Sustainable Development Goal 5

Gender Inequality is multidimentional socio economic issue which need both policies in place as well as the personal mindshift of every individual. It is spread across the corners in disguise. Gender Equality cannot be provided as a service or product. It is a change in the way of thinking and more like cultivating a natural habit of treating an other person equally. Rise of words like women empowerment and feminism is a result of dominating outdated beliefs which are unparallel to current social structures where women are breaking the glass shell around them.

While navigating the young minds of our daughters, gender roles are centered towards family and wellness. Growing up to certain unreal fascination, childhood remains the most influencial part of everyone’s life. This directly affects the behavioural incompetence and confusion in choosing roles to play. Elimination process is conducted by the parent, partner or children for the women. This is also called Patriarchy !


Unlearning is the factor of importance in tackling gender inequality. Leadership to advocate against constructed bias will influence change. Gender inequality has the power to destroy healthy and sustainable ecosystems. Women who have the gift of being able to reproduce , must not be undermined to emotional duties dictated by someone. Self initiative by each of us will bring a collective movement that will enforce each person to restructure their homes and surroundings.
