In imperial China, women assumed a relatively subordinate position to men. In Chinese, if you want to refer both boys and girls simultaneously, you have to use the Chinese character of ‘he’ instead of choosing ‘she’ as the pronoun. Have you notice this indicates gender inequality? Gender inequality or also known as gender stratification, is the unequal distribution of a society’s wealth, power, and privilege between females and males. It is erroneous, impenetrable and abhorrent. Unfortunately, there are still thousands of related issues happening around us every day. Women experience gender inequality in stereotyped, occupations and different environments, we need to take action to address this problem, to make the world better.

I’m going to tell you some data and how we are going to fix it. One caveat is my data are very depressing and I want to apologise in advance, for putting you in a really sad mood. First, females are still noticeably absent on-screen in film. Across 800 movies and 35,205 speaking characters, less than a third of all roles go to girls and women. Less than a third! There 's been no change from 2007 to 2015, and if you compare the results to a small sample of films from 1946 to 1955, there 's been no change in over a half of a century. Over a half of a century! In addition to the data you just heard, females are far more likely to be sexualised in film than their male counterparts. Lots of female had experienced being sex assault during their career, like a young actress who is into this area for a few years, and had not get very famous yet, some directors or producers will take advantage of it to sexual harassment her. You may wonder what could we do as an audience? You can see more films by, for and about women, we have to support them. It might mean scrolling down a little further online to find a film by a female director. Or it may mean go to a cinema and see those kind of films. Right?

This women could just say to the police that she was not on purpose then guess what? The police will believe her and just warned her to be careful next time. To make a change, the law of this part could be better and the police should treat men and women equally for the same situation. We can all contribute a little bit and make the end of gender inequality. Gender equality is achieved when women and men enjoy the same rights and opportunities across all sectors of society, including economic participation and decision-making, and when the different behaviours, aspirations and needs of women and men are equally valued and favoured. Ask yourself ‘if not me, who? If not now, when?’ We must make changes so that we can achieve gender equality in the future! Everyone is affected by gender equality, so why don’t you involve yourself in? Thank
