What gender equality and equity mean to me personally
1. Separate But Not Equal
Gender equality to me means that everyone is given the same opportunities, but not necessarily the same outcomes. For example, women may be given the same opportunities as men to apply for a job, but they may not be given the same job offer because they may not be seen as capable.
2. A Level Playing Field
To me, gender equity is when the playing field is level between genders. This means that men and women have the same opportunities and resources available to them. For example, in education, there should be an equal number of scholarships available to men and women.
3. A Fair Share
I believe that gender equality means that everyone gets a fair share. This means that men and women should be given the same resources and opportunities, and that they should be distributed evenly. For example, in the workplace, men and women should be given the same opportunities for promotions and raises.
4. No More Glass Ceiling
I think that gender equality means that there is no longer a glass ceiling for women. This means that women should have the same opportunities as men to reach the highest levels of their careers. For example, women should be able to serve in combat roles in the military and be CEOs of companies.
5. An End to Gender Norms
I believe that gender equality means an end to gender norms. This means that people should be free to express themselves without being limited by their gender. For example, men should be able to wear makeup and women should be able to wear pants without being judged.
