Female Discrimination in the Labor Force

Female Discrimination in the Labor Force In the past decades there has been a dramatic increase in the number of women participating in the labor force. This expansion has unfortunately shown how women are still being treated as inferior citizens when comparing their wages and the jobs they are hired for to that of men.

We can also look at some of the historical attitudes from which today\'s beliefs and stereotypes have evolved. However, we must look beyond bo

Women and The Bible The Bible and the church have been the greatest stumbling blocks in the way of woman\'s emancipation. A famous 19th century feminist named Elizabeth Cady Stanton voiced this about her struggle for women\'s freedom. Women, considered a lower class than the men, wanted this subjugation changed. Part of the reason for the subjugation of women is that the Bible could be interpreted in many different ways to suit the needs of the interpreter. These interpretations of the Bible are

The Webster’s Dictionary defines a coquette as a woman who flirts. One of the reasons why ‘she’ appears so frequently in these essays is because these men sense a danger in them.

Other churches which interpret the Bible more literally have been slow to adopt such changes. Much of the
