AUXILLO, SAMANTHA A. 09-24-20 BA Political Science 2-B Gender and Society Assignment: Interview your mother or aunt, as well as your grandmother or an elderly woman and ask them what they consider the most pressing problems of women, in their generation. Also think about the pressing issues faced by women today. A seventy-five year old woman named Esther Manalang shared her story about some pressing problems faced by women in her generation. According to her interview, most of the women are being deprived of economic opportunities, poor education, engaging early marriage at the age of sixteen, and lack of power in the government or in other words, women in their generation are underprivileged. Gender inequality are rampant because people think that only men should access the freedom to all the opportunities and women must only stay inside their houses and do all household affairs. But as time goes by, women are gradually empowered to fight these gender-based unequal treatments. Feminine movements slowly started to arise and overcome the struggles to be freed from the pressing positions. She advised the younger generation to continue fighting for the rights especially for women because she believes that men and women must have equal opportunities in all aspects to enrich the gender equality as of today and for the future.
