Put off gender discrimination and set off gender equality at homeHome is a place where the gender discrimination begins. Gender discrimination is common in our country because our ancestors have generated a gender stereotypical definition, rules and regulations, roles and responsibilities based on the gender and it is being followed by the parents at home. If you are a woman, then your role is to cook food, wash clothes, take care of the home and do all the household chores inside the home. But if you are a man, then you should be financially responsible and must do all the household chores outside the home. This unfair treatment based on the gender first begins at home and continues in the society. Nowadays many parents allow their girl children outside the home to pursue their studies and to achieve their career. But still, once we step out of our home, we all can experience gender inequality in the workplace, educational institutions, sports, political organizations, etc. Gender discrimination is not a woman's issue; it is a human issue because showing a difference in the gender affects both men and the women. Gender bias leads to an unwanted conflict between the genders, poor morality, violence and harassment issues.
Good parenting reduces the social problems that happen frequently in the society. So, it is the responsibility of the parents to raise their children as a responsible citizen eliminating the gender stereotypes as far as the gender inequality problem is concerned. Why practice a differential treatment between sons and daughters? Both men and women have the capacity to lead a confident, courageous and an independent life in the society. Treating the sons and daughters equally at home will promote humanity and respect for each individual irrespective of their gender.
Both gender discrimination and gender equality begin at home. Instead of striving for equality in the society, let us put off gender discrimination and set off gender equality at home. When the home changes, then the society automatically adapts to the change.
