History Of Gender
Inequality
Throughout history, women have battled with
discrimination. This was a burden both inside
as well as outside the home. Women did not
have the legal rights that they do today.
In the past, women were commonly believed
to have smaller brains than men.
Women were only viewed as useful in the
household and to take part in chores such as
cooking and cleaning.
Women’s perspective was not of any value
and they were not allowed to vote
…Historical background
Puritans believed that a woman should be
subordinate to her husband and dedicate
herself to bringing up children.
In some colonies wives:
 couldn’t work with men
 worked with men in the field
and stables
 were treated as property
 could only own clothes and some items they
brought with them into marriage
Gender equality is the
measurable equal representation
of women and men. Gender
equality does not imply that
women and men are the same,
but that they have equal value
and should be accorded equal
treatment.
The United Nations regards
gender equality as a human right.
Definition of Gender equality
The process of being fair to women and men.
Requires equal enjoyment by women and men
of socially valued-goods, opportunities,
resources and rewards.
It doesn’t mean men and women being the
same.
Definition of Gender
equality
WHY is it IMPORTANT?
For the success of our organizations
It is the right thing to do and the smart
thing to do
For the nations and the whole world
WHY is it IMPORTANT?
Companies with a female board
representation outperform those who has
no women on their board.
Businesses who include females in
leadership do better than those who do
not.
Organizations with gender diversity
practices, attract and retain the best talent.
