IELTS Essay February 2018: Women Should Have Equality With Men.

In some countries, people think women should have equality with men, in particular, equal rights to work as police officers or serve in the Army. Others think women are not suitable for such jobs. Discuss both views and give your own opinion.

40 minutes, 250 words at least.


Introduction: (Introduce the topic with a general statement and MENTION the reasons supporting each view. Also state your opinion.)

The 21st century is witnessing gender equality in all domains as women are being empowered. While some people believe that women should equally participate in police and army as they have the same abilities to perform as men have, others think that women should abstain from these jobs since they are physically not as strong as men and have to perform maternal duties. I agree with the former view.

Body Paragraph 1: (EXPLAIN view 1)

The process of women empowerment during the past few decades has led to more and more women working in combat and non-combat roles in occupations such as police and army. Women have proved that they have the same skills in using weapons, managing crowds of people, tackling criminals as the men have. Moreover, they are equally capable as doctors, nurses, engineers and leaders in the police and army. For instance, a recent occupation report by the Indian Army revealed that the percentage of women engineers has increased from 5 percent in 1970 to 23 percent in 2010. Similarly, the percentage of women in active combat duty has also increased tremendously.

Body Paragraph 2: (EXPLAIN view 2)

On the flip side, many people believe that women are not as competent as men in these occupations due to harsh nature of these jobs. Police and army jobs often require strong physical ability that women lack biologically. These involve traveling through rough terrain and engaging an enemy in close combat. These activities require strength and women are not as strong as men in these endeavors. Moreover, maternal compulsions of a woman often result in abandoning these crucial duties for an extended duration during childbirth and rearing. 

Conclusion: (Conclude the essay by giving your opinion and explaining it adequately).

In conclusion, I strongly believe that women should be involved in active roles in armed forces since the advancements in technology have enabled them to perform challenging tasks as efficiently as men. If women are not allowed to perform these duties, nations will make the mistake of discarding their 50 percent population from productive, patriotic duties.
