Female Labor Participation
Women in the workforce
Women in the workforce
earning wages or salary are part of a modern phenomenon, one that developed at the same time as the growth of paid employment for men, but women have been challenged by inequality in the workforce. Until modern times, legal and cultural practices examples needed, combined with the inertia of longstanding religious and educational conventions, restricted women's entry and participation in the workforce. Economic dependency upon men, and consequently the poor socio-economic status of women, have had the same impact, particularly as occupations have become professionalized over the 19th and 20th centuries. Women's lack of access to higher education had effectively excluded them from the practice of well-paid and high status occupations

Mother
A mother is the female parent of a child. Mothers are women who inhabit or perform the role of bearing some relation to their children, who may or may not be their biological offspring. Thus, dependent on the context, women can be considered mothers by virtue of having given birth, by raising their child(ren), supplying their ovum for fertilisation, or some combination thereof. Such conditions provide a way of delineating the concept of motherhood, or the state of being a mother. Women

who meet the third and first categories usually fall under the terms 'birth mother' or 'biological mother', regardless of whether the individual in question goes on to parent their child

Queen Regnant
A queen regnant (plural: queens regnant) is a female monarch, equivalent in rank to a king, who reigns in her own right, in contrast to a queen consort, who is the wife of a reigning king, or a queen regent, who is the guardian of a child monarch and reigns temporarily in the child's stead. An empress regnant is a female monarch who reigns in her own right over an empire. A queen regnant possesses and exercises sovereign powers, whereas a queen consort shares her husband's rank and titles, but does not share the sovereignty of her husband. The husband of a queen regnant traditionally does not share his wife's rank, title or sovereignty. However, the concept of a king consort is not unheard of in both contemporary and classical periods. A queen dowager is the widow of a king

Women In Law Enforcement
The integration of women into law enforcement positions can be considered a large social change.[according to whom?] A century ago, there were few jobs open to women in law enforcement. A small number of women worked as correctional officers, and their assignments were usually limited to peripheral tasks. Women traditionally worked in juvenile facilities, handled crimes involving female offenders, or performed clerical tasks. In these early days, women were not considered as capable as men in law enforcement. Recently, many options have opened up, creating new possible careers.Contents1 Overview by country1.1 Austria 1.2 Canada1.2.1 Training 1.2.2 Notable People1.3 Germany 1.4 Sweden 1.5 United Kingdom 1.6 United States2 Discrimination2.1 Race 2.2 Sexuality3 See also 4 Further reading 5 ReferencesOverview by country[edit] Austria[edit] Women have played an important role in enforcement since the early 1990s in Austria

Womyn
The word womyn is one of several alternative spellings of the English word women used by some feminists.[1] There are other spellings, including womban or womon (singular), and wimmin (plural). Some writers who use such alternative spellings, avoiding the suffix "-man" or "-men", see them as an expression of female independence and a repudiation of traditions that define women by reference to a male norm.[2] Historically, "womyn" and other spelling variants were associated with regional dialects (e.g. Scots) and eye dialect (e.g. African American Vernacular English).Contents1 Old English 2 18th, 19th, and early 20th century uses 3 Current usage in the United States 4 Current usage in the United Kingdom 5 See also 6 References 7 Further readingOld English[edit] Main article: Woman § Etymology Old English
