You should spend about 40 minutes on this task.
Most of the high-level positions in government and private organisations are owned by men and very few women are in the high-level jobs. Should government reserve a certain portion of high-level jobs for women?
What is your opinion on that issue?
Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience.
Write at least 250 words.
Model Answer 1:
Highest-level executive jobs are commonly for men and not for women since the dawn of time. However, nowadays women can do what their counterparts do, so I certainly believe that the state should influence females and reserve these high-level jobs for them. This argument will be proven by looking at the women's educational attainment and confidence.
For one, the administration should make an advance level job reservation for modern women of today because they are highly educated, so they can do high-level works as men do. For instance, women in the Philippines value education so much, that is why they strive hard to finish their bachelor's degree and even pursue their Masters and PhD (Doctors of Philosophy) and sometimes they are more intelligent than Filipino men. In fact, according to Philippine newspaper inquirer report on the 10th of March this year, more and more women are the company CEO's (Chief Executive officers). So the Philippine government must encourage more Filipinas to do these executive works.
In addition to this, most women are of more confidence than men. For example, according to the University of the Philippines study, it shows that females in the country can express their selves more than our men, whether it is verbally or in written form. Thus, they can lead better their subordinates and can make a large profit in the institution they are working with. Actually, the state has the knowledge about this research and so they give more incentives to women who will apply for a higher position in the government sector.
In conclusion, Filipinas are more academically knowledgeable and confident that is why we can see them most in the higher position in a company they are working with. So these prove that the Philippine state needs more high-level job reservations and encourage them. So I highly recommend that all of my co-women should avail this government's encouragement.
