Sexual Discrimination For as long a humanity has kept records, women seem to have been victims of sexual discrimination. In other words, women have been raped, abused, underappreciated, and generally mistreated in society based on the fact that they are women. The issue of gender discrimination is widespread around the World and millions of women suffer from sexual discrimination from any of its various form daily. Sexual segregation prevents women from passing citizenship to their children, to get a divorce, even when they are abused by their partner, and to get a proper education in some countries. Thus women suffer at the hands of a patriarchal society where they have virtually no rights.
Racism And Its Impact on Society Racism is a problem in today’s society, it can cause low self esteem, stop others from achieving goals, it can cause fights, and offend many. “Racism is the belief that a particular race is superior or inferior to another, that a person’s social and moral traits are predetermined by his or her inborn biological characteristics”(ADL).

So stigma and discrimination can trap people in a cycle of illness. 5 The situation is exacerbated by the media.

In the same manner that people give more importance to people, who are physically and mentally whole over the person who is physically and mentally disadvantaged. Normally, those people with marked disability are treated worthless in the Society and are regarded as a big burden in life that many do not give them importance or attention anymore that they continue to experience physical and mental regression. I understand how it feels to become a victim of “Racism/Judgmentalism” and “Sexism/Preferentialism,” because I myself have experienced prejudice and discrimination inside and outside the church being a woman and a citizen of the third world country.

Paying close attention to an abuser's health is contracting blood borne illnesses such as hepatitis and HIV/AIDS through injection drug use and the sharing of needles. Economically, the impact of drug abuse in businesses whose employees abuse drugs can also be significant. While many drug abusers are unable to attain or hold down employment.
It is a form of discrimination, social injustice, inequality between men and women, and denial of human rights. However, this type of violence is deep-rooted in social structure.

Yes, I think racism is a serious problem in Canadian society. Most of the groups that are mostly the target or victims of racism are Muslim/Arabs, First Nation/Aboriginals, Blacks, East Indians, Asians, Jewish, Hispanic, and other race.
