There is no doubt gender prejudice exists in the world, oh yes it is a world wide problem and some countries being worse than others .That is fact. Is there change going on, to my mind yes things are improving, peoples prejudices are being challenged and women are making strides. Definitely high powered jobs have been the monopoly of men. Partly by design but also partly I think by sheer laziness on both sides.

A man’s life is relatively easy, in as much as he can get up and go so progress can be incoprated into that dynamic system easily. In the case of a woman because she has other extremely important roles like child bearing getting up and going is not that easy. A common example is when a child is created without intention, the man disappears but the woman can’t and when she throws the baby  away after birth it’s calamity because a whole life is in danger. When she keeps the baby that is alife time responsibility.

So the first thing women need to recognise is that they have the biggest responsiblities in aspects of life without which there would be no world.This makes them very important contributors to human nature. Where I am not sure is, are women aware of this extremely important, almost irrepalacble position they occupy in this world?

In the working world having children for example, is almost ridiculed. I have sat on job panels and this is the sort of comment one hears ” she is brilliant but very soon she will get married and she will start having babies” So a lesser able candidate gets the job.

Two things I feel need to be added to this debate, women should recognise that they are not inferior in any way to men. They are different, sure I will be the first to admit women and men are different but that is what nature intended, because we are meant to compliment each other. This does not make the woman inferior.

The ommision has been that while things have evolved around a man’s life , this evolution has not taken into account the woman’s complicated roles. This is where the change really needs to happen so for example in my example above instaed of giving up on an excellent candidate because she is young and she will get pregnant, we need to organise our jobs so that they accommodate this variation in roles we need to occupy in our lives.

One bigger handicapp is that the denigradation has been going on for a very long time and this has left women thingking they are somehow inferior so one sometimes hears women give each other advice to the effct that you accept this or else you will not get very far. While I can see this almost defeatist attitude ( beaten down into submission) I do think it is something women need to change. The commomenta form of this is when you hear women complaining that they are being discriminated aginst and they feel this is unfair, there is nothing wrong with vocalising this but an even more fcetive way is  to acquire self confidence, train one very well, and when you get the job do it very well indeed. It does not take long before they start looking at you as the chief excutive instead of Mrs so so and so.

Whats my message: it is simply this, women stop being your own worst enemies, take your posts with pride , prove that you are capable and the world will have no choice but respect you. Please support each other, do not be the first to run each other down as seems to be the case quite often. I am sure if we do this our role in society will get to the level we want it to be. Do not accept being seconda class because you are not.
