Gilman’s theory on gender inequality is still present in our society today. Today a women earns less then a male does even if she is better qualified for the position then he is she will be making less then him which is pretty unfortunate. In the clip from the show “Mad Men” we get to see something very interesting that I believe still happens today and is still encouraged. We see how Joan the head of the secretary pool shows Peggy the new girl the ropes around the office. We see how Joan tells her to dress better, to be very attentive to her boss and to watch her figure so ultimately she won’t have to work and to become a housewife. I find this all so controversial because women in the workplace always have positions like receptionist or secretaries and are expected to be like wives and waitress’s to meet the needs of their boss who of course are men and their ultimate goal is to get married and be whisked awato into the suburbs and away from the city. It’s as if men dominate everything everywhere and women should always just be in the mere shadows tending to their every need. In the sixties we see this happening again when women who had access to education would start attending universities but most of them wouldn’t finish because they would end up married before they finished its like women did want to learn and become educated but above that the most important gender role of a women is to be a wife and a mother and taking care of things in the domestic sphere. Women still today deal with them and it is usually why because of these roles women are told they make less money then a male either because their women they’re less competent then men, have to raise babies, and have to be paid out if they go out on maternity leaves. The fact that women are viewed this way just because of the gender roles placed on us by society is unfair and upsetting in my opinion.
