“In which you help counter society’s restricting narratives of gender”
Gender stereotypes exist in all societies worldwide. Mostly it is carried out depending on existing cultural beliefs, religion, and values that were followed since ancient times. The people who act are determined but lack the knowledge of the effects that may arise. Such kinds of convictions have varied with time, and some people are condemning it and are trying to fight gender discrimination, including gender stereotyping, and have been doing it for some time.
Gender stereotypes have a negative impact, and information has been communicated across generations as they limit a person’s capacity by hindering them some chances and personal choices. Most women are then ones who fall into the trap of gender stereotyping and discrimination, which inhibits them from using policies, rules, and practices that restrict them from moving.
In recent years, changes have given women freedom in work, clothing, and occupation because liberals in various nations have fought for them and have condemned the action of gender stereotyping but still, there some countries where women suffer the torments of discrimination, making life so hard.
Basic knowledge of why gender discrimination is carried out in various nations, mostly Middle Eastern countries, African nations, and Asian nations, should be understood. The two genders are perceived to have different roles and purposes in society. Books of religion and other scriptures reveal that men and women were created to perform different parts regardless of their workload. These beliefs have been passed on from one generation to another and have advanced due to continuous repetitive preaching. The natural idea of gender bias has led to brought division as it has been imprinted in people’s minds, making it impossible to change the practice in the society we reside in.
Women have been perceived to bear kids and perform household duties while men are supposed to engage in other works outside the house. The female gender is assumed to have only the capacity to cook, do cleaning and sew while men are thought to perform heavy tasks, enabling them to earn them some money, hence assuming to be rulers of the planet. Males tend to have attributes that make them appear more superior than women, resulting in deviation in gender equality as women tend to start worshiping and begging them.
Media is always at the forefront of portraying men and women in a stereotyped manner that raises the awareness of the abilities that one has. Partialities and stereotypes are not good because they tend to overlook one’s capabilities, desires, weaknesses, thoughts, and emotions. In most cases, men are the winners and presumed to be conquerors, be it in fitness, sexual influence, and human relations. Women in the social norm are assumed to be sex objects because of their weakness, dormant, subordinate, fools, and even awkward. Women are thought to use most of their energies in improving their appearance and in the overall management of their homes. The way media attacks genders may change how one feels about his/herself.
It is difficult to change one’s mind that people have information conveyed to them for quite a long time. Feminism and sexism have been used as the critical tools for bringing equivalence in the world, which has been adopted by many nations due to the perspectives that have happened. Such countries have an equal society enabling women to speak freely, but there is some segregation on some level.
Recently the universe is more equivalent compared to ancient times. There is a perception that we are more in a firm ground and heading in the right direction, but some issues are still pushing us behind since there are wrongdoings to human rights still, which separates human beings to a greater extent. Some cases need to be looked at to ensure we live in a legit world. Gender discrimination has been assumed to be part of society because it is less discussed. Only those who endure the action discuss it. The planet is moving to the right path is that equality is being advocated to a greater extend
