I agree with Proposal A. we all know gender equality and gender justice are not the same terms. As justice comes with equality. Equality means that we all get equal opportunities in every field between various people, situations, professions, etc. Albeit equality is closely related to justice. It is necessary to establish equality first which will ultimately lead to justice for all.
Gender equality has been a question since history. In our constitution, our first fundamental right which is secure to all the citizens starts with article-14 which means equality before the law and equal protection of rights even in the preamble of India which is the identity card of the Indian constitution also pronounce equality of status and opportunity and to promote among them all this is solely confirmed that Indian constitution pronounces equality as bases of everything.
Gender equality not only abolishes all the evils against women but does not lead to the question of justice. because when everyone is equal there is not much need for justice.
But in the ground reality gender equality is meaningful? Or do we have to make reforms in society? The basic factor of inequality is professional obstacles, violence, feticide and infanticide, feminization of poverty, access to healthcare and many more.
According to the united nation development program (UNDP), many countries neither have gender equality, not gender justice. Due to weak law no justice is provided and which leads to inequality.
It is estimated that women perform two-thirds of the world’s work and earn only one-tenth of the income which is less than one percent in the total world. Gender equality also leads to the natural gender difference in which there is no discrimination based on sex. As equity leads to equality. The government of India has launched many schemes such as Jijamata Mahila Aadhar Vima Yojana, Mahila Samriddhi Yojana, and 33% reservation for women in various fields.
