‘Some types of employment are more suitable for men and other types of employment are more appropriate for women.’
To what extent do you agree with this statement? Support your point of view with reasons and examples from your own experience.
In this day and age, a lot of emphases has been put on gender equality, and I am a strong believer of this. However, in my opinion, I still do think that some employments are more suitable for men as compared to women. This is because some jobs require extensive amounts of physical capabilities and also contain high risks.
Jobs in the construction industry generally require a lot of labor work and may cause physical strain. Therefore, men who have the more suitable physical capabilities would be a better fit for these roles. It is scientifically proven that men generally have more physical strength than women. However, although men are more suitable in many cases, it does not mean that women should be excluded completely from these opportunities.
In addition, military jobs also consist of more men than women. This is because working in the military requires enormous amounts of strength and endurance. It is also a job which has higher risks, which society, in general, claim that it should be a more suitable job for men.
In conclusion, although gender equality is morally right, there are some employments which are better suited for men as compared to women. Therefore, I agree with the statement that some types of employment are more appropriate depending on the gender.
