Why should gender equality be just about women?
Gender equality as a term is being misused by many; the concept of gender equality does not just concern women but, also to other genders at the same time.
Gender equality the name in itself implies what it is precisely about; it is about ‘GENDER EQUALITY’, to treat all genders equally.
The concept is not just limited to women’s right, their choices and benefits, but it goes way beyond that, it is about the benefits given to all the genders equally, be it any, and if looked at it otherwise, then all the meaning of the term is drowned in water.
It is not about empowering just women or giving them the right to vote, or equal salary, or even better education, it is about treating them as equal to other genders but at the same time providing other genders with the same opportunities as well, and this understanding is exactly what many lacks nowadays.
