Men and women, because of their inherent physical differences, are not equally suited for many tasks The issue states that due to physical differences in men and women, they are not equally suitable for many jobs. Although, not always the case, men may be good at dealing with heavy outdoor jobs like woodcutting while women may be good indoor jobs like cooking. Differences in physical structure do make both genders inappropriate for certain jobs. Thus, it is certain to have a gender bias in various fields of tasks. Some jobs do not explicitly distinguish between men and women but during the hiring process there is an inclination towards one gender. One example of such a job is that of a person sitting on the reception or the counter. The company prefers to give out such a job to females due to women naturally possessing friendly and polite nature. While on the other hand, jobs like construction and heavy metalwork, usually prefer to hire male workers. Here, gender-based discrimination does help benefit the company as well as the employees. Consider, if a woman is made to work at woodcutting, the efficiency will reduce and thus lead to overall loss or if a man is made to work as a baby care-taker, people might not hire him. Although, such a partiality mostly is not explicitly stated it is needed for the society. People may argue that considering men and women separately for jobs may create hiring based decisions favoring one gender. This is no more true in today's world as companies need to maintain a proportional number of male and female works as per government law. Even professions like civil engineers who have a high supply of male workers can have an equal number of male and female employees as per the law. However, when considering men and women to be suitable for different roles, it should not be taken to extremes. Gender should not play a role in career options that are suitable for both genders like politics, education, and other noble professions. Women should not be expelled from the teaching profession or should not be neglected when the task of ruling is considered. Although this does not take place in many countries in the modern era, it still holds in a few undeveloped countries. Men and women when considered different in jobs cause a sense of hatred in society but this issue needs to be looked at positively. Both genders should be proud of the role they play in society instead of distinguishing between one another. Men and women both need to acknowledge and value each other limits as one gender can not exist without another.
