My Opinion : I believe that women are still discriminated against in the workplace because women gets paid less than men. While doing the same jobs.
Source #1: Do Men Really Earn More Than Women?
I chose this article because it explained why men typically get paid more than women. This source say that “ men wages grow a longer period of time and achieve higher levels than women’s on average” because of “ women’s pay growth stops pacing men’s around the age of
30 , which is when college ­educated women usually start having children “ and also “overall , men and women gravitate towards different careers . The most popular choices for men tend to pay higher than the most popular choice for women.” My souce definitely supported my opinion and also bought clarity why it was possible for men to make more. After researching women and men salaries I stand by my opinion.

Source #2 :Which Gender Gap?
I chose this article because women are always competing for the same jobs as men and has to work twice as hard once getting the job. “Among college­educated professionals, the wage gap between women and men starts out small (with women earning in 90 percent range of men in their 20s) before widening as women age , falling in some cases to 70 percent level The gap starts decreasing again as women enter their 40s .” So this statement also agree with my opinion and the first source. The data I have collected reassure me that my opinion was right but also it saddens me thats the type of world that we live in. My opinion has not changed but now I am well aware and prepare to break that cycle once I have a degree.Although people are aware of

this situation for many of years now only recently our President Barack Obama has been trying to change this problem in the United States .

    How ought one to go about evaluating a work of art? The first thing I learned as an art major at St. Johns was how to evaluate a work of art or one that was in progress, often times it was a piece we got to pick at the Met or the Momma. Sometimes it was our classmate’s work that we had to critique and evaluate. It was this process that drove me away from the Art department. There was too much nit picking and it got to be a pain in the ass to sit there and listen to some power hungry professor ripping…
