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.According to Wikipedia…..Gender equality means the measurable equal description of women and men.
But gender equality has much more value than the definition given in wikipedia. Since the Stone Age, it has been imprinted on human mind that men are superior than women; men have all the rights in the world whereas a woman’s opinions and rights reach out only till the kitchen. Women are vulnerable, due to their body type or their sympathetic nature.
In brief, WOMAN WERE ANT AND MAN WERE BOOT Slowly but surely changes came. “Men” became more sensitive towards women and women started realising their low position in the society and fought for their rights. Although, we cannot deny the fact that the concept of gender equality is still not followed in many parts of the world. No matter how much you try to educate them, these people would not change only because their mind has been hardwired to feel superior.
Since the education system has upgraded its standards allot has changed but still we cannot say man and woman sits on the same table of equal rights.In many parts of India, even after great civilization, women are not considered as equal as men. And here the reason is the genetic information. The sex of the child is still considered the responsibility of women, and due to which they are brutalised for the birth of girl child. Creating a new life is the responsibility of both the parents, then why for its sex only women are responsible. Also, on the birth of girl child, she does not even get the equal chance as the boy to take birth and live her life and then show her capability.
She is first judged on her sex and later killed. Are we still talking about equality? In India, we should first talk about giving the opportunity. The opportunity to live.Gender equality not only limits to exercise women rights in professional world but also in society as well. Rules should be for everyone and not gender basis after all the talk about equality, why are the simple things like clothes and hairstyles gender specific? Why do people grimace and fret over a woman with a buzz cut or a man in a skirt? I cannot help but wonder who decided that pink is for girls and blue is boys! Why can’t we stop being so conservative and understand that equality reaches beyond civil rights and learn to accept people and their decisions, with open heart and mind.Gender equality can and should be applicable in literally everything! It will be hard but nothing is impossible.
