However, in some places, women are still seen as inferior. One of the most obvious ways to prove this, is how hard it can be to find a job. Some companies prefer male employees and even though gender discrimination in hiring is illegal, businesses find ways to work around it. Both Stefan Eriksson and Michael Firth argue, “Women may get fewer firm contacts”(Eriksson, and et. all 307, Firth 891).
Today, many feminists go around stating there isn’t a need for men, women can survive on their own, and that women are better than men. As Saira Khan states in her article on Spiked, “modern-day feminists engage in man-bashing rather than dignified demands for equality.” (Khan 1). It just shows how feminists would rather take their anger out on men rather than realize we a... ... middle of paper ... ...oncludes is his article, “That’s how we’ve come to this backwards point where the new feminist activism, for some, is about oppressing those with different views. So much for equality!” (Furey 1). They would rather demand dominance than equality, call for justice for issues that are not really there, claim gender discrimination in the work place, and argue against any who try to oppose them.
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.
Women can do men’s job and men can do women’s too. “You should be successful, but not too successful, otherwise you would threaten the man” ( We should all be feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie). No woman should hear that. This is not true. Little steps and “advice” like that begin gender
Men feel like they can take advantage of women because they are superior, but that is completely wrong. Men should treat women the same way they treat their mothers, with respect. Also, stereotypes and gender bias have driven women who are interested in STEM fields away because they assume that STEM fields are for men only because of the stereotypes. An article stated, “Women have been deemed poor leaders because they spoke about team achievements by saying “we did… rather than I led the team…” (2016, Athena Macrow) Some reasons that make me believe some women do not go into STEM fields even though they are very good in math and science is because they might not be passionate about working in STEM fields or because they are interested in a different field of
They further push their point by using the Constitution to say they need it to protect their civil rights and need it to be enforced to isolate and remove sexual discrimination so that they can have equal opportunities in all areas so they could succeed. Women were highly discriminated against since men didn’t want to see them as equals since they were always seen as less than them. Women got paid much less than they did and weren’t given the same education and job opportunities as them which slowed down their progress. Men didn’t view this as wrong since they were always the ones who worked for the home and expected women to stay in jobs suited for women like social work, helping the community or teaching not becoming doctors or lawyers. Women didn’t want special privileges, they wanted to fully take responsibility as a full citizen.
Females were considered to have lack of leadership skills. Therefore, they are less likely to be devoted to taking over the responsibilities at work. Moreover, social factors such as media-driven perceptions which strengthen the gender conception as men being experts in the work field and women lack in the male-dominated jobs such as business (Shin 1). Media drives the view of people towards women which became a social norm. People believe that men are more superior than women because of the media, it becomes the state of mind without any proven information that men are more preferred than women.
This not only allows male artists to have a more likely chance of being respected, but also affects the views audiences have on female artists. Sexism is shown in the music industry towards female artists. Sexism towards women occurs when men feel as if they are superior to women. Men have not always looked at women as equals, but more as objects to please themselves. Traditional values teach that men should provide and work for their family while women should just be mothers and take care of their homes for their husbands.
Women are not paid as much as men in sports nor in other jobs. Male employers look at women sexually and are less likely to hire women because of discriminatory practices. In order for an end to the discrimination against women, there has to be a cultural change and new policy has to be implemented (Bobbitt-Zeher 2011). More integration in male dominated fields is also necessary to relive the gender differences. Changing the aggressiveness or the masculinity-centered advertisement in sports may allow more women to participate.
Women that do not conform to societal e... ... middle of paper ... ...ally go to men. It also may be useful to try to do a gender-blind hiring process somehow so that any prejudices from hiring managers do not impact the inequalities that stem from the hiring process before women can even work in a male-dominated field. Another possibility to decrease the inequalities would be to give more rewards and reinforcement to women who are performing well in their occupations. If women know that they are doing well, they may doubt themselves less and be more confident in asking questions and expressing their opinions without being scared that what they say will be discounted by those around them. In conclusion, this is a very prominent issue that needs to be researched more so that women and men will be treated more equally where they work.
