Race And Ethnicity Forum Essay

489 words - 2 pages

Citing our textbook material, should we define minorities in terms of gender as well as race and ethnicity? Defend your response.

First of I want to start by saying that I do not believe that we should have the idea of minorities in our society anymore. If we want to ever have a society where everyone is considered equal then no one should be categorized as a minority. Whether it is because of gender, race, or ethnicity; I think that if you still want to categorize people as a minority then we will never move forward as a country. I believe that when you treat someone as a minority, we are further alienating them.

It’s funny that I am saying this because I am a stay-at-home mom, but it is by choice not because my husband told me to or that he wants me to, he asked if I wanted to and I made the choice. I said yes because I wanted to see all my girls “firsts”, for example, their first steps. When it comes to women in the workforce they are not viewed or paid the same. Women are making $0.77 to every $1.00 that men make (Leon-Guerrero, 2011). This does not seem fair, especially if everyone has the same qualifications and degrees. I believe that if women and men are able to pass the same tests and prove that they are able to do the same job no matter what that job is they should be paid the exact same amount. They only different should be experience in the field. By this I mean if a man has 10 years more experience and a woman than he should get paid more but it should also be true if it is the other way around as well. But a lot of the time it is not. I think that women need to start being treated equally in the workforce; women are just as capable as doing the majority of jobs as men are. Yes there are some jobs that women are just not built to do but again if they can pass the test I do not see why they should be treated any different.
