Women Should Be Equal To Men, But Somehow They’re Not
I believe that all women and men should be treated equally. All
women should have the same chance to do anything just as men can do.
Women shouldn’t be limited in anything thing they want to do.
One beautiful fine afternoon, my family had decided to spend the
rest of the afternoon at the park with a couple of other families. The time
I got there it was about 3 o’clock. There was to be a big football game
to take place. I thought to myself how much fun, especially since I loved
to play football because I have fun tackling people.
When we had arrived at the park, my dad had got ready to play
football and I got ready to play. Then my dad walked over to us. He asked
me what I was doing. I told him that I was getting ready to play. “What are
you doing?” my dad said. I’m getting ready to play football,” I said. “Your
not playing.” “Why not?” “Because I said you can’t and only boys are

I didn’t understand why I couldn’t play, I mean my brother is playing
and I am as tough as him. At that moment is when I Realized that in this
world women aren’t treated the same as men.
I don’t understand why people think that men are so much better

from work. It’s not like that today, but we can’t play football, baseball, or
hockey. We have sports they can’t play but they do. For example, they
For centuries women never wanted to run for president; they
though that it was a man’s job to run the country. Now Hilary Clinton is
running and is showing how the world is becoming better at making
women and men equal, but it’s still not enough. I believe women and men
should be treated equal. Everyone should be able to do what you want and
shouldn’t be stopped because of their gender. I believe the world will be a
equal place. I believe everyone has an equal chance at life.
