- Gender Equality-Is it really equal? - October 29, 2020
Gender inequality is not only an issue of Women but also it is an issue of Human. I am a professor by profession and writer by passion, not at all feminist. But strongly believe in equality.
According to me Gender equality is when people of all genders have equal rights, responsibilities and opportunities. Everyone is affected by gender inequality, it includes men,women,transgender etc.
The overall objective of gender equality in a society should be where men and women enjoy same opportunities, rights and obligations in all spheres of life.
Gender inequality still exists within the household, workplace and society. Top burning issues of gender inequality in the work-place.
- Unequal pay.
- Sexual harassment.
- Women are promoted less often than men.
- Fear of asking to be paid what women worth.
- Due to family issue if career gap takes place then its really a tough fight for a women to start a fresh with good package.
Gender inequality in household chores:-
Gender inequality in the family has mostly been recognized. An unequal involvement in household chores by women & men is very common. I have come across a statistical survey which says less than 10% men in India takes part in household work and childcare.Inequality in the home especially with regard to household work, childcare reflects larger gender inequalities, because women throughout the world also perform household work and childcare at the end of their paid work, it’s like their 2nd shift, but as far decision making is concerned in the family ,men always get priority.
May be it is not happening everywhere but it is happening mostly around us.
Gender inequality in Society:
We are in 20th century, but still women are being accused for all these like RAPE, CHILDLESS MARRIAGE, DIVORCE,DON’T GIVE BIRTH TO MALE CHILD, INDEPENDENT AND UNMARRIED Etc.
May be it is not happening everywhere but all these are happening around us.
Still all these? Why?
To conclude this I would like to say Gender equality prevents violence against women & girls. When a women support each other ,incredible things are bound to happen.So,it is the time to stand beside each other. Kudos to every men who respect and support women.
Respect Women. I am proud to be a woman and salute the spirit of womanhood.
Give us some sunshine,
Give us some rain,
Give us a chance
to grow up and live once again..
