Week Six Journal Prompt: An Experience with Gender Equality

Posted by naomi.namnam39 on November 22, 2020 at 2:45 AM

A very specific example of gender inequality comes to mind when I think of tradition. Growing up with a rather old fashioned, although democratic, family, tends to send mixed signals. My family is usually very progressive when it comes to human rights such as racial statuses and the class system; however, when it comes to the traditional order of men and women that’s where it seems they fall short. My Great-Grandmother always told me before her death that I would be the one to cook and clean for my husband. She is, was, and always will be proud of me for going to college in order to make something of myself, but when it came to household duties, I always got most of the work as opposed to my brothers. I never saw this as fair, as I was the only girl of my generation with three boys in the house near my age. Whenever I questioned it, my Nana would always say “because it’s a woman’s job. They’re boys.” I would hope that in future, older generations can see how wrong this is, and can afford to move on from it in order to make an equal world for everyone. It’s also a good idea to educate women in teaching them that they are much more than just a housewife for their husband. This idea has been put into girls for hundreds of years, and it’s time they get taught something else, but still have the right to choose what they want in life.
