Women are equal to men speech.
I think we have all had a brain wash. We think women don't mind not getting paid the same amount of pay as men, or the derogatory female stereotypes and the push backs. But we do mind.
So say I was strolling through the mall and and I was going to Kmart and I am so excited because I'm a girl so I really like shopping, I'm walking into Kmart and I need new underwear, all I want is a plain pair of white undies and guess what there is none there's pink and purple ones or frilly ones but no plain ones. It's so unfair men and boys have plain ones, for ballet I don't want people seeing my undies through my ballet tight and also it's not like my friends are going to ask what undies I'm wearing. Why can't girls and women have plain undies.
Are girls related to cats because I'm beginning to think that lots of people are thinking that because generally if girls have a fight it's called a cat fight because apparently we are always
catty if we have a fight but boys just called fights. And also it's not like we have the same amount as Hair as cats. Plus people think boys are better because boys don't fight as much, but for a matter of fact they do.
So if I travelled back in time about 120 years My mum would probably stay at home and look after the house, look after the children and wish she could have a say in the vote, at that time women in New Zealand and all around the world women couldn't vote because men thought that women were only good at housemaid jobs and looking after children and weren't fit for the rough and tumble of politics. Finally in 1891 a woman called Kate Shepherd stepped up and lead a petition. In 1891 she gathered 9000 signatures and in 1892 20,000 signatures were gathered and finally in 1893 they got 32,000 signatures that's almost a quarter of the women population of New Zealand.
A form of inequality is that some women don't get paid the same amount as men just because they are not men which is not a good enough excuse because they just look different and they work as hard and maybe harder than other men. For example statistical research shows that women in New Zealand are likely to earn 11% less than men.
A form of disrespect is that men are scared of what women might do, so they discourage them to go for strong and public jobs, so women back out. But some women don't back out like the president candidate Hillary Clinton. She would be the first women president of America but a lot of men don't like her because she is a woman.
Women and girls have been stereotyped for centuries starting with when we had to walk on a particular side of the road because we couldn’t handle getting sprayed with dirt or mud from passing horses on the road, through to getting stereotyped that we are only good at house jobs like buying groceries or looking after a family, through to now we have the ‘Bic pen company’ releasing a new pen line called ‘bic for her’ which has created a stereotype that girls and women are too delicate for other pens and only like ‘her’ colours pink and purple.
A World War Two hero Nancy Wake believed that if you were a women you could do anything and you don't have to have a family or have to travel with a chaperone. In conclusion we need to all help make this world a fair and happy place for all genders, so girls and women it's time to be brave, keep running ‘like a girl’, keep throwing ‘like a girl’, squash those stereotypes. Let’s hear your voice because your opinions do matter.
