Gender Equality and Justice

There is increasing evidence that much greater bias operates at the unconsciousness. The distinction between male, female and third gender have been always been a matter of discussion in the society. The term gender and sex have been used interchangeably. However, there is distinction between the two. In 1969, Robert Stoller used the terms ‘sex’ to pick biological traits and ‘gender’ to pick out the amount of femininity and masculinity in a person exhibited. An Implicit bias focus puts people at a net disadvantage due to gender. They invite discrimination towards gender. Hence sex is an assigned status but gender is an achieved status. The struggle for rights, freedom and justice has been a considerable mainstream. Gender is understood as the relationship between sociological sex and behavior. Apart from this, the third gender or the transgender, which on including them the term ‘gender’ is not only determined by the sex, but also therefore determined by the tasks, roles and functions given by the society in their private and public life. These inequalities among or differences among genders are not only in resources but also in opportunities and power. These can also be classified as the discrimination among the spheres of political, social or economic rights. Therefore we only understand that it encompasses a wider scope of addressing the fair and equal justice to men and transgender and not specially to women only.
