In the beginning of 21st century, women had access to higher education around the world with the exception of some Asian and African countries. In South Asia there are approximate 11 (Eleven) organizations which are working for women's education/teaching areas. Higher and technical educations are necessary for the efficient generation as well as for the knowledge. While the women participation in school education is much better but when it comes to higher education it decrease remarkably. Due to lack of higher and technical education women could not get high post jobs in administration and engineering sector.
A Reference Material. Applying RBA in the Project Cycle, p.11. Inequality for Women “Women and men are not created equal. They each have their God given strengths, focused on their responsibilities for procreation and family viability. Those differences are not easily dismissed… however those differences do not condone gender discrimination in society, and certainly not in the workplace.” (Malkin, 2005) Women mostly have unequal access to health services and education, face glass ceiling at work place.
As I recall, I did agree on the argument Ehrenreich proposed but not to the full extent. I somehow disagree with the fact that being ladylike can’t allow women to be as successful and recognized as men are. Ladylike women have the same influential power as tough ones but it is expressed in a different manner. Ehrenreich defined the term ladylikeness as a “persistent servility masked as niceness” (Par.4), ignoring other ways of anticipation for this term. In my opinion, being ladylike is a silent but deadly approach a woman might use to influence others and eventually reach her purpose.
Majority said that these people who consider her to be empowered suffers from lack of awareness regarding such issues, others said that people are confused and need some serious help otherwise people like Qandeel Baloch wouldn’t have had become famous in first place. Also stated, women empowerment is more about prolonging and encouraging womanhood for better, Qandeel was just practicing freedom. Last but not the least, few respondents said that she was an attention seeker who gained fame due to her expression of desires to celebrities like Imran khan and Shahid Afridi. She cannot be a symbol of women empowerment since she is not the ideal person who sets a good example for the other girls of the society. I also reflected upon the killing of Qandeel Baloch by asking that whether her killing shall be labeled as HONOR killing or
23. Women’s education is now very popular among the Meo’s. Literacy rate and the higher education are quite rampant. 24. Low literacy level, educational backwardness of the Meo women is not because of strict attitudes of their male counterpart or their intelligence and inability to learn, but due to lack of schools and colleges in Mewat region.
Gender is not only about fairness and equity, it is also about economic empowerment and includes many political, social and cultural dimensions. For decades now many countries around the globe have made substantial progress towards gender equality in fields of education and work. Nonetheless there is still a gender gap, women still earn less than men, are less likely to make it to the top of the job ladder and spend probably more of their final years in poverty. Gender inequality means wasting years of funding girls and young females in education, this implies less essential contribution that woman make to the economy. Making the best out of their talents, whether man or woman ensures that all have an equal chance to be involved at home and in the workplace, thereby strengthen their well-being and that of society.
As fifty percent of the population, women represent half of the world’s potential in all fields of progress. Albeit, gender inequality still persists on a global scale, stagnating economic growth. Thus, unequal access to economic resources and education, as well as gender violence and trafficking are all factors which have shaped the world’s current social dynamics by stereotyping women as inferior. Lack of opportunities as well as biases within the workforce are the main difficulties obstructing women from contributing to the economy. In terms of education attainment, employed women exceed employed men among those 25 and over: 34.9 percent of men hold at least a bachelor’s degree compared to 37.1 percent of women (DOL 2011).
First Draft: Gender Discrimination and Inequality Christina Mugugu Mupanda Chamberlain College of Nursing Gender Discrimination and Inequality Women, in general, are classified as weak people. Our society, working places, business and societies , workplaces, business and in our culture have the same influence. Today people are focusing on gender equality of which few of the are getting the attention. Decades ago women were more discriminated than of today.

Despite divergent methodologies and standpoints, feminists accept the dominant view in contemporary feminism that “gender is fixed, determined and foundational” (Cosgrove, 2003). Feminists have used meta-analysis to challenge the stereotype of girls being less proficient in math than boys and in differences in aggressive behavior. However, despite research demonstrating the lack of such gender differences in mathematics or aggressive behavior, the gendered stereotypes have remained and are perpetuated by the media. This review suggests that the stereotypical perception of males and females have not benefitted from the feminist empiricist research. The goal of feminist psychologists to bring about social change has not been fruitful to that extent.
