Why do women have to work overtime in order to obtain the equal amount of pay and provide for their family? Many women had an issue since the late 1840’s and it stills occurs today across the globe. Some men claim that women make more than them, while others admit of making more than a woman. Over all the women 's rights movement is primarily wanting the political, social, and economic status of women equal to a men (Women’s Rights Movement). Women want the ability to achieve the same opportunities of a man in the household, educational field, and in the working environment.
Jane Austen’s Persuasion demonstrates true-to-life examples of how both women and men accept their “role” in society, accept and expect it. Gender inequality can be defined as a lack of equal treatment between sexes, and the imposition of norms put in place by society (According to definitions in the English Encyclopedia). In Persuasion, the female characters Mary, Anne and Elizabeth are all involved in the complex concept of marriage. Anne, the only daughter that has not married, is faced with pressure by
According to the human development report , 1997 , It stated that "No society treats its women as well as its men". The issues of equality in the workplace and affirmative action have been hovering over the working world 's head for many years now.

Equality should be achievied , not only because it 's fair and it 's the right thing , but also because equality is vitally important to the productions of nations. So It cannot be denied that gender inequality in workplaces is the most negatively effective on women , because at workplaces , employees should be treated on how they work not either they 're men or women.
This has been the male text. Even memory and oblivion are justified from a patriarchal per¬spective. However Shakuntala's story varies and she asserts that she had chosen not to produce the ring, the token the king had left with her. She was convinced that the king had known many women like her and left them to suffer and pine for him. So, rather than beg love from one who had erased her from his life and memory, she chooses to go away.
In the past, there is no doubt that women were being treated unfairly and live as an inferior to men who count themselves as a superior. Women were not allowed to get education nor had a chance to go to work in the society because they believe that women are born to complete indoor work likes doing the housework or looking after children. However, as the times have passed women nowadays have an equal right just like the men do. Therefore, we strongly support that gender equality policies at the work place should be supported based on a number of reasons including receiving the positive outcome of business, following the Gender Equality Act and promoting Feminism. First of all, promoting gender equality between man and women at the workplace has given a positive overall outcome to business sector .
Domestic labour – housewives Women have always been allocated as economically dependent on men. They have also been destined to domestic work, either at staying home, being a housewife or either by doing a job that has to do with domestic work. In addition, even employers have the same views of work for women and when it comes to employability, they tend to hire men for jobs that have nothing to do with domestic work. However, the real fact is that a woman who has a salary can manage her life in a better way than a woman who is dependent on a man. The real problem about women, who are actually in domestic work, is that this type of labour is often undervalued and this is shown by the fact that when they are housewives and perform a type
In one article, the author mentioned the inequality of men and women that were shown in advertising. “Despite the many people’s desire to strive toward greater gender equality and smash antiquated conceptions that ‘men’ and ‘women’ are to serve distinct roles in society, popular media seem insistent on portraying gender in very ‘traditional’ ways” (Andy 2). As it is said in the quotation, media and advertising often show the traditional roles of men and women even though now that the society is changing. Traditional masculine and feminine body shapes are emphasized on advertisements. On most ads, women are skinny while men are strong.
However, Aslam exposes the subservient characteristics of its female characters through their actions and conversation to the male members of the society that is an indirect allusion to the men that they are supposed little bit superior to women in certain degrees: “Like everyone else in the town Maulana’s wife addressed him ‘Maulana ji’; she has never used the word ‘tu’ (Season 2008: 11). The word ‘Like everyone else’ signifies that almost all South Asian women act in similar ways and expected to be subservient women. Nadeem Aslam explores his female characters through their devotion and dedication towards their household duties, constantly kept in unchanging atmosphere makes them typical masters in their domestic chores: “She tested the temperature of the baking- iron with the pinch of flour- it turned brown immediately, the smell of signed starch spreading through the small room” (P. 11). In both of his novels, Aslam has portrayed women with the continuing struggle to maintain their traditions and culture irrespective of the changing norms of the modern world. Daily rites and rituals are practiced in accordance with the typical Pakistani culture.
“Human experience, for centuries, has been synonymous with masculine experience with the result that the collective image of humanity has been one sided and incomplete. Woman has not been defined as a subject in her own right but merely as an entity that concerns man either in his life or his fantasy life” ( Singh-7) The male centered view of human life, which goes on to privilege one gender over another, has led to an inability to work towards a holistic development. An increasing awareness of the injustices done to women gradually gave rise to the feminist movement The woman is the backbone of a family. Though, men considered to be the bread winner of the family, without women a family is incomplete. In India, the women were
