Stereotypes: Do men have it easier?

[Add New]

Pro

  • Women are usually expected to look after children and household, whereas men are not. Worse still, should a woman be reluctant to give up her career, she is then regarded an irresponsible mother.





[Add New]

Con

  • Men are generally expected to earn a living for their family. Should a man earn less than his wife, it can be seen as his "personal failure".

Discrimination: Are women generally more often discriminated against?

[Add New]

Pro

  • Discrimination at workplace. Women, even in the 21st century, face discrimination at work for one simple reason: They are viewed as future (potential) mothers, who are likely to take maternity leave. Therefore, the companies are reluctant to hire and subsequently promote women, which clearly is discrimination. (Regrettably, the fact that there are alternatives to maternity leave such as paternity leave, nannies, or not having children at all is widely overlooked).
