12 Steps To Achieve Gender Equality

1. Speak to women and girls

An important reason we have not yet achieved gender equality in every realm is that women and girls’ voices are too often eliminated from global and national decision-making.

2. Let girls utilize mobile phones

The plurality of girls in India don’t have permit to using basic technology such as phones and computers because of infrastructure related challenges and economic reasons.

3. End child marriage and sexual harassment

If we want girls to be able to finish off education we have to stop child marriage. We also have to seriously deal with sexual harassment of girls.

4. Generate education gender sensitive

There has been much improvement in increasing access to education, but improvement has been slow in improving the gender sensitivity of the education system, comprising ensuring textbooks promote positive stereotypes.

5. Put up aspirations of girls and their parents

We need to give girls portrayals and role models that expand their dreams.

6. Empower mommies

When mommies are educated and empowered to make choices in their lives, they encourage their daughters to go to school.

7. Give sufficient value to ‘women’s work’

The unpaid job women and girls do provide the institute for the global economy. This truth needs to be highlighted more in the media, with the private sector, and in communities.

8. Bring women into power

A proven way to overcome many systemic obstacles to a woman’s success has been increased participation by women in local, local and national legislation as empowered change agents.

9. Motivate women into non-traditional vocations

Supporting women in non-traditional jobs is important in not only making long-lasting change in their lives but also help smash social taboos.

10. Job together

Between 1999 and 2010, the proportion of girls in secondary school fell from 83 to 82 girls for every 100 boys at the secondary level and from 67 to 63 girls for every 100 boys at the tertiary status. This is stalled improvement and a reversion to the deep gender equalities that characterised previous eras. To talk this gap, our efforts cannot be done in silos, but must involve the people (girls in this case).

11. End the violence 

The UN has found that globally, one in three women will encounter violence in her lifetime, with most violence against women perpetrated by a current or old intimate partner.

12. Be cautious the backlash

One of the truths that we need to remember and talk is that when women “trespass” in spaces that were previously completely male-dominated there is often a penalty. In education and the workplace that backlash often takes the kind of sexual harassment, humiliation, violence.
