Don't Let Prejudice Get in The Way
What's gender inequality?
Where does gender inequality occur?
Gender discrimination happens in all countries around the world. According to the Gender Inequality Index, there is no country with total gender equality.
Extreme cases of gender inequality
Acid is thrown in the faces of girls who attend school in Afghanistan. There is a festival in India where boys go around breaking dolls made by their sisters or other young girls, to symbolize destroying the souls of the girls to ensure that they are not able to overthrow the male gender.
Problems faced in STTD (Gender inequality)
- When gender bias has been the norm for generations, it becomes a culture's tradition.
- When gender stereotypes are still being reinforced, gender inequality will continue to take place
- The gender who benefits from gender inequality (the males) would probably be unwilling to sacrifice those benefits for this cause.
We should also not promote the gender stereotypes, as it would only promote gender inequality. Children should be taught from young that each gender is equal. Young children are much easier to educate than adults as gender inequality is not the norm for them yet.
