Does reaching curtain level eliminate inequality for woman?

A woman’s power

Despite the odds woman can overcome all the complication. In the past, woman has struggled desperately because they were degraded by the men. If we take a closer look at the issues surrounding the differences between the male and female roles in the workforce and in education, we will notice that women tend to be one step below men on the "status" or "importance" ladder. In American society, the woman has always been viewed in the traditional viewpoint of what role she should play in the home; that she is the homemaker or caretaker. Even when women break from the stereotypical role of "housewife" and join the workforce, they still are not given an equal opportunity at acquiring a job that is seen to be as advancing or of higher recognition, as they would like to have. Men usually already take those positions. Men are traditionally seen as being in the "supervisor" position in the home. They are the heads of the household, the breadwinners, and the women are behind the scenes, like the threads that hold everything together. The same can be said about the workplace. Men tend to hold administrative positions, while women usually have the positions that support the administrator.
