We all know that discrimination is prevalent in our society even today and it continues with its detrimental effects on each one of us through our daily lives. We have witnessed discrimination in different aspects of life like inequality in income distribution, religion and race discrimination, discrimination in educational system, in sports, etc. But the most serious issue is the gender discrimination which has constantly degraded the values of society to which we belong. Among all the different kinds of discrimination, the most serious is the gender discrimination which we as a society have failed to deal with since ages.
Discrimination refers to inequality. Gender discrimination therefore refers to inequality between people of opposite sex. It occurs in various areas and the most famous example of gender discrimination is the desire to have a male child in the family. Modern people refer to it as narrow minded thinking or orthodox thinking, but many of the so called sophisticated people too are in the favour of having a male child. Apart from this, one serious area of discrimination is the gender discrimination at workplaces.
There is an alarming rise in the rates of increasing gender discrimination at workplaces nowadays. Every now and then we come across reports related to gender discrimination at workplace. Researchers have also ratified this. Gender discrimination can take place in various forms in respect to unusual or unequal and harsh treatment to a person of one sex as compared to the person of the other sex.
The gender discrimination prevails in the society and will continue to detriment the society unless some strict laws are put into action. However, signs of decrease are recorded in gender discrimination at workplace as the working people are now opening up and speaking up for their rights which have put the government under immense pressure to strengthen the workplace laws and order.
