As far as I can tell, there will always be sexism and discrimination based on gender. Fourteen hours ago, there was a lawsuit against Walmart for gender discrimination.

Perhaps the greatest place were gender stereotypes are seen is in pop music. All you need to do is listen a little and you will hear it everywhere. Here is a quote from a student newspaper from the University of Maine concerning a modern pop song:

"If I were a modern woman being told, 'Shush girl, shut your lips, do the Helen Keller and talk with your hips,' I would not find that particularly appealing."
