Men and Women are not equal- Discuss

Extracts from this document...


Men and Women are not equal- Discuss I think that men and women are now equal because women can handle a country, for example a woman as a president. Many governments have both male and female representatives. Because of the change, women have more opportunities to work for their families; many companies nowadays are owned or managed by women. Unlike before, men are just the ones who have jobs because women stayed at home to take care of the family. A lot of progress has been made since the 1960's. Television series now portray women as successful career makers. Men now share in the raising of children and household responsibilities.

"Men and women are equal; we have female ministers in my church and have done for a long time" Member of United Reform Church In conclusion, equality has become a reality. Let's just face the fact that women are often not given enough responsibility based on the possibility that they might become pregnant. The numbers of sexual harassment suits have increased over the past 10 years. A lot of things are randomly happening to each and every one of us; even a man or a woman suffers.
