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
Today’s society, men and women both, need to be more thankful for what have and what they work for. Men and women take too many things for granted and one day they will wish they did not. Every opportunity that men and women receive, need to think about the true value of what they have. Men and women should never lose appreciation for what they have because they never know when it could be taken away from them. Other people in our society may not get the same opportunities, so men and women need to take that to heart.
Women’s suffrage Have you ever thought about women 's rights and equality? It’s not as pretty or memorable as you think it is. But just like Shirley Chisholm said “at present, our country need’s womens idealism and determination, perhaps more in politics than anywhere else.” Which is true but back then it certainly wasn’t. Let me take you way back to when women and men were not equal, and when men had more power over women. To begin with, one of the things men could do but not women was vote.
“Women who seek to be equal with men lack ambition.” a quote said by Timothy leary a former male american psychologist and writer. In the early 1900’s women did not have the simple right of voting, during those times men were given all the power even if they were abusive towards women it was acceptable. Now a days women have overcome many of these obstacles, not only with the right to vote but by having one of the biggest names in history are women. Everyone thinks that there is nothing but equal rights and everyone if given what they deserve. However there are a lot of people who are opposed to the idea of gender equality and think that it is ridiculous but it is one of the most important things to have for two main reasons.
If women did not stand up for themselves then, women today would not be able to experience all of the freedom they have. Women today are able to receive the education they want and build their own career. However, they do not have the full equality due to men getting paid higher than women along with women getting paid higher than others based on their racial background. Will women ever get paid the same as men do? Or will women continue to be paid less than men?
Instead of talking about how women could do anything, the author starts to talk about negative things about them. It makes sense that people now a days should take gender equality serious, but the author fails to mention on how we could do that, the author doesn't show any methods on how we could accomplish
Women have overcome many stereotypes and continue to do so, but there will always be more. These stereotypes have not stopped women from accomplishing want they want to do, it has given them a reason to reach their goal, so they can prove to people that they are more than what men believe they are. Women facing criticism push them to strive for greater success and continue to break more stereotypes. Above all people’s thoughts on what a woman should do has to change. Otherwise, stereotypes will continue to control people’s mindset if nothing is
Women have been fighting for gender equality for many years. Although humanity is composed by two different genders, females have been more discriminated than males in job positions or education. Race, economic status or ethnicity also made a difference in a women to success. Sheryl Sandberg, in her essay "Lean In: What Could You Do If You Weren't Afraid? ", seriously discusses the possible facts that may be impeding the equal success between genders.
It was like they were pets and they had to wait for their owner to take them out for a walk or something. Personally, I as a woman have the same problem however not to that extent, the way people perceive women as inferior now a days has been altered a little, “you can’t sit like that”, “you cant eat like that”, you can’t joke like that” and the list goes on and on… So the issue that woman are inferior has existed for far too long now. Many people have tried to make a change and alter the way men treat and perceive woman, but it is still the same and it wont change until women really do
Men tend to not see women as powerful or as smart as we actually are. On the other hand, Men just have to put on a nice suit and have a good haircut to look like the CEO of a big company. Society has taught us that women should be used as objects and that is all we are, and that is definitely not true. Women are forced to live their lives revolving around men. Some women think we have to dress and act just to impress men.
