So it is really the males who allow for such gender bias The actual question that hangs is "Do men have more freedom than women that allows them to dominate" Unfortunately it is our society that has given more freedom to men than to women.
As we know, a society is built upon from its historic backgrounds and contains similar values and beliefs for a very long time. Our historic background unfortunately has held women in the background while men have always taken the center stage. The examples cited above are enough to remind us that women have been an oppressed segment of our society. Being physically weaker has left them good for lesser professions and, home and child rearing have become their most accepted professions. Mary Wollstonecraft a famous British philosopher and feminist went on to say that "The grand source of female folly and vice has ever appeared to me to arise from narrowness of mind; and the very constitution of civil governments has put almost insuperable obstacles in the way to prevent the cultivation of the female understanding" . Bearing the emotional characteristic, have left them untrustworthy of emotion enduring jobs. They have been subjected to this stereotype from the very beginning and it is this same stereotype that women have to face in our present society. Many modern machines have helped beat some of the stereotypes especially of physically weaker as it now requires only a part of the masculine resources, and if the minimum demanded is not above the female's capacity, they can be considered as man's equal . Efforts to escape this charade have been welcomed in most quarters but it will be many years until women can truly turn the tables on men.

And it takes its values and believes from the historic background. And unfortunately history has always had thing with 'power'. People who possess power have always controlled either by forcing or by charming the people with lesser power. Nations have fought to gain this power and many have been wiped off the face of the earth as a result. Each day people fight to take control over another. Violence is repeated day after day and yet there is no respite.
"So what actually is power" Power is the ability influencing others to change a belief. Through time, power has been associated with money, and this belief is justified. Money might not necessary bring happiness, but it is sure to bring power with it . And this characteristic allures people to come and come again and reach out to the seductive nature of money. They believe that a higher income will beget power and the more power they can get, the more they will be able to influence others under their command. This is true for most of the wealthy nations. The third world countries fell compelled to buckle under the command of modern wealthy nations to meet their basic needs. This compulsion wipes out the notion of freedom from the third world countries. These traditional low income countries are either forced or influenced to take command from their
