Gender norms have been placed on humans for a long time. Based upon your gender we are expected to follow certain expectations that society has placed on us. But I totally disagree with this only because we live in a country where it is popular for it to be called “Land of the Free”. The rules or ideas are not based in biology but they are set by a society, culture or authoritative figure. But depending on the culture, what may be acceptable in one culture can be rejected in another.
Gender equality is another issue that has also been going on in America. It is the fact that women should be treated the same way as men are treated. They are also fighting for equal pay in the workforce because they be performing the same task that men do. I totally agree to this because everyone should be treated equally in every way and there is no way that a certain gender is getting more privileges that the other is. America should be representing its true constitution and keeping to its promises.
