In the world,we all say women are equal to men.But when we request for a job,we always were treated not equally.Do you think women can do better than man? Are you treated equally in your workplace?

ok form a male perspective i see no difference between a woman and a man working .. unless if its obvious like carrying heave loads etc and for me to be sexist for a minute i always think a midwife should be a woman not a man .. but otherwise definitely no difference and they should also not be treated different.. as for the lady who says how will it be when she is a mother as well as a wife .. well apart form giving birth your husband should help with all chores as you have a partnership not a master/ slave relationship.. :) raising children and running a house is a full time job .. but if needs are such you both need to worj then you both must share work at home also :)

hi picotee i share the same duties as 3 other man in my office .. and my boss is a man too ... and i am a wife at home ... i am treated equally in my office when concerning my workload but sometimes i myself cant handle it because i have the responsibilities of a "wife" at home now i am not a "mother" yet but i wonder how it will be when i am one ... yes we can handle job equivalent to a man but our home responsibilities will tire us unless our husbands share house work or we have "made" cheers

This is an interesting topic. I think that gender has no bearing on work ethic, since I know lazy men and lazy women. But I do beleive that an woman can work as hard and as well as a man. I have not had gender issues at any place I worked at, but I did get turned down for a job at a bar because I did not wear tight enough clothes to my interview. I think that women are still mistreated, but we have made so many breakthroughs.

I think things are evolving. That women are viewed as more equal in the workplace, but that there is still discrimination in pay and advancement based on gender. Also I agree, that women can handle the workload same as men, but have that added work of mothering , being a wife, housecleaner, etc. which sometimes makes it difficult to do it all.The answer of course is to have the spouse share those duties, but don't know know if it ever equals out in the long run??

I am not saying that I am a better worker than EVERY man or even every woman. I am a painter/drywaller. I always get comments when i walk into a building and they are expecting to have a man do the job and in walks me a woman. I laugh. My boss tells everyone he looked for 2 years to find someone to run his company and finally found someoen and she happens to be a woman. Funny thing is the person under me is my daughter..another woman. Its just that we applied ourselves a bit more than others. I know I take my job very seriously and work very hard at it. Now I am sure that there are some men who can cook better than me! Some people just excel at things better than the next in differant areas.
