Equal Housing for Women
by Josh Leifker
This is a quick letter to the author of an article by Laura Haverty. Throughout this letter, I expressed my feelings towards the ongoing issues of women being sexually harassed and assaulted while attempting to get housing. I also related this topic to the writing topic that I have been working on for my senior seminar course for a full semester.
Dear Laura Haverty,

After reading your essay on women who face housing discrimination, I gained a much greater understanding of how women struggle with housing problems while also facing sexual harassment and assault. For my senior seminar course at Sonoma State University, I am conducting my own study on women working in low-wage occupations who want to advance to management or leadership positions. I was able to establish connections between our study and actually construct a better case within my own research topic while reading your post. Maternity leave times are one of the most typical concerns I observe in workplaces where women are discriminated against. I've read a lot of cases when corporations fired women because they were unable to work due to having a kid. This is utterly unacceptable and must be corrected and viewed through a much broader lens all throughout the world.

Sincerely,
Josh Leifker
