Back To Work Working Mothers
1,101 wordsMany women today are facing choices that their mothers never had to face. One of these choices is whether or not to go back to work after having a child. This was practically unheard of in the 1950 's. In the 1990 's it is not whether the mother will or will not go back to work rather a question of when. When did the choice become set in stone? Why do the mothers of today have to work outside the home versus working in the home, much like their mothers did? When one thinks of the subject of work...

University Of Minnesota Sexual Harassment
1,619 wordsHow often do you see a woman as an executive in charge of a large company? And of those women that have succeeded into these positions, how many of them have families at home? Not all that many. It seems that the way society looked at women in the past has hindered them from succeeding in both the family and career aspects simultaneously.

Gender Inequality Female Roles
1,283 wordsThe question on how gender inequality shapes peoples' life chances is one that has been echoing widely through minds of modern society in the recent decades. Historically sociologists have suggested, amongst various other reasons, that biological differences between men and women constitute as one of the main reasons for males having better job opportunities.
