am doing a research paper about men vs. women
in the work place. I have heard about one case
when the physical standards were lowered for woman
but not for men. I don't agree with this and would
like to find out more. Could you give me your
opinion, facts, and statistics about these cases.
Thank you. I hope to hear from you soon,
don't think that there should be different standards
for men and women -- however, I think that we
also have to recognize that women have been denied
access to certain things that make them more skilled
as some things than men are -- and the same goes
for me. Here's an example -- women were only allowed
to run the marathon about 25 years ago. At that
time, the time difference between the first man
and the first woman was about 1 hour and 20 minutes.
In these 25 years, as women have had access to
training, etc. That time difference between the
first man and the first woman has shrunk to about
15 minutes and it's estimated that women will
surpass men in about five years. This shows that
we need some time to make up for all of the years
we were kept. I hope that explains my point.
