Read the passage carefully and choose the correct answer.
For approximately the last 100 years women have been fighting for the same rights as men, especially around the turn from 19th to 20th century with the struggle for women's suffrage and in the 1960s with second-wave feminism and radical feminism, and were able to make changes to the traditionally accepted feminine gender role. However, most feminists today say there is still work to be done.
Numerous studies and statistics show that even though the situation for women has improved during the last century, discrimination is still widespread: women earn a smaller percentage of income than men, occupy lower-ranking job positions than men and do most of the housekeeping work. However, there may be some reason for this, as some studies have indicated that many jobs which are perceived to be male-dominated usually have longer hours, necessitate long periods of exposure to the elements, are higher risk and require a fair amount of physical strength.
When feminism became a conspicuous protest movement in the 1960's, critics often argued that women who wanted to follow a traditional role would be discriminated against in the future and forced to join, the workforce. Many women, especially single parents are denied this choice due to economic necessity. In theory, feminism is the belief that a woman should have the right to make her own decisions. Those women who choose to pursue careers and higher education are more and more appreciated.
36. After a long time of struggling, women have got a quite equality to men in every aspect so far.
a. True b. False c. No information
37. According to some studies and statistics, men spend more time doing housework than women do.
a. True b. False c. No information
