Rosie The Riveter Compared to our parents and their parents most of us hardly ever encounter the idea of gender discrimination While it could just be my isolated opinion it seems to me that women today dont feel constrained to do certain jobs or stay at home having children The days where women were simply secretaries kindergarten teachers or housewives seem to be distant memory to most of us today and while we cannot say gender discrimination is entirely gone it is vastly decreased Today former first lady Hillary Clinton is a senator many of the most powerful CEOs are women and even my girlfriend is a civil engineer It never crosses my mind that a woman might not be able to do the same jobs that I can nor do I feel that I dont want women to be able to compete with me It is partially my fairly liberal upbringing but also that Ive been exposed to environments where it is expected that regardless of sex one will go on to greater accomplishments In Rosie The Riveter we youthful occupants of the 21st century got to see what it was like for women not much more than half a century ago In less than 6 decades weve gone from a society where women were supposed to be beholden to their men to one where they are very nearly equal in many respects Given the lengthy history of the oppression of women such rapid progress boggles my mind It seems to me that World War II give the advancement of American womens rights just the boost it needed much to the chagrin of the male-dominated society As we saw in Rosie The Riveter women could work just as well as men and while it was suppressed in those times it seems that in many cases they were better than the men they replaced Women for the first time ever were literally placed in mens
