Why gender inequality?

ONE of the main issues of Pakistan is gender inequality. It refers to the unequal treatment of women on the basis of social, biological and anatomical factors.

It is beyond human control to give birth to males only. Why does the birth of females have to be an unacceptable part of our society?

Cultural stereotypes are engraved within both males and females. This is the reason behind gender inequality and unrest related to it. Women are generally viewed as delicate, caring and nurturing and meant for skillful occupations while men are viewed as breadwinners so jobs held by males are economically valued.

Income disparities among males and females are also recognizable, as equally qualified males are paid twice more than females having the same skills.

Women should be shown kindness and provided love, care and devotion to make this world a better place.
