Save the turf’ this shows us how the Mundy sisters are trying to envelope the fact that they are not stable as in that society it was patriarchal and needed a man to run the household as Jack is unwell they are unable to rely on him so he is more of burden on them . We can get a sense of injustice within the sisters as they feel they are treated unwell by Kate. Kate who is the dominate sisters within the family she has taken on both roles of bread winner and the mother figure and leaving the sisters to be filling in the gap of the male roles. ‘Two unpaid servants’ Agnes who is voicing for not just herself but Rosie as well gives us the feeling that she is dominant with Rosie or even more of a mother figure to her . ‘Rose and I’ this gives us a feeling of partition between the sisters as Agnes and Rosie have created a unit, this gives the audience the image of love and desperation as the sisters are affected by their financial situation as well as their personal .
Unfortunately the recent report tells us that only by 2095 we can achieve the full gender equality on the workplace. However, of course, we could try and shorten that time. It is obviously important to have not only males in the business world, because this way we miss out on many opportunities that women could bring to the world, due to the different perception of values. When for example men are driven by mostly material success, women tend to build up relationships and friendly environment on the workplace. However, sometimes emotions and nurturing can affect the business in a negative manner.
Just the Way We Are Everyone thought that there are similar differences between males and females. Both genders are different through their social, emotional and intellectual qualities. Gender roles influence women and men in virtually every area of life including family and occupation, but are women and men subject to different roles or behavior expectations? Gender role by definition is,” the public image of being male or female that a person presents to others.” (Dictionary.com). In early American culture it was common for a women’s job to be an obedient housewife in clear contrast to the male’s duty to be a job holder.
Edgell says that women do most decision making frequently on a probably daily basis, but their decisions go unnoticed whereas men make fewer decisions more infrequently but they seem to be the more important decisions such as moving house or buying a car or other serious financial decisions. A radical feminist would say that Edgells study just outlines the fact that we are living in a patriarchal society and that men are viewed more highly and have more power and control in the relationship, and that women are just used for everyday menial tasks. In conclusion, there is much to y for both sides of the argument but it is difficult to decide either way. It appears that there is some equality but we have a long way to go before actual
but the fact that most of these men are in two-career couples will mute some of the depressing elements of their unemployment”. (Holahan 158). Most men want to work for the satisfaction of being the men of the house. Many feel weaker if their wive’s are earning their income. It’s untraditional for a woman to take care of the family, but these are stereotypes that are being crushed by the feet of women in the workforce in today’s society.
High income careers, management careers, political careers and engineering carriers are considered just for men. Home chores are clearly for women. It’s not expected from a man to do jobs like cooking, cleaning the house , care child in home or babysitting jobs although this pattern have been changed a little in recent years due to social and economic changes. Although based on traditional gender roles some fields like nursing are highly feminine this pattern not only change but also this change effects on other fields like gender roles in work area. The number of highly educated women in management, engineering, journalism and social science increased in recent years and this change are changing all former social structure related to gender roles.
Men are socialised into exploitative relationships in relation to work and they carry this socialisation over into the home and their relationship to women. b. Patriarchy is an ideology (a set of related beliefs about the world - in this instance, male - female relationships) that stems from male attempts to justify the economic exploitation of women. c. The "family system" characteristic of modern societies benefits capitalism (and, by extension, the men who tend to dominate positions of power and influence) because women: - can be forced / socialised into unpaid domestic labour. - can be forced / socialised into responsibility for child-rearing. This benefits the Capitalist because they do not have to pay women to perform this role (the "reproduction of labour power" in society).
I try not to let the media influence me. For example; I do household chores that typically are portrayed as a woman’s responsibility like doing the dishes, laundry, and vacuuming. Honestly, I never saw my step dad do any of those things. Doing household chores doesn’t make me any less of a man, just more

In very few instances, say projects covering solely the supply of materials and equip¬ment, can projects adopt a non-gender-differen¬tiated procedure. Gender Imbalance in Project Management Recruitment Though more women are now getting involved, project management it is still dominated by men. Is this because of sexist attitudes of recruiters, or is it because of some other reasons? Female Project Managers, who had established themselves in project management in spite of their gender sometimes express real feelings of intimidation as part of their early experiences when they stepped into this predominantly male discipline.
