Challenging the Patriarchy Part 1

Season 4 Episode 44

Thu, 6 Mar 2014 5:00pm

Three successful professional women discuss the gender issues that bedevil our society. How much equality is there really between the sexes ? ” There is no such thing as the head of a household….. you may be a CEO at the office but just a woman at home….” ” Women are perceived as being the neck, men the head…” these ladies are nobody’s ” necks” and they passionately argue for real equality between the sexes in the workplace, the marketplace and in bed.

      Definitely, we need to talk about this. Its seems to go under the radar and currently I feel like this is mostly only noticed by women – which is concerning. For society to truly be equal we need men to be informed about the sexist environment we have sadly become so accustomed to.
