Transcript of Gender Equality

Gender Equality According to the Collins Spanish Dictionary (2005), the word equal means identical in size and value. Abigail Adams became the person of advice for the President because of her intelligence and opinion, especially for women’s rights (Abigail Smith Adams, 2001). The American Example "History AND herstory" President Kennedy formed the President’s Commission on the Status of Women in 1961 with former first lady Eleanor Roosevelt as chair, Commission passed the Equal Pay Act of 1963 which requires employers to pay men and women the same pay (Rich and Walker, 2009). Today women should take the advantage of having the opportunity to express themselves and fight for equal rights (Lee, 2009). Intelligence On global IQ scores, men generally score higher than women, but on specific areas such as verbal memory, women do score higher (Intelligent Tests, 2007). Although men are intellectually smarter than women, more women have educated themselves and received a third more M.B.A’s than men (Gilgoff, 2009). Discrimination According to the Department of Labor, women are paid about 81 cents for every $1 earned by men (Lee & Wagner, 2009). Women are twice as likely to leave a job in order to be the caretaker of her family (Jacobs & Finley, 2009). Walmart v. Dukes Over 2 million women filed sex discrimination as a whole.
"I had a co-worker who was a maintenance supervisor - she's a female. Every male that came into that Walmart to work, they came in making the same amount that it took her 10 years to get to," Sandra Carpenter said.
