Women’s equality | Gender equality
“Behind every successful man, there is a woman” Now it’s time to change this statement like” behind every successful woman there is a man”. And it’s possible only when we give equal opportunity to a woman as a man. Means Gender equality.
Although our spiritual beliefs consider females as a deity, we fail to identify them as a human first. The education of girls is not taken as seriously, which again poses a threat to gender equality in many parts of the world. Child marriages and child labor also contribute to the lack of gender equality, which means being able to take opportunities and responsibilities in all areas of society and in families. Because women are heavily burdened with expectations in the cultural and social spheres.
Importance of Gender equality by all means:
Expectations from women are from birth to death. The struggle of women voters in America, which started in 1848, has come a long way today. In India too, many things have changed about women. But such changes are often limited to one level of society. The poor, women from some strata of society can get this after a great struggle. Our country is considered unsafe for women. So it is necessary to change the mindset of men, to co-operate to give equal opportunities. Only certain sections of society can experience the same opportunity. We don’t have equality in terms of salary, employment either. Women have made progress in many fields such as sports, education, banking, literature. So this is positivity. But they also want the freedom of decision in financial planning. These women’s equality days should not be celebrated only by women. Men also need to play a sensitive role in this. This change could happen if they take on this role. Respect for a woman’s labor and dignity. This journey is collective. The false image that a woman has progressed means that she has progressed. Collectively, this approach is expected. The women in the community encouraged each other, if the community came together and tried, it would help the next picture to look more positive.
Changing societies mindset:
We need to change our mindset. There is no difference between urban and rural. Domestic violence also occurs in metropolitan areas. Girls are killed in the womb. This proportion is higher in the city. We as a society need to change our mindset. Nothing will happen in one day with a symbolic celebration. This should come true. As a society, we need to look at how we think about gender equality. We should celebrate humanity today. This humanity needs to be celebrated on a daily basis. Only then can we move forward.
History of women’s equality day:
Women’s Equality Day celebrated every August 26, commemorates the passage of women’s suffrage in the U.S. and reminds us of the hurdles overcome by the heroic women who faced violence and discrimination to propel the women’s movement forward.
Women’s Equality Day is celebrated on August 26 to commemorate the 1920 adoption of the Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution, which prohibits the states and the federal government from denying the right to vote to citizens of the United States on the basis of sex.
By the early 1900s, several countries including Finland, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom had legalized voting for women as the movement continued to sweep across the world. In the U.S., the 19th Amendment to the Constitution was first introduced in 1878, but it failed to gain traction. It wasn’t until women’s involvement in the World War I effort made their contributions painfully obvious that women’s suffrage finally gained enough support. Women’s rights groups pointed out the hypocrisy of fighting for democracy in Europe while denying it to half of the American citizens at home.
Women aren’t done fighting for equal rights. Today, the wage gap between men and women still impacts women’s economic power, and gender-based discrimination still plagues workplaces and business transactions.
To remind us of the struggles of the past, present, and future, Congress designated August 26 as Women’s Equality Day in 1971.
