Men and women should be equal in the twenty first century because this is the century where the strength of intelligence is greater than the physical strength. In many industries female workers are far more successful than males.
We are all equal and we should have equal opportunity therefore I think female should have opportunity to serve in the military field. Many people believe that women should not serve in the military. There are a wide range of skills required by the military including health workers, management and a variety of other field. Physical strength is not the only skill needed, therefore there are many opportunities for women to provide services to the military.
In the past in developed countries, the majority of doctors were male and all the nurses were female. The jobs for females and males were differentiated by their sex. Women working in the hospital were assumed to be nurses and Men were assumed to be doctors. This was the same in many professional fields fifty years go, that men were in higher positions than females. This has changed now in many countries. The number of women in high positions is rapidly growing in Australia. The governor general is female and the prime minister is female.
In the education field in Australia, most teachers are female and women’s contribution to the education field is very high. In the UK the number of female university students are greater then male university students . I think that that women will be the leaders in the twenty first century.
I think that women and men both have the same potential to contribute to our society and should have the same opportunities.
