Help! What does the fact that more women are being educated and finding increased employment opportunities and empowerment demonstrate?

    Are those the only choices? Here are my initial reactions (IR) to each... QA: the effect of globalization on the status of women IR: Maybe. Pretty vague... QB: the power of “The Feminine Mystique” IR: What does that even mean? QC: the importance of education IR: Why would this be specific to women? QD: the drop in domestic opportunities for women IR: No, that's the wrong way. Plus, I'm worried about the word "domestic". We need to know WHERE we are talking about before we can respond to this one. What are your reactions? For me, I ALWAYS want to examine whether the question contains any fallacies. 1) Are more women being educated? 2) Are they finding more employment opportunities? 3) Are they growing in empowerment? 4) Are we overlooking the fact that many women, even well-educated and empowered women, want to be mothers? This requires thinking and pondering and discussion. You can't just answer it.

    I was thinking it was "A". Focusing mainly on the women's rights issues, Education is very important for women. That was a big fight back then. It may be true that Empowered women want to me mothers, but back then that was one of there only choices was to bare children.

    I, too, would lean toward "A". Unfortunately, you have used the term "back then", indicating the question is designed for a specific time period. I did not have that information when I was thinking about the choices. Very important to have the whole question. I think you mean "bear" children. Notice, if you will, that bearing children is not the same as being a mother. There is quite a bit of child-bearing going on, today, but a whole lot less being a mother. Of course, "back then" they may have been more similar concepts.

    I have no idea of the time period, but since the rest of my history is based "back then". I'm guesstimating

    the time period was when womens rights were coming to attention and they wanted to get laws passed and they had theyre own documents stating rights they could have that they would have people sign I would lean towards the answer a aswell

    Well, Women's Rights have been "coming to attention" quite a bit since at least 1890 or so. In many cases a few decades before that. There is little decrease in the issue as the specific concern has globalized. Many cultures, particularly religious, be they Christian, Muslim, or so-called "Eastern", or Aboriginal continue to be quite confused on the role of women on this planet. In other words, "back then" could mean anywhere from 1850 or so all the way up to 5 minutes ago. :-)

    Yes @tkhunny i mean it has always been an issue but the issue was starting to increase more and more making it become a bigger issue

    I don't disagree except perhaps in one point. If we get any good at it (setting things as they should be - whatever that is), one day, it should stop increasing. Perhaps that day is not yet. In any case, we seem to have a general consensus on how to answer the question. Good discussion!!

    Maybe, considering women don't fully have the same rights as men do, close - but not all the way, I'm not sure if this issue will ever end, possibly one day a lot later in life. No one will ever be satisfied all at once.

    "close" in some cultures. Not-so-close in others. ...and this is why I used the phrase "whatever that is". Are women SUPPOSED to have the same rights as men? Maybe women should have MORE in some cases? Maybe fewer in others. Are we SURE we already know where things SHOULD be? I'm not sure. This was the problem with the Equal Rights Amendment to the U.S. Constitution (c.1974ish). The amendment's legislative history simply refused to differentiate AT ALL between men and women. To me, that is wrong. Shall we send late term pregnant women to the front lines to fight wars? Probably not. Men and women are different. We should not try to think they are the same. Should men and women have equal opportunities and life choices? That is closer to "yes". My views. I welcome others'.
