Women were believed to be the civilizing force, taking care of the children and home, and that society could not survive without them (Moran). Due to this sexist ideology many women didn’t get jobs due to the hostility they would face from the rest of society. This causes a problem during the depression when may families could use all the money they could get. The Women’s Bureau asserted that wives who held outside jobs were destroying the
According to Ware: “Women who sought relief or paid employment risked public scorn or worse for supposedly taking jobs and money away from more deserving men.” Ware goes on to show why this idea was flawed. To begin with, many women were the sole source of financial support for themselves or their families. Furthermore, the jobs that women mainly got were in what we now consider traditionally women work, such as nurses, or sectaries. This influx of women in the workplace managed to both upset and reinforce the status quo. While women flooded the workforce and in many cases became the main breadwinner of the family, the jobs that they had were in traditionally female areas, and thereby helped reinforce what was viewed as feminine jobs and what was viewed as masculine jobs.
Because of some statistics about women 's work, Hekker views her work as unique work which needs special care. However, the author mentions that people view her as an outsider, shamed, and out-of-date person because of her occupation. Hekker adds that other newer statistics put her hope down as the number of housewife mother is decreasing. Thus, the author clarifies that she must be treated as an important and unique creature because she is going to be one of the few housewives. Hekker concludes by mentioning that being a housewife is a heroic job if and only if the works that a housewife does is for children, husband, and house of someone else.
The documentary inspects the women 's battle to secure their status in their family through dealing with a patriarchal mentality, the women also attempt to exert their power, and through it all, we become familiar to Dadi, the manager of the family. Having a daughter brings sadness through some families as they know the struggle their daughters ought to face. Compared to males, their life is much harder as the experience of being a female is more a burden than anything else. There is no day off being a woman in a household, either being a sister, daughter, daughter in law or mother in law there is always a task assigned to you. In Dadi’s family, Dadi supports this claim as she describes being a woman as being an inferior caste.
However, claiming your education doesn’t only apply to one sex or the other. It applies to both sex, but majority of the time it has proved to be different for women. We are raised to believe that the most important job that we must withhold is being a mother and raising a family. While men are expected to be the head of the household and obtain jobs within different industries of their choosing. Women seem to be severely underestimated in the qualities they possess.
Due to this type of employment being viewed as a women 's job, the assumptions that domestic labor is a part of women 's nature leads to the belief that they should be paid low wages due to the job not being demanding. As a direct result this type of employment encourages oppression and transforms domestic labor into “servitude.” Therefore, women are constantly bombarded with extra duties that they are obligated to put up
Secondly, discrimination against women was also a huge problem in the 1930s. Women were considered the weaker sex and were left to do things like housework and taking care of children instead of working out in the fields. In the novella, Of Mice and Men, Curley’s wife is told she should just stay in the house where she belongs. Women should have as equal opportunities as men to get a job and be given the same pay. Women were forced to take jobs that hadn’t been taken by men such as schoolteachers.
Oregon-Doc. 7). The only job that women needed was motherhood because they were labeled as the idol to their children.According to this women had little independence and were diversified form men.Proper to the stereotype of women, in 1908 the Supreme Court accepted the political constitution of law to protecting women labor and the discrimination of both gender.Women were bias to the stereotype of gender roles and their rights and independence.They were given responsibilities of being mothers and weren’t offered new opportunities.The role that they were given consisted of cooking,cleaning and taking care of their family.In the late 1800s women began to work outside of their homes and started working in factories,farms and etc.Women then began to work male profession jobs The sentiment of this was that men thought that they were better than women and the Supreme Court affirmed that they would limit the working hours for women to protect their health because of public interest for the future of the generation to
Intersectionality is when there is other problematic society that affects a certain group of people within society is interconnected. The minority may all belong to the same group but yet there are many categories within that group that also deal with more than one form of oppression. In the article, the author makes valid points of the daily struggles of being a woman in society but also shines light on the issue that she also faces other forms of oppression because of her skin color. To the average white woman, the only form of institutionalized oppression they experience is solely gender based and therefore they tend to dismiss the idea that other races and religious fight for equality is much more intense. Intersectionality also contends
Since the beginning of time women have had different roles than men. Women have been the ones to take care of the family in the home and men have been the ones to take care of the financial needs. In the 20’s women began to realize that they were worth more than a housewife and began to change their roles. Women had to fight for their rights to change roles, leading up to events that show their determination for suffrage, and their right to work and be whomever they wanted to be. Women were not given their roles and a question asked is, “Why did they have to fight for them?” Craft believes the answer to this question is “They wanted to be more independent.
The Declaration of Sentiments, a document written by activists Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucrietia Mott, discusses injustices towards woman and the rights that have been withheld from them, such as voting and denied admittance into colleges. Stanton and Mott want readers, primarily men, to understand, to take action, and to fight against the opression that has been put on women of all ages, race and religion in the United States. Without the help of Stanton and Mott, womens rights may have been an overlooked issue yesterday and today, therefore, their message is incontestably crucial. To Stanton and Mott, women were created equal to men, and to further their declaration of this equality, they state that the rights that have been unfairly
Social media plays a massive role in what it means to be a female, but especially what it means to be a so-called good mother. With women already under scrutiny from society whether it being the way she dresses, to the way she speaks, the ideology of the good mother is often portrayed as the ‘supermom’ who can “do it all” by herself, but what society doesn’t see is the behind the scenes of the day to day stress it can cause specifically if she is doing it on her own. If the workplace became a place to uplift women, but especially geared toward helping mothers reach the top of the ladder while being able to balance family life, it would help change others perspective on the ideology of the good mother. Julie Larson-Green quotes “There’s no such thing as work-life balance. There’s only life.” This quote perfectly sums up this article in saying that balancing work, and family can be one of the biggest deterrents for women to go into executive roles, and that since this is known large companies should be helping their mothers, not abandoning them.
The age of the Alpha-female is upon us. Women wanting equality leads them to work. As a result, women now contributing in a household in more ways than the average housewife could. The impact not only occurred within the working female, but to people. Work has projected inner positivity that has led to the strong independent women.
All around the world, discrimination exists. Religion, race, sexuality, and gender are characteristics that cause unequal treatment of people. A developed country may overcome different social obstacles than a developing country, but certain issues are critical on an international scale. Women’s inequality in society is still a prevalent issue that should be addressed. John Poole’s editorial, “Where the Girls Are (And Aren’t),” discusses the discrimination of women in populous countries.
However, in reality not every marriage is a functional one. Society plays a huge role on the repression that enforce in marriage. Individuals are more accepting of marriage now and understand that every person does not necessarily want to marry but unhappy and feel trapped. Perhaps the in the "The Story of an Hour" and "The Yellow Wallpaper" the husbands might of love their wives and the feeling might of being mutual, but since it all took place in a different time period where society harshly criticizes women for not being married or for leaving the marriage they were in. Both women in the stories directly have a problem with the institution of marriage and feel like society is the one in charge of trapping women into marriage.
