Recently, there has been much debate between the sexes about a plethora of topics. There is a large wave of feminism, or even a new age of feminism. Women, over the centuries have progressed in areas such as technology, business, government, education, math and science – positions that were once limited to women. As they were discriminated against and spoken for by men, they have to proved themselves as great, and others wrong. This was done gracefully.
Having proven themselves to society as dynamic and intelligent beings, there still remains a fight. On one hand, the battle is very progressive; on the other hand it has steered so much chaos and controversy that relationships between men and women are becoming very acerbic. Since many roles have been taken on by women and they are becoming more independent, support has been undermined from men.
Though the sexes are different not only in gender, but in character as well, they both have dynamic qualities. For instance, women are considered to be more nurturing and caring while men are thought to be sterner. However, they also have similarities such as both can be understanding; hence recognizing and appreciating the quality of both of the sexes should be embraced. There should not have to be such a battle.
If discrimination continues against women, then the fighting continues. If there is too much debate between the two, then harmonious relationships between men and women will cease, which will stifle the progress of the sexes together. Now is a perfect time to embrace and enhance gender equality.
