For instance, my mom raised me and my sister all by herself without anyone standing by her side. In addition, the government should do something to show women that they are able to do everything because sometimes those things that women can do, men are not capable of doing it, such as raising children alone. Furthermore, women’s rights are about being female than being equal with men. In Kurdistan, the laws says that women can do whatever men can. However, sometimes women do more work than men, but men do not let women to take high position jobs.
She even becomes the breadwinner for the family after her father passed away - she is confident with herself and able to act as the leader. Looking closely at Tiana, the reason why she can be independent is because the culture of her society shapes her to be like so. As Tiana coming from African American background, the women from this society play the most important role to maintain and keep the household together. Hence, the women should be able to be independent and strong in order to keep the family. Nevertheless, Tiana, Rapunzel and Merida represent the modern women who are able to make their own decisions.
Women 's rights have always been something to fight towards, and Mary Wollstonecraft helps us do that with her publication A Vindication of Rights of Woman. She heavily endorsed the education of women AND men. She wanted to change the traditional perspective on women as being a victim or needing help. Furthermore, she thought, without equality, it that much easier for men to control women. Education leads to civil and political rights, which further equal the rights men have in comparison to women.
They were not able to enjoy the luxury that was staying home to look after their kids or husband. Another type of women who worked would be those that would work for a few years before they got married and had children. Thus, working was no foreign subject for women by 1940’s. However, working women was not a particularly popular topic as it was seen as inglorious and undignified. This was especially so during the period of the Great Depression, where many women were frowned upon if they worked as they were seen as stealing the already limited work available from men who were assumed as more capable than women (“A Change in Gender Roles: Women’s Impact during WWII in the Workforce and Military (Fall 2012)”, 2012).
Married women and single women wanted to work together but people did not let them. Women in the 1930s were expected to do housework and could not find jobs easily outside of the home, but women organized into volunteers groups devoted to improving the living and working conditions of other women. Women were having a hard time getting a job. Women worked long hours for low wages in the 1930s. The depression caused wages to drop lower so more women can join and not meet the basic expenses (Working Women in the 1930s).
Working women face many obstacles throughout their journey: work harassment, gender discrimination and at times may not be allowed to work. This, however affects the economy for more than a quarter of our population is not able to work, therefore female participation should be encouraged more. Female participation in the work force of Pakistan is only 28% whereas in countries such as Vietnam it is 77%, however the percentage may not be as low as it seems. Many women work in such places which do not pay in cheques or online but pay mostly in cash, thus their participation does not get reported for their payment does not get noticed by the government’s account.In Jordanian culture women are frowned upon for working in their young age or any age
The problem with all of this is that most people believe that women are only good for domestic work. As i mentioned earlier, the fact them seen as domestic workers causes that they are not to be seen for their work potential or their university studies. As well as many of them are seen as sexual objects. In general women do not get paid less because they want to, the reality is that gender equality in the workplace still does not benefit women and probably never will, this cause women to accept a job knowing that it is more likely that they will not have the same salary as men. Women are more qualified, and their workday is up to ten hours more per week than that of a man.
Women have come up trying to champion for their rights in different countries. In most regions where Islamic religion is dominance, the women lack most privileges that are enjoyed by men. Women are not allowed to walk without veils especially when going to public places or attending public functions. Previously, the public world was dominated by men but veiling allowed women to be part of it. Veiling increased the safety of women in the twentieth century and they were allowed to undertake occupations that could only be done by men as highlighted by Badru & Sackey (2013).
Beyoncé proclaims to the world that she is a modern day feminist in her song “Flawless”, which, according to her is: “the person who believes in the social, political, and economic equality of the sexes” Her definition of a feminist is correct as women should be able to do whatever they want to do assuming that they want to do it, and that they can do it. Not all women want to do things such as join the workforce, compete athletically or go to war. Just because men have the right to do these things does not mean that it is a good right to have. Most believe that this is a misnomer of feminism, and is anti femininity because it encourages women to abandon their femininity and instead adopt masculinity by mimicking what men do. Females and males are supposed to behave in certain ways.
These obligations must ensure the right to live with full pride in the society, freedom from slavery, right to be recognized as a person of the society, freedom from every act of torture, domestic violence, ill treatment, humiliation, exploitation, freedom from discrimination in public life. In a male dominated society, dalit women see such oppressive atmosphere not only because of their caste but because of their gender too. Only through the security of these obligations, a woman can live a peaceful and reputed life in the family as well as in the society. If we analyze the occupational diversification among dalit women, it is also showing the weaker section of their own society. Only 21 per cent of Schedule Castes women were cultivators compared with 51 per cent for Schedule Tribes and 45 per cent for non-Schedule Castes/Schedule Tribes.
