real issues? okay lets talk about real issues. how about the issue of rape culture, the fact that society continues to teach girls that any unwanted attention is their fault. It is up to how the dress and act to control mens hormones, only 2% of rapists are actually sentenced and even when they are its usually with a max of 7 years. girls are taught that they will only amount to great achievements if they’re pretty. they’re constantly pressured to change their appearance and even when they do that they will never meet the standards held to them by society. what about unequal pay? women earn 20% less than men do. some people attribute this to motherhood. The US is one of three countries that doesnt have to offer maternity leave meaning that when women leave to have a child, they have to find a new job after the fact. Every other developed country in the world offers maternity leave and their job is waiting for them when they get back. This forces women to chose between motherhood and their career, something males dont have to worry about. This country does not value women to the same degree as men, this is seen in all aspects of their lives whether its social, economic or political circumstances.
