“I earn more than my husband”, Naila states while a customer approaches her shop. The sentence was ordinary but her poise struck me more than anything. “He worked as a Security Guard for a local bank but later became jobless. When this happened, we had nothing to eat for days. At first I waited for a miracle; then decided to take the leap of faith,” she continues. “With a start-up loan of PKR 15,000; I set up a small grocery shop. Five years on, the shop has a steady busi...

Opened eyes, closed eyes. When I open my eyes, I can see the gender equality revolution. Suddenly it is so easy for me to succeed where men were thought to be pros, actually it is far easier for me compared to the man who has the same drive as me. I am applying for an engineering job in the same organization as my classmates who more than ¾ are men and a man with the same qualification as me may be left out because they only needed 4 people and from our class 8 boys and 2 girls ap...

Marriage-related issue is no longer an extraordinary issue to be debated about as it is now commonly discussed because marriage is said to promote both, positive and good impacts to those who are involved in this kind of relationship. Well, a lot of people these days have a few misconceptions about marriage that they view marriage in a bad way which is via conflict perspective. They are most likely to believe that marriage promotes gender inequality for both, women. Technically, in Islam, marria...

Zimbabwe and the LGBT community. The Zimbabwean government needs to address, and solve, the issues affecting the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) community. These issues have been marred with contempt and neglect, particularly from our political leadership. As a nation, we have defined gender in such a narrow manner and this has given the individuals who do not consider themselves to be either male or female a lesser chance of truly expressing their individual i...

On November 2, 2014, the United Nations General Assembly passed a resolution that "supports the independence and autonomy of sport as well as the mission of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in leading the Olympic Movement." The resolution ultimately separates the controversies of world politics with the active participation in sports - banning boycotts of the Olympic Games and requiring countries to fully participate in athletics. It also disallows the IOC from banning ant...

“All I want is an education, and I am afraid of no one.” These are the words of Malala Yousafzai, the youngest person to ever receive the Nobel Peace Prize, a front-cover feature in Time Magazine’s “100 Most Influential” issue, and the author of her own bestselling novel, I Am Malala. Her shocking and nerve-wracking story – sitting with classmates on the bus after school and being shot in the head for blogging about life under the Taliban – brought about worldwide r...

It's been over one month since Emma Watson's speech was presented at the UN but I relate to it time and time again. From my ongoing research on gender relations within formal schooling, I can write pages about this issue, but the underlining premise is that feminism is not synonymous with man hate or female superiority as Emma Watson rightly mentioned. It is the recognition and representation of the capabilities embodied in the woman and we have tried for so long to deal with this...

Gender equality is a topic that fascinates me, and something that I believe we should all strive for and work towards. I am a proud feminist. But what I dislike is the misconceptions that come along with saying you are one. The surprised looks and the hollow single minded questions, those really bother me to be honest. I am 14 years old and I am currently in 9th grade. The other day, I don't remember precisely what I was talking about with a guy friend. At some point in the...
