Ethics of care, maternal thinking and morality are all very important aspects that should be involved in all aspects of society, but most of all today’s gendered workforce. Both men and women should receive equal rights and same treatment in the workplace, from equal opportunity to equal pay. Ethics of care, maternal thinking and morality should be applied in full when developing fairness in the workforce because of the great points it brings up about our flaws in societal development. The unfairness our society has created with jobs is expressed in both of these ways of thinking as well as displaying resolutions to these issues.
“Women are moral equals of men…the experiences of women deserve our respect and are vital to a full and accurate understanding of morality” (CRP 194). The author of these ethics is trying to show how women need to be equal to men in society. Both men and women have something to offer in different ways. By ignoring attributes women could bring to the workplace, there are some things that might not be understood or accomplished. Women provide a cooperative, flexibility, openness, and so many other emotions, and characteristics that men don’t possess which is essential to achieve all possible success in the workforce.

This author also provides the point that women have more to offer, in situations that men cannot possess. Women pride on responsibility, taking on the “demands” of social groups to be maternal and do maternal things. This shows that mothers have this ability to be flexible and able to meet the demands imposed on them making them just as capable as men to do a job. Without the presence of women, society may lack or not even progress in areas because women could possess traits that in turn would be the “missing link”. Mothers Movement mentioned, that “in the workplace, we depend on women to infuse the competitive business model with the values of connection and cooperation” (The Mothers Movement Online). This aspect also supports the idea that a woman’s input is essential for smooth rhythm in the work industry, even if male dominated.
Although not all jobs would require men and women, it is still essential to have balance in society. Like the author from Mothers Movement mentioned, women incorporate cooperation while warming up the cold edges on modern life. This could be a great help when you have a very male-driven job and all the ideals were becoming the same; having some womanly insight could just be enough change to make new ideas spark. Although this is not supporting equal opportunity, it would not eliminate the presence of men and...
