The Brave Fight For Gender Equality
In the 21st century, women are stronger than ever. We are small business owners, leaders and have established the right to be heard, respected and treated like a human being instead of a man's piece of property. Though there are still several countries in the world where the rights of woman are not equal, women are coming into power.
However, it is not enough to say the fight for gender equality is over. If anything the fight to be woman is just getting started. In countries like Indonesia, the government has declared a no tolerance policy against violence against women; reports of violence against woman have tripled between 2010 and 2014 according to the National Commission on Violence against Women. Also the average wage of women working in urban Indonesia is 30% less than their male counterparts.
Ultimately as annoying as it may seem to listen to the bull dyke scream about women’s issues through a megaphone, her influence and advocacy is essential to the progression of gender equality around the world. As a global and international society, we are still greatly lagging on gender inequality
In the country of Jordan women do not have the same economic opportunity as men even when they have more education. Women in Jordan experience double the unemployment rates of their male counterparts even when they are more skilled and educated than their male counterparts.
However, being discriminated in the workplace is only one of the major issues women face in the world. Abuse and rape is an international and disturbing problem women encounter. Globally 1 in 3 women experience domestic violence. Not only do women have to fear for their lives because of the attacks of male aggressors, they have to watch out for heinous and bizarre religious practices regarding the idea of a woman’s virtue, virginity, or what it means to be kept pure until the day they are married to a man.
One of the worse things that can happen to women in the world is genital mutilation. Genital mutilation is a horrific ritual of sewing the vagina shut to keep the woman pure until marriage. In countries like Egypt, 90% of women have undergone this horrific act of female oppression.
Considering women are still getting their vagina's stiched shut in the 21st century, it is safe to say the fight for women's rights is just beginning.
