Hsu, Cindy. "Gender Inequality in the Workplace." The Harvard Independent. 11 Dec.
2011. Web.

This article is about how women arent treated as equals to men when it
comes to how much they are getting paid. Hsu argues that women do better in
school and could have better qualifications than the men and yet women still will
get paid 80 cents to every dollar the men gets. It shoes that the workforce was
created to accommodate men more so than women. I agree with this because she
makes another point that women have ore responsibility at home that men do so
men get to work more hours than women.

Rhode, Deborah L. Speaking of Sex: The Denial of Gender Inequality. Cambridge, MA:
Harvard UP, 1997. Print.
This book is about how gender equality comes from the roles we have
established for each gender. Rhode states that the assumptions made about women
are a disadvantage to them having inequalities to men because they tend to follow
them and not make a change. She also talks about how media and your upbringing
create the stereotypes within the genders.

"Gender Inequality in the U.S. Today." Trust Women. 19 Mar. 2012. Web.

This article is about how there is a more population of women that there are
men and yet men are the ones that run this country. Within the congress senate, and
House of Representatives women hold very few seats. Men are the ones that have
the majority. Not only that but women at times get laid off for being pregnant and
taking maternity leave this is really unfair because only women can have children so
theres no way possible a man can ever get fired for this same thing.

Wood, Julia T. "Gendered Media: The Influence of the Media on Vies of
Gender." Web.

Woods article is about the stereotypes that the media portrays about men
and women. The stereotypes are that women are dependent fragile emotional etc..
Men are portrayed as masculine, active, independent etc... These stereotypes are
portrayed in magazines sports movies TV shows etc. People watch this stuff and
the media influences them. They believe what the media is saying is true so theyll
follow it. The portrayal of men and women and media shows how much inequality
there is.

Cloud, Jeremy. "Media Views Skewed on Gender Issues." Media Views Skewed on
Gender Issues. 11 July 2012. Web.

Cloud wrote this article to state that he hates gender inequality but he is in favor
men. He believes that there is gender inequality but that women are doing much
better. That everything that is written about women nowadays is positives. He
believes that men are getting all the negative reviews. He believes its unfair how
women are getting all this press and they have role models but men dont. Men are
losing there role models and are expected to just sit back and relax because they are
men and are expected to be able to make it on their own.

Jacobus, Lee A. "Masculinity by Germaine Greer." A World of Ideas: Essential Readings
for College Writers. Boston: Bedford/St. Martin's, 2002. 725-37. Print.

Greer states that upbringing has to do a lot with the gender inequalities. Even
as babies they are treated differently. Boy babies get what they want girl babies are
expected to wait and learn patience. This shows the inequalities because boys can
do whatever they want even as babies and nobody tells them anything. The women
on the other hand has to be careful with what she does because she is judged much
more hardly.
