What have you learnt from someone else about gender equality?

The Global Conversation means many of you are connecting with students in other countries, which means you are finding out lots of new information, hearing other viewpoints and learning from different perspectives.

What's the most important thing about gender equality that you have learnt from someone else on the Student Hub? And who said it?

What makes it important?

  • This might be something that surprised you and changed how you see things, or expanded your knowledge
  • It might be a point that disagreed with your own view, that made you change your mind
  • It might be someone writing about something that is beyond your own experience and taught you something new

...or it might be something else entirely! You might need to do a bit more reading on the Student Hub before you add your answer, so you have something to write about!

What's important is that it's something you learnt FROM SOMEONE ELSE ON THE STUDENT HUB - MAKE SURE YOU USE THEIR NAME.

    The important thing that I have learnt from the student hub is how gender inequality in the workplace can have such a great effect on the women and men who are involved I learnt that the gender pay gap is something that needs to be dealt with.

    What I learnt from the student hub that changed my view from somethings ,like I always engaged in unconscious bias. I biased some girls and I did not know what I was doing ,till I found out about unconscious bias and it has changed my mindset about how I judge people.

    I leant about the bias in sport , how women are treated unfairly and I mostly learnt on how gender bias begins at an early stage and it can be stopped at that stage If we can start putting in the ideology of gender equality in the minds of the new generation to come we would soon eradicate a great number of inequality in the world.

      this is very good comment victorius wilddog, I think it is good to be aware that you can look at your generation, you and your friends, and aim for equality at your level. it is good to be reminded that you can do things around you. So you have been inspired by others, how do you think you can now inspire your generation to avoid inequality? what actions you can do on a daily basis to help the change?

        For my generation i would advice that when we get married and give birth we should teach our children,both genders that no one is above the other and if one can be in the kitchen so can the other, if one washes the car so can the other, if one wants to be in the military so can the other. If we all do this gradually inequality will soon start fading away.

    I would like to share something I learnt from "inventive_analysis'
    They said, "Personally I feel that women should be allowed to eat the amount of food they like and should not be critized about it. Society does not even help the matter by making rude and nasty comments at women who eat a lot. We are trying to solve gender inequality but some people are out there building up more stereotypes in the community".
    This is really important because I myself do not see the reason why women are not allowed to eat the amount they desire or what they feel they will be satisfied with and it is not fair on their side because in our homes it is a common thing that the women do the cooking, and at the end of it they do not get to eat the desired amount of what they produced! From my perspective this is more than being biased, instead we trying to postulate that women have no say in the society today. We may not see it now but that is what is happening, and that is to show you how deep it has eaten into our system. And also there is a barbaric belief in my culture that when a man sees a woman who eats in huge amount she is liable of draining him financially or emptying his store.

    Firstly, I would like to give a round of applause to willing_globe for asking this very important question he/she said "Since everyone knows that prejudice is always against women, if you were a man, can I ask you ?If you were a women, how would you feel when you find an employer who pays you less than men? controlling you until you see that you are not in control, so I ask you to put yourselves in our places and feel our feelings, and then we can eliminate the concept of bias or racism or whatever".
    I think that a lot of conflict situations would be solved if we all learned to look at things from the perspectives of others. Aside gender bias, wars such as the Russia, Ukraine war are good examples of situations where empathy would solve a lot of problems. The ability to understand and share the feelings of another(empathy) would help us share the pains and problems of people around us and would also open our eyes to the actions we take which contribute to other peoples problems.

    From my interaction with many topical talkers, I have learnt many things. They include:

    1. How to be very open-minded and to view things from different perspectives.
    2. How to improve my communication skills to make expressively communicate a point.
    3. How to be balanced in my judgement of things.
    4. I have also learnt how to link topics discussed on the hub to my everyday life. For example, I learnt about GENDER BIAS on the student hub and after discussing it with topical talkers, I noticed that there was a girl who was facing serious discrimination from her male classmates because she was a girl and this was really affecting her as she was always sad and alone. so I applied one of the solutions to the problem of gender inequality that I learnt on the student hub, I talked to her about receiving counselling and after weeks of counselling sessions, she is now very happy and we are very good friends now. So because of the knowledge I acquired from the student hub, I have become a problem-solver.

    The most important thing I learned first was the concept of gender equality. Women and men should have the same opportunities and have the same rights. Society is still not equal between the sexes, but there are laws and plans to become equal.
    Gender equality means that women and men have the same opportunities, rights, and obligations in all different areas of life. Gender equality means that men and women make decisions about their bodies and their sexuality. Second, the importance of gender equality Women and girls represent half of the world's population, and therefore half of its potential. Gender equality, besides being a basic human right, is essential for peace in societies and for unlocking society's full potential. Moreover, empowering women has been shown to stimulate productivity and economic growth.

    Unfortunately, there is still a long way to go to achieve full equality of rights and opportunities for men and women

    I once thought that people could only be consciously biased but thanks to the global conversation, I now know that people are also unconsciously biased and that is why they act the way they do. I now know how to act towards biased people considering the fact that not everyone is consciously biased. Speaking of unconscious bias, I have also realized that as individuals we can also be biased towards ourselves and against ourselves without even knowing it. So I am going to take the bold step of enlightening people on bias through social media, vlogs, school clubs and other available platforms on the different kinds of bias so they would know how to correct themselves if they are being consciously or unconsciously biased. I have also learnt to not blame people for how they behave without considering the reasons for their behavior. This is because many people grew up while being treated unfairly which has affected how they behave towards other people.

    He or she said If someone is biased then they make a decision based on how they feel rather than by looking at the facts. Being bias is a very bad idea or action because it has many bad outcomes.
    This is really important because people have biases in different things and they are not aware that they are being biased. It is important because unconscious bias makes us to do certain things that are unacceptable towards people, it has taught me that when know this unconscious bias we can be able to avoid them.

    I learned that bias or bias (bias) is a prejudgment on a private or public topic or issue, and it leads a person to accept or not accept the validity of a claim, not because of the claim's strength, support and evidence, but because this claim does not fit his preconceived beliefs and ideas. And this is something Wrong, it is necessary to know all aspects of the subject and then judge it

    For many years , the dominate gender has been men while women were the minority. It was mostly because men earned the money and women looked after the house and children. Similarly , they didn't have any rights as well. However , as time passed by , things started changing slowly. Nonetheless , they are far from perfect. Gender inequality remains a serious issue in today's time.The ICRW conducts research to tackle the causes of gender inequality and offers solutions for fundamental social changed. The organization works with NGOs, government and private sector actors to conduct research and develop and guide strategies that build policies, programs and practices. In its research, the ICRW identifies obstacles that prevent women from being economically empowered and able to fully participate in society. The ICRW translates these obstacles into a path of action that honors women’s humans rights and ensures gender equality.In Lebanon A report by Human Rights Watch published in January shows clearly that divorce laws “discriminate against women”. Based on three years of research and incorporating 447 cases, the report details how Lebanon’s personal status laws.In fact, Lebanese women are prevented from seeing their children and taking care of their affairs, under pressure after the divorce ceremony.In addition to society's view of it as a disgrace to them. This is in addition to calling her a "divorcee".This was a close example that we are facing as a lebanese women But there are questions that arise , where will we go with this backwardness? And will we get rid of this discrimination? And in what ways?

    I would like to share something I learnt from inventive _analysis
    In their post which talked about gender bias in eating, they mentioned that women or girls are expected to eat less than males and from the comment section under her post, I realized that the bias in eating could be traced back to how the media portrays the ideal female. I also realized that this kind of bias- even though it seems irrelevant- could be very harmful to people around us. For example I found out after some research that about 0.35 percent of all women face eating disorders while only 0.1 percent of men have such disorders. This information served to reaffirm what Inventive analysis wrote in their post.
    This is really important because I realized the extent to which the unconscious biases that each and every one of us might have- be it gender related or not- could harm people in unimaginable ways even though we might hardly notice. Inventive_ analysis' post made me realize that the butterfly effect does apply in every action I take. It made me more conscious of the things I do and how they affect others around me and surely enough after a short while, I realized that many of my regular habits such as refusing to play soccer with girls because I didn't want to "hurt" them actually made them feel bad and inferior. Due to the positive influence form inventive_ analysis' post, I am sure I have become a better person because I have resolved a lot of unconscious biases that I had before.

    In fact, I am a person who does not back down from his point of view at all, because I trust myself, but I learned from here, that even if I am confident from my point of view, I must respect the views of others, because everything has its pros and cons, but I there is a thing is better than the other.
    For example, I thought at the beginning of this project that inequality is normal, it makes for each gender its own things, but I changed my mind, equality makes life more beautiful, and gives greater opportunities, and wider spaces for thinking, when women think about Housework, for example, with repetition of thinking about the same thing, will reduce her mental abilities, and also the routine and habits must be broken sometimes, and on the other hand, some women are creative in housework,
    This makes things taste different.

        At first, thank you, but to accept the opinion of others does not mean that I have abandoned my opinion, but as you said we have to accept the opinions of others, and also, that everyone has his opinion and there is no wrong opinion, because the person certainly thought before taking it into account Cray for him, but there is the correct one and there is the more correct , and the more correct one is what we must follow.

    They said ''Gender inequality is a human fight not a female fight'' on a placard.
    This is really important because women face gender inequality a lot and I think that it is important to remember that everyone should try to stop this because it is hard for females and it is unfair that people are treated differently as everyone should be treated the same.

    There is something new I have learnt from rational_grape's post. They said, "We can break this bias by giving equal opportunities to everyone in the society and for us to make big change it must start in our households and childhoods.". Well done rational_grape for realizing and explaining what we simply need to do to "make big change". When I read your post sometime ago, I remembered an adage I have heard many times over, "Charity begins at home." This set me thinking that solving this problem of gender biases is similar to building charity as said in the adage. Just as being charitable begins at home, so does solving gender inequality. I believe that it's like starting from the roots and working your way up the whole tree. Treat the women facing prejudices the same way you would treat your sister whom you love and hopefully the problem would be solved.
    Thanks again rational_grape for insight into this problem.

    They said inferiority complex has negative effect on people most especially women. People who suffer from inferiority complex due to bias often suffer from low self esteem, low self confidence and fear, this is because they have been deprived of their rights to express themselves properly.
    This is really important because in my opinion women should be given opportunities to express themselves the best way they can. If this is done, the world develop faster than it is.

In a state of no confidence and insecurity, bring a pen and paper, then write the advantages you see in yourself.

    They said that the causes of equality are equity in employment, uneven access to education and lack of legal protection for women. Only one third of the population of women are educated, out of this percentage another one third face discrimination at work places and lack legal protection.
    This is really important because after identifying the cause of the problem of gender inequality, we all need to stand for break the bias.

    Champion_signature brought up a great topic on gender bias that is very true to me. The post was titled; The Dressing (Fashion) Bias. It taught me that women's dressing style is criticized by many people in the media compared to men's dress code. It is seen rude for a woman to wear a dress slightly higher above the knees but a man putting on earrings and sagging will not be condemned for his dress code. What I like with champion_signature's post is that it's relatable to emotional_piano's post on women being biased against women because, in the short story he gave, the principal of the school can shout t a girl for wearing short clothes to school but cannot complain to boys who wearing indecent clothes and is another bias is that the woman is not caring at all about the men there. It's like two biases at once. I enjoyed the posts given by champion_signature and emotional_piano. BREAK THE BIAS.

The starter helped me know that women can do a lot more in sports than we know if only we are given the opportunity.

    I would like share what I learnt from jocular_explanation.
    In their post which talks about the stereotype that has been made in education which is boys doing better than girls in mathematics and science subjects and girls either do well in art courses or home-making. I realised that it is unnecessary to dwell on wither a gender is good at certain subject or not. jocular_explanation have made known to me that some boys are interested in interior decorating, culinary arts, and other related courses but, they are often criticized because of their "odd" taste...
    This is really important because I realized the extent to which the unconscious biases that each and every one of us might have be it gender related or not, could harm people in unimaginable ways even though we might hardly notice it. jocular_explanatin has drawn my attention to the way we have stereotyped certain things even in the school setting and has highlighted that the best way to start getting rid of bias in the educational system, is for teachers to know that their actions bear biased tendencies and the sooner they realize and reduce the level of stereotyping, the closer to closing the bridge of biasness we will be.

    In many societies, women are subjected to violence and are always seen as needing someone to take care of their affairs. In Arab society in particular, there is a saying repeated by men (the woman is deficient in reason and religion), and the Islamic religion has interpreted the meaning of this concept as follows: the absence of religion because she does not pray or fast during menstruation and postpartum, and they do not spend the prayer because they spend breakfast in Ramadan.
    As for what is meant by lack of reason, it indicates that if a woman gives her testimony in Sharia courts, then the testimony of a woman is equivalent to half of a man’s testimony for fear that her testimony will be forgotten or shortened.
    Despite this obvious explanation, this saying is still in circulation when a situation with a woman happens and she fails a little.
    The question arises: why this opinion on the part of the man? Why does he insist on his position knowing that the woman is next to him? Are there still some sediments from the ancient world that humans controlled?

        I think this bias is like the rest of the bias, when something is designed to be unsuitable for a woman, it's almost the same thing.
        Also, prejudice is opinions, some people want it to stay, and some of whom prejudice is an obstacle to it, but if fines are imposed on people who are biased, society can become less biased, other penalties can also be imposed such as preventing them from leaving the house for a period For a specific period, or for him to perform the home services for a specific period, this will make him feel what women feel, and this may change his opinion.

    I learned from the equality project that women have many rights. We cannot say the man works and the women does not. the man goes out and the women does not. Rather, the women takes care of her children, raises them, and takes care of them.
    Without the presence of women, the next generation would be corrupt. The mother raises the new generations on good morals. Therefore, we must consider that and men must respect women, appreciate their efforts and give them their full rights without any hesitation.

    Most girls have been denied their right to education and others do not have the privilege to complete school. They learn for a few years and then drop to get married to old men. Nigerian accounts for about 45% of out-of-school children. In West Africa, with over 10 million out-of-school children. The reason for this inequality is the culture and ideology of some parts of Nigeria.

    I would like to share something I learnt from jocular_explanation
    They said With a comment I wrote when I talked about bias in shoe manufacturers, she gave the names of global companies made by men, but some of the women-owned companies were not very popular at all I realized that not only is there a prejudice against women at work and being in their workplaces, but even when a woman reaches her goal, society does not support her project, but she does not have to stand up, but rather continue for the better despite the circumstances.
    This is really important because Society does not support women's decisions and projects. We see a man and a woman with the same project. In the end the man's project may have succeeded, and the woman's project was next, even if it was better than the man's project, but when the prejudiced people know that this project belongs to a woman, they go to the man's project. The draft says that the woman's place is the kitchen.
