All we have to do today is, to allow eachother, independent of gender bias to unleash their complete potential for the full benefit of our nation. By ignoring the social barriers faced by the opposite gender, we are objectively holding back our country from taking a leap that can bring us back all the years we ever lost to history. Only individuals can bring the dreams of this nation come true.
Are we waiting for a revolution to take place without participating ?
We are getting suppressed in the mirages of aspirational dreams. Here we are , choking our country from performing its capability.
How can we wait longer ?
Gender Equality cannot be resolved by our government, because there are scarecely any women in the policy making. Think about the real life immediate leadership centres you come across ; like home, school, workplace, communities etc.
Act, Advocate and Allign with your opposite gender to support each other like a community. That is what will make gender equality heal us ‘together’ as a nation one day.
Gender Equality is an insulated topic admist the false moral regulations. Indian constitution provides equal rights to men and women whereas the differences are unmeasurable. The economic health of our country is divided between men, women and neutral genders. Even in today’s context, the conditional differences are wiping out the fundamental rights of the person by blocking it with gender stereotyping breaking out their original potential to generate financial independence through employement or self employed sources.
” BUT “
Whether it be a family, school, government or any institution; the efficiency of functionality will be deeply effected due to the discriminative pullbacks consisting of gender bias. Business solutions cannot free the mental stigma that has been induced by generations worth of embedded preachings which classify roles and deliverables based on gender. Limitations created by the common belief backed by majority is a comfirmed as a backlog for a healthy ecosystem. Talking about India’s diversity of resources where are we in providing those resources to our women equally ?
Here isthe thing, poviding resources does not mean a special status. It means not occupying someone else’s freedom of availing their fundamental right to health, education, employement, marital implications, sexual descisions, childbirth and many pre formed templates into which objective genders are categorised into.
The change has to begin from within us, to be able to believe the statistics which say that India can add upto $770 billion—more than 18%—to its GDP by 2025, simply by giving equal opportunities to women, according to an April 23 report by the McKinsey Global Institute.
While the end beneficiary of gender inequality could be either of the gender’s situationally; although women are the most fabricated in stigma. The whole other perspective of looking at gender inequality is analysing the economical areas of the country which are depleting due to ground level stereotyping. The few major economic drivers of our country are the following:
RURAL ECONOMIC DRIVERS
Research and Development
Foundational skill building
Independent of the sector, gender has crept into the root cause of driving imbalance. Our country is a mega diverse economy where gender is percieved in numerous ways. Gender inequality can cause a slump in GDP ? Women equal participation ? Categorising house hold ? Placing the priorities under social timelines is a challenging descision making scenario. If you are wondering that gender equality is not your area of action; probably we need to restructure every field and resource for equal distribution to gauge the power of balanced sex ratios.
I aim to explain the undervalued strength which lies in gender inequality that is contemplating on toxic levels with the existing opportunities. I hope this article does reflect that your role does exist in playing the gender equalizer.
Gender is independent of an individual’s sex, it is an evolving choice and personal conception of how one wants to live their life. Gender based education is very important at a young age for self discovery. Here we do not discuss the type of genders, instead we first learn to embrace the diversity of gender for a gentle ride for all.
Many of us around us are quietly taking on the burden of making personal choices about appearance, lifestyle, professional path and intimate universe. Gender is how a person chooses to live their life. There is a lot of imbalance in developing societies, the imbalance that shuts down risk taking abilities of a person based on the objectively formed gender biases.
Not only Education and awareness but also a community that embraces the differences between people independent of gender is essential.
What can you do ?
Promoting an inclusive society for co existence (Not feminism and gender diversity alone)
Talk to your friends and allow them to share ( Hear to indifferent unharmful personal perspectives with respect)
Create awareness about gender diversity to normalise your surrounding about it ( Fearlessly speak up to the abnormal reactions)
Destigmatize the decision making process at least for the immediate person you are dealing with. ( Give your hand to those who need it to cross societal barriers)
Question the stereotypes about gender stigma around you ( If you feel something is not right, then question)
In the journey of life everyone goes through their own battles, but gender is one fight that we can resolve better together.
