In class today, my professor told me that women today are still not treated equally. She also mentioned that society, still lives in a man's world. After hearing this, it  made so much sense because in my opinion women are still treated unfairly, especially in the military. If you want a political standding, well lets take Hillary Clinton, when she dropped out of the election in 2008. Not one person supported her in Congress, so she had to drop out and give Barack Obama the chance to run against Sen. McCain. In my opinion, I think that it will be a long time for a woman to be president.

 

What do you think?? Do you think the nation is ready for a women president in 2012? Do you think women are treated unfairly today?

Don't get me started on this issue! I consider myself a feminist. Yes there are still double standards for women and men in society. Women have given up because we now have the right to vote but there is still so much to be done! Women are 49% of the workforce yet only 2% of women hold executive positions in Fortune 500 companies. Rape is still a he said/ she said issue! Rape pornography still exists and there is still a bill in the house that is fighting against Pro choice! There is still sex trafficking, child porn, and so many things wrong with society! We still have a long way to go. No we are still not equal but that needs to change SOON!
Very True!! There is so much that needs to be change for women to be recognized in a man's world, but it will take a long time to happen. The reason for this is because issues like rape, abortion, sex trafficking, and many other issues relating to women is what imposes most people to acknowledge women. Many belive that women are just way too sensitive to be able to discuss these issues before Congress.
I don't think women are treated fairly. I'm a graduate student who is learning about the gender roles in the field of teaching. In my class we discussed how maybe education doesn't get the respect and funding it deserves because it is a woman dominated field. The people who write the policies for education are all men. The people who create the standardized tests like the SAT are all men. We talked about how there's even a distrust in teachers perhaps because we are mostly women.
Having a female president would create huge rifts in our society and it's difficult to predict how things would change.
Brooke thanks for your comment! :) I must admit with you that education does not get the respect it deserves, trust me i agree with you! Coming from a family full of educators you learn that the system is unjust and very corrupt. I think that saddest part is that society doesn't say anything or do anything in order to help our education system.
