    The two terms, ‘Gender Justice’ and ‘Gender Equality’ are two confusing terms. They are similar, but when you find out the meaning of both the terms, it is much easier to differentiate it and make a choice on what you want. Gender equality means equal access to opportunities for both the genders. Gender justice refers to the systemic redistribution of rights and opportunities by breaking harmful structures like patriarchy, misogyny etc.
    I feel that Option A is the best option. Women are often considered inferior even today. They do not have the same opportunities as men do. I hope that there will be equality someday.
    Gender equality is a very important concept. But it has been centuries and women are still being treated badly. Everyone needs equality but it is not going to happen anytime soon. With Option A, the option is better. If we break harmful structures like patriarchy, it will be much easier to achieve equal opportunities for both the genders. Without doing that, achieving equality is impossible.

    Gender equality is when people of all genders have equal rights, responsibilities and opportunities. Everyone one is affected of gender inequality it impacts people of all ages. Society that value both women and men as equal are safer and healthier. Gender equality is human right everyone gets benefits from gender equality. There should equality in job opportunities between men and women. If women and men are of same education level and experience they should receive equal salary from company. We can also see that if women is becoming pregnant they ask to take resign and sometimes people don’t hire woman because she is pregnant. In marriage also there should be equality in household duties and taking care of child is responsibility for both equally. Gender stereotypes are judgements from socially approved role of women and men in private, public, at home or in workplace. If women are doing household duties it is typically seen as mother figures. Society thinks women should take responsibility for households needs. In today’s generation also some people are there who thinks responsibility of family and children should be taken by women and men should follow there goals go for job. There should be equality between both of them to achieve there goals and be independent taking care of family is responsibility of both of them not only women. If women faces any kind of violence in that also some people judged women that she has done something etc. There is should be equality with both women and men.

    In social, economic, and political developments, women play an important and essential role. Their results are significant when it comes to increasing the status of women in all aspects of life and, in particular, in the last ten years, radically transform the perception and role of women in different and different fields, including leadership and decision-making. The international and regional contexts however threaten these achievements, and in view of the political openness of the Arab world, which pushes us towards new horizons in the areas of human rights, political contribution, and participation, women still need to support empowerment and exploit their capabilities and potential. Equality between women and men is first a social justice issue, allowing for equal access to rights, resources, and opportunities. But it also enriches and secures our societies. In other words, equality between men and women is a condition of growth and a sustainable peace and security issue.

    It is first a question of values — women are empowered to reap the benefits of the whole community. Women in the region faced numerous hurdles as extremist groups became more violent, while extremism, intolerance, and exclusion affected this area and undermined past accomplishments. This retreat damaged the concept of equality between men and women and the exercise of rights for women. It also means that movements can identify their own aims and indications of success by the use of a framework on gender justice. We are committed to mitigating the effects of the discrimination, racism, and toxic practices of traditional Global North philanthropists, organizations, and structures by adopting grassroots movement leadership and participatory grants. Our interdisciplinary approach best expresses the term ‘gender justice’ that focuses on the different needs, experiences, and leadership of persons most affected by prejudice and oppression. This strategy supports equity (equal resource distribution, access, and possibilities) and equality (equal outcomes for all).
