Summary of reasons
"Although the position of women in society today has improved, there is still a great
deal of sexual discrimination." Do you agree?

Throughout this century, the role of women within society has changed, and the
majority of people feel that the change is for the better. More women work than ever
before, and it is accepted in Western culture that many women now have careers.
Nonetheless, in my opinion there is still a great deal of sexual discrimination against
women within society, and the belief that sexual equality has been achieved is not
altogether accurate.
To begin with, many women find it very difficult to return to work after having
children. The main reason for this is that there are rarely any provisions made for
childcare in the workplace and, in these cases, women are forced to find someone to
look after the children while they are at work. Obviously, this can prove to be a time-
consuming and expensive process, yet it must be done if mothers are to be able to
resume their careers.

Secondly, the traditional views of the position of women within society are so deeply
ingrained that they have not really changed. For instance, not only is the view that
women should stay at home and look after their family still widely held, but it is
reinforced through images seen on television programmes and advertisements. An
example of this is that few men are ever seen doing housework on television, since
this is traditionally thought of as "a woman's job".
Thirdly, since families often need two incomes in order to enjoy a good standard of
living, a woman finds herself doing two jobs: one at home and one at the office. So, it
could be said that a woman's position has, in fact, deteriorated rather than improved,
with the result that women carry the burdens of equality but get none of the benefits.
In contrast, there are some people who claim that the problem of sexual
discrimination no longer exists. They point out that women do, after all, have legal
rights intended to protect them from discrimination. In addition, a few women are
now beginning to reach top positions as judges, business leaders and politicians,
while a number of other previously all-male professions are opening their ranks to
women. Nonetheless, these examples are not the norm and discrimination is still very
much with us.
Taking these points into consideration, I would say that the position of women has
improved only slightly. While rules and laws have changed, it is the deep-rooted
opinions of people within society which are taking a longer time to evolve. Needless
to say, attitudes have changed, sexual discrimination will remain a problem which we
all need to face and fight against.
Space exploration is much too expensive and the money should be spent
on more important things.

What is your opinion?

There is an argument that exploring space is a waste of money and that there are
more urgent needs to be addressed on earth, such as reducing poverty and
preventing environmental destruction. However, I completely disagree with this
opinion for two reasons.

First of all, many of the technologies we take for granted today were originated thanks
to space research. Take satellite technology, for example, which we depend on for
broadcasting and weather forecasting. Without satellites, we would not be able to
follow global events as they happen, nor give populations any warning of approaching
storms. Space research has also led to the development of new lightweight materials
that offer us heat protection and enable food preservation. Therefore, the challenge
of sending human beings into space has often driven the development of new
technologies that benefit our everyday lives.

Second, we cannot foresee the distant future, so we ought to develop the capability to
escape from the earth. Gradually, we are learning how humans can survive for long
periods in space and even travel to other planets in the future. If space exploration is
halted, this valuable knowledge will never be acquired. It is true that environmental
destruction is also a serious issue, but it is also true that we remain dependent on our
environment if we never accept the challenge of exploring other worlds.

In conclusion, while we undoubtedly face serious problems on our own planet, it is


imperative that we continue to explore space. This will promote further technological
advances as well as provide a possible means of escape should earth become
uninhabitable in future. Ideally, all nations should cooperate in the advancement of
space research.
