Paragraph on Gender Equality
Gender equality means equal treatment both to male and female. It also means the equal rights enjoyed both by the male and female. There can be no denying the fact of its importance. If a female is not ensured equal rights, her sufferings know no bounds.
The development of the country can not be thought of if the rights of the females are not ensured. So the importance of gender equality cannot be denied. To speak the very truth the condition of gender discrimination is very vulnerable. In Bangladesh. gender discrimination begins at birth.
A girl is born to .an unwelcome world. It is thought that she has come to this world to add miseries to her family. She is confined within the four walls of the house. She has to do all household work. She is deprived of all rights. She lives at the mercy of other people.
She is considered to be a burden for her family. Gender equality is not maintained at all in Bangladesh. Ignorance, prejudice, religious misinterpretation, social values and outlook are the social barriers to gender equality. There are many other reasons which are responsible for gender inequality.
Society, ignorant people, and uneducated parents are responsible for these barriers. Women constitute half of our total population. So keeping half of our generation in the darkness the development of the country can not be thought of.
So gender equality is related to the overall development in our country. To ensure gender equality first of all females should have the right to receive education. There should be no distinction between the male and the female.
Allah Himself has drawn no distinction between the male and the female. The females should be guaranteed equal rights. They should not be deprived of any rights. Prejudices should be uprooted. The social outlook towards females should be changed.
Religious misinterpretation should be abolished. Early marriage should be stopped. If we can do all these things,gender equality can be ensured in Bangladesh.
