Throughout history, we all know that women always got the shorter end of the stick. Jobs, income, voting, and so much more. However, as women in 2019, we can’t dwell on the old. We need to focus on how we can conquer the new.

I mean, so far, women have been conquering the new so far. Women have been thriving in jobs and income lately.  For instance, according to a study by Harvard Business School, 23 percent of mothers’ daughters got paid more than them when they were working at their age. That’s pretty amazing. Another interesting finding was that according to a catalyst article titled Report: The Bottom Line: Connecting Corporate Performance and Gender Diversity,” stated, Companies with the highest representation of women on their top management teams experienced better financial performance than companies with the lowest womens representation.Not only does this demonstrate how women are more than capable of making an impact in our world but how companies are realizing this.

 Personally, I feel that society has come a long way from where we started. Even though not all women have equality in this country, we can’t deny that there was improvement. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t do better. Personally, I feel if more women participate in the women’s movement, whether it is standing up for a female employee at work or just standing up for women in general, and bringing awareness to the powerful women in society, there will be an even brighter future for America and American women.

  1. I completely agree with this argument.
    I really liked how you don’t want to worry about the past but we should worry about the future. Woman yes were treated badly in the past but we should convince people now of all genders to give everyone the equality they deserve.

  2. Funny how only the two Winter twins have replied so far.

    I 100% agree with this. Women definitely need even more recognition than they already have. Take Hedi Lamar, Marie Curie and Lise Mietner for example. They’re all absolute GENIUSES, and were, but not very much, recognized for their skills.

    Lise received a posthumous award, which really only made me laugh darkly about it, because the male gender back then couldn’t grasp the fact that females are just as capable of amazing things as men are.

    Marie literally gave her life for science. Not to mention she knew Albert Einstein. My dad sent me a photograph he found online of them together chatting at a beach.

    Hedi was AMAZING. She not only was a scientist, but an actress as well, and —get this— she was the one who came up with the shape of airplanes. Originally, they were more boxy, because that’s all men can come up with, but she saw birds and fish and how easily they swam/ flew through the water/air and thought, ‘hey, we should imitate that to make airplanes for aerodynamic.’ Look it up, “who came up with the shape of airplanes?” Hedi Lamar will come up.
