Kiss me underneath de mistletoe, show me baby that you love so-oh-oh
rest in love babies
The future of feminism is definitely a difficult thing to foretell. Women could rule, stay how they are, or be worse and back down to where they were in the 19th century.
There are so many issues going on right now. Like abortion, rape, women in the work place, image issues, just sooo many.
But hopefully in the future, women will be able to choose FREELY about what they want to do with THEIR bodies, They can choose either to give up their babies or keep them. They will be able to get paid the same or even more than men when hey work the same jobs. There will be less attacks, like rapes or sexual harassment.
For a women, the future sounds nice.
That is such a bad representation. I know that most working women aren’t like that, they are definitely more serious. Women are made to feel like they need to work harder and be more serious than men because men were the breadwinners…BEFORE.
Women are still being treated like it’s the 19th or 20th century. Women are breadwinners now too. It’s totally reasonable for men to be the stay at home dads!
Here’s a statistic: “56.5% of all mothers with children under the age of 1 were in the labor force” in 2011. (http://www.catalyst.org/knowledge/statistical-overview-women-workplace)
A mother with a child under the age of 1 is working, that was crazy back in the day, but it’s normal now.
What doesn’t make sense to me is why women are being paid less for doing the same jobs as men. Because men are the alpha dogs? NEGATIVE. Maybe in the Baby Boomer generation or something, but it’s the 21st century!
Not only do women have to worry about being paid less than men for the same jobs, they also have to worry about sexual harassment issues.
I don’t remember the name, but I was watching this show and this women had been promoted and was in with the “top dogs” which only had men. Because she was in a vulnerable position, just being promoted and the only woman, she was harassed by a coworker. She felt like she couldn’t say anything because it was the first day! That pisses me off, no women should ever be treated that way.
EQUAL IS THE WAY.
“The female body has been seen as battle ground for women’s rights”
How is this relevant to women and freedom?
Abortion, rape, plastic surgery, who women “give” themselves to, it’s all a controversial issue because people make it one! Other people, women AND men, have to put their faces into other people’s business. IT’S A WOMAN’S BODY, LET HER DO WHAT SHE WANTS WITH IT.
I saw this episode of Law and Order: SVU, and a woman went to the pharmacy to get the morning after pill, and the woman working said that she wouldn’t give it to her because she doesn’t believe that other women should throw away their chance to become pregnant, or something along those lines. And the women trying to get the pills was only using it because she didn’t want to give birth to her abusing husbands baby. Moral of the story: Don’t push your beliefs on others when you don’t know the reason for their decisions.
About eight years back, my mom got a tummy tuck because she wasn’t feeling good about herself. My mom also buys expensive and nice looking things. She loves posting everything she does on Facebook. I asked my dad why she did these things. He told me that my mom had nothing as a child and now she works really hard to buy her expensive and nice looking things that she loves posting on Facebook.
I don’t like plastic surgery, personally, but if a woman wants to feel better about herself and if she’s like my mom, and had nothing and works hard for her money, why not? It’s her body and money, she should be able to do what she wants with it, without people criticizing her.
Women’s bodies should be free from other people’s opinions. Ladies remember; IT’S NOT THEIRS, IT’S YOURS.
