GENDER INEQUALITY (introduction)



THE DEFINITION
According to Wikipedia, gender inequality is the idea and situation that women and men are not equal. Gender inequality refers to unequal treatment or perceptions of individuals wholly or partly due to their gender. It arises from differences in (arguably socially constructed) gender roles. This definition as short as it is encompasses what gender inequality is about as seen in our society but what is exactly the problem?
THE DISPARITY
No matter how we want to look at it, from any angle or dimension, men and women are as different as night and day, even farther than night and day so why are we not embracing our unique differences but instead allowing it to turn us into obvious stereotypes? Men were created different from women and their responsibilities are obvious, and this doesn’t in anyway make them superior to women as to exercise their physical power over women to the point of relegating them to the background as they are were meant to protect, lead and provide for their household. Same goes for women, their nature was made from ad infinitum to nurture and to preserve but its seen these days were women take up the responsibilities of the men either because the men in their lives are not up to the task or they are unavoidably absent (dead) or the women want to prove that what a man can do that they can do it better. Men and women were never made to be the same and understanding that being either of the gender is a unique nature that is to be appreciated.
Men are logical and practical in their actions while women are emotional and perceptive. When the purpose of a thing is not known abuse is obviously inevitable so when both genders don’t understand and complement each other they tend to abuse each other’s role. Over the centuries, women have been treated poorly and seen as weak, the obvious “weaker sex” and women has responded over the centuries till date by proving that they are stronger than the world gave them credit for. Do you know that probably in the midst of trying to prove who we are as a gender we may start missing the point? We have to be able to be able to be comfortable in our different and individual genders.
THE WAY FORWARD
RESPECT FOR GENDER UNIQUENESS
Both of the gender should try to find out what is unique to the personality of each gender and respect their uniqueness instead of belittling what the other gender stands for.
BEING YOU
Each gender should have enough respect for themselves to be comfortable in their own gender instead of always trying to be or copy the actions of the other gender.

UNDERSTAND THERE IS NO EQUALITY
The same way no two humans are the same so is the two genders. The male and female genders can never be the same; they can never have the same responsibilities so they can never be equated with the same standard of measurement unless on the basis of core human nature which should be based o love and respect for human life.
