Strove For Equality
As the Equal Rights Amendment states, equality is for everyone, regardless of sex. Gender has been a key factor in determining women’s status in society for centuries. These challenges began when women were young. They were taught early that women were only suitable for domestic duties, including motherhood. Even their careers were often subject to compromises to allow for a balanced family life. Today, gender equality is at the heart of equality of opportunity.
A partnership that is equal
Despite the rhetoric of equal partnership, few marriages actually reflect that ideal. Women traditionally do far more household tasks and child care than men do, spending two or three times as much time at home as their husbands do. Men have traditionally had more influence and decision-making power than women. Women can improve their marriages by working to ensure that their husbands have equal say in decision-making and the housework.
Putting men’s careers first
Women have long fought for equal representation. However, men have had a harder time gaining access to the top jobs and opportunities. Despite the recent surge in gender inequality, women still face barriers and are underrepresented in many industries. The Time’s Up and Me Too movements have revealed biases and inequalities in the workplace, and the COVID-19 pandemic has forced women into traditional roles.
Tony Blair opposes a top rate of 50% income tax
The last two weeks in August saw one of the most significant changes in British politics ever since the 1997 general elections. Tony Blair was busy making preparations for the largest wealth redistribution in Britain since 1945, with all the MPs on overseas trips. The Labour Party, which he leads, has been laying the foundations for this audacious tax grab.
Wilma Rudolph’s fight to equality
Track and field star Wilma Rudolph had a long and successful career. Although she was a victim of polio as a child, she fought against the disease and won three gold medals in the 1956 Summer Olympics. She would go on win three more golds medals at the 1960 Summer Olympics, Rome. She became a household name and was nicknamed “Black Tornado,” The Flash, and “Black Gazelle” due to her speed and agility.
The black race as an example of a fight for equality
The black race has often been used as a paradigm for a fight for equality. Booker T. Washington, a reformer and educator, is a powerful example of this philosophy. He preached self-help, racial unity, and accommodation. In his teachings, he urged black people to live in peace with their oppression and to work hard to improve their lot in life. Washington also believed that black people should be educated in crafts and develop their patience, enterprise, and virtues to help them become better people.
The new equality commission
Prof. Neta Ziv is the leader of the new equality committee. She will expand the recent programs implemented by existing units and increase the number of women and Arabs on the academic faculty. The EHRC will strive to ensure that everyone has the same rights and opportunities. The new commission will also be focused on preventing discrimination based upon religion, age, and sexual orientation. All of these aspects are important and need to be addressed in the new law.
