Good morning to all, once again I’m Eric Opa Doue from Liberia
Thank you for this week # 2
Women are abused endlessly and considered inferior. Women always have some problem or the other to face in society. People evolved and so did the problems, they did not go away but changed from one to another. We need to realize these problems and act on them fast.
Problems Faced by Women in the world:
Firstly, violence against women is a very grave issue faced by women in every part of the world. It is happening almost every day in various forms. People turn a blind eye to it instead of doing something. Domestic violence happens more often than you think. Further, there is also dowry-related harassment, marital rape, genital mutilation and more.
Next up, we also have the issues of gender discrimination. Women are not considered equal to men. They face discrimination in almost every place, whether at the workplace or at home. Even the little girls become a victim of this discrimination.
Moreover, there is also a lack of female education and the gender pay gap. Women in rural areas are still denied education for being a female. Similarly, women do not get equal pay as men for doing the same work. On top of that, they also face workplace harassment and exploitation.
Ways to Tackle These Issues:
We must all come together as one to fight these issues faced by women. Every citizen and government must try to make it a safe place for women to be. They must make more stringent laws against people who commit crimes against women. They must also be implemented properly to ensure everyone takes them seriously.
Furthermore, opportunities must be provided equally for men and women. In every field, we must encourage women to give their best. It does not matter whether it is the medical field or sports field, opportunities must be equal.
Moreover, education must be stressed upon gravely. It must be made a compulsion to educate every girl and woman for a better future. We must join hands to protect and safeguard our women in the world.
