Therefore, they receive discrimination for being single mothers as well as, the simple fact that they are women. “Has had major implications for the high proportion of women working in the public sector, most of whom are employed at lower levels than men” (Leckie, 180).

Sexism is a prevalent issue that society struggles with due to the many negative stereotypes that are created like putting labels on how someone should live and act according to their gender. Sexism and stereotypes are not just a current issue but an issue that has been occuring forever. People are not just born sexist but when exposed to them it can affect them. “According to the article “Long-term Effects of Stereotyping” published in psychcentral.com, Rick Nauert argues how people can be affected by stereotypes even after being exposed to them.” (George,7). Some stereotypes include that women “ are not as strong as men” or that “women can’t be athletic”.
Everyone that has ever existed has faced some kind of subjugation. Whether it be over gender, sexuality, religion, financial status, ethnicity, or color everyone is stereotyped. Some have more negative stereotypes than others, some just have ones that are neatraul. To dive down deeper into the understanding of different stereotypes, I asked a close friend some questions and compared them to the ones I face as a young woman. The answers were incredibly different, but so weren’t the effects which I expected to be the same.
Hooks claims that Sandberg's finances and popularity have helped her in her success, most women don't have the same opportunities that Sandberg does. Her essay is not efficient enough, since she does not gives new solutions, she speaks about old ideas that many people have tried to change already. She also can't represent or speak for all women when she has been in a very good position, women from other races or countries can not success even when they have the ambition to achieve their goals. Sandberg spoke about equality, when she apparently wants to be better than men. In order to improve equality between gender, we should start with respect in the actual society.

There are many stigmas attached to receiving public assistance. People who depend on welfare to survive are often seen to use welfare because of “their laziness, drug use, lack of human capital, personal choice, or other personal shortcomings or irresponsible behavior.” The mothers in the study conducted by Seccombe, James, and Walters found that women receiving public assistance were all too aware of these stigma. These women understood that other people looked at them differently when they found out that they were on welfare. The surprising finding in this study, however, is that while individual women saw themselves as victims of a system, they stigmatized other women on public assistance under the same stereotypes that they were subjected to by others. These women saw “clear distinctions were drawn between ‘me’ and them’.” The disconnect between how a person sees themselves in the system in comparison to others may be a defense mechanism that is used in order to cope with being on welfare.

Women, to this day, face unequal job opportunities, dowry, and harassment etc.

The last way is through nonviolent resistance. Nonviolent resistance brings the best of acquiescence and of violence. It grabs the nonviolent aspect of acquiescence, but not the conforming.
