Women Are Creature Of The God

882 words - 4 pages

Are women the men’s slaves? Not at all! In the past, women were treated like men’s slaves. Throughout the world, women were expected to be like property of men. If look at the history of the world, mostly women had been deprived from their righteous rights and employment opportunities while men were enjoyed superiorities. Men considered women’s most important business housewife to cook, clean and raise children. After long struggle, women in the majority of countries, “won the right to vote and increased their educational and job opportunities. Possibly most important, they fought for and to a large degree accomplished a reevaluation of traditional views of their role in society,” (women’s international center, 1994, p 1).

For instance, “in most preindustrial societies, domestic chores were relegated to women, leaving heavier labor such as hunting and plowing to men. This ignored the fact that caring for children and doing such task as milking cows and washing clothes also required heavy, sustained labor. But physiological tests now suggest that women have a greater tolerance for pain, and statistic reveal that women live longer and are more resistant to many diseases,” (women’s international center, 1994, p 1). Although women in many circumstances proved themselves that they can perform any work like their men counterparts, for example, in WWII while men headed to front line, women filled men positions in the factories, worked overtime diligently in a hope to win the war, but still physically discriminated by men.
