Women are underpaid, undervalued and underutilized

Asked by: anotherwolf
  • To a certain extant yes.

    Statistics show that women are paid less than men however it is difficult to determine the cause of this. Considering historical gender stereotypes, it is likely that sexism does account for some of the wage gap but not all of it. As for undervalued, it is difficult to determine how many people actually think this way. One example of this is politicians trying to prevent women from joining combat roles, saying that they are weak or will distract men (this also reveals some sexism towerds men as well). Ultimately more research in this area would be beneficial to see how many people have views undervaluing women and to what extant these views affect society. As for underutilized, more research in this area would be needed to to be sure.

  • Is this an argument?

    It is 100% accurate in fact it's a fact, you can verify in any way you wish! Look it up, ask it on Yahoo answers, check Wikipedia, look it up on multiple websites, the answer will be yes for them all, wow, people still don't know this? Real shocking America.

  • Let's even out anotherwolf.

    A fair look at the discussion and some statics can be found here.

    As the article demonstrates women are more likely to take part time jobs and jobs from lower paying career fields in the first place, but even when we look at younger women with degrees there seems to be a noticeable pay gap.

  • Depends on what you mean.

    Underpaid, on average yes. Undervalued? Arguable. Undervalued in the workplace yes, but there are many different ways of uding the word undervalued. Underutilized, probably not. I don't see many situations where they hire anyone and just not let them do anything. So false even in the workplace. Normally I'd vote "No" since I pay attention to the grammar and the sentence specifically uses the word "and" which means I ought to believe all three are true, which I don't. But in the workplace, I suppose it's close enough.

  • Underpaid is factual

    In agreement with @donderpants I would like to agree that women are underpaid but that undervalued and underutilized are questionable. Underpaid is a fact that would be hard to deny, albeit job selection does factor into it.

    The main point I want to make is more societal, that women are encouraged into less leadership-based positions from an early age which puts them at a loss in the long run. Women are trained from an early age to take on follower positions, such as in high school where they are the cheerleaders while the men play their daring sports. When we live in a society where women and men aren't both leaders but instead one is seen on the main stage and one is on the sidelines, we aren't setting them up for equal opportunities which is why I side with "yes" on this debate. Thank you

  • Women's earnings have decreased.

    Women were earning on average 88 per cent of the male average wage in 1977 but that had fallen back to just 82 per cent in May 2010, research by KPMG shows.
    The average pay gap between men and women workers grew by $7.90 per week in the last 12 months from $231.40 a week to $239.30 a week. This means women will have to work three days longer in 2010 compared to 2009 to reach an equal pay packet.

  • Feminist idiots would say yes.

    Women usually make less money than men because they choose jobs that make less money than men. This a fact. Want to hear another fact? Women are adults, not overgrown children. Telling an adult that they have to choose a certain job to forward your twisted political agenda is absolute absurdity.

  • There is no direct evidence

    There is no direct evidence that shows that women are underpaid. People who say that that they are don't take into account other data that affects the income. For example, women usually are paid less if they are not ready to work longer hours, stay on the weekends or just have less experience (because many of them take a break for baby-sitting). It has nothing to with their gender.

  • This is an old myth

    That pay gap thing doesn't exist at all. If it did, more women would be hired than men to work because they could be payed less. Also, the thing that women are just sex objects is a mindset of a few individuals. You cannot generalize that every man thinks that. Also, women have the same opportunity as men for everything. And women being raped more often then men is malarkey. That is only because statistics only show the reported cases. Most men are too afraid to say anything because of fear of being looked down upon

These freaking feminists are almost annoying as black supremacists
No one forces what job you take and if there was a pay gap, you can sue and take it to court but it doesn't exist.
