Gender Equality-Bridging the Gap

February 19,2019    by Mandar Lande

Gender equality also known as sexual equality, that is to give equal opportunities and equal, fair and treatment to all the human beings irrespective of the gender. The belief that one gender is intrinsically superior to another should be put to rest. Equal status should be provided to the humans depending on their caliber and not on other basis. Gender discriminations is also punishable and is considered to be an offence of the highest order.

Gender discrimination mainly fosters various types of sexual violence and hence should not be practiced. Both men and women should rise above the limitations set by rigid gender notes, by stereotypes and prejudices and maintain gender neutrality.

UNICEF says gender equality "means that women and men, and girls and boys, enjoy the same rights, resources, opportunities and protections. It does not require that girls and boys, or women and men, be the same, or that they be treated exactly alike."

Sexism can affect any one, but it majorly affects the women and girls; hence to achieve the goal of gender equality harmful practices like human trafficking, femicide, sexual abuse and oppression tactics should be eliminated.

Gender equality can be maintained efficiently on when the root problems causing differences are addressed effectively. Gender integration should be ensured to all and followed in order to maintain the equal status of all the genders.
