Inequality and gender issues in a state

  1. 1. Citizenship is the status of a person recognized as a member of a state under the custom laws. This context can exist without an historical background a people have shared prior to the formation of the defined geographical borders that enclose a country It is like marriage; people don’t meet today in the streets and end up the next minute on the altar exchanging vows. These people have certain attributes and a past that draws them together, gives them a heritage, certain privileges and a sense of belonging.
  2. 2. People feel more or less deserving citizens of a country depending on how they are treated. How much the state allows them to possess in terms of resources Inequality is bred through these means Discrimination based on gender, race, and social classes People who acquired citizenship through registration may not have the same physical traits or cultural attributes as the indigenous people. Depends on who are the majority in that geographical location Discrimination inevitably occurs, especially when such a society is bombarded with issues such as scarcity of resources.
  3. 3. In Australia for instance, the original aboriginal tribes were dispossessed off their land . Their traditions were termed as barbaric This occurred during the conquest around 1900s Reason being; they were the minority This discrimination would have been manifested on the white settlers Their ways would have been considered perverse, a loss of identity and values. As long as we are from diverse cultures and economic status in the same planet, we should learn to borrow each other’s methods and integrate our systems. Lest we find ourselves in constant conflicts with other humans.
  4. 4. People are treated differently according to their gender. Therefore, sexuality is a platform for inequality. Most women are denied employment because certain jobs are thought to be for men. For instance , more men would be employed as drivers, casual labourers and security officers while the number of women getting these jobs is negligible. More men are , therefore, independent and more women have to rely on them. It is impossible for people to control their life, their dreams and aspirations without economic empowerment. Even though they might be socially and politically aware of their rights and freedom, the question still remains; do they have control of their life
  5. 5. Movements have emerged to combat inequality. Feminism is one such concept that seeks to voice women’s grievances  Look out for their welfare  Tries to create an equilibrium with men  Inequality in citizenship is slowly being resolved by modernism and globalisation  Cultural fusion takes place due to more interaction among many people from different places.  Perhaps the only question is; How can we ever achieve a levelled economic capacity for each man and woman?  This is the only sure way inequality would disappear from our systems.
