However, they face many obstacles and setbacks because of their gender despite their ability to play baseball. During the recruiting process, women were selected based on their talent as well as their looks. Girls with amazing talent were denied the opportunity to play simply based on their looks (Greenhut et al 1992). The organizers believed
U1A7- That’s More Than Just My Opinion Assignment #4 By: Chelsea Holmes Many women around the world are being brainwashed by the appeal of how a woman should looked, based on the media’s perspective. They show women as skinny, chesty, and cane free but when they Photoshop these women, they don’t take into consideration the feelings of women. The media’s idea of a woman’s body image can negatively impact her self-esteem. It can cause them to feel fat and ugly, result to harmful and unhealthy weight loss and it can cause suicide. The media’s idea of how a woman should look causes many women to feel fat and ugly about themselves.
Because women are sometimes stereotyped as the weaker sex, they become disadvantaged and don’t share many of the privileges men are given. This is why feminism is such an important matter today. Feminism is a broad social movement that strives for equality for women and seeks to end of sexism in all forms (Topics in Feminism). However, negative attitudes toward feminism have continued to exist. Feminists are often stereotyped as angry, man-hating, unattractive women who scream absurdly about their political views.
Girls can be as or maybe more competitive then boys. And those are the girls who should be playing on the same sports team as boys. But all girls might not be physically on that level and its dangerous to allow them to play on the same team. They can get hurt and its easier to just allow them to play on their own team with other girls. Research shows that when boys get hurt they can shake it off.
Another challenge for women is how they are denigrated in the media and by men. One greatest abuse against women is the violence that still exists in the world. Women are currently being mistreated in many different ways in society. In their everyday lives, women are subjected to discrimination due to being a woman. In many work places, women are disadvantaged because they are not being selected for advancement in jobs.
Tokenism and Women’s Promotion in the Entertainment Business Tokenism is preventing women’s promotion in the entertainment industry. Tokenism in the workplace has been an issue for women ever since women started working in male-dominated jobs. This is also seen in the entertainment industry where it is also a male dominated sector and women are being tokens in expense of their gender and desire to be an artist. But, when women are being chosen for the same roles, the same sound and look, their opportunities for promotion are being prevented tremendously, limiting them to do only certain jobs. Media is how we change the view of the world and when women are constantly generalized and understated as such, not only are the women who are in the entertainment industry are affected, but so is the way the society looks at women is.
During this time women were deprived from having an education. Depending on the man in the woman’s life would determine how she would be seen socially. It can be considered that when thinking about women during the Middle Ages one would need to understand the difference of being powerful or of being weak. Women had to sometimes not think of themselves as women in order to be a part of their own society. Because of this the male domination during this time badly affected the status of women and their roles in society.
This leads to hegemony, where the powerful remain in control. In today society, female sports do not get the recognition that men sports do in that they do not make the same amount of money, the same amount of respect, and the same amount of television coverage. Gender discrimination root comes from the interest and desires of society. Female athletes are frequently looked upon as not being as entertaining or lacking athleticism compared to male athletes.
Because the media surrounds women with such unrealistic models, women have changed the way they think. The media has sent a hidden message that in order for a woman to be considered beautiful, she must be unhealthy. Women, no matter what size, are not satisfied with their body image and always want to be better. Women often try different forms of dieting, working out, and often times develop eating disorders. Such a standard of perfection is unrealistic and even dangerous.
Women also is portrayed as week and delicate so women hasn’t got an access to jobs like building, driving and so on, just because they don’t seem as strong as men. For example if woman is quite skinny and she seems delicate employers will think that she will not be able to work in building sites because she might be not so strong to do this type of work. Also women always was portrayed as psychologically weak and some employers might not take women on jobs like doctor just because they think that women couldn’t handle for example operations. Firstly, women’s independence is very important just because a
