Why women constantly depend on men?

Updated on August 26, 2012

Have you noticed?

Females, the wonderful creatures they are, do not have all they need to survive in this world. Most women don't know how to start a fire, bills, personal finances, debate, and then there is the pay gap between genders. The average female is paid eight thousand dollars less than a man in the same position. Women have it kind of rough. Standing up for ourselves doesn't seem to work unless in certain circumstances. Why? Because we are not always taken seriously. So what can we do about the situation? Study and learn.


Women have always been seen as the weaker sex. We cannot pull large loads, fix cars, or build homes. In the eyes of a man females are laughable. We don't think logically, we think emotionally. Acting on what we feel is very different from males. And as humans, we don't entirely like what we think is different.

Females are seen as a pretty person who doesn't understand everything given to them in films, novels, and history. Women have always been viewed as the weaker sex. Our abilities are not better than males, however, they are equivalent. We can have children. We learn as a male does. Where a man is logical, we are emotional focusing on the person rather than the statistics.

How girls are raised

Girls learn to get married and have children. This causes their mind to focus on finding a man in their life instead of school. Education turns into the second detail. Finding a man fit for marriage is first. While working or studying, she looks for a good man who fits her standards. However, this task can get tiring and she expands her standards further. Sometimes her standards go so low she could marry someone who does not deserve her, who misuses her. Not as a wife, but as a cleaning lady.

Women used to be treasured and respected. All of that in history is gone, and the women of today are not entirely prepaired for that. What would you do if you saw a man actually worshiping a woman on the street one day? It's raining so he gives her his coat. He kisses her forehead instead of her cheeks or lips. He opens doors for her and lets her enter first. These actions are almost unheard of at this point. Men might not desire to do these actions, but women can cut them off until they do give that female respect. However, men will just go and find another female.

What to do?

Because women need men and cutting them off does nothing for our cause, we must find another solution. Educate yourself and your child. It has been proven that women can do the same as men in the work area. Learn how to work in business, learn psychology and work in a lab, learn in government and become a lobbyist. I know a few women who are lobbyists myself. They bring home the bacon. No, you will not always be there for your child. But they will see a strong mother who is doing the best she can for her family. This will bring great respect.

It will not be easy. Women who are emotional and logical work more than men, who are only logical. Why? Because women have to work harder to dim their feelings when at work. However, it can and will be done.

      I believe men and women compliment each other both have their strengths and weaknesses and both bring beneficial things to society, family, parenting, and relationships.

      Guys are hot and we being women want them. It's all fun and games until emotions get involved. I have this theory that women should never emotionally invest in (insert naughty word of choice) Well, you get the picture. As far as women being supposedly inferior, yeah right. We all rock (men and women) so all that's left is learning to co-exist.

      I respect your point of view & I have my own.

      I hope I will write a hub about this matter, thanks.

      Great hub. Being single I've always had to rely on my own abilities rather than relying on a man and it's a good feeling. Having said that I enjoy being female and most of the men I have known prefer a woman who knows her own mind and is independent rather than having a simpering wall-flower. Really enjoyed this hub. Voted up.

      I am attracted to my wife because of her independence, her emotional strength, her resourcefulness, and other qualities that truly make her special. Bottom line is she does not need me to survive. I never once thought of her as someone weaker. In some points she is even stronger than I.

      But it's true, many cultures even to this day, see women as less than men. I appreciate you writing about how women can (and should) break from this oppressive attitude towards them. Voted up!
