Gender Quotes

As much as people try to conceal it, it only becomes that much more obvious. What is it that people are trying so hard to conceal, but only end up giving themselves away? It’s nothing but gender wars and discriminations made on the grounds of sex. We may like to believe we live in an open society, but sadly the world we live in, has its own share of skeletons hidden in deep, dark closets. Logically this gender war arises due to the age old gender roles defined by the society. Mostly this is blamed on the men, as they are said to have set these gender roles and follow them stringently.

According to surveys, only 42% of women believe that their gender will not affect their careers. If we look around us, gender inequality is everywhere. For example, in films, mostly the leading actor is paid more than the leading actress and in sports the men’s team attracts more focus than the women’s side. Several nations and their cultures have also been accused for paving the way for gender inequality. In Saudi women are forced to wear ‘Hijabs’ and they aren’t allowed to leave their homes without their husbands. However, if you are really looking forward to making a difference, as far as gender wars and gender discrimination goes, you really can!
