Gender equality

I explain this article in the online voice record:


One day in 1975, the women of Iceland stopped work and refused to do the housework because they wanted men respected their work, and equal wage.

In 2018, Iceland was the first country in the world where the companies have to prove gender equality. So Iceland is called the best place in the world for the woman.

There are a lot of female managers in Iceland who don’t give up their work to have children. In 1980, Iceland had a female president of the country that was the first female president in Europe at once. She says the “” was the beginning for women’s equal rights. One of the consequence was she was president.

However, after her, Iceland didn’t have another female president and the parliament losed woman and unequal rights still is.

Nowadays, the grown woman of Iceland do not want to wait for equal pay at work. Perhaps, the Iceland’s new law allows this gender equality.

What I’ve found interesting is the idea of protecting the rights for women to play a real role in the country’s economy and Iceland is a real example. I was surprised about the fact that one day in Iceland the woman went on strike to find equal rights. I’m absolutely convinced that this day off empowered the woman.

The research seems to suggest that the issue of gender equality is in all cultures over the world.  For example, the woman in India doesn’t use mobile phones and computers. So as far as I’m concerned, the government have to start a policy that allows women access to technology to speed up the process of achieving gender equality.

Another way to break the door down in an industry that is traditionally male is female entrepreneur create innovates ideas to start a new companies like business woman with confidence in themselves to break free of their professional constraints.
