A feminist model of preferences must be incorporated into policy recommendations and welfare economic analysis. Most significant, institutional structures are a big concern and should be analyzed carefully. Basing on an economical point of view, some aspects of women equality need to be addressed, and various steps be taken to overcome them. They include: Wage Discrimination against Women Investigations of the labor market in most countries indicate that average wages seem to be lower for women as compared to those of men. However, one may be right to say that this observation is not sufficient enough to conclude that gender-based wage discrimination really exists This is for the reason that the differences may be due to dissimilarities in productivity, or unequal skills. In this sense, I can ague that gender discrimination against women exists in a market economy, only if men are paid higher salaries than women for a specific productivity level (Samuelson, & Nordhaus, 2005). According to the Inter Press Service, on a world scale, women farm over half of the total food produced. In the Caribbean and Sub-Saharan Africa, women produce 80% of basic foodstuffs, while in Latin America, they majorly involve in poultry, horticulture, and subsistence farming. However, little or no recognition is given to this, and worse of all, most of them go unpaid. Such women find it hard to find financial resources to sustain themselves, since many societies have not yet realized or accepted that traditional roles have changed. Reasons behind such disparities include the idea that women are underpaid generally because they usually carry out low-status jobs in comparison to men (England, 2003). Like in the graph below the yellow bar shows the rate of employment for men as opposed to that of women in pink. Figure1.

This paper examines the various roadblocks experienced by women employed in historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) in Georgia. An analysis of HBCUs is integral because these institutions are known to be purveyors of rights of minorities. The perceived presence of glass ceiling effects in these institutions mark the need to address this issue in present day context.
Though it is now difficult to find a Hester Prynne moving with a scarlet letter on her breast in America, it is impossible to say that the attitude to woman has changed, is decent and perfect. On the other hand, the new woman with her increased sexual freedom prefers to go to the opposite extreme making it difficult for the emergence of a situation in which a balanced sexual relationship is possible.
The movements are either governmental or non-governmental organisations whose agenda is to eliminate discrimination against women. The international communities address the matters of women through conferences that pass agreements to protect the rights of women (Kambel, 2004).
Male domination is visible in every segment of social and professional life in America and the cases in American police force are also not different. American police force is infamous for women discrimination compared to the police forces in other countries.

In Canada, Ontario, there is evidence that women, especially female immigrants, have suffered from discrimination in the employment sector. Apart from the hardships they have to survive before obtaining a job, it is clear that their
