Over time, society has put so many things into females heads to make them feel as if they  are not good enough, plus make them think that what they do is to be criticized. In my opinion,

people don’t notice the everyday struggles when it comes to being a female. There are multiple issues in society such as stereotypes of supposed “woman”  characteristics, ignorance, racism, conflict in the workplace, body objectification etc. I want people to open up their eyes and take notice of female’s struggles today.

Firstly, I would like to talk about how a lot of things that females do invite criticism. Things such as sports, their motivation, and money. Many people believe that females can’t do as much as men, even when it comes to doing the same task. Woman should not be compared or even thought less of than men. This issue goes way back all the way to The Women’s Rights Movement in 1848. Women and girls worldwide formed the basis for the movement in the nineteenth century and feminist movement during the 20th century. In some countries, these rights are institutionalized or supported by law, whereas in others they are ignored. Some rights include: being able to vote, to hold public office, and to enter into legal contracts.

Although the history of women rights have helped, females are still experiencing these issues in 2018. Studies have shown that men are twice as likely to be hired as women and are considered to be more skilled. Even when women reach advanced positions, they are still paid less than men in the same positions. As for students, according to the article “5 Issues Women Still Face in 2018, by Ashleen Knutsen, “The U.S. student debt crisis has been compared to the 2010 mortgage crisis. On average, women collect $1,500 more student debt than men after completing a bachelor’s degree.” They both do the same task but just because it is a woman trying the result is different I don’t believe that’s okay, no woman should have to go through something more just because of the fact that she is a woman. This is just some of the few reasons why I believe that it is hard to be a woman in modern society today.

Lastly, I would like to talk about the little things that women go through on a daily basis that I don’t think people understand are a struggle. It’s the little things to me that matter a lot when it come to this topic and it’s a lot to go through: men who control women, abuse, those things make me feel like nobody understands, but these my are few of my reasons on why I believe that people don’t seem to notice the struggle of what a woman goes through. I hope this opened your eyes.
