Women felt they were treated equally prior to the war; however, that changed after US’ occupation in Iraq. Not only in the aspect of the work force but daily activities as well. Riverbend comments on how most women lost their jobs or risked their lives if they worked. Also, men carried guns, giving them a sense of power, and that they were dominant over women. Additionally, women could not leave the house after the war without being accompanied by a male.
They are relatively unorganized, because most of them are not the primary bread winner. Moreover, they are available in large numbers for a short-term employment and for most married women at any rate; their, 'heart' isn't in the prospect of a life time's employment. And this raises the argument often advanced against equal pay for women. Single women do not need the same pay as married men. Yet, a married woman's pay is considered additional, while the married man's is basic to the family.
When she began working for the company everybody was nice and supportive of her, but she noticed a high employee turnover amongst those working for top management. She didn't get why her peers would want to leave, they worked in a nice office, the pay was great, the benefits were great, it did not add up. She then explained, as her superiors felt more comfortable with her the mood around the office changed. The topics of conversation seemed to contain more and more sexual overtones, and repeatedly noticed her direct superior attempting to look down her shirt when she would lean over. She felt as if part of her job was to amuse her bosses, and came to see why people were regularly leaving
He soon began to spend days and nights with her, ignoring all his other wives. This was very hypocritical of the Koranic verses regarding polygamy, "Marry of the women who seem good to you two or three or four. And if ye fear that ye cannot do justice to so many then marry only

They wanted equality for women in the workplace, in society generally and at home. “After discovering that they could work in high-paying factory jobs, the majority of women did not want to give these jobs up after World War II.” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Womenroles_in_the_WorldWarsUnitedStatesofAmerica

Outline and evaluate sociological explanations for social inequality (women) In the following essay I am going to be outlining and evaluating three sociological perspectives as to why women face inequalities in society. The three sociological perspectives that will be discussed are the Feminist view, Functionalist view and The Conflict Theory. In society, it is argued that women are treated in an unequal manner.

In many work places, women are disadvantaged because they are not being selected for advancement in jobs. The Human Rights Commission shared that in many workplaces, Managers must work full-time, as this might disadvantage women because they are more likely to work part-time because of caring responsibilities. Another discrimination against women is men are often still paid more than women. In addition to this, women are still responsible for more household work even when working full time in the workforce. A female scientist stated in a magazine that she, “does many of the household chores, but she isn't alone.” A number of her female colleagues also do more around the house than their male partners.
They say that in the world today women and men are equal. But that is not the case. When it comes to media women are always underrepresented, may it be in politics, business, sports, journalism or in television and films. In this research I will aim to find out why this happens, why it is that the world has progressed so much and so have the women but due to some factors they are just not considered as equal to men. Women are under paid as compared to them, they are quoted lesser in terms of new papers, given lesser speaking roles in the case of films and television shows and those are just a few examples.
