Today, TV channels provide men’s sport shows more than women’s sport shows, why? Should TV channels give equal time for women’s sport and men’s sport?

Nowadays there is an imbalance in the proportion of
television
shows on men’s
sport
and women’s
sport
. Significantly more
time
is dedicated to showing men’s sports than women’s
sport
. In
this
essay, I will speculate the reasons behind the phenomenon and argue that
television
should allocate equal
time
to show both male and female sports. Allocating more screen
time
for men’s
sport
than women’s
sport
can be explained by gender stereotype. When people think of sports, words
such
as strength,
muscularity
Suggestion
muscular
and agility will come up in their minds and those words are typically associated with men.
Consequently
, some people still hold the belief that some sports are limited to men and are not suitable for women.
For example
, Chinese people insist that women should be gentle, modest and tender and should not be involved in brutal sports
such
as hockey and football. When fewer women participate in various sports, there are fewer events to show on TV. I believe that
television
should allocate the same amount of
time
to show both genders’ sports)
Firstly
,
this
will help in overcoming gender stereotype. When exposed to more women’s sports, people will gradually change their perceptions that women are always weaker than men and realize that they are capable of playing sports as well as men. It helps to promote an equal stance of men and women.
Secondly
, it
also
helps to promote a healthy message to the public. Exposure on
television
channels is the key to heightening people’s awareness of the health benefits of good health. Since
television
has a
large
Suggestion
larger
audience reach, it will motivate more people, particularly women to exercise and
thus
improve their health. Uneven distribution of screen
time
for men’s
sport
and women’s
sport
can be attributed to gender stereotype. To
break age
the quantity broken
breakage
old beliefs and encourage people to exercise, equal
time
should be given for showing both genders’
sport
activities on
television
.

Include an introduction and conclusion

A conclusion is essential for IELTS writing task 2. It is more important than most people realise. You will be penalised for missing a conclusion in your IELTS essay.

The easiest paragraph to write in an essay is the conclusion paragraph. This is because the paragraph mostly contains information that has already been presented in the essay – it is just the repetition of some information written in the introduction paragraph and supporting paragraphs.

The conclusion paragraph only has 3 sentences:

  • Summary
  • Restatement of thesis
  • Prediction or recommendation

Example:

To summarize, a robotic teacher does not have the necessary disciple to properly give instructions to students and actually works to retard the ability of a student to comprehend new lessons. Therefore, it is clear that the idea of running a classroom completely by a machine cannot be supported. After thorough analysis on this subject, it is predicted that the adverse effects of the debate over technology-driven teaching will always be greater than the positive effects, and because of this, classroom teachers will never be substituted for technology.

Start your conclusion with a linking phrase. Here are some examples:

  • In conclusion
  • To conclude
  • To summarize
  • Finally
  • In a nutshell
  • In general
