Geronga 1Alvie A. GerongaCOMM170-311Professor Emily DonvilleJuly 24, 2009Negative Effects of the Increased Rights for Women in CanadaWhy this difference between men and women? When natural selection shaped male-female differences, it didn't stop at muscles and naughty bits. It also shaped differences in our psychologies. Evolution made men's and women's minds as unalike as it made their bodies. Why? Think of it this way. Give a man 50 wives and he could have children galore. But a woman with 50 husbands? Huh! (Cronin, p. 191)Helena Cronin (2007) is right that men and women are created differently, but both sexes must be fully respected and be treated equally. Brave women who fought for equal rights deserve a gold throne for their heroic acts. Nowadays, women enjoy equal opportunities in professional training and education, political representation, healthcare, childcare and working conditions. Women now proudly say anything is possible! However, given freedom and rights, humans by nature tend to overuse them. Slowly, the increased rights for women in Canada in recent years have affected marriages, children, and society badly.Women with demanding job affect marriages.

Ian Brown again turned his time going to strip bars because of his wife's absence (p. 315). Ian's wife is an example of a busy woman. She is most of the time away from home that must not happen in a married life. To stay in good marriage, couple must spend quality time nurturing the relationship on a day-to-day basis. In addition, women coming home from an exhausting job do not have time or do not have the urge for sex, which is one of the spices of a good marriage. Men by nature need sex more than women. As a result, adultery happens when wives are not around especially in times of men's natural needs. Adultery is one of the reasons of a bad marriage or divorce. The book "Divorce: Causes and Consequences" (Stewart & Brentano, 2006) says that Women's Movement was one of the contributor to the increase of divorce rate from the 1960s through the 1980's because they encourage women to be more assertive and...
