C. Read carefully the following passage and then choose the best answer:
It has been thought that women are the second class in citizen, and men are the first. There is not a real
equality of opportunity for men and women. Years ago, people were living in a man-dominated society. Women
had to obey their husbands and fathers absolutely. Women's place was in the kitchen and women's work was
housework. In many places, women were not even' allowed to go to school. Women had no rights, even the right
to choose husband for themselves. Men usually occupied high positions in society so they thought they were
more intelligent than women. Men often considered women as their property. Sometimes, they were mistreated
by their husbands and suffered the problem as a fate. Many parents did not even want to daughters.
Despite the progress, there remain outdated beliefs about women's roles, traditionally passed down from
generation to generation. Men are commonly seen as the strong bodies, bread-winners in the family and key
leaders in society, while women are restricted to being housewives and child bearing and care, and housework
such as washing and cooking.
According to social surveys, many women in the 21st century still have to work over 12 hours a day
including working in offices and doing countless household chores without any help from their husbands. In
some regions, the labor of women is not recognized despite the hardships they endure to support the whole
family. Moreover, women are the direct victims of family violence, especially in rural areas.
Thanks to the women's liberation movement, nowadays women have proved that they are equal to men in
every aspect. An average woman has weaker muscles than an average man but she may be as intelligent as he is.
Women can do everything that men can, and women can do one thing that no man can: they produce children.

A trend in women's change in attitude to work and home life roles has launched because more and more

The image for women of the 1950s was the domesticated housewife and mother who cooked, cleaned, and
seweD. The vogue woman of today is proud while possessing the role as career woman and mother, wife, and

to being employed outside the home and is more strongly felt by women working more hours, especially those
working full-time." The 2001 U.S. Current Population Survey found that many women wish to have fewer office
hours. More and more women want to cut work hours because they find it difficult to take care of household
responsibilities while maintaining a career. The Female Lifestyle Survey of Great Britain 2004 found that 86% of
