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.
The women of Sparta were known for their boldness because they could bear children, were capable of being strong, and were loyal to the work they did, that is also why Spartan women got respect from their husbands and other males living in Sparta, they were not treated/counted as slaves like the Athenian women. The women of Sparta would treat Helots (slaves) badly, because that was their personality in ancient Sparta. Nowadays, most women would not have done what they did, mainly because the Athenian culture influenced more than the Spartan culture
Women in ancient Rome, much like other places during this time, were not treated equal to men and had to work even harder than men to get noticed. However, a few Roman women did go down in history as great influencers. A women was saw as the housekeeper and the caretaker of the children. Although women were not considered important to the Roman empire, they were crucial for Roman life and made an impact on the ancient world. During this time, men were considered superior to women.
3. Domestic life and society Ancient Egyptian women and Roman women’s most important social role was that of managing a household, however, ancient Egyptian women were accorded a relatively high social status (Watterson 1991:23) and were not confined to the house (Robins 1993:113). They could take part in business activities (Watterson 1991:25), in contrast to Roman women, who had a very limited role in public life, and could not attend, speak in, or vote at political assemblies and could not hold any position of political responsibility or conduct their own business (Clarke 1981:206-207). Once Roman women were married they took on the social status of their husband and had a duty to look after the home, bear and nurture children (Gardner 1991:67). Women who could afford slaves had a life of more leisure, but the less fortunate women in both regions had to prepare their own food, clean their houses, and wash their clothes (Watterson
Despite the lacking records, it is certain how ancient Greeks viewed their women and their relationships with their male counterparts. Sadly, most of how women lived away from their husbands’ world and how they interacted with other female companionship remains a mystery. Even the Olympic Games were under a males only policy, with the exception of a small event women held in honor of Hera in Olympia . Contrary to most ancient cities and popular belief, some women in ancient Greece were actually able to hold more than just the title of housewife. Although they were still secondary to men, in some Greek city-states, such as Sparta, women held much more freedom and a larger role in society .
She became co-pharaoh with her late husband’s son Thutmose iii. Thutmose did not enjoy the fact that she was ruling alongside him. He thought that she was awful, and thought that he was the only one that deserved to be king. Though they were co-rulers, everyone looked to Hatshepsut when a problem came up because she was much more suited to be pharaoh. Hatshepsut’s rule was a tranquil time.
Moreover, the fact that she hates little children also puts her in an unfavorable light when it comes to how society views women and how they're always expected to pursue their roles as good wives and are thus expected to grow a love for children from a very young age. However, Hamida refuses to be put in that context and thinks of herself as better than getting pregnant and having to take care of kids. She wishes that Sheikh Darwish would be her husband but only because he was wealthy. She asks herself whether "it would be too mean" for Darwish to give her ten thousand pounds. Money is clearly the main thought in Hamida's mind, which is not uncommon amongst the younger generations.
In the book it is stated that women are scarce and that is why they were considered such valuable human beings, but still you could find some sort of machismo, for in some parts Wyoh was only recognized for her tantalizing looks but always having her intelligence underrated. Also, almost at the end Lenore volunteered to watch for ships and Greg said “won’t need fems”, at some point another character accepted a woman in his crew only because she knew how to “remain silent when needed”. This is pretty much what we see in our society. Of course we have advanced and women have far more rights than they did fifty or one hundred years ago, yet we are light years away from overcoming the gender gap. It is a fact that the macho culture is still running in the Mexican streets and now I think that it is more dangerous than ever for it almost always goes unnoticed and disguised in the shape of micromachismos and it is killing more women than ever before.
There were supposed to be modest, virtuous, sweet and should also be weak and be dominated by strong men. They were always looked down upon by society; there were moderated by their physical appearances, ability to bear children and to please their husband. Has society’s expectation for men become so lower that there are being judgmental towards women? These society’s boundless expectations towards women leads to the end of their individuality. Nora’s awakening; her rebirth has led to her own independence as when she stands for herself and at the end of act 3 (pg. )
These behaviours are passed on from generation to generation and shape the gender norms in the society which are often more disadvantageous towards females. In the past, women were not entitled to the rights and privileges men had and it was commonly believed that a woman's place was at home dealing with domestic affairs. Day by day, we see gender gaps decreasing and more people pushing for a gender balanced community. Today, even as statistics show that women are deemed to be weak, inferior and in most parts of the world less worth than men, women have all the legal rights men have and maybe even more. Growing up, I have never felt oppressed or denied anything just because I was female.
