Following Conclusions were made;
There is no single factor that can be specified as
the main cause of gender inequality. This can
more accurately be found in the way that multiple risk
factors clustered together and cause women
oppressions and also gender inequality.
The family is the primary source of socialization; the
family’s conduct and values greatly influence the
socialization of their children. These children grow up
to act as similar parental figures to their parents.
Therefore, it is important to raise awareness among families about the
importance of raising children in a healthy, non-discriminatory, and
violence-free environment. The study indicated that gender roles are social
constructs that are propagated by parents during childhood. Both sexes
suffer from its consequences. With women assuming more productive and
income-generating roles, many men feel their supremacy to be threatened.
Many even wondered about the role that they will be expected to play in
As a result, violence is likely to be perceived as a defense used by men to
protect their vanishing role. A way to combat VAW would therefore be to
break the gender-role stereotypes and encourage individuals to assume the
social roles that they themselves choose, regardless of their gender
Following Recommendations were made;
Parents should socialized their children in gender neutral
Both Genders must have equal opportunity to get
There should be equal distribution of resources.
Job opportunities must be given to both girls and boys
from their parents.
Text book board should exclude the data based
on gender biasness.
Media must check the programmes,
advertisements, dramas and all to check the
presented gender order.
Print media mostly presenting female as flexible,
sensible and sacrificing males need check in and
children are adopting such stereotype, gender
roles and gender appropriate behaviours and
