100 years of women's right to vote : The Problem is, and remains, politically

On Wednesday President of the Bundestag, Wolfgang Schäuble, on this occasion, gave a strange speech. Schäuble has made clear that there is still no consensus on what emancipation is and how you can be reached.

In his Bundestag speech, referred to the Schäuble to the fact that women continue to have a larger share of parenting, housework and care than men. That was not fair, was "a widely accepted recognition that we need to be reminded of men occasionally vigorously," said the President of the Bundestag. However, the "change social Norms" moving ahead only slowly. And: "does not prescribe".

the domestic work between men and women is unequally distributed, is correct, the data from the German socio-economic panel (SOEP). Just in the middle of life, when men of Power, influence and money backing up, crouching, the women often working part-time at child, stove and Omi, the Younger, by the way, as before. However, it is important how one thinks the Problem is: how to get women less and less influence and money Power, because men, as Schäuble suggests, help at home, so is that a Problem whose solution lies in the Private? Or they are available at home, because you too often subjectively or objectively, the possibility of missing, Power to gain influence and money – is the unequal distribution of income in the household so it's just a Symptom of a Problem in the public-political space?

The truth is probably in the middle, with his speech, but Schäuble denies the structural and ideological Resistance, which women in the company and parties to meet. Schäuble's reference to a child, kitchen, Omi trivializes Schäuble, the Problem. He misplaced the struggle for gender justice in the domestic sphere of the Trutschigkeit, to the level of a 70s nature ehezwist song, like Joan of Koczians "bit budget".

But it goes in the fight for equal rights 100 years after 1919, not only to the change of mentalities, or to everything. Policy needs to also work on the real opportunities to realise this right. Equality is not a private Problem, it is enough to wait for the "standard ideas" are Acting. The instruments in the Individual (more money for nurseries, quotas, etc.), you can argue. The fact that the Problem is not a a political.
