For the creation of the world or for our own existence, the role of both man and woman is indispensable. If the man is bearer of the seed then woman is responsible to give birth and raise the child. Then from where this concept of gender inequality arises. Man to be born as superior and woman should be under him; to look after his need and necessities. For a developed and well-structured society, the contribution of both is important. We have seen many examples and can compare the impact of the result of gender inequality. Suppose in one side there is Pakistan where women are put under severe restrictions and given less freedom to enjoy their rights whereas on the other hand in India, both the gender are given equal opportunities and development is increasing day by day. Even though gender inequality is slowly decreasing but at many times people are trying to make every situation a battle of the two sexes. Starting from pursuing of a career like girl (fragile) to be doctor, boy (masculine/tough) to be engineer to the bread winner and house maker: all these instances shows the world of a ‘Man dominance’. High time we should, recognize and heartily accept the ability and capability of the power of both the sexes and work towards a developed nation; is the time of the hour.
