Sexism, throughout the past century, is a growing controversial argument between people. Unfortunately, it is still a debatable event among groups of people no matter what their tendencies are. Most gender discriminations relate sexism to women highlighting on the treatment of women throughout history up to our recent days. On the other hand, not only there are few people who see it from the opposing perspective where men are exposed to sexism, but also few people believe that men are experiencing sexism either directly or indirectly. “When Men Experience Sexism,” by Noah Berlatsky (2013), The Atlantic, the opposing perspective was definitely stated.
Many of these thoughts stem from long-lived stereotypes and how women were treated in the past. Education has become much better, though and men and women both have access to great education. Therefore the reasoning to treat one gender differently from another should lessen. In the past employers could argue that women do not have the knowledge or capability of working for the same amount, but now they
From the work side, big wage gap between men and women still exist and there are still many family or culture believe woman’s job is only taking care of her family not a company. In Addition, women are still treated like second class in society such as intimate violence, rapes, and underrepresented in government. All this facts, proving us that gender inequality hit women. This is something endless, because women and men already have different stereotypes in society and there are hereditary. Therefore, it is hard to make gender equality, but we can try to treat women well everyday in every aspects.
It is being proven by professionals that sexism towards women in the workplace is being shown through various forms of discrimination in policies, its effects on women’s health and jobs, and the leading solutions that seem to be arising from it. Women in today’s workforce have been stigmatized in an unfair and unjust way that has been causing discrimination towards them over the years. The stigma towards women consists of very general stereotypes that undermine their capabilities and strength. Margaret Mead
These stereotypes have been defining what men and women should do and how they should behave. They were also determining the characteristics that each gender is considered to have, in the society’s eyes. The major problem why these stereotypes and hierarchies are still holding on, is the fact that people, men and women, do not have their actual beliefs and expectations and they just accept the way that the society formed and teaches them to believe about genders and this creates an even more intense discrimination. If people were forming their own beliefs and judgements about genders and accept females and males, both as equal, there would be less discrimination (The Guardian, 2013). Gender inequality at the workplace can be easily noticed through examples of events that happen when it comes to employability or even at work time.
However, with increasing participation in the work force, equal opportunities, globalization and forcing needs, sexism is seen as both still existent in today’s society, but also to a great extent less than it was in the past. Women’s roles in modern entertainment has changed, they are no longer side products of a man’s success, merely
We cannot distinguish male and females while talking about it as both can be its victim but in almost everywhere women are exploited more than men. The roles that women play in the society and the images we have of them have not formed from biology and social situations but are deeply rooted in the myths, legends
While there is an increase in interest in gender and women studies, many controversies, deficits and gaps are existed in explaining the relationship between perceived gender factors, misogyny in the context of this paper, and women’s political participation through the lenses of comparative political frameworks. It becomes more vivid when discussing and analyzing political effects of gender on women running for offices and especially for the office of commander in chief. The following is a review of academic research, journals, books relating to women in politics and gender studies. This part begins with a review of past studies in the field of gender and misogyny, as well as their relation to political institution including gender stereotypes,
Gender inequality, the unequal treatment of an individual solely based on gender, remains to persist as a major obstacle in human and societal development. Although gender issues have recently become of great concern, stereotypes have penetrated into the sphere of politics. These labels influence people’s beliefs on gender roles, which drives men to be favored over women in society. Potential conflicts arise as a result of the prejudiced bias that clouds society’s judgment. When women are given the opportunity to be involved in political reality, society becomes more insightful, strengthened, and justified.
