Women’s rights


Ought women to have the same rights as men? A hundred years ago the answer in every country in the world would have been ,’’No’’. If you had asked, ‘’Why not?’’you would have been told that women were weaker and less clever than men , and had worse characters


It is certainly true that the average woman has weaker muscles than the average men .Thousand of years ago ,when men lived in caves and hunted animals for food , strength of body was the most important thing; but now , in the21st century,brains are more important.


What about women’s brains? Of course, in countries where girls are not given so good an education as boys they know less. But in countries where there is the same education for both ,it has been clearly shown that there is no difference at all between the brain of the average woman and that of the average man.


But women can do one thing that men cannot :they can produce children .Becausethey,and not men , do this,they usually love their children more ,and are better able to look after them ,since they are more patient and understanding with small children.It is their own choice, and not the result of being less clever than men.  

A) There have been women  judges in Turkey ,women ambassadors in America women ministers in the British Government and women University professors in many countries.

B) For this reason ,many women are happier if they  can stay at home and look after their house and family than they go out and do the same work as men do.

C) Strength of body is still needed for a few kinds of work, but the fact that such kinds of work are not well paid shows that the 21stcentury does not think muscles are of very great importance.

D) Even now in the 21stcentury ,there are many where women are still treated almost like servants.

b) Work that women have done as well as men.

c) Women can do one thing that men cannot.

d) Women’s rights a hundred years ago.

Answer key

a: 3

b: 2

c: 4

d: 1

T. Look through the text again and think of and prepare the answer to each question.

1. Why was it generally believed a hundred years ago that women ought to have the same rights as men

2. What work do the women have done as well as men?

3. What do you think about the brains of average women compared with those of men?


*Students are divided into 3 groups

T. Now you should read the sentences aloud .You have to decide what the sentence means,say if you agree or disagree,justifying your opinion.


Men make houses ,women make homes.


Man has his will –but woman has her way.


Women run to extremes they are either  better or worse than men.

*Students discuss and express their agree or disagree.


T. Have you ever heard the word ‘’sexism’’?Teacher explains this word .

The word ‘’sexism’’ was coined to denote  discrimination based on gender. In its original sense ,’’sexism’’referred to prejudice against the female sex. In a broader sense,the term now indicates any arbitrary stereotyping of males and females on the basis of their sex.

T.  You have to listen to it again and try to explain how you understand the word ‘sexism’’ in Ukrainian and then in English.

*Some students try to retell they have heard.

T. But now imagine you are at the conference which is devoted to women’s rights. You have to think some questions you would ask at the conference.

*Students are given some cards with the word expressions .
