Let’s Pledge Against Racism Against Women on International Women’s Day
We deserve better! Stop it
Let’s celebrate this day definitely, today we gonna put the lights on the problems that we face as women.
The definition of ‘women’s issues’ varied but included women’s sexual and reproductive health, child-care leave, domestic violence, ‘equal pay for equal work’, marital law, welfare policies and education. This is normal in all countries. Can you guess it would be in third world countries?
- Access to Education
- Employment Opportunities
- Reproductive Health & Rights
- Maternal Health
- Gender-based Violence
And much more…
Restrictions placed on women
Far too many girls, especially those from the poorest families, still face gender discrimination in education, child marriage and pregnancy, sexual violence and unrecognized domestic work. These are some types of gender inequality.
Let’s go to the deeper overview
Women’s power is great! Most of the countries are supporting this method but when it comes to personally you can see that most of the men prefer to just marry someone who is gonna take care of the child and that’s all. No matter what he believes, it’s about the effects that we are gonna see in the future of his daughter and more generations of this mentality!
When an armed mob stormed the U.S. Capitol and took over the building on Wednesday, many Americans said that’s what happens in “Third World” countries. TV journalists and pundits said it. As did people on social media.
Everyone knows what they meant — poor countries, where health care systems are weak, where democracy may not be exactly flourishing.
In third world countries, it is not about being poor but about the mentality and women’s rights that they don’t have! They don’t have the right to have friends! ” boy ” . the image that in some countries, being with a flatmate of a different gender is CRIME!
That’s the reason why they have a high rate of harassment and rape. Their minds are too close. They think that the Virgin girl can’t wear some piece of clothes like a swimming suit just to keep her virginity! Not only this but also they are facing sarcasm when it comes to high positions.
They might see women as tools to use at some point!
Women and girls in Third World societies are more likely than men and boys to have less access to technology, education, technical training, land, credit, and basic needs. Historically, women have performed mostly laborious, gender-assigned duties with skills and tools passed down from generation to generation.
Why is there inequality in developing countries?
The more discriminatory social institutions are, the lower the rate of female participation in the labour force, for example. Early marriage – largely forced – is a key factor here. Women’s access to paid jobs is crucial not only for their personal well-being but also for economic development.
The gender pay gap measures inequality but not necessarily discrimination
The gender pay gap (or the gender wage gap) is a metric that tells us the difference in pay (or wages, or income) between women and men. It’s a measure of inequality and captures a concept that is broader than the concept of equal pay for equal work.
Differences in pay between men and women capture differences along many possible dimensions, including worker education, experience and occupation. When the gender pay gap is calculated by comparing all male workers to all female workers – irrespective of differences along these additional dimensions – the result is the ‘raw’ or ‘unadjusted’ pay gap. On the contrary, when the gap is calculated after accounting for underlying differences in education, experience, etc., then the result is the ‘adjusted’ pay gap.
Discrimination in hiring practices can exist in the absence of pay gaps – for example, if women know they will be treated unfairly and hence choose not to participate in the labour market. Similarly, it is possible to observe large pay gaps in the absence of discrimination in hiring practices – for example, if women get fair treatment but apply for lower-paid jobs.
The implication is that observing differences in pay between men and women is neither necessary nor sufficient to prove discrimination in the workplace. Both discrimination and inequality are important. But they are not the same.
The major examples of social inequality include the income gap, gender inequality, health care, and social class. In health care, some individuals receive better and more professional care compared to others.
Gender inequality holds back the growth of individuals, the development of countries and the evolution of societies, to the disadvantage of both men and women,” claims the State of World Population Report 2000, released this week from the United Nations Population Fund.
How we can solve…
Investing in girls’ education provides a boost to a developing country’s progress and acts as a catalyst for gender equality on multiple levels. Provided with an education, girls are more likely to earn a higher income later in life, increasing their family’s overall quality of life.
In the end, we just hope their voices will be heard! They deserve a better life. Happy International Women’s Day.
