We often see this issue as dealing with women being treated unequal in these areas, but it’s not only women that are affected, but men as well. The way society has socialized these gender roles for traditional men and women has led people to stratify those that don’t fit those traditional roles often leading to problems with equal treatment. Human beings aren’t innately born with these perceptions of how men and women should act and behave.
For education to be a path to gender equality, it must benefit woman equally to man. But the benefit of education depends on the equality of education including equality of access and equality in the learning process. Equality of access means that both genders are offered to gain access to formal, informal or other methods to the primary education. The actual attendance can be a preference to decide if the access has been approached. Equality in the learning process means that girls and boys are treated equally and have equal opportunities to learn.
Does changing gender role affect family relationship or will it be beneficial. Gender as a social construction has become one of the most mentioned topic in today’s society. In fact, gender as a social construction has given a lot of disadvantages too many women, men, and families.

Traditional values teach that men should provide and work for their family while women should just be mothers and take care of their homes for their husbands. While traditional values are fading away and women are becoming independent and powerful in today’s society, some people continue to follow the same archaic beliefs. According to Rick Nauert, “Sexism also has the potential to shape how women think, feel and behave towards men in general” (Nauert). It is necessary for men to view women as capable leaders and not just caregivers so that women can feel respected. If a woman’s opinion of men changes simply from a sexist remark, it must be very difficult for an artist to constantly feel discriminated against simply because of her gender.
Since the beginning of time, gender has played a big role in how one acts and how one is looked upon in society. From a young age children are taught to be either feminine or masculine. Why is it that gender plays a big role in the characteristics that one beholds?

Women have been taught to be feeble to men and depend on them for social and economical happiness.
In our society today, men and women perform distinctly different roles which are based on nothing more than their biological gender. Although these roles do not hold true for each individual, the majority of people live out their lives in accordance with these extremely pervasive roles. Society tends to assign classes of social roles to "male" individuals and classes of social roles to "female" individuals (as society perceives their sexes). These gender roles limit what both males and females can and cannot do. Gender roles enslave individuals and force them to be what others want them to be.
Women are given a set of expectations, roles, and limitations within institutions run by men that have long been embedded into society and feminism seeks to change the unproportionate power which would ultimately lead to a more equally represented body of people. Feminism is a tool that can aid women in abolishing all the connotations that come with gender. In One Is Not Born A Woman, Monique Wittig argues that "To refuse to be a woman...does not mean that one has to become a man," to refuse to conform to the ideal images of women, and to break free from the social constraints, stereotypes, controlling images, expectations, and oppression from social institutions does not mean becoming a man. Feminists aren 't aiming to make everyone a man, it does not aim to "bring down" men or favor women, its goal is to liberate all oppressed groups because the privileges exclusive to men "should be considered as the entitlement of everyone" according to Peggy McIntosh in White Privilege: Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack. Feminism today is very important because it is not longer exclusive, and advocates for fairness for all (people of all ethnicities, any race, any religion, any social class, community, sexuality, etc).
This is because everyone will be given a fair ground so as to participate in the decision-making process. The issues addressed in the decision-making process will also be given equal consideration and in the end the society will have accomplished its aim of better decision making. The need and interest of the people will also be met because society will have unity due to the removed sense of inequality. Research has also shown that growing equality between men and women will be able to reduce the poverty level in the society. It had been argued in the past that women are more likely to live in poverty as opposed to men; therefore, with growing equality on the subject parties, both men and women will have fair and equal operational ground.
However, even though our communication styles are so different, men and women can learn to adapt these communication styles to work together in harmony. Although we can say and know what to do to compromize and find the way out of misunderstanding each other, anyway man is man, woman is woman and when it comes to solve you own problem with your partner, you don't rememeber all you have studied to improve your relationship with your beloved. the fact that women are emotional will always be like that,i believe it's because we were created that way. Anyway, for instance, i feel some kind of powerand i'm sure many women do too, when men still ask themselves the same stupid question," What do women really want? ", a question that bothers men a lot.
