Gender Equality, an illusion in the current society. It’s a long hard way of attaining a world with equal treatment for all. Almost everything in this world is responsible for the gender inequality that exists around. It’s prevailing in the world since hundreds of years and it is not been able to abolish yet. To achieve the aim of a gender equal society, alot of things needs to be changed. Gender discrimination, men domination etc. But one of the most important thing that is leading to inequality in the society is the balance among the genders. People have created it so difficult for people to understand men, women and other genders as equals.
The strange factor effecting equality among people is the use of pronouns. In the prevailing societal situation, the need of gender neutral pronouns is so much in need that it could be a factor which could really bring inequality down.
Bringing upon some gender neutral pronouns in everyday speech is a really important today. Using gender neutral words instead of he or she would be a great initiative to start with equality.
Also, the people other then men or women have a complete right to be treated equally, and by far, no pronoun has been used to address them, why do they need to go through such embarassment when they can be simply called using some gender neutral pronouns that would make them feel significant in the society.
