All over the world men are superior. Whether it’s in the United States or overseas. In the U.S. sexism isn’t ad bad as it is on other places, but it definitely still exists. Our society is constantly putting different sports, jobs, hobbies, etc. into categories of what is for women and what is for men. Sports like football, rugby, basketball…etc. Men think that they are the only ones who can only play those types of sports to a certain athletic level. They do not think that women can’t play them all together, but they definitely do think that they can’t play as well as men would. Which are cases of showing sexism. Women although are slowly proving that they can do these things, but I believe that our society will always feel this way about the situation and continue to proclaim that, even if it isn’t true.
In other countries, sexism has become a really big deal. Women are told that their purpose in life is to serve. Basically, they are told to stay home, clean, cook, take care of the children, do all the house chores, yard chores, etc. Women are not aloud to have jobs or pursue the life that they want to live. Women are considered property. The men are the ones who are aloud to have jobs, live the life that they want to live, dress the way that they want to, and pursue anything. Even when men and women are married, the man will not treat his wife in a respectable manner. They think that they are worth more and should be served by their wife all the time.
Women are still being treated this way to this day if we believe it or not. Sometimes we think that slavery is gone, sexism is gone, racism is gone, etc. but in reality it is all still there. Whether we can see it or not, it’s their and is getting worse as time goes on.
