Starting from hundreds and thousands ago gender inequality exists. Some would point out that there is not any gender inequality around us, but there are. For this paper, I am going to write about gender inequality. First, I would attach an argument from articles. However, I would object the articles and provide an explanation for my objection. Then, I would consider a response of my objection and reject the objection. Some people would point out that there is gender equality in the world that we live in now. As it was pointed out in the USA TODAY, women now have a huge edge over men in higher education, for every 100 degrees men, women got 140. Also, comparing both genders in comparable jobs, experience, education, years in the workforce…show more content…
However, until now day gender inequality still exists. “No society treats its women as well as its men.” The United Nations Development Programme stated in the Human Development Report in 1997.

According to the most recent statistics from the U.S. Census, women earn 77 percent of what men earn for the same job.

Restating the argument that was made earlier, women earn 77 percent of what men earn for the same job. In this case, it explains that gender inequality is still occurring around us. It clearly demonstrates that men and women are getting treated differently. If both men and women are taking the same job and working at the same hour and having the same experience. What makes that women should take a lower pay than men when women are also giving all those hard work in the same job? The only answer to that question is that there is gender inequality. There are also other examples of gender inequality that occur around the world. For instance, in Saudi Arabia there is limited mobility for women. Where women have no right to drive a car or ride a bicycle on public roads. Also in Chile and Lesotho, women lack the right to own land. All deeds must include the name of a man, the husband or father, and if one of those man die,
