It depends on your gender, if you are a male, it has little effect but if you
are a mother then you have more negative effects
With males, people felt like the fathers would be much more responsible, but
with women they thought that they would have more of a divided attention
Hooking up
In a relationship has negative and positive effects

aboriginal women

Part I: The Politics of Gender Inequality
Women and Men pay difference is about 70% - 72%
Reasons for pay gap:
Type of job ex. Teacher/owning daycare (female job) vs. engineer
(commonly known as a male job)
When women take maternity leave, or when they stop working for a couple
of years for their children
If you’re the same male or female applicant with the same level of expertise,
statistics show, that women are less likely to negotiate with the salary.
However, males are more likely to negotiate. The reason females do this is
not because females are naturally nicer, but it is because, when females do
this, they are more likely to be penalized for acting like a male, there are
consequences.
Now, parliament is 26% of them are women but this is a big gap compared
to the population because there is 51% females in the population
Making Gender through “Nurture”
Girls pink, boys blue
But is the gender difference as big as odten this it it?
There are differences there
But not a big difference like we think
It’s a very small difference
Gender difference doenst lead to inequality it’s the society divides human
speicies into male and female and that perpetuates the inequalioty
Its not any kind of difference, its in fact the other way around

Hegemonic Masculinity
The ideal is hegemonic maschulibity, when women compare themselves and
measure themselves aginist that standard, that imaginary standard that
society recognizes as the most highly regarded form of masculinity is
hegemonic masculinity
It has power that everyone compares them too
Obama is a good example of hegemonic masculinity
Most powerful person in the united staes/ in the world
He is a black man, before he was the president he went to this formal event,
tie event when he was a senator he was outside the event venue, a couple
gave them their car key, the couple thought he was valet because of the
colour of his skin, although he was a senator and Harvard education, his skin
colour, he wasn’t considered having hegemonic masculinity because of his
race.
This is contextual and changing, many of us wrote Obama as an example of
hegemonic masculinity, shows that we are changing, our relations with race
are changing, 50 years ago under segregation we wouldn’t say that, now in
the 20th century people bring it up.
It is on a constant change
Maybe in the future, athelicism wont be considered a marker of hegemonic
masculinity, because the definition of it is always changing
Emphasized masculinity
Making the masculine feel good, she gives him support, dona from suits is a
good example of emphasized femininity
Without dona, Harvey falls apart
Are there more than 1 female characters? Do they every talk about things other than the man?
