James Donald Okin Presentation "Given the emphasis our society places on economic success, belief in the male provider role strongly reinforces the domination of men within marriage. Although, as we shall see, many wives actually work long hours (counting paid and unpaid work) than their husbands, the fact that a husband's work is predominantly paid gives him not only status and prestige, both within and outside the marriage, but also a greater sense of entitlement" (pg.141). Finally!! Women ARE Smarter Okin's Theory Continued... “The typical route for women is still to finish their education with high school and marry and have children in their early twenties” (p. 144).

Although dated, it can still be argued that women may still feel forced to choose between having a family or having a career. Comparing the Theory Continued...
-"Nozick condemns states that redistribute resources" pg.79
- Okin disagrees with this statement
-She would argue for a law that forces companies public or private to pay employees based on how qualified they are and would not allow them to discriminate based on their gender.
-60-83 cents on the dollar when the book was written
- Now 77 cents on the dollar, 23 years later Wage Gap "...their tendency to work part-time and at jobs that in other respects bend to meet the needs of the family... women's wages become lower in relation to men's as they get older. Whereas the ratio between an average full-time working woman's earnings and full-time working man's is 83:100 between the ages of twenty-one to twenty-nine, the wage gap by ages forty-five to sixty-four has increased to 60:100." pg.55 Wage Gap Continued... "The gap between the median wage for a man and that of a woman in 2010 was a whopping $10,784 per year. That is enough money for the average woman to fund a year of higher education and a full year of health care costs, while still having more than $2,400 to contribute toward her retirement." (Glynn)

"Even when controlling for occupation, experience, race, and union membership, 41 percent of the wage gap cannot be explained through measurable factors, indicating that part of the discrepancy is due to gender-based discrimination." (Glynn) Okin's Theory of Vulnerability by Marriage “They are rendered vulnerable by the actual division of labor within almost all current marriages. They are disadvantaged at work by the fact that the world of wage work, including the professions, is still largely structured around the assumption that ‘workers’ have wives at home. They become far more vulnerable if they become the primary caretakers of children, and their vulnerability peaks if their marriages dissolve and they become single parents.” pg.139 Okin's Theory Continued Okin's Theory Continued... "Given the emphasis our society places on economic success, belief in the male provider role strongly reinforces the domination of men within marriage. Although, as we shall see, many wives actually work long hours (counting paid and unpaid work) than their husbands, the fact that a husband's work is predominantly paid gives him not only status and prestige, both within and outside the marriage, but also a greater sense of entitlement" (pg.141). Comparing Okin's Theory to the Wage Gap -Gender inequality at home will cause gender inequality in the workforce.
-May be equal entering marriage, but when children enter the situation the female becomes more dependent and usually loses experience they could have gained in the workforce.
-Men need to take more responsibilities

2. Although there has been significant backlash against the court’s narrow 5-4 decision, one of the majority Justices, Antonin Scalia, stated one particularly strong reason for his decision was that, “ the case involved “literally millions of employment decisions.” Walmart Women Vs.
