universities should accept equal numbers of maleand female students to study in every subject.
do you agree or disagree?
in the contemporary world, universities have nosex discrimination against women, but it does notmean to say, in my opinion, that they should enrollequal numbers of male and female students to studyin every subject due to unique characteristics ofsubjects and personal choices.
industrial arts and metalworking, for example, areareas of general education that deals with technology and industry. in the past, most schoolsrequired boys to take industrial arts. today, though most courses in these fields arecoeducational, yet only a small number of female students study these subjects because theyrequire manual skills and mental abilities as most graduates in manufacturing fields work infactories where working conditions include high levels of dust, heat, or noise. some factory jobsalso require great strength or standing for long periods.
however, university home economics programs that aim to train people to work asprofessional home economists attract many people, especially women as many of theseprofessionals work in the food, housing, and clothing industries. some work in the fields ofdesign, marketing, nutrition, or family services; others communicate information toconsumers or teach skills used in the home.
more women serve in the field of nursing than in any other profession except teaching. mostnurses are women. the proportion of female enrollment in nursing programs, therefore, predominates in medical colleges.
to conclude, the proportion of gender in university’s enrollment, in general, is determinedby distinct features of the subjects and personal choices, instead of strict regulations.
