Do You Have A Role In Equalizing Economy ?

Written by Sahithi Divi ( Intro)

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:

  • AgriculturE
  • Policy Making
  • Business ownership
  • Homemakers
  • RURAL ECONOMIC DRIVERS
  • Sports
  • Corporate 
  • Cultural
  • 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.

Irreversible Changes In A Women’s Lifecycle – How it affects the country’s performance

Written by Sahithi Divi

Why is India on the 132 nd position out of 187 countries on gender inequality index? Women showed manifesting participation in every field, still what makes Gender Equality a prime goal for an inclusive development of the world. If half our country’s population is women then imagine what would happen if half of us are unable to unleash our fundamental potential and are held back ? Gender is an unimportant economic plague without it’s equality.


The International Monetary Fund finds that India’s GDP will increase by 27 percent if women equally played a role in economy . There are some serious issues dangerously affecting the developing economies  and gender is the major cause for some of these following irreversible changes enforced by gender bias on women.

BIRTH — Female foeticide is irreversible. It results in the decline of sex ratio of the country, causing societal imbalance. Social discrimination begins with sex determination.

PRIMARY EDUCATION: Government provides free education to all, making education a fundamental right for children. But early school drop outs are dominantly gender bias inflicted victims. If any difficulty arises in the family, education will sail apart from HER in the first place.

EMPLOYMENT: Employement is a social luxury for majority of women in India. This phase of life needs courage, whereas working women can be easily objectivised by stereotypical gender policing. Literacy rate of Indian women is 67% but the turn out at work place of women is inconsiderably low, hampering the GDP drastically.

WORK ENVIRONMENT: Does not get any easier here !! Safe working atmosphere, commuting challenges against the time of the day, women centric generalised expectations and traditional beliefs contrasting the work efficiency or performance remain the first hand hassles for many ( infact most ) working Indian women.

MARRIAGE: Society/ Family play the dominant role in marriage choices, than the person actually getting married. Changing that person’s life in a day for the rest of their life. Marriage is created into generational upliftment of families and not individuals. How will more and more women be able to contribute to the country if they are held back in imaginary beliefs and regulations ?

MOTHERHOOD : Sadly, even motherhood does not come as a personal choice to many women while ignoring the health and financial implications induced onto them. Domestic voilence, gender dominance, rape and many other reasons can cause motherhood, which can never be taken back or changed from that women.

Gender Inequality is irreversible

UNPAID LIFESKILL: Under-utilised and unpaid skill delivered by women in domestic roles is highly under valued. Revisit the unmeasured power of homemakers and direct them for delivering a skill that can trigger the country’s outbound potential. Our homes are carrying the most value watsed power.

Gender Equality is an emergency not an emerging need.  Everyday that we don’t take action, millions of women are facing the cruel effects of gender inequality.

What Is Your Responsibilty Towards Gender Equality ?

Written by Sahithi Divi

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 ? 

LOVE ALL
  • 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.
