Rape on the Night Shift is a documentary about the sexual assaults that some of the janitors suffer while working at night. This documentary reveals the injustice that these workers have to go through because most of them are undocumented and they don’t know their rights. The experiences of woman in this documentary is correlated with the feminist theory, the idea of seeing women unequal to men and the idea of the men having the power to control women. Indeed, the documentary let us see the gender inequality, exploitation, and the de-valuing of woman’s work. We see the feminist theory in the documentary when the managers or supervisors sexually abuse of their workers.

This movement was the building blocks to why women have the rights we have now. The Women 's Liberation Movement was one of the more known feminist movements that happened after World War II. This event motivated women in developed countries to want the right to be something other than a stay-at-home mom and housewife. Women felt they deserved to be treated like men, meaning wanting the same pay and job opportunities.
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
By paying women less, they face punishment based on gender. The gap still exists due to the motherhood penalty, lack of negotiation and employers bias. Sociologists use the term, the “motherhood penalty.” It states that in the workplace, working mothers encounter disadvantages in pay compared to childless women. It also says that women need to negotiate and speak up when they are not paid fairly.

It is all about EQUALITY. It is not just about voting rights or getting jobs. It is about the way women are cared and treated in everyday life.
Gender inequality and discrimination in the field of education, media and politics in Assamese society From the ancient age women are said to be weak and fragile and not fit to work. They have been facing discrimination by the man and the society and they still facing and are fighting up against them. People do not realize what is it like to get a woman educated instead they keep her in the house and make her do household or do other work.

Pugh claims that ‘People had simply changed their minds in the sense that male prejudice against women had melted in face of revelations about their capabilities during wartime and their contribution to war effort’. Pugh’s view has somewhat strong validity because women were able to move away from stereotypical roles as they took on male jobs and endured the horrible work conditions and pay - this helped support their country showing patriotism and shifting society’s mindset. This can be supported as on factories and farms it was usually calculated that it would need three women to do the work of two men.

However, not all views were changed as some employers made agreements with unions promising to protect skilled men’s jobs after the war; portraying traditional views of women were still present - they were still expected of maintaining their ‘wife and mother’ role.
