Today’s corporate understands only two genders that are widespread and are spoken about. There have been few spearheads who fought for gender equality within the office spaces, but within the binary of M & F, again. The ignition happened in the late 60s where women realised that they are suppressed and they rose. They rose to a level in say, 30 years and they are here in all the offices and they are almost professionals in all the walk of life today. But, the million dollar question here is that, Do we really understand what “Equal representation” means? Do we really understand what is “male privilege”? Do we introspect on what it takes to be a women in this regressive society?
Women have always been treated differently in all the industries irrespective of how educated/successful they are. A woman will be treated as “incapable” in front of a male competitor just because she is a woman. A woman in the office will have to stay put to all the sexists jokes that are passed on her, A professional women’s achievements will always be credited to how “good looking” she is, who she socializes with and how she “respects” her male colleagues.
Various forms of oppression, such as racism or sexism, do not act independently of one another; instead these forms of oppression are interrelated, forming a system of oppression that reflects the “intersection” of multiple forms of discrimination. In light of this theory, the oppression and marginalization of women is thus shaped not only by gender, but by other factors such as race and class.
Is it any wonder that so many high-achieving young women, despite all the happy talk about their academic success, find themselves in the early stages of their careers in chronic uncertainty or anxiety about their prospects for an emotionally fulfilled private life? When an educated culture routinely denigrates masculinity and manhood, then women will be perpetually stuck with boys, who have no incentive to mature or to honor their commitments. And without strong men as models to either embrace to resist, women will never attain a centered and profound sense of themselves as women.
To get rid of all such regression on women especially, We need strong policies supporting women to come up in the academia and bring them up in the professional careers. Women are struggling to hop on to a bus everyday. Working mothers are leaving their children alone at home and going through a lot of trauma in their personal life. To conclude, Women are not men. But, it takes a lot to be a woman in the society than a man. Respect women and know their struggles. Every office space needs Feminism. And women are also to change not to accept the patriarchy, no debate on that.
