Speech on Women in Society Good Evening Ladies and Gentlemen,
First of all I would like to start off with a joke, from the point of
view of a man, about driving.
“Driving to the office this morning on the motorway, I looked over to
my left and there was a woman in a brand new Jaguar doing 90mph with
her face up next to her rear-view mirror putting on her eyeliner.
I looked away for a couple of seconds and when I looked back she was
halfway over in my lane, still working on that make-up. It scared me
so badly; I dropped my electric shaver, which knocked the donut out of
my other hand.
In all the confusion of trying to straighten out the car using my
knees against the steering wheel, it knocked the mobile phone away
from my ear which fell into the coffee between my legs, splashed and
burned big Jim and the twins, causing me to scream, which made me drop
the cigarette out of my mouth, ruined the damn phone and disconnected
an important call.
Bloody women drivers!”
For those of you in the audience who are easily offended, that was
your cue to leave.
Tonight, I’d like to talk to you about the roles of men and women. I
will be debating the theory ‘A woman’s place is in the home.’ My view
on this topic: NO!
My first topic is Women and History. Over the years, men have made
many big mistakes; for example, it has always been men, or men’s
direct/indirect actions that have been the cause of many wars, most
famous killers have been men, and men have done many atrocious things
that women would never have done if they were in charge.
There have been many male leaders and dictators who have caused pain
and misery in the world. Adolf Hitler – the man who was responsible
for the Holocaust and World War II; Josef Stalin – the leader in the
fight against Capitalism and the man responsible for the death of
millions of people; Saddam Hussein – the man responsible for thousands
of deaths and the Iraqi war. The terrorists we hear about on the news
all seem to be male, for example, Osama Bin Laden.
One of the great, male, leaders that has caused misery is King Henry
VIII. He created his own Church, the Church of England, because he
wanted to re-marry and the Catholic Pope would not agree to it, so he
created his own Church and his own Faith, the Protestant faith, which
would allow him to re-marry (He married six times, all together).
Henry VIII was responsible for the destruction of many Catholic
monasteries and the death of many Catholics throughout England.
Men like Hitler and Henry VIII have caused so much pain and suffering,
where as some of the great female leaders like Queen Elizabeth I, have
