Oregon was a court case that changed the lives of the working class women in 1908. This court case stated that the long hours of labor is dangerous for women because of their lack in physical strength and endurance. Women had to be treated differently from men because they are the ones that bear children; therefore, the working conditions need to be safer for women. I believe the Supreme Court saw this as an opportunity to keep the future of their society and the United States safe from the harmful effects of working in hazardous places. Overworking of the women was also a concern, so the Supreme Court also set a maximum amount of hours a woman can work.
A woman could work just as hard as a man but sadly most people in the 1950’s could not see that. In any job or sort of work, a woman will be treated as if they are less than a man or a “second class citizen” just because of their gender. Girls who want jobs and to earn their place in society will soon see that this was a hard thing for a woman to do. The women of the 1950s though must tell them to stand up for themselves for that is the only way that they can climb in society and defeat the “suburban housewife” mold that will try to be shoved upon them. A young women of the 1950’s could not accept privileges nor prejudices because of their gender or they are just as bad and hopeless as the “suburban
Women face getting treated differently, lower paying positions, the opinions of men, and the idea that because they are women they are not capable of the same kind of work men are capable of. The more people that support the different movements for women’s rights the better chance of this issue becoming more well known. Although some may know the struggle women go through to be compared as equally to men, there is still room for more to learn about this issue. Just because women were brought on earth to make more lives does not mean they are weaker and should have to go through this everyday of their
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.
Women are also stereotyped as stay at home mothers. There is an invisible restriction put on women by men that they can’t be a mother and have a full time job at the same time. Neil French, the WPP Group PLC executive stated women “Don’t make it to the top because they don’t deserve to” and that “women are rarities in the senior corporate positions because most are unwilling to make the personal sacrifices of time and energy required to be the boss” (Maich). The words spoken by this successful male go to show the inequality faced by women every day. Women have an even harder job balancing household obligations and a job.
Many of these thoughts stem from long-lived stereotypes and how women were treated in the past. Education has become much better, though and men and women both have access to great education. Therefore the reasoning to treat one gender differently from another should lessen. In the past employers could argue that women do not have the knowledge or capability of working for the same amount, but now they

Heavy amounts of discrimination came with the entrance of women into the workforce, but their entrance affected the future and helped further the rights of

Gisel Mendoza March 4, 2018 Mr. Miller AP English The Outcome of Degrading a Woman Historically, women have been seen as less valuable to society. Their roles were to have children and serve their husband. Many women are often victims suffering from physical abuse and political injustices. Society portrays them as submissive and silenced. Even though now women are able to join the workforce, they are still getting paid less than men.
However, according to radical feminism, the progress made is too little and has created more problems for women. Within marriage, women do double work as paid workers and unpaid domestic workers. In the workplace, women are denied opportunities for promotion and earn less than men earn. Radical feminists call for radical restricting of the society in order to smash
