Women and men are commonly seen as having different strengths and weaknesses. Is it right to exclude males or females from certain professions because of their gender?
i personally do not agree with this view, but it was easier for me to agree in this essay. anyway, i've barely found some arguments for it...
Men and women have always been seen as having different strengths and weaknesses, no matter how much some would try to change this point of view. I believe that some professions are especially created for a specific gended (female or male). 41
To begin with, women can understand problems better than men do. It has been scientifically proven that a female nurse would successfully tackle with a patient's pains, while a male nurse would not. For instance, an experienced nurse can understand the pains that a pregnant woman goes through and can give her the perfect advice. This is an example of a profession where a male would not have the proper qualities, since women are more empathetical(?) to others' needs.79
On the other side, men are definitely stronger than women when it comes to physical activities. Police officers, pilots, firemen or mechanics are just a few jobs that would undoubtedly suit a man. This is mainly because he runs faster, can lift heavier objects and fight more efficiently than a woman can. An article published in the Times Newspaper in 2010 revealed that 80% of the cases when a police woman was assigned to catch the burglars were a failure. On the opposite, policemen were successfully able to catch them in 70% of the cases.96
All facts being considered, it can be definitely concluded that certain professions are created especially for women, while others- for men. I am inclined to believe that this is true, as they have different strengths and weaknesses. 37
