The Oppressed Women
Date : - 26/12/2007
Low literacy of women in the world
Over 110 million of the world's children, two thirds of them girls, are not in school. Of the world's 875 million illiterate adults, two thirds are women. Two thirds of the world's children who receive less than four years of education are girls. Worldwide, more than half the population of women over age 15 years cannot read or write. Girls represent nearly 60% of the children not in school
Women status and employment
90% of the rural female labour force are called housewives and excluded from the formal definition of economic activity. Women work on average and across the world more hours than men each week, sometimes as much as 35 hours or more, but their work is often unpaid and unaccounted for. Where women do the same work as men, they are paid 30 to 40 per cent less than men. There is no country in the world where women's wages are equal to those of men. In the UK, Italy, Germany and France, women are paid 75% of men's wages, whereas in Vietnam, Sri Lanka, Tanzania and Australia, women earn 90% of men's wages. Women produce nearly 80% of the food on the planet, but receive less than 10% of agricultural assistance. In many parts of the world, work is segregated by sex. Women tend to be in clerical, sales and domestic services and men in manufacturing and transport. Women occupy only 2% of senior management positions in business. Women's participation in managerial and administrative posts is around 33% in the developed world, 15% in Africa and 13% in Asia and the Pacific.
In spite of rapid strides having been made the world over for liberation of women, women continue to be oppressed. However, the women of today are not the same as they were decades ago. All sorts of avenues have been thrown open for women. Women are today everywhere occupying high positions in society, politics, judiciary, police, armed forces, factories, teaching, research, etc
Yet it is also obvious that women are still far from equal. For the majority of women, the right to choose the way of life they wish to lead is as limited as it has always been. Rather than being liberated, women are still tied by virtue of their poor wage earning abilities to the home and family. The average hourly earnings of women are still 68% of those of men. Men more per hour than women do.
Some of the positions women occupy today are as follows:
Clerical worker
Nursing aide
Sales worker
Factory worker
Child care
We have very few judges among women, on boards of banks or key positions of the Government
In the past, women were oppressed because women kept themselves down. Therefore, the status quo stayed. Today, the situation has totally changed. Today women think positively and assert their rights and responsibilities.
For centuries, men and women have been struggling for women's liberation
In the past, a woman's place was in the home. They did not earn any money. They were dependent on the income earned by their husbands. Women are never paid for rearing a family. It is considered as an occupation to be a house wife
The family is a big trap for women today as it was in the past.
The scenario has totally changed today. It is believed that more women at top will make a real difference. Attitudes have changed considerably over the past few decades. Providing equal opportunities to women is today an issue. The mass media and newspapers have considered championed the cause of women.
