Women are grossly underrepresented in the vast majority of global politics. Many laws are still rooted in patriarchy, even within the first world.
There are many limits or outright bans to women’s reproductive rights like abortion, which at times even grants rights to her rapist of their child. Majority of these governing bodies are men.
Gender roles also typically favor men. There are many jobs where men by far outnumber women and intimidation often diminishes whatever gains women have made particularly in STEM-related fields.
The most popular team sports are played by men despite a more proportionate fan base of women contributing their money to the male leagues.
Men tend to be well represented in all fields even in professions including where it’s jobs where women are the majority.
There’s been significant pushback against media franchises like Star Wars that are more inclusive, like those who complain about SJW from bigots and meninists alike.
Meanwhile the only time women’s hockey ever gets mainstream attention in the US is during the Olympics. Female bodybuilders and larger women are still pariahs of society, because women tend to only be allowed to be viewed in a specific shape.
We see males of all shapes and sizes in all different roles from comedic to serious. While skinny women can obtain the same range, women who don’t fit that mold are often regulated to novelties or specifically regulated to buffoon slapstick humor.
If women were allowed to do everything men could like hold their own national sports leagues, become equally encouraged to be in STEM fields especially engineering, would true equality exist in the future or would we see more of the same?
I was a plasterer, always hte only woman on site, got shedloads of shit from men, when working on large projects they would use my mixing bucket and leave it dirty and always walk away from me at any break times . An old man passing by when I was pointing a gable end, shouted at me that I was taking jobs of scousers and I ran down the ladder and chased him and made him apologise - There were too many instances to count sexism alive and kicking last time I looked ;
Yes it will be achieved and sooner than we expect. It is just so primal to believe women are less than man, The only people sucking this stuff are the religious ones and they are now under assault by the intelligence in the USA. The younger generation today is very well spoken and have the ability to change things. They do not see race as an issue, they do not recognize prejudice the way older people did. Women have played a huge roll in their lives , much more than before. Yes they will one day rise above the illiterate and find knowledge in our species
"Can true feminism ever be achieved" is a nonsensical question. One would suppose that the more appropriate query be something like, ‘Can true gender equality [or, if you prefer a more loaded term, ‘parity’] ever be achieved?’ Assuming, for the sake of this discussion, that your references to sports—which are merely a form of entertainment—are not central to the question, why should we picture a future with anything other gender equality? Gender equality goes way beyond entertainment (sports), and full equality (of opportunity and compensation) is the goal, after all, is it not?
I have no idea about sports and, frankly, do not care. Although a pay gap still exists and women make less money than do men, more women than men are getting college degrees. [theatlantic.com]
If this trend continues, the paradigm could shift and in the near future. On the other hand, with the present sexist, anti-woman administration, who knows?
I think i have had only small tasters such as a 'Reclaim the night march for women' and 'Boys rule not ok days' Laurieston hall in scotland had a womens week once which was a good time I remember sitting on a form with others and somebody handeed me a screen printed poster proclaiming 'Sisterhood is Powerful and as i took it the form collapsed and we all sprawled on to the floor
Maybe misandry is the answer? Just saying. iI's time to fight. If misogyny is acceptable, and controls our government, men should expect rageand consequences.
Oh, according to piece on 60 Minutes, cloning has made men irrelevant. Something to consider.
FEMINISM is the natural state of humanity much like bee hives and cooperative species societies....we humans nurture one another without mystification of FEMINIST source of life.... the first religion was a male telling a fake story about how pregnancy concludes or begins for that matter....FEMINISM will rise up and resume it's natural order of society when all people reject patriarchy, theocracy and greed for PEACE THROUGH GREEN JOBS
In my 81 year lifetime, I have seen huge advances in the reduction in gender bias and I predict that within the next 25 years we will see real gender equality in the culture of our country and in many advanced cultures. Those dominated by religion are and will continue to be a different story.
I’m not sure because women have to lead the way. Women’s sports is not a thing because women don’t support them. Soap operas stay on the air because of viewership the WNBA would be if they could get the viewers. Women outnumber men in the US yet women overwhelmingly vote for men. This is primarily because of gender roles Religious society has imposed on them. The most common Halloween costume for young girls is a princess. Social pressure has allowed to raise kids with predetermined gender roles. Men like sports, women like soaps. Women have to be the change they desire. I’ve seen too many women talk bad about women in politics. They talk about how they look or dress, as if that shit matters! Women have control if they stand together!
