    Globally, women have fewer opportunities for economic participation than men, less access to basic and higher education, greater health and safety risks, and less political representation. ... Women's empowerment is a critical aspect of achieving gender equality.
    Today. the fight about gender equality is a story of bias and prejudices.” said Pedro Conceição, head of UNDP’s Human Development Report Office.
    This new analysis sheds light on why enormous “power gaps” still exist between men and women in our economies, our political systems, and our corporations despite real progress closing gender inequalities in basic areas of development like education and health; and the removal of legal barriers to political and economic participation.
    “If women believe that they can be free, that they can have a voice, that they can do whatever they want, and that they have the right and the mandate to fight for it, anything can happen. But part of it is breaking through our own sense of limitation and our fear that if we step forward, people won’t like us…. Give voice to what you know to be true and do not be afraid of being disliked or exiled. I think that’s the hard work of standing up for what you see.”
    to break the bias and by raising awareness and changing incentives. For instance, by using taxes to incentivize fairly sharing child-care responsibilities, or by encouraging women and girls to enter traditionally male-dominated sectors such as the armed forces and information technology.
    why is gender equality an important issue?what are the main issues of gender inequality?

      This is a great summary of the problem of gender equality and you have begun to explain some very real solutions at the end. Could you explain a bit more about how taxes might help to create a fairer situation around childcare?

        Helping children develop critical thinking skills and taking action.
        Ask them to explore their ideas about gender identity and think about what is “fair in terms of gender” and what is not. Also
        Although gender role norms have broadened over time, attention to equality and diversity in gender identity can help create a solid and positive foundation for children's future identity development.

      One of the major challenges is that women can't fight for their rigts. In the aspect of gender inequality I feel like everyone both men and women have basic fundamental rights and some of these basic rights are; right to expression and opinion also right to fair hearing.As women we should learn to fight for our fundamental human rights.

      Gender equality is not human rights, It is a problem in society, where women feel unfairness , constrained and not free, whether the bias is intentional or unconscious, making it difficult for women to move forward.
      Let's imagine that gender equality will be achieved, justice and peace will be achieved, and women will achieve all their requirements and goals easily without worrying, and the difference will be appreciated, and justice and equality will be achieved in society, because there are a lot of work that men do and women want to do, but they can't, this will lead to the spread of Hate and conflict in society, so let's eliminate this global problem together.

    Well I think that putting laws that respect women in the United Nations in their country and when a specialized committee for women's rights is established so that women's rights are not infringed is very useful because when a person knows that there is punishment for those who violate these rights. Some may fear that it will violate women's rights, and this may also help other countries, because the United Nations is the most deceptive place from which other countries can be imitated.!!
    The United Nations also recognized this problem in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The fifth goal is to achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls. This is an indication of the important role of women in development.
    Of course, all countries must have in place and strong laws and legislation to ensure equal opportunities for women and to ensure their effective participation in all activities, leadership positions and participation in the decision-making process.
    I also think that women themselves should know their rights.!!

    But there are governments that do not do that. I think they lack that because women, with their political participation, bring them out of the private sphere represented by the family into the public sphere, and also help to reconsider the perceptions and visions that govern the sharing of roles between men and women. It also helps in making decisions and empowering women. From obtaining and exercising rights and contributing to the management and direction of society, it is also an indicator and indicator of the dynamism of citizen empowerment and a criterion for the redistribution of power circles between the sexes and the improvement of the mechanisms of democratic practice.!!

      In the end, they are human beings, and women must be treated like men and not discriminate between them, and I do not mean that men are not important in this life, but the man is given all his rights, or the woman is sometimes oppressed.
      And nowadays, there are many women who have accomplished achievements that no man has been able to

    Gender bias is the tendency to prefer one gender over another
    Gender bias is the tendency to prefer one gender over another.
    In today’s society, gender bias is often used to refer to the preferential treatment men receive — specifically white, heterosexual males. It’s often labeled as “sexism” and describes the prejudice against women solely on the basis of their sex. Gender bias is most prominently visible within professional settings.

        Discrimination on the basis of sex

        Sexism is discrimination based on a person's sex or gender. Sexism can affect any gender, but it has been specifically documented to affect women and girls. Gender stereotypes and roles have been linked, and may include the belief that one gender or gender is intrinsically superior to another.

        In my country, when elections are contested and women run against men for these elections, the preference is given to men more than women, and this is really something that hurts many women who wanted to have a more active and positive role in society.

    Gender bias is the tendency to prefer one gender over another. It is a form of unconscious bias, or implicit bias, which occurs when one individual unconsciously attributes certain attitudes and stereotypes to another person or group of people. These ascribed behaviors affect how the individual understands and engages with others.

    The state has the main role in setting laws and laws of equality, justice and women’s rights. The state must be strict in these laws. It must treat women as a member of society. I do not have to be compromising in their rights or depriving them of making their own decisions. They interfere in their personal lives. Many women do not fully take their rights.

    Bias against women is unfair because women constitute a large number of the population, which makes women seats in politics and work. Therefore, they must be valued in politics like men.

    With regard to women, women have a say, and their opinion should be given in any decision

    The state has a major role in setting laws and laws of equality, justice and women's rights. The state should be strict in these laws. Women should be treated as a member of society. You don't have to compromise their rights or prevent them from making their own decisions. They interfere in their personal lives. Many women do not take full advantage of their rights.

    The problem of gender discrimination is a global problem.
    It is the idea that men and women are not equal and refers to unjust dealings or looking down on people based on their gender and gender inequality often from differentiating between them in dealings or from social standards, women often lag behind men in many respects, including: education, work,economic and political sphere.
    For example, at work women get paid less than men for the same job.
    In order to solve this problem, legal protection of the rights of women and men must be imposed on an equal footing and effective protection of women must be ensured.

    In this period, there is a great focus on gender equality, and one of the most common forms of gender discrimination is the denial of inequality between men and women. Discrimination against women has spread widely in many countries of the world, and the phenomenon continues in general as a result of the persistence of traditional practices and beliefs that harm women. There are many Aspects that prevent women from accessing their rights such as race, abilities, social or economic status, but despite the existence of discrimination, some women managed to occupy prominent positions. Among some of the solutions that contribute to eliminating this discrimination - providing safety for women and girls in their homes and public places - and the need for women to express their opinion in meetings or conversations, and the measures required to eliminate discrimination in all its forms must be taken.

    We can't deny that we live in amale society that focuses on the men's achievmets and ignore women's especcalls in sciense and sports. That leads us to the global problem of inequality between men and women,which is obviouse and we try to convince ourselves that it is not aproblem. I think women should raise their voices and shout to stop this and also be more active in many fields especially in society mattars and politcs. To break this bias we should remember that we live along together in the same society and have the same duty towards building our future.

    Such as gender, colour, religion, race, language, economic, political and social status
    Women are subjected to ill-treatment in any aspect, for example, in the work environment and in political participation, and the most important aspect nowadays is discrimination against women in education.

    Bias against women is defined as discrimination between women and men in different areas of life, such as social, educational, political, or even economic life.
    This discrimination against women leads to very bad consequences, such as women’s rebellion, the corruption of society because of unfairness, fairness and equality, and a sense of grudge and hatred towards each other because of this meaningless discrimination because it is just a thought that imposes on us of little importance.

    Women in our society suffer from many problems.
    The most important of these is prejudice against women.
    Despite our evolution, women are still oppressed in our world.
    In many areas, women are denied participation under the pretext of their weakness.
    We also see bias in areas of work.
    In some societies, women are forced into marriage without giving their opinions.
    In our societies, some women are prohibited from traveling alone to receive education.
    In my opinion, to get rid of this prejudice, more serious laws must be put in place to combat this prejudice.
    Spreading awareness of women's rights.
    Giving lectures to women to raise awareness and enable them to obtain their full rights.

    Equality and non-discrimination is a human right. Discrimination against women is widespread in many countries of the world, and this thing prevents women from accessing their rights, and it can be defined as treating women inappropriately, which results in them not obtaining their rights in positions and social authorities. Women are often discriminated against at work, and this appears in many aspects. Women are prevented from participating in the labor market and many of the things that women are prevented from because of discrimination against them. There are reasons for inequality between men and women, which are social customs and distinction in laws. Against women and the lack of legal protection for women.

    We have to think about where it started and how prejudice formed? What made society discriminate between people and what should we do to prevent prejudice and discrimination?

    Unfortunately, there is still a long way to go to achieve full equality of rights and opportunities for men and women,It is important to end the multiple forms of gender violence and ensure equal access to quality education, health, economic resources, and participation in political life for both women and girls, men and boys. It is also necessary to achieve equal opportunities in accessing jobs, leadership positions and decision-making at all levels.

    Given the key role language plays in shaping cultural and social attitudes, the use of gender-inclusive language is a powerful way to promote gender equality and combat gender bias.Using gender-inclusive language means speaking and writing in a way that does not discriminate against a particular gender, gender or gender identity and does not perpetuate gender stereotypes.

    Give us your answers to the questionsquestion :

    1.How does bais form?

    2.How prejudice formed?

    3.What should we do to prevent prejudice?

      we should all take care of everyone and treat everyone equally but women are not all of society as there are lots of different genders and people that contribute equally to society.

        I agree with you, but some people consider women to be nothing, so we must educate them and understand them and explain to them the effects of bias and discrimination... Thank you ❤️

    Experts say that no one can be completely free from being bias. They say that as humans we are wired to be bias-machines.

    I say its is true that no one can be completely free from bias as there are some that we do unconsciously(unconscious bias), but if we enlighten ourselves more on this we can be able to reduce it and how it affects our perspective and day-to-day judgement of things.This is my opinion.

    What do you think? Can one really be free from bias? What is your reason for saying so?

    If we can not see people agreeing to what we say it does not mean that someone somewhere is not listening to us. The world has been suffering from bias and inequality right before most of us came into existence and that is why this issue of bias is becoming an obvious problem that needs an immediate solution. Most people have inferior mindsets because of this problem and that is why they cannot voice out their thoughts. But I feel that there is going to be a time where the number of people who are not heard will increase and they world will have to notice the number of people who need to be heard because they will be missing out on a lot of truths. I am advising that those of us who are not heard should keep speaking because someone in the crowd might be hearing and when we feel we are not heard at all, we should just step back and let situation be. Most times people see our relevance when we are absent.

    Welcome!
    Today I will take the role of your teacher as if I am explaining a lesson to you and at the end of the lesson I would like to ask some important questions!!

    Dear student, today our lesson will be about (gender and its role..!)
    Gender is: the sexual gender and biological characteristics between male and female since birth, which are of course fixed and unchanging and universal (that is, they do not differ between cultures.!)
    After we got acquainted with gender, dear students, of course, every society has its own laws and a special constitution, and the elimination of genders according to their state, and this is what is called (gender).
    Gender is: a term given to the relationships, social roles, and values ​​defined by society for both genders, male and female, and differs from one society to another and from one time to another. The behavior of individuals is determined according to their gender..!

    We come again to (gender roles!!)

    Gender roles: They are the roles that humans play, and they are roles shaped by social conditions and not biological differences, for example: if raising children and the burdens of domestic work are traditionally associated with women, this has nothing to do with their biological composition as a woman. These roles can be played by men. Also..!

    Among the roles of gender, dear student, are:
    1_ The reproductive role: It is the most important and sacred role that women perform from the moment of conception and birth (especially for women!)
    And then enters the care and upbringing of children, which is a "joint" role between a man and a woman..!

    2_ The productive role: It is specific to production and the market (production of goods or provision of services), and despite women’s work now, the best value is still associated with men, despite the distinguished results of the work of both sexes for roles that were decided to be exclusively for one gender without the other..!
    (It is considered only for men.!)

    3_ The societal role: This role is considered an extension (of the woman) of her reproductive role, as she seeks to develop limited community relations within the family and the nearby community..! For the man, it is an extension of the productive work, mostly with his relationships with business partners or with those who deal with them directly in his various fields of work..!
    (a joint role between the sexes..!)

    4_ The political role: This role ends with the decision-making authority, whether in the family or outside it. Women have achieved an achievement in terms of reaching the level of decision-making through the emergence of many women leaders in different fields..!
    (Decision-making..!)
    (shared between the two sexes)

    At the end of the lesson, dear student, I would like to ask you (Do you think that women in all societies participate in political rights??!)
    (Can you what is the most important role of women in society??!)
    (Can women be dispensed with in society and why??!)
    Thank you for reading my message. I hope you benefited from it, and I will see you in another post explaining another lesson on (gender..!)

    Every woman should make her own decisions Because it is definitely her right And she deserves to participate in a press conference, a draft law, or the opening of a company In the end, this is her decision She takes responsibility for her decision Just as a man loves to make his own decisions, a woman also loves to make her own decisions

    What can we do to beak the bias?
    This seems an easy question, but it is not at all! And yea if we think of anwers to this questions, it might be to challenging for us to find the best sollutions. Beak the bias requires real hard steps to over come this global critical issue. Both men and women need to stand together against this stereotype. You may ask yourself again, how men will support women in an issue that is related to them as victimizers. Nothing is impossible! Real and wise men dare to support women to regain their right in the society. This problem requires a serious stand to stop bias. Women need no to give up, they have to struggle till the last breath. They have to prove to all the community they deserve to be respected and appreciated. They have to also improve they can be competent to men in all aspects of life. Women can work, take care of their families, get high positions and salaries. They can be even more successful and effective more than men in life as they do various types of work. They share men in so many sides in life. Men have to realize that women are not doing their best for having the equal life. They sacrifice for the sake of completing the other half of society. They seek perfection.If we just reached the fact that both nen and women are equal in right and apportunities of success and distinction, everything will be better. Then, bias will disappear and mutual understanding will domain and satisfaction will overwhelm the atmosphere! If just men think positively, things will be much convincing!
    Stay together for an equal planet!

    Why do women feel bad about not conforming to the gender stereotypes? It is a problem faced by many women who are able to break free of the rules but still are made to feel different or wrong if they don't stay back where society has put them. I believe that we should not only teach young girls that they can not conform but also that it is FINE not to conform and live your own life the way you want to.

    There are roles played by both sexes, and they are roles that are shaped by social conditions and not biological differences. For example, if raising children and the burdens of housework are traditionally associated with women, this has nothing to do with her biological composition as a woman. If these things can be played by men as well, there is also a special role in production. Although women work now, the best value is still associated with men despite the distinguished results of the work of both parties. My question is how can discrimination against women be reduced?

    Women have fewer opportunities than men in economic and political work. Most societies will not allow women to become presidents or ministers, and most peoples will reject this matter, but from my point of view, society has a major role in the success of women. 1 If we girls and women vote for women and support them in raising their voice through the press and protests, so that society will believe that they are important and have an important role, and also this will raise the morale of women and will encourage this Women compete to achieve their goals Women to compete to achieve their goals 2- It is possible for a woman to succeed in managing associations and private businesses, this will make her more confident in herself and will make the community take care of her more 3. Support for men and boys for women, for example, support the husband To his wife, brother to his sister, father to his daughter, and raise the morale of women to participate in elections and political work

    Most societies face discrimination between the sexes, and this can affect the field of women’s work. Women face challenges and determine the professions they can work in. To improve the image of women in society, we must 1 work on a solution Problems, taking into account the needs of women, making studies of the conditions set for women's work, and focusing on productivity and efficiency. To counter discrimination at work1 we can involve both sexes in community activities so that equality prevails between the sexes We must work to educate peers about the importance of equality and its positive effects on their future 2 Holding seminars and workshops that work on achieving gender equality and empowering women 3 Using media platforms and entertainment Highlighting the importance of women and supporting equality

    International Women's Day is a day dear to the heart, celebrated by the soul and elevating in conveying thanks to those who deserve it. Women are the first support and the first step in the right path.
    Women have never been absent from the world scene, for they have always been present in clarifying their opinion and views on all issues because they are a partner and not a half in a society.
    On International Women's Day, we would like to congratulate and send our best wishes to that great lady who has always carried the concerns of men and made her way to the paths of the future.

    We forgot that children are girls or boys. They are subjected to prejudice and bullying and are unable to explain. We must always cultivate in the hearts of children, whether they are girls or boys, equality and love of good for people and for them, and not bullying and prejudice, as it has bad damages and greater dangers to the souls of children because it is very difficult to understand. What the child would like to explain because it negatively affects his psyche and his achievements and thus he will lose his self-confidence and is likely to enter into depression and great sadness. Let us pay attention to our children and always plant the right thought in their souls and hearts..

    In my opinion there is a lot going on to balance out sexism and I believe one day sexism may go the other way (sexism towards men more then women) but for the moment one of the simple ways to create gender equalities would be to think about wat we are saying and stop the small comments like "Can I have some strong BOYS to help me" and instead say "Some strong kids".

    :Woman 1: Hello
    Woman 2: Hello
    woman 2:How are you, it sounds from your voice that you are not well
    Woman 1: Yes, I am not well
    Woman 2: Why are you not okay???
    Woman 1: It's a big problem
    Woman 2: Like what??
    Woman 1: My husband abuses me, beats me, insults me, degrades my dignity, and humiliates me that the animal does not taste, and is not allowed to go out or visit my father.
    Woman 2: But why???
    Woman 1: He is returning from work while he is angry, so he pours out his anger on him
    Woman 2: When does this happen???
    Woman 1: It happens every day
    Woman 2: But why didn't you file a domestic abuse complaint against him???
    Woman 1: Of course I did
    Woman 2: What happened??
    Woman 1: Of course the court took sides with my husband on the pretext that he is work pressure
    Woman 2: Why didn't you ask for a divorce?
    Woman 1: Of course I am afraid for the future of my children
    Woman 2: Yes, this is difficult. I want you to calm down. It's no different for me eitherWoman 1: I forgot to ask you how are you?
    Woman 2: I'm not fine, how is my matter no different from yours?
    Woman 1: But I'm not married
    A Woman 2: Yes, but I want to work for this reason at home. My family does not support women’s work. I want to be independent in my community. They reject women’s work and think that it is shameful for a woman to work outside her home and that she should marry and stay at home sweeping, cooking and mopping only, but I want to have my own business. In addition to that, my mother is looking for a groom for me despite my refusal, but I nevertheless went to apply to work in another country without my father’s knowledge
    Woman 1: Yes, and what happened??
    Woman 2: They refused, thinking that I could not handle the pressure of work
    Woman 1: Apply for a job again??Woman 2: Of course, I applied in more than one place, but they also refused. I went to another country, thinking that the situation was different, but it was the same.

    Woman: 1: This is our destiny and destiny, whether we are married or independent by ourselves
    Woman 2: Yes, but I will not give up, and you also do not allow him to hit you again, do we agree???
    Woman 1: Yes, thank you, it helped me a lot
    Woman 2: pardon, good-bye
    Woman 1: Bye
    Of course, this is the case for women in our married and independent women
    That dialouge was not fiction nor the words of my imaginary
    I'm sure such as there dialouge happen alot around the world every single day.
    Are there such conversations in your community tell us???

    Because it is the basis of development and advancement
    It's the mysterious chest, if it was opened, you would see the world much more beautiful and thinner

    hello my woman friend
    I am a woman like you
    I also haven't had a decent life
    Since my childhood I have dreamed of being a successful businesswoman, but my dream was destroyed because I could not study. I used to look at the men of my village who used to go to the city to study and work on their mood, and because the society in which I live thinks that I am a woman, I do not have to work, I have to marry and serve my husband
    But do you know what I did???
    Yes, I did not bow down to this failed habit whose purpose is to destroy my life as a woman
    Do you know what you are now???
    Yes, I became a businesswoman of my dream since childhood
    Do you know how?? I will answer you
    I, of course, to Mark, as usual. I ran away from my family, from my family, which I love very much. It is true that I love her very much, but I cannot destroy my future for that.I ran away without my parents’ knowledge to a big city. I worked there, saved my money, and studied in the highest schools and universities until I achieved my dream of becoming a businesswoman, but I want to make something clear that this matter was not easy for me, but I did not give up.
    And I want to thank my mom who has been supporting me and is still supporting me until now because she went through this feeling
    You feel like you are bound without restrictions
    And imprisoned without prison
    Inspiration without a soul
    And a lifeless corpse that walks, eats and only moves
    My female friend, don't give up. Do not kneel obviously???
    Will you give up?? answer me
    Will you kneel?? answer me
    Your answer should be no.

    I think the world has got more equal rights but not near as much as we should have. Only 35% of women makes up the house of commons, which is the highest its been. Women make up 50% of the world so why are they only 35% in the House Of Commons. Women had to fight for equal rights for nearly 100 years and they still don't have rights. Why did men get rights straight away and got to vote right away. Just because women now can vote and go out without their husbands doesn't mean they have equal rights. Women are just as powerful as men so why did they have to fight for rights.

    In my opinion, there are ways to achieve justice and equality between gender discrimination, but I have a question, will it weaken the strength of men? Was he ever being biased by a woman or a man? I think yes, and that is because we do not apply good words, kindness and softness in words.. but I have great hope that bias will end and peace, justice and equality will prevail among the young before the old one day in the country... Share your opinion ❤️❤️

    comment for discussion!!

    Welcome!
    Women from all over the world are exposed to (bias, violence, racism)
    But not all countries, for example, in China, an official law was issued that women will not be subjected to prejudice and will be honored moreover appreciated in all areas..!
    And I literally think that's why China is very, very improve country..!

    And some countries practice prejudice and violence against women, for example, Afghanistan, where the reality of women in Afghanistan appeared to us, especially in the recent war..!
    And "in my opinion" this is the reason why Afghanistan is not developed at all!!

    So the question I would really like to ask is (Are women considered part of the country’s development, culture and progress??!)
    And also a question (Is there a difference between racism, discrimination and prejudice??)
    Thanks for reading..!

    Hi!!
    Welcome to a discussion thread..!

    Well let's go back in time on March 8th, Tuesday was International Women's Day!!
    In my school, a “heritage exhibition” was held on the role of women in our society and what they did!!
    And when I heard that we, the young students, will be doing this exhibition, I thought it was "funny" because will the president really hear our message about women??!
    But when we did the exhibition and things went "big and serious" and we submitted reports on the role of women and we opened issues about the role of women in society and the revolution!!
    And that's when I realized it wasn't funny!
    Rather, we students have a big role in defending women's rights and "stopping prejudice"!!
    Even if we are young and do not represent anything in society, our message can reach the head of state!!

    So dear reader, can you tell me (what is the role of school students to defend women’s rights and “stop prejudice” against them??!)
    And also (How can our voice “as students” reach people who have a big role in the state such as “the president, member of Parliament, etc.”??!)

      Thank you for sharing this experience of yours, independent_technology. In future, it may be best to add it to an existing conversation about gender equality rather than on this post. But I'm keen to see what others have to say!

    My Question for Today
    ARE THERE FEMALE FEMINISTS THAT FIGHT AGAINST GENDER BIAS OR ARETHEY ASLEEP ?
    Well, this is a question of much considerations and I think the the aftermath of gender bias in most case scenario is as a result of the ineffective reciprocation and response towards the psychotic view of women being the weaker sex and also being discriminated.
    I think there are female feminists all over the world like Naomi Rebekah Wolf (born November 12, 1962) is an American feminist author said, “What editors are obliged to appear to say that men want from women is actually what their advertisers want from women.” REALLY!!! Women are unconsciously subdued and subjected to unfair treatment and prejudice because of the view of women being the weaker sex but women being discriminated falls on people who actually wants a change.
    A notable example of a true Nigerian feminist is Frances Abigail Olufunmilayo Thomas, also called Funmilayo Anikulapo-Kuti, (born October 25, 1900), Nigerian feminist and political leader who was the leading advocate of women's rights in Nigeria. Under her leadership, the Nigerian Women’s Union (NWU)became a national organization, renaming itself the in 1949 and the Federation of Nigerian Women’s Societies (FNWS) in 1953 and so many feminist who have tried to make a change. In my opinion I think she is a typical example of a great feminist who established an organisation in Nigeria just to ensure there was no discrimination in the country. Most women have sort out to look for solutions against gender bias.

    What do you think about the struggles of feminists all over the world and what would you say about their achievements?
    Would you like to be like Naomi Rebekah Wolf who is a strong feminist?

        Well openminded_beetle raised a good point, Tom do you really think this problems could be justified and solved ON THE ISSUE OF FEMINISM?
        Tuesday, 8 March 2022 was the International Women's Day in which I tried not to be controversial about it because many people round the world have their views when it comes to the issue of gender bias and I think it is less celebrated in some parts of the world like in my case, I never knew there was an International Women's Day until I got the privilege to participate in the global conversation programme to truly sincere because from where I come from, awareness to important world celebrations towards the female is minimal but I think the problem is the superior mentality from the male gender and society's view . Like for the issue of feminism, I too was reprimanded for being feminist at my young age and to be sincere it was not a funny experience. I remember a debate which was extremely tedious which they claimed "I WAS TOO FEMINIST" on a particular issue on the "Suppression of the Female Gender" leading to the suppression of the female sex and degradation of females and they said something that really hurt me and I was not able to express my self .
        To conclude, I think change starts with us the people if we try to make a change both externally and internally where we find our self's if we try to stand out positively.

    I think that when talking about scientific works or patents, all peoples come to realize that they belong to men, so that they hardly believe that most inventions are for women! Why? Because it is always the woman who faces obstacles and challenges in her society, even though most fathers and husbands prevent and stop their daughters' educational path. Yes! This is a matter, and these challenges did not prevent women from pursuing their dreams or dedicating their time to study or research Now that I'm grown up (we can say that😂) I've seen what a woman is? What does a woman mean to us? I decided to do research and follow the news bulletins that talk about women in general. After I spent a period of research, I concluded that if women did not invent and did not research, men would not have been able to defend themselves! For example, there is a researcherThe chemical "Stephanie Kollek" has discovered the substance Kevlar, which is now used in various fields, the most important of which is in bulletproof jackets in order to protect men during clashes! Do you see that it was lost just to unleash women's thinking, she will invent many, many things and return again to men! Kollek also obtained a patent in 1966 due to her discovery of this substance. Dr. Rebecca Lee Crumpler also found that she was the first black woman in the United States to earn a medical degree. Oh how hard Rebecca suffered despite racism and sexism, but she did not change or hesitate to stop. No, she continued and struggled for eight years to study medicine! She also published a book (A Book of Medical Discurses).Also, let's not forget that the woman, wherever she is black or white, what her nationality, remains that courage and daring. In 1963, "Valentina Tereshkova" or a woman who traveled to space and the moon! On September 18, 2006, Anousheh Nassari became the first Iranian Muslim woman to reach space Next is the Arab pioneer, Noura Al-Matrooshi, who holds a mechanical engineering degree and works for the National Petroleum Construction Company in Abu Dhabi, where she is scheduled to join the Nelsa astronaut program in the United States. astronaut) What I want to say woman, Struggle, Struggle, Don't stop, Go on. The thing you wish will become because you believe in yourself and Don't listen to the thinking of those who hold you down, Just listen for yourself!

    Gender inequality (male, female) We know that there is a clear distinction between the sexes, what impact on the psychology of both Discrimination is widespread in inequality and fairness whether it is for women or men and rather women! Why is she always the one who oppresses why is she the one who should compromise for others Why is she oppressed Why is she not allowed to do simple things she prefers Is this what is called justice?!! When will equality and justice be achieved? Is it achieved when women enjoy the same opportunities that are available to men and enjoy all rights and give them responsibilities and value? Societies, customs, and traditions differ from one country to another. I think that this is what makes women a weak position in society Therefore, whoever puts an obstacle or does not care that she can work, use property or get a job, that strong, persevering womanShe is the one who carries half of society, she is the educator of generations, she is a mother!! Did you know that almost women in more than 15 countries still need the approval of their husbands for work or any other activity! Is this what we call justice?!! We really need to change our thinking, especially the men who think their place is the kitchen!! This is a huge mistake! Women have stolen rights and are prevented by this complex thinking So we had to raise our value ourselves and help hand in hand to raise it more and more. And I ask men to respect their wives, their daughters, their mothers, because they are women and the beauties of your life. Appreciate the woman, praise her Try to change the wrong thinking and logic To be a society where justice prevails in reality, not justice that tells only cheering rallies! We want to see that justice in the homes!!

    Gender equality is important, as women always seek to provide seats from any council or organization, and this is to keep their voice and their right present and seek development and progress

    As the advancement of cities and societies is linked to the extent of their awareness and culture, and this is through their awareness of the importance of women in society, as women are half of society and the extent of their active participation in tasks and systems. The warrior, the employee, the teacher who builds the generations, the inventor, the scientist and the makers of history.

    But the problem in other societies is that they have a lack of awareness and awareness of the importance and achievements of women and these backward societies.

    Hi!!
    Do you remember this day March 8th? It's International Women's Day!! I have a show in my school about the role of women in our society and what they have done! And w hen I learned that we, male and female students, will hold this exhibition, I thought that “it is not nice for you to participate in this thing,” because we do not think that the president will listen to what we say in our message about women??! But when we did the show and things became "serious and became on the ground", we presented a presentation and files and what women presented in society, and we opened issues related to women in society! That's when I realized that it was serious to take part in these festivities. Rather, we students and students have a great role in defending women’s rights and “to stop the prejudice between men and women”!! Even if we are young and do not represent anything in society, our message can reach the elders of the state who can help Women! And I concluded my words and my day with a question: Will the elders of the state hear our message?? Can we all deliver the message to those who have the ability to help? Will you, dear reader, hear our message?
