Chisholm’s viewpoint includes the reason women weren’t treated with equal respect as men, was because women weren’t given the chance. Both authors battle the reason for gender inequality equally demonstrating how this social problem existed; only differentiating on the reasons. In this essay I will argue that Shirky’s position on gender inequality is stronger based on the anecdotes he provides of women asserting themselves to become more successful; additionally providing a solution for women to become more aggressive. In the 1970’s, when a woman walked into an interview, she was questioned if she can type. This occurs because of the stereotype that women usually occupy the lower standard jobs; the less important ones, in other words.
While Taylor shows how Ivanka Trump has displayed a great deal of power in writing her novel, she does not address what is fundamentally lacking in Women Who Work. Several articles seem to be scrutinizing the novel in the same way. Jia Tolentino states in her article “Ivanka Trump Wrote a Painfully Oblivious Book for Basically No One” contained within The New Yorker, “Women Who Work is mostly composed of artless jargon (“All women benefit immeasurably by architecting their lives”) and inspirational quotes you might find by Googling “inspirational quotes.” The quotes within this book are again lacking in originality and do little to benefit the American working woman. Ivanka Trump claims to be a feminist, and her actions of trying to promote change within politics by earning more parental leave in most firms are contributing to the feminist movement. However, her book has been considered to be a step backwards since her advice on getting ahead in one’s career is coming from a woman who already has a head start.

A main weakness would be how she discusses a certain topic in one chapter and then in the next she goes against everything she just said. For example she discusses the topic of mentors and how she does not really agree with people seeking mentors but then goes onto write “The more women help one another, the more we help ourselves. Acting like a coalition truly does produce results”(Sandberg, 164). This statement like others in the book leaves you wondering what she truly believes because she continues to contradict herself.
When women tried to participate in athletic competitions, they were labeled as inferiors to the men and were thought to be unfeminine. The reason for this was the difference in upbringing of men and women. Men were taught to show evidence of physical strength and control; while on the other hand, women were expected to develop physical attributes and domestic abilities (201-223). Women broke through these stereotypical thoughts of being homemakers during the second part of feminism. This was precisely when doors began to open, and playing courts were allowing the shift in sports.

From the first movie, Dare to Compete, which highlighted the development of women's participation in sports, to Love and Basketball, which fully accepts women's participation in sports, we examined a range of views and opinions on the proper role of women in sports. Dare to Compete presented images of women in sports over many years, highlighting the evolution of female athletes. At first female athletes still had to be dainty. They were women first, and athletes second. Women were believed to be too fragile for most sports and were told that they would have problems reproducing if they were too physically active.
Gender Inequality was what Woolf emphasized as the major downfall of women writers and Stael shared thos... ... middle of paper ... ... Both Woolf and Stael were extraordinary authors of their times, especially when one considers the hardships they faced. Woolf would indeed find much of her arguments written within Stael’s work. In her reading she would be pleased to find agreement with many of the arguments brought up by Stael, but of course she would not agree to them all. The pity Stael says women should be shown would not consist in Woolf’s vocabulary.
Woolf breaks nearly all the rules of essay writing in her argumentative essay. She addresses the reader in the first person, tells the reader that she is lying, focuses on unnecessary details, and even contradicts herself from time to time. Why does Woolf, a competent writer, decide to write this way? Perhaps, her unorthodox style supports her perception on the difficulties that exists in women becoming serious writers. Her writing style constructs a relationship between her essay and women writers; it shows the reader that for women to become a writer without a "a room of one's own" is just as unconventional as her writing style.
In some cases, it requires the Chopin brings attention to women's internal struggles with themselves and who they are told to be in a society that dismisses female autonomy, she doesn't do anything to solve or change them. It often appears that there is a choice between being independent or being married because identity is often lost in marriage and characters are unable to find a balance, making the characters hopeless. Another way some characters lose some of their identity is in their name. In many of her works women who were married were often referred to as Mrs. –. This would have been a proper way to address the woman at the time, but it gives the character only one identity.
