Though there is much progress to be made before equality among men and women on the news desk is attained, women continue to stand firmly on their views concerning discrimination and don’t go down without a fight. The incompetence society deems of women as news anchors is unjust; women are more than qualified and their potential to thrive is beyond what one can imagine. Though the role physical appearance plays among male and female news anchors is a crucial one, especially for women, it should not interfere with a woman’s professional progress. Discrimination severely limits a woman’s advancement in their profession, which is greatly unjust; opportunities to ascend should be given to all and anything that inhibits this should be terminated.
On the one hand it means that a person could realize him/herself, and on the other - that the work done is highly appreciated. Considering a career in a woman's life pointing out the complexity and diversity that it has for a woman is rather important.

Even today at the beginning of the XXI century the society is still at the stage of savagery since reproductive function is declared as the main purpose of female. In many countries, women are deprived of the opportunity to demonstrate their ability to implement professional knowledge, experience and skills.

Because Always is a feminine product company, they aim to empower women during and throughout their womanhood.
Think about the men and women in everyday life and compare their actual successes to their aptitudes, drives, and intelligences that would theoretically enable them to achieve success. Excluding factors such as differing social backgrounds and upbringings, it does not seem that an ‘aptly prepared’, ‘decently intelligent’, or ‘hard-working’ sort of woman will always achieve in the real world. No, many females are deterred from scholastic and professional achievement by social expectations, many of which are outdated because they are ‘standards’ that have been set too low. When asked about what they wanted to be when they grew up, many of my female classmates responded that they would like to be stay-home-at-home moms. I was puzzled.

According to Kniesler, [t]here is no one ideal woman, just as there is no ideal feminist…Hermione is a feminist role model because she grasps the foundations of feminism – sexual equality – and remains true to herself, overcoming the pressure of society and tradition. Part of the reason Hermione is such a solid character and powerful feminist role model is because she refuses to be shackled by the role of supporting character and establishes an identity for herself within Harry’s narrative. Hermione achieves her personal goals through combining her own ambition and drive with the support of her friends and mentors; meanwhile everyone – fellow characters and readers alike – obtains access to a new understanding and respect for gender equality (101-102).
Most women could be struggling but are still capable of holding their own. Everyone has stress. Life wouldn’t be the same without it. Men and women are different in many ways, and stress is no different.
