The state in which the access to rights and opportunities is unaffected by gender is yet to be accomplished. While we have achieved exceeding progress towards gender equality and women’s empowerment under the Millenium Development Goals, girls and women are continually exposed to discrimination and violence in every part of the world.
The gender equality development gold argues that every human being deserves to reach her or his full potential. However, the problem is, girls and boys become acquainted to the idea of gender inequality from the very beginning. They experience it in their homes and communities every day – in textbooks, in media and among men and women who provide their support. This leads girls and boyis into thinking that particular duties are women’s and others men’s, thereby curtailing generational change and narrowing girls’ ambitions.
To change this attitude, it is important to provide education to all. This can help educate boys and girls on the rightful manner towards both genders, as well as how to improve gender equality.
