Women, you have equal rights to men in the 1st world. Why is it needed?
The pay gap has been debunked a billion times. It doesn't take into account how many hours they work, what jobs they have and whether the woman has maternal leave.You forgot to mention about the gender pay gap.
I don't think we need feminism though, more like humanity.
Thats where you're wrong kiddo.But it still exists, and also the reason why some people think feminism is still necessary. My country always has the largest gender pay gap among OECD nations (37.2% in 2015), worse than the United States. Even the Law itself prohibits employers using gender-based pay scales, in practice, they often end up earning a lot less than men. And nah, it doesn't always have something to do with the stuff you mentioned above as clearly stated by one of the worth mentioning testimonials: "My female co-worker entered the company with me, but she got lower bonus compared to other male workers." (Source). Maternal leaves and pregnancy may affect the gender pay gap, but the overall sexism itself is what I think has the largest proportion in creating discrimination in the workplace. Don't worry, I'm not saying this because I support feminism —I'm not even a female—, just stating one of the reasons why people think feminism is still necessary even in the first world. Gender violence and discrimination will always be issues whether in a developed society or not, just in different forms.
Women have equal rights in this country. The first and second wave of feminism made sense and was needed. Third wave is pointless, unless you live in the Middle East.Feminism is needed until humans can get along and not see anyone as lesser for their gender... so it's gonna be here for a long time.
So feminism will never go away, it's an ongoing goal for society. An egalitarian society takes work and even if it is never fully achieved, the closer we get, the better. We can't stop when we've only just began... We can still be progressing towards a just society and not allowing ourselves to fall back into bigoted ways. Feminism will not go away because it's still not over, humanity has a lot more work to do.That will never happen.
You just said that women being equal or *seen* as equal was 'never gonna happen' .. soo -- according to You, it is necessary.Women have equal rights in this country. The first and second wave of feminism made sense and was needed. Third wave is pointless, unless you live in the Middle East.
So as a woman, you feel that everything is equal in the workplace? (If you arent a woman then your perception is not going to be the same). You mention maternity leave, but not all women take it because they already have kids or they don't want any.No I said that about humans getting along. Yes women have equal rights
I'm a dude.So as a woman, you feel that everything is equal in the workplace? (If you arent a woman then your perception is not going to be the same). You mention maternity leave, but not all women take it because they already have kids or they don't want any.
But let's clarify what you mean when you say feminism-- oversight in the workplace (corporate level), in the government?
I tend to agree. I think it is another bandwagon that people join in order to give them a sense of belonging to a community. I remember when the women were protesting Trump. Some of the girls I went to school with were some of the most privileged people I have ever seen in my life. They had bachelors degrees, owned their own businesses, were living the life that early protestors for women's right described. Yet, they still were parroting the idea that women suffered some sort of systemic oppression. I just couldn't understand it.Women, you have equal rights to men in the 1st world. Why is it needed?
It is NOT needed. Feminism today is useless. Feminism used to mean equal rights, for both men and women. They have that. It is not needed. Yes sexism and racism will always exist. Its not gonna change with some movement.Ok so you realize why feminism is needed and will not go away.
