There are many injustices going around the world especially injustice against women. For instance, there are lots of “old fashion generation” still think that women born to serve men and they don’t believe in gender equality. In fact, women are becoming more important than any of the periods in human’s history and they do contribute lots thought our world. Nowadays, there are many countries provide laws to protect women, but in some particular countries women still don’t have the rights to guarantee their own values. Although, people are more open minded compare to the past few decades, we can see that women are still treated unfairly in many places today especially in domestic violence against women, discrimination against women and workplace inequality First and foremost, among issues affecting women the most, domestic violence or intimate partner
As Anita Katyar said : Physical violence is not the only form of violence women in India face. In rural parts, women, especially those who belong to the Dalit community, are often denied land rights, and their children, especially girls, bear the brunt of this discrimination. They are denied proper schooling and health facilities (“Violent against women,” n.d.). Dalit women are rejected from land right. They have to face the worst from caste system.
Women and girls are in sex trafficking rings, sex bondage, raped, and denied the same employment as men. Women are rejected entrance to be educated, political participation, and some are imprisoned in battles where rape is performed as an armament of war. Everywhere in the nation, women have to make profoundly private options in their isolated lives. According to Andrews “These movements have allowed women to be disruptive and threatening to elites, which prompts a rapid response-typically either concessions and/or repression (p.
Gender Equality: “refers to the equal rights, responsibilities and opportunities of women and men and girls and boys. Gender equality implies that the interests, needs and priorities of both women and men are taken into consideration, recognizing the diversity of different groups of women and men.” (Interplast, 2013) 5. Gender-based violence: “violence that is directed against a person on the basis of gender. It constitutes a breach of the fundamen1tal right to life, liberty, security, and dignity, equality between women and men, non-discrimination and physical and mental integrity.” (European Institute For Gender equality, 2014) 2) Situations where I have experienced typical gender stereotyping were when the men in the family blatantly said that men should not cook, or work in the
This highlights how stereotypes of women always wanting to have children or that women should settle down have limited many women’s ability to get a job. Furthermore, I disagree with these stereotypes, because they lead to frequent disrespect towards women. As I described, I was taught that only ladies would earn respect, and this stereotype has kept me and many others from doing things that may seem crude for a woman. This has influenced everything from the way I dress to when I speak, as I do not want to lose respect for being seen as promiscuous or
It is also found in much of the discussion of sexual harassment and gender violence. Compared with “sex role” theory, this approach more readily addresses issues of power. However, categorical theory too has difficulty grasping any of the complexities of gender, such as gendered violence within either of the two main categories, men and women. The categorical approach leaves little space for the interplay of gender with class and race, and misses such issues as the importance of unionism for working-class women, or community organizing for indigenous women. It readily leads to ethnocentric generalizations about women and men, which miss the importance of the global structures of exploitation and
All around the world, genders are being discriminated by the opposite gender. The thing is that we all know that it is wrong but we have continued to do it for years. Gender based discrimination is a very critical issue in social discrimination. Men and women always comprise the two halves of the population in every society. However, the rights and opportunities afforded to women have never been on the same level with the rights and opportunities accorded to men of the said societies.
Young girls have less access to education, nutrition and healthcare than their male counterparts, which limits their opportunities. This sexism may go as far as to encourage gender-based abortions and gender-based violence, such as rape and female genital mutilation. To a certain extent, it is socially acceptable for men to assume some feminine roles and for women to assume some masculine roles, especially in our modern society. However, those who step out of what is ‘acceptable’ may be ostracised. For example, women are considered “bad mothers” if they do not play an active role in their children’s lives, but the same standards do not apply to men.
Gender inequality concerns both women and men and has a strong impact on their daily lives. Traditionally gender equality rules have been considered to be mainly as a “women’s issue” – as women have been a driving force behind gender equality approaches and struggles. This view has contributed to the awareness that women are the only ones who will benefit from a more equally and advanced society. In reality, men also benefit from gender equality as they also face gender- specific matters, such as lower life probability, bad well-being, inferior education levels and rigid norms. “I have seen young men suffering from mental instability, unable to ask for help for fear it would make them look less ‘macho’” (Watson, E.
The Criminal Law (Amendment) Act 2013 to deal with the rape cases in India. Societal violence against women: The communities and societies in India in most of the places are bound up with patriarchal normative universe from which women could hardly get true justice. The religious communities, village communities or the artificial communities like professional bodies are hardly epitome of equality between men and women. Quite often the religious communities have made the life of the women worse by forcing them to adopt conservative practices that are harmful to women. Constitutional Provisions on Women's Rights: The constitution of India confers special rights upon women.
