I created this project to help show how females are discriminated against for wanting to do something different. The past women were known to stay at home to cook, take care of children, and clean the house but now women are wanting to get out and work. My project was about how women were unable to succeed in most cases on their profession, education, or opportunity available for them. Several people especially men did not agree with women making a life for themselves outside of the home. I have listed my ten ideas and websites to support how women are viewed in the society and why women are not accepted in the daily life.
