Can Equality Come Overnight?

  Can Equality Come Overnight?

  Women seemed to be the least important creatures in the world in ancient times.  At that time the criterion whether a woman is good or not is obedience. A woman was to be obedient to her parents in her youth, to her husband once she got married and to her children in her old age.  At that time, women were subordinate to men, having no humanity at all, not to mention the so-called liberty or equality.

  As time goes by,  tremendous changes have happened to women's status, from women being permitted to receive education together with men to being able to go out to work in the society. Nowadays, such cases are ordinary that women compete with men,  work with men,  and even take the leadership.Wornen's status arrives at an unprecedented high level, which can be called as equality to some extent.

  However, the situation is not so optimistic as the majority of women think. In effect, women are far from equal to men.Actually, men's superiority is inveterate, which can't be shaken overnight. Though the society keeps on saying women should be treated equally as men, the idea that men are better than women still exerts a subtle influence on people's minds. When opening newspapers, how many "only men are eligible" are there in advertisements for employees? That is the reality.  People tend to value men, not women, at least subconsciously, men are superi

  I don't think the concept is based on science. It can't be denied that men take a dominant position in strength, logical thinking etc., but there are characteristic advantages women have anyhow, in which men fail to contend with them. Consequently,men are no better than women. Policewomen, women pilots,and women astronauts……, all these will prove the ability women own to the public. As a result, women get more and more aware of their own values. Despite its hardships and high costs, lots of them are trying their best to change the prejudice of the society.

  However, what I want to point out here is that not only men have the prejudice, but some women themselves do too. Eyen those who claim to long for equality with men have the double standard of equality. On one hand, they demand equal opportunity; on the other hand, they take "lady first" for granted,considering that it is perfectly justified for men to open door for them, offer their own seats to them, pay for dinner for them.Does it make sense? How can you ask others to treat you equally while you yourself have admitted the inequality in advance?

  In short, I think as long as our sense doesn't completely change, the real equality between men and women won't come.

  简  评

  三从四德的时代早已过去,今天女性的地位已经有了明显的改善,但真正意义的男女平等来到了吗?随着时代的变化,今天的女权运动又当怎样的合理定位呢?

  文章的论述可谓是环环紧扣。有一根线贯穿其中,从古至今,从事实到意识,层层深入使论证更透彻、深入。文章中用了两次however,突出论述的两个关键点,使论述更鲜明,条理更清晰。
