By exploring the social theory about how meaning is created through social interaction

By exploring the social theory about how meaning is created through social interaction (through the things we do and say with other people), this research paper will further explain and help understand the distinct cultural constructions in different regions and to further see the initial thought behind how countries are running. It will explore the cultural construction of gender in different regions, and how it affects the roles of gender in different countries through the comparison of four different cultures with the main country in focus being America. Through the specification in the similarities and differences women experience in each culture being influenced by the education, job opportunities, equality, among other we will learn how meaning of a certain role is created through social interaction will let us know why things such as abuse (mental, physical, etc.), conforming to an unhealthy life or relationship and control of one’s life in a woman’s life can happen.
The role of women in the United States has changed dramatically over the past few decades. For one, more and more women have taken on new responsibilities outside the home by joining the paid workforce. While women made up only about one-third of the workforce in 1969, women today make up almost half of all workers in the United States. Women are also stepping up to lead the country; a record number of women ran for public office in 2012, and a record-high percentage of women are serving in Congress. In addition to making progress on issues of economics and leadership, women have made progress on health issues, which impact women’s personal well-being, as well as their economic security. Over the past few years, women have been able to end gender discrimination by big insurance companies and gain free contraception coverage because of the Affordable Care Act. Despite women’s advancements, however, substantial inequalities remain.
