One of the causes of gender inequality in India is the domination of men over women. Men exploit women and this is not something that happens now, but this is a phenomenon that has been happening since a long time ago. Some people have other opinions about this topic, for example, some people think that women must be in custody of her father when she is a child, in the one of her husband when married, and when she is old, she must be in the custody of her son, this will also happen if she is a widow, she will never be treated as an independent
Sexism can affect any gender, but it is particularly documented as affecting women and girls (Wikipedia, 2016). Gender discrimination exists in many aspects. For example, gender bias in employment, education, and the legal system (Stuart Oskamp, 2000). However, the gender discrimination in the family is still a hot issue. In the patrilineal family, the family was only defined by male, this family system led to the strong son preference and discrimination against women(李树茁，1998).
In the Victorian Era, women hardly had any rights from having jobs to abiding by a dress code. Before they were even married, they experienced prejudice . According to the “The Working and Middle Classes in Victorian Era England”, women were seen (by men) as emotional and unstable to the point where “they were incapable of making rational decisions.” This was completely unfair for women because the fact that they raised kids and managed domestic life showed their responsibility proved that they could make rational decisions. This denies their basic human rights because women have the freedom to think and make decisions. Once a woman marries, all of her property would go to her husband and she must live under his shadow.
Some followers of the Hadith support this because it mentions, “Women are not suited for positions of power.” However, by having women not able to receive an education, they cannot as easily find work, are unable to provide for themselves and their families, and are dependent upon their husbands. This can force women to marry men and stay with them when they do not wish to because they rely on them for the income. On top of that, the 25% of women who are working, do not have the same job opportunities as there are many “male only” jobs. Furthermore, they are getting paid way less than men. The Muslims world’s governments need to change and support women empowerment by allowing women to advance in their careers, be able to get high authoritative positions, and start paying women equally.
Many People don’t know how awful gender inequality is. People may think that it is being handled but its just spreading. Women don 't have as much rights as men do. Yes, it has been better than the old days, but its still atrocious in business and at home and in some countries, women can 't even walk outside without a man. This paper will be talking about when gender inequality started to happen, why genders can’t be equal, what will happen in the long run (will genders ever be equal?)
Sexism is the prejudice, stereotyping, or discrimination, typically against women, on the basis of sex (Dictionary.com). Examples of this would be the pay gap between women and men, and how men get paid more for doing the same jobs as women. Some say that sexism in our country is not relevant any more, but that is not the case. Today, sexism still affects how various peopletreat each other, and how children are educated and raised. Within modern America, children are consistently put into roles and expected to stay within them; instances of this often happen within preschools, elementary schools, and even within the home.
Also some women reject the idea to be a mother and to raise children. The personal thinking control women in many cases. Although women need nowadays equality with men for example they need men to raise with them the children and to they want to go out to work as the men. ( Ntoimo and Abanihe, 2011). e- Modern lifestyle: " Intolerance for early marriage, violence, infidelity" are big reasons that found to determinants of spinsterhood.
Women in Southeast Asia are less empowered than men due to societal constraints. The gender inequalities are a reality for women when it comes to “access to education and work opportunities and access to fair and timely justice system, as well as attainment of human and social rights,” (Global Report of Trafficking in Persons). Due to prevailing gender hierarchies, women and girls are seen as burdens on the family. Women and girls typically leave the family when they are married and integrate themselves within their new husband’s family. Poorer families may view their female children as a burden, financially and emotionally raising a child who will eventually leave the family and not take care of the parents during old age (Panter-Brick).
Gender inequality in education is one of the major flaws that Pakistani education entails that is a threat to development in Pakistan. It is universally believed that education is one of the basic rights of every human being. However, girls suffer exclusion and disadvantage in Pakistani education system. The illiteracy rate in Pakistan twice as high as for males and the number of educational institutions, private educational institutes and available education facilities are not equally provided (Khan 78). So such inequalities oppress women and they lose opportunities like less accessibility to education, become dependent on males socially and economically.
These include the perception that girls are economic burden on their families, and hence the ‘burden’ is passed on to their future husbands. The idea of impurity is also attached to the sexuality of women; hence, to restrict any ‘improper’ sexual activities, young girls and boys are married at an early age. Dowry which is a menace, also adds to the major reasons that force poor families to do injustice with their daughters. This maybe because as girls grow older dowry issues also increase; hence, to avoid higher dowries parents marry their daughters earlier. For girls, educational opportunities are also limited or restricted; therefore, they become more vulnerable to many cruelties and forced marriages.
