Can we make a difference?

Yes, educating people and teaching young children that both boys and girls are equal in this world can make a difference. Can we pledge to tell 3 people we know about the cons of gender inequality and explain to them that people of both gender should be treated with love and respect? If all of us who believe in gender equality practice and lead by example, I am sure we can make the world a much better place to live in. I raise my hands to take an oath, do you?

  1. In no country are women in equal. In fact, the World Economic Forum projects it will take 170 years to reach gender equality globally, and 158 years in North America. On the path to gender equality, we need gender equity. In order to have gender equity, we need to change the narrative and focus away from fixing women and put it squarely where it belongs – fixing the system.
    You have rightly said that educating people and teaching young children that both boys and girls are equal in this world can make a difference. We need gender mainstreaming. It is a strategy for making women’s as well as men’s concerns and experiences an integral dimension of the design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of policies and programmes in all political, economic and societal spheres so that women and men benefit equally.
