Introduction

How far does your own experience lead you to believe that men and women have equal chances? Since I was a little girl my parents and teacher have always taught me that boys and girls are the same. I was wondering, then why we have to label a boy as he and a girl as she? Why boys and girls need to go to toilet separately? Then I gradually understand the true meaning of it. When my mother said to me 'boys and girls are the same' doesn't mean they are identically the same. In fact she wanted to suggest they have equal value, equal rights and should be accorded equal treatment. I believe I was born in a totally equalitarian society and generation. ...read more.

Conclusion

As a matter of fact, women is rather talented than men think, women are indeed being loving and caring, but when they reach to the extreme, they can be much stronger than men. Being as a female, I assume none of us would like to work in a company that is sex discriminated, as the women in Wimbledon claim equal prize money as men. When I get married in the future, my husband has to be open-minded enough to let me work at the outside world as well as doing household management and childcare. My mother is a role-model of being a super woman taking good care of my sister and me and provides such a well education and environment for us to live in. Therefore, women are no longer the weaker sex and they will fight for any opportunities that men can receive. ?? ?? ?? ?? Florence Yim 11G ...read more.
