Although the MDGs were created to raise awareness of the problem, a recent MDG Progress Report indicates that there still remains a huge gap to closing gender equality worldwide. Women are still treated like second-class citizens. The chances of finding a woman that is being oppressed or shut down are relatively high. This sudden gap of inequality can be induced in any way: forcing her to do something she doesn’t want to do, sexual violence, social or legal barriers, aborting an unwanted child or even get an equal salary. However some believe that women should not receive the privilege of gaining equality or
They educate women to speak out loud whatever they want to say instead of hiding in the shades. It is still being discussed whether feminism should be supported. Feminism has proved to help women in society in a lot of ways despite some people claiming it to be destructive. To begin with, one reason for allowing feminism is for women who are suffering.

A present-today advocate for women 's education is Malala Yousufzai. She got shot in the head by the Taliban because she advocated for women 's rights to education. It 's both refreshing to know that we have strong female advocates that are fighting for the rights of millions of women, but also disturbing that we are still fighting for those same rights over 200 years apart.
What if I told you that you run like a girl, talk like a girl and even think like a girl? Good afternoon 8c and Ms. Cosman. Today I will be speaking about gender equality and its progress throughout the years. These include the occurences from the past, events that are happening right now, and finally, predictions for the future. In the past women have had very little rights.
Equal Rights For Women And Girls News regarding women and girls getting dreadful treatments and unequal rights have been really common in the past, even until this day. UDHR states that ‘everyone has the right to an education’, but this statement has been denied to majority of the girls across the globe. It often occurs in least developed countries. There are many barriers for girls to get an education, and this issue has remained controversial. Poverty remains the main factor for determining whether a girl can gain access to an education and the cultural norms such as forcing the girls into a marriage, as well as living in a non-digital environment.
Frankly, I find it impossible to understand why people - women especially - wouldn 't believe in and support this movement that still has so far to go and so much to achieve because, as Maya Angelou said; "I 've been a female for a long time now. It 'd be stupid not to be on my own side." ‘Women are already equal. They have all the same opportunities that men have so what else could they possibly need?’ It is true that women have come a long way in society since the outbreak of the feminist movement in the 1800s by the suffragists and suffragettes, but we are still nowhere near gender equality. There is nowhere that this is more apparent than in the workplace.

Women empowerment is a difficult task in Indian society which is mainly patriarchal.
Women education in India has been a major preoccupation of both the government and civil society as educated women can play a very important role in the development of the country. Education is milestone of women empowerment because it enables them to responds to the challenges, to confront their traditional role and change their life. So that we can’t neglect the importance of education in reference to women empowerment, India is poised to become superpower, a developed country by 2020. The growth of women’s education in rural areas is very slow. This obviously means that still large womenfolk of our country are illiterate, weak, backward and exploited.” Education of women is the most powerful tool to change women’s position in society.
ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT OF WOMEN THROUGH GOVERNMENTAL SCHEMES -An overview of Indian Scenario ABSTRACT The empowerment of women is one of the central issues in the process of development of countries all over the world. The International Women’s Day celebrated on 8th march every year has become a day of demonstration for equal opportunity and solidarity. But the question arises how relevant is celebration of Women’s Day in view of the fact that their position in the society has not changed much.
