Have attitudes toward working women changed?
Nowadays, the number of working women has been increasing rapidly. Some people insist that their position in their workplaces have not changed much because many men are still dominating the world. However, I believe that people’s attitudes toward working women have changed dramatically for the following reasons.
Firstly, many women are playing important roles in their companies. For example, one of my company’s executives is a woman. She manages the whole company as a top of legal affairs very well and many employees respect her. Therefore, our attitudes toward working women have changed in a positive way.
Secondly, many women have established new companies and they have a large influence on our society. To illustrate, there is an IT company called DeNA in Japan. Although it was established by a woman, the company is so famous that some of the biggest companies in Japan are craving to collaborate with DeNA. Thus, this proves that women can change the world as men can.
Finally, there are many political leaders all over the world who are women. For instance, both Germany and Britain have female prime ministers., and they have shown us their ability to manage such big countries. To be precise, PM Merkel is known for her actions with refugees. We can say that many people admire women’s leadership in the political world.
In conclusion, I think that people’s attitudes toward women who are working have changed dramatically in many perspectives. It is because many women are showing their capability to manage companies that used to be run by men, to build new companies, and to conduct the countries as a leader.
Nowadays, the number of working women has been increasing rapidly. Some people insist that people’s attitudes toward them have changed because there are changes in maternity leaves and jobs after marriage. However, as a man, I do not believe that these attitudes have changed much. The followings are my reasons why.
Firstly, men still dominate the business world. Although more women are taking higher positions in many companies, the number and their power are still limited. For example, one of my company’s executives is woman. She manages the whole company well, but the majority thinks she is the only woman who is fit for such a position. Therefore, many people do not think that women can operate companies as men.
Secondly, we can say that it was men who created all the companies known worldwide. On the contrary, there are few women who establish new companies. To illustrate, four of the biggest IT companies in the world, Google, Apple, Facebook, and Amazon, were all started by men. As a result, many people assume that men are better than women at establishing great companies.
Finally, the number of female politicians is quite small. For instance, United States and China, two of the strongest countries of the world, have never had women for president. Thus, many people still think that it is difficult for women to manage a country as a leader.
In conclusion, I think that people’s attitudes toward women working in various fields have not changed dramatically. That’s because only few women take higher positions in most companies, build new companies, and manage the countries as a leader. As long as men are overriding this number, it is difficult to change the worlds’ view drastically.
