Speech – Why you should respect Women

Respect. What does that world mean to you? Every year across the globe, hundreds of thousands of women are discriminated. This is a dilemma that is happening all around us and is only getting worse. Women play a huge role in the world around us and have such big impacts, it blows my mind that they would have so much hate and abuse in their lives just for being born with two X chromosomes. That’s why I’ve come up here this fine morning, to convince you that women are special and deserve to be respected just like anyone else.

In the past 5 years, crimes directed at women have risen by 12.2%. That’s an insane increase an it doesn’t seem to be slowing down. A lot of us think that it’s okay to treat women like inferiors but I’ll tell you that it’s not. Imagine a world without them, a world where men are the only gender. This world would be full of war, violence and chaos. This is a world you don’t want to live in. Now this world may seem like a fantasy but I’ll tell you if we don’t do anything the women won’t want to live in this planet with us.

In fact there is a very possible dystopia in where Women control the world and they lock all men down in basement only using us to farm sperm. Do you want this to be your future? Is this how you want to live your life? No, it isn’t. We can prevent this, we need to start treating women as equals. No gender shall be dominant to the other.

The gender wage gap is at a 7.1% difference. If you don’t understand what this means it basically stating that women who do the same jobs as men earn 7% less money. This is ridicules, why are they earning less for doing the exact same thing as everyone else?! The careers in which this occurs are jobs in the finance, science and production industries.

Now I’ve told you what will happen if we disrespect women, but I think you should know what steps you can take to make sure you are respecting our fellow friendly females. The best way to make someone feel equal is to treat them the way you want to be treated, I know that sounds cheesy and it’s the kind of thing your primary teacher tells you but it’s true, praise the for their achievements, show interest, be appreciative.

Also as a society we need to get rid of gender specific nouns like mankind, craftsmanship gameboy, in fact our school system enforces these disgusting words, not too long ago we were taught about the ‘straw man fallacy,’ why can’t it be straw woman fallacy? Because we live in a sexist society where women are put down.

Now, it’s all well and good for me to talk about why I think you should respect women but why does it mean anything coming from me, I’m a man. Why would it be in my interest to want to treat girls as equal, because from a moral viewpoint it should be common sense to believe in equality. People have told me that I have very good morals soooo they’re good. The human race has been fighting for equal rights for the last few centuries, we conquered slavery, we have gay rights, we can destroy this gender inequality.
