Gender discrimination is one of the most common types of discrimination in Bangladesh. Gender discrimination means inequality; in another word, it can be referred to biased rights which are given to the male in our society. There are many types of discrimination in Bangladesh, such as gender, color, age, wealth, class etc. Among them, gender discrimination from the perspective of Bangladesh will be discussed in this term paper. Women in Bangladesh are finding themselves in an inferior position with respect to men.
Gender inequality refers to the inequality between men and women, or the unequal treatment or perception of a person based on his or her gender. Gender inequality is almost always prominent towards a female rather than towards a male. Women are seen as inferior to men in every country in the world. This form of society is called patriarchal and is one of this biggest issues in American society today. Patriarchy means that the country has a primarily male dominated society.
Gender inequality means that women and men based on their genders treated differently and have not the same right in society as their counterpart. This is clear there are many natural difference between male and female. But these natural differences must not be reflected in women life and become a pretext for a systematic violation of their rights and paralyze them to access the same education, healthcare, job occupation and all other social and political opportunities. Certainly unequal power relations between men and women is the main element to violation of human rights which its negative and harmful effects is not limited just for women themselves, it also contains many direct and indirect pernicious effects to the whole of society, mostly for children and adolescents and then even for men. While there have been considerable amount of worldwide programs to struggle and reduce this type of inequality and discrimination but the results are much far from goals and still lots of indispensable steps must be taken.
Gender inequality refers to biased and unfair treatment or perceptions of individuals based on their gender. Gender inequality is one of the major problems faced by the human society. Our society bestowed different roles on men and women respectively. It’s a hard reality that women have been ill-treated in every society for ages in India. A woman is considered as inferior to man in our society.

Our nation has risen over many struggles over the long years such as slavery. Yet, after accomplishing such a feat, we somehow find another group to treat terribly. The fact that women are mistreated is ridiculous and disgraceful.
Gender inequalities are a huge factor in the workplace; we think that it is unfair. Feminism is needed to resolve this conflict because women have fallen behind compared to men, due to unequal pay. On top of the discussed information above, women are also being overworked. Not only do we get paid less than men, but we are also presents with an infinite amount of duties that our society doesn’t give us enough credit for nor do we get paid for it. Thanks to gender roles the child care and the house work falls in her hands.
Gender Discrimination against Women Behind every great man, there is a greater woman. Gender discrimination is to behave or view negatively and unpleasantly toward a person specially woman because of her sex. It varies from workplace, such as getting paid less for the same professionalism to violent crime. On a global scale, women are still the victims of brutal rape, abuse, and violence in patriarchal societies, and even they are trafficked for sexual exploitation. Even though there are laws against discrimination of women, it is really a substantial issue.
Imagine a feminist. For most people, this mental image is characterized by many unkind connotations; feminists are alleged bra-burners, man-haters and lesbians. They are associated with unshaven legs and anti-family values, and they are likened to Nazis and other extremist political groups. According to a 2005 poll by CBS News, 70% of women do not consider themselves a feminist (Fisanick, 2008). That is not surprising when one takes into account the overwhelming abundance of stigma that accompanies such a declaration.

Although it is true that ALL women over the world face gender inequality, Syria’s problem is one that desperately needs change as soon as possible. The injustices against women there are staggering, and make other countries’ seem tame.
Especially women have been subjected to a historical discrimination that has influenced society to decide which job is more suitable for women than men. However women have confronted and tried to break down the barriers that impede them from doing the same work as men. Many countries have employed rules that favor gender equality, and they have thrived monumentally; not only in the business part, but socially too; these rules or laws have also transformed the mentality of men in countries where “machismo” is part of the culture. Women and men should be given the same kind of job without any discriminatory distinction, and the same average wage for the same comparable job; because even though it complies with the civil right of every individual male or female, it gives place to more development and shrinks even less the wage gap in society. Since the beginning of history, women have been known as the “weak gender”.
