Mass Media could also make a strong contribution, with the implementation of media campaigns, to the dissemination of the concept of gender equality. If people see in the media the overcome of the differences between men and women will bring him back into everyday life. The Mass Media have always unconsciously affected and influenced the thinking and behavior of society. Media should focus success stories of established, successful & renowned women in spite of indecent representation of women. As an important agent of socialization shaping of gender roles, its mechanisms for checks and balances with respect to gender need to be strengthened.
There are many, many more things women did to change this law but, these are the main things they did. Another important thing women couldn 't do was work. Women wanted to work and pursue jobs just like men did, except women couldn 't work. Based of their sex and gender people thought women needed to be a stay at home, homemaker.

Throughout this semester, I have been discussing the underrepresentation of female athletes in the media. This underrepresentation and the manner in which female athletes are being portrayed should be brought up because it affects how the public sees female athletes. This is a problem because it affects how people view women in sports. There are several perspectives in which this problem can be discussed and they are based on stereotypes, appearances, and the type of sports showed in media. I decided to discuss this topic because compared to their male counterparts women are seen as inferior in the sports domain.
Before the Women 's Rights reforms, American women were discriminated in society, home life, education, and the workforce. As a result of the Women 's Rights Movement, women gained the right to vote, access to higher education and opportunities to enter the workforce, overall changing the femmine life for the better. Women in the 1800s were stripped of their voice, not only were they unable to vote, they were often kept from speaking openly in public. Their lack of rights left them dependent on men (Bonnie and Ruthsdotter). The American Women were voiceless, they had no say in society, however the reform movement would change that.
Women has encountered sexism on a daily basis since history books could even record them. Countless times throughout time, women faced through struggles of unfair treatment, discrimination, and oppression due to the basis of their gender. From a piece written by Carol Tavris, it is mentioned that when men have problems of their own, society often blames it on his personality or the environment he is in. However, when women have problems, society blames it on her mental state or psyche. The explanations we make of females with men are so different because of how prominent sexism is in this society.
These positions give each a different experience and perceptions in life and society. Men have gained political power within society and have used this to suppress women’s ideas and thoughts from achieving public acknowledgment (Muted Group Theory). Due to the male-bias language, women have to convert their thoughts, experiences, and meanings into male language for them to be heard and acknowledged. Due to these assumptions, women have a hard time expressing themselves and making their voices heard in society. Women can understand men when they are expressing themselves, but men cannot comprehend women, which frustration for women because they are not being understood in the way they would like.
Gender proves that there is still a hierarchy that exists for those denied the status of “human”, it is not a universal bottom but a web of intersectional oppression. Sylvia Wynters notes that domination needs a cultural model, such as female domesticity, that encourages exploitation. Hansberry’s Raisin in the Sun presents the division between community and identity in black womanhood. Beneatha denies to sacrifice herself, but faces rejection from her black female peers. However, Ruth puts herself second only to realize it will never be enough.
Some of the advice the mother gives, like using herbal medicine and catching fish, brings the idea Antiguan women live in poor, rural locations. Growing up from an impoverished area serves to be another disability because these young women who want to urbanize traditional values couldn’t receive the resources to do so. Antiguan women made attempts to bring change to many of their expectations. However, they were clearly oppressed by the society they live in, and at the same time were forced to conform to social expectations or face severe ridicule, which could have great

In When Chickenheads Come Home to Roost, Morgan evaluates how women lack freedom in a society that does not give women their deserved freedom (Morgan 156). Morgan’s analysis is founded on the life of a black woman who lives in a complex world where her freedom is constrained. Feminist women have to have informal affairs so as to ensure that their freedom is not violated. Evidently, feminism has resulted in women realizing their freedom by bleaching the traditional
Only male abolitionists can attended while the female were excluded in the convention. At that time, women were the dependent of men. Married women had to obey their husband, and they did not have any rights for herself which caused many women suffered in inferiority complex. Their inferiority complex also caused them inequality in education and career opportunities which were the conclusion of the Declaration of Sentiments. Women did not have the opportunity to study at school, and they were treated differently with men in work field.
HI, Miah you are right the Women 's Movement did change the view of women. However, there were different phases this movement. The 1700 's,1830’s,1837,1920’s and the 70’s are just a few eras where women fought to be treated as equals. The right to an education and freedom from slavery were all issues that impacted this movement. “Women had to create their own antislavery organizations because they were being excluded from many of the men’s organization” (pg.321 Social Inequality).
“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.
Gender inequality has been a constant controversial issue in today’s society. Isn’t it wrong to treat women, especially the ones who gave birth to us with tremendous disrespect? By the end of this speech, I hope to persuade you why gender inequality is futile,
