Sexual Inequality and The Adverse Impacts on Women
Throughout history, women have experienced sexual inequality, and this continues to occur within today’s society. Gender inequality could be defined as men and women having different access to resources and power, causing unlike treatment. Sexual inequality could be defined in a variety of ways and I am going to focus on how women experience inequality in sexual interactions with men while also taking into account women’s condition of inequality is not limited to just this. These inequalities are credited to the societal gender norms that oppress women and have been widely tolerated by women, reinforced by society, and leave a negative impact on women. I will be focusing specifically on how the objectification of women, sex in heterosexual relationships, and slut-shaming and victim blaming are contributions to the harmful effects that sexual inequality has on women.
