Women athletes and women workers do not get the recognition they deserve. Men especially, look down upon women when it comes to their appearances, their knowledge and a women's physical and mental strength. In certain cases, a woman loses out on a job in the sports industry because she is exactly a woman. A male trainer can refuse to train women because of the parts her body has. Men and women have grown up in a world with the mindset that women know less than men when it comes to sports.
Women as a source of strife was significant to the Greeks and still influences American Culture today in a negative way to show that women are portrayed of having less value than men, women are being paid less and are not being treated as well as men in the workplace.

In the essay ”Claiming an Education¨, Rich explains how women were treated by the male discourse for reconsidering them as sexual objects, rather than taking them seriously for their academics.

Rich points out in her essay,” I believe that in a women’s college you have the right to expect your faculty to take you seriously.¨ ( 610). The majority of the women in college universities isn’t taken very seriously by the faculty, especially the male college professors, who thought the women are supposed to be simple minded and uneducated individuals, which

The Women’s Movement excluded women of color as well as queer women of color because the Anglo Women’s Movement focused on at least three positions: some wanted access to whatever men had access to, others felt that men had all the power and were responsible for women oppression, and others felt that women oppression was one of many in society that had to be corrected (NietoGomez 54). The Anglo Women’s Movement felt that they needed equal opportunities as men, while the Chicana Feminist Movement focused on racism, sexism, and classism. The Chicana Feminist Movement recognized that men did not have all the power because the Chicano men had no power, they made up for that lack of power through “male privilege” (NietoGomez 55). Due to so much oppression and machismo the Chicana Feminist Movement came to existence. The fact that there were two Women’s Movements hurt the strength of each movement because it was easier to divide and conquer; although it did hurt the movements strength, it
Not only that but, colleges may not consider fairness. For example, “Would women get paid as well?” (Ryan 1) Since this question occurs it wouldn't be fair because women may not be paid the same amount of money as the males do. In addition, it wouldn’t be beneficial for colleges on some occasions. For instance, “There would be no benefit in paying mediocre athletes because it would drive some of the stars away to the pros.”(Ryan 1) Therefore, it would also not be fair because the only ones getting paid may only be the best athletes. Hence, college athletes should not get paid because there would be many
Why are women in sports being paid less than men? In the past, women didn’t have the same rights as men because they were seen as less than or property.

It criticizes what a small role women play in society even if they have great abilities, what little power women have, and how unfair it is that men can do what they want while women cannot. I find this interesting because it seems so modern, women all over the world still struggle with the problems that the women in Medea did. Euripides, and C.A.E Luschnig.
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.
Small lies that we subconsciously tell ourselves mean nothing in the grand scheme of things, but if we tell ourselves small fibs on a regular bases over small and miniscule problems, what’s to stop us from saying bigger lies when bigger issues arise? One of the biggest issues, gender discrimination, must be abolished since women struggle with the gender pay gap, and unfair treatment in sports, while men struggle with the gender discrimination in divorce cases, mostimes leaving their gender as the main reason the mother receives custody over the child or children. Women may be able to participate in the same profession as men, but the large gap in pay between genders fails to attribute to the positives of said situation. The members of the Institute for Women 's Policy Research have used statistics over the past hundred years to conclude that: “Hispanic women will have to wait until 2233 and Black women will wait until 2124 for equal pay” (Pay Equity). The IWPR states that, “According to our research, if change continues at the same slow pace as it has done for the past fifty years, it will take 44 years—or until 2059—for women to finally reach pay parity.” The same institute claims that the time span will stretch from a 41 - 215 year wait for equal pay.
