Gender equality is not just a basic human right; it forms an essential basis for a world that is peaceful, prosperous, and sustainable. While there has been some advancement in recent decades, global progress toward achieving gender equality by 2030, as emphasized by the United Nations, is insufficient. The UN stresses that women and girls constitute half of the world’s population, representing an equal share of its potential. However, pervasive gender inequality persists worldwide, hindering social advancement. On a global scale, women in the workforce still earn, on average, 23 percent less than their male counterparts, and women devote approximately three times as many hours to unpaid domestic and care work compared to men.
Gender studies and advocacy for gender equality are rooted in the belief that all individuals should have equal opportunities, rights, and respect irrespective of their gender. This multifaceted field delves into the intricacies of gender discrimination, challenges stereotypes, and champions the cause of social justice. The overarching goal is to foster a more inclusive and equitable world, where everyone can thrive on an equal footing.
