In the 21st century, many people believe that we have overcome the obstacle of gender inequality and evolved into a society of fairness and righteousness. As many know, females can be just as proficient and qualified as males at any task. Though some efforts to off-set this gender imbalance is in place, it is still commonly acknowledged that many careers are stated to be a male job such as lawyers, and female jobs such as secretaries. Gender inequality is a visible fact in our society and in this essay, I hypothesize that gender inequality still exists as a result of factors such as post-secondary education differences of the two genders, role of females in families, female objectification

Studies have also been carried out into whether or not there are differences between male and female brain size and whether this affects how we relate to each other in terms of gender. Simon Baron-Cohen believes that male brains are wired towards systematic understanding and females are wired towards empathy. In addition he says that this is not necessarily always the case but the majority are wired in this way: “Both sexes have their strengths and weaknesses. Neither sex is superior overall.” (Baron-Cohen, S. 2003).

In early American Culture it was common for a women's job to be a submissive homemaker in clear contrast to the male's tough breadwinner role. The Seventies marked the beginning of the Woman's Movement and the end of the ideals we held on to, of what it is to be a "woman". Women were no longer like the stereotypical homemaker, but were instead out protesting inequality. One of the Women's Movements primary goals was to crush gender roles in the sense that women were secondary to men. Girls are encouraged to play with dolls and playhouse type of toys while boys will often play with trucks and army toys

Gender inequality refers to unequal treatment or perceptions of individuals based on their gender.Professional ObstaclesWomen fought for decades to take their place in the workplace alongside men, but that fight isn't over yet. According to the most recent statistics from the U.S. Census, women earn just 77 percent of what men earn for the same amount of work [source: National Committee on Pay Equity]. In addition to this gender wage gap, women often face a glass ceiling when it comes to promotions, which is evident when you survey the lack of women in leadership positions at major companies.

All these differences are mainly created by the societies, which in other word is called, gender inequality. Gender inequality or gender stratification is the unequal treatment between individuals according to their gender. This paper will particularly discuss the problem of gender inequality in Egypt.
First of all, I would like to focus my discussion about how women suffer daily from being harassed in Egypt. Because Egypt is a male dominated society: no one can deny that women are not privileged because they are not able to live freely and safely. I always feel that I should be

The Question of Gender, the Question of Equality ! Gender inequality has been a constant facet of Iranian society for many years, as an Islamic state, the role and treatment of women is based on interpretation of Islamic law (Shari'a). The change derived from the downfall of the Pahlavi regime and subsequent Iranian revolution of 1979 dramatically effected the nature and extent of the rights and quality of life experienced by Iranian women. The reign of Pahlavi as Shah saw women's rights reach new capabilities - for example in 1963, regardless to objections by religious clerics women were granted the capability to vote and run for parliament .

Almost 40 years ago, women were officially granted the rights to have equal pay for equal work in Australia, when The Equal Opportunity Act was passed. Despite this act, however, sex discrimination still occurs in Australia this day, as well as all over the world where it should be illegal. Women in workplaces are unfairly being put second-best to men, when they should be regarded equally. Gender inequality in the workplace is still occurring through unequal wages, different opportunities offered to workers and unfair discrimination of women's choices, but the government and we as citizens can do something about it.An imbalance of pay leads to gender inequality in the workplace today.

The issue of gender inequality has been in the eyes of the public and been in awareness of society for decades. The problem of inequality in employment is one of the most vital issues in today's society. In order to understand this situation one must try to get to the root of the problem and must understand the factors that cause the female sex to have a much more difficult time in getting the same benefits, wages, and job opportunities as the male sex. The society in which we live has been shaped historically by men."A woman's primary attachment is to the family role; women are therefore less intrinsically committed to work than men and less likely to maintain a high level of specialized

"Is there any difference between the education acquired by men and women in college?" My answer to that question would be that although the "brick wall" ( Forum 1) in education has been broken, we still have another, invisible barrier called the "glass ceiling." ( Forum 1) Most people would say that education has changed a great deal since women began to attend institutions of higher learning. Is this completely true?

Today's world, as much as we pride ourselves to live in the 21st century, is still a world where gender inequality is very much present. It has taken mankind many thousands of years to reach the point where we are today, when women are almost on equal foot with man, regarding education, choice of profession, rights and privileges. It was uncommon not many decades ago for women to pursue any academic path, women in science were very rare, and those who did manage to put their foot in the door had to deal constantly with men who were telling them that they were in the wrong place, and that they should conform themselves with the gender role that society has cut out for them.

In world religion, gender inequality has always been a great concern. This inequality did not exist based on the concepts of original religion but through cultural influence and social manipulation. The essence of Buddhism originated from a human being (known as Buddha). And Buddha is the one who achieved the highest enlightenment. Often in Buddhism concept, there was confusion about how much devotion is required to achieve the great “Enlightenment” for monk or nun. Women in the Buddhism face much more challenges to become enlightened. Throughout the essay, I will be focusing on how in Buddhist woman needs to be reborn as a man to be fully enlightened.

It is true of Africa that women constitute a treasure that remains largely hidden. (Moleketi 10) African women grow 90% of all African produce, and contribute about 70% of Africa’s agricultural labor every year. (Salmon 16) Both the labor and food that are provided by African women go towards the increase in Africa’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP). (Moleketi 10) Although African women are feeding the majority of Africa’s inhabitants, the constricting ropes of gender inequality are still holding them back from being appreciated and living up to their full potential.

The story in itself is not considered to be sexist, but it has implied sexist morals. For example, fatherhood was one of the main themes in the film. The motherhood aspect was not as largely prospected and some movie critics have said that the movie was implying how fatherhood has a bigger impact on a child's life than motherhood. The interpretation is up to the audience, and sexist or not there still hints in the story by common belief of Hollywood critics.
Both these movies, although vastly different, are examples of implied male dominance. A term more commonly referred to is gender inequality, which sounds more staid but at the same time is also taken more

Stereotypes have been around forever: the preconceived belief about a type of person or group. Stereotypes can remark on different races or cultures like Polish people or African American people. For example, stereotypes may say Americans are lazy obese, or unintelligent. There are also many stereotypes about genders. For example, women are weaker than men or women like to cook more than men or they are better caretakers. This discussion addresses major controversial stereotypes within medical schools and health institutions across America. For centuries women have faced the challenge of gender inequality within their medical education and profession. Different medical fields in schools

Gender inequality was once an issue in high school classrooms. However it does not seem to be a problem today. There have been studies that show boys get more attention, but from personal experience I have not noticed that.In an attempt to end this discrimination Congress passed Title IX in 1972. This was a set of amendments that stated "no person in the US shall, on the basis of sex be excluded from participation in, or denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving federal aid".

Women have experienced a historic situation of inequality in the social as well as professional aspects. Women were normally the ones that would take care of children, do the chores in the house, and in rural areas; they would work in the field with the rest of the family. However, today’s women have become more self-sufficient and independent from the predominant male figure within every historical family. Gender inequality in the workplace is becoming less common; yet, gender is a factor that affects men and women. Especially women have been subjected to a historical discrimination that has influenced society to decide which job is more suitable for women than men. However women have

despite any actual truth of what they might be saying (pp 209). Creon demonstrates this when he says, “This girl is guilty of a double insolence. Breaking the given laws and boasting of it. Who is the man here, She or I, if this crime goes unpunished?” (pp 209). Another example of this gender inequality is seen as Oedipus says he is not worried about his son’s future and says that the men can take care of themselves; however, girls cannot. “As for my sons, you need not care for them. They are men, they will find some way to live. But my poor daughters, who have shared my table. Who never before have been parted from their father” (pp 77).

Would the tables have been turned if Jesus were in fact a woman? I don't make this comment to be disrespectful to the church, but the bible is full of references to gender roles. Many of the females mentioned in the bible hold a lesser role or have committed some type of transgression and incurred the wrath of God. Eve is a perfect example of a woman who is

This study deals with gender inequality in the modern society and looks at the difficulties women face when they strive for equal success as their male counterparts. About seventy-five percent of the jobs in well-paid professions are held by men and even if women are able to get equal jobs they are still paid considerably less . The central question posed is, are there any differences in the aspirations and career goals between males and females? However, in order to fully understand stereotypical social values about sex-roles in our society, an analysis of the broader context, in terms of the findings of the research of experts in the field, is needed.

Gender equality is about equal opportunity for men and women to identify their individual potential. One must be able to benefit from their participation in society and contribute to the economic and social development of their country (Australian Government. 2009). Through multiple reviewed literature on gender inequality, the overall concept within many sociological readings was the way gender inequality socially relates to employment and careers. There are three separate themes that intersect within the written literature that will be discussed. First, gender differences in historical social roles have created stereotypes on the contemporary outlooks of the social attitude

For centuries there has been gender discrimination and inequality, most often towards women. At one time or another, in many different counties, there have been laws that denied women the right to go to school, to travel, the right to hold property, to enter certain occupations, and many others.

What is your first memory of a child? Was it blowing out the candles on your birthday cake, or was it playing a game with a friend? Was it riding a bike or making a snowman? Many of these events will most likely be remembered of your childhood, but the memory of how you were socially biased will not be. The memory of being wrapped in a socially acceptable colored blanket depending on your gender either boy or girl. How your mother spoke to you, with a soft voice of understanding or concern if you were likely a boy, and how if you were a girl you were likely given a baby doll to play with instead of a truck.

Gender relations and inequality is experienced through lack of educational matters and unfair treatment of women and children, thus in many cases forcing women to run households, while the men are away at work in various seasonal migration jobs at unviable wages. As defined in a classic article, income inequality is “the distribution of total income amongst the represented population” (Gehring13). In outlined studies; evidence can conclude that poor gender relations in fact can be convoluted into other issues such as overpopulation, child malnourishment, low levels of GDP, and GNI. This in fact sounds to be true for what India is experiencing today. The predominant issue of gender

Gender Inequality in today's society, people are more and more trying to achieve more, higher positions on the work place, to double income, to enroll to the schools. It is all about competition in today's society, all about better living standards with new technologies, new treats for diseases, yet we still have such issue as gender inequality. Theories of socialization and personality development are not enough to account for gender differences. For one thing, they underestimate how much behavior can vary over time and in different situations.

Postcolonial Feminist Theory has taught us to look beyond the confines of narrow cultural lenses as we seek to understand the diversity of gendered experience. I believe it is even more empowering to go one step further and to look not only cross-culturally but also cross-temporally. In America, when the general population tries to articulate what traditional female gender roles were, it seems they often describe those prescriptions for being lady-like from the Victorian Era, 1950s post-war America, or maybe limited snapshots of the Middle Ages, like chivalry codes and chastity belts. Accordingly women were, supposedly and

Contrary to popular believe, gender is referred to the attitudes, behaviours and emotions linked with a specific sexual group. There are two dominant perspectives that illustrate two different viewpoints of gender inequality. The functionalist perspective, by Talcott Parsons, believed that both men and women possess specific qualities that make them excellent at specific events, and these qualities are not interchangeable (Brym, 2014). The Marxist-Feminist perspective; however, viewed qualities for men and women as to being dependent on social conditions rather than being inherited (2014).

One such woman was Liu Tiemo whom was called “Iron Grindstone.” She was one of the women found in Buddhism’s Golden Age where she studied under a great teacher “Master Guishan” of that time along with many other males. Master Guishan at the time had around 1500 students and at the end of it, he selected only 43 to be his dharma heirs of which Lui Tiemo was one.
What is seen in the modern day world is that Buddhist women in the West have been led to conclude that institutional sexism was born from Asian culture. With that sort of conclusion being drawn, it is then thought of that gender inequality can be removed from their dharma. This mindset has led to western monasteries to be co

In today’s world, men and women are perceived equally by the society. In the past, authority and control define men while women are given the characteristic of helplessness. Men are able to get hold of high positions while women usually are subservient to them. In movies, we would usually see women portray roles that are degrading due to the stereotypical notions they associate with this gender group. Moulin Rouge, a movie set during the 1900s narrates the story of a courtesan woman, Satine, as she undergoes hardships to earn money, experiences love but unfortunately, due to her irrational choices, faces tragic consequences at the end.

An index that might more accurately portray half of the population of a country is the Gender Inequality Index (GII). The GII looks at the differences between men and women in a country.

William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream may feature a number of female characters, but they are often portrayed as lesser to the men in the play. Shakespeare wrote in a time when women could not even act in plays, and A Midsummer Night’s Dream shows many examples of woman not being considered equal to men, and the results of this are not beneficial to the people in the play. Women in his time were seen in many instances as property, and this was not beneficial for them or for society. In fact, restrictions on the rights of women are the reason the main two couples of the play end up having their misadventures in the fairy forest.

Recognising the distinction between sex and gender is vital, in order to comprehend structured social inequality between both men and women. The word 'gender' is often used in the wrong context, i.e. assuming sex and gender are the same concept. However this is not the case. The first person to recognize this distinction was Dr Robert Stoller. He stated that 'sex' is the biological makeup which defines the differences between men and women, i.e. external genitalia and internal genitalia. He also defined 'gender' to be what make people either feminine or masculine, he continued on pointing out that sex and gender can be independent of each other.Gender refers to the

Sociology forms the core study of human interaction both at the household and in group level. It has been noted by several writers (for instance Scott, 1994) that it is important to note that role of male and female are clearly defined right from birth based culture, social status and economic environment. The environment in this case entails both the external and the internal interactions of the society. It is therefore augured that duty children tend to know of their sex as early as one year due to sense of separation from the other sex as observed by the child.

leading to gender inequality. Gender inequality can be defined as "the denial of autonomy and equal right to one group of people based on their gender" (Bonvillain, 2013). Gender inequality is exercised mostly in countries with strong economic speculation. When gender inequality occurs, the male is usually the dominant gender. This leads to males being accustomed to having power over females. The female reacts in a similar way to male dominance by believing that males are so to speak above them or more powerful than them. Women subject to male dominance develop a submissive demeanor and value themselves less.On the contrary, there are many cultures where both genders are valued equal. Gender

Medea and Lysistrata are two Greek literatures that depict the power which women are driven to achieve in an aim to defy gender inequality. In The Medea, Medea is battling against her husband Jason whom she hates. On the other hand, in Aristophanes' Lysistrata, the protagonist Lysistrata plotted to convince and organize the female gender to protest against the stubbornness of men. In terms of defining the purpose of these two literatures, it is apparent that Euripedes and Aristophanes created characters that demonstrate resistance against the domination of men in the society.

Therefore pay can be a powerful tool from an employer's point of view as it allows them to further their organisation's goals. However, pay inequality is inequitable and inefficient. There are two dimensions of pay inequality; horizontal inequality refers to the 'differences in rates of pay for the same or similar jobs at the same level in the organisational hierarchy' for example the gender pay gap; vertical inequality refers to the 'difference in pay level between jobs at different levels in the organisational hierarchy' for example the pay gap between executive positions and

Karl Marx, one of the prominent social thinkers of the 19th century, based his theoretical thinking on inequality and social reproduction (Holmes et al, 2012) – most evident in his interpretation of capitalism. Whilst we primarily associate capitalism with social class; gender inequality – particularly in the working world – is intrinsically linked with capitalism and the systemic culture associated with it. Acker (1990) supports this link by arguing that “class is constructed through gender and that class relations are always gendered.

Gender inequality refers to unfair or unequal treatment of people based on their femininity or masculinity. This is often in reference to roles that society has stipulated by default for each gender type. Sexual inequality refers to bias treatment of people based on their male or female sexual traits. Awareness and sensitivity to gender and sexual inequity are vital in the functioning of a society; every society member ought to have equal status, voice and opportunities irrespective of their gender. In every day-to-day activity, gender and sexual insensitivity exhibits in peoples’ speech, behavior and delegation of duties. Insensitivity is often unintentional, thus the need to

The representation of Gender roles is an issue expressed in "The Penguin best Australian Short stories" collection. The issues of gender are expressed through gender inequality, stereotypical gender roles, the economic basis of marriage, and the expectations of women. These beliefs and their changes as the stories became more modern are presented through the stories, 'Monsieur Caloche', "The Lottery' and "A Gentleman's Agreement.The representation of gender inequality is expressed in the story Monsieur Caloche (1889) through a satirical point of view. This story represents the workplace and throughout most of the story the readers notice that there was a deficiency of female characters. The
