Are there any jobs that men do better than women?
The Catholic Church seems to believe so, reserving management positions just to those carrying male genitalia. They are not the only ones, though. In Saudi Arabia women are not allowed to drive, and in most countries it is almost impossible to see women employed in typical — what is typical, by the way? — male occupations.
Proof of elementary education is required for women to vote, in Lebanon, however this is not asked to men. And even if the already mentioned Saudi Arabia announced that will allow women to vote and to run for office from 2015, the Holy See stands firmly in its divine decision to be now the only State in the World where women are banned from public life.
So the question is: are really women more stupid, weak, unfitted to take independent decisions, than men are?
Most CEO are men. Facebook, Apple, Google, Microsoft. Universities are stuffed with male professors, and female cleaning ladies. And have you ever heard the expression “cleaning gentleman“!? It seems that the division is in our language as much as in our minds: why to specify “male” prostitute? Just because, if I would mention that profession, without specifying the gender, I bet you would think at a woman.
However, if I would say “president”, “director”, “general”, what images pop up in your mind? Let’s be honest here. Otherwise, why would be an interesting news to read that, in these days, Royal Navy officer Lt. Cdr. Captain West has assumed command of a major warship of Her Majesty the Queen of England?
And yes, Sarah West is the first woman to take such an important command under all history of the Royal Navy.
