individual and the society
Nowadays there are not so many differences
between the rights and the jobs of a man and a woman, not like about 100 years
ago. In the past, people didn’t like the idea of a learning or a working woman,
because their task was to stay at home, cook meals, care for the old and the
children. They didn’t have so many rights, either. Later, women started to open
their eyes and said it’s not enough and not fair against them. They wanted to
go to school and to work to provide their families and even themselves a better
So, now a very big percent of the ladies are
working, but not just because they wanted, but because they need to work to get
enough money in the family wallet. Some people say it’s not good for the
children as the got less care from their parents while they are going into
kindergarten and see their family only on the late afternoons. Of course, this
is hard for their parents too, as they miss their children and can focus less
on their jobs while they are apart from each other.
There is an other important problem about the
working women, too. Just imagine a company with two jobs, which are perfectly
similar, with the same tasks, same time and everything is the same. When a man
does it, he gets, let’s say, four hundred Euros per month. When the boss
decides to give the job to a woman, she gets only 350 Euros for the same job
even though it may be harder for her.
There are brave women who started to demonstrate
against women-men discrimination, and fight against their problems which are
basically because they had borned as a woman, and not a man. Sometimes it can
be a really big disadvantage for womem who are more careerists.
Since, there are women even int he hospitals
and the army, we showed the society that we are not so weak. I consider myself
as a little feminist, since I got discriminations of who and what I am. People
don’t understand why I am doing karate and almost 100% of them asks me: are
there other girls except from you? Well, I can tell them that almost half of
the people on Earth doing karate are women. When I say that tere are almost the
same number of the girls as the boys, they usually got surprised. Well, in the
last training camp I went to in 2009 were much more girls than boys. This again
shows how differently people treat men and women.
To talk about an other topic, let’s see other
cases. When somebody goes to a new place and joins a new group of people, a new
society, they have to fight with several integration problems. Even the colour
of their skin can make troubles, or their religion. Not all of the society are
tolerant with differences and some of them have problems with accepting new
cultures or new attributions in their closeness.
That’s why these excluded people start to
search for others who are they similar to and make their own little societies,
like the different quarters in New York: Chinatown, Little Italy and other places.
If people like diversity so much on the shleves of supermarkets, why don’t they
like it on the streets? Well, this is a very interesting question.
Even, the overpopulation or the
underpopulation can be a problem. People want privacy, so they decidet o live
alone in a house, or they want a big family, but they can’t live their lives in
small flats, both are problems. One of my acquaintances said that the number of
your children is inversely proportional to your living standards. I see the
point in her words, because when you have a child, you may give everything he
or she could need, buti f you have two children, you split your money into two,
and now you can’t afford every need of your family. Even the ancient greek
people knew these disadvantages, that’s why they didn’t have so many children.
And in the not so wealthy families, they try
to help each other and to find the other’s company, so they start to move
closer to each other. This may be the beginning of a slum. And even if you were
born into a place like this, you can try do do your best, to learn and work as
hard as you can, as long as they see your address on your papers, you won’t get
the best jobs, because the employers would give the jobs for somebody else who
may be less clever and intelligent, but can show a better living environment on
Even in China, the overpopulations has a very
important role in the Chinese families’ lives. They are supposed to have only
one child, because the Chinese society grows bigger and bigger each minmute,
until not just the government, but the Earth can’t provide enough things for
their needs. That’s why the families with one child can get supplies and
different aids and bill reductions. Parents with two children are supposed to
pay everything and they don’t get anything from the government. In families
with more children, from the third kid they can’t even go to school and get
educated. This is how the government tries to stop or at least reduce a bit the
Chinese overpopulation problems.
All in all, people should solve the social,
integration and acceptance problems, before starting with the individual’s
