Effects of genderinequality in society

Effects of Gender Inequality in Society
There is a lot going on in our communities on
daily basis. Gender imbalance or inequity is an
issue that has been debated for many decades.
A society should always be peaceful, united and
tied by good mores and traditions. However,
gender inequality- unequal treatment of
individual in a society based on whether a man
or a woman is an issue that has reduced our
great societies to the most uncouth places to
be associated with. There are many effects of
gender disparity in the society that if properly
look at can help get rid of this vice.
For many years, the socially constructed roles
of men and women have being changing
rapidly. Women in most cases have found
themselves gaining more control in areas like
family, education and work. Nevertheless, it is
not the same case in all countries or societies.
Many of our societies still have elements
gender inequality. These societies have given
rise to biased attitudes within many fields.
Majority of our societies have come up with
great acts or rules that have made it easy to
emphasis on gender equality.
Cases of discrimination on basis of sex, marital
status and pregnancy have been reported
frequently. These cases have unbearable
consequences that many people are not able to
live with. Many women have been victims of
gender inequality as men in societies have built
a perception that women are weak and cannot
fight for their rights. Men have gone to an
extent of abusing their women, mothers and
even own children. In many incidents, the
victims have lost their life, left suffering in
depression while others are contemplate
divorce or separation.
Gender inequality is also evident in workplaces.
Both men and women are victims in all areas
of work. There is a disparity when it comes to
labor market in a situation where men and
women share full-time and part-time
employment. Surprisingly, the proposition of
men in full time jobs is higher about 89% with
only 11% in part time position. This is in
contrast to number of women about 58% in
full-time employment and 42% working part
time. This disparity comes with immense
effects on income distribution and wealth
sharing between the two genders. Part time
jobs tend to come with lower payments and
fewer job securities.
Erosion of working rights and benefits this
means that many women suffer in silence
when they counterpart male parts are enjoying.
Discrimination in workforces can also mean low
production as women are capable of doing the
same amount of work like men. Nevertheless,
if discriminated; many will give up their jobs
and opt for other alternatives meaning lower
production in a company.
In the education arena, women are deprived
good education to the advantage of male
partners. Many societies believe that women
are destined to stay back at home and take care
of their families. Many will not further their
studies but end up being prizes for their male
counterparts. Lack of good education means
that these women will not be able to take care
of their families and this may come with heavy
consequences like increased mortality rate and
poor health.
In the political field, women in the society have
made it clear that men are the best leaders,
but these should not be the case in the current
age. Women should not just watch men ruin
societies through poor governance when they
have the capabilities. Together as a society, it
can be easy and gratifying to build respective
and equal society.
