Periods 1 & 2, Post 6: "A Man's World"?

Okay, so James Brown's song says that "it's a man's world," something Miss Maudie alludes to when talking to Scout about prejudice against women. Do you think that men still rule the world? How are women and men now equal educationally, socially, and financially? How are they still unequal in today's society? Your comments will count as a homework assignment for the second marking period.

    Well as we can see that we are not fully equal still so it doesnt really matter. But its better than before. Before it seemed as so that woman and education was NO form of mix but today EVERYONE get's a education. Whether your a female or male .

  2. In my point of view i do not think man still rule this world. I consider that men and woman are equal. In education men and women are equal because we would learn the same thing it just depend which sex take there education seriously. In social life we both would communicate the same, this also depends on braveness and courage. In today society men and women are unequal still because some people think that men could do everything better then women. which is not true. Women could do the same exact thing that men do. Probably even better.

  3. Well this new society is not like before. Now men and women shared most of the same rights. Even tho there's more jobs for men because suppously we are stronger than women. That's not true some women can be as strong as men.In my perspective men don't still rule the world. In my point of view men and women should be threated equal. Women are as important as men.

  4. In my eyes i think that men still rule the world. Women and men are equal educationally because they all get thought the same type of education unlike the past how only men were able to be educated, are treated the same socially because men talk to women wihtout a problem or complaning that they are a female. They are unequal because males may have a better job than a female because the boss of the place is a male and may not want a female worker.

  5. Both Men and Women Are equal in the world . Educationally they are equal , it all depends on how much effort you are willing to put in . A lot of the time , women stay in school longer and strive for a better education than a male does . Socially , they both now choose who they want and don't want to be involved with . Financially it all depends on the type of job you have . They are still equal because a lot of the things still this day are very sexist .

    In the pasted, men ranked highed in almost anything then women. Now that some time has past, men and women are somewhat equal in schools but still girls have to work harder to get what they want. In the world women and men are both socially equal, but most women knows what they want and how to get it. In the workforce, men get rasies faster and easier then women.
