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
The reason why women could not live a single life was because there would be no way they could make a living. This is why, “Women in the Victorian Era” explains “The reason women went into prostitution was because other jobs for women were limited and didn't make nearly as much money.” As for those who wanted to live alone, they had to choose degrading jobs such as prostitution. This is unfortunate how corrupt society was, having no respect for women. The image above is a clear example that displays the gender inequality in the Victorian Era. Here we can see women being subjugated under men, forced to obey their husbands.
The study again realized the existing social reality that violence against women are primarily gender-based, embedded in different layers of our society. This analysis shows that there are multiple causes, social factors of violence against women involved in sex working profession, as well as certain prescriptions from the participants and also came up that how to develop resistance. One of the fundamental causes of violence against women is in every sense the unequal power equation between men and women, the patriarchal logic that govern the society lead to discrimination. This research unfolded that being women in general and a part of the ‘tabooed’ community sex workers face sheer violation, for example, most of them reported that ‘rehabilitation to mainstream society’ almost becomes impossible to them. The Gender violence is so deep rooted in a woman’s lifetime, that freedom from the threat of harassment, battering, and sexual assault is a concept that most of woman have a hard time imagining because violence is such an extensive part of the culture and their spirits.
Sadly, women are taught that they must rely on men because they are too weak to be independent. This creates gender inequality which can be described as unequal power relations, which leads to discrimination based on gender. Gender inequality has made it possible for gender-based violence to exist and persist. Thus, concluding that our society
The concept of Cruelty is as old as the society is. The cruelty against women in marriage institution is not only restricted to any one socio – economic, ethnic, religion, caste or race. The problem of cruelty against women is not only related to law but it is a social issue also. The concept of equality between male and female was almost hidden to us before the enactment of Constitution. It was believed that women are inferior to men from birth.
In many parts of the world, there are still violence to women, unequal education conditions for women and many discrimination in the work places, law and etc. I would like to conclude my paper by saying if women are raised and treated equally like men in their society, they would not shy away from the
1.1 Background of the study Since the beginning of time, traditional gender stereotyping has been carrying a strong impact and influence on the division of roles between men and women, at home, in the workplace and in society at large. Scott (1986) defines gender as “a constitutive element of social relationships based on perceived differences between sexes and a primary way to signifying relationships of power. In many differing aspects, gender stereotypes have wide-ranging effects in society and are considered as being detrimental to the lives of both, women and men. They restrict people’s freedom and limit their choices. In 2012, a report on Eliminating Gender Stereotypes in the EU, which was presented in the European Parliament released that women are still depicted as the ones who handle the house, looking after their children and husband whilst men are depicted as the breadwinners.
Gender Inequality The society is embodied with the culture in which men and women have been segregated. The rules and norms set up by the patriarchal society which makes women inferior or weaker to men which in result give rise to gender biased society which turn men and women [sex] into masculine and feminine [Gender]. The word gender is not natural but man-made. According to Narayan, a woman has to discharge the duties of a wife and a mother for her role in life to be self-fulfilling because he firmly believes in the old school of thought. The name of the protagonist itself reflects the glimpse of Hindu mythology.
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.
ASSESSING MANJU KAPUR’S FEMINISTIC EXPRESSIONS THROUGH THE READINGS OF PATRIARCHAL CULTURE Abstract: The patriarchal societies have a great influence on families especially on women who continuously strive for their independence in the modern era. The globalization and technology preaches women to be superior rather than to be inferior beings. But age old traditions and aeons of suppression don’t allow them to come out of male domination and at the same time cannot agree to accept their oppression. Women suffering from this kind of repressions come out with various problems. It’s rather difficult for them to revolt against traditional methods as they will be contradicted by the society.
