Gender Equality

The concept of gender equality has been a large topic of debate within the realm of sociology and its students. However, it is my personal opinion that in today’s society, the idea of gender equality is brought to light only when it suites either men or women. In class, a few minor but eye opening examples were given to us by our professor. An example of this would be something so simple as a man being expected to hold a door open for a woman. Something so small may be overlooked and no where considered to be up for debate as an example of gender equality. However, this is a prime example of how gender equality is overlooked in today’s society, and is often brought up only when equality benefits one side of the debate. I feel if women and even men who have the expectation of an equal gender society, it should be less seen as one way street and more commonly viewed as a pros and cons idea.
