I generally avoid making points about gender equality/inequality, because the first reaction people have is ''omg dood that's prejudice yada yada'' and then they gang up to make the person look like a jerk.
Anyways, I'll make my considerations.
- The bolded have their rights, and if they aren't receiving money, that's probably their fault.1. This article is in many ways defending "dead-beat" dads, but it is worth noting that "62% of custodial mothers do not receive child support. However, of that number, three-fourths of them simply do not want child support, have not asked for it, have accepted other financial arrangements instead of child support, or the father does not have the money. " http://deltabravo.net/cms/plugins/co...hp?content.282
- There are also women who become millionaires when they have children with the right guy.
I don't know how many of them are reporting those men to the authorities, much less the result of the delations, so I can't elaborate.2. This article states that "Men perpetrate the majority of violent acts against women (DeLahunta 1997)." http://www.feminist.com/antiviolence/facts.html
I think some people have the impression that employers out there select women and men for the same job and pay 755 dollars for the women and 1000 dollars for the men.3. This article states that "The workplace pay gap between men and women, once thought to be narrowing, has only been getting worse, according to an analysis of recently released census data conducted by the Institute for Women’s Policy Research. Women make only 75.5 cents for every dollar that men earn, according to a new release by the U.S. Census Bureau." http://usgovinfo.about.com/od/census...aygapgrows.htm
I think a big reason why that income inequality happens is because women, on average, spend much more time raising kids and end up not having as much time to dedicate to their careers. But they usually have their husbands to back up them financially (which is reasonable and expected). Otoh, I'll concede that some people, especially elders, still don't think women are as capable as men for high positions. But that's changing quickly, I believe.
Nah, it's fine that way.And if what you say refers to Brazil in particular, then preface your statement to indicate this.
