“Busy Wife’s Achievements,” Life Magazine. 1954.
“Her husband comes home for lunch almost every day and Marge makes it a point, whatever her schedule, to be there too”
It reminds me to that about CEDAW.
So, what is CEDAW?
It’s THE CONVENTION ON THE ELIMINATION OF ALL FORMS OF DISCRIMINATION AGAINST WOMEN.
It typically talks about culture as a barrier to progress, and see culture as an obstacle to the human rights of women. Many cultures limit women’s participate in the public life, people think women’s position is to stay at home and raise the children. For example, in African, women’s genitalia play the role in the highly gendered ways women’s sexuality is restricted and women’s subordination ensured, and there is unequal access to education and jobs, to clean water and adequate food, and to divorce and equal inheritance also burden African women. It says the culture in the past time is based on the sex, in order to fix the problem, we have to modify people’s point of view from different sexuality. In the modern society countries, women are gaining their rights back by economic advance.
