Not Exactly Sexism, But More Individualism
There are some people who believe that natural differences between men and women equip them for different abilities and skills. Because women have to bring their children up, they are assumed traditionally to work in the home in most cultures. Furthermore, working women are likely to dominate some caring professions such as teaching, nursing or social work, and this has tended the perception that women are specifically suited to such jobs.
However, it is not easy to separate this notion from the traditional views and to reach at any clear understanding of what physical and genetic abilities belong to one or the other gender. As alarmingly increasing number of women in different countries get access to jobs outside the home, it is undeniable that we are able to perform jobs that were traditionally only dominated by men. With the development to achieve higher education, even the highest rank positions in science and technology, politics or law, for instance, can be held successfully by women. Therefore, the claim that both sexes can do the same works equally can be a justifiable comment, especially in terms of intellectual employment.
The scientific evidence can also affirm that individual differences between people may be more important than gender differences. This means that some women are physically stronger than some men whereas some male individuals may be more caring than their female counterparts. In my opinion, in the world today individual men and women can be trained to improve similar activities. Differences in abilities and talents are more significant in individualism than sexism.
