WOMEN’S EQUALITY 2 Women’s equality is a topic that comes up in a lot of different subjects and topics. Women have been fighting for their own rights and to be equal as men since the beginning of time. There are several issues that would be considered ethical issues due to women’s equality. Some of those issues would be the right to vote, wages and compensation, promotions in the workplace, even if they should be allowed in certain parts of the military and if they should be on the front lines when it comes to war. Per Asher & Basnett (2016), “The UN World Survey on the Role of Women in Development 2014 unequivocally notes that gender equality, women’s empowerment and human welfare should be at the core of the emerging global agenda on sustainable development and climate change. It acknowledges at the outset that there are both synergies and tensions between gender equality and sustainable development. The latter observation is in sharp contrast to the usual pieties about win-win solutions and instrumental approaches, which call for gender equality and women’s empowerment because it is ‘smart economics’, and will lead to better economic, environmental or social outcomes. While highlighting women’s key contributions to promoting development and conservation, the Survey does not make the granting of rights contingent on the effectiveness of these contributions.” Asher & Basnett also stated in the article Arora-Jonsson (2011) argues that a priori assumptions about ‘women’s vulnerability’ to climate change may be counterproductive to the very women that development agencies are trying to safeguard and empower. Such assumptions homogenize and essentialize women in countries of the global South. They can deflect attention from unequal decision-making structures, draw upon and reinforce stereotypes about women’s roles in the family, community, and environment, and add to women’s unpaid work burden without corresponding rewards.”

WOMEN’S EQUALITY 3 “We define women’s career equality as an individual and organizational phenomenon involving the degree to which women (a) have equal access to and participation in career opportunities, and (b) experience equal intrinsic and extrinsic work and nonwork outcomes compared to men. We bridge the interdisciplinary divides by developing an integrative multi- level model of women’s career equality. We propose that individuals’ career perceptions and experiences are embedded in social contexts reflecting the climate for gender inclusion and interact with these contexts to shape women’s career equality outcomes. The climate for gender inclusion has three dimensions: fairness, leveraging talent, and workplace support. We identify coalescing themes to stimulate future research, including attention to national socio-economic

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
