RATIONALEIndia is popular for having gender inequality among citizens in the country. There aremany individuals that do not treat male and females in the same manner, often making thesociety of men more dominant (Batra and Reio, 2016). Even in recent times, women areconsidered to be minor and they have to take permissions for daily routine tasks. Theconstruction of masculinity and femininity has been created long ago and is continued till thisday forward. It is believed that these genders behave differently and they have various biologicalfactors that separate them. Girls are considered to be a taboo in India and are generally killedwhen born or even aborted.Some females are not given the opportunity to go to school and receive the education thatthey deserve. Women are discriminated in public places, schools, offices and even at home. Theyare not given the chance to express their point of view and are asked to stay quiet when elders ofthe family, especially men, are having a discussion (Gender Inequality in India, 2017). Thistraditional perspective has been followed by families for many years. Men are generallysupported when any situations arise, while women are mistreated and more vulnerable to highrates of discrimination.LETTER TO EDITORGender (inequality, constructions of masculinity and femininity)George MonbiotDateThe high rate of gender equality in India has become extremely high and has to be addressed bysomeone. Being in the 21stcentury, women are oppressed and do not get the chance to make theirown decisions. The rise of feminism has caused much havoc in the male dominant society andmajority of people do not want to see women succeed. This is very disheartening as females areconsidered to be the backbone of families and toil everyday to keep each person happy. It is verywell known that in India, women are not allowed to do many things and are bashed by society,which by the way, include elder ladies as well. The own gender doesn't even support theiryounger individuals, let alone motivating them to fight for their equality. Men, on the other hand,feel that they dominate everyone in the society and most of them do not have the decency torespect and treat women will equal rights.1
