   ❖   Before You Listen

   Work in pairs. Answer the following question. (Làm việc từng đôi. Trả lời câu hỏi sau.)

   Is the life of a city woman easier than that of a village woman nowadays? What is your point of view ? Why? (Phải cuộc sốn của phụ nữ thành phố thoải mái hơn cuộc sống của phụ nữ ở làng quê? Quan điểm của em là gì? Tại sao?)

   A. Do you think the life of a city woman is easier than that of a village, woman?

   A. Well, I see your point. To some extern, for example, a city woman’s doing housework is much easier thanks to modem labour -saving devices. Or finding a job in a city is much easier too, because there is much work.

   A.  But in some other ways, the life of a city woman is more difficult and busier. I think... It is because of the high standard of living that a city woman has to work much harder to make ends meet. Meanwhie the village life is much simpler and not hasty. Most village women are content with their lot.

   ❖   Tapescript

   Women hold up half the sky. This is an old Chinese saying. However, research shows that perhaps women do more than the share of “holding up the sky.”

   Fifty percent of the world’s population are women, but in nearly two-thirds of all working hours, the work is done by women. They do most of the domestic work, for example, cooking and washing clothes. Millions also work outside the home. Women hold forty percent of the world’s jobs. For this work, they earn only 40 to 60 percent as much as men, and of course they earn nothing for their domestic work.

   In developing countries, where three-fourths of the world’s population lives, women produce more than half of the food. In Africa, 80 percent of all agricultural work is done by Women.

   In parts of Africa, this is a typical day for a village woman. At 4.45 am. she gets up, washes, and eats. It lakes her half an hour to walk to the fields, and she works there until 3.00 pm. She collects firewood until 4.00 pm then comes hack home. She spends the next hour and a half preparing food to cook. Then she collects water for another hour. From 6.30 to 8.30 she cooks. Alter dinner, she spends an hour washing the dishes. She goes to bed at 9.30 pm.

   Task 2: Listen again then answer the following questions. (Nghe lại sau đó trả lời các câu hỏi sau.)

   2. What do they earn for doing their domestic work?

   3. How much food do women in developing countries produce?

   4. How much farmwork do African women do?

   5. What time does a typical day for an African village woman begin?

   6. What time does it finish?

   Answer :

   1. It’s 40 percent.

   2. They earn nothing for their domestic work.

   3. They produce more than half of the rood.

   4. They do 80 percent of farm work.

   5. She begins her day at 4.45 am.

   6. It finishes at 9.30pm.

   After You Listen

   Work in pairs. Compare a typical day of an African village woman in the listening passage with that of a woman in your family (for example, your sister or mother), (Làm việc từng đôi. So sánh một ngày tiêu biểu của  một phụ nữ nông thôn Phi châu ở bài nghe với một  ngày của một phụ nữ trong gia đình em chẳng hạn chị em hay mẹ em).

   A : Let's compare a typical day of an African village woman with that of a woman in your family.

   B : Well, first I see the African village woman works more hours than my mother: nearly 17 hours.

   A : What about the nature of work?

   B : You mean hard work or light work?

   A: That's it.

   B :  OK. Both hard and more. From the passage, I see an African village woman does nearly all domestic work. My mother only does the cooking and the washing - up. All other housework has been done by machine. She doesn’t have to find firewood and water. My mother's work day is much easier.

   A : So I he life of African village women is really difficult.

   B : Hut It's undoubted that with development program of the UN, African village women's life will get much improved.

   A : I hope so, too.
