We can make a difference! Change the gender inequality mindset!
BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN THE WORLD
We can all do a few things in our daily lives to contribute towards promoting gender equality in our homes, workplace and everywhere else.
Share the workload at home.
Ensure both parents get involved in the housework and teach children to assist whichever way they can.
Be an equal parent
Divide childcare responsibilities with your spouse and also ensure that both of you get to spend an equal amount of “play” time with the children.
Encourage your kid to play with toys of his/her choice
Let your kids buy toys of their choice rather than forcing them to pick one based on their gender.
Walk the talk about income inequality
Raise your voice against this injustice and support equal pay for equal work.
Find female mentors/leaders
Ensure that some of your role models or mentors are women. There’s a lot you can learn from women in positions of authority.
Encourage women to come forward and speak their mind
At the workplace, encourage your female colleagues to come forward and share their thoughts without any inhibitions.
Have an open-minded work atmosphere
Work towards creating a more inclusive work culture. Stand up to issues like harassment and gender bias at the workplace.
Be aware of gender stereotypes
Gender stereotypes affect men and women in every sphere of life and are huge obstacles to gender equality. Recognize such stereotypes and avoid them.
Promote and share the cause on Social Media
Utilize your social networking profiles to promote, share, post and acknowledge the cause of gender equality.
