Listening text ARE WOMEN GIVEN A FAIR CHANCE? I dont think women are given a fair chance to have as good a career as men for three reasons. First, girls have more difficulty getting an education than boys. If there is little money in the family, boys will get first chance to go to school.
Even if girls do begin school, they often leave earlier to help the family or to go to work. It is often felt that girls will marry and look after another family but that boys must earn money for the family. This way of thinking prevents some girls from training for a career.
Second, women have more difficulty getting to the top of their chosen career. Most people who run companies are men. So they choose other men to succeed them. This means that women get fewer chances to show how good they are at running businesses.
Unless they are give the opportunity, they will never be able to show that they can run companies successfully. Third,women are more likely to give up their careers to look after children or run the house. This is because these kinds of responsibilities are considered womens work.
However, men do not have this problem. They can work long hours and go on business trips. They can improve their career chances since the family is cared for at home.

LM: Why did she do that? L: Well, at that time English were ruling France. They treated the French very badly. LM: Oh dear! Why didnt the French soldiers drive the English out of France?
L: They tried, but they did not have good leaders. So they lost every battle. LM: How did Joan help? L: She joined the French army. She was a very good soldier and she won battles against the English army!
LM: Were women allowed to be soldiers then? L: No, they werent! The Church didnt allow it.
LM: So how did she become a soldier? L: Well, she dressed up and behaved like a man, and some people say she went to see the king of France and got his permission.
Part 2 LM: How could she be so brave? L: Thats because she believed God had sent her. She had many good ideas for attacking the English army. The French soldiers followed her.
LM: I see, but what did the English do ? L: They were very angry. They caught her and the Church decided she had not behaved as a woman should. So they killed her. LM: How terrible! What happened to the French after her death?
L: The French soldiers were inspired by her spirit and won more battles. Finally they ended the English rule in France. LM: So she won in the end. Did the English feel sorry about what they did to her ?
L: Yes, they did. Much later they understood that she was fighting for her country.The Church made her a saint!
