Yes, in many areas. For example, look at how little attention and money women's sport receives compared with mens' sport. Mens' sport isn't even called "mens' sport" it's just called "sport". Male is the default. Look at the sexist abuse faced by cricketer Ellyse Perry.
"In November 2012, the gender pay gap stood at 17.6%. The average weekly ordinary time earnings of women working full-time were $1,227.50 per week, or $261.60 per week less than men, who earned an average weekly wage of $1,489.10 per week. "
Here's something a bit more recent, which mentions Equal Pay Day, which symbolically marks the day each year at which women have earned as much as men did in the previous financial year ending in July. This year it's September 3rd.
Absolutely they are. In Australia and globally. There is still a gender pay gap and women regularly get passed up for roles in preference to men. There are still a real shortage of women in top leadership positions in many companies and sexism prevails in many workplaces. I am a HR Manager and have previously conducted a number of Equal Pay audits....the results have never failed to show the discrimination that takes place.
In 2014 you would think it would be a level-playing ground, but not so.
It's a man's world, to be very Blunt.
It always has been.
Will we ever see a female President even in the White House?
We have only 'just' seen a female Prime Minister.
So the world has a long lway to go.
Even though there are more women on this Planet,then men.
Men seem to have that major vote.
Yes.That is a sad truth.They have been, they are still being and I wish and hope that they wont be in future.And I think only young mothers can make that happen by teaching their children to respect women and any human being for that matter.
Sadly again mothers spend more time in a family situation with the kids .And tht is a another completely different question .also from a mothers perspective the importance and respect a women deserves can be explained with empathy.
End of the day,mother or father doesn't matter . The main point is the teaching that needs to be done .
It's not an either/or thing. It needs to be both. A man who treats his childrens' mother with respect is teaching his children to respect women. If he doesn't their mother is going to have an uphill battle to cancel out his bad example.
Discrimination occurs less now in the majority of examples, but it still happens, including to women, and white heterosexual men are discriminated against more than THEY used to be because it is sometimes masked under the guise of "afirmative action". Two wrongs don't make a right.
Discrimination is not completely quantitatively measurable and therefore there will always be a degree of subjectivity surrounding this question. There will therefore also always be arguments that discrimination is occurring to this person/group or that person/group, because it depends on each person's perceptions and values/philosophies. But we can do our best to limit it according the majority/collective view/standard, which will inevitably vary from time to time.
Yes, in many ways! And it will be a long time before it's rectified.
I think it's hilarious in the fact that it's the WOMEN who bring forth the next generation. If it wasn't for women, these prats of men wouldn't even be here!
