Plight, a dangerous, difficult, or otherwise unfortunate situation. The plight of people across time and across the world to achieve an education is an enormous battle between not just the climate, but other people. Frederick Douglass and Malala Yousafzai were two of the most influential people (in my opinion) both in the 21st century and the 1800s. Along with the Women’s International Center we can take a look into how hard it was and still is to get an education.
From the world having no civil rights for women at all to women being equally or more educated than men, the scenario at workplace has not undergone a drastic change which can be concluded from the above discussion and statistics. There is no doubt that women have the skills to lead in the workplace. In United States, girls are increasingly out-performing boys in the classroom, earning about 57 percent of the undergraduate and 60 percent of the masters’ degree. In India men still outnumber women in higher education, but women are increasingly outnumbering men at some elite institution. But this has not lead to a substantial progress for women. The real question here is why? Equality in education has not lead to equal treatment at workplace for both genders. There are various obstacles or barriers that a woman has to face while trying to make a place professionally because integrating professional and personal aspirations proved far more challenging than imagined which lead to less value of women.
From an American standpoint, there seems to be no issue in terms of a gender gap between girls and boys when it comes to schooling. For many years, young girls in the United States have been ensured an education that is just as effective and encompassing as that of young boys. In fact, it seems like the American school system may be now benefitting girls more than it does boys. However, this is not the case with all countries in the world. While the gender gap in education has been closed in many countries, including the United States, there still exist some places in the world where the state of education and literacy levels for girls and women is still desolate; this gap prevents young women from receiving the proven benefits
Finally, at the college level, the cumulative effect of the academic achievement gap between boys and girls becomes very evident already when one is solely looking at the higher proportion of females who graduate from college. In the introduction, it was already explained how more and more women began to attain college education, because of their changing ‘role’, the acceptance and legality of using the pill as birth control, the shift towards later marriage, and the increasing consensus among women of the importance of college education for better paid jobs. This in combination with the emergence of feminist groups that pressured the government and companies on creating more equality, resulted in an environment in which women could catch up.
Education is vital for everyone. It is a door of great opportunity not only confined in working fields but it cultivates the most significant aspect in life in oneself that is, knowledge. People who succeed are those who go through the door of opportunity and face an abundance of challenges and trials to shape their mind and thinking process in order to see the world in multiple perspectives.
The United Kingdom (UK) is a one of the developed country in the world and has the world’s fifth largest economy. It’s one of the wealthiest nation in the world were 53%of the population is women. Dose being the 5th largest economy makes its people wealthy or dose living in one of the wealthiest country make its citizens to have quality and discrimination free life? Surprisingly the picture is quite different. Almost
The three major social categories, which are race, class and gender, are highly considered and which plays a huge role in contributing in major decision towards inequality. Some groups have more advantages than others due to their race, class or gender. First of all, race plays a major role in inequality an individual categorises differently, yet race offers many privileges and advantages as opportunities are given to certain race group. For example, lets considerer whites, Hispanic and blacks all these race groups are offered different opportunities which are not equal some may be paid less, treated differently, given a job or a position at their work just because they are part of certain race group.
According to Jacobs (1996), literatures based on gender inequalities “often treats all aspects of education disadvantaging women”. However one could argue against Jacobs’ statement that women today are seen to achieve more advantages in education and a reversal in roles between men and women in education is evident in some areas (Buchmann, Diprete and McDaniel, 2007). Women can and do achieve success in education as well as men do. The preconceived idea that females achieve less than their male counterparts has been argued against by studies showing that female motivation and determination to succeed in education equals or often surpasses male achievement (Mickelson, 1989). According to Treiman and Terrell (1975) women’s status in society was based upon the success of their husband and therefore education was seen as less important for women to achieve than their spouses, education was thought to be a luxury for women rather than a right like it was thought to be for men. This concept of education lead women to believe the education they received was a reward (Mickelson, 1989). The traditional assumption of a woman’s lack of right for an education can lead women to allow themselves to value their opportunities in their academics. This concept brought about a role reversal for males and females in education, beginning in the 1990’s
Far too long women have endured discrimination throughout the world. Obstacles to women’s equality with men in all backgrounds did not vanish even there are many constitutional and legal provisions were made for women to made them strong and equal. Women stayed neglected in the standard of the predominant procedure of development; just minor gains were accomplished.
The infamous gap in education, which is a separation of both genders - the males and the females- is built upon a set of ideas that were constructed overtime by the society which we live in. This gap in the education system is an issue, which has not yet been resolved in many countries around the world. Even though women have demonstrated that they are capable of performing just as well as their male peers they are being discriminated against within their education systems. To be able to provide equal education services to women, people would need to change their own mindset by educating themselves and the future generations through elaborate programs that spread awareness about the education of women. Their right to an equal education is a
It is difficult to omit the issue of gender inequalities as well as comparative studies when studying issues dealing with women in SSA. Studies argue that gender inequality spread widely in societies for many years, although scarcely generalized, almost all cultures have to some extent experienced control by men (Goldberg, 1993; Rosaldo & Lamphere, 1974; Sanderson, Heckert & Dubrow, 2005). The only variation is the degree of which gender inequality exercised in each society (Sanderson, Heckert & Dubrow, 2005).
Why is there an occupational segregation of work along gender lines? What are the different characteristics of “male professions” and “female professions?
Gender discrimination is a discrimination based on gender. It has rising issue mostly in Asian countries where people bounded to their cultures and customs. Gender discrimination has immensely increased as men have given preference over women in countries. Gender discrimination has become a serious issue in most countries as women are completely being cut off from rights and facilities. They are provided less food, less education, less pay grades as compared to boys and men. Women do not have freedom to make decisions. They are not allowed to get education. They have always been discriminated in families, workplace, and houses. Gender discrimination has been causing problems for women for past many years and this should be tackled
There are many different kinds of inequalities:gender inequalities, inequalities for countries, inequalities for LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) people, which is what I am going to focus on in this essay, I decided to choose this topic because I think it is really unfair to not like someone or to give them different rules because of their sexuality and I want to see the different opinions and reasons of homophobic (Against LGBT) people.
The gap with respect to the gender gap in the higher educational degree is one of the troublesome issues for the academic domains (Buchmann, DiPrete, & McDaniel, 2007). Worldwide, for example, as per one of the surveys, there is 14% gap found when it comes to boys against girls, who pursuit higher studies. In fact, many other studies throw new light on the subsequent potential issues due to this gap, such as improper distribution of workforce, salary disparities in boys and girls, discrimination, inadequate staffing and so
