First of all the lack of women at high ranged jobs leaves the women who are situated in middle management to turn to male mentors. Cross-gender mentor relationships are more challenging than same-gender mentor relationships. This can be explained by the perceptions men, and women have to each other (Ragins & Cotton, 1991). Women are more reluctant to start a mentor relationship with a higher positioned male because choosing an opposite sex for mentoring can be perceived as a sexual advance and can cause a lot of gossip and harm the public image of both partners (Ragins & Cotton, 1991). It is known that women and men are more at ease building a professional relationship with the same sex as they experience the same prejudices and can relate with one
Because men thought less of women in this time period, the fact that Skeeter has such enthusiasm about starting her writing career causes everyone to make her feel very discouraged. According to Stockett, people believe that because she is a woman, Skeeter isn’t capable of upholding a job that is so prestigious as to be a writer. Because of this, Skeeter has to fight back to everyone to prove that she is smart enough and able to pursue a career in this field. Because most women are known for holding the role of a stay at home mother who dedicates their lives to their families, Skeeter’s motivation to reach for her dreams is very dampened considering everyone doubts her abilities. This is quite significant because even though people are making it very clear that they don’t believe she can achieve her dreams, Skeeter is putting forth all her might to prove them wrong.
He tried to distinguish the difference between speaking with voice and speaking through writing. Whatever comes into mind, write it down; using one’s voice lets a person write. The meaning of freewriting to Elbow is to be comfortable in what one is saying whether it makes sense or not. Both Elbow and Douglass successfully capture the attention of their individual audiences through their unique ways of
These barriers have caused female police officers to resign from their positions to avoid any issues and because gender discrimination and the other complaints aren’t taken seriously in Law enforcement.

When dealing with barriers its best that woman working in Law enforcement figure out how to deal
Women are always most likely to be discriminated upon. Throughout history we have had some catching up to do since women were recently able to enter the workplace versus a male who has always been portrayed as dominant and has always had the opportunity to obtain a career. Gender roles plays a huge part in this because of the time period of the play. Amanda discusses what roles women have according to her Southern upbringing. Today, that isn’t enforced the same way and girls aren’t held to the high expectations that Amanda had for Lura.
Most important, the assignment taught me how having all essential aspects of writing, such as purpose, audience, genre, tone, sentence variety, sentence structure, and word choice in my works can improve my writing as well as a convey a better image of the paper.

Women have come a long way throughout history from the right to vote to be able to work in the workplace. They have faced a lot of discrimination but have been able to fight through each situation, but yet there are disparities between men and women in the workplace from the pay gap to positions. But why are these disparities present? Katty Kay and Clarie Shipman, writers of the article The Confidence Gap, believe the answer is confidence. This article argues that the reason why women do not pursue higher positions is due to low confidence through a pathos appeal directed at the audience, an ethos appeal given by the credibility of the authors, and a logos appeal by a variety of statistics and studies.
While it is no longer uncommon for a woman to do a job that was before a mans only position, there are still standards that are based for the men. There are a large number of women who prove these standards wrong daily, and who show everyone that things are not just careers for one sex over the other. The gender structures for men and women seem to be ever changing in this modern day and age. Careers across the board that are generally thought of for one sex or the other are being broken into by the other sex. While it is more common to see a woman breaking into a career for men, there is some progress for men
Consequently, the author reported that women were more disadvantaged in pursuing their career goals than males as a result of managing their professional and domestic obligations, while pursuing advancement to top teams in F500s. However, scholars including Hewlett (2013) offered a different position on the gender barrier issue. Hewlett attributed the limitations to women’s advancement to a sponsorship gap in their career progression. In her view, sponsorship of females to top positions would achieve rapid advancement that years of skills and qualifications would not. Moreover, writers of popular literature, such as Sandberg (2013) noted that ambition fuels women’s advancement.
Growing up as a woman in the United States, I still see women face prejudice. People are still prejudiced against women, it is not as awful as it once was but, it is still there. I have watched them get told they could not do anything or a specific job because "they are not capable". That they did not have the right "skill set" because they were a woman and not a man. Some people are always going to be prejudiced
“Some women accepted their status, but many rebelled against it, More and more women came to realize that, in order to be effective social reformers they would first need to acquire legal rights as women.” (The women’s rights) After the women had realized that they needed the legal rights, they tried everything to get those rights, but the men did not like the idea of their women or any women having rights to do anything. Especially to vote. They hated that they wanted their own legal rights and tried anything to convince them different. The idea of their lady have an opinion or any rights made them sick to their stomachs. Power with a women was not a good idea to them.
