Women should not feel like prey. They should not think ahead to-” what if my car breaks down,? “will I be alone if I work late,? If I’m stopped by police will they be pissed if I continue on to a lighted area with people?” Women should not feel as though they do not have credibility unless their husband or brother or son goes with them when they have been taken advantage of financially. Laws should cover men and women equally, payment for work should be equal. Women are the caretakers of our infants and young and should receive monetary consideration to do so, how else can a civilization nurture a better future? As it stands now, professionally, women are penalized for having children, and considered a “risk” to hire while in their child bearing years. Women are portrayed as objects in most if not all entertainment and advertising today.
