Feminism has changed the world and made women happier; therefore, it should not be viewed negatively in the society. Feminism will always be needed in the current society because, even with laws to protect women, there is still violence against wom... ... middle of paper ... ...nt has produce change in the modern society, including women's suffrage, more nearly equitable pay with men, the right to initiate divorce proceedings and where there is fairness, better access to education, and the right to own property, in addition to the right of women to make individual decisions regarding pregnancy, and abortion. Today, feminist movements are still in force and continue fighting for the rights of women. Feminists in the past have achieved women more rights and equality, therefore, feminism is a necessary value for today’s women and the fight is still on. Works Cited Hooks, Bell.
Female brains are good at verbal tasks and males’ brains are better adapted for mathematical and visual-spatial tasks. Men give preference to action whereas women prefer talking. To say that women and men fundamentally differ when it comes to communicating is nothing but a false belief. But still, such myths have taken their roots firmly in workplaces. A call center manager once told he prefers to hire females since he wanted someone who could interact with people in a better way.
Men and women communicate differently not because it is a biologically encoded in our DNA but because society moles us to act upon our biological difference. I want to explore on this idea that society teaches men and women to converse differently to each other, assert themselves differently in certain situations talk more or less depending on your gender. One of the most obvious ways we are able to compare gender communication a difference is through conversation. Most of people can think of a time when they’ve a had conversation with the opposite sex, and felt that they weren’t on the same page as the person you were talking to. This isn’t because you are just wired to think differently, this is because society has long told us that men must be competitive while women must take submissive roles in society.
In society today, there are effects of sexism. Some effects are “sexist divided roles, interests, skills, and behaviors which then impedes their development as individuals” (Fradette 2012: 8). Men and women are developed differently because there is a divide on what women and men are supposed to
However the ways in which males and females take account of the media is very different. Woman see pictures in magazines etc and think that they must take the time and effort to reach the way that these woman look. However it is ever so hard to look like celebrities do etc without the make up artists and hair cutters that these celebrities have. In comparison men see the images of other “perfect” males and don’t feel under pressure to look like them. In conclusion the evidence points towards the fact that the media still influences gender representation, but have a less significant role in putting these to both men and woman.
That included having childcare for working mothers. This prepared women to be more aggressive and be more demanding so society would accept them and so they could continue taking on these nontraditional roles after war (“Women in Society”). Working made women more demanding and they stood up themselves. It did take some convincing to have women join the workforce. The concept of working women was encouraged and advertised during the war because employment was necessary.
This was a setback for women’s rights everywhere, since the only way they were able to obtain the right to vote was by admitting that they were different, and needed to be able to vote to protect themselves form the big strong men. There were many women who fought for female equality, and many who didn’t care, but eventually the feminists won the vote. Women today are still fighting for equality in the home, in the workplace, and in society as a whole, which seems like it may take centuries of more slow progress to achieve.

Title IX has changed a women’s life in a positive way with the changes that have affected many women attending a college or university. Schools have to allow women in any classes that are offered but for sports it is a bit different. The school has to offer the same number of opportunities for women sports as men sports. Some have said that this will cause schools to cut some of the men’s sports to allow for equal numbers. “Overall, men's athletic opportunities since Title IX's passage have increased,” said the Women’s Sports Foundation.
The feminist movement raises political campaigns for the rectification of rights that should be permitted to women in the public, workplace and most importantly in one’s home. Women’s movement turn out to be a significant role as time advanced, diminutive ideas were anticipated at first, minor alterations occur but not much was being done for the privileges of a woman therefore making the women’s movement more hostile. It can be proposed that women are far too emotional to have equal rights as men due to the hormones that occur while a woman is pregnant or on her menstrual cycle, although the women’s movement has been more beneficial than crucial. Women have helped enhance the economy drastically, improve the family time in homes, as well as
Sexuality in Canada has been a huge battle for women, especially in the 1990's. Instead of sexuality being a personal issue to some people, it became a huge political problem for the whole country. There were issues involved equality rights for the lesbian community and the rights for same sex couples to get married. In both the United States and Canada, a majority of people see sexuality as negative, instead of positive. Although, most people have learned to just accept it.
