[00:-1.00]A WOMAN'S PLACE IS IN THE HOME
[00:-2.00]Chairperson and fellow students,
[00:-3.00]1.Replying to such a well-argued speech is not easy,but I will try.
[00:-4.00]As you know,I'm speaking against this motion.
[00:-5.00]I wish to make three main points.
[00:-6.00]First,we cannot accept the traditional role for women
[00:-7.00]in a modern and sophisticated society.
[00:-8.00]Second,I wish to refute the argument that women are weaker than men.
[00:-9.00]Third, I shall discuss whether or not it is damaging
[00:10.00]for a childif his/her mother has a job.
[00:11.00]2.In proposing the motion,
[00:12.00]Jane suggested that we should be proud of our history
[00:13.00]and respect the traditional role of women.
[00:14.00]Well,I want to remind her of some other facts about the past.
[00:15.00]Girls born into some poor families were not wanted.
[00:16.00]They were sometimes killed or later sold as slaves.
[00:17.00]After getting married,many women were like servants in their husband's family.
[00:18.00]These wives,confined to their houses,had very low status.
[00:19.00]New wives sometimes committed suicide.
[00:20.00]Are these traditions which we should support today?
[00:21.00]I don't think so.
[00:22.00]We can be proud of our history without clinging to these old traditions.
[00:23.00]3.Second,the proposer mentioned the old argument
[00:24.00]about women being weaker than men.
[00:25.00]Having made this point,
[00:26.00]she said it showed that women were unsuitable for many jobs.
[00:27.00]Well,I must disagree with both statements.
[00:28.00]Looking around,we can still see some women doing heavy,physical work
[00:29.00]on farms,building sites androads.
[00:30.00]Thus,women can do heavy manual labour when they have to.
[00:31.00]Furthermore,statistics prove that women suffer fewer serious diseases.
[00:32.00]Moreover,the life expectancy1 for women is longer than that for men.
[00:33.00]So how can we say women are weaker?
[00:34.00]Finally,while agreeing that men are better at weightlifting,
[00:35.00]I must say that very few jobs actually require physical strength these days.
[00:36.00]4.In his speech,James tried to pay us a compliment,I think,
[00:37.00]when he said that women are superior to men in bringing up children,
[00:38.00]and should therefore stay home.
[00:39.00]I concede that many women feel torn between their careers and their families.
[00:40.00]However,a recent study has shown that working women
[00:41.00]spend only five hours lessa week with their children than non-working women.
[00:42.00]It is better for the family finances and for the woman's own development.
[00:43.00]For instance,my mother returned to work a few years ago.
[00:44.00]Having been at home for ten years,she felt quite nervous.
[00:45.00]After returning to work, she became more confident.
[00:46.00]But I feel strongly that every woman should have the right to work out her own priorities.
[00:47.00]5.Thus,I have shown that some traditions of the past were unfair,
[00:48.00]and that women are not the weaker sex.
[00:49.00]I believe we're capable of doing any job a man can do.
[00:50.00]In our city,over 51% of the female population now have jobs.
[00:51.00]Many of those also manage to run a home,and so they have a double burden.
[00:52.00]Very few men could manage this.
[00:53.00]6.There are still many examples of discrimination against women in our society,
[00:54.00]as Simon pointed2 out in his speech.
[00:55.00]As a community,we are wasting our valuable resources
[00:56.00]if we don't let women play their full part.
[00:57.00]A woman's place is not only in the home,but also in the office,
[00:58.00]in the design studio,in the bank,and in the managing director's chair.
[00:59.00]I urge you to vote against the motion.Thank you.

[-1:23.00]A Reading     Growing Up
[-1:24.00]Leaving childhood andheading into adulthood7
[-1:25.00]is a physical and emotional process for teenagers.
[-1:26.00]Growing up is difficult in terms of health as well.
[-1:27.00]As a teenager,you need to understand what is going on with your body,
[-1:28.00]how to handle those changes,
[-1:29.00]and how to start taking responsibility for your own health.
[-1:30.00]Puberty is a mysterious word.
[-1:31.00]Upon pronunciation,it almost sounds embarrassing.
[-1:32.00]But it is really nothing to be shy about.
[-1:33.00]After all, everyone goes through it.
[-1:34.00]A young person may begin development at 8 years of age,
[-1:35.00]while another may not show signs of development until 14 or 15.Generally,
[-1:36.00]girls tend to enter puberty two years ahead of boys.
[-1:37.00]For both sexes,puberty is usually complete by age 18.
[-1:38.00]During these years,your voices deepen,
[-1:39.00]pimples grow and many other physical changes happen.
[-1:40.00]Your emotions also see-saw as you ride the wave of adolescence8.
[-1:41.00]Part of the ride may have something to do with your hormones;
[-1:42.00]whereas the other part may come from your changing relationships
[-1:43.00]with your parents and friends,or pressure from peers.
[-1:44.00]Puberty is important for all boys and girls
[-1:45.00]It may greatly influence personality development,particularly for girls.
[-1:46.00]Research findings show that adolescent girls
[-1:47.00]sometimes undergo a significant drop in self-confidence.
[-1:48.00]They may feel uncertain and insecure about their own judgement and emotions
[-1:49.00]Yet they are usually reluctant to tell their parents and teachers
[-1:50.00]about their feelings.
[-1:51.00]Therefore,adolescent girls
[-1:52.00]should be encouraged to discuss things with trusted adults
[-1:53.00]to cope with such natural developmental difficulties
[-1:54.00]in their personal and school life.
[-1:55.00]Good advice at the right time can lead to positive and productive results.
[-1:56.00]Boys, at this stage,
[-1:57.00]should also start to learn how to make sensible decisions for themselves. [-1:58.00]If not,bad choices or risky9 behaviour may bring about lifelong consequences.
[-1:59.00]Parents and schools,communities and media can each do a lot to care and help.
[-2:00.00]It is the responsibility of the whole society
[-2:-1.00]to ensure young people's health growth
[-2:-2.00]--through their teenage years into adulthood.
