Do men and woman have the same rights socially and by law?
Debate Rounds (3)
"Women get paid .79 cents less for every dollar a man makes, how at all is this fair?"
Nope. Women get paid the same amount of money that men do. However, women (on balance) choose jobs that pay less money. Why? Because women (again, on balance) like to choose jobs that impact society, and these jobs are generally valued less than STEM jobs. This is because we live in an age that revolves around science.
It is actually illegal to pay women less than men for the same work, as outlined in the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
I would refute Con's second point, but she only allowed for 750 characters, so I will do so in the second round.

1.The "National Girls Collaborative Project" is clearly a biased source.
2.More female students are taking advanced classes, but this is because our school system is failing boys. Boys don't learn by sitting; they learn by being hands on. This is why society has more female college graduates now.
3.(refutation for round one) It is only illegal for women to be topless in three states.
4. Breasts are considered sexual for a reason; they are used to feed children, and are (and have been for many thousands of years) considered as a sign of fertility.
4.(refutation for round two)Women DO make the the same amount men make, for the same jobs.
ys202 forfeited this round.
