Conclusion: Importance of Gender Equality

All over the world women experience the lack of equality through the loss of equal opportunity. Fewer avenues for basic and higher education are given to women and young girls, women suffer more economic injustice in the workplace compared to their male counterparts, and women and girls are at greater risk for health and safety abuse.

Historically, women were seen as the weaker sex. In a study conducted by archaeologists from the University of Seville, men were more likely present in cave paintings, depicting scenes of death and hunting.

In the 14th century England, girls were sold by their fathers to men that they were to marry and were raised to become housewives, deprived of the basic right to education.

Norway was the first sovereign nation to grant women the right to vote in 1913, after nearly 30 years of struggle.

In modern society, the fight for women’s equality is a pressing issue. Organizations such as Women’s Equality Party, She Should Run, UN Women, and Equality Now work to make sure that women all over the world are given equal rights, protected from domestic and sexual abuse, and are provided with an adequate education
