Women in the Modern World

Women are playing an increasingly important part in society today. In many countries, more and more women are acting as workers , farmers, scientists, and even leaders. We can say that almost all jobs which men can do are done successfully by women. Women are no longer looked down upon by society.

With the changes in their social role, women's position in family has been improved as well. Husband and wife are now equal in the family. They deal with problems of daily life together , and share happiness with each other. In today's families , women are not usually the ones busy with dinners. In spite of these changes , the liberation of women has not been completely realized. A number of men are

self-centered , who regard women as incapable. Few women are allowed to attend important international meetings dominated by men. That's really the problem we should solve immediately. Job Discrimination Against Women Graduates

Nearly 70 percent of Chinese women college graduates face sexual discrimination while job-hunting, according to a new survey.

The survey was conducted by the Southwest University of Political Science and Law. The university's website said the survey involved "several hundred" women.

Xiao Jian, one of the respondents, said many employers ask only for male applicants in advertisements while others, who don't advertise a gender preference, refuse to interview female applicants in reality. Employers prefer male to female staff as they think women will demand paid maternity leave and are unable to stand regular overtime work and frequent business trips, the survey found. Most respondents chose to tolerate the discrimination, according to the survey. 内容来自go121.cn "When turned down by one employer we just try another. It's a waste of time arguing with employers about the discrimination," Xiao Jian said. She observed that even when employers reluctantly gave them jobs they faced poor prospects in the companies. 英语作文,英语范文

Li Chunru, vice president of the university, said government should establish a comprehensive social security system to solve the problem such as covering the cost of maternity leave.

Statistics from education authorities show the proportion of females in the college system had increased from 38.31 percent in 1998 to 43.95 percent by the end of 2005. go121.cn
