In today’s society, women still have fewer rights than men even though we are still trying to fix this problem.
A study by experts states that women only have less than 70% of the rights men enjoy, mostly exceptional opportunities. These differences vary from country to countries, but based on WEF researchers, it will take about 100 years to eliminate these disparities at the current rate.
It might seem intimidating when you read about it, but the good news is that the world is more aware of this problem, and a lot of places across the globe are trying to fight all types of discrimination like gender inequality. Society is fighting for equal rights, and it has now become stronger than before
What Are the Things That Should Be Done in An Equal Manner?
- Share Household Chores and Child Care Equally
Household chores and child care are the responsibility of both adults. Now ask yourself:is everything is equally done in your home? Childcare is still mainly done by women in most parts of the world. There have been reports that women still do unpaid work of taking care of children compared to men in rural areas compared to men.
- Watch for Different Signs of Domestic Abuse
Get some support and help if you can find a friend or another person suffering from domestic abuse. Violence is not only physical aggression, but also verbal attacks or intimidating behaviors. However, these things happen all at one go. If you experience this happening, report it to the police!
- Support Women and Parents
People responsible for their teenagers and their children will require support in every part of society. Giving a spare seat to a pregnant woman, installing changing rooms for young children in all the bathrooms in shopping malls also support young women. Companies should also grant maternity and paternity leave that has to be given proper actions all the time.
- Reject Racist and Chauvinist Attitudes
Do not make any comments that demean women or humiliate women, the LGBT community, or other minority groups. Do not keep quiet if you hear these types of derogatory words as well. Tell these people to stop these insults.
- Listen and Reflect
One of the most significant issues to get rid of prejudice is that people who already fail to recognize this problem exist. There are many stereotypes and different notions on these topics, which will lead to further problems if this idealogy passes down to the next generation. You have to pay attention to all your thoughts and assumptions and know that nobody is immune to these types of comments, and we should not do the same to another person that is one of these categories.
We should be aware of these gender disparities among ourselves, so we should make ourselves immune to fight these disparities and let the public know these notions.
