This week we will be discussing gender in society. The text talks about gender roles of men vs women and Sexism and Discrimination. Are gender roles still rigid in the US society? Does a lot of gender bias still occur at home and work (for both men and women) in American society? Provide an example.
PLEASE EXPLAIN WHETHER YOU AGREE WITH MY CLASSMATE RESPONSE TO THE ABOVE QUESTION AND WHY? (A MININUM OF 125 WORDS)
I would like to speak about the role of a home maker. In the 50’s and 60’s it was the norm for the husband to go to work while the wife stays home to cook, clean, and take care of the kids. In the 70’s and 80’s there was a need for both parents to work. Women saw discrimination in jobs they were given the opportunity to perform. For example, women would mostly be employed as a secretary to have a male work over her. While that women might have more experience as her male counterpart but wouldn’t be given the opportunity to do so because she was a woman. In the 90’s and 00’s there was an increase of women in management roles. With the evolution of the work place it is more acceptable to have a women manager. The roles even have reversed from the 50’s and 60’s, it is the norm today to see the husband stay home to cook, clean, and take care of the kids while the wife works. The only issues gender equality in the workplace is if a woman has the same job title as a man she is still paid less for the same amount of work being performed.
