoted because of their gender and not because of their competencies
Language and Anthropology The interrelationship between language and gender is not only complex, but also diverse. Feminists have been anxious as the term gender entails treating males and females as if they had the same political power, rights, upbringing, access to education and many others. Questions and criticisms of language have emerged due to the concern that language is a powerful medium, which both reflects and constructs the world. Language presents stereotypes of both males and females, sometimes to the disadvantage of males, but more often to the disadvantage of the females. Language has been historically man-made with the male forms reflecting the male’s position in the society and the female forms perceived as deviant.
It has been contended that, psychologically, women only have an ability and competency in the career field involving people and their needs. Portrayed as a job focusing on tough and dirty works, engineering has an outlook as a masculine profession because the initial culture and the work are mainly dominated by the male peers . However, the stereotype has been strongly argued in the recent years of the engineering and technology world development. According to , “Despite growing demand for skilled workers, women remain under-represented in science, engineering and technology industries.” Giving chances for women under represented in men dominated field will enhance and discover more scientific knowledges . The presence of female engineers will generate the diversity in the field and can bring various ideas and perceptions, since the gender difference plays a significant role in the people’s way of thinking.
According Eurostat, in 2014 women 's gross hourly earnings were on average 16.1% below those of men in the European Union. Gender pay gap is becoming more important subject of various discussions. One of the major fighters in this gender based problem are feminists. They claim that an unequal payment is a consequence of man’s dominant position in the society. Scientists are less likely to agree with this concept and their opinion is more upheld by the variety of social and economic factors as well as personal life choices and each of them has a notable effect on different earnings among men and women.
From Rosliza and Majdah (cited from Sultana, 2014), although Malaysia already increased their educational level and social environment transform to become more globalization, but men or husband in family institution are still viewed as the main decision-maker in the family in some part of this country. Women still have unequal power to make a decision, they are not unable to discuss in family manner and because of that we can see Malaysia has the one of the highest number of divorce in family institution and one of the reason this problem happen of this inequality. Women been too limited on what they favor and men always want to look more superior and acting better on all purpose. This make gender equality in Malaysia keep worse day by
This sounds inexplicable suggesting a sort of “male social cohesion”. Feminist consciousness has certainly given an ardour and excitement to literary studies. A reasonably new perception of women in literature and the works by women writers have unveiled some of the prejudices at work in their traditional approaches to literature hitherto dominated by masculine perspective. A woman’s experiences of life as a member of a gender biased society formulate her psyche. Moreover, she is bound by certain other factors such as her individual circumstances, societies expectations related to age, creed, class, race, etc.
