5. Women Aren’t as Educated as Men
To the next ignoramus who claims women are uneducated, ask, "If that's the case, how come women are outpacing men in degree attainment?"
Zooming in on Americans between the ages of 25 and 34 - in 1984, about 27 percent of men and 23 percent of women had Bachelor's degrees, according to a study by the White House Council of Economic Advisers. In 2014, approximately 39 percent of women completed a four-year degree, while just 32 percent of men did the same. If this pattern continues to persist, the stereotype that women are not as educated as men will be a thing of the past!
They say that stereotypes come from, at least, a modicum of truth. But as gender roles evolve, many of these generalizations don't even have the support of veracity behind them. That's why, in a decade, we can infer these five stereotypes will cease to exist.
