among the obese male population. It can be also be observed, there are no obese male models in the Caribbean due to the view by many in the Caribbean society that obese men are unattractive .Institutionalization is the process of establishing a practice as a norm4. Thus it is quite clear gender discrimination is institutionalized in the Caribbean through the mass media and division of labour.
The functionalist perspective of gender inequality suggests that gender inequalities exist as an efficient way to create division of labour, or a social system in which a particular segment of the population is clearly responsible for certain acts of labour and

in shows like “Father Knows Best”), in turn creating mental blockades for the vast majority of women, ultimately limiting their social and economic capabilities. This is a global issue. In some nations, women have become the “lesser” of society, not able to overcome sexism that is sometimes violent and aggressive (Berg, 17). The spectrum of gender inequality in the world ranges from a subtle social imbalance to a complete social hierarchy where women are at the bottom and men at the top.
There is a certain gap between men and women. The social and economic aspects of some countries encourage this gap. Absolute equality is yet to be defined, and the dictionary definition for it is, ‘the

Gender inequality means that women and men based on their genders treated differently and have not the same right in society as their counterpart. This is clear there are many natural difference between male and female. But these natural differences must not be reflected in women life and become a pretext for a systematic violation of their rights and paralyze them to access the same education, healthcare, job occupation and all other social and political opportunities. Certainly unequal power relations between men and women is the main element to violation of human rights which its negative and harmful effects is not limited just for women themselves, it also contains many direct and

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.

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.

Unequal treatment of individuals based on their gender is called gender inequality and it is characterized by man’s dominance and regarding of women and as inferior and less valuable beings because of their sex. It is diverse and widespread all over the world with Asia being the most affected continent. It can be classified into different classes which are demonstrated in different ways. First, there is an economic gender inequality which is demonstrated by women contributing less than men in the formal work sector; thereby, being more likely to live in poverty. Secondly, political gender inequality which entails low representation of women in elected offices, political and corporate

All these differences are mainly created by the societies, which in other word is called, gender inequality.

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.

Men and women have been separated since the beginning of life. God put Adam in charge of the Earth. When God created Eve, he took a piece of Adam’s rib from his stomach to create Eve. From this story that came from the bible, men believe that God made them better than women. And this has created a gender inequality between man and woman ever since then. Gender inequality, as stated on The Free Dictionary’s website is, “the difference between women and men in regard to social, political, economic, or other attainments or attitudes, or the problem perceives to exist because of such difference.” I believe that, when it comes to women’s sports, there is a pretty big difference in genders.

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

In Western cultures, many believe gender inequality is dissolving, especially in regards to education. However when examining statistical data between countries, the evidence clearly states the inequality gap between gender and education. A country with one of the widest disparities is Pakistan where only 26% of the entire female population is literate (Latif, 2014). The country has the second highest rate of children absent from school and two thirds of these children are female (Education for All Global Monitoring Report, 2012).

"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?
Women have undoubtedly made "Substantial educational progress." ( Women 3) We should not forget that the large gaps between the education levels of women and men in the early 1970's essentially

Gender Inequality in Literature
Gender equality, men and women having the same rights and obligations, and everyone having the same opportunities in society, has been a topic of discussion for many centuries (Dorious and Firebaugh). Women have used literature as a voice to defend their gender equality rights. Female authors have tried to achieve extraordinary success in literature while functioning in a culture that frowned upon female literary desire. Men greatly dominate the profession (Dorious and Firebaugh). Until well into the nineteenth century, it was common for both male and female writers to publish under a pseudonym. Fiction was a genre that was frequently published anonymously

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.

(Salmon 16) Both the labor and food that are provided by African women go towards the increase in Africa’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP).

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

Gender Inequality and Family Structure
Gender is the oldest form of categorization among society. The problem is not that gender is a differentiating category, but that the female gender is exploited through both benevolent and hostile sexism that creates unequal conditions. Given the biology of males and females, physically and neurologically, it is not farfetched to assume that it is natural for men and women to have tendencies associated with different social roles. Attitudes and behaviors shape how people define parental roles and family structure. Family structure is strongly correlated to class and gender inequality (Murray 171).

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

These theories will be discussed because they are relevant in explaining the roots of inequality and the socialization that causes men to be in a certain role and women in another.

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).

Gender Inequality at a Workplace
Historically, males and females normally assume different kinds of jobs with varying wages in the workplace. These apparent disparities are widely recognized and experienced across the globe, and the most general justification for these differences is that they are the direct outcomes of discrimination or traditional gender beliefs—that women are the caregivers and men are the earners. However, at the turn of the new century women have revolutionized their roles in the labor market. Specifically in industrialized societies, the social and economic position of women has shifted.

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.

Throughout the Poisonwood Bible, Kingsolver accentuates the oppression of men over women.

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.

lies within the number of women employed behind the scenes. On the top 250 films of 2012, the highest percentage of women working behind the scenes were female producers, which was twenty-five percent. What is even more surprising is only fifteen and nine percent of the writers and directors, respectively, were women (New York Film Academy). With so few women working on the skeletons of films, only so much can be done about gender inequality.

Sex is a very complex labyrinth according to certain religious standards; it is something that should be guarded until marriage and should only be done to procreate not so much for the pleasure.

Gender inequality is an issue that has been publicly echoing through the society for centuries. The inequality in employment still remains one of the most pressing problems. For decades women were considered to have only one mission: stay home and take care of their children. The major reason of such injustice lies on the conviction that men are superior to women. In addition, a common belief was that men tend to be more confident because of their innate mental powers or biological advantages. Only one hundred years ago women didn't even have a right to vote nor did they have a right to property. Today we live in a society where men and women are considered to be more equal than they have
